Hope Chest for Daughter #2 #5: Top is glued up

04-22-2014 02:03 AM by Mainiac Matt | 13 comments »

I am very happy with the quality of cut I am getting with the Fussion blade, and have no reservations about gluing up the panels right off of the TS. Smoother and straighter than my jointer produces (granted, it’s a really old jointer). My daughter came down and cut the biscuit joints and assisted with the glue up. I’m so glad she did, as we needed to move fast. We were much better organized and prepared than my first build, yet were still challenged to get it clamped up qui...

Hope / Blanket Chest #1: In The Beginning

01-12-2009 07:27 AM by KasperShop | 0 comments »

I decided to make a hope chest for my wife for our 5 year anniversary since the theme of the anniversary is wood. She told me when we first started dating that she always wanted one. It took awhile to find a design I liked, and it was one from tooldad. He made a solid cedar raised panel blanket chest I loved the design!

Wasted in Western Dakota: from waste to wanted in two moves

09-21-2007 12:13 AM by BarryW | 10 comments »

Woodworkers are changing their spots. We just don’t want to make things and toss the waste away. Nor do we want others to waste the resources it took so long to grow. Here’s a couple of examples and a few ideas. I rose from my chair and cheered something I saw in high definition the other night…a pair of New York designers, woodworkers who are creating furniture from scrap wood…called Scrapile. If you’re looking for ideas…or ways to use your scrap...

Wall Display Case #3: Starting the doors

02-16-2010 06:45 AM by johnnymo | 0 comments »

Well, I got a chance to get into the shop today and was able to make the face frame for the case. I made it just a little proud of the case so I could go back and cut it flush using the router. I also added the shelf for a space for boxed cars below the shelf as well as on the shelf. One other thing I started was the rails and stiles for the doors. I cut these to size and added a rabbit for an 1/8” thick glass that will be inserted into the doors. Will probably head int...

The old time woodshop journals #23: Why I make spoons

08-22-2012 11:56 PM by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

The shop is filled with a wonderful strong scent of fresh Cherry wood and the mission is on to evolve a cut branch into a country spoon. Very interesting this country spoon making is, so many great “spoonists” with their different styles and approaches but I suppose my greatest influence so early on is Peter Follansbee. His episode this past season with Roy Underhill in The Woodrigh’ts Shop truely captured my creativity and fascination to have a go at this kind of work. If y...

sawdust chronicles challenge #8: still one more update

10-28-2010 08:11 AM by BigTiny | 8 comments »

Greetings all. Well, finally got the camera back from the wife, only to find I hadn’t installed the software to use it on our new computer. Took me ages to find the disk. Oh well. finally back in business. There are two photos here, one of the completed cubes for the top. The other is of a couple of pieces from the same flitch of cherry veneer, one raw and one about a minute after wiping it with a sponge moistened with a 1 to 50 by volume solution of lye in distilled water. Q...
