Roubo #12: Drawboring the Top

04-14-2009 04:11 AM by Jon3 | 10 comments »

I’m nervous about trying to keep my hand drill perpendicular, so I made a little jig to drill the holes. Worked out quite well. Just put some thick scrap in the drill press and drilled out the holes, then clamped it to the top. The dry fit was tricky. I did the dry fit, but it was going in tight. I also noticed I had two nice long wedges from the tombstone shape of the leg vice. They made excellent tools for forcing getting those tenons out of the too-tight mortises. ...

Another day, another nickle #16: Mud, Cows and More Cows.

04-14-2009 04:02 AM by Thos. Angle | 28 comments »

Well, here I am again. It has been a busy week. I hope Martin doesn’t get upset about me writing about this stuff instead of wood working. My friends here on LJ seem to enjoy hearing this drivel. On Wednesday, I got up at 3:30(AM) and saddled up and met the guys. We trucked about 30 miles east to the Forks division of the ranch. I had never been there so I had one of the cowboys riding shotgun to point the way. We got to a turn off about daylight and I was directed onto this road. I sai...

Bent Laminations

04-14-2009 02:23 AM by John | 4 comments »

Hello everyone. Ive been working on my first Morris Chair and I thought I would document some of this. Found the plans from a book “Wood Magazine Arts and Crafts Furniture”. I’m making some changes to the design of the spindles on the sides of the chair but the dimensions are essentially the same. It will be made from walnut I started this project with plans on laminating stock for the legs and discovered the hard way that the glue was bad. I tried Weldwood plastic resin ...

Sewing Center #9

Progress….yadahooty! Got the top on, the hole cut, the lift put in and the doors hung…this will be the last post until I put the finish on. I still have to put the second top on, the one that folds out and covers the open top, but I set it on top so you could see how it will look when it’s done…sort of. I still have about 10% left to do…and you know what they say about that… I didn’t run into any real problems except that the entire thing is not e...

My Rendition of T-Chisels Blanket Chest, Chapter 8

04-13-2009 11:39 AM by FlWoodRat | 2 comments »

Well fellow Jocks and Jockettes, I am slowly approaching the completion of my Granddaughter’s blanket chest. This weekend I managed to cut the lid to size, put a 3/4” round over on the top edges, apply two coats of shellac and numerous coats of General Finishes “Java” and “Georgian Cheery” Gel Coat. I still need to do some touch up work, rub it out and apply 2 or 3 coats of GF poly seal coat. However, before that happens I have to install the hardware...

First segmented bowl

04-13-2009 07:09 AM by Tim Scoville | 11 comments »

I tried doing a segmented bowl using beech and black walnut veneer for accents to give it a brick and mortar look. The beech was cut on my bandsaw at 45 degree angles and stacked. The bandsawn pieces were a good way to maximize the flat but assured that I would have plenty of end grain to cut. I was 98.5% done with the turning when I caught the tool on the edge of the bowl and ripped the bottom segment off, as you can see. I haven’t done it yet but will add an...

Weather Station: The Next Generation #2: Template Solution: Opposite Man

04-13-2009 06:21 AM by newTim | 1 comment »

Some may remember the old Seinfeld episode where George decided his normal way wasn’t working out so he vowed to do everything opposite. While things started going in his favor Elaine’s life became like George’s old life and Seinfeld remained even. Not that that has anything to do with woodworking, I was just looking for something clever. In any event I mentioned in Blog 1 that in the original project I was fighting gravity so I decided to remedy the situation by doing th...

question about luan

04-13-2009 05:59 AM by abuck | 2 comments »

I am starting a table saw station and my budget is low. Was at menards and noticed 3/4 luan ply is the same price as 3/4 ac ply and looks a lot better. usually I am not one who cares about looks of tools and extensions of tools (will remedy that as budget grows) but i am wondering if the luan is a valid choice. I have never worked with it so I am hoping someone has.
