Evolution of a Shop #11: Outfeed table and bench vise

09-13-2010 04:44 PM by Cory | 4 comments »

I haven’t really been able to do much in the shop since my 4th of July table build with my in-laws. I got some time to make some improvements over the last week or so and made some good progress. My first project was to get a good outfeed table. I cobbled together a frame out of some 2×4s with simple glue and screw construction. I took an old solid core door and cut it down for the top, edge banded in pine with some left over stain thrown on. I also put on a replaceable hardbo...

Bedroom Wall Unit #6: Panels are together....

09-13-2010 03:42 PM by depictureboy | 0 comments »

Well I have all my panels glued up. I did pretty well considering I only have 4 clamps. I was able to get them all relatively even and glued up using my clamps and Kreg Jig. I was going to try and take them somewhere locally to have them drum sanded down, but I spent yesterday with my 603 in my hand…sweat on my brow…and now flat boards ready for assembly. Well really I have 4 more to do, but I have the panels for my crosspiece flattened, and the panels for my shelving and endbo...

pull out closet #2: #2

09-13-2010 02:28 PM by ken_c | 0 comments »

A little more progress made on the closet. All the joinery was cut, a few dados and rabbits along with two bevels to the panels and some biscuits. A full interior sanding and dry fit followed by the glue-up. The glue up took place in three phases. The top two parts were glued up first then once that was dry the bottom and sides were done with the top assembly dry fit in place to the sides, and then the top assembly was glued to the sides. I added some structural members to the top section sin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #102: New Projects for the Week

09-13-2010 01:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It’s Monday and I can’t wait to start the week. That’s a great feeling. I have several new things that I want to get working on and I am really excited about getting them going and seeing them come to life. Last week I showed my editor the star ornaments that I finished. He liked them a lot and I told him I could make a totally different set out of maple or another light wood and I would be able to use the paints I used on the candle holders and tint them red, white an...

Wood Art #11: Making a Jarvi Bench, with Mike Jarvi

09-13-2010 12:50 PM by Gary Fixler | 24 comments »

A friend sent this to me, and it is simply a joy to watch. I didn’t even realize it was almost 16 minutes long! It’s a lot of fun, and for me, it had a lot of “Now what on earth is he doing here?” moments that were followed up by “Oh! Brilliant!” resolutions. I like that in my process videos :) This guy has some serious tools and space, relative to me, and works magics with a Wood-Mizer bandmill. I have most of that stuff in half or quarter the scale (but n...

I’m making turned wooden coasters for Christmas presents and having a real problem cutting sheet cork for the inside bottoms. Hobby Lobby sells 3 1/2” pre-cut cork disks but I need smaller ones like 3”. I’ve tried cutting with scissors and with a new X-Acto blades and they seem to always tear before I get a circle cut completely. You can buy smaller cork cutting punches but not in 3” size that I can find. Any ideas? HELP!

The Woodshop - A Creative Maelstrom

09-13-2010 06:36 AM by wichle | 4 comments »

I posted a look at my shop tonight and found as I sorted out pictures to find 6 appropriate views that my shop has changed over the past few months. I added dust collection to my miter saw. I moved my router table from one wall to another. I moved tools stored on the walls from one spot to another. I put some tools here to fore in the tool box on the wall. Looking at the pictures gave me some more ideas to “streamline” my small basement shop. When I check in nightly to read posted LJ...
