Playset #4: Change of plans

07-20-2010 02:32 AM by Roostermiester | 1 comment »

As plans usually do, this one has changed. The wife didn’t care for the idea of the playhouse on the playset once she learned I was planning on making it house-like. “If you want a playhouse, build a playhouse.” Well, my idea was to build a playhouse and a playset combined. So, the playhouse has transformed into more of a fort, what you would usually find on a playset. In many ways this is good – it’s much easier to build! Below is the revised plan I drew u...

How to make Bandings for Wood Inlay #1: 1

07-20-2010 01:50 AM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

Has there ever been a time when you saw a wood banding design inlaid into a table, jewelry box, or picture frame and you asked yourself the question “How did they create the banding?” I did too. Fortunately, about two years ago I came across a video on Woodtreks and it was there that I witnessed a craftsman form Orion Woodworks that explained the process of this particular banding design. The following is my interpretation. Pictured above is the look that I’m after. N...

Trestle Table for Dining Room #7: Almost there!

07-20-2010 01:27 AM by scopemonkey | 6 comments »

I’m about as good at blogging as I am at woodworking, so I haven’t been very good at keeping this going. I have spent the past few weeks working with a bit of vacation thrown in but have got back to work on the trestle table. I am at that stage of a project that I really want to be done with it, so I purposefully slow myself down so I don’t make stupid, rushed mistakes. I cut the curves on the feet, risers, beam, and support arms on the band saw and then did lots of san...

Handmade Jewellery Box #5: The final frontier

07-19-2010 11:15 PM by Flemming | 8 comments »

WELL ladies and gentlemen… the journey that was the jewellery box has come to an end. I am quite pleased with the final outcome. I havnt taken many pictures, it’s late here and there’s no good light available, but thought you might like to see it before I upload some pictures to the finished projects section. I give you, the jewellery box: a view of the front side of the box, with the latch in place. a view of the marquetry I did, it’s finished laqueri...

Natural Edged Maple Burl Bowl I Saw

07-19-2010 10:47 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 0 comments »

On my way from the ferry to the Sounders game yesterday my wife & I passed a Woodworking Store (in the Pioneer Square area of Seattle on First) that sold handcrafted items. Displayed in the window was a natural edged maple burl bowl probably close to 20” in dia & close to 12” high that was simply GEORGOUS. The chest it was sitting on was beautiful as well. It was in the same shape as my maple bowl I just posted. I told my wife that the cost of the burl alone was severa...

Safety Article: The Most Dangerous Power Tools

07-19-2010 08:21 PM by Brian Havens | 4 comments »

The Most Dangerous Power Tools Saw this on Twitter this morning, along with the follow up article. Since the evaluation is based on shear numbers of incidences, I do not consider it accurate for woodworking. As woodworkers, we have a double-edged sword: On the one hand, we are much more cognizant of safety tha...

Music Stand III #3: Part III Gluing the tripod base

07-19-2010 07:13 PM by Alan Young | 2 comments »

I made some progress on my music stand design. Today we’ll show the glue up process of the legs and final assembly, glue-up and shaping of the tripod base. Gluing the legs to the center triangle block requires a paced processes. I used liquid hide glue for a longer open time and it’s “creep” avoidance. I glued the legs one at a time and let the clamped assembly set overnight -longer than the specified requirement but it increases my comfort zone. I made a b...

my new (old) toy, a craftsman 113.299315 Table saw

07-19-2010 06:33 PM by Estley | 6 comments »

;; So I was looking at tools on craigslist and I found a craftsman saw, from a guy that lived not a mile from my house, and $150 later it’s mine. It’s all stock, my first priority is cleaning it, getting rid of the rust on the top. After that I’m putting in new pulleys/link belt, and eventually a new fence….. Here are the “before” pictures…. Any advice is welcome and appreciated…. also I know several of you have gone thru this process, if ...
