Blanket Chest #2: ARGGGG!!!! crack split in glued up panel

04-02-2010 03:39 AM by AaronK | 5 comments »

so i had completely glued up the panel that is to become the top of the blanket chest I’m building, when all of a sudden i notice a MASSIVE crack in one of the boards right along the grain. It’s in the nicest piece too, with grain shifting towards quarter-sawn texture. CRAP. I guess that’s one of the hazards with using reclaimed wood… stuff could have been abused in its previous incarnation. anyway, I basically bent it until it snapped along the grain and am now ...

The Wine Rack #1: The horse has been led to water...

04-01-2010 10:55 PM by Todd Clare | 1 comment »

I’ve been wanting to “do” woodworking all my life. Even as a little kid, I remember watching the New Yankee Workshop and The Woodwright Shop. Something about the combination of creativity and the exact tolerances and the remarkable potential to continue to learn was a big draw for me. I’ve finally gotten to the point where I’m ready. Got a basement with a good collection of tools. I’ve read a lot and watched a lot of shows… I’ve actual...

Day Bed #3: More Parts

04-01-2010 10:22 PM by Kent Shepherd | 5 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted anything on the day bed I built for my grandaughter. I kinda got sidetracked with other things. Thought I would share some more of the parts used in the bed. This is how I did the routing on the legs. The legs themselves are self-explanatory. Basically, I glued up two pieces to create the thickness I needed. Of course, thicker lumber would obviously work, but I already had 3/4” stock, so it made more sense to use it. Sometimes you can do the glue-u...

Black and White Dots inc. Basic Mitred Box

04-01-2010 07:39 PM by BritBoxmaker | 23 comments »

This is an earlier project of mine that also neatly shows one of the simpler box making techniques I use, that of the mitred box with drop-on lid. First we see the basic components: On the left are the four sides, each with a 3mm slot routed in near the bottom to hold the base. The base is bottom right and is two layers of 1.5mm birch aeroply. The top is the last piece, top right. This particular one is a three layer sandwich; 3mm design, 3mm ply and 3mm maple (this bottom 3mm will loc...

The process of designing #1

04-01-2010 06:12 PM by UdayDeshpande | 1 comment »

Thanks everyone for the great response and advise. I agree that LumberJocks is very addictive. So I decided to concentrate on detailed designing of the Wall unit. Being a newbie to cabinet making several basic problems came to my mind and of-course LJ is the place where I found the solutions to them in the last two days. Now as I proceed here is the corner of the wall in front of me with a concrete pillar sticking out. I am planning to construct the cabinet corner with same profile ...

The project is pretty much done for my part at least. The owner is finishing it himself in order to color match it to his chair. Great project, I always enjoy traditional work.

My Hand Tool Journey #7: Making It Pretty

04-01-2010 04:27 PM by Kent Shepherd | 18 comments »

When I received my “new” plane from David, aka patron, I couldn’t wait to get started on the tune up. Of course the first step was to take it apart. That proved to be a chore. The blade was very rusted, as you would expect from any old plane. That, coupled with the old finish, made everything rather stuck. I was being very cautious since I sure didn’t want to damage any part, especially the wedge. After much “gentle” tapping, it finally broke loose.I then b...
