Finding old tools #1: Searching Mississippi's Antique shops found a yankee drill

01-01-2012 03:48 AM by Dave | 8 comments »

My wife and I love going across our state and looking for antiques. I have gotten so caught up in it I have started a face book page called Mississippi Antique Enthusiast. I have filled most of the basic and easy to find tools on my list. Now I am down to the rare or neat stuff. Today at Beckys Antiques in Louisville MS I found a Yankee #41 buy North Brothers with a few bits in the handle. It was tucked off in the corner. The store had taken over a few old stores and knocked ...

What do we do with this WOOD?! #6: Photos of the Rounds & an S curve walnut flitch

01-12-2012 05:50 PM by Eric M. Saperstein | 4 comments »

These are the rounds (now in the kiln) that will be used for gaming tables mentioned in the last entry … 9 of them should give us some good options. I’m thinking a nice simple S curve walnut flitch bench out of this one. Pondering legs, maybe osage since we now have that or mulberry with some interesting looking rough cross beams. Maybe 8 legs kinda cater-type-piller look out of the flitches along the curve of the piece. Ideas keep coming along – TIME and m...

Maloof rocking chair class question

01-25-2012 05:00 AM by bkap | 6 comments »

I am considering offering a new special for those who would like to take my Maloof-style rocking chair class. After talking to a number of woodworkers, I have come up with a “class bundle” offer for a week of instruction on rocking chair science. If at least six (6) woodworkers sign up for any week-long (5 days) “class bundle,” then, by a drawing, one of those woodworkers will receive that “class bundle” for FREE. Included in the five-day (Monday t...

Greene and Greene inspired raised dog tray #4: Mortises and dry fit of base

02-19-2012 12:48 AM by Eric_S | 6 comments »

Today I was able to route and square all the mortises for the haunched tenons.To start, I laid out the legs with the best faces facing outward and numbered them so I know which way each leg should face and where the mortises would go.I then measured in so that the apron was 3/8” from each outside edge of the leg and scored them.I then lightly went over each scratch mark with a pencil to make the lines easier to see.The mortises are going to be 3/8” wide by 3 1/2” by 1”...

Tools #2: $65 Radial Arm Saw!!!!!

03-12-2012 09:48 PM by DevilDogNurse | 8 comments »

God Bless Craigs List!!! I just picked up a lightly used radial arm saw for $65!!!!I need to make a new table and rip fence for it, but for $65, I don’t think I can beat the price! I downloaded the manual. I had no idea these saw’s could do so much! Cross Cut, Rip Cut, Rout!!!! This thing is a Jack of all trades!!!! I will probably only use it for rip cutting, but hey, you never know!

Kitchen Built-in Booth

04-19-2012 10:28 PM by Gabe C. | 5 comments »

So at first I was only going to post this as a completed project, but I felt that in order to keep from saturating that post with too many photos, I would also post this as a blog. Plus it might inspire me to add a bit of dialogue about the process. This is the completed project. This is the space that I started with. So I have a pretty small house with a fairly small kitchen, in which we have my girlfriend’s table and four chairs. The problem we were running into is that when ...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #12: Painting the Carcase

05-06-2012 06:03 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 17 comments »

Yes, painting it, so it matches the Inspiration piece. Filler of holes, sanding, oil-based primer then oil-based paint. Quick set of phots, with another to come first thing tomorrow AM, when the paInt’s dry. Here’s the brown shell with the Inspiration piece in the background. Bottom line is, I want these two tool cabInets to appear to be from the same ‘set’ when this build is done…
