Spring clamping or something like that...

07-14-2010 05:49 AM by ocwoodworker | 4 comments »

I read an article awhile ago in Popular Woodworking on the advantages of creating a small camber in the wood to create a tighter joint when pressing several boards together to create a table top. The edges touch first then the middle comes together last during clamping. Anyone had any success with that. I am planning on making a walnut side table and would appreciate any tips. Thanx

Mikros Kosmos #9: The sawmill is up and running....

07-14-2010 05:09 AM by tyskkvinna | 13 comments »

I got a very pleasant surprise today! I do not know if the person who sent it wants to be ID’d or not – but thank you. :) These pieces were all planed to 1/8” and had a destiny waiting for them… Halfway there. Can you guess? In addition to the wood I received today (I did not cut it all!!) I also used a few pieces of 1/8” exotic I had, which was waiting for just this project. Thought you’d get a kick out of this. I’m sure you all are...

New Workshop #2: Ready to pour

07-14-2010 04:39 AM by jcwalleye | 2 comments »

Not much to show as concrete is slow to take shape, or at least it seems to me. The builder Steve B got on the job today after spending a week floating Idaho’s Salmon, the River of No Return. I didn’t know it but the Salmon river gorge is deeper than the Grand Canyon. I’m going to have to see that. We’re ready to pour concrete and that will happen sometime this week, Friday at the latest. Here’s a few pictures of the Pex tubing attached to the wire mesh. ...

Wisconsin Running W Inlay #1: Making the template

07-14-2010 04:16 AM by ChunkyC | 1 comment »

Note: All of the pictures are clickable that will load a larger file for easier viewing. A fellow engineer and friend at work wants me to make him a lid for his 20 gallon pickle crock. The plan is to make the top out of walnut sense I have a few bf laying around. :D Then from there, I got the idea of maybe trying my hand at some inlay work. It’s a nice big area and with the dark wood of the walnut I figured it would make an excellent contrasting wood. So I ran the idea of doin...

Chairmaking at the Appalachian Center for Craft #3: Day 3

07-14-2010 03:52 AM by doorslammer | 1 comment »

This morning we started by gluing up a bent lamination that will become our chair backs. What a mess! It’s funny how well yellow glue acts as a lubricant until it dries. All those layers really wanted to squirt loose until the clamping pressure was equal. After that it was more work on roughing out the front legs and front rail and cutting all the mortises using the Festool Domino. The remainder of the day I spent cutting the decorative curves out of all the rail pi...

New Workshop #1: Moving Everything

07-14-2010 02:18 AM by GA_woodworker | 3 comments »

Well, I have been out of the loop for awhile. Once summer ended, my wife and I decided it was finally time to move. We were in a great situation in that we have been renting for a number of years, and with the current real estate market we got a great 5 bedroom, 3 bath house with a full basement on a short sale. So, for those who have looked at my profile and my shop, to say it was a little crowded was an understatement. The shop was ok, until my grandfather passed away. He had a s...
