Well, it’s taken nine months, but the project is finally complete! In my last post I had just finished cutting the dovetails for the carcass sides and top. From there I moved on to cutting the dado’s for the interior panels: With the joinery all cut for the interior I was ready for a trial fit: From there I went to work on the doors and the beaded face frame. The bead was milled separately and applied to the inside of the face-frame. The doors are cope ...

I was going to work on some exterior stuff today, but, uh, it was raining pretty hard all day. Now it isn’t like I needed to work outside on the house, but I was going to spray paint the trim pieces which was going to require being outside. I don’t like it when the indoors smells like spray paint .. So I sat on the porch and spent a few minutes staining these, and then let them dry. Fortunately it doesn’t take long for this to dry. These planks are leftover from a pre...
Hello LJ’s, I have finished the box, well sort of. It looks like a box. I can do better though. I think I may start my next attempt tonight. http://su.pr/1MBC9K Brian
3 full days since the concrete was poured and things are moving quickly. Here is a picture from a distance. The site work is largly finished and most of the framing is done. There is good progress on the sheeting and I’m guessing that it will be done tomorrow, before the weekend. Decided to sheet the interior with OSB instead of sheet-rock or plywood. Sheet-rock would have looked better but not as durable. Plywood would have cost about $10/sheet more. You can ...
To everyone who applied thank you, but they are not trammel points, the are key set clamps. I thought they would be a few dollars. Starrett makes them for 34.34 and they only sell through the web site. They would be useful for people who turn or need to draw straight lines on round objects. Check out the picture. scroll down about half way. Once again thank you
grew up in Va. Working on some walnut at this moment. Let nature do its thing! Make sure you have plenty of air space between your boards. I let my stuff air for a couple of years. Believe me, you have some wonedful wood. Do not rush it.
Hello, I was in another woodworkers shop the other day, and he had these little metal clamps that would clamp onto a metal ruler so you could draw a straight line on a round object. Does anyone know what they are called or where I could get them. Thank You
There’s no way my wife would let me have this in the house, but I SO want to build one! I have plenty of spare parts lying-around to incorporate in it. It is essentially two tables, so you can swap-out the “interior” at a later time if you get bored with it. http://www.thenewsisbroken.com/blog/post/index/109/Latest-Project
Last weekend I started real work. Some milling, laminating, mortising and tenoning …Oops, I was so focused and enjoying the process that I forgot to take pictures. Grrr… I know folks here (me included!) like to see the pictures. Like russians say it is better to see one time then hear it hundred times. Once I realized my mistake I took a camera for couple shots. Do you see the crack on one of the legs? Got little bit tight construction lumber does not forgive it. See 4 piec...
