With all the trouble I had making the top for this small table, the wrap-up was utterly anti-climatic. I was determined to attach the legs with carriage bolts when the top was completed, and so I did…First I clamped the legs one by one, along with the “Sandwiches” (and some scraps to protect the piece!) in place and hand drilled a 1/4” hole through the lot of them…Insert the bolt, tighten the nut over the washer, and these are on there strong enough for me to sta...

For the project I am currently working on, I required a perfect curve for the front of a desk and for two shelves. Because the top material is Melamine Faced Chipboard, I decided to strengthen this by using construction grade ply. This gave me a good practice material to get the curve right, before cutting the MFC, which is 3 times the price of ply! Although I own two routers, I have never really used them to cut. I was looking through Fine Woodworking website and came across a build off vide...
In a recent forum topic I asked for help on curving a desk front. A suggestion came from Kent Shepherd to try water or steam bending. I have to say that I instantly dismissed this idea, more through fear of the unknown than anything else!Well, I tried laminating 4mm strips of oak, but just couldn’t get the finish I wanted, so, I decided to at least look into steam bending. Well, yet again, my Lumberjocks family has come through!I didn’t have to look very hard to find lots of entri...
Hello Friends! I am finally back from Iraq (back to Germany with my family that is) and have started the process of making new Totes and Knobs for my Bailey collection for my #3,#4,#5.#6, and #7. I posted earlier about my “Deployment Gift” purchase http://lumberjocks.com/topics/18574 that included new Hock Blades. I was able to print out LeeValley’s Tote diagram and successfully rough new Totes for my entire Bailey collection. Tomorrow I will turn the front Knobs and hopefu...
