My bargain pick up this weekend......

08-20-2012 01:24 AM by Eyedoc | 4 comments »

I picked this up on Saturday from a craigs list posting for $100. Works absolutely perfect. I researched a mobil base for jointers right here in the archives and modified a plan I found. It fits perfectly in the space I prepared for it. You have to love Craigs List!!

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #12: The Deadman

09-04-2012 04:06 AM by Mauricio | 35 comments »

Hello LJ Buddies, Here is my most recent progress. I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking. I previously milled the grove on the underside of the bench. I cut a rabet 3/4” in from the front and glued on a 3/4” tenon. This was cut by hand. First had to perfect the fit. Laid out the design with a wax pencil. Bandsawed the curve then cleaned up with a spokeshave. After drilling the holes and cleaned the Jatoba with Acetone and glued on the tenon an...

Wood Score!

10-09-2012 04:58 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Along my route this morning I spotted a chest of drawers on the curb. One drawer was out and on the top of the dresser so I could see it was solid wood without the wide dado so often found on modern furniture. So on my return trip I stopped and hefted the eight drawer dresser in my Impreza wagon. At home I knocked it apart and then cleaned up most of the wood, removing nails and staples. This is the yield of useful wood I got: From the drawer sides (above) I get 16 1/2 in. thick...

Shop Shifting #4: New Cabinets for the Recently Vacated Wall

01-02-2013 02:36 AM by sras | 13 comments »

The local BORG had a good deal on sheets of 3/4 inch plywood – that is what set off this latest round of shop upgrades. The first step in building these cabinets was build some boxes. I sized them to make the best use of the plywood and still fit. I had some hemlock that I ripped to trim the edges. Old bicycle inner tubes and spring clamps did the job. Here is a view of how I set up to flush trim the doors and shelves. The wall was REALLY not straight. It took a cou...

My 5 projects #11: pallet crafted feet and cross supports for the workbench.

01-15-2013 05:34 AM by derosa | 2 comments »

Managed to spend a little time in the shop this evening. First lesson of the day, if the dust collector is running then the tablesaw will trip the breaker if you try to saw red oak over 3” thick. But, wearing a mask and still breathing in too much dust I managed to get 2 feet and 2 long cross supports milled up square. The feet are 2.25”x3” and 28” long. Feet will be added to the bottoms of these and the ends rounded over a little, not too extreme as I don’...

Introduction and TS woes

02-10-2013 04:41 PM by dschlic1 | 0 comments »

I want to introduce my self to the LJ community. I have worked with wood as a pastime most of my life. In fact in the ‘80s I built a 23’ sailboat out of wood. However after that I only dabbled in wood working, mainly doing fix ups, repairs and small additions to the house. In December of last year, my wife came up with an idea to add some shelves to concrete columns in our back porch. This turned out to be a bigger project then either of os imagined. However the end result was ...

As The Shop Turns #1: Keeping it real

02-25-2013 05:14 AM by Natalie | 2 comments »

I have so much to do to get my shop organized, I have promised myself that I will not try to build cabinet grade, furniture grade shop cabinets, drawers, or shelves. Here’s the big HOWEVER: Okay, I bought C grade plywood, but I found some 3 1/6 thick cherry ply left over from our kitchen remodel that I can use for the sliding doors on my upper storage shelves, and since I’m doing that, I can’t resist adding lacewood edge banding to cover up the plywood edge, since I have s...

Longhorn Stampede - Intarsia Woodworking

03-25-2013 03:13 PM by Chris Mobley | 1 comment »

I have just finished a new project that I am very excited about titled Longhorn Stampede. One of my favorite artist is Roberta Wesley. I often draw inspiration from her works. She has done a painting called “Day of the Horns” that I am very fond of, and this work inspired me to do a piece that I call Longhorn Stampede. In Roberta’s painting, the thing that draws me to it the most is the fact that the longhorn cattle seem to be running right towards you. To view Roberta Wesley’s wo...
