Kitchen Tower #2: The Build

02-13-2010 12:53 AM by Morton | 1 comment »

I’ve completed my son’s Christmas present (ok, awhile ago!), which is a really cool “tower” that he can climb up into to see everything happening on the kitchen counter, and be involved himself. In the previous post on this topic, I went over the design phase and initial template-building. At that point, I was ready to start cutting up some plywood! I had on hand some pretty nice 3/4 plywood from the local supply store. Nothing fancy, but both sides are smooth...

Learning to Cut Dovetails by hand

02-13-2010 12:40 AM by Scottwpaul02 | 1 comment »

Hey all, First of all I wanted to thank all of you guys and gals that have commented and given me hints or inspiration on my projects. I have loved woodworking my entire life, but only recently have I started to pursue it more diligently. My first goal was to learn how to cut dovetails by hand. I know it is a random goal, but I figured that the tools involved to get started…and the skill required would give me a good foundation or starting block to other things. So my first sto...

Repairing Moms Chair #1: New arms for an Old Chair

02-12-2010 11:30 PM by RickRogers7 | 1 comment »

Repairing Mom (in laws’s) chair. The old arms were a little weather beaten so I decided to make some new ones.The chair has sentimental value, it was her son who passed away. She had asked me to tighten up the bolts and put on a fresh coat of paint. I’ve taken it a little farther than that and complete disassembled the chair so I can do some repair work. These are the old ones, held together with a loose dowel and pocket screw. The new ones will be mortise and tenon St...

Kitchen Lazy Susan cabinets #1: upper corner kitchen cabinet dry fit with some work to be done

02-12-2010 08:47 PM by HarleySoftailDeuce | 10 comments »

I’ve been slow in building my kitchen cabinets, but I’ve made some progress. This blog is a few photos of the upper corner cabinet. I’ve bought and read many wood working books; each seemingly leaving me with questions or concerns, so I just kind of did this on my own. So far…so good. I’m an advocate of 3/4” plywood for all cabinets. I know it’s overbuilt, but they will last, and not fail in any way. No special strips needed to mount; just a level sil...

DICE - using up scraps

02-12-2010 04:24 PM by Maclegno | 12 comments »

Yet another way to use up scraps; this pair is made from Beech with Mahogany inlays. Those who have had the benefit of a misspent youth will note that the smaller die is a Right-handed one while the larger die (3”) is a Left-handed one. These don’t roll under the furniture so easily... . ....

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #3: Preparing Lamination Strips

02-12-2010 07:44 AM by sras | 9 comments »

There are three curved parts in each stool. These are formed by gluing up thin strips to create a thicker laminated part. The three parts are: 1. Seat Back – 7/8” thick (formed with 5 or 6 strips)2. Back Rest – 7/8” thick (formed with 5 or 6 strips)3. Slats – 3/8” thick (formed with 3 or 4 strips) (5 per stool) As I plan the construction, I start to realize that I have 6 stools with 7 curved parts each. That works out to 42 glue ups. Each one requires...

Pen Making Video (from a 5 year old's point of view)

02-12-2010 07:42 AM by tooldad | 19 comments »

I have been making project and safety videos as makeups for my students. My son, Turner, wants to get in on the fun. He actually turns most of the pen. He has helped me with about half a dozen pens or so. He even wants a lathe for Christmas this year! Now that makes a shop teacher dad proud! See below for updated link if you cannot view this one.

Work bench #1: Preparing and gluing the top.

02-12-2010 07:41 AM by Dean10 | 11 comments »

Right now I’m making a bench for woodworking this summer. Ive started with the top. To begin, I salvaged wood from my schools old gym floor (Hard rock maple, absolutely freeee, because i have friends in high places :D), next, i took out all the nails and trimmed up the end grain. Then my instructure helped me rip off the grove and tongue joints from the flooring, and I planed it to nice looking peices of lumber. Tonight me and him glued up 1 of 3 segments of the table, which i’ll ...
