Banquette first furniture attempt #2: Almost done (Bad first time blogging)

03-30-2015 04:16 AM by Woodchuck4 | 5 comments »

So, I feel like my first blog attempt was a failure to anyone that read the first one and was interesting in seeing it progress. The first of this series was like show starting and then being cancelled after episode one ha. Enough of my rambling. After two years, a new job, two little additions to the family, and a few other projects crammed in front of this one I am almost done. Being 100% honest some of the delay was from intimidation and frustration as well. I took a REALLY big bite...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #13: Cut tenons, make mortise jigs

03-30-2015 12:38 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

Whew, my workweek is finally over and now I can have some fun. I’ve been thinking all week about today, particularly what I still need to get to push this project along. I needed a jig to cut the mortises, and I was looking at pattern bits and I came away with an education. Top bearing straight cut pattern bits are expensive. I didn’t want to spend that much so I went to woodcraft last week when I bought my last pieces of wood for the leg and rail, and picked up a guide bushing fr...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #48: Parqués finished!

03-29-2015 11:52 PM by PhilBello | 2 comments »

It’s amazing what you can do with masking tape and a few cans of spray paint, once that bit was done, I tried stencilling the words onto the board, but you wouldn’t have been able to see them at night, especially those family members who had had a snifter or two!! So I printed address labels, stuck them on the board, and sprayed varnish over them to seal them, before applying a few coats of brushing varnish. That done I applied the mahogany trim and voila! we are ready to play,...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #12: Hardware and Final Assembly

03-29-2015 10:39 PM by Guy Dunlap | 12 comments »

It’s finally finished! In this video I perform the final assembly of the secretary. I install the tambours and handles, the backs, and the drawer hardware. Yes, I did end up going with the larger pulls. There were some very good points made about the larger and smaller pulls. However in the end, it boiled down to my beautiful wife making the final decision. A nice coat of wax and it’s complete! Thanks to everyone who watched and supported me during this build! As always, I welcome your com...

Will do the rest of it after it is cut down to le...

Woodturning #6: First turned mallet is already useful

03-29-2015 09:52 PM by DW833 | 0 comments »

Still waiting on lathe tools that I ordered that are back ordered. Should arrive first week of April.With limited tools still, I decided to make this mallet from left over oak. Overall it is kind of a rough piece. Just started turning and still improving. Turning it was no problem. I drilled the hole for handle before turning the head.Did it by hand instead of the drill press. The head is slightly off center. Should have used the drill press.Added leather pieces on each side. Used ...

Art Nouveau Coffee Table #4: Carving with Grinders

03-29-2015 09:33 PM by Dennis Zongker | 17 comments »

Here is a short Video link at Youtube where I’m carving the base with grinders. This is the beginning steps for smoothing and balancing the proportions of the table base. After this step I will start the sanding, I’ve been grinding away for around 80 hours so far. A lot more muscle work that I wasn’t expecting, but than again nothing in woodworking ever goes exactly as planed. lol Thank you for looking!

Tablet & Cell Phone Charging Station

03-29-2015 09:02 PM by George_SA | 2 comments »

More detail about the Tablet & Cell Phone Charging Station I added a bit of personalization The method that I used is to wipe lacquer thinners on the wood and to press a printout onto the wet thinners. You have to be quick about this before the thinners start drying. A laser printer printout is needed for this. The thinners dissolves the printer ink which is transferred to the wood. A fine woodgrain works best. I sanded down to 800 grid to get the wood as smooth as possible. ...

Rustic Wall Sconces

03-29-2015 06:35 PM by Chris McDowell | 5 comments »

My wife follows and saw some wall sconces on the website. She decided that she wanted to make them so she asked me to help. I cut the wood and installed keyhole hangers. She did everything else. The vases are old spaghetti jars spray painted gold. The foliage is from Walmart. Watch the video here: Here is the project my wife saw on shanty-2-chic:
