Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table #5: Breadboards

07-24-2010 04:43 AM by DoctorDan | 1 comment »

Last week I’ve made some solid progress on the top. I have all four braces now installed and made headway on the breadboards. The breadboards need some fine tuning to get a good fit. I don’t want to make them too lose so I’m waiting for a bit of time to re-sharpen the plane for some trial and error. I’ve uploaded pics to the blog of the steps involved.

Workshop Cabinets and Helpers #2: Melamine = sharp

07-24-2010 02:36 AM by AnthonyC | 5 comments »

So in preparation for my major kitchen remodel, I have been building some prototype cabinets, frames, etc. Testing my skills and making sure my existing tools and jigs are up to the task. Well my Craftsman router table has a slight warp in it and ruins the last 6” of just about any edge profile. So I made the decision to build a quick and dirty router table with some melamine I had laying around. It was from an old shop cabinet that came apart. Well, while handling it, I gave...

Notes from the workday. #6: July 23rd, Chair leg repair

07-24-2010 01:18 AM by vicrider | 1 comment »

After sleeping on my repair plan, I ventured out to the shop and tackled today’s business. After starting I realized I should be taking some pic’s. We’ll see how well I have learned how to post. Here are a few pics of the leg after drilling out the mortise. Kinda gives you an idea of where I started. After measuring the leg six ways from Sunday I turned this stepped tenon. Here are a couple shots of the prefit. Then it was just glue up, stain, and fin...

Time to start a new project!

07-23-2010 09:29 PM by Blayne | 4 comments »

My wife has requested some bedside tables, so I’ll be heading to Tulsa or Ok City this weekend to pick up some lumber. Our bed frame is oak, so I’d like to build out of quartersawn white oak. I’m going to try to match the bed color, which is like sample5 or 6 as shown in Mission Oak Finish by Jeff Jewitt. Since most of my woodworking up until now has been on musical instruments, I’m looking forward to something a little different. It also will give me a chance to...

Techniques & Methods #4: The Infamous Dovetails Scribed Line

07-23-2010 04:34 PM by PurpLev | 23 comments »

I keep seeing these posts pop up more often than not about the scribed line for dovetails, should you leave them on? should you scrap/sand them off? Some say it tells the joint was hand made, Others rightfully so say that the piece itself tells that it was hand made…. Should you make them with a scriber? Or a pencil? A pencil line is easier to remove, but harder to line up to as you are relying on eye sight, Whereas a scribed line with a knife is a no brainer since you just rest your...

Workbench in progress

07-23-2010 03:55 PM by groland | 4 comments »

I am building a workbench for making furniture. The base is red oak, the top I bought is laminated ash. Yetserday was an exciting day! I got the base assembled, put on the vise and set the top in place and bolted it down. the big pieces of oak on the bench are going to jaws for an end vise to come. It’s been fun so far! Just don’t look too closely at my joinery—I’m just getting started! George
