Charles Neil build along mahogany lowboy "series" #12: week

06-12-2010 11:43 PM by a1Jim | 29 comments »

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, #12 When I left you last time, I’d just finished with installing the drawer dividers. Now, I finish the top rail dovetails by cleaning the sockets with a chisel, until the top of the dovetail is flush with the top.Now I need to trim the top even with the top of the legs. It’s time to turn my attention to the side scrolls. I start by printing out the PDF that Charles provides for subscribers of his “Mastering Woodworking” series. After g...

Garage sale find plus TLC equals nice plane

06-12-2010 09:24 PM by Shopsmithtom | 7 comments »

The other day I stopped at a garage sale in my neighborhood & lo & behold, (wow, I must be getting old, who uses that phrase anymore?) there was a bunch of tools in a box…hickory handled hammer, 2 vice grips, Stanley bit brace, Craftsman channel-lock, a few odds & ends (yes, both odds & ends…not just odds or just ends) and a used but not abused Sargent jack plane. Price for the box: $10. Now, mind you, I’m not a plane collector. But I do have a lot of hand...

1 year Anniversary on LJ's

06-12-2010 08:04 PM by reggiek | 8 comments »

This afternoon marks my one year anniversary of joining LJ’s. Even though I had read the blogs and such for several months prior to that, I did not decide to join until this date one year ago. Taking a moment to reflect on the prior year, I would say that this site has given me enormous help, including the tips, tool reviews, ideas and inspirations…but most of all the comaraderie with people that share this love of woodworking. Thank you Martin for providing such an excellen...

Playroom #3: Lighting Retrofit

06-12-2010 07:42 PM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

So as I previously posted in Let there be more light I added a lamp to my daughters playhouse. I had just used some liquid nail to attach it to the shelf. This did a good job of holding up for a few months until one of her friends decided to use the lamp pull cord as a swing. The lip around the lamp was not that large and the lamp fell. Luckily it fell into the loft and not the entire way to the floor. But a new holding mechanism was needed.. So here is the new way it works. I drilled ...

A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #2: A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #2

06-12-2010 06:12 PM by Bob Simmons | 4 comments »

On the following day after the glue has set, the band clamps are removed. It is time to begin truing up the ring of segments. In order to attain flatness on one of the ring’s edge I’ll lay a segment flat on the bed of the disc sander. It’s important to maintain a 90 degree angle during this operation. Take your time and make sure of accuracy. When the edge is truly flat we can then proceed to the lathe. Now the ring is mounted on the lathe and the opposite edge...

The Impossible #3: MI-2

06-12-2010 05:29 PM by BritBoxmaker | 29 comments »

Hello back again. I really don’t like glue-ups with pieces that have angles other than 90°. Strange really considering I make boxes with mitred joints. No matter, first question. Who can spot something missing from this picture This is how I found the workbench this morning. I could have sworn (and I do, a lot) that I had cut five 30mm pieces of Sycamore and theres only four there. In devon we have a special brand of pixie, called the f**kup pixie. They had obviously been in, ove...

Built-In Bookcases and Mantel Surround #4: Possibly adding a drawer, or discreet compartment?

06-12-2010 04:54 PM by Jonathan | 5 comments »

Before I address the title of this blog entry, I must back up a bit here. I have not been working on the bookcases and mantel for several weeks because near the end of May, my grandfather became very ill and passed away on June 1st. Our family left town at the end of last weekend after the service was held. In the midst of all this turmoil, several sections of our back fence blew over during some 50-60mph winds. We were going to replace this fence either later this fall, or possibly next spri...
