Picture Frames #3: At their final resting place

11-15-2010 02:42 AM by Camper | 3 comments »

I have finished these frames a while back but never had a chance to finish the blog. Since my better half was in a rush to get them up on the wall, I had to skip the splines I had originally planned. They seemed fairly strong with just glue, so lets hope they hold up. If not, that’s the excuse to take them down and put splines on them :) Anyhow, they are walnut, with simple miters in the corners finished with watco danish oil which I found to be easy to apply and looks very good. My ...

Atom #3: Mice with tweezers

11-26-2010 02:40 PM by BritBoxmaker | 15 comments »

Back in my computer days thats how we thought the Japanese put their kit together. They used mice with tweezers! Anyway steady hands needed here for the assembly. I had cut four 2mm square Ebony strips for the edging. So here we go. Edge the pieces. Just showing the top here. --Each side piece was edged (one edge only) using the excess from the above. They were all trimmed to size on the disc sander, 180 grit disc. Attach side one to top, other sides ready and waiting. I think they enjoy w...

My First Real Attempt at a project. A shaker end Table #5: What a day. I learned a lot.

12-10-2010 03:57 AM by therookie | 6 comments »

Well today I got the aprons cut and almost all of the drawer parts cut. I have to do the side and the bottom tomorrow then I can start designing the Dovetails. But as the title said, I learned a lot today, mainley about kick back on the table saw. I would have much rather not have learned it this way but life will go on. So I was cutting everything to width, and I have this phobia of spinning blades ever since I lost my finger tips on my jointer. But anyway, I was going through cutting everyt...

Have I been doing it wrong ?

12-24-2010 02:49 AM by canadianchips | 19 comments »

I have been reading about Table Saw fences being out of alignment. Squares not being square. Hand Plane bottoms not being perfectly flat. On a normal day I go to my shop, set the fence on my table saw, using a tape measure that has smallest increment – 1/16”. The method I use is as follows: I measure from the tip of saw tooth (the tooth that is SET towards fence), I lock my fence in place and start cutting. By the way I do NOT have a beismeyer fence or any other fence that uses ...

The Nightstands Build #6: Fixing some mistakes with Inlay - Part 1 of 2

02-16-2011 04:37 PM by Eric_S | 2 comments »

I’ve finally decided to get back to finishing the nightstands that have been going on for over a year now. They are very close to being finished. Once I finish this inlay hopefully by next week, all thats left is final sanding and then waiting for it to warm up a bit to apply my finish which in itself could take a while. Speaking of the finish, I’d like to take a second to thank Charles Neil for taking time to e-mail me a few times and help me out with finishing questions and s...

Segmented Hollow Vessel #2: The Glue-Up

02-26-2011 11:19 PM by darryl | 6 comments »

I know this is kind of short and sweet, but i needed to find something to do while I wait for glue to dry! As of this morning I have all 20 segmented rings glued. I’m now working on gluing the rings together to form the hollow vessel blank. ...and since this is such a short little status update, here’s another picture to give you an idea of where this piece is going. yes, you are seeing it right, there is going to be a big hole on one side.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #303: A Little Hiccup

04-03-2011 10:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Well, things were going a bit too smoothly. Today I went with Phil to the store and we took my car. When we returned we parked it on the other side of the driveway and I noticed a puddle of oil under the rear axel. Thank goodness everything is open Sunday in Chicagoland. We took it into Firestone where he usually takes his cars and trusts the owners and it turns out that the differential seal on the rear axel is shot. So I am waiting for it to be repaired before we leave tomorrow. I c...

Back in the shop---finally

05-12-2011 05:23 PM by wdkits1 | 9 comments »

Hi everyoneI know it’s been a while since you last heard from me—(heart attack on the 7th of March) but I’m here to report that all is going well. As most of you know, I am a self employed woodworker so not being able to do what I love to do has really been a bummer. I had a bad reaction to one of the meds which prevented me from doing even the simplest things in the shop without feeling like passing out.( not cool working with power tools) It wasn’t until I started ca...
