Entertainment Center #3: Drawers and Doors

1933 days ago by DocK16 | 6 comments »

Progress is slow but I just have to keep telling myself how big this project is. My original plan was to finish this in time to put the new TV in it for the Super Bowl (GO STEELERS) but I doubt seriously if that is going to happen. Rushing things usually results in do overs. I spent this past weekend milling maple down to 5/8” for the 4 drawers. They also had to be edge glued since they are 8 inches deep. The plans call for the same joinery used on the case work (tongue and dado) bu...

Turning big stuff #1: Getting ready

1895 days ago by jeffthewoodwacker | 8 comments »

I was lucky enough to have access to a very large walnut tree that had blown over. The tree was over 200 years old and a little more than 6 feet across at the base. Tomorrow a friend and I plan to attack this project with a chain saw and start the process of getting ready to turn large pieces on the lathe. We will be using a lumberjack chain saw, two man cross cut saw and other tools to break the tree down into large pieces. I will use my tractor with front end loader to get the pieces on...

shop upgrades #3: Motor upgrade for the bandsaw

1875 days ago by Julian | 4 comments »

I just picked up a 1 1/2 hp 1740 rpm motor from a friend today for $30. It’s a VERY clean old Doerr brand motor made in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. After rewiring it to run in reverse, I installed it into my rigid 14” bandsaw that has a 6” riserblock, and many carter upgrades. Let me say that the saw is a totally different beast now! With the underpowered stock 3/4 HP motor, a very slow feed rate was needed to resaw tall stock. Now it breezes through 10” rock maple withou...

FWW Cricket Table 2

1858 days ago by twobyfour16 | 2 comments »

So, the cricket table has a triangular top with 3 rounded (arched?) drop leaves. When the leaves are down, you have a triangular table. Up, you have a round table. Also, it has a triangular shelf on the bottom. By the way, there are only 3 legs on this thing. Another genius move on my first attempt – why keep the angles simple? No, I had to make it hard on myself. The triangular part is made of 3/4” thick material, 3 smaller triangles glued together to make a larger tri...

Murphy Bed #6: Face Frame Assembly

1823 days ago by Gene47 | 2 comments »

Thursday I spent most of the morning researching for a spray gun then did some sanding and got what I have done so far ready to assemble. Friday I got some small things finished up getting ready to make the final push to complete the outer case for the bed. Before going out to the shop I confirmed my order for a new HVLP spray gun and it should be here by the first of the week. I then attached the frame structure to the face panels using construction adhesive and screws. Then ...

Large Jewelry Chest

1726 days ago by woodchick | 2 comments »

Change of plans jocks!!! Instead of creating the Thomas Jefferson lab top witting desk, I have decided to make something a little larger. I want to make a jewelry chest that will stand about 35in high. I still want to make the witting desk, but not for this certain competition. Today I went to a really nice lumber place called Hardwoods Inc.. I got a really nice piece of African Mahogany that is 9ft long and 14in wide. For the drawers I picked up some poplar and a higher grade ply wood. I can...
