Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #19: Getting the Face on the Base

01-14-2013 01:23 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 29 comments »

There’s been more progress in the last several days than in the several months previous, so here goes another installment… When we spoke last, the Venerable Wall Hung Hung Tool Cabinet was where it has been for nearly ten months: on it’s back, on top of my assembly bench. The tambour has been fitted, and the sliding plane till door is in working order, albeit bounded by f-clamps and a certain, left-most stile. Oh, the stile. Here it is, and without any detail (sorr...

Mesquite & Pecan Dining Table #1: Getting started

02-08-2013 03:16 PM by Dabilene | 3 comments »

I am putting together a hunting camp and the bunkhouse needs a dining table. The space will fit a 48” square table nicely (I’m a little apprehensive about trying a round table, so square it is). This is my first project that I consider “furniture”. I’ve been limited to shop fixtures, cutting boards, pens, etc. I live in Abilene, Texas, and we have a great mesquite supplier – Lankford Mesquite. I ended up with beautiful 4/4 boards for $12/board foot. ...

Stanley #4 Type 11 Plane Rehab

02-23-2013 02:36 PM by BigDawg | 8 comments »

I have been buying up old Stanley, Millers Falls, and other old hand planes for a few months. A portion of my shop has become a bit overwhelmed with the task of collecting, identifying and rehabbing them. I bought another 4-5 items this morning, so it’s a task that will probably take me all winter to accomplish, and that’s if I stop buying, which I have no intention of doing. Well, here is the first plane to undergo my revised process… This Stanley #4 smoot...

New sawmill/slabbing mill

03-10-2013 02:53 AM by WoodLe | 8 comments »

I finally finished up my new slabbing mill today that I have been working on the last 3 months or so. It was very rewarding to finally fire it up and start cutting. All the extra hours of research, planning, locating small parts, and getting parts machined that I couldn’t find anywhere else, have finally paid off. This mill so far has exceeded my expectations and is fun to use. It was so much fun and faster than my old mill that I almost forgot to take pictures! This mill can cut u...

As The Lathe Turns #23: People Spoke, So I Listened

03-24-2013 01:35 AM by William | 27 comments »

For several days now, I have been wanting to glue up some more bowl blanks. It has been cool though. When I say cool, keep in mind I live in Mississippi. It has ranged from the forties at night up to around the mid sixties during the day. I know that during the day it is warm enough to glue, but the temperatures fall below what the glue bottle instructions recommend before it is set. I’ve had a past safety issue with trying to glue material in low temperatures before. So, I won’t ...

Burnt-out Motor

05-27-2013 06:12 AM by chidwickschool | 3 comments »

I’ve always known that I really should be blogging about my woodworking life, but sometimes the thought of starting yet another project (demanding a lot of my time) in the face of so many other things that have immediate priority, has seemed foolish. Indeed, at this very moment I could choose from a list of 20-30 different things that I could work on that would be a smart use of my time. From finishing my home addition (painting, flooring, tile, trim, cabinets etc) to over-due cu...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1061: Slowly but Surely

06-17-2013 10:04 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Well folks – after a weekend of pretty much continual painting, I am still only about one third done with the project that I am designing. I don’t remember the exact day I began working on it, but it was sometime in the middle of last week. There were some other work related things that came through in the mean time (a nice wholesale order and doing some printing for my friend Bernie) and that of course took me away from things for a bit, but other than that, I have been trying ...

Step two of the cloudy night in marblewood

07-24-2013 11:15 PM by snoman1973 | 0 comments »

So far I’ve gotten to this point in the whole mess. LOL The pattern is drawn and the rough cutting has been done, as well as the contouring with a dremel to give the clouds more shape. Still need to contour the crescent moon. The sanding and shaping of the piece will take the most time. If there is a better way than what I’m doing PLEASE tell me. :)
