Back in the shop

2079 days ago by Rustic | 2 comments »

Well, I was finally able to get iinto the shop and start on getting ready for Christmas. A few weeks ago I had set up my route table to do some jointing. I am glad I did. I have used the hell out of it today. I have been busy cutting some purple heart and pine and some other stuff. In going through the cutoff pile I found a few more pieces that I can use, (like some oak). The oak was the perfect width, I will need to cut it to length. But, it has felt just so good to get in the shop and do...

my intro to wood working #8: Christmas giving

2079 days ago by romansfivefive | 4 comments »

I have been uninspired lately and not really able to formulate any thing that I felt would be worth sharing. But last night, my kids taught me something I should share. In my extended family, my children and thier cousins have a tradition of exchanging names and purchasing a 10 dollar gift for one of thier cousins. I thought this was a great reason for me to hit the shop and build something that we could give. I started searching for ideas, looking for patterns imagining how I could use so...

My Woodshop is EXPANDING!!! ...Also, new jointer and restored toolboxes.

2080 days ago by Blake | 14 comments »

My tiny woodshop is currently in two-thirds of what started out as a very small old horse stables. It is 11’x19’. But it looks like I’ve got the opportunity to knock out the wall between my section and the “room” next-door. This will add another 11’x13’ for a total of 11’x32’ !!! This will mean a lot of cleaning rat droppings, organizing, throwing away buckets of rusty hardware, etc. Then after I knock the wall down will come electrical...

Opposing Arch Table #7: Laminating the Arches

2080 days ago by Blake | 6 comments »

Finally I have the first set of arches glued and clamped in the bending form. I have only made the arches for the hall table so far. Once I finish it I will go back and do the coffee table. Since I only made one form for each shape I did it in two stages. I glued the first two arches yesterday and just got the identical (“opposing”) set in the forms tonight. I used my Thin-Strip Jig to cut the bending strips. That was very repetitive work for a while. I cut all the strips fo...

Woodworking in America 2008 #4: Day 3, or like the song says, Is It Over Already?

2080 days ago by Texasgaloot | 4 comments »

This is just like Christmas as a kid. Every day since early July you mark the calendar with hopeful anticipation (I want an Official Range Model Red Ryder BB gun with a compass in the stock and a thing that tells time!) and then you look around and realize you’re sitting in a sea of wrapping paper and you wish this could go on forever. My WIA day started with a hands-on clinic offered by Deneb Puchalski of Lie-Nielsen on, wait for it… wait for it… hand planing. Yes. Ooooo… Ahhhhh… My...

Lego Table #3: Hand Planing and Hand Sanding

2080 days ago by Eric | 6 comments »

On Saturday (the day after our baby was due, and he’s still not here!), my wonderful wife said, “Why don’t you go do some woodworking?” Since I was actually in the mood to tackle the next task on my Lego Table, I went for it! So the task of the day was to prep the table pieces for assembly. That meant planing and (some) sanding. The boards are in decent shape, being pretty much flat and square, so I only had to smooth them a little and take off the top layer to remo...

Interior & Drywall Update...

2080 days ago by FJPetruso | 3 comments »

Here’s a view of the front of the woodshop. The drywall is ALL up. But it needs another coat on the ceiling to smooth it out. . My neighbor Earl, a carpenter by trade, helped me put up a lot of the drywall. This window is where the woodworking bench will go. Right now it’s become a place for my wife & I to relax after doing an evening or day’s work on the shop or yard. Next is a view of the rear / entrance to the woodshop. Those two 5 gallon paint containers in the corner on the r...

An update on my dovetail attempt

2080 days ago by Gary | 1 comment »

I set everything up per the instructions, put some scrap wood in and after three attemps the two pieces now will fit togather with a little to much space just a few minor adjustments and I will have this figured out. Thank you to everyone for taking the time to read and post advise, you all helped give me the confidence to go ahead and give it a shot. At this point I am thrilled and headed back to the shop after supper to play some more.
