Dining Table Build #4: Upper and Lower Sretchers

09-11-2014 09:57 PM by Mark | 2 comments »

I built the top stretchers using 2 5/8 X 4/4 stock I shaved down to 7/8. Then I cut a 3 ¾ tenon on each end. And a quick clean up. The lower stretcher is 7” x 7/8 with a 3 ¾ tenon on each side. I took the end assemblies apart to cut the mortises in the lower splats and the upper part of the legs.After drilling a series of holes to remove the bulk of the waist I clamped a block to the work piece to ensure my chisel cuts were straight. And the same for the upper legs. I used...

Finally 'some' of my boxes are on display

09-11-2014 05:01 PM by BritBoxmaker | 24 comments »

Not anywhere special, just at home but here we are Yes, all of us seem to submit to IKEA at some stage and this is no exception. It took me two and a half hours to put the case together. It was supposed to be a two man job and there was only me! So I’ve put ‘some’ of my favourites in there. It’s at the top of the stairs into our main floor so guests get and eyefull on arrival. Be seeing you.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1400: These Boots are Made for Stylin' !

09-11-2014 11:40 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I had an incredibly busy but rewarding day yesterday. I missed writing here, not because I had nothing to show, but because I had an early dentists appointment and had to be out of the house really early. I never realize the time that it takes to write here every day (between preparing the photos, posting and the actual writing) until I need to get a post done in a hurry. It just doesn't happen. So I thought that I would just skip a day and catch up today.  I am happy to say that I e...

Totally NEW project....REVEILED!

09-11-2014 10:07 AM by TannerTurnings | 7 comments »

This project is what I call “THE PROPOSAL EGG” It’s a simple idea that, until last night I had never heard of anyone else ever making. It’s a SPINDLE TURNING project that involves making a hollowed out “EGG”, that becomes a “lidded box” (eventually the base part will have a small round “ring cushion” once my friend has made some or me, as round ring cushions just don’t seem to be available to buy in the UK) that a ring can be...

Roubo-ish Workbench Build #1: Catching up, or "where we're at now."

09-11-2014 06:47 AM by BikerDad | 0 comments »

Yes, another workbench build blog series. Not exactly a novel topic, and I will strive to keep the series to less than novel length as well. Of course, given how long this build has been simmering, if I posted on it once a week, it would be closing on Russian novel length. So, some quick background. I’ve been working wood for about 15 years now, not that my output would give much hint of that. Still, I have graduated from using a Black & Decker Workmate (a wondrous, underrate...

Sgabello di Fossacesia #7: Shaping and Final Assembly - Almost Done.

09-11-2014 02:38 AM by Woodbridge | 9 comments »

I have been making good progress the last day or so finishing up the chair. Once I got past redoing the marquetry panel the momentum picked up. This will be the last update on the Sgabello di Fossacesia prior to posting the final project (hopefully early next week). The budget light boxes ordered from Amazon arrived yesterday and I’m looking forward to using them when I photograph the finished chair. We’ll see if it makes a difference compared to the halogen work lights t...

Small Shop Adventures #4: The quarter loft.

09-11-2014 01:42 AM by BrockF | 2 comments »

I was reading that the upper section of the garage walls right under where the roof joists meet the sidewalls is often wasted when it comes to storage. The article advised that building a wrap around shelf would amount to hundreds of square feet of storage space. Problem was all the plans I saw were very expensive and cumbersome looking without much strength…about 30 pound boxes max. I like the concept itself even though it is not practical in a smaller garage where the door tracks...

Current Project #8: Time for sanding

09-10-2014 11:40 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

Yesterday I cut and applied the molding that covers the edges of the plywood. The molding is of a different wood (pine) and I think the contrast between the main parts and the edges when I stain it will look better than everything being just one shade. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! So today I sanded the legs, the side braces and started sanding the top. The top looks great, so I’m pretty ecstatic about the whole project now. I may yet get to start st...
