SYP Roubo #1: Top is Milled and Laminated

04-18-2009 11:51 PM by ustompsteve | 1 comment »

The top is finished except for trimming the ends and flattening. I used 2”x10”x8’ SYP joists and cut them in half. Jointed, planed and then cut them to 4.25” width on the table saw. I glued them up using Titebond III and a foam brush. I did them in groups of four (2 joists) at a time. I then jointed and planed those 5 groups of 4 and glued them all to each other in one big glue-up. I made clamping cauls using cut-offs covered w/ packing tape so they wouldn...

Weather Station: The Next Generation #5: Glue Up; That's the one I've been looking for.

04-18-2009 11:33 PM by newTim | 0 comments »

I remember Sen. Bob Dole telling the story of a day spent with his father loading hay bales into the barn’s loft. When he reached down to pick up the last one his dad stopped and asked, “do you know which one that is?” He went on to answer, “that’s the one we’ve been looking for all day.” Well sure enough I’ve finally gotten to the part I’ve been looking for. This is where all the templates, jigs, drilling, and such come together. N...

Tool thoughts #18: New fangled Bench almost complete

04-18-2009 04:21 PM by NedB | 5 comments »

Well the past two weeks the shop has actually warmed up to a point where I can be out there without losing body parts to frostbite. I hauled a few 2×4’s up to Grizz’s shop and we got nearly all of the parts cut to dimension. I could just as easily done it at my shop, but it was fun visiting his shop as always.Once I got them back in my shop, here’s what I wound up with:all cut to length and ready to go, except for the holes for the cross clamp piping. I tried asse...

Murphy Bed #3: Part 3

04-18-2009 04:12 PM by Gene47 | 3 comments »

I spent a couple of hours going over a suggestion that maybe I should make the bed outer case deeper so I can make the cabinets deeper so I got out the cutlist program and put in the new numbers and no matter what I came up with I was at least one sheet of plywood short. We choose Mahogany for this project and at $73.00 a sheet along with a 100 mile round trip to get it we just went back to the original plans. So off I went and using my new Gorilla Gripper carried the 1st sheet over to ...

Murphy Bed #2: Part 2

04-18-2009 03:58 PM by Gene47 | 1 comment »

I already had the pieces for the inner frame ripped and cut to length so I thought I would get the inner frame assembled today. The first thing I did was set up a stop system so I could keep the pieces aligned from end to end. Then since I am pretty sure I will be building at least 2 maybe 3 more of these I made a story stick for the hole locations that hold the cross frame members in a “L” shape. Then it was a matter of putting one piece between the stops laying dow...

Murphy Bed #1: Part 1

04-18-2009 03:46 PM by Gene47 | 2 comments »

After several months of planning and measuring as well as saving up the bucks to do this thing I started on my Murphy Bed with side Cabinets for one of our spare bedrooms. Since I live in a double wide mfg home this makes the most sense to free up the space in a modest 11×12 foot bedroom. I decided to use the hardware system from You can purchase this hardware kit from several different sources anywhere from $279 to $299. I found that the ones that were selli...

Work in progress

04-18-2009 04:05 AM by onehitwonder | 11 comments »

I began working on this in high school, but had to rush to finish in spring of senior year. I started with a Nakashima design for ideas then ran with my own vision (with a little guidance from my teacher). The entire piece was crafted by hand (with a little cheating here and there). As soon as I can gain access to a wood shop, I will do some touch-up work and finish polishing it. I have come a long way, but it is far from complete. Here is what I have so far… created in just over 2 semester...
