Cabinet Doors for Refaced Kitchen Cabinets

Today 11:32 AM by ReubenD | 1 comment »

While being a long way from a furniture maker and only dreaming of having the amount of skill (and tools) needed for beautiful wood working of that caliber I did find the courage to take on a project that seemed very difficult but was in fact relatively easy but came out really nice (especially for a first attempt at real woodworking as opposed to simple carpentry). Putting in a new kitchen was simply not in the budget but something needed to be done with our 35 year old cabinets and kitch...

Current Project #4: Conference Room Table

Today 10:56 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

I may add a few photos to this as I go along because it’s going to be long. The photo above shows the edging being glued to two sides of the plywood after my initial cut to size. I’m building a nice table for the library/meeting room in our church. The library was painted and enhanced by a few dark cherry bookshelves a few years ago, so I thought I’d replace the two old folding table with something a bit nicer. After This I get to work out a chair design that is nic...

Furniture #10: Re cycled Jarrah stool Sculpted and sanded stage 1

Today 10:29 AM by robscastle | 3 comments »

I am a day behind with the progress postings but anyway here we go I used the bandsaw to cut the curves, a sanding disk to do the bits I couldnt reach with the bandsaw then the and Oscillating sander to smooth out everything. Due to the seat being a bit on the thin side I thought it best to add some stiffening, just in case somebody decides to stand on it, not that it would break but hey why take the chance. I didnt take any pictures of the actual rough shaping. Once I had th...

Getting Away from Wood! #1: - Just something different, an Iron Pour!

Today 04:17 AM by Eric M. Saperstein | 3 comments »

I just thought this would be very cool to share … I was just invited to help out with a video project for these guys and I think, if at ALL possible, I’m going to take them up on the opportunity. I’d love to learn more about this. I’ve done an unrealistic amount of lead casting in my youth doing figures, bullets, sinkers, etc. I’ve done some work with aluminum and brass, but never iron. The opportunity to get into something like this would be amazing to me. I&...

Dining Table Build #2: End leg assembly.....Splats

Today 11:50 PM by Mark | 1 comment »

I used 7/8” x ¾ thick walnut and 1” x ¾ thick Cherry for the splats. A bit of glue up. A pass or 2 with the belt sander and it’s all good. The blade on the chop saw isn’t so great and back of my sled wasn’t long enough so I had to clamp a piece of scrap to it to get the length.Cutting to size. Cutting the tenons. I forgot to take a pic of all the splats together…But it did happen

Dining Table Build #1: Intro

Today 11:30 PM by Mark | 1 comment »

Well after a month and a bit, a small bathroom reno, and a few side projects I’m finally moving on to my table build. After considerable browsing on numerous web sites, on line catalogs and posts by other LJ’S, I have decided to try my hand at a Mission (Arts & Crafts) style from Stickley. Fortunately there are several distributors fairly close to where I live so I produced a cad drawing, went to the stores (several times) and was able to apply some numbers to my drawing. From there it...
