wildwoods #1: Stick of walnut I cut this morning

03-28-2011 12:02 AM by skeezaroonie | 11 comments »

Not being able to cut up local wildwoods has been a real missing piece of my woodworking puzzle. Just recently I found a nearby Bandsawmill and now I’m like a kid at Christmas cadging local woods from my local area and having them sawn. All of the wood I have found and cut is deadfall and windfall. This includes a 30” diameter 6 foot section of Pecan from a neighbors field. The tree was blown over last spring and I cut the upper parts for my wood stove and barbecue smoker. Wh...

DragonFly Harp #10: Continuing Saga

03-27-2011 10:51 PM by Donna Menke | 5 comments »

Time flies when you are having fun. I thought I’d have the harp almost done by now- but life interfered and not much progress has been made. The new garden fencing is done, and the new pergola too, so now I can get back to harp making.Here are some progress photos taken on and off over the past month:I cut some plugs from the cherry and used them to fill the messy holes in the top of the harp. I thought that round, filled, holes would look better than the grooves, but the tear out from ...

Flip Top table in progress

03-27-2011 09:43 PM by cranesgonewild | 7 comments »

This is a project I started back in September. I would pick at it from time to time in between other projects, and honey-do lists. My garage is 12’ x 20’, so I need to really think about where things go to make everything fit. I really needed a table for my planer and table top router. So, when I saw this project on the Wood website, I had to make it. This rolling cabinet also serves as my out-feed table for my table saw. Rarely do I ever follow plans exactly, and this is no ex...

McKoy Residence #2: Continued progress!

03-27-2011 08:47 PM by rando1 | 1 comment »

There has been much wood installed since I last told you about the current project. Hence the laps in updating. I decided to take a few moments and get some pics out there and let you see our progress. This home has had ship lap siding installed through the whole first floor. We also have installed some beautiful Hondorean pine doors. The doors were made in Hondoras and shipped here. They turned out beautiful and will have a clear coat on them. We also discovered in trimming the house t...

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #4: Adding the shelf & the top...

03-27-2011 07:27 PM by Lockwatcher | 5 comments »

I cut my 3/4” MDF top and bottom shelf to fit in the frames. I then cut the scrap offcuts from the frame and leg lumber into cleats (for holding the top and the bottom shelf in place. Above: The MDF panels are cut to fit, then pressed down into the frames – leaving them flush with the top. Below: Cutting the scraps into shelf & top cleats. Nothing real critical here for the size – just make them 4” shorter than the space they are being hooked into. ...

African Lumber Adventure #2: "Pitruss" Table and Benches in Niangon

03-27-2011 05:37 PM by Andy Brownell | 6 comments »

DESIGN INSPIRATIONI drew inspiration on my latest project from my recent experience visiting South Africa to build something for my in-laws (originally from Cape Town, SA). I wanted to design a table and set of benches that reflected the cultural experience of the visit, as well as their own personal style and needs for utility and durability. To start, I put Google to the test for some images showing unique slab-style pieces built by other people. I came across a few that were interesting...

Shaker Cherry Nightstand - Handtool heavy #11: Step #11: Turning knob and moving into house!

Onto the celebration! The case lacks only wax. Flood BLO, #1 Shellac sealer, Poly x 3. Turning a knob out of rosewood on the lathe. Spindle work, no chucks here! (lazy) Freehand tapping for the screw; the pillot was done on the drill press (honesty). The knob. Notice my turpentine/beeswax jar customized by my fiance’, complete with little bees buzzing about. Installed! It’s an unusual choice of wood but I love it. Steakums (dog) approves of it in his n...

A tale of eBay, Rockler and how I got my Magswitch starter kit.

03-27-2011 10:01 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 13 comments »

I took the plunge today! I finally bought a Magswitch featherboard at Rockler. I have been eyeballing them for a long time, but too stingy to let go of $70! I thought I would just get a couple magnetic switches to make up my own. The other option is just making up an expanding rail to fit in the miter slot. Neither have gotten done, but I have been watching eBay for bargains on magnetic switches. Low and behold, I found one with about 900 pounds pull with a shape that that would easil...

the other day I was asked to be a YouTube Partner and I need to get some more views and subscribers to become a partner so please watch my video and if possible subscribe!!!

I way about 159lbs so that a lot of force!! It is perfectly level and all I used to make this table was some 2×4’s...
