Making your own parting tool

05-18-2010 02:14 PM by David Craig | 12 comments »

Been awhile since I have had any quality time in the shop, so I decided to invest some vacation time and I will be taking a week off next week, with the emphasis being on shop time. So I have been getting my ducks in a row so I can have a somewhat productive week. Last week involved a little wood gathering (that deserves a whole ‘nother post…), I have my sharpening system and chisels arriving today, and I have been scouring books and mags to try to come up with some projects. Sinc...

A Credenza Base Cabinet

05-18-2010 08:59 AM by Troy | 5 comments »

A few weeks ago, I conducted a consult with a local client in the neighborhood about their damaged credenza cabinet base. They wanted the top repaired or rebuilt, but upon inspection, it turned out that the entire cabinet was beyond saving. The amount of weight on it over the years, including a hutch, took it’s toll. After a few days, I sent them a design to view and they agreed to a new cabinet, one built to withstand far more weight which would be a pseudo-replica. In order to keep it econo...

Gracie lectern #5: drawer and knob

05-18-2010 06:21 AM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

Well it seems like this project is taking forever, and I still have forever to go. I’m glad it’s been fun. Here is the dovetail drawer and the knob. The drawer is hand cut and the pull is turned and carved. I thought the “G” would be a good addition to the knob to go with the theme of the cabinet. <div></div>

Trestle Table for Dining Room #4: Planing, Lots of planing.....

05-18-2010 06:00 AM by scopemonkey | 2 comments »

As the title implies, I finished planing the top flat and smooth. This is the first really big project for my vintage Stanley planes and they performed nicely. I did have some tear out with the #7, but my #4 really did smooth things out. I completed the tenons and mortises for the breadboards. We then attached the ends with walnut dowels for a contrasted look. I elongated the holes in the tenon with a palm router and it all came together nicely. > Now I just need to ...
