would this work?

12-25-2008 12:32 AM by AaronK | 7 comments »

Been tossing around an idea for a nearly minimalist bookcase idea. i think it might work, but i wouldnt load it with anything too heavy on all but the bottom shelf (or the very center of the middle!). I think, also, that the corner joints of the top and middle shelves would be strongest as through dovetails. the two sets of parallel beam supports in the back would be notched/dadoed to accept the shelves, which might be good partially notched as well. one missing dimension in the figure is the...

Weekend Bench #12: Stick a fork in me

01-11-2009 10:13 PM by dsb1829 | 9 comments »

Took about 3 hours this afternoon. I am going to close out this series. Yes, still have a few more items that I need to do like seal the top and drill some more dog holes. But, by in large, the bench is complete. First item of the day, hand plane the legs, vise mount, and apron flush. Minor issue, this bench is getting heavy. I managed to get it down without much strife. I went to pick the thing back up when done and failed. Took 2 more attempts to right this beast. Amazingly enoug...

Windsor Institute- Nantucket Fan Back

03-10-2009 04:14 AM by F Dudak | 4 comments »

Hello all, Just wanted to touch base with you all and let you know that I am in NH taking another class with Mike Dunbar in beautiful snowy Hampton. I arrived from PA in the early evening yesterday after 60 degree weather only to wake up to a snowy morning. The funny part is that I loaded my road bike into my car in case I would get some riding in on the beautiful coast…not. We worked on the seat and the crest today and I believe we will be finishing the seat and legging up the chai...

Weather Station: The Next Generation #3: Cutting the spacer templates

04-14-2009 05:04 AM by newTim | 0 comments »

Here’s the process I used to make the new style templates. First I use the top level template from Blog 1 with the graph paper still attached. I ripped three 3/4” scraps to the desired height and ganged them together. The stop is set on the square so I only have to rotate the piece to get a matching cut the same distance from the other edge. These two initial cuts set the width of the middle spacer that determines the separation of the wings. And here’s the stack ...

Free Wood #4: A new playground

06-08-2009 07:38 PM by Tony | 2 comments »

As usual, I was in the woods early Saturday morning for my weekly hike. I decided to try a new venue this week. I’ve lived in my current home for 12 years, but have never hiked Putnam County Park, which is only 15 minutes from my house. In fact, I didn’t even know until very recently there were hiking trails there. Located on the back side of the town of Eleanor, WV, PCP is much more remote than my usual Trace Fork stomping grounds, which are much closer to the state capitol. F...

Edge Banding Particle Board with Solid Hardwood

07-02-2009 05:37 AM by John Gray | 9 comments »

I’m building an 18” V-Drum Sander from Stockroom Supply. I was given a Particle Board piece to use as a top it’s laminated with a thin slick veneer top and bottom. I’d like to band the edges with Oak that I already cut and mitered. The question is how to attach the Oak to the Particle Board edges? I’m read plenty of horror stories about splitting the Particle Board when using screws and/or nails to attach it. ...

Fence upgrades #1: Installing my new Delta T2-30 on a Craftsman flexdrive.

07-20-2009 02:34 PM by JoshO | 2 comments »

It all started with dissatisfaction with my Craftsman Flexdrive table saw. It was difficult to make a decent cut with the saw. I understood part of the problem could have been lack of experience on how to use the tool, but it wasn’t exactly a complicate piece of equipment and degree in rocket science wasn’t necessary. After doing some research, I came across an interesting post that taught me that a table saw is nothing more than table with blade mounted underneath it. All the mag...

General Rambling... #2: Happiness is a finished project...

08-26-2009 05:13 AM by John M | 4 comments »

I’m putting this entry in my General Rambling section because I don’t want to screw up the order of the Secret Compartment Toy Box series…. I know that only those who would be in a forum like this can truly understand the feeling of assembling a project that you’ve worked hard on to find that everything has come together just as you envisioned. Tonight that happened for me and my most ambitious project yet, the secret compartment toy box. Now, I know for some of...
