Kitchen Lazy Susan cabinets #1: upper corner kitchen cabinet dry fit with some work to be done

02-12-2010 08:47 PM by HarleySoftailDeuce | 10 comments »

I’ve been slow in building my kitchen cabinets, but I’ve made some progress. This blog is a few photos of the upper corner cabinet. I’ve bought and read many wood working books; each seemingly leaving me with questions or concerns, so I just kind of did this on my own. So far…so good. I’m an advocate of 3/4” plywood for all cabinets. I know it’s overbuilt, but they will last, and not fail in any way. No special strips needed to mount; just a level sil...

DICE - using up scraps

02-12-2010 04:24 PM by Maclegno | 12 comments »

Yet another way to use up scraps; this pair is made from Beech with Mahogany inlays. Those who have had the benefit of a misspent youth will note that the smaller die is a Right-handed one while the larger die (3”) is a Left-handed one. These don’t roll under the furniture so easily... . ....

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #3: Preparing Lamination Strips

02-12-2010 07:44 AM by sras | 9 comments »

There are three curved parts in each stool. These are formed by gluing up thin strips to create a thicker laminated part. The three parts are: 1. Seat Back – 7/8” thick (formed with 5 or 6 strips)2. Back Rest – 7/8” thick (formed with 5 or 6 strips)3. Slats – 3/8” thick (formed with 3 or 4 strips) (5 per stool) As I plan the construction, I start to realize that I have 6 stools with 7 curved parts each. That works out to 42 glue ups. Each one requires...

Pen Making Video (from a 5 year old's point of view)

02-12-2010 07:42 AM by tooldad | 19 comments »

I have been making project and safety videos as makeups for my students. My son, Turner, wants to get in on the fun. He actually turns most of the pen. He has helped me with about half a dozen pens or so. He even wants a lathe for Christmas this year! Now that makes a shop teacher dad proud! See below for updated link if you cannot view this one. (I hope)

Work bench #1: Preparing and gluing the top.

02-12-2010 07:41 AM by Dean10 | 11 comments »

Right now I’m making a bench for woodworking this summer. Ive started with the top. To begin, I salvaged wood from my schools old gym floor (Hard rock maple, absolutely freeee, because i have friends in high places :D), next, i took out all the nails and trimmed up the end grain. Then my instructure helped me rip off the grove and tongue joints from the flooring, and I planed it to nice looking peices of lumber. Tonight me and him glued up 1 of 3 segments of the table, which i’ll ...

A Jig that worked well for me

02-12-2010 06:37 AM by danr | 11 comments »

Hello, OK, I figured out the picture thing. Most of the photos are cropped off on the right side (as the instructions said they would be). Next time I will take this into account when taking the pics…..... Just wanted to post a quick blog to show a new jig that I have built to cut spline slots for a Greene and Greene table top (i.e. the bread-board ends). I have seen a few ways to do this here on this site and other places (thanks to all LumberJocks for all of the great ideas I ha...

Twin-Sized Bed With Pull-Out Desk, Closet, and Dresser #8: Completing it: The Bed Box, and Guides for the Desk, and Assembly(!)

02-12-2010 06:24 AM by gbarteck | 1 comment »

A surprise…My customer (14-year-old son) informs me…after the dresser and closet were completed that he would like an “extra long” twin mattress, rather than a standard. A little research shows that a standard twin is 75 inches long, and an extra long twin is 80 inches. The nice thing about the modular design of this bed is that it can accomodate the longer bed box. But if I would have known before the dresser was built, I could have made it 5 inches wider (larger...

Upholstered Queen Bed Construction Process #4: Ready to go to the Upholsterer

02-12-2010 06:16 AM by Tango | 3 comments »

Finally, after more than a week with no chance to get things done, I managed to finish the construction of the frame and now is ready to go to the upholsterer. My son helped a lot. Otherwise I would not able to move around my tiny shop. The pictures are from the bed, unassembled. The upholsterer requested the frame to be totally “clean”, no hardware, no legs, no slats… I put the parts in place to show how will look when finish. Next week I will go check the advance of ...

Download Low Res .mp4Download HD .mp4Download HD .wmv In March, the Guild will be embarking on our very first “Guild Build”: a simple Shaker end-table. I am dedicating the entire event to Guild-member Duane Moore. You remember Duane right? He’s the guy from the Steamer Trunk Series. Duane received some difficult news recently concerning his battle with cancer, and I am doing everything I can to help out. For every Guild member who builds this table, and sends me a pic...
