David's [aka Patron] double version of the jig? #3: Just kidding!

06-13-2009 01:05 PM by degoose | 8 comments »

Basic 1/4 ” plywood.. mark a line at a diagonal across the board.NB. the sharper the angle the longer the piece that can be cut.Inset two bearings on this line 19” on centre to enable the use of the 9.5” Radius template from the first jig with single curve. Fit a bolt in the righthand bearing and fit to the bearing in the base unit.. turn on bandsaw and cut the curve till you reach the line and then change pivot points to the left hand side of both the jig and the base unit ...

Allyson's Nightstand #2: Dry Fit

06-13-2009 08:50 AM by Thomas Keefe | 4 comments »

Many of the nightstand components are complete now and I am getting ready to start gluing. I plan to glue up several intermediate components and then glue the components together. The first component includes the two front legs and the upper and lower drawer rails. These pieces are all sanded now and I plan to glue them up shortly. The next piece will include the two back legs and the back apron. Finally, I will connect the front and back with the side aprons, center drawer rails and the bott...

Copper Patina Garden Gate #8: Bent Laminated Stays

06-13-2009 06:43 AM by newTim | 0 comments »

There are a number of ways to hold the panel in place. You could cut a rabbet on the inside edge, or you could cut a groove on the inside of the stiles and rails like a cabinet door panel. I chose to stick with the method David Marks used, panel stays. Yet once again, there is an arch to deal with. This time I thought I would just use the top rail as a bending template for a bent lamination to ensure a good fit. The plan was to resaw thin strips 2” wide and just long enough to fit ...

Step-back Cupboard Build #5: Plane, joint, glue, clamp and repeat.

06-13-2009 06:11 AM by rwyoung | 2 comments »

Tonight was panel making time for the 6 shelves in this cupboard. The bottom and middle shelves are wider because they will dado into the sides. Furthermore, the center shelf gets even more treatment because it forms the top of the closed portion of the cupboard and extends out a little on three sides. Here is what the finish sized blank for the center shelf looks like:The lip will be have a thumbnail edge added for a little bit of detail. There are two lower “floating” sh...

Walnut and Birch ply T.V. stand #1: Working on a T.V. stand

06-13-2009 03:16 AM by woodnut | 1 comment »

Hello guys its been awhile thought I would let you know what I’m up to. Well I’m not getting alot of commisioned stuff right now, so I have time now to do what the wife wants and that is a T.V. stand. The stand will be made with Walnut and I will use birch ply for the carcass, the stand will be a corner unit with some storage above and below the T.V. I have to say it really is more enjoyable to work on your own pieces, you can take all the liberties you want and not have to c...

003: under [garage] door shelving cabinet #5: and now, some doors

06-13-2009 02:47 AM by Gary Fixler | 5 comments »

When we last left off, I was about to glue up the first cabinet door. Here it is clamped and drying: Here’s a detail (the wet marks at the left are just from wiping out glue – they dried up and disappeared): And because time-lapse videos are so fun, here’s the glue-up of the second door: And now the finished doors. Well… finished gluing together. Now there’s still sanding and coats of whatever I decide to use. I’ve been thinking of de...

Jellyfish Table #1: Sketchup Design

06-13-2009 12:42 AM by Blake | 13 comments »

A friend of mine has been telling me for a while that he had shown his parents my website and that they love my work and wanted me to make them something. Well they eventually contacted me and commissioned me to make a table for them. They bought a lamp from an artist named Brian Giambastiani, which looks like a Jellyfish. The head, which illuminates, is made of blown glass, and the tentacles are copper wire. It is about 40” tall. So my challenge was to build a table that ...
