I am starting a new side table, three legged, with a round top. QUESTION: I want to make the bottom a hexagon. I also have to make a jig to route out the slots while the piece is still in mt lathe to utilize the index, anyone have any ideas??? I know I can set my saw to 30 degrees to make the cuts, but a little stuck there.

Planes #1: Heres where it all begins.

01-23-2010 05:03 PM by TD Bridges | 5 comments »

Hello, my name is TD and I’m a planeaholic. There I said it, they say that admitting you have a problem is the biggest step. Whew! Now I can get to the good stuff. Lets take a look at where it all began I was walking through a local junk store just minding my own business when my eyes were drawn to a collection of rusty metal items assembled in what looked to be the shape of a plane (I had seen planes before here on Lumberjocks but had never encountered one in the wild). I had ...

New Garage, new SAW!

02-03-2010 08:08 AM by vwmike99 | 7 comments »

Since my last (and only) entry, I recently moved into a small place with a one car garage. Its smaller than my last place, so I have to rethink everythink I wanted to do. On a good note – today I finally purchased a new table saw! I’m the proud owner of a Ridgid R4511 (Granite Top) Table Saw! Looked all over Souther California trying to find a Home Depot that had one, and I found what I think might be the last one in So. Cal. Had to unload it from my van by myself, but it wor...

Catching up with the blogs & Posts

03-14-2010 01:51 PM by Eagle1 | 5 comments »

I love the people here. And I am amazed on how many blog and posts there are. Didn’t really notice until the other day. I’ve been in the hospital the biggest part of the last 3 weeks. It’s taken me the better half of 3 days going through the stuff, and I’m still not done. But thats ok I really enjoy reading them..

Dads Shelves

04-07-2010 06:03 PM by ScoutDad | 1 comment »

I started on a shelving project for my Dad. The Shelves are Ash. The facing is Mahogany. I’m going to add doors at the bottom that slide and those are going to be Pecan. I used Tung oil for a finish. I started by joining the 3/4” Birch Ply by with dovetail joints, but I realized, that was going overboard and reverted to pocket hole screws. When I start a project, I usually say to myself, that I’m going to do this one without any nails or screws, but sometimes its just ...

Extremely Average #110: Don't Trust A Word

04-22-2010 03:53 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, What do Alfred Lord Tennyson, Bill Clinton and I have in common? Ok, not much at all. In fact, my attempt at loosely connecting the three of us, is not well executed at all. That being said, this is one of my better blog pieces. Ok, maybe it isn. I really don’t know. I do know that I very much enjoyed it. I hope you will too. :-) Brian

Not quite in the workshop... #10: Burn, baby burn... Disco inferno! What a weird labor day weekend!

06-01-2010 06:11 PM by dbhost | 13 comments »

So my labor day weekend was fun filled, with all kinds of barbecue. All told I used up 6.5 16lb bags of charcoal, and a mess of pecan smoking wood… No not all of it for cooking. If you might recall I had intended on burning out a rather large (36” ish stump) from my fence line that was from an ike downed tree, and a couple of much smaller stumps (3” and 4” respectively, again right along the fence line). Well the 36” is now history, down at least 6” belo...

Queen Anne Side Table #5: Drawer Dovetailing and Cockbeading

07-15-2010 12:20 AM by ShannonRogers | 1 comment »

I’m a little late getting this up for my LJ brethren since it has been up on my site for a week now. Sorry about that guys. Here I build the drawer and add my faux cockbead to the front. You will often find a scratched bead like this on backcountry or souther period furniture. The full cockbead took more time and therefore was more expensive. This was another option to achieve that beaded effect for the less discerning customer. Enjoy the show!
