The latest Projects...

2220 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 13 comments »

I posted my latest furniture projects to the LJ gallery before I put them in my own website, that just shows how you guys rate, but I did get them added to my site and they have many more detailed shots of the construction. You will find them under the heading “Current Events” in the navigation bar. I still do remodeling and my latest remodel project is posted under the same “Current Events.” It is not always just about woodworking, but it is always about design ...

Deli Workbench #1: Workbench repurposing

2220 days ago by wadestock | 2 comments »

A friend gave me a deli table from a closed down grocery store. Stainless steel frame, great maple butcher block top in 4 parts. The only problem with it was that it sat out in the weather for a while and the wood swelled. I’ve had it for over a year now and I’m trying to turn it into a woodworking workbench. I’ve been working on planing one section so it doesn’t hang over the frame. My biggest victory so far is my hand plane. After reading a bunch on refurbishing hand...

coming from the outside gate...and she's off! #1: Thanks for the warm welcome, here's a bit about me...

2220 days ago by Elaine | 9 comments »

Thanks for the Welcome gentleman! I’m fairly new to the home woodworking experience. In my younger days, I worked in a moulding dept in California. It’s where safety first was driven home. I did learn that whole milk will save a finger. Learned that kick back can be deadly, moulding blades spin faster than the eye can see when they leave the machine, forklifts don’t necessarily rip limbs off but can put a bone at such an angle that Picasso would be proud, and fires in the hopper are not fun w...

Grandpa's Box #1: Halfway

2221 days ago by gizmodyne | 6 comments »

BillWe lost Kristin’s Grandpa Bill on June 13th. I have more to say about him when I post the final project. For now, I will say we miss him very much. I volunteered to make an urn for his ashes. The memorial is on Saturday, so I am on a timetable. Take OneI read Gary Rogowski’s great Fine Woodworking article on mitered boxes and then SketchedUp a basic plan based on the size of box that the memorial home requested. I originally intended to make the box from a pine board...

Miter Bench and Storage #7: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

2221 days ago by sIKE | 8 comments »

Well, I have been slowly working on the this project over the last couple of weekends, but had to side track when my Air Compressor blew a gasket in the pump mechanism and I had to replace it (Turns out Good). With me having to work in the very hot loft to get this fixed I decided to go for broke and get all of my Compressor related sub projects taken care of. I had a slow leak on the unloader line, so I fixed that when I added the Automatic Drain Valve from Harbor Freight, thanks Patrick. I ...

Prototypes #2: Building Prototypes - Group 1

2221 days ago by darryl | 2 comments »

Prior to finishing my latest segmented pen, I cut several hundred segments with 22.5 degree angles to create a few more pens with eight segment layers. Having these pieces of Maple, Walnut and Jatoba, I thought it would be a nice way to get a good visual of what some different designs could be. Kind of like a rough sketch in 3-D. I didn’t want to get into gluing anything and commit myself to a design I didn’t fully like, so I carefully stacked my segments and let gravity hold everything to...

Conference Table for Local Church #2: Legs, Legs, Legs

2221 days ago by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 9 comments »

I have some photos now of the parts that have been finished to date and some that are still in the works. I have complete the three leg sets for the conference table and the four leg sets for the side tables. I have mortised the inside of the conference table legs that will receive the tenons on the stretchers. I have drilled three holes in each mortise to form draw bore tenons. The holes in the tenons are about 1/32 inch closer to the shoulder. I will taper the oak pins and this should dr...

Phew, shop reorg done.

2221 days ago by Jon3 | 2 comments »

Well, it has been a long few months, but I’ve finally managed to clear some more space out in the shop and get things re-organized. It can be quite frustrating when you’re working on the shop itself, and not on actual projects in wood, but sometimes quite refreshing. I think I’ve gotten to the point where I want to put my hands back onto some wood, so I’ll be going through some of the projects that I’ve been sitting on, and get back into creating. In the mea...

Hand Tools doings #25: A box for Callie - a left handed experience

2221 days ago by Betsy | 10 comments »

There are times when you have to put everything else aside and do something more important. I have a cat—- this cat——- There are three things this cat knows for sure. One is when I’m coming with the flea drops – she runs like mad. Second – she knows when I have chicken and runs to me fast. And third – when I have a camera. I don’t think I have a decent picture of her. Callie is 21 and is fast approaching the end of her 9th l...

This job is for the birds. . .

2221 days ago by Sparky977 | 3 comments »

So I have been helping my dad frame a house while I am in between cabinet jobs. A few days ago, we noticed a turkey hanging out near the house. She didn’t seemed to be at all afraid with the noise and activity going on. Turns out, a farmer nearby had accidentally killed a momma turkey when harvesting something or other. Well, he took the baby turkeys home and his kids fed them and took care of them, then let them back into the wild. We figure that this hen was one of them. Turkeys...
