Downstairs Built-ins Extravaganza! #6: Inside of drawer case is done.

04-23-2009 07:20 PM by BethMartin | 6 comments »

I put my drawer case together and have the slides in there. There are a couple of spots where the measurements were wonky for some reason, but I got it all squared up where it needs to be squared up. I think I may have cut my dadoes a wee bit too tight, because I had to wrestle with this thing quite a lot. And it is big, so there was some sweating and swearing. I think if I had more experience with this sort of thing, I could’ve planned my assembly attack better, and maybe saved som...

Craftsman Dining Room Set - In The Beginning...

04-23-2009 06:39 PM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

Due to my ignorance with LJ blogging, the next installment is here. So, I’ve got my girlfriend’s permission to start working on our new dining room set. I’ve done a ton of research, and for me, Schroeder hit the nail right on the head. He’s been extremely helpful with suggestions, suggested reading, and tool purchases to make the process go smoother. I will build his table. I’m still researching the chairs, but the Rodel chair is high in the running. I...

Photos are returning slowly...

04-23-2009 06:37 PM by Jon3 | 0 comments »

I’ve migrated what turns out to be 9Gig or so worth of photos over to my new hosting provider, but unfortunately, the new version and old version direct link URLs are incompatible. I’m not terribly surprised, but I was hoping to avoid the manual fixes many of my blog posts will now require. I’m going to try and fix the Roubo series today, but the other ones will likely take longer. So have patience, and the links should resume working eventually!

Train Bed #7: Completed

04-23-2009 03:36 PM by Chris Davis | 3 comments »

The train is back from graphics and completed. Well almost. I am thinking about putting a bell on the front and I need to add the child’s name under the window. Other than that it is finished. After I got it back from graphics, I just reassembled it cut slats and wired the lights. I put a small knob on the headboard to activate a touch sensor. I mounted the control box under the slat cleats, hidden and out of the way. The wire runs under the cleats to the front where it plugs in to ...

An age old project.

04-23-2009 01:02 PM by Sawdust2 | 21 comments »

Maybe that should be an old age project. Turn (turned) 65 today. Coincidentally, my birthday present is a new mini-lathe. Joyously, according to the tracking software, it was only 25 miles away and on the UPS truck at 5:00 AM. And my wife has stuck with me for 36 years. I am truly a blessed man. Lee

Making Lemonade From Lemons #2: Roughing out the blanks

04-23-2009 06:35 AM by cotfessi | 7 comments »

Following the advice of some folks on a turning forum, I roughed out the trunk. I had to avoid gashes left by the car and some knots, but I think I ended up with 4 pretty nice blanks? After turning, I brought the blanks inside and dipped the ends in wax… I’ll come back to them in a few weeks… stay tuned!

Making Lemonade From Lemons #1: Fallen Tree

04-23-2009 06:15 AM by cotfessi | 3 comments »

This will be my first official non shop-furniture project so i thought i’d document it. I just finished up a lathe table from a design in shop notes, issue 10 this past weekend. I wired up the lathe Sunday afternoon then went inside to watch the hockey game… halfway through the second period – boom! There was a horrible noise… a drunk driver had swerved off the road and uprooted a maple tree in front of my house! It was 3:30 in the afternoon!!! Luckily no one wa...
