Day 2

03-01-2007 06:35 AM by DaveC | 5 comments »

Alright the glue is dry so we’ll take it out of the clamps. I had a busy week so the bow has been sitting 3 days in the clamps. (sorry some of my pictures got cut off on the right) You will notice how much the wood springs back! This is taken into consideration when gluing it up. Here is a better picture of letting the glue “puddle up” around the joint. Next I cut off the excess close to the bamboo on the band saw. I will trim the final shape later by hand. I should ...

Outdoor "Coffee" Table #1: Just an idea

07-11-2007 10:38 AM by Dorje | 14 comments »

We need a low outdoor table for drinks and food, etc., Something that would tie into the design of the chairs that we already have. My first inclination is to do this table in Western Red cedar (it’s sort of the default everything-outdoor-wood around here), but I keep thinking it would nice to try something else. Again, this is another project that I intend to do this summer, but I do have to side the house, and seal and paint it if I’m lucky (before the rains come again and ...

Night Stand Reproduction #1: Back Into The Shop

08-13-2007 03:40 PM by Jchon Paradise | 4 comments »

Well – here we go again. It’s actually been quite some time since I’ve last made anything with wood. I believe it was December when I made what seemed like a thousand turned pens as Christmas gifts (I do love making the pens :o). Since then, it’s been a battle of time and energy with the birth of my second boy and the start of house-hunting for our first home-purchase. But as it has been every time I have a lull in woodworking, there comes a time when the bug i...

Another day, another nickle #2: Right Tilt Table Saw Blues

09-20-2007 02:25 PM by Thos. Angle | 12 comments »

A couple years ago I bought a brand new Jet table saw. It is really great except it is right tilt. At the time I thought it really didn’t matter, just change a few ways of working and it would be fine. I mean, there are thousands of them out there. It is dandy to not have to change the scale when I change the blade. I moved the miter gauge to the right side of the blade. I learned to jump the fence over the blade to cut 45’s. I built sleds and fixed the tenon jig for right handed ...

Router Table #4: The Top and the Toys!

10-17-2007 04:50 PM by Jon3 | 1 comment »

I pulled the top out of the vacuum press, and had a nice wonderfully tight fit. In the meantime, my toys had arrived. Paddle power switch, Woodpecker PRL, and a PC7518. I created a small jig to match the exact outside of the top of the lift, minus a half inch around. Then I rough cut the hole with my crappy ancient craftsman jigsaw, and made a note to get a nice new Bosch, and then I used double sided tape to stick the jig to the top of the table, and then used my router...

Bookcase with Sliding Doors #7: Face frame dry fit

12-09-2007 05:24 AM by mdoan | 1 comment »

I used domino loose tenon joinery to form the face frame. This is the dry fit to check that all is square with the middle and bottome rails in the proper position for the drawer opening. Looks good. I’ll add solid edge bands to the shelves. Once their square, I’ll go back and measure the two vertical face frame pieces for the drawer dividers. I’ll glue and clamp it up tomorrow when construct the doors.

01-05-2008 05:24 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Waunderings in Ones Back-Yard WoodLot ....crunching the landscape of snowflakes, i soon took a waundering walkabout, where all is silently content within their respected milieu, awaiting those birthing pangs that signal a spectacular spring….. —-were it not for these striving images of imagination,who would be found to come and rescue a soul such as i,since long ago in times of olden beholden begotten wood turnings,i walked right out of sight from those who had long tried to...

First of all I want to thank people for the kind words concernign this piece.Since there has been several questions about it I thought I’d take this time to talk about it.This piece has an interesting story about how it came to be.I had just finished a really large piece,very involved,very over the top(I’m lookin for a picture now),and wanted a break from the large project and gave myself a self imposed design project,build and design something with this small amount of wood that...
