Starting Upper Cut Woodworks #13: Thomas Walnut Dresser - Major Updates

03-29-2010 06:59 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 3 comments »

I haven’t cross-posted the links from my blog here in over a month, sorry about that. I’ve made some major progress in that time, here you go! The base pieces are ready to rock! I built a gigantic crosscut sled I call The Beastmaster The webframes are done! They were complicated because of asymmetrical drawer sizes. I posted a project update after missing my delivery date. The customer is OK with the schedule change so far. The thin strips for trimming out the Walnu...

Getting ready

03-29-2010 06:23 AM by sawblade1 | 0 comments »

This week was a very different week for me, foul weather kept me from photographing projects until Wednesday so building accessories for my chairs became a priority, that’s when I come to realize I definitely need more windows in my shop however they require being creative unless I want to cut into the studs in the wall, in which I do not desire to do so, so this week will be dedicated to finishing off two Adirondack chairs for a co-worker and ordering more supplies along with coming...

Not quite in the workshop... #7: Painfully busy weekend, very little (read NO) shop time...

It hurts to type right now. Why, oh why didn’t I just hire a contractor? Oh yeah, I wanted the job done right. Gotcha… So anyway, I don’t even recall, did I regale you with tales of insulation following me home from Home Depot? Well that is as good of a place as any to start. So here goes… After yet another punishing electric bill, we decided that we were going to go to HD and pick up some Owens Corning R30 unfaced rolls. I figured at the price I had seen before,...

Baby Crib #4: Stairway to heaven

03-29-2010 04:09 AM by MDeSchepper | 1 comment »

Was able to get quite a bit accomplished despite a major setback. Back on my 1st blog I showed how I was working from some plans I purchased which offered full size templates for the legs. I have learned a very valuable lesson from this and to my fellow LJ’s I hope you learn one as well. DOUBLE CHECK THE DIMENSIONS! Found out the “full size” templates were not exactly to scale. The legs I cut on the band saw were about 2 1/2” shorter than they should have been. A...

Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #2: Lofting Pt. 1

03-29-2010 03:08 AM by kharder | 4 comments »

I started the process of lofting, drawing the 3D shape hull from front top and side views, based on the measurements from the plans using a scale of 2” = 1’. I have followed the same process that is required for a full size hull, but my scale will result in a hull 21” long and 8” wide. To create the full sized enlargement of the lines of the hull, the plans list points along the various curves which are carefully laid out on a grid and connected with long flexible ...

Here it is unclamped. It is amazingly within a 1/32 inch roundness. Good enough.
