Upholstering 2 Chairs For My Living Room #7: Preparing the seat.

01-26-2014 03:03 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 6 comments »

Man oh man – there are tons of ways that the seat of a piece of furniture can be prepared. I just don’t have time to go into all of them. If you have questions about yours, feel free to ask. I’ll give some pretty decent details about mine though. I’ll say something else before we go too far because we are a woodworking community, They don’t make em like they used to. However, this frame is pretty good for having been constructed in the last 10 years or so. ...

Hand Tool Cabinet #2: Milling the first pieces

03-18-2014 08:35 PM by BarbS | 11 comments »

Spring has sprung and I’m breaking down large pieces into small pieces for my standing had tool cabinet. The winter was not kind with temperatures, so this is really the beginning of the serious work on the thing. I’m cutting 8/4 slabs with a Skill Saw, supported from underneath on sawhorses, and then using the band saw to get them near final dimensions and letting them sit for a while to acclimate in the shop. The back table pictured has several rails and stiles on it, the top f...

Wood Thoughts #4: Dear Diary ... (A Day in the Life of a Hobby Woodworker)

04-04-2014 04:30 AM by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 0 comments »

Please Consider Checking Out My Website: Dear Diary, This morning I awoke to a beautiful Saturday morning with the birds chirping and the sun shining, and I was reinvigorated and ready to tackle a new woodworking project. I quickly dressed, had breakfast, and checked out the new woodworking videos on YouTube. I couldn’t believe my luck. All my favorite Youtubers had posted new videos!!! Though tempted, I was not to be deterred from my task – I will sta...

Rodel chair build. #7: Side and Cross Stretchers

05-16-2014 03:57 PM by Mark | 1 comment »

I ripped all my stock for the side and cross stretchers as per drawing, but I chose to go with a straight half lap joint as opposed to the dove tail simply because it’s easier.Because there is a compound angle on the back of the side stretcher and a single bevel on the front, I obviously chose to nibble the single bevel when creeping up on my final length. I started with the overall length of each stretcher and slowly snipped a bit off the front till I arrived at the final length. Onc...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1367: Travelling Down the Crackled Highway - A Learning Curve

07-24-2014 12:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I always have a great feeling as I see the Purolator man driving away after a pickup. Usually it means that I just completed a project and it is on its way to the publisher.  That's always a feeling of relief for me, as more times than not I am coming from dealing with the nerves that accompany submitting to the magazines. Yesterday was no exception.While I still have some writing to do on the ornaments that I showed yesterday, I wanted to take a day that was a bit 'unstructured&...

Tool Box #2, the lid has begun

08-13-2014 05:21 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Went through the inventory the other night. Not much left from that old bed frame. One side rail was PLYWOOD and soaked. Maybe next time. The other rail was something….different. Looked almost like a glue-lam board….LOT of plys. Well, maybe a rip here, a cross cut there, and I can build a frame? Ripped the board right down the middle. Cut one section to about 33” give or take a hair. Jointed the sawn edge. The othe section was crosscut to just over 13&...
