Box making. My oppinion and theory.

05-22-2010 07:39 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 4 comments »

Building a Credenza #5: Curvaceous Legs

05-22-2010 05:53 AM by Blake | 13 comments »

The last time I left off I still needed to cut the dovetails on the other side of the case. I didn’t photograph that because the process is the same as before. But it took another four or five hours. I did think this was interesting enough to take a photo of though… “stretching” my clamp collection: Leg Joinery The legs are going to protrude up through the top of the case in the corners and attach with a sort-of “L” shaped mortise and tenon. This ...

Bed #8: I can sit on it!

05-22-2010 04:44 AM by tyskkvinna | 14 comments »

ta-da. It is not actually done – there are supposed to be wings on either side. However I am moving on Sunday, and I’d like to actually have a place to sleep on in the new house, so I wanted the bed functional. If necessary I can make the wings there. I painted the backs – yellow! Wee! It matches my bedding. I’ll be sure to post a photo of it Sunday or Monday after I get it assembled and dressed up pretty. (This is my daily photo, but it features my be...

Well it has been the week from HE (Double Hockey Sticks)! Did great on getting started in my shop last Saturday, went on a 2 ½ day business trip on Sunday, Had to take employees out for lunches and dinners on Wednesday and Thursday, then I wound up at the Oral Surgeon to have three broken teeth removed today.

Ok, so I have been meaning to have posted on LJ’s for a while now, but I was in Wood Working Hiatus for a bit because I was at a very busy time in my Doctoral process. So here is my latest projects or should I say version 2.0 of a project I did for my mother last semester. Hopefully the results on this one will turn out a bit better than the last. Not that it didn’t turn out ok, but always room for improvement! So here is the rundown. My mom asked me back during the summer ...

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, #7 Hey, ladies and gents! Last week, on the lowboy project, we had shaped one leg and had gone through the initial shaping, step by step. After working and re-working the legs to be nearly finished, I find in this week’s webisode that I should have left the area, from the knees up, roughed in (as Charles said in an earlier webisode), due to the upcoming st...

My Prize from the 2009 Fall Sawdust Cronicals Build Chalange

05-21-2010 11:16 PM by Shawn Sealer | 1 comment »

I bought some goodies yesterday from Rockler. I used the Rockler Gift Card I won from doing the 2009 Fall Build Challenge. the I bought a combo water stone 1000/6000 ( was reading around and people are saying that this is a good grit to start with, if you can only afford one), and a jig to hold the blades while I give honing a try. I also got a nice Shop Dust Collection Expandable hose and a good system for hooking it up to my machines. Lets face it, looks really ne...
