Quest for a bigger TV #6: Bookcases

10-25-2010 04:43 PM by JBfromMN | 2 comments »

With the center unit mostly complete it was time to move on to the 2 side pieces. The 2 side units were going to be identical to the ones my parents already had. The reason to rebuild them is to match the color accross all three, but also there was no way we could match exactly the moldings that were on the existing units. Also after all the work on this, part of the deal is I got the old stuff for my house. :) Below is a picture showing the 2 cases. Not the best picture, but you can...

Your electronics will thank you

10-25-2010 03:12 PM by Kenshu | 6 comments »

I have been reading blogs for a couple of years now and even though I work in I.T. and am an Internet savvy individual I have never made a blog post. I don’t know why I suppose I just didn’t feel I had much to offer that wasn’t already being covered by someone else who probably knew more than I did. Now you may be wondering what the title of this post has to do with my lack of experience in blogging so I will try not to ramble and get to the point. One of my many hobbie...

Assembly Cart concept, design, and build #1: Part #1 The Concept

10-25-2010 02:48 PM by RandyMarine | 5 comments »

Hey all fellow LJ’s, I decided I should try this blog thing again…now that I have a clue as to what I am doing in the shop and on this site. When I first joined LJ’s, I had done very little woodworking and was very eager to learn as much as I could. At that time, we didn’t have anywhere near the number of projects posted or number of Jocks. So, my first week as a memeber I browsed something like 912 pages of projects. I wanted to see what others had done and d...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #144: Growing Pains

10-25-2010 01:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I think everything is pretty much done. I really do. I am almost afraid to say anything though because there seems to be so many little details that I know there is bound to be something out of kilter. This morning I woke up to the message that none of the article links worked on the site. That got my eyes opened a bit quicker than my cup of coffee did. I did figure out the problem and it is now corrected. It was simple, but as with most cases such as that, when working with html and a...

sawdust chronicles challenge #7: another update

10-25-2010 09:04 AM by BigTiny | 6 comments »

Greetings all. Well, I’ve been cutting diamond shapes for the Louis cubes and gluing them onto a piece of paper in preparation for gluing to the substrate for the table top. This is very time consuming, as when you put glue on the veneer it starts to curl up and you have to weight it down until the glue sets, so you only get a dozen or so pieces glued at a time and have to wait an hour or so for the setting process. Boring, but it should be worth it in the end. This will be my v...

Butcher Block Kitchen Table #12: Nearing completion of the top (finally...)

10-25-2010 07:30 AM by Jimi_C | 6 comments »

When we last left off, I had milled all the pieces for the top. Not long after that, I had glued them up in groups of 5-6 pieces each, and had run those through the planer to make them all a consistent thickness (just under 1”, maybe 15/16”). Due to a lot of personal stuff going on, I didn’t have a lot of shop time for the next month or so, but I’ve finally gotten some time back and have made more progress. Earlier this week, I glued up the smaller sections into t...

I have about nine day left including the extra three I asked for, and two weeks ago I changed everything I was doing and started over with a new design. So the question is, will I make it? am I nuts? well the answer to both of them questions is a great big YES!!! I will make, and yes I am nuttier than squirrel poop. Here is the link to the update to my blog if you want to see my new design or leave me a note wishing me good luck....

Construction for the top is similar to the shelf: biscuits and maple splines. Here is the bottom shelf wetted with mineral spirits. i and detail of spline Here I’ve used tape for the top so I don’t have to mark the actual wood for biscuit locations Here is a close up of some repair I had to do to one of the walnut top...

Workshop Upgrades #1: Organizing the shop

10-25-2010 03:47 AM by jcwalleye | 8 comments »

Shop Upgrades It’s been a month and a half since moving into the new shop and I’ve had a little time to complete a few upgrades. First is a mitre saw station. There’s 6’ on the left and unlimited room on the right if you want to go out the door. It’s made from three cabinets with four drawers in each cabinet all made with ¾” shop grade maple plywood. It’s trimmed with hard maple and the drawer fronts are poplar. Some of the plywood in the carcass had nice birdseye so it’s finished wit...
