I got the sideboard stained and the doors hanged, I got to install the knobs and a poly topcoat , I use a Red Oak MinWax Stain. It looks good! :) !! Sorry for the shoes under the self.
I signed up for a furniture building school at the Dogwood Institute in Georgia. One thing they did when I signed up was give me a list of tools I needed. Most were things I didn’t have because I’m a noob and I don’t really have much in the way of hand tools. So, I got some. Another problem was bringing them to the class. I’ve got a little tool bag I use, but it isn’t quite the right size. Plus, I’m finding I need more in the way of toolboxes to store...
So today is the last day of assembly. After the epoxy sets up overnight, the leg/rocker joints gets sanded and then the chair gets final sanded and finished… Starting out I took my belt sander to the top of the back legs to give them the same slope as the head rest: After that I proceeded to sand the head rest through to 500-grit along with the tops of the back legs. For the rockers, the rockers are placed in their position on the legs and we mark where the legs hit the rocker...
The electrician finished the rough electrical and the city inspection was passed. This morning he filled in the trench between the house and the workshop. I had him put in a cable TV coax in case I add a TV some day. So, I now have a 90 amp circuit to the workshop with all of the 110 and 220 volt circuits I will need. I am also putting in many T-8 lighting – as I get older I need more light. Also, the drywall ceiling was installed yesterday. They should be finished in a few days and ...
What happens when you cut with a drunken saw. #2: The Man behind the Idea behind the Man behind the Board .. My very good accomplice..David
For a long time I wanted to make a woven board.. even before LJs,. then after joining LJs I saw one and make one.Still looking for something different to impress my new found friends ,, had looked at curved designs and then I thought a curved woven boardI was just going to make it like the Drunken chess board.,. no rhyme or reason,. then along comes Patron aka David with his double curve.. so I just made the jig.. for the double curve spiral LL and …...It hits me ….that is can us...
Basic 1/4 ” plywood.. mark a line at a diagonal across the board.NB. the sharper the angle the longer the piece that can be cut.Inset two bearings on this line 19” on centre to enable the use of the 9.5” Radius template from the first jig with single curve. Fit a bolt in the righthand bearing and fit to the bearing in the base unit.. turn on bandsaw and cut the curve till you reach the line and then change pivot points to the left hand side of both the jig and the base unit ...
This is all there is to it.. you work it out!
Many of the nightstand components are complete now and I am getting ready to start gluing. I plan to glue up several intermediate components and then glue the components together. The first component includes the two front legs and the upper and lower drawer rails. These pieces are all sanded now and I plan to glue them up shortly. The next piece will include the two back legs and the back apron. Finally, I will connect the front and back with the side aprons, center drawer rails and the bott...
There are a number of ways to hold the panel in place. You could cut a rabbet on the inside edge, or you could cut a groove on the inside of the stiles and rails like a cabinet door panel. I chose to stick with the method David Marks used, panel stays. Yet once again, there is an arch to deal with. This time I thought I would just use the top rail as a bending template for a bent lamination to ensure a good fit. The plan was to resaw thin strips 2” wide and just long enough to fit ...
