Changing Table #4: Door & Drawer Fronts

10-09-2008 03:25 AM by Les Hastings | 2 comments »

I finally got all the fronts put together. The drawer fronts have wider side styles to match the styles and rails on the door. All of the have raised panels except fot the one small drawer front at the top of the tower. Its to small for a raised panel so I just made it a flat panel. The panels have a bead running around them to, to go along with the beaded openings. Here’s a close up of the frame and panel. Here’s a couple full view pictures of the project. Al...

The Craftsman's Path #47: THree Pillars of Design - Part 2 Construction

10-09-2008 03:19 AM by Mark Mazzo | 0 comments »

Building on the previous post in this series, it’s time to explore Graham Blackburn’s second pillar of design: Construction. When one thinks of construction in woodworking, the first thought is inevitably joinery. While joinery is definitely one element of the construction of a piece of furniture, as you might expect, there’s more to the equation. Take a look at this post for a discussion of construction as it relates to design, according the Blackburn. Thanks for reading.

like fingernails on a blackboard...

10-08-2008 08:20 PM by StevenAntonucci | 23 comments »

As someone who has been working with wood for 20 years and turning for 12 years, there are a few things that set me off. I’m going to jump up on my soapbox now: 1.) “What lathe is the best?” “What angle is that sharpened to?” “What tools are the best?” “What chuck…” AAAAAAARGH! The answer to all of these questions is “It doesn’t matter.” I think far too many folks are concerned with the brand name, whet...

New (used) Delta Table Saw #2: Here it gotta clean it up.

10-08-2008 05:57 PM by woodchips | 7 comments »

Well I was finally able to go pick the saw up and I’m every bit as excited as I was when I first bought it. I’m going to be doing a bit of work on it before using it. I need to rebuild the right wing extension and I’m going to build a router table into it. I also need to give it a good cleaning inside and lube it with some sort of dry lube (any suggestions?). The cast iron surface has some very minor rust spots that will need to be removed, what would be the best way t...

Tool box for the tool box #1: Intro and Prototype

10-08-2008 04:57 AM by bayspt | 3 comments »

Since my first attempt at this blog seems to have been lost here we go again.A friend of mine saw a pencil box I was working on out of red oak (my first attempt at dovetails) just for practice, and instantly wanted me to make him some stuff. ”We can make this and that for me.” After some discussion we settled upon a Tool Tote for his truck tool box. He is a network IT type guy who sets up networks for business and the like so he often has to carry tools and stuff from his truck ...

Recovery projects #7: Even a beater needs a little attention

10-08-2008 02:39 AM by Betsy | 3 comments »

Just puttering around with sharpening tonight. I found this old beater in a box while looking for something else. Thought I’d give it a little attention. I honestly don’t know what I was using this for that made it in such bad shape—- but, if nothing else, it proves I was at one time working on something! Five minutes working through 80 – 220 grit – got all (OK most) the crud off I prefer to use my waterstones for most of my sharpening &#...
