Post and Panel Construction System #4: How to Create The Pieces

07-27-2010 09:25 AM by Pete Tevonian | 9 comments »

Everything in this set depends on two things: cutting the beads and cutting the grooves. And those two things both rely on using the right router bits. Watch the video below for the short and sweet summary. Read the text below for more details. The Right Router Bits There are two bits used for this project—a ball-end bit and a bead profile bit. In this case, both bits have a main diameter of 3/8”. Through some testing and some math, I determined that 3/8” groove...

The shop #7: Clearing the air

07-27-2010 04:59 AM by scottb | 10 comments »

My grandfather had been holding onto some hand-me-down tools and equipment until I was ready for it. (read – had the space for it, as in moved out of that basement I started serious woodworking in). And finally, after walking around it since Fathers’ Day. This weekend I finally got around to ceiling mounting this puppy! As I was building the cage for it – 2×4 and some offcuts of oak treads. it occured to me to make use of the space on the sides…. As I ha...

Workshop **Work In Progress** #1: The start of a good thing

07-27-2010 04:53 AM by brukilla | 4 comments »

With time it seems that things change. It has been a year and I have baby #2 on the way. This, in turn, has taken up the guest room and the proposed room off the garage for a workshop will now become the guest room. Things at my job are picking up and I will be working OT for the next 6 months or so until the baby is born. This means I will be able to outfit my “shop”, which will be the sharing of my 22’ x 25’ garage. I will pull out the wife’s car when needed...

Wood Find (Deal or No Deal) - Need Advice ASAP

07-27-2010 03:49 AM by Biscuit | 8 comments »

I’m fairly new to woodworking. I’ve actually spent more time acquiring tools and setting up my shop than building anything but am I am looking to take the plunge into a serious project. I love mission style furniture and am planning on starting a couple of morris chairs and ottomans. The plans I have specify that most of the wood required for the project is 3/4 quartersawn white oak. I had planned to buy 4/4 stock and plane it down to thickness but recently came accross about ...

Trestle Table for Dining Room #8: Finished and Delivered!

07-27-2010 03:12 AM by scopemonkey | 9 comments »

The table is now resting proudly in the dining area of its owner, waiting for its first spaghetti sauce splatter. I finished the base with my usual round of General Finishes Seal-A-Cell and multiple topcoats of Arm-R-Seal, then rubbed out with wax and steel wool. I connected the top to the base with oversized holes, threaded inserts and 1/4-20 machine screws/lock washers. (Screw holes) (Inserts) As you can see in the pictures, I didn’t spend as much time working the undersi...

Just a quick update in regards to my last post. When my fellow LumberJock suggested I submit this tip to a magazine, I figured why not. So I submitted it to one of my favorites…. Woodsmith. Low and behold I was contacted a few days later and if you look at this months issue (which I just got in the mail today) you will see my tip :) Thanks for the encouragement David. CtL

Ready to finish

07-27-2010 02:43 AM by jeffthewoodwacker | 5 comments »

Spent some time on the sugar maple mexican pot today. I reverse chucked the turning onto a vacuum chuck and turned the tenon off of the bottom. The piece was then sanded all the way through 320 grit and then removed from the vaccum chuck. I build my own vacuum chucks using PVC pipe and attaching closed cell foam to the end of the pipe. I turn a plug from Trex wood deck material, drill it and then use a threader to create threads to fit my lathe. The plug is glued into the heads...

I am in Fine Woodworking Magazine

07-27-2010 02:07 AM by Brian Havens | 10 comments »

Last year, on a whim, I submitted a few my pieces to Fine Woodworking Magazine for a new feature with Hank Gilpin. I just received my complimentary issue of FWW #214 (October 2010), and yep, that’s me getting my Jewelry Armoire design ripped to shreds on page 64. :-)) Yeah, sure, it is never much fun getting your work critically critiqued, but if you can swallow that medicine, then you have a fantastic opportunity to improve. In fact, one of the reasons I took on the Jewelry Armoi...
