Small Entertainment Cabinet #3: Believe it or not, it's STILL not done.

02-13-2009 06:40 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 24 comments »

Hi Everyone; I used to think I worked pretty quickly, but now I know better. I just can’t seem to get any time in the shop lately. Seems that paperless paperwork and meetings is what I really do for a living. Takes me half an hour just to remember where I left off. Anyway, I posted some progress shots on my site. And one day, I’ll finish.(maybe) Lee

Ash Dinning Table #4: Just about done!

02-13-2009 05:05 AM by TimberMan | 5 comments »

Well I got lucky with two weekends in a row with warm weather. This gave me several opportunities to get some coats of finish on the table. I ended up bringing in the base and assembling that this past Monday. I did not glue the mortise and tenons due to the size of the table I want to have the ability to take this apart if needed. I fabricated some aluminum braces to hold the apron to the legs. I also made some wooden braces to keep them square. I wanted to give it a few days to cure ...

OK, On to Woodworking

02-13-2009 04:54 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 13 comments »

Today I posted the complete unabridged version of progress photos documenting the construction of the Cooper Closet over at my Flickr account. This album has over 300 photos. There was an extensive amount of veneer work done and I had to make a platen to facilitate construction of the doors. This platen slides inside the vacuum bag so that the doors are pressed against it instead of the bag and door assembly sitting on top of the table or platen. In the future I plan to create a narrate...

Finishing #3: Spray Guns and Fans

02-13-2009 02:58 AM by Scott Parsons | 3 comments »

Well, I was considering what to put down in digital ink next and decided on a few different things. I wanted to talk about the guns that I use first.I have six guns in use at any given time. Sometimes I have multiple projects all with unique colours. I have one good quality gun. It’s a Devilbiss with a 1 litre cup. I also have a Lemmer and the other four are low quality Husky brand from Home Depot. All my guns are gravity fed and have 1/2 liter cup except for the Devilbiss.I&#...

79- Nicole's Picture Frame

02-13-2009 02:16 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 21 comments »

About 4 days before Christmas, I started making a nice little picture frame for a custom piece of art I had made up for Nicole. A gift for a special girl requires some special wood. So I pulled out my best sheets of curly maple veneer and a couple of sheets of home-sawn afzelia wood (thanks for link Logan!) that I received from David Marks. You may find it odd that I decided to use solid maple as the substrate for the frame. I thought this would be a fun experiment, and when the rabbets ar...

A "Grounded" Discussion of Dust Collection Ductwork

02-13-2009 01:49 AM by Lenny | 19 comments »

A couple of months ago, I got a great deal on a Delta 50-760 dust collector (DC). It was used but barely, and I got it for $200. I have a relatively small shop; only 8’ X 18’. Originally I planned to place it outside a shop wall, in my garage, to save on space. However, I found I could fit it in what was a “dead” corner in the shop, sort of tucked out of the way. I decided to run ductwork and thanks to the fine work of fellow LJer, Patrick Jaromin, I had a guide on which way to go. I op...

Handplanes #1: What was your first experience with handplanes?

02-13-2009 12:31 AM by PurpLev | 9 comments »

Mine was about 7 years ago, I still wasn’t doing anything woodworking like, and we had moved to a new apartment where the bathroom door wouldn’t close since it was too tall and would hit the jamb (well- actually we mounted one of those over-the-door-hanger thingies which made things that way) so, my wife suggested we get a handplane to fit the door to the (now lower) opening. I have never worked with a handplane before , and the closest thing I’ve ever held in my hand was...

Building a new workbench #5: Half-lapping the side rails

02-12-2009 09:44 PM by Loogie | 3 comments »

Last night I got to put in a few hours on the bench project. I’ve been working on half-lapping the side rails. First marked out the dovetails then I cut them on the band saw. The upper stretcher is a full half-lapped dovetail and the bottom rails has a half-lapped dovetail only on the bottom side. The top side gets a wedge pin to complete the dovetail. After I had the dovetails cut I cut the shoulders with a hand saw then I headed over to the table saw where I used my dado head t...
