Misc. Shop Stuff #51: Too Much Wood?

02-24-2015 09:30 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 15 comments »

Blogged on a range of topics here on LJs, but not touched on this one ever before: Shop Wood.I’ve got it, let me tell ya. Scraps of wood of all types, from any number of home renovations / tear downs / scavenger hunts over the past 30 years, have invaded my shop and have become quite the problem. And the first step to dealing with problems is admitting them, right? As I was piddling around in the shop last night, I came to realize having the material was not in itself a bad thing… It’s not...

The “trailer” is almost ready. Below you see the results. Only the rims still need to be made: Those who follow this blog have already seen that I make two trucks simultaneously. So I made two tubes for the trailer. First sanded the deck to a thickness of 2,4 mm:Sanded 3 bars:Glued the first bar to the deck After drying I placed the second bar. in order to determine the position I first put the drawbar in it. This drawbar must be able to slide. Third and last bar: P...

My lathe journeys. #20: ... was gonna turn a vase, ended up with a cup! :-)

02-24-2015 08:08 PM by JoeinGa | 11 comments »

Glued up layers of maple and cedar. Figured the red/white would make a nice contrast in the colors. ....Had in my mind to turn a vase, wide at the top and narrow at the bottom. But the more I turned, fighting my way thru some pretty nasty catches with the tool, it soon became clear that this was NOT gonna be a vase. ...Because of a few cracks in the maple that I didn’t see when gluing up the blanks, I had to take a lot from the lower-middle section, so it started looking more like a b...

poteum build clientel job.

02-24-2015 05:47 PM by hobby1 | 5 comments »

Hi guys, Here is a commisioned job a guy gave me to do a while back.It is a podeum, he wanted it made from a recycled alter rail, the alter rail was an old rail built up of oak pieces, with fancy columns and details, it was around 10 ft. long, so the first thing I had to do was figure out a way to cut it, using my circular saw and sawzawl, to keep the details intact, after a few tries, I realized the best way to cut it in sections was to use my circular saw to cut through the thickest part...

My lathe journeys. #19: ... bowl (or chalice?) more pecan & maple

02-24-2015 05:47 PM by JoeinGa | 4 comments »

More bowls, more practice. Here’s another with pecan over maple. This one is 7” tall and 6” wide at the top. These first 3 pix are with just 2 coats of Danish oil......And these 3 shots are after 3 coats of spray lacquer was put on. .....Did you notice that big flat side on the rim? That happened when my tool caught a crack and sent a big chunk flying. At first I was tempted to throw it against the wall, but thought I’d try to see if I could save it in some way. Didn&...

Tapered Reamermaking one. So in last part we got to test out the cutter principals and I can see we agree the bevel up version will be the version I go for.Before I make the final prototype, I will like to improve my reamer, so that I will have the real setup.The reamer I made back when I made the shaving horse, have two problems, one is that the wood are too soft, so it will tear and break, have started to show the first signs… It was a piece of a old parasol leg, so I had no idea...

Evolution of a Shop #41: New Outfeed table and shop cart

02-24-2015 04:13 PM by Cory | 3 comments »

Even though I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been busy. I’ve had a lot of built-in projects around the house and a few furniture pieces, too. Between those projects, I try to take some time to work on the shop. Here’s my new outfeed table, which is still a work in progress: It’s still got the top from my old table, which is undersized. I plan on making a new top when time allows. This table takes better advantage of the space I’ve got around the...

Chair One #3: Design Origins

02-24-2015 03:21 PM by siavosh | 3 comments »

Mid-Century furniture was one of the main reasons I even got into woodworking. Seeing the clean lines and rich wood colors made me more curious about furniture construction which rapidly took me down the slope to woodworking. Two years later, I now feel fool hearty enough to try to build an MCM chair. I’ve browsed the web a lot for design elements, and I stumbled onto this one a while back that had a lot of elements I liked, here's the original blog (a furniture restorer I believe): ...
