Military Shadow Box Part 3

10-17-2011 02:29 AM by woody1492 | 6 comments »

This is my third attempt at a Military Shadow Box Table. This is totally of my own design. It features mitered joints for the main part of the box and the top. This is coming along nicely. I made it out of poplar 1X material. The sides are 1X6, legs are laminated to 2X2, and the bottom shelf is 2 1X12s glued together. The stain is Rustoleum’s Kona stain. This time, I am just making it to try the new design. I am not making for anyone, but I will see if I can sell it once complete.

Baby's Cradle #2: Day Two: Shaping the Carcass and Dovetails!

11-16-2011 01:40 AM by paratrooper34 | 1 comment »

Ok, so day two now and big work today. I have the basic form of the cradle down and need to final shape and size all the pieces. So here is how I got it done: To square up the sides, I fashioned a makeshift shooting board. There is no substitute for a good shooting board and I am absolutely dependent on mine. Do any of you other handtool users use a shooting board much? So I made one for the top of the bench that would accommodate the full width of the carcass pieces. I had a...

I like a challenge #2: Just enough to work with

12-31-2011 07:20 PM by wdkits1 | 2 comments »

When I restored the first Hocking Valley Cornsheller I had enough of the original pieces to get most of the measurements needed to do the build, plus I found plenty of photos on the web to use to get the details worked out. This project is a little different mainly because most of the original wooden parts of the sheller are either missing or are in such bad shape that I had to work from memory to get it done.I began the restoration by breaking down all of the metal pieces into smaller ...

Creative Woodworking #24: Coolest coffee table ever?

02-06-2012 04:11 AM by dakremer | 5 comments »

Designer and architect Reinier de Jong has just released the versatile REK coffee table. The table grows and adapts to your needs. For example, when you’re not entertaining, perhaps you’d like to close it up, but when guests come over, you might want to move the sliding parts outwards to accommodate extra drinks and plates. Or, you can keep the sliding sections and store magazines and other things underneath. Read more at Design Milk:

Thanks for the ideas Lumberjocks!

I decided to build up the height of the recycled cabinets and then make a dedicated low height assmebly table. I’m shamelessly stealing Rick Dennington’s design for his rolling assmebly table!
