My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1776: #1776 Meow, Meow, Boo (Part 1)

09-14-2016 12:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Some of you may have noticed that I have been a bit 'unsettled' lately. While I have been keeping my self busy, I have felt as if I haven't been making much headway in several areas. Maybe the term 'overwhelmed' is a bit more fitting. I have never been one to make excuses for myself. I learned at an early age that it is better to own up to the things you did or didn't do and then move on from there. To me, the consequences of thinking about things were far worse t...

Retooling Part 2

09-14-2016 11:48 AM by thegringoww | 0 comments »

Why in the world would I call this part 2 of a post that should have been only one part? Well, if you read my original post, you would had read that the Ms and I decided not to move to Queretaro, Mexico. This is where this post pick up from. It turns out that the Ms. and I are in fact moving to Queretaro, Mexico. While we were there last time, we stayed at an Airbnb, and we became really good friends with the owner. I was chatting with her one day, and she mentioned that she would like fo...

Trestle Table #9: Mortise JIGs

09-14-2016 03:55 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

This will be my first time to use guide bushings to plunge route mortises. My mortises will be 3/8” wide. The guide bushing I will be using is a 3/4 inch diameter. There will be two mortises made in the trestle feet and one motise into the underside of the cap.

Shaker Candlestands #2: Making the prototype

09-14-2016 02:30 AM by Phil | 0 comments »

The next step in make my Shaker candlestands was to figure out how to hold the spindles/posts to cut the dovetail mortises for the legs. After turning it over in my head for a couple of weeks, watching some videos on youTube (include 3 different New Yankee Workshop episodes where Norm makes pedestal tables), and trying a few options, I finally decided to make a fixture to hold & index the post at 120° and use a router to cut the mortises [1]. Here’s the fixture: The post...

Walnut Night stand #6: Tuesday was a bit better

09-13-2016 06:55 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Let’s see, cleaned the bench off a bit Except for a couple tools I thought I might need.. And brought this thing out of hiding.. Yep…that pine scrap did wind up glued in place. Wide chisel to pop it off. Got to looking at the legs….decided in the interests of it NOT falling over, a fourth legs was needed. First two legs were NOT 120* apart… Did NOT feel like digging another dovetail joint into the base with three already glued up. Used one leg as a pat...

Building my Workbench #3: I'm getting to the beginning...

09-13-2016 04:39 PM by HokieKen | 4 comments »

I was actually at the beginning last weekend. I was all excited to get out to the shop and start cutting these beasts down to rough lengths and go to work with the scrub plane. And then… Well, I’ve been kinda amassing a bunch of crap over the last few years. I have wet grinders, antique table saws, old hand saws, bench vises, scroll saws, ‘bout 1/2 dozen electric motors and a ton of miscellaneous crap that I’ve just kinda been piling up in whatever empty floor sp...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1775: "Finished"

09-13-2016 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It is always a thrill to finish up a project. Whether it is a project that I designed, or one that I did that was created by someone else, I always feel a wonderful sense of satisfaction when I finally call it "done". As most of you who read know, I am usually working on several things at once. I design my own projects, but at the same time I try to squeeze in some projects that were created by other artists that I admire. Like most of you, I am addicted to creating and when I ...

Again with the Dutch tool chest... #1: Most of the way there

09-13-2016 07:48 AM by Fraxinus | 0 comments »

Here’s my contribution to the vast body of literature on the subject of Dutch tool chests. I started last month and I’m most of the way through the build. I started woodworking this January and this is my biggest project using hand tools only. I did “cheat” a bit and used a heat gun to reduce the cup of the boards, plus some of the thin stock is scrap from another project that I resawed on my table saw a few months ago. I’m using Ponderosa pine 1×10s and...

Working with recycled timber #65: Organic Bar Stool Sanding the fitted Cross Braces

09-13-2016 06:44 AM by robscastle | 9 comments »

Progress I made up to today I fitted all the perimeter braces to the stool, the three diagonal ones went on the two sides and back and the Foot rest went on the front. The three diagonal ones I bandsawed to shape first, as per the footrest shown previously. I could only do rough bandsawing but at least it removed most of the bulk material from the curves prior to glue up. done Mon night. The glue up:- This proved to be quite tricky as clamping was almost impossible, every time...
