Workshop Development #15: Router table fence V3.0 is underway!

01-24-2011 05:41 PM by dbhost | 12 comments »

The Ryobi router fence clamps leave a LOT to be desired in the way of stability, so I found myself staring at a pile of 3/4” plywood cutoffs and thinking. I know that’s dangerous, but I was doing it… It finally hit me how to build the sliding faces (I have all this T track and it took me this long?).... So I got busy, not really with a plan of any sort sketched out, but rather, with it all in my head. 24” wide x 6” tall, faces adjust on T tracks, and a fixed face...

Time lapse Woodworking #7: Resawing a 13'' tall 8/4 walnut board

01-24-2011 05:31 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 11 comments »

Here is another video in our time lapse woodworking series, this time around I’m re-sawing a 13’’ 8/4 solid Canadian Black Walnut board about 33’’ long into 4 pieces that need to end up 3/8’’ thick. These will be the panels in a frame and panel center divider for a shelving unit we’re building for a display for a local store. First I throw on a new blade, I’m just using a 3/8’’ blade from our local band saw blade place cal...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #235: Two Designs Completed

01-24-2011 01:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Well, the cats are still alive. When I awoke this morning, all the electronics seem to be working. Nothing was chewed. No one got sick on the floor (that I have seen.) The water dish was only dragged slightly from its normal place, with only a little water spilled. It’s going to be a good day! :D There is another 4-5 inches of snow on the ground this morning (more flurries!) and it is really looking pretty outside. I need to go to the post office today though to mail out an order....

After I got out of the Navy, (carpenter there too) I joined the carpenter’s union and did most...

carving "Thunderbolt" #4: finishing muscle groups and starting the saddle

01-24-2011 07:38 AM by mpounders | 6 comments »

He’s starting to look like a horse now, with the muscle groups indicated. I spent quite a bit of time getting the spacing better between the legs and defining the groups of muscles around the legs. A technique I like is to carve the lines and then to sand them so that you get a flowing muscle look instead of something defined by a line cut into the surface. I like to use my veiners for this and then carve or sand the edges back up to the center. Here are a few pictures. When ...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #11: Almost there...

All that’s left is drawer pulls, the bottom shelfs, and a few more coats of finish. I decicded to stick with a natural finish and I’m glad I did but the tops came out way lighter than the rest of it. I will probobly put some dye on it to help it blend better. Here’s one of the tables with the first coat of finish:

My new Roubo #9: Leg tenons done

01-24-2011 05:56 AM by JasonD | 3 comments »

I got the leg tenons cut throughout the week and got them trued up tonight. I don’t own a shoulder plane, but I have a Stanley rabbet plane that did the job. I’m going to start working on the stretchers tomorrow; short ones first, then the long ones. I can’t believe that I’m finally getting close to being able to assemble the main structure. Don’t know how much shop time I’ll get over this next week. One of my students has started scheduling regul...
