Shaker Table - Woodworkers Fighting Cancer #2: My First Mortise

03-05-2010 05:30 PM by Kerry Drake | 2 comments »

Started working on the Mortises for the Shaker Table March Guild Build. Pulled out my drill press that I haven’t used sense June and added a auxiliary table to it so I could put on a fence to keep all my mortises in exactly the same position. This is my first time using Birch and it seems fairly hard to me. Was getting a little smoke drilling my 1/4” holes, maybe the drill press is set to too slow a speed? Anyway got all the legs rough Mortised out. I’ve go...

Workbench #2: The internet is great

03-05-2010 07:30 AM by HungryTermite | 5 comments »

Let’s see, I haven’t really written any blog posts lately because I have been bogged down with work and grad school part deux. However, since I spend almost every waking minute not spent on those other things thinking about my workbench project as well as many countless hours on the CAD system, I thought it might be time to update some of my thinking on the design features I am thinking about as well as mention something I thought was really cool. Internet is cool moment #1. ...

My first Lazy Suzan.

03-05-2010 05:47 AM by Lupo | 3 comments »

I am building this for a friend Over Seas. Her name is Ines so that is what this is named also. The ” Lazy Ines ”. It ought to be fun to finish. I do not have a thickness planer so it has been all Hand Planers. Also the edges are being rounded out by hand with a rasp. You really appreciate the work when you have limited tools!!!!

Extremely Average #62: The Glockenspiel

03-05-2010 04:26 AM by Ecocandle | 10 comments »

The first side is sanded and now I am starting to route flat the other side. I believe this second side will go even better, as I am clamping down onto a flat side. I have just started and the cuts seem to be more uniform. This seems like progress to me. Earlier today, I got a message on Linkedin from a friend. She had found a writing contest, which required that one submit a story, under 300 words, using purple, tree, and glockenspiel. I felt that the gauntlet had been tossed at my fe...

Dovetail Bible Box #6: It's A Wrap

03-05-2010 02:17 AM by OutPutter | 3 comments »

Well, it’s been over three weeks since I put the finish on my box and contemplated putting on the hinges. Since then several things have happened. The weather was cold in Houston for a while and I moved the box inside the house for a while. Over that time, I noticed the bottom had bowed slightly and two small cracks formed in one end. Even though my sliding dovetail construction allowed the sides to move as the bottom contracted and expanded, it didn’t prevent the bottom from ...
