Tree IDs #6: First mystery tree followup - Orchid Tree (Bauhinia variegata)

2000 days ago by Gary Fixler | 2 comments »

Our very own socalwood immediately picked off my first mystery tree. It would seem indeed to be a Bauhinia variegata, known commonly as the orchid tree. I took a look through the world of the Bauhinia, and for a time almost thought it was Bauhinia purpurea, The Free Dictionary’s other possibility (entry 1). Apparently I’m not alone in this confusion, but shots of B. purpurea, like the one in the Wikipedia article seem quite different. Another name that occasionally popped up was B...

Weather Station #3: Fitting the instruments

2000 days ago by newTim | 3 comments »

I thought about these next steps all day today. This is another great thing about woodworking. I always have something to think about, something to plan, something to look forward to. This is turning out to be a fun little project. Next step is to figure out the style of base and top. I’m debating whether (pun) to do a pivoting top or a hinged top like a box lid. In either case I’m thinking about adding small magnets to hold it in place. It will give me something to think a...

Weather Station #2: Its a bird... its a plane...

2000 days ago by newTim | 3 comments »

No. Its a highly engineered, precision instrument capable of lining up the parts of a Weather Station so accurate holes can be drilled for a perfect fit. In other words, a jig.

Holtzapffel Workbench #2: Base assembly complete

2000 days ago by cylis007 | 3 comments »

I have completed the base assembly finally. The stretchers and legs are permanently attached using the drawbore technique. I still have to cut the pins flush and chamfer the edges. I made dowels from an oak board using a dowel plate. What a forearm workout! Other than assembling the base, I have been getting a game plan together for the top and face vise. The next thing that I need to do is prep the boards for the top. I have cut the boards a little over 6ft. long and will begin ...

Marquetry Demo #1: Marquetry Tutorial - VERY rough

2000 days ago by TheCaver | 16 comments »

Let me make a disclaimer here. Some people requested a procedural series on this and I threw this together in 17 minutes! There are mistakes and this thing is ROUGH at best, but it will give you an idea on how to get started…Think of it as an outline, not an exhaustive tutorial…..Off we go…. You’ll need these items….Veneer, a craft knife with a new xacto blade (don’t use cheap off brands, the good ones are less frustrating and they don’t cost that ...

Roubo Bench - sweating

2001 days ago by kenn | 8 comments »

Ok, here is the hard work and sweat that needs done – the underside of the top need to be reasonably flat. It is 23 3/8” wide by 9’ 5”long. First up is the scrub plane to get rid of a bit of misalignment from glue up. Here is the last of the scrub plane work. Next I used my #5 jack plane with a blade that has a bit if crown on it to get things flat. As I worked, I checked my progress across each side and for wind and marked the areas that still needed work w...

Roubo Bench - The beginning

2001 days ago by kenn | 6 comments »

I decided that I needed/wanted a new workbench and after some research, including Chris Schwartz’s book, I settled on the Roubo style. I gave a lot of thought to my work style and needs, and here are my excuses for needing a new bench (just in case my wife decides to check out my lumberjocks page before I get this baby built). My work includes windsor chairmaking so I wanted a Record style vise placed in the end vise postion. I have used this style vise in this location at Mike Dun...
