Arts & Crafts Night Stands #5: Dry Fit!

09-17-2009 01:29 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I was able to plane the stock for the shelves yesterday. I glued up a large enough blank for two shelves, then used the fence to cut them parallel. I then used the cross-cut sled to square the other sides. I got to use my Delta new mortiser to make all of the mortises (3 on each side x 4 sides = 12 total). Luckily, they were all 3/8” and had the same offset from the front/back. This meant that with one setup, I could knock them all out. If I had done them with a chisel, ...

A journey into the workshop. #7: The thought process so far on the bench. Veering away from the instruction video or sheet.

09-16-2009 10:32 PM by dbhost | 0 comments »

Considering the fact that this bench was designed by the guys at Fine Woodworking to be a skill builder, and I went off on my own tangent using the tools and resources I have to get to the same end. For example… The original plan called for 4×4 and 2×4 kiln dried construction grade lumber. I opted for rough cut 4×4 and 2×4 cedar lumber, planed, jointed, and then ripped it to nominal dimension. The grooves in the rails and spreaders are per the instructions cut ...

Shop made compass

09-16-2009 08:53 PM by Don "Dances with Wood" Butler | 17 comments »

A decent compass has been absent from my shop for a long time. I don’t remember my last one, it may have been one left over from my hand-drafting period, and I have no idea where it is. So, since there was oak scraps on the bench begging to be used, I built this one. I didn’t spend a dime on it, either! Thanks for looking. d

Wall Hung Console #2: The first glue ups

09-16-2009 06:42 PM by captkerk | 5 comments »

Well, I got started on the console by gluing up the boards for the top and the three large brackets. Since I had the lumber on hand and I didn’t want to go buy lumber, I’m gluing together boards to make the thick brackets (Norm of course had stock that thick). I used a planer sled to flatten the boards for the brackets since they are too wide for my jointer. That went pretty well and I was planning to do the same for the wide boards for the top, but it was just too long, heav...

Wall Hung Console #1: Getting started

09-16-2009 05:25 PM by captkerk | 2 comments »

So here’s the plan. I watched the Wall Hung Console episode of the New Yankee Workshop and my wife really liked the table. She thinks it would look great in the front hall. I thought it would be a good use of the walnut lumber my in-laws gave me, so now I’m finally getting started. I took as many notes as I could from watching the episode and then plugged the dimensions in to SketchUp. I had to improvise some more of the dimensions since Norm didn’t mention all of the...

Flute tutorial (part 14)

When you have finished lathing your flute and have plane your sides and under the flute, take your flute and drill a 5/16 (7.9375 mm) (0.79375cm)hole in the mouth end until it goes into the SAC area. Now file the edge of your TSH and it doesn’t have to be sharp, your can have 2/32 (1.5875 mm) (0.15875) blunt end if you would like. The edge of the TSH will change the sound of the flute base upon how thick or thin the tsh is. Put your block on the sac and in front of your tsh. blow li...
