Jewlery Amoire #3: Making Panels

12-17-2010 01:29 AM by Zuki | 2 comments »

Yesterday I went to Home Depot to pick up some poplar ready for building. Wow . . . was it ever expensive. A 5” x 8’ board ¾” thick was $18.00 . . . that’s about $6.00 bf. I also picked up some ¼” board for the drawer bottoms. This was the end result of today’s work This is how I did it.

Adventures in Furniture Repairing #2: Finished: Epoxied joints cleaned up, new rail installed, delivered!

12-16-2010 11:52 PM by Lee Barker | 1 comment »

Client is pleased. The new stretcher is attached with three pocket screws per end. Each one was custom fit so it slid in without any undue stress on the old stretcher joint, all of which were reglued with epoxy. The screw pockets were daubed with stain. It is possible to note them from a certain angle, but you have to be short in the torso or slumped down in your chair in order to do that. All in all, a successful repair. One certain learning: in epoxying the M&T join...

My First Bandsaw Box #8: Step 7: Cut Out the Center of Your Drawer(s)

12-16-2010 08:14 PM by Jonathan | 4 comments »

This is one of the last deconstructive parts of the bandsaw box process before we begin the reassembly stages and start glueing everything back together! This step is another that might require a pencil, pen, or whatever your preferred marking method is… or not… maybe you just want to eyeball it. By all means, go ahead then! Just have a plan of action before you start. I went ahead and drew on my line with a pencil for the area of the drawer that I wanted to cut out:To get t...

Billings PechaKucha...Uhmm...Pe-What-chKa?

12-16-2010 08:04 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 17 comments »

What is a PechaKucha? I was excited to receive an invitation by Collaborative Design Architects to make a presentation at the most recent PechaKucha in Billings. I am sure you are wondering what this strange word is. First let me explain how it is pronounced: peh-CHAK-cha. This is a Japanese term which loosely translates as “chit chat” (as was shared with me.) A PechaKucha is an event for creative people to share their work with the public. I use the term “creative ...

Upcoming projects and designs. #11: You guys stole my thunder...

12-16-2010 07:31 PM by dbhost | 12 comments »

I am talking about bertch and nbeener. In nbeener’s blog entry about the $175.00 workbench it would seem the idea that has been banging around in my head is taking shape in other guys shops. And the results are nice… You see, my bench is okay. But just barely. There are mistakes that drive me CRAZY about my build here… In particular, my selection of base materials, cedar. It’s pretty, bug and weather resistant, and machines super easy. That is ALL the good I can say...

Trestle Table #2: Part 2

12-16-2010 06:43 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 8 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options Now that the leg pieces are cut to their rough shape, we need to focus on blending the parts using the router, the ball mill, and the rasp. Its a process that has a lot of wiggle room depending on your tool preferences and the final shape you are trying to achieve. I also tackle the initial work on the table top, which turns out to be a little tricky due to the size and weight of the pieces. And even though I̵...
