Miniature, 1" Scale," 4'-0" x 16'-0" V Conference Table."

2015 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 27 comments »

I just finished making this little miniature,” V”-shaped Video conferencing table for a show coming up this week. I had some scrap ribbon striped mahogany hardwood left in stock. Also I used solid ebony to represent the little pop-up electrical grommets on the top. It took me about 7 hours to make. On the full scale sized table we use hidden casters on all the bottoms of the legs. One person can easily open and close the table. In the open position the top width is 10’-0&...

Garage Re-Do #10: Sales Bonanza

2015 days ago by MyOldGarage | 5 comments »

Ah—the bliss of more room! I shuffled off one old Craftsman table saw, and the individual who was picking it up made me an offer on the small Montgomery Wards one too—so I got rid of them both! (The picture is deceptive—that saw on the right is sitting on the main table for a Shopsmith 500—the blade was about 6 inches in size.) So now the space that stuff was taking up can be reallocated to some more shelving. Next up will be getting rid of the huge honkin&...

Small Entertainment Cabinet #3: Believe it or not, it's STILL not done.

2016 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 24 comments »

Hi Everyone; I used to think I worked pretty quickly, but now I know better. I just can’t seem to get any time in the shop lately. Seems that paperless paperwork and meetings is what I really do for a living. Takes me half an hour just to remember where I left off. Anyway, I posted some progress shots on my site. And one day, I’ll finish.(maybe) Lee

Ash Dinning Table #4: Just about done!

2016 days ago by TimberMan | 5 comments »

Well I got lucky with two weekends in a row with warm weather. This gave me several opportunities to get some coats of finish on the table. I ended up bringing in the base and assembling that this past Monday. I did not glue the mortise and tenons due to the size of the table I want to have the ability to take this apart if needed. I fabricated some aluminum braces to hold the apron to the legs. I also made some wooden braces to keep them square. I wanted to give it a few days to cure ...

OK, On to Woodworking

2016 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 13 comments »

Today I posted the complete unabridged version of progress photos documenting the construction of the Cooper Closet over at my Flickr account. This album has over 300 photos. There was an extensive amount of veneer work done and I had to make a platen to facilitate construction of the doors. This platen slides inside the vacuum bag so that the doors are pressed against it instead of the bag and door assembly sitting on top of the table or platen. In the future I plan to create a narrate...

Finishing #3: Spray Guns and Fans

2016 days ago by Scott Parsons | 3 comments »

Well, I was considering what to put down in digital ink next and decided on a few different things. I wanted to talk about the guns that I use first.I have six guns in use at any given time. Sometimes I have multiple projects all with unique colours. I have one good quality gun. It’s a Devilbiss with a 1 litre cup. I also have a Lemmer and the other four are low quality Husky brand from Home Depot. All my guns are gravity fed and have 1/2 liter cup except for the Devilbiss.I&#...

79- Nicole's Picture Frame

2016 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 21 comments »

About 4 days before Christmas, I started making a nice little picture frame for a custom piece of art I had made up for Nicole. A gift for a special girl requires some special wood. So I pulled out my best sheets of curly maple veneer and a couple of sheets of home-sawn afzelia wood (thanks for link Logan!) that I received from David Marks. You may find it odd that I decided to use solid maple as the substrate for the frame. I thought this would be a fun experiment, and when the rabbets ar...

A "Grounded" Discussion of Dust Collection Ductwork

2016 days ago by Lenny | 19 comments »

A couple of months ago, I got a great deal on a Delta 50-760 dust collector (DC). It was used but barely, and I got it for $200. I have a relatively small shop; only 8’ X 18’. Originally I planned to place it outside a shop wall, in my garage, to save on space. However, I found I could fit it in what was a “dead” corner in the shop, sort of tucked out of the way. I decided to run ductwork and thanks to the fine work of fellow LJer, Patrick Jaromin, I had a guide on which way to go. I op...
