My Workbench #3: Getting Close to Being Done

1822 days ago by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

If I never have to cut MDF again, it will be too soon… Unfortunately I’m going to have to trim the edges of the MDF with my router, since I decided to be sloppy and clean it up that way rather than try to make perfect cuts with my circular saw (not likely). At least all the sheets are cut, so I’ll probably take these outside when I’m trimming so I don’t spend another hour vacuuming my garage. Overall, things are getting close to wrapping up, for the primary ...

Skateboard Bed #2: The Axle, Wheels, and Trucks

1822 days ago by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I did some proportion work and decided I need 6” wheels. The wheels I found have barring that are made for a ½” axle. For the axle, I went to steel supplier and had them cut some 43” pieces for me. For the trucks I glued up some MDF to come up with a 3” thick block. I sanded down the corners at an angle just to give it some interesting lines and not just a plain cube. I have the axle and the trucks. I needed to find a why to attach them together. My original thought was to use a...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #12: 3-D carving.

1822 days ago by degoose | 16 comments »

This weekend just gone we did a little bit of 3-D carving.I think we were a little adventurous and we were only moderately successful. Did not really have the right cutters but over all I think It came out fair to muddling. I made a blank out of plywood glued up.. 400 mm by 400 mm by 70 odd mm thick, and used a sun face for the template.Spent a lot of the time scarfing out the waste .. would have been better gluing up a pyramid…. you will figure this out from the photos. [ lucky we had ...

An Office for the House -- Complete With Woodworking Projects #4: Desk Update - Weekend 1

1823 days ago by RobH | 2 comments »

Hey all, I was hoping to have pictures to post, but I was simply wiped out afer working in the heat and humidity all weekend. I am worn out, but I made a lot of progress on the desk. The feet are done and look awesome. The posts are done, and the top supports are done, for the most part. The only thing I have left to do is notch the center support to fit into the stretcher. The top panel is glued up and the breadboard ends are made and ready to apply to the top. This week looks to...

1823 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 99 comments »

Hi Everyone; It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. The table project has been side tracked for a while, due to some health issues but I’m back at it now. The three pedestal bases are finished. I’ve also started posting the construction details on one of my wood working websites: http://www.myhomewoodshop.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=72:17-foot-dining-room-table-part-1&catid=82:dining-room-tables&Itemid=63 ...

A Solid Foundation to Build a Future - A New Workbench #3: The Top

1823 days ago by bfd | 13 comments »

This has been an off and on project for me for several months. I have put it on the back burner to take a few commisions and finally got around to working on the top. To make things easier on me from a time stand point I bought a premade butcher block top and added the aprons saving me the time of milling all that lumber. The first thing that I tackle is routing the tongue on each end that will support each end cap. I route a 3/4” groove on each end cap. Next I layout the dove...

Sewing Center #2: Stained Poplar using MinWax Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner (yellow can)

1823 days ago by SouthpawCA | 11 comments »

I didn’t really listen and I should be spanked!!! I am now going to stain the sewing center. I knew I had to actually condition the wood because it is poplar. But instead of doing the 50/50 mix of shellac and denatured alcohol or as I read on a can of Zinsser Bulls Eye SealCoat (which is shellac) a 3 parts denatured alcohol to 2 parts SealCoat mix, I thought I save myself some time and just condition the poplar with MinWax Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner (the yellow can – they also ...
