Scrap book cabinet #4: Drawers finally done on one side

05-22-2008 12:05 AM by jjohn | 2 comments »

Haven’t had opportunity to get back to the shop for a couple of weeks now. First time today was able to spend about 6 hrs. there. Cleaned up the shop first thing. Everything was everywhere and no place to cut wood or anything else for that matter. So, after some time cleaning up all the tools and such started back on the drawers. I said in the last entry that I was going to dovetail all the drawers. Well that didn’t happen. Had to use finished plywood on the sides. Couldn’...

Clock frame

11-16-2009 05:36 AM by epp_dog | 2 comments »

When dad gave me his shop he had some particle board that had a funky patinaed copper veneer. He thought that it would make a neat clock but never got to it. I decided to try making that clock for him. The particle board is 7/8” thick so I needed to go rather thick on the frame. Found some 2x poplar and glued up an eight sided frame. Cut it round on the bandsaw and then mounted to the lathe (I glued a 3/4” plywood back during the glue-up). When I am done, I will part the fra...

Tattoo Table #2: bloody hard work

07-14-2008 06:38 AM by Boon | 4 comments »

After getting the exact wood that i wanted i started cutting the pieces down. I choose a table from a woodworking book to copy and modify. Im using 2.5×3x13 inch african mahogany legs and will cut the ends to be flush with the 3/4 hondura mahogany. the idea is from a tile top coffee table but instead of tile, i have oak panels i will lay inside and then the tattoo shop owners will draw all over it and then ill cover it with bar top epoxy. if this post has a few errors its because its ...

Chess board with outlined squares

04-21-2014 06:35 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Howdy, Joe asked me to create a little Blog about how I created my chess board. I’m happy to do so. I’ll just remind everyone that when you are seated at the board, the corner square to your right is white. I’ll edit this post this week to add illustrations. Truth being told, the cutting board and box makers are far better at this than I. This design is just a basic cutting board without using end grain. I didn’t allow for expansion so the whole thing may just explode on me one day. Us...

Extremely Average #242: My First Commission

09-04-2010 04:49 AM by Ecocandle | 10 comments »

Hello All, Yesterday I was asked to build a tiny box. This is fortunate, because I only know how to do one thing…build tiny boxes. The request, from a reader, was to build a box similar to my first successful tiny walnut box. It is interesting to note that the entire conversation took place on Twitter. He asked me if I planned to build any more like the first one, because it was his favorite. I said I would build him one, and the deal was done. I have been having trouble slee...

Help with a good secondary wood

01-30-2011 03:56 AM by ocwoodworker | 3 comments »

Hey Lumberjock friends!! I’m building a walnut lowboy entertainment center and wanted to use a secondary wood for the drawer bottoms. I know the usual suspect would be poplar but I’m looking for something with good grain structure but cheap. (Are the two even possible?) I tried Charles Neil blotch control for Baltic birch plywood but alas it still takes a stain/dye poorly. Any success stories out there?

Pam Wants a Patio #4: Phase 4: Creating a Pergola

12-04-2013 03:02 PM by hjt | 2 comments »

Phase one ended with the 4 upright post positioned for the pergola. And while the first 3 phases came together within a months’ time; phase 4 had a full years delay. I bought the cypress boards shortly after we were done with phase 3, but somehow I never got around to getting the work done. So one year later… I was glad to see the post stayed upright and except for a little twisting were good to go. It’s tough to store 2×10x12 cypress, so for 9 months they just laid on saw horse ou...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #639: Time

03-13-2012 10:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As I sit here this morning and try to focus on a direction to move today, I feel a bit overwhelmed. I am not sure why, but it feels as if I have been not accomplishing much even though if I review the past several months, I do see that I have made progress on many things. Why is it we sometimes feel like that? Part of the reason we took a break was to get away and have a change of scenery. It had been many months of working every day without time off and I know that Keith was feeling it...

Well I have been watching surprises on Soldiers surprising there Wife, Family., Mother’s, Girlfriends and I started thinking about my welcome home.

I waited two hours at the airport for my wife to, show up, and when she did she didn’t even get out of the car, or say h,i Boo, or—————-, sorry, but that’s the first time I thought about that in a lon...

Tapered tenon cutter & mortise reamer #4: Tapered Reamer - testing and final layout for cutter

02-26-2015 11:21 PM by mafe | 6 comments »

Tapered Reamertesting and final layout for cutter The new reamer need to be tested before I cut into the final cutter.First of all for the angle I have now chosen. So I drill another hole in the test piece. And ‘ream’ it. It goes really easy and the cut is fine.So I am a happy monkey for now. Marking the center. Then 20 degrees up from there. The same on the back. Now you can see how they are offset, due to the tapered hole. So I can connect them wit...
