Bowling Alley Workbench #13: The Top #3: Putting it Together with an Inverted Dovetail

08-02-2009 10:56 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Didn’t have much shoptime lately, which made me try to squeeze every moment I got to try and make the most of it, which lead to rushing, which lead to screw up – but I’ll write more about that in a following installment and leave this one a bit more on the positive side. Last time I ran into the issue of having a not-square top part to work with. I fixed that by routing the edge at a 0.1 degree angle to straighten the front of the slab and make it parallel to the front 2 ...

A one year anniversary

08-02-2009 08:26 PM by Woodbutchery | 12 comments »

A year ago, yesterday, I logged into a site that showed a lot of promise. Pictures of projects that looked like they would inspire me to other projects, other ideas of what to do with wood and woodworking. And now a year’s gone by, and I continue to find myself humbled by the number of projects that are submitted on a daily basis, and the quality that speaks of the work in each of them. Every time I log in here I learn something new, and am reminded of how much more I have to learn...

Sqeezing more shop into small space continues #4.

08-02-2009 04:36 AM by dbhost | 2 comments »

The shop organization and remodeling continues, on a far less aggressive note today. With daytime highs near 100 degrees F, overnight lows just barely dipping below 80, and murderous humidity, the shop has been what we call HOT… And I have been working my tail off out there. I have muscles that are sore that I forgot I had, and I have had a nasty headache all day today. Combine that with the swarms of blood thirsty mosquitoes that Deep Woods Off seems to be an appetizer for, and s...

Big Pine Board Suggestions---First steps--Roughing it out

08-02-2009 03:59 AM by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Hello again all, After thinking about and looking at the suggestions provided, I decided to take a piece of one suggestion and run with it. I am going to take this 8’ board and turn it into a couch table—kinda. Ulimately this will end up being four separate tables linked together by puzzle piece cutouts. If you want one table about 24 inches square, you only use one part of the table. If you need a longer table (maybe for serving at a party) you can piece together up to all fou...

New Crib #4

08-02-2009 03:51 AM by MOJOE | 4 comments »

Well, I spent Thursday afternoon looking through 2 Home Depot’s worth of birch plywood. I finally found 3 pieces that suited my needs. I actually found a 1/4 sheet that had some very procounced dark brown streaks (maybe spalting…not sure) anyway, I used it for the center of my headboard panel. I also routed a rabbit/groove in the back side to accept the panels, and put in ogee around the perimeter of each panel in the front. Today I cut the panels to fit and glued them up. I ...
