Beads Box #7: Fill, File, Fo - The filling of Them Pores

12-31-2010 09:51 AM by PurpLev | 21 comments »

I am pretty much done with the construction of the box itself. I had left the pins extra long and needed to trim them off, which is better then leaving them extra short and um… oh shoot. After some trimming and cleaning up the joints today I drilled and installed the hinges for the doors. I used SOSS model 100 hinges, 2 on each door which is good for material 1/2” thickness. I like those hinges, easy to install, fit well, and completely hidden for a nice clean look. You’l...

My new Roubo #5: A minor set back, but happy to have it

12-31-2010 07:46 AM by JasonD | 3 comments »

After getting the 3rd 8” section glued up to complete the bench top, I went to bed, letting it sit in the clamps all night. The next morning, my son and I moved the top onto my old bench so that I could start flattening it. That’s when I realized that the glue-surface face of the last section, while flat, was angled. I was in such a rush (ie: excitement) to get it clamped up that I didn’t realize the problem when I glued it up. Part of the problem was that I didn’t fla...

Lazy Holidays....

12-31-2010 07:21 AM by Manitario | 4 comments »

I’ve had the last 10 days at home and off work, which has been a real treat after being away for work for 4 out of the 5 previous weeks. In between holiday obligations and basement renos I’ve managed to do a small amount of wood working. Spent yesterday giving the shop a good cleaning and checking the accuracy of my TS with my new Grizzly dial guage (a gift to myself) and installing extension tables for my Dewalt planer (another gift to myself). Mostly just enjoying puttering in t...

what i've been doing #3: new bench

12-31-2010 04:57 AM by Dave | 3 comments »

I found wood.. close buy… ok now what?I bought 8 board feet of ribbon sapele to build a bench for my wife. While we were shopping that day we like to go to second hand shops. We stopped at an antique shop and i started digging around and found a 6 by 1 foot board in the back of the store. It was black walnut and very figured. I asked the old guy what he wanted for it. He scratched his head and said “20 bucks”. I said “sold”. So I got home and started to try t...

Lie-Nielsen Shoulder/Rabbet Plane Kit #1: Lie-Nielsen Shoulder/Rabbet Plane Kit

12-31-2010 04:11 AM by cut3times | 4 comments »

I picked up a Lie-Nielsen ½ inch shoulder rabbet plane kit on the Bay that they used to sell in the 1980s. A fellow woodworker had passed away and his widow was selling it. It was missing the blade and a brass rod used to support the infill. I purchased a IBC replacement blade and bought a brass rod at the local hardware store. I made some rosewood dust to mix in the epoxy to create a slurry for gluing the infill in. Here are the infills glued in. Tomorrow I will start the shaping.

Leonard Street Workshop #1: The very beginning

12-31-2010 02:39 AM by tyskkvinna | 19 comments »

Hey everybody. Did you miss me? I disappeared because my life got woefully busy and I had no way of doing any woodworking. As I mentioned earlier in the year, we decided to move our business from a relatively small city to a much bigger one (Grand Rapids, MI) and spent the summer and autumn looking for a new facility. It’s a difficult progress, because we have extremely unique needs. But, we found a new home. A former YMCA, our new building (currently called the “Leonard St...

Beads Box #6: Incra Style Box Joint Jig/Sled for the Table Saw (998SE)

12-31-2010 02:15 AM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

While waiting for glue to dry I tackled the large drawer that will be faced with the mahogany/maple-stripe front. After the last project where I used dovetails for all the small drawer I wisened up (is that a word?!?) and went with box joint. My box joint jig is based on my Incra 998SE Miter gauge . The 1000SE comes with the flip stop which is very useful with 2 built in stops, and a micro adjustment which I use to sneak up to a perfect box joint fit. For added stability I also use the...

Stevenson Projects Weekender Sailboat Build #10: Keel Completed...bottom "dry fit" onto keel...

12-30-2010 11:26 PM by Napaman | 28 comments »

Okay…as promised from blog #9 ...here are some building shots… Since building the Boat Tent ...I was able to finish up the keel…I trued the rest of the top edge…more of the bottom edge and cleaned up the stem so it looks a lot better. I also went back and sanded down the excess epoxy on the boat bottom…figuring it will be easier now then when the boat is officially down on the keel…little less time on the knees down the road. However the most importa...
