Barnsley Reproduction Build #5: One Leg Carved, on to the Frame

11-24-2014 03:46 AM by stevo_wis | 0 comments »

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 ...

table and miter saw table #5: sunday's ventures

11-24-2014 01:23 AM by Holbs | 0 comments »

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...

Family Room Built-Ins #3: Completed Project

11-24-2014 01:10 AM by EWJSMITH | 2 comments »

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...

Well I guess when is now... AND IT HURTS!

11-24-2014 01:04 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 6 comments »

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...

Family Room Built-Ins #2: Cabinets and Books Shelf Construction

11-24-2014 12:59 AM by EWJSMITH | 0 comments »

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...

OK, The French Veneer (at last) #7: Messing With a Master

11-23-2014 11:35 PM by shipwright | 21 comments »

My last entry here was almost a month ago and I was about to leave for Arizona for the winter. Well, I’ve been here (Az.) for almost a month now and I’m just getting around to the jewellery box. When I left off I had just dovetailed the drawers and dry assembled the whole box to assure myself that going on was in fact, a good plan. There’s a little more to the drawers but I’ll deal with that another time. This entry is dedicated to Pierre Gole, one of the truly gift...

Childs Play #2: Toy Handplane Build #2... Drill Press Turning and Stuff..

11-23-2014 11:15 PM by Airframer | 6 comments »

I had hoped to be further along on this by now but progress is still progress I suppose. I am taking some vacation time next week so hopefully I can get this mostly done by the end of the first week of DEC leaving just a few simple tools left to complete the set for Christmas. Anyhoo.. we left off with the rough joints brazed into the aluminum. After sanding for a few hours I finally broke down and picked up a belt sander for the shop. I had been tossing around needing one for about a y...

Box Making #1: Solid Myrtle Inlay Box SMIB (built by after thought processes)

11-23-2014 09:17 PM by robscastle | 4 comments »

I was supposed to be cleaning up for Christmas when I found a length of of Tasmanian Myrtle offcut. I decided I should put a challenge to myself and try to make a box from it just using the one piece of solid timber. This is where all the creative after thoughts started kicking in! (ATn) I originally started off with the box using the length of Tassie Myrtle which was about 800mm long 90mm wide and 20mm thick. Preparation of the Box Frame: AT1 I thought I would match all the gr...
