Work Bench Magazine

01-02-2011 04:46 PM by ElmoSr | 10 comments »

All I want to do today is vent,,,,my favorite magazine has sold out. I have been reading/using Work Bench for 20 years, and I have a collection going back to the 50’s. They have so changed the format that Work Bench has completely nothing like Work Bench was. Am I the only person that dislikes this change.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #213: Website Updates

01-02-2011 02:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

It seems that there is always something new to learn. I am happy that I like learning new things though and I hope I always feel this way. I spent the working portion of my day yesterday learning how to do more stuff on the site as we are preparing it for the latest update. Although it took a little time and effort to learn the processes on the new software, I am really happy with the results and how things are beginning to look. It has only been a couple of months since we changed over ...

what i've been doing #4: more bench

01-02-2011 07:07 AM by Dave | 0 comments »

Today has tested my match planning ability. As you can see the design of the legs leaves me very little 90 degree true edges to work with. Look at the figure in this black walnut board. My wife and i love the sapwood. It even has figure. i cant wait to cut some dovetails in this with my new Japanese saw.

Extremely Average #314: I did it!

01-02-2011 06:16 AM by Ecocandle | 18 comments »

Hello All, I just posted chapter 35 Henry Wood. I wrote a blog piece every day of the last year. In truth, because of guest blogging, I actually wrote around 380 posts, but the point is, I didn’t take a day off! I couldn’t have made it without all of your kind words. Thanks, Brian

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #8: Plugs and Splines

01-02-2011 06:16 AM by Don | 9 comments »

Had I realized there are a total of 40 decorative plugs and splines required for each table I might have chosen some other project. This is going to get real tedious by the time I’m done but I think it will be worth it… The bread board spline is pretty straight forward. Here’s a trial spline I made with hickory and a black sharpie for practice: For the plugs on the legs I made a few jigs to help mark the cuts. If I just layed them out with pencil I’m sure I w...

Beads Box #8: Drawers Construction

01-02-2011 04:14 AM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

Today I was able to resaw some 3/4” boards to make the 3/8” (slightly less) material for the drawers, cut the parts, and joinery, and put it all together for a dry fit. I had originally planned on having 9 individual drawers in the center compartment, but for lack of materials and time, I ended up making 3 large drawers and I’ll put dividers in those and see how it goes, for ease of use it might be better to make 3 smaller boxes for each drawer so that each one can be tak...

Facets, the Next Logical Step #5: Alignment and Trimming the Marquetry

01-02-2011 02:51 AM by shipwright | 17 comments »

The dying has been postponed.. As of the events discussed in my last entry, the gluing bacame the priority and the dying will have to be done afterwards, maybe even after assembly. The colors seen here are not necessarily representative of the final look as the green has been “washed out” somewhat and in the case of the center, it has been sanded. This can all be fixed later (I hope). The most critical job left to be done is the alignment and trimming of the veneers, specifical...

The Basement #11: Incra Router Table - Bit Storage

01-02-2011 12:30 AM by JL7 | 5 comments »

Added a bit shelf and a drawer to the table, both out of Maple. The shelf is 1” thick laminated from narrow strips basically cutting board style with breadboard ends. I used a little spray adhesive and some graph paper as a drilling guide – despite that I did manage to drill 2 holes off location…...... The template holder just sits on the bottom and you can slide it out a bit to grab what you need. The drawer box is painted MDF ...

Miscellany #1: Tools from the past

01-01-2011 11:25 PM by Hoakie | 5 comments »

You may recall that I inherited my grandfather’s Radial Arm Saw about a decade ago (see shop pics) so this past month, I got to talking with my Dad and asked him if he still had any of Grandpa’s other tools. He said he did and would bring them to me over the holidays. I have attached pictures of what was included. There are quite a few tools from the early 1900’s and I did a quick search on the wooden plane and it looks like it was produced from 1865-1893 by the New Yor...
