Furniture for the house #1: The new computer desk

04-24-2009 12:31 AM by Julian | 1 comment »

I have been waiting for the american elm that I had in the kiln to dry for a couple of months now. All of it has finally been pulled out and is stacked in the shop ready to become my new computer desk, among other things. So far I have the design figured out, and have started with the drawers. I know this is a bit backwards to the norm, but I wanted to get all the handcut dovetails out of the way, since it would take the most time out of any other part of the project. So anyways, I planed ...

shop upgrades #4: Making the delta 6" jointer dust collection ACTUALLY work.

04-24-2009 12:21 AM by Julian | 5 comments »

I have dealt with the sub par dust collection opening of this jointer for over ten years now. Today I went out to the shop and said no longer will I deal with a clogged dust chute, and wood chips all over the shop. All I did to correct the problem was to box out the chute and make it 4” deep all the way to the bottom, then put the chut facing 90 degrees to the chute, which would solve the problem of chips collecting and clogging up the chute. Well, I just ran a ton of boards through the...

Bed Build #2: Head and foot dry setup

04-23-2009 10:32 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I posted making the bedposts. I finally got around to getting some more oak and have been making the head and foot. As you can see it’s made of oak and has three raised panels. I got the idea from Chris Davis, a LJ. He posted a really nice bed with raised panels and it caught my eye. The bed is full size so what you see here is about 52” across. Here is a close up of a few of the rail and stile joints. It’s the second time I’ve done this...

The WoodWhisperer style cutting boards

04-23-2009 10:09 PM by sasa | 0 comments »

Just a couple pictures of my version of TWW cutting boards. They board is made out of walnut and cherry. I thought I finished sanding it last night and wiped it down with mineral spirits to get the dust off. Some excess glue squeeze-out that I missed while sanding/scraping became apparent after I wiped the board down, so I have to work at it a bit more tonight, then its onto putting the finish. I’ll post pics of the finished board once its done.

Downstairs Built-ins Extravaganza! #6: Inside of drawer case is done.

04-23-2009 07:20 PM by BethMartin | 6 comments »

I put my drawer case together and have the slides in there. There are a couple of spots where the measurements were wonky for some reason, but I got it all squared up where it needs to be squared up. I think I may have cut my dadoes a wee bit too tight, because I had to wrestle with this thing quite a lot. And it is big, so there was some sweating and swearing. I think if I had more experience with this sort of thing, I could’ve planned my assembly attack better, and maybe saved som...

Craftsman Dining Room Set - In The Beginning...

04-23-2009 06:39 PM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

Due to my ignorance with LJ blogging, the next installment is here. So, I’ve got my girlfriend’s permission to start working on our new dining room set. I’ve done a ton of research, and for me, Schroeder hit the nail right on the head. He’s been extremely helpful with suggestions, suggested reading, and tool purchases to make the process go smoother. I will build his table. I’m still researching the chairs, but the Rodel chair is high in the running. I...

Photos are returning slowly...

04-23-2009 06:37 PM by Jon3 | 0 comments »

I’ve migrated what turns out to be 9Gig or so worth of photos over to my new hosting provider, but unfortunately, the new version and old version direct link URLs are incompatible. I’m not terribly surprised, but I was hoping to avoid the manual fixes many of my blog posts will now require. I’m going to try and fix the Roubo series today, but the other ones will likely take longer. So have patience, and the links should resume working eventually!
