Princess Daybed for Daughter #5: Cutting Curves and Dresser Delays

07-15-2018 12:31 PM by JohnMcClure | 0 comments »

Progress has been slow lately, because of other demands on my time. All I’ve done for the bed the last few days is cut out the curved rails on the bandsaw, and rough-cut the tenons. The short rails have a pretty aggressive curve, so I needed wider than 1×6 stock. I ended up jointing and gluing two 1×6s to make a wide enough board, then making a lot of funny-shaped scraps.Today I hope to fit the tenons to their mortises, then cut grooves for the panels in the rails, then cut ou...

The She Shop #1: The beginning

07-15-2018 01:50 AM by rhybeka | 12 comments »

It was decided that I was to move my shop out of the two car garage and into a structure in the yard. It was debated and discussed, and finally this past week it was built. It’s not large by any standard, just 12×16. I hired a local amish company to build it just short of siding it since I work a full time desk job and time is not on my side. I wanted to use Hardieplank (that’s another story). The walls are ~7’2” with 4’ lofts on either side. I have batts...

Legacy Maverick 3x5 Gen. II #25: Prototype for a potential customer . . .

07-15-2018 12:39 AM by copythat | 5 comments »

I messed with Aspire today and converted a local company’s logo into a small (12”x6”) prototype of a potential sign. This is right after carving . . . with sanding yet to be done! I also need to add gold to the crown, blue to the downturned arrow, red to the upturned arrow and flame, and white to the snowflake and small letters. I think it turned out pretty interesting so far.

From wood butchery to wood workery #4: My first attempt at a tutorial - half lap miter joinery

07-14-2018 10:21 PM by Woodbutchery | 2 comments »

While working on another project, I needed to re-familiarize myself with working with my half-lap miter sled. While doing that, I realized I need to make something more stable than what I had originally come up with. The new sled was made out of a piece of mahogany plywood. The board was 26” x 10”. I ripped two strips along the length, each 1 1/2” wide, glued the strips together for the fence, and glued and screwed the fence to the board. I used my square to get th...

I'm still here..

07-14-2018 09:08 AM by darkmyble | 6 comments »

Hi folks.. it’s been a while i know so this is just a heads up as to what is going on. I’ve been given a shed!! In comparison to my previous work space it’s a veritable stadium! Its a 10’ x 8’ shed, log lap, double door with a good size glass panelled window down one side. The retail price of this shed new is £700 ($926/€791) to get it disassembled required some minor damage but easily repaired or replaced, and with some other parts that needed replacing total...

Chest of Pine Drawers #8: Clamps are off, top is on...

07-13-2018 03:41 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

And the supply of lumber is gone….for now. Took the forest of clamps off, and stashed them out of the way, for now.. Pipe clamps…..may almost have enough, for now.. About half of the other clamps….the “F” style are all hanging up. Cleared the top of the bench. Had to look over both faces of the top panel….trying to decide on which would look better….then set the “good side” down onto the bench. Needed to add the corner bloc...

Toy Construction #215: Hi Track Dozer It's time to make the blade

07-12-2018 07:19 PM by htl | 8 comments »

There’s some very interesting table saw set ups to get this done.You may have noticed two different woods being used but half way through I saw That I wanted walnut tips so cut out the maple and then glued on so walnut.I don’t back up very often but knew this would look ten times nicer. [I don’t have much walnut]I take just a half turn of the height adjustment at a time and even less on the last pass going very slowly to cut down on saw marks, that will needed to be sanded o...
