Or as done as it’s going to be. So here’s the finish up. The last entry had me down to the drawers and putting in the bottom. This shot shows where I put in some guidelines to set the bottom. I hide the side so I could see where to guide the bottom. I also tried to do the move by using the x-ray function (found under view on the program’s menu bar). You can see here where I moved the bottom in – notice the inference dot. The next two shots j...

We have fninshed the first step in the Turquoise inlay process, I was really surprised how the color really pops out. We are waiting on our sandpaper to arrive and once it gets here we can get these tables completed
I’m still working on this project and the drawers are coming closer. As with anything there are numerous ways to get to the same destination. DaveR, who has the patience of a saint, has been trying to show me how to do this project. See this entry http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/Betsy/blog/5575 I’ve been struggling with this technique – not sure why – but it is what it is. Long and short I came up with an alternate method that probably won’t work if I were ...
Since I seem to blog about every other woodworking thing I do, I figure I might as well do so with my “recovery projects.” Hopefully, it will help me see my progress in some concrete way. So today I spent my limited shop time setting up for a scroll saw project. I had to set up my Dremel tool in it’s drill press jig so I can drill my starter holes, picked out my blades and found a piece of stock. I’ve chosen a project from “North American Wildlife Patterns ...
OK, let me apologize right up front…I didn’t take any pictures of the next few operations..they were really basic stuff, and I was so focused on completing them I just didn’t think to grab the camera. I last left you when all the trays were glued up and ready for routing. First I did some preliminary sanding of the ends. I clamped the top and bottoms together and installed the belt on my Rigid drum sander. I clamped a temporary straight edge perpendicular to the belt to keep...
I distinctly remember a little over a year ago thinking to myself “If only I had a table saw, I could do anything I needed to do!” How naive I was. After picking up a cheap saw and struggling for a year with it, I am just now getting to where I can make some really great cuts with it. This was after, though, building a huge sled twice the size of the saw’s table and making other small adjustments as I went and countless other one time use jigs for certain cuts. All of th...
Got a chance to push the workbench a little farther along last weekend so a quick update on my progress. When I last left off, I had dry fit the mortise and tennon joints for the legs together having primarily hand cut them with chisels. I was awaiting the arrival of my steel city drill press which finally showed up mid June or so and that lay in my garage for another couple of weeks in its box. Had a party with some guitar buidling friends and they got it up out of the box and together re...
So here is the entry of my pull out trash can box thing where i show the finish. due to prefinishing i have already done most of the finishing and put some parts together so i figured i would show that now. and then next week i will probably have the finished project up. so to start of course i sanded the piece to 180. i would not recommend using sycamore with hand tools. it doesn’t work well at all, and its hard to tell which way the grain is running. dovetails are really hard with syc...
I just built this router table out of Oak plywood, Oak trim, and a Pine drawer. It’s from a plan in Woodsmith This project appeared in Woodsmith Magazine No. 131, Vol. 22 / No.8 I’ve added the link to the plan below. The drawer has full slide hardware. I guess the fun part is building a router table without a router table ;-) . I’ve used it quite a bit so far and really like it. http://www.woodsmith.com/plans/ultimate-router-table/ John GrayEffingham, ...
