So much for making a box from a single piece of wood.Here I am and already I have used all of the original Myrtle, added a veneer inlay and now working on the lid. Rummaging through my box making pieces, I obtained from Degoose I find a suitable piece to make a lid for the box. I am not sure what the timber is but it looked OK and suitable, so onto the table saw it went. The timber was trimmed removing the split ends and then squared up using the saw. Cutting the Rebate: ...
This workbench is more primitive but carries the same angle brace leg vise mentioned in my previous blog post. Found in Farm Shop Work: Practical Manual Training, by George M. Brace and D. D. Mayne, 1915. http://thewoodknack.blogspot.com/2014/11/another-farm-workbench-with-angle-brace.html
Finally got some time to get back on the bench. After all, its only been 5 months since I last worked on it. Decided to tackle the end cap on the vise side. Condor tails for joinery, naturally :-) Popular Woodworking recently sent out an email with article from Jameel Abraham (Mr. Benchcrafted) on the process, pretty easy to follow. Link: http://www.popularwoodworking.com/techniques/make-condor-tails First, though, I laid out the tails full size and played around with sizes to get so...
I finished carving one leg with all but the tenon at the top. The carving went well and turned out great. I will carve the rest in my spare time and will use shop time to build the frame which supports the table top. The view here if from the bottom looking up under the top. Each of the pieces are 3 1/8 wide and 2 1/2 thick. The joinery is draw bored mortise and tenons. The tenons are each 2 inches wide and 3/4 thick and present a challenge as most of the joinery is at 45 ...
I make a simple tray out of walnut for my wife to decorate and fill with items to serve as our centerpiece for the Thanksgiving day table. http://youtu.be/HOhNoZsMtwQ
Finished off the downdraft table, as pictured from underneath with silicone, baffle, and glue up. You can see the 6×5x4 wye with the 4” capped off. That will be for future addition of overhead saw dust collection. Thru the coming week, still have to seal the ducting seams with grey goop stuff, flush the table saw to the miter saw table, close up air leaks from the saw table, afix something on the wall to hold up the 4’ left miter saw outfeed table, and find a way to have t...
Well, the project is now completed …..... finally….... This took a lot longer than anticipated, especially when you can only get an hour here and an hour there to work on it. But in the end, I love the way it turned out. Originally, I thought of floating shelves on either side of the stone fireplace but much happier that I went this route. The base cabinets offer so much more storage and the wife is filling them up already! She`s happy so I`m happy – at least that`s w...
You know the expression “it is not a matter of if, but when…Well it happened to me today. I was in the process of making an overhead dust collecting guard for my table saw, I have always hated my stock guard. I was cutting some material and went to remove the waste when a little voice in my head said “This is probably not a good…” then BANG it happened. My arm was thrown back and my hand felt like it was it by a locomotive. Kickback. Son of a….. Well...
I decided to take the approach of constructing the built-ins as a set of base cabinets with bookshelves on top. For this project, there’s a real mish-mash of materials – mostly stuff I had on hand from previous projects or readily available and inexpensive at the big box stores so there’s birch ply, pine and mdf. I didn’t really care since it was all being painted anyways so material choice didn’t matter to me. Glad I made the bookshelves from pine and not MDF...
