American Hanging Cupboard #2: Stock Preparation - Rough Dimensioning

10-29-2009 07:18 PM by Mark D. | 3 comments »

So unfortunately I got carried away actually working rather than documenting the process, but I did snap this photo before I quit for the night. So far I’ve gotten all the face frame pieces cut down to final size and have marked out the tenons on the rails. I also cut a test mortise in some scrap that went through the same milling process so I can test the fit of the tenons as I cut them. The dado stack is in the saw ready to rock. I will begin cutting the joinery tonight(I ho...

Repairing Moms Chair #1: New arms for an Old Chair

02-12-2010 11:30 PM by RickRogers7 | 1 comment »

Repairing Mom (in laws’s) chair. The old arms were a little weather beaten so I decided to make some new ones.The chair has sentimental value, it was her son who passed away. She had asked me to tighten up the bolts and put on a fresh coat of paint. I’ve taken it a little farther than that and complete disassembled the chair so I can do some repair work. These are the old ones, held together with a loose dowel and pocket screw. The new ones will be mortise and tenon St...

Wood Art #7: The Wych Elm Project

03-03-2010 05:33 PM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

A couple nights back while on another of my serendipitous online adventures through the world of trees and wood, I happened upon a blog with a post entitled The Edinburgh Cabinet,RBGE wych elm project. It had some nice pictures of a cabinetmaker and some drawer fronts he’d carved with a scene of Edinburgh, Scotland (click for larger views): I love how the wood grain creates a kind of blanket over the image, like the radial glow of a sunrise or sunset coloring the sky, far mor...

04-05-2010 02:10 PM by degoose | 15 comments »

The other day I got a call from a good mate of mine… George McNab… asking if I could use some small offcuts of Hairy Oak.. Some of you may have seen George at various Wood Shows… he is a supplier of Western Queensland Timbers… for boxes and pens. It seems he had been cutting up some logs and the bits that were of no use to him, he was going to chip…I was over like a shot.. in the Ute.. There actually was a huge pile and with the Good Lazy Wife in towR...

Extremely Average #134: If you hate William Faulkner...

05-16-2010 04:40 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello LJs, Tonight I wrote a ‘stream of consciousness’ blog pieces. If you hated reading William Faulkner in school, you will find tonight’s post to be painful. It does have an exciting ending. So I really can’t say if I am recommending you bother checking it out or not. I guess I leave it up to you to determine your own fate and how you chose to spend the next 2 minutes and 45 seconds.

A nice relaxing day in the shop

05-30-2010 08:48 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 1 comment »

After being so caught up in craft fairs lately I hadnt taken any time to just enjoy being in the shop. And even though I was enjoying the processes of box making there was still a subtle pressure looming there due to preparing pieces for sale. It felt good today to say in the shop and making something for my own home and enjoy a few new tools and test there limits. I found myself working on an end table for my bedroom. All the furniture and boxes I keep are usualy the screwed up rejects so it...

Chairmaking at the Appalachian Center for Craft #1: Day 1

07-12-2010 05:18 AM by doorslammer | 1 comment »

This week I’m on vacation and taking a chair making class at the Appalachian Center for Craft which is a satellite campus of Tennessee Tech University where I got my undergraduate degree in engineering and am currently working on a masters of engineering. Every summer, the craft center offers several, week long workshops in all of their offered mediums. So this year I decided to commit to attending a class and not letting life get in the way. The class is based on a modern dining ch...

My 21st Century Bench Revisited #4: My 21st Century Bench Revisited #4

07-25-2010 06:29 AM by fineamerican | 1 comment »

4th Down and time to puntI decided that there was no reason to continue on with the bench top I was working on in “The Glue Dance” post. I didn’t like the feel of that bench, and not to mention the glue up didn’t go as planned. This time, Ive selected some Mahogany that sat outside for a unknown amount of time, and its now “Sun Dried Mahogany” if you will. Today I moved planks around and ended up with a very cool looking book match on one end that Ive deter...
