A Flag Display Box #2: The Jointing Begins

02-04-2010 11:04 PM by littlecope | 10 comments »

I managed to get in a little over two hours yesterday, beginning by finishing the sanding of the three pieces of Red Oak that will comprise this project .If you remember from Part #1, I had started with two lengths and cut the longer one in half to obtain the shorter legs of this Right Angle. Though I can’t have a complete wrap-around grain pattern, I can do it with at least these two lengths. This time, I’m going to start with the conventional 90° joint connection first. I did th...

Boxes! Boxes! Boxes!

02-26-2010 04:44 AM by mkrok | 1 comment »

So when I decided that I will take the plundge back into woodworking I had to decide on what kinds of projects I would make. As I have said before I’m not very good. So what can I make that will help me with my skills? I went back to the basics, boxes. In my opinion, boxes are the basic building block for just about everything. Let’s face it, if you cant cut straight lines or make square joints then your projects will look like mine. Boxes will be fun too; everyone needs b...

Hello Everybody...Just joined

03-15-2010 04:04 PM by JimArnoldChess | 13 comments »

Hello Everybody, Just joined here and wanted to introduce myself. Just moved to the NC area recently. Spent years on boats in many places around the US, and still enjoy sailing and scuba diving when I get the opportunity. At one point, did lots of interior design and installation of woodwork on boats, especially OLD ones. I often carved mermaids and pirates and skulls on boat tillers and wheels which kind of led me into carving full time. For the last 18 years I have focused on crea...

Extremely Average #85: It is harder than it looks

03-28-2010 04:50 AM by Ecocandle | 6 comments »

Hello All, Today I woke up with the plan that I would flatten my whetstone on a precision cinder block. My guess was that it would take around 15 minutes. It did NOT take 15 minutes. Compared to the lenght of time that the universe has existed, it wasn’t so bad, but when one measures the time against one single saturday, it was brutal. Having a flat stone is a great thing though. After my chisel was sharpened I did some more dovetail practicing and took one really good picture...

Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench #12: Stretchers: Part 1

04-24-2010 11:39 AM by DoctorDan | 3 comments »

DesignThe four legs are connected by 7 stretchers; 2 on the short sides, 2 at the front, 1 at the back. ProgressI had been waiting for a new Chris Vesper Square before cutting the joinery. However, this week I received news that the square I expected for Christmas, will be arriving closer to July. So I decided to just use my old trusty $3 square. The results were actually quite good. I made the tenons using a circ saw and guide. Not a romantic hand tool technique but it works. ...

Bed #7: Working with what you've got.

05-20-2010 01:03 AM by tyskkvinna | 13 comments »

I went to the Big Box yesterday for a couple of 2x’s. I did not like the 2×2’s, they were super warped. So I got 2×4’s. Problem is, a 2×4 is too tall for the amount of space I need. I needed them closer to 2” tall. Couldn’t rip it on the tablesaw (it’s packed), couldn’t figure out a way to safely do it on the circular saw, didn’t have the patience to consider doing it with a handsaw, can’t stick things that ratio in the plan...

In The Beginning #1: 40 hours until it begins

06-03-2010 10:08 AM by Crushgroovin | 5 comments »

It was all started 8 weeks ago as a way of spending more time with my sons & a desire to build a common hobby before they reach the age of rebellion. So we 3 set off on this foray into woodworking with a 20 year old duct taped circular saw, a 20+ year old jigsaw, a new (under powered) table router, & about 100 projects & about a million ideas of what we would like to do first. The first project of course was a work table/bench. That was followed by two cutting boards. These thr...
