First Craft Show.

12-17-2010 02:03 PM by Eagle1 | 13 comments »

Well I’m having my first craft show today. Cross my fingers. I only found out 2 days ago about it. I saw the ad in one of the local papers, that they throw on the driveway. I was there in the early morning just having my coffee. I cam across this half page ad. It was here in town, just a couple of miles away. I thought why not call and see if she has any openings. I waited a while to call her. I didn’t want to wake her up since I go to bed before the chickens and get up before the...

Contemporary Cross project #8: Shiplap on horizontal piece

12-17-2010 07:28 AM by kevinw | 2 comments »

Now that the dado in the horizontal piece is complete put it temporarily in place over the vertical piece. The joint should be snug but neither loose or tight. Score the lines for cutting the curves on the vertical piece. You can see here the score lines ready to begin cutting. Repeat all the steps shown in earlier installments of the blog to create a dado in this piece that is 1/2 the depth of the lumber, etc. Here you see both pieces with the waste removed. They are...

For SE Woodworkers if interested. There is a Craftsman Scroll saw on a stand at Goodwill on Ford Road across from IKEA. Priced at 29.99. Motor attached. This is a new store and a little hard to find. It’s back in the left rear corner. Nice price, fairly clean in an unproble store.

Time lapse Woodworking #2: Late night wipe on rub off oil finish

12-17-2010 05:38 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 10 comments »

Well we had a long day in the shop, working on a custom rocking chair which is really coming along great. Joel sanded and burnished the back braces up to a wonderful glow, showing off the extreme curly figure they have. But that’s another story, here I took another time lapse of me applying a coat of our 3 part finish to a trestle coffee table and the top to a dining table we’ve been working on. The finish is a mixture of equal parts of Raw Tung oil, Boiled Linseed oil and P...

Bragging #2: Stanley #40 Scrub Plane

12-17-2010 05:14 AM by brianl | 4 comments »

As part of my $175 bench project I did a big glue-up of Douglas Fir boards. Over twenty boards went into the top and due to an oversight on my behalf I ended up bowing the top. In order to level it all out, I needed to take off a fair amount of material. I started to do just that with my number 5 jack plane but I quickly realized how daunting the task was. I knew I needed a better tool to tackle this beast of a problem.I started looking around for a number 40 scrub plane. After going thr...

Machinist Toolbox #5: Carcass Joinery

12-17-2010 03:49 AM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

Yesterday I was able to cut the tails on the carcass side parts. I used the bandsaw to cut the tails because the blade cuts straight and is narrow, although I did get some rough cut surface this time because I have a kink in the blade. I’m thinking in the future to use the Table saw with the blade tilted at ~10 degrees and the part passed vertically much like cutting box joints, but that will have to wait for future projects as for the time being -these tails are cut already. Once th...

Built-In Bed #10: Two Down and ... None to Go

12-17-2010 02:44 AM by Scott R. Turner | 1 comment »

(The Story So Far: Our Hero is constructing a built-in bed for his daughter, and has recently reached the point where his efforts are starting to look like they might, in the end, work out.) Amazingly there was nothing on the agenda after work tonight, so following dinner I took a helper upstairs and finished the second side unit for the bed. One or two slight mishaps during assembly but nothing significant. In this picture the bed is the wrong way. The real bed will go lengthwis...
