Mission Style Pedestal Table #2: Getting the Materials

04-26-2013 10:32 PM by Douglas | 2 comments »

I was able to make it out to my hardwood supplier today, with cut list and measuring tape in hand. I made for the quarter sawn white oak section, and went to town. I quickly realized my cut list was overly optimistic regarding the widths I would find (does any cut list survive contact with the hardwood store?), and I had to make a lot of adjustments to for what was on hand. Somehow, I thought I’d be able to get more 10” or greater wide boards, but the majority were 8” or so....

4 Poster Cannonball Bed #9: routing for bed rail hangers

05-14-2013 09:27 AM by BryanatWoodstock | 0 comments »

I made up a jig for the colt router to accurately cut width and depth for the hangers. I use another trim router to cut relief slots for the hooksBy adding a spacer block to the jig, cut the mortise on the ends of the bed rails.Added a 1.72×2 inch strip to support the box spring. On the second glue up found out that the 83&1/4” length of the other rail I measured for the support was 1/4” too long. I thought I had trimmed the rails to length weeks ago, rails should be 82&#...

Free Thien Dust Separator for Lumberjocks in the DC Metro area

06-21-2013 03:23 PM by Chuck Anstrom | 5 comments »

I live in Northern Virginia just outside of Washington, DC. I built this Thien Dust Separator to go with a Harbor Freight Dust Collector. I recently replaced this separator with one from Oneida last month. This Thien separator worked fine but it was difficult for me to empty the dust in the shop set-up I have so I replaced it. As I mentioned, it works fine and is in good shape There is about $30 of hardware and $20 for the 30 gal trash container. Anyone wanting to give this...

Making Mouldings #3: Making dowel and half dowel on the Router/Shaper

07-11-2013 01:02 AM by robscastle | 0 comments »

It was raining again in Sunny Brisbane and I was bored with PC based woodwork so I decided to test out a few posts regarding making square wood round. So I set up in the garage doorway,.... the nice white canopy you saw I had in the previous moulding blogs was destroyed in the wind, as I put it in the rubbish I saw a note “Do not use in strong wind”, a little bigger or more obvious would have been nice!..anyway… Background:Just about all the router based blogs I read h...

build log (mini pie safe (small pastery storage)) #1: day 1 work in progress

08-14-2013 01:33 AM by hobby1 | 1 comment »

This is my build log (blog) for another project. I was taking out some old pine cabinets on a job for a guy, and he said I could keep the boards. I found very good pine shelving boards, already finished and varnished, they were very straight and flat, so I got three of them, to build some reproductive antique projects with them, to sell at an auction. I decided to try to build another miniature pie safe, it’s too small for pies, but it could be called a small pastry safe. Fi...

So maybe this isn’t a butcher block glue-up in the traditional sense, but it is a very close relative with similar construction, design, and look. See how Scott has assembled butcher-block to be used to make bar stool seats! If the video doesn’t appear, CLICK HERE to watch it now!

mobile cart

11-17-2013 09:06 PM by elduque | 0 comments »

This is a work in progress, so I couldn’t post in the completed project category. But, it will be awhile, and I am eager to unveil this. This cart has the 12” compound miter saw on one end, and the router table on the other. Inside is 2’x4’ of space for all kinds of stuff, that I haven’t quite figured out how to organize yet. I screwed yhis thing together with pocket holes, just to see how strong it would be. I cut square holes for the jawhorse miter...

Harbor Freight Lathe Critique #3: Head Stock and Tail Alignment Issues

12-05-2013 11:33 PM by luv2learn | 4 comments »

The Head Stock on this particular lathe is designed to rotate at varying degrees up to 180 degrees. One of the issues fellow Lumberjock William, A.K.A greasemonkeyredneck pointed out to me was keeping the head and tail stock in alignment. This issue is due in part, or perhaps in whole, because of the ability of the head to rotate. The next two photos illustrate how much misalignment is possible on my lathe. If the hold down lever isn’t tightened down with a lot of force ...
