Computer Desk #1: Up to this point...

07-15-2010 06:10 AM by Scott G. | 3 comments »

It begins with a friend asking me if I could make him something after learning I had completed my apprenticeship. “Yep, I can make you something, what do you have in mind?” He told me he wanted a new computer desk, because the one he’s using is uncool. The guy I apprenticed with specialized in tables and bookshelves, so that seemed right up my alley. I was enthusiastic that I could make a little money doing what I had set out to do in the first place. It was looki...

Mikros Kosmos #10: And they say the outside doesn't count

07-15-2010 05:24 AM by tyskkvinna | 14 comments »

I was actually going to work on other things today, but I ended up having a really rough day and wanted something quiet to focus on. So I shifted gears and worked on the tiny house a little bit, though I opted to not work on the saw. (At least not until later—but that’s another story) After some heavy debate, I painted these pieces yellow. And these pieces red. I put a lot of debate into that, actually, and whether I should just paint the big pieces or do somethin...

Extremely Average #194: The Jig is Finished

07-15-2010 05:10 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, I finished the bandsaw small piece resaw and bread holder jig. Ok, I don’t actually intend to hold a loaf of bread for resawing, but I am pretty sure one could slice a baguette up in no time. I digress. I had an error to fix from yesterday and tonight’s blog is about my successful triumph and there is a picture of my first, rather thin, cut I made using it. I am very happy with the results. http://su.pr/19x9iI I also included a photo of how I set up the sho...

Chairmaking at the Appalachian Center for Craft #4: Day 4

07-15-2010 04:17 AM by doorslammer | 2 comments »

Not a whole lot of visual activity today. It was mostly a day of sanding and a couple glue ups. Just one of those days where you put the iPod on and let your mind wander as you go through the monotony of hand sanding all the parts before the glue up. Except I forgot mine today so I just had to sit there and listen to the swish swish swish. Once sanded, I glued up both sides of the chair as sub-assemblies. While these were drying I finished shaping and sanding my front rail. I’m par...

The New Workbench Journey #1: The Journey Begins

07-15-2010 03:32 AM by DrJosh | 2 comments »

I have been woodworking now, off and on as a definite amateur, for about 4-5 years now. And in all that time, I have never really had a proper workbench. I purchased a “workbench” from a local store that I assembled and then found to be very wimpy and flimsy. I also purcahsed a set of brackets for a workbench kit from Home Depot that I built using 2×4’s and plywood. That bench is better, but it’s still not a proper woodworking bench. I have built a nice handful of...

Trying to give back to the wife... (Help needed!)

07-15-2010 01:58 AM by mckenziedrums | 2 comments »

So the wife has been VERY generous lately and let me pick up a lathe and all kinds of fun pen making parts and wood… SO… I wanted to do something nice for her in return. I’ve entered her in a local contest that could win her a trip to the spa with some gal pals. Here’s the link: http://charlotteobserver.upickem.net/engine/Details.aspx?p=V&c=19185&s=4460863&i=1&m=X#SD Please vote if you get a chance. You can vote once an hour but even once would...

Sketchup Plan of the Dedicated Mitre Sled for the Tablesaw

07-15-2010 01:14 AM by Bob Simmons | 10 comments »

Woodworking plans are great for the woodworker as they help you visualize the material that you need as well as give you the necessary layout. A 3D model of the dedicated mitre sled is now available for download. It can be downloaded at this link. Google offers free accounts if you do not already have an existing account. Keep in mind that the dimensions and the layout of the runners may vary for your tablesaw. Also, use the available materials that you have and customize the sled t...

Queen Anne Side Table #5: Drawer Dovetailing and Cockbeading

07-15-2010 12:20 AM by ShannonRogers | 1 comment »

I’m a little late getting this up for my LJ brethren since it has been up on my site for a week now. Sorry about that guys. Here I build the drawer and add my faux cockbead to the front. You will often find a scratched bead like this on backcountry or souther period furniture. The full cockbead took more time and therefore was more expensive. This was another option to achieve that beaded effect for the less discerning customer. Enjoy the show!

Sleepydogs Blog #4: World Scroll Saw Expo Parts 1 and 2

07-14-2010 11:36 PM by joey | 2 comments »

I got to go to the World Scroll Saw Expo last weekend in Wilmington Ohio, Which is my own back yard, since I only live thirteen miles from Wilmington. The Expo was cool to say the lease and really got me excited to play with my scroll saw agian. I only have a cheap saw but it does what I ask it to do, but if I ever really want to get into some of the kind of work that these folks do I might have to re-think that! There is three parts to my blog post the first post is just pictures from the sh...

Just for Fun... #25: The Trays Begin...

07-14-2010 09:35 PM by littlecope | 11 comments »

In the last episode it was decided that, because this Box is a little bigger than usual, I’d be making some trays for it. I guess I’m still anxious to use the new toy, because I sized the wood I’ll be using last… first!!After Re-sawing another scrap of the Cherry, I thinned it down on the Jointer to about 3/16”. These will be for the bottoms of the two trays…With the Imbuia top, and Cherry sides on the outer Box, I’m going with Imbuia sides and Cherry...
