Shaker Wall Clock #1: Progress So Far...

1896 days ago by thiel | 4 comments »

I’ve been chipping away at this an hour or two at a time. I’m almost finished with this Shaker Wall Clock (a la Norm) in Peruvian Walnut. I’m going to design the face myself (and that’s just about the last thing I have to do!) Planned to use hidden hinges and magnets to close the doors. How do you all think I should finish this? Danish oil? —David

My workshop #1: Building it

1896 days ago by jrecord | 12 comments »

So, I am having a 20×24’ workshop (with 10’ walls) built by Tuff Shed in my backyard. First I needed a slab. So, the concrete guy dug, put in the forms, and the rebar. Then they poured the slab. A week later Tuff Shed showed up at 7:30 in the morning and started putting up the workshop. First they erected the prebuilt walls. Then they put up the roof trusses. And the roof. At 4:30 that afternoon they were done! Here is the interior. And painted to match t...

Projects Within Projects

1896 days ago by littlecope | 2 comments »

Sometimes, the means to produce a part of a project are nearly as interesting as the project itself! I’m building another box (Shock!! Surprise!!), similar to the “Quiet Little Oak Box” only larger. I again needed to cut some skewed tenons.I didn’t want to do it the same way as last time. Not that it didn’t work, but I wanted more control and accuracy. Also, this time was not a change of mind, where I could use the first, straight tenons as a handy guide for sawi...

Knitting box #4: Drawer Dovetails

1896 days ago by Luke | 0 comments »

Cutting the Dovetail pins. This curly maple is so much softer than the zebrawood. phew Chiseling the pins. I like to use the chisel the whole way. I used to get out the coping saw and cut off most of the tail clearing but it’s way faster to just take them out with the chisel as you go along. It took me about 40 minutes to cut and chisel the tails which is about 16 tail recesses total. There are some great links on youtube for cutting them by hand.

391challenge pen #2: cut, drilled and tubes glued in!

1896 days ago by jeffthewoodwacker | 5 comments »

This morning I inspected the 391 challenge cherry burl blanks. After taking the duct tape off of the piece that had gnarly voids it appeared that the turquoise inlace material had filled all the gaps and was hard as a rock. I am going to turn a modified slimline pen and had to drill 7 mm holes for the brass tubes. My pen vise will not work on these blanks as they are odd shaped and I want to get a hole that is close to center. A home made jig worked perfect to drill both bla...

Ironing Veneer

1896 days ago by tenontim | 8 comments »

After many comments and questions about the veneer ironing method, I made some time to do a blog on how I use this technique. The items needed are the same as used in the regular method of veneering; a straight edge, sharp knife (I use a scalpel), veneer tape, sandpaper, glue, distilled water, measuring cup, and a paint brush. Additionally, you’ll need an iron. Pick out your veneer and substrate, I usually use mdf. First, I match up any pieces that I need to make a large enough pi...
