nightstand bedside table #5: Planing the top and shelf panels

2032 days ago by coloradoclimber | 5 comments »

Even though I clamped and cauled the top and shelf during the glue up there was still a slight offset between the panels, maybe around a 64th or so, maybe a little less. I machine planed the panels before the glue up so the panels were pretty flat and reasonably smooth. I like the tactile quality of a planed surface more so than a sanded surface so the offset and the desired for a planed finish combined to lead me to hand plane the finished top. Hand planing the top turned out to...

nightstand bedside table #4: Cutting the Pieces and Dry Fitting

2032 days ago by coloradoclimber | 1 comment »

After milling up the pieces and parts it was time to begin cutting to size and fitting up. The construction is all mortise and tenon and sliding panel. At this point the pieces are still marked with the position identifier and the orientation. I use kids sidewalk chalk to mark the pieces. Sidewalk chalk comes in different colors to mark light or dark wood, it’s dirt cheap, large sticks so it’s easy to find and handle, and it wipes off clean with a little elbow grease and a rag....

New Yankee Miter Bench Vs. Utimate Tool Stand #1: Concept

2032 days ago by scarpenter002 | 4 comments »

So I had always planned to build Norm’s Miter Bench and Storage project in my workshop, but then I ran into the Ultimate Tool Stand. The more I started thinking about it, the more I liked the idea of combining the two concepts into one unit. I am currently planning to recess the miter saw area into the Norm’s bench. I will make the saw removable so that it may be replaced with a router table, portable planer, pocket hole jig, mortiser, sanding station, and bench top. Since the...

Shop wall #1: Trying to design a "wall" of sorts - need some SU help

2032 days ago by Betsy | 6 comments »

OK – I have my hand tool shop in a middle bedroom of the house. The walls are bare as to shelves, etc. I don’t plan to sell this house anytime soon, however, I don’t want to install cabinets in the bedroom so that the walls are not damaged. So what I am thinking of doing is making a false wall of sorts. I figure I can make a frame and put on some peg board that I can use to hang my tools from so they are more readily available at my bench. I’ve drawn one leg of the ...

LumberJock Picnic - Belated post - 2007

2032 days ago by Karson | 9 comments »

This is a group of pictures that was taken at a LumberJock Picnic held at Lee Jesbergers Shop in Central New Jersey September 29, 2007. I had been trying to get some pictures of possibly one of the first lumberjock picnics that was held. I always wanted to invite myself to visit Lee’s shop and we had chatted about it a couple of times. But then I suggested that we have a picnic there and he agreed. Lee almost agrees to anything. We had a fantastic time. I hope that I can remember ...

2032 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 70 comments »

Hi Everyone; I just got the go ahead to build a 17 foot dining room table. This going to be challenging, as it has three pedestal bases, which are heavily carved, have some japanning and gold leaf, in addition to veneering. The top will be veneered, include some marquetry, have a couple leaves, which will be stored in table structure. I have to admit, I’m wondering what I got myself into this time, but being the president of the imaginary; ”If It Ain’t Impossible, W...

Carve Wright CNC

2033 days ago by Huckleberry | 5 comments »

Hey there fellow jocks. I am looking to our vast population to see if anyone has or uses the cnc router system by Carve Wright or the one that has Sears name on it. I have been looking at them and pondering the purchase. While I would have a good amount of work lined up and can justify the purchase some of the reviews leave me with the question if it would be a wise direction to go in. A good majority of the reviews that I have read have bad marks due to down time of the machine. Now a l...
