Hi FolksMy day job continues to be silly busy at the moment – what a difference to the start of the month. One extreme to the other :)Good news is that I have glued up the main part of the fluted table. Was slightly stressy, as glue-ups seem to be. All went well although I do have a couple of seams that didn’t close completely with glue added that DID when dry assembled. Grrr…... Still, a little sawdust and oil soon sorted that out. And talking of oil, I’ve now put on ...

Auxillary Workbench #4: Top

06-04-2007 01:39 AM by mot | 10 comments »

I joined the bases with the stretchers by using dowels as anti rotation pins, and then running a bolt through the stretcher to pull everything up tight… I added a top that is 22" x 12" of double thickness birch plywood. You can see some blade burn on both the plywood and the hard maple bases. It was a sharp blade, but I had feed rate issues. Cutting the top. The excalibur blade guard is a real asset when cutting sheet goods for not only finger protection, but overblade dust...

Morris inspired chair #11: Invest in foam rubber futures

07-10-2007 07:32 AM by Bob Babcock | 6 comments »

Wow… foam rubber expensive. We picked up the foam last week but have been waiting for the zippers to arrive (had to order online). The seat is 5” of high density foam wraped in 1” of low density foam and then batting. The back is just 4” of low density foam wrapped in batting. They feel pretty comfortable. The seat is a little stiff but should break in quickly with me on it. Hopefully Suzanne will get the cushions done this week. We bought two materials. Niether...

Cherry Match Veneer Round #1: Designing a Piece of Furniture

09-19-2007 05:40 PM by Paul | 11 comments »

I made this cherry match veneer round piece with compass point in a veneering class a couple of years ago. I’ve had it stored away ever since. I’m having trouble visualizing the piece of furniture (purpose, design, style, etc.) that needs to be built around this piece. It’s been perculating in the back of mind and consciousness for a long time and nothing has yet materialized. I thought I would toss these pictures out there and see if any of you might have a thought ...

vacum press

10-17-2007 09:12 AM by Davesfunwoodworking | 8 comments »

I was wondering if any one has any plans on a home made vacum press. I also am wondering if a vacum pump for air conditioning would work? Can any one help me. Can any one tell me if they all work the same? I would like to build one but Iam not sure how. Any help would be great. Thanks Dave.

My journey in workbench design #2: Final Sketchup Images

12-08-2007 06:37 PM by Mike Lingenfelter | 4 comments »

I spent more time with with Sketchup and have finished the base for the bench. I drew the stretchers up with through tenons. Most plans show using bolts on the stretchers. I haven’t decided which way I’m going yet.I also spent a day visiting my local lumber suppliers. I found a good deal on some Ash. Ash is a nice hardwood and has the stiffness a bench needs.For those of you in the Seattle area, you might want to checkout Compton Lumber. They are over near Crosscut Hardwoods...

Woodworking Awards 2008 - 2x4 #1: Im gonna try dovetails

01-05-2008 03:23 AM by Zuki | 15 comments »

Well . . . DW (Dear Wife) did not like my initial idea for the 2×4 project so yesterday evening she spent a little time surfing the net looking for things she would like to have in the house. She found a XXXXXX and asked ”can you make this?”. I said ”yes . . . but there are dovetails involved . . . and I have not done dovetails before.” I started to think twice, but I said to myself . . . ”self, one of the main goals of the LJ WW Awards is to challenge on...

2 x 4 Challenge #1: Throwing My Hat in the Ring

01-23-2008 07:36 AM by mot | 27 comments »

Well, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with this. I had to take a few days to ponder what Stewart did. It just made me want to come up with something entirely different that what we’ve seen. Stewart as well as quite a few other entries since, have really raised the bar, and in the words of a woodworker, whom I greatly admire, Neil Lamens , ”Challenge yourself!” Some coaching on this process has come from a grumpy old woodturner, too. To go along with the in...

light blubs & safety

03-04-2008 06:58 PM by woodsmith | 20 comments »

I read that the feds are going to ban the sale of incandescent light blubs in order to conserve energy. I have always heard it was not safe to have only fluorescent lighting around power tools. I have two questions. 1. Is it true?2. If it is true what are we to do? I have always had both fluorescent and incandescent in my shop.
