OK, The French Veneer (at last) #5: Drawer Front Marquetry Assembly

10-17-2014 01:10 AM by shipwright | 32 comments »

With all the cutting and sand shading done and all the pieces properly organized, it’s time to have some fun. If you’ve done everything right up to this point, the assembly really is fun as you get to see the marquetry image materialize before your eyes. Before I get into that however, a couple of notes on things I’ve learned so far on this project. The first is the eyesight / cutting accuracy issue that I had when started using this hard veneer. I did a little resear...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #10: Shop storage solutions for dead space.

10-16-2014 11:44 PM by AngieO | 12 comments »

I’ve been making some changes to my workshop. I have this dead space behind my entry door into my shop. Usually it ends up collecting boards… the kind that fall on you when you enter the shop. LOL! So over the weekend I decided to do two things… use up some of the wood I’ve been “collecting” and to clean up the shop. This was the area that my focus went to as I walked in the shop and as I closed the door a board fell and almost hit me. Oops! :) Sometime last year I ...

Current Project #15: Chair II

10-16-2014 06:07 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Two views of the second prototype for my chair. This one is made from particle board and is completely glued together. I’m going to use it at the supper table for a few days and see if it’s uncomfortable. I already incorporated one change into this chair, the front stile will have the seat run out on top of it. The original design had the seat more or less as a shallow tray, a little hard on the legs without a cushion. Also a reminder, I have to build a cajon now, so we&#...

WOW....Cook Woods

10-16-2014 04:48 PM by OldWrangler | 5 comments »

WOW!!! Cook Woods in Oregon recently had a sale, a kinda reverse auction. Prices kept getting lower by the day. By the end of the week all the good stuff had been bought. Being the “Wood Ho” that I am I ordered several pieces of plain Myrtle. I have never worked with Myrtle so at these prices why not try some. They came in quickly and as I thought, they were pretty plain but I can use them for accent or contrast pieces. So this morning I re sawed a piece in half and loo...

Nyle L200M with the power vents for sale

10-16-2014 04:36 PM by PeterJFord | 0 comments »

So, I’ve been watching this site for a while now as I get started in my milling and furniture business. I have a unique situation – I just bought a Nyle L200M kiln with all the trimmings. But….I can’t get the kiln box built for another 90 days or so and I have an opportunity now that jumped into my lap to buy some logs that could really jumpstart my business since my sawmill is already up and running. So… I am selling the Nyle (still in the boxes – never ev...

A Strategy for Woodworking #30: Quality

10-16-2014 02:49 PM by Gary Rogowski | 4 comments »

Dream all you like. Think about what it would be like to be skilled in a craft. But skill is gained only by work. Mastery comes after years of study, the rewards through discipline & sacrifice. Sigh. Quality work does not come through an afternoon’s study. It is the work of a lifetime. And why not? What great skilled worker learned their craft in a weekend? What musician became masterful in a few hours of study? It is this very process of learning your skill, of practicing you...

On the Workbench #2: Jig for Batch Cutting Mortises

10-16-2014 06:49 AM by ontheworkbench | 0 comments »

In the process of building a crib, I ended up needed an efficient way to cut 76 perfectly aligned mortises for vertical slats. I designed the slats to be 1/2” thick and then rounded over both edges of the slat witha 1/4” round over bit to create the shape of the slat. Then using a 1/2” upsprial router bit and homemade jig I was able cut 1/2” wide mortise to fit the 1/2 thick slats and then the rounded over slat edges would fit perfectly into the rounded ends of these ...

Flat Panel Wainscoting #3: The Room Goes 'Final'

10-16-2014 04:55 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 15 comments »

I filled the gap at the top of the south wall with MDF scrap to get to the cap rail, then built up a moulding profile as best I could. Not the best work I’ve ever come up with, but I’ll shoulder the responsibility. Had to get it done and stop the analysis. The baseboard was needed as well, but I didn’t take pictures of that prep. Tonight it was installed, as last night was a night of cutting and fitting and painting. One design element my Dad noticed in the inspirati...
