Some Examples of My Work

09-03-2015 11:21 PM by BobLang | 7 comments »

I was organizing my portfolio today and it seemed like a good idea to put some of it online. I’ve been making stuff for quite a while now, so I have a slide show for each of the last four decades. Some of my work from the 1980s Some of my work from the 1990s Some of my work from the 2000s Some of my work from the 2010s Funny, I don’t feel that old, but I am getting a little gray.

I’ve had a number of comments about the metalwork on my lacewood box. This does seem to have generated some interest so I’ll write briefly on this aspect. Making hinges is a particularly useful string to a woodworker’s bow. Bespoke hinges complete the personal signature of your work, whether a box or a cabinet. Many, if not most woodworkers on this site will be familiar with scrollsaw work and many specialise in this style of work. In practice, there is no difference betw...

Hints and Tips #10: Template Sawing on the Table Saw

09-03-2015 05:50 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

If you remember my Tip #7, I showed how I jointed one edge of a board by taping a straight edge to a board and running it along the fence of a table saw. Well, sometimes I think I’m just stupid! There’s an easier way to do this and I already had the jig for it made. My wife asked me for a piece of wood to shore up one side of an electronic keyboard at her school. I had a piece in mind, but wanted to square it up and paint it black. After I did all of this, using the method des...

Hutch & Buffet #6: Hutch frame

09-03-2015 04:34 PM by Mark | 4 comments »

Picked up another load of 4/4 Cherry. After planing to 7/8” I rough cut it to size, straightened out the edges, ripped the corner posts and cut to size. I laid out the dove tail for the bottom rail on the 2 front corner posts. I drilled out some of the waist then chopped the rest. Chopping the mortices (after I had drilled most of the waist) at the top of the corner posts. The bottom of the cabinet will be solid Cherry. To allow for expansion it will sit inside a recess co...

Built-In Ironing Board Cabinet #4: Door Success!

09-03-2015 02:56 PM by Chuck McIntyre | 0 comments »

Got up this morning eager to test my theory on what was going wrong with my door. Just as I had thought last night, I wasn’t going deep enough into the bit. Moved the fence back to line up with the nut above the bearing and, BAM, it went together like a champ!

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1615: Quick Paint

09-03-2015 11:14 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday I didn't write because I was working on my "Quick Paint" project for the online painting community called Toletown.  Last year I was asked by Lorrie, the manager of the site if I would like to be on the Toletown design team. I was very much thrilled with the chance, as I had been a member of Toletown for many years and I think it is a great venue for anyone who likes painting for fun. I am also thrilled to be in the company of some of my favorite painting designer...

I took time from my busy work day to visit the elderly gentleman Warren (mentor I suppose) who has just had a stroke and showed him the jewellery box. we both felt there should be something on the inside of the lid, I chose the Totara burr (Totara is a native timber to New Zealand) and to show my gratitude to Warren for all his help I cut in a motif he gave me.Then carried on with the planned design. With the top veneered to started on the main box by gluing a strip of American walnut with...

Built-In Ironing Board Cabinet #3: Raised Panel Door Fabrication

09-03-2015 01:48 AM by Chuck McIntyre | 0 comments »

It has been a while since there has been an update on this cabinet. I have gotten a little side-tracked with other projects. I will be working on a torsion box assembly / outfeed table this weekend. As you can see in the pictures, I don’t have a space big enough to put this door together. I am using a Freud raised panel bit set to make these doors. It is my first attempt at raised panel doors. All the pictures were taken during dry fitting. In the first picture you can see the rails ...
