Stinkin' Wife...

04-21-2010 03:08 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 52 comments »

I get frustrated with Rita when she drags crap home and dumps it on my workbench. I worked a long day and came home to find this new kayak on my bench. How am I suppose to get anything done now? (Note sarcasm here) Somehow, I am sure I will find it in my heart to forgive her:) I suppose it makes sense, we do live in Montana, the Yellowstone River is just behind us at the base of the rimrocks, and Rita already has a kayak. Peace, Love, Woodworking, & Kayaking

Antique Wooden Planes and the Furniture Maker #2: Tuning Up An Old Wooden Smoothing Plane

04-21-2010 12:17 PM by lethentymill | 3 comments »

Allan Fyfe of Lethenty Mill Furniture demonstrates how to use a smoothing plane that he has just restored. Another movie will follow on the restoration process. The restored plane came from a box of old tools that were in bad condition and it turned out to be a product of the Scioto Works of New York. He knows very little about this company, apart from already having two other smoothing planes and would be delighted to hear from anyone who has more information.

Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench #11: The Shelf

04-21-2010 11:02 AM by DoctorDan | 3 comments »

DesignThe shelf was originally flush with the top of the stretchers. However, because the stretchers needed to be so high, and the screw so low, that limited my storage. To counter this, I’ve lowered the shelf within the stretchers. This also made away with support pieces. ConstructionLacking the new lei-nielson tongue and groove plane (I have a birthday soon… anyone… anyone…) I used a circ saw and a small router to cut the tongue and groove joins. It was a little r...

Planned Conference Table

04-21-2010 06:18 AM by Brandon Hintz | 1 comment »

Here is a project I am designing and hopefully will soon be building. It is a conference table with some extra bells and whistles. The overall dimensions will be 150” x 54” x 30” There will be 5 power centers which will be raised into place with remote control linear actuators. The large power center will be 2 tier and have a projector mounter on a lazy susan so that the projector can be adjusted. The tops of all the power centers will be beveled so as to allow the power...

Butcher Block Kitchen Table #2: Progress on the Legs

04-21-2010 05:43 AM by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

I got the legs all milled up, 1 3/4” square, and cut the bevels on the bottom. I screwed a fence to my mitre gauge, which had a block of wood glued to it which allowed me to keep the bevels somewhat consistent. I say somewhat, because I think my mitre gauge didn’t lock down when tightened, as there is a very slight variation in the bevels so they don’t meet up in the back on all the legs. Obviously nothing to care about – the only way you’d be able to see the ...

Baby Tender #2: Skeg done

04-21-2010 05:07 AM by mpmitche | 0 comments »

I cut out the skeg and rockers about a week ago with some hand saws. I now have the skeg finished up and will be adding it to the bottom of the tender soon. The rockers are getting close but it is slow going finishing the curves off with rasps and files.

Extremely Average #109: A new project begins

04-21-2010 04:43 AM by Ecocandle | 5 comments »

Hello LJ Buddies, I am starting a new project today. Unlike the other projects I am not going to wing this one. I believe I have assembled all the materials I need, and I will be attempting to create a 3 in 1 jig, that will allow me to plane a surface of up to 34 inches, cut thinish laminate strips with my circular saw, and drill holes at uniform lengths that are absolutely perpendicular to the board. So I took a picture of the starting stuff, and drove around and took more pictures o...

Quarter Sawn White Oak

04-21-2010 03:36 AM by sandhill | 8 comments »

Well I am starting a new project and would like some input. After seeing to price of QSWO I was shocked to find the cost of the bed and rails made from Quarter Sawn White Oak came to right around a thousand dollars 8.50 A board foot. I can see using it on the legs and back rails that show but is that what everyone uses? Is 8.50 over priced? I thought it would be closer to 3.90 to 4.25 per BFT.
