My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #156: Last Trip to the Wood Store of the Season

11-06-2010 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

What an adventure yesterday was! I am very happy to be back home here safe and sound. We headed out just after 5 am and we didn’t make it back home here until almost 10 pm. Even though it was a long day, it seemed to go by very quickly. The only negative part of the day was the persistent rain, which doesn’t look as if it is going to stop until Thursday or Friday from the looks of the weather map. We knew that rain was predicted for the day, but we didn’t expect the q...

Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table #15: Leg Joinery

11-06-2010 10:06 AM by DoctorDan | 2 comments »

Here’s some pictures of the joinery. All done by hand (except my coping saw blade broke and the jigsaw was closer than the store.) I had a bit of a blow out while chiseling from the top, still have the piece to go back in. I think I’ll end up wedging all the tenons. You’ll notice the two bottom ones are different sizes to allow for the sliding dovetail.

Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table #14: ?Curve the upright?

11-06-2010 10:01 AM by DoctorDan | 3 comments »

I’ve got the legs together now. I feel the upright is a little thick. I’m thinking of bowing the sides with a gentle curve of about 1-1.5cm in from each side. What are peoples thoughts? I thought to centre it or have it off centre opposite to where the stretcher tennon will come through.

Scrollsaw Chest Project #5: Finishing

11-06-2010 05:21 AM by William | 14 comments »

Today all that was left was to do a little more sanding, remove all the dust using a tack cloth and vacuum, and apply whatever finish I decided on. So here is how it went. There was actually not much sanding left to do. I did find a few little spots that were “scuffy” that I smoothed out. Then I went over the entire thing, inside and out, with fine grit sandpaper. Just to be sure, you know?Then I cleaned it up real good.Problem was, I still hadn’t decided on a finish. So I c...

Router table top for my table saw

11-06-2010 12:08 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

This picture shows a possible solution to attaching my router table top to my table saw. The aluminum rail attaches to the saw and the top attaches to the rail. I can’t take credit for the idea, that goes to LJ joeE. Thanks joeE.

Working out the design.

11-06-2010 12:01 AM by nobuckle | 0 comments »

First I’d like to thank all those who have provided insight into how I might be able to attach my router table top to my table saw. The suggestions made have given me a number of ideas. Who knows, it may come to the point where I incorporate all the ideas in one way or another. At any rate, I really appreciate it. I created a 3d model of a suggested design and then posted it as a pic into a message in order to see if I had the correct understanding of the suggestion. I suppose I co...

Wood Gloat #16: Offcuts... the sequel...

11-05-2010 11:05 PM by degoose | 13 comments »

I have recently posted the endgrain glue up and how I made the box…iHere it is with one coat of wipe on poly applied.. There has been movement in the workshop … I have attached the hinge.. used a slot cutter on the router table to mortise the rebate for the hinge… and added a bar and ball chain.. Add a little green felt to a piece of 3 mm ply wood and hey presto a really cool base for the box..And of course… it would not be complete without just one more tease...
