The Start of a Challenge #1: The start of a challenge

05-02-2010 12:07 PM by rhybeka | 6 comments »

I found some plans from for a mainly pocket hole jig constructed entertainment center. With my level of skill still being fairly newbie, I decided this would be a great project (as we need a new stand badly), and I don’t have to worry about perfecting mortis/tenon/dovetail yet… So yesterday my dad and I drove to a lumber mill in his part of the state and I was able to pick up some good looking red oak for a decent price so I can get started. The wood is currently a...

Tool Gloat / Craigs List score

05-02-2010 05:51 AM by CoolDavion | 7 comments »

In proper LJ traddition I’ve got a small gloat. First a score from CraigsList, I finaly got a scroll saw. I’ve been looking for a few months.It is a heavy son of a gun. The motor runs nice and quiet, it needs a little cleaning and I need to wire in a switch. I received some tools from my wife’s grandfather’s house as I was helping my Father-in-law clean out his things. No one else in the family wants them. I got some woodworking tools a craftsman plane, some off ...

Extremely Average #120: Really? 4 hours and I am not done yet.

05-02-2010 05:41 AM by Ecocandle | 5 comments »

Hello LJ folks, Today I bought some marble tiles, spray glue, wet dry sand paper and made sharpening slabs. I have seen many people suggest that this is a good precursor to the wet stone. So I started on the 180 grit. Now 4 hours later the back of the spokeshave blade is still not done, and I have swapped out the 180 for another piece. In the videos it always looks like they get it done rather quickly. Perhaps it is me. So that is what I blogged about tonight. If you are curious t...

Trestle Table for Dining Room #1: Planer Sled Construction

05-02-2010 01:14 AM by scopemonkey | 8 comments »

I have been asked to build a large dining room table for a friend out of some very large pieces of VG fir. The wood has sentimental value for her and has been sitting in her barn for about a decade. We sat down and discussed various design options, and she has decided on a trestle style table using breadboard ends on the top. Sounded like a lot of fun to build, but I immediately ran into the first problem:(The Problem)! I only have a small 6” jointer. The boards are 9.5 inches wi...

Trimmed Column

05-02-2010 12:43 AM by FrankD | 0 comments »

This is the first column that is completely trimmed. I went with the “prefinished” trim at Menards. I don’t have the willpower to stain 275 feet of trim. The body of the columns is a 2×4 frame with half inch fiberboard core plywood veneered with maple also from Menards. I cut the ply to size, ran a 45 degree chamfer along the edges to make miter joints in the corners where they come together then stained with Varathane’s Golden Pecan gel stain and sealed with...

My Little Shop Progress #4: Let there be light... and breath

05-01-2010 07:31 PM by Kerux | 9 comments »

Continuing on this journey that I am becoming more determined to see finished. We now have a lighted shop with Air compressor hose up out of the way and up on the ceiling rafter in a hose reel. Now that is a first for me, in the old shop I had it just lying on the floor. No more tripping over and untangling! Woo hoo! / / / /
