Today we have ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1540: Carousel Canopy and Stands for the Figures

04-23-2015 11:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I have never been really 'fast' when I am creating a new design. Whether it is the process of making one of my own creations or following the instructions of someone else, things just seem to take me a long time. Often people mention how quickly I produce new projects, and I find that rather odd. It seems that more times than not, I take quite a bit longer than I anticipate to complete anything that I am working on. I think that I can attribute the illusion of me working so quickly wi...

Farmhouse Table w_Buffet #4: Buffet Framework

04-23-2015 03:28 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 13 comments »

Simple enough here, right? Duplicate the look and feel of the aprons on the Farmhouse Table, but at the size and scale suited to a buffet with drawers. Whereas the table needed 2×4s for apron material, a buffet needs more height for drawers but less width of stock overall. I took the biggest clue from the squared-off stock at the top of the turned legs; it was that dimension setting the height of the casework and nothing else. So with a 3/4” undercap taken into account, I ne...

Tool Cabinet Build #19: Starting On The Box Doors.. Plus Bonus Dovetail Tool Mod

04-23-2015 02:58 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

This week has been all about getting the door frames dovetailed together for the box style front doors on this cabinet. This was a nice task to finally finish as it gives me a final dimension for the cabinet to see and start planning the base for. More on that to come but first the doors.. A couple weeks ago while finishing up the tambours I went ahead and ripped and cut to length the wall panels for the doors. So with those sitting around already all that was left was to get ...

Stanley 60 1/2 block plane restore

04-23-2015 02:40 AM by MNclone | 1 comment »

Came across a 60 1/2 block plane at a garage sale last summer for a couple bucks. It was in great shape except for the massive cracks on both sides of the mouth. So I picked up some crusty 60 1/2 parts on eBay to make a complete plane. The japanning was pretty much gone on the replacement cap and body, so after some time in electrylosis it got some duplicolor engine enamel. The blade, depth adjuster, knob, and eccentric lever were all taken from the original plane.So here you ha...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #50: Going off at a Tangent!

04-23-2015 01:54 AM by PhilBello | 4 comments »

Not really woodwork related, but this is an update on my Carport build… The tropical storms and high winds are threatening to undo my work, so I made the decision that I would have to build the walls of the carport from concrete block to make sure it was going nowhere. I thought I had put enough support in the original build, but I have witnessed storms over the last few weeks that would test any freestanding structure. So yesterday my supplies arrived in three loads, they had to ...

Lonnie Bird's School #2: Glueing up & practice dovetails

04-23-2015 01:08 AM by kenn | 2 comments »

Day two started with the walk up this path to the shop. After I said how pretty it was, I thought I should prove it with the pictures. Here’s the view from the screened in porch that connects Lonnie’s home and the shop, and our lunch spot. Alright, enough of the tour, get back to work! My next task was to clean up the legs, apron show surfaces and rails with a hand plane. A low angle plane with a 50 degree blade was the recommended tool. Although I brought my Lie-Nielsen...
