Rough turning bowls

12-22-2015 10:20 AM by blue77 | 4 comments »

Over the past summer and fall I have amassed a fare quantity of green wood. Now just about all I do is rough out bowls. I am still a novice at all this but so far it has been going well.I start by measuring the lumber to see what kind of a bowl (or box) I can make. Then I draw the shape with a compass and mark the middle of the bowl. Now at this stage most people would usually go to the band saw and cut out the bowl blank. Well my 9” band saw will only cut to a depth of 3 ¾” so that’s o...

Downstairs Built-ins Extravaganza! #12: Where I'm at!

06-08-2009 07:38 AM by BethMartin | 14 comments »

Got some stuff done today, so now I need to get some pics up! This is the back of the top part of my shelving unit, before I put the back on. And this is with the back on. I painted it first, then attached it. It’s just cheapy pine tongue and groove. It’s really hard to photograph the color but I think this pic is close. I’ve left the wall side stile off until I can fit it once it’s up there. I finally relented and bought a pocket screw jig and will attach it wit...

This was cut to the shoulder length of the front slider, glued and clamped into position.The underside of the top received a 12×20mm groove between the two front mortices created by a router and parallel fence.I cut a birds mouth at the bottom and a tongue at the t...

Blanket Chest #17: Torsion Lid-Stay Hinges are On: This Project is Completed

01-05-2016 11:26 PM by HappyHowie | 4 comments »

ROCKLER LID-STAY TORSION HINGE INSTALLATION Although installing the hinges was a simple process, I wanted to be sure that it went on without any mistakes. I wanted the lid to be centered on the case with just the right overlay. Of course, the right amount of overlay with the hinges I was using was set in motion weeks ago. That is when I cut the lid panel to its final dimensions. It was that long ago that these steps today where easily processed. The steps I took to install the hinge...

I have been working on this project time permitting.

Talk about frustation, nothing went right with it and it took me a couple of weeks just to build one new shelf.Now this project has had many...
