Barbie Dollhouse #3: First floor walls erected

03-08-2011 03:28 AM by rogerw | 6 comments »

Had a productive past few days and got all the walls cut out and erected. Here are a few pics of the progress. Cut some shallow dadoes to locate the walls into their locations The ceiling for the first floor had to exactly match the floor so this was done before erecting the walls using a flush trim bit in the router and the floor as the pattern. Now that the ceiling is done the walls go up. For these next 3 shots I layed the ceiling in place. It gave t...

refurbishing old tools #8: A suprize from a fellow LJ

03-08-2011 02:12 AM by Dave | 20 comments »

My wife has been sick the last few days, so I stayed home from work to tend to her. Every now and then I would go out to the shop and get a little done while she slept. I had started back on the dovetails and am near finished. This is one of the largest box frames I have dovetailed by hand. Pairing and rasping to clear the saw marks. The dozuki might not have much kerf but my hands wander a little while I saw. Not being able to see well doesn’t help either. Then the mail ca...

Coffee Table #1: The Design, The Client, The Price.

03-08-2011 12:07 AM by pashley | 4 comments »

So the mother-in-law needs a new coffee table! Well, really, she does; the old one is falling apart. So her favorite son-in-law is stepping up to the plate. Requirements: Simple, beautiful, lower shelf. Here’s what I came up with: It’s looking like the materials will be about $150…and I’m thinking $100 for labor. Cheap, I know, but it’s the in-laws, what can you do? LOL. The dark wood you see on the top and feet are ebony inlays. The top i...

Ready, Fire, Aim: Twisted Laminations Cane #2: So Now How Do You Get It Round?

03-07-2011 09:43 PM by Lee Barker | 5 comments »

A scraper removed the excess glue. Looks like about 120 degrees of twist. The other flat laminations that I had glued up in the same process were easy—clean them and square them and then octagonized them on the TS and they’re ready for rounding. This was both bigger and harder to handle, and wouldn’t sit stably on the TS. I could have built a carriage I suppose, but instead I turned to my Ritter edge sander, 4×132, with 80 grit paper. I clamped a stop on the ...
