Works in progress #1: Coffee table #1

09-16-2017 08:43 PM by Stephen2017 | 0 comments »

I acquired some rough cut slabs down by Coos Bay OR. I started levelling/planing the first one and after seeing the grain and a little consultation looks like I have a beautiful slab of big leaf maple with all sorts of figure going on everywhere. I think this will make a great coffee table. So I’m planning on just smoothing it out, using turquoise inlay, and making the tables out of black walnut.

the space is defined, now on to the shop layout...

09-16-2017 08:19 PM by Mark | 1 comment »

Hi all. New here, well new to posting. Done lots of snooping. Anyways, our family recently chose to move and downsize. Our house is a modest 850sf, but has a usable basement, but no garage. Soooo as part of our plan, im building it. Basically a 18×24 ft pad, 1 car space inside, carport space outside and room for a small, but dedicated, 18×12ft shop. Given those confines, I’ve got a blank slate to work with and as I’ve been working on designing it thought i shoul...

From total noob to somewhat skilled (hopefully) #6: News...good? bad? indifferent?

09-16-2017 07:07 PM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Got a call from the Doctor yesterday who had received a “final reading” of the x-ray of my wrist by a radiologist. The conclusion – cracked the end of my ulna (smalll forearm bone) and the pisirform (one of the many bones that make up the wrist joint). So, it’s not a sprain as first diagnosed. It’s 2 breaks – okay, cracks. This affects my grip strength with that hand as well as sending shooting pains up the arm when striking anything with that hand/ho...

New shop! #12: done?

09-16-2017 07:03 PM by Steve Felsheim | 0 comments »

Well, I have been falling down on my blog (insert favorite excuse here). You may notice the shop looks a bit more “worked in”, (i.e. messy) Since my last post, I got the new bandsaw (Laguna 18” LOVE IT). Got my jointer/planer area setup and all the dust collection pipes run (that sucked, large, pun intended) Got the dust collection for the router table setup (more suckage) Got some wood storage above the miter saw station. It works, but its a serious pain g...

Garden Chair #2: Arm #2 and more re-sawing

09-16-2017 04:38 PM by Steve Felsheim | 0 comments »

Got leg/arm number #2 glued up today. Less stressful the second time :-) Jointed one edge of the first arm. Laminations look really good. Also got the narrow back / seat slat blanks re-sawed and ready for the forms. Each slat will be consist of 5 lams (at just under 1/8”) and each blank will produce two slats. Wish I had more clamps, I would glue them up now. Now to re-saw the blanks for the wider back / seat slats, cut out the arm templates, maybe rough out the...

Garden Chair #1: Forms and arms

09-16-2017 04:12 PM by Steve Felsheim | 0 comments »

After a couple other projects, finally getting around to building 8 of the Garden Chair’s from FW magazine. They will be the matching set around the fire table I built earlier. Same wood, African Mahogany SORRY, i don’t know why the pictures are rotated. They are not that way on my machine, and don’t see a way to rotate them :( I just love this chair! Getting the forms built was pretty straight forward. I couldn’t get 1/2 ply to bend around the severe ...

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #5: Just a little off the top

09-16-2017 02:06 PM by EarlS | 2 comments »

The legs on the desk are one of the unique features that set it apart from just another desk. Each leg is has an inside and an outside piece. They are spaced 2” apart with the grids providing the spacing for the top, and a 2”x3” spacer for the lower portion. After the mortises were cut into the legs and the leg sections were dry fit together in the last post, the edge details for the legs needed to be finalized. The outside piece is rounded over from the front to t...

I refused to shell out 4k for a snap-On hutch for my tool box at work so I decided to make one just how I wanted it.
