Entertainment Center #5: Moving On - Mortise and Tenon

06-27-2007 01:54 AM by Dano | 8 comments »

Well, it is time to move on, I have cut the legs and the mortises in them. I used 1/4 inch wide mortises for 3/4 inch wide stock but almost wish I’d used 3/8 inch wide ones. I’d appriciate it if everyone would chime in here and tell me what width they typically use. Here is a pic, I glued them up out of 4/4 stock and then milled to size, the color match could have been better though. Moving on to the tenons I was concerned that the Forrest WWII blade would not give good res...

Just a question.

06-26-2007 06:11 PM by rudedog552 | 0 comments »

I have a question for anyone that may know the answer. Years ago I worked in a millwork shop that had an overhead hand crank saw that was chain driven. It had a 16 inch blade. Would anyone know what the name of it is, or where I could find one? Thanks.

"Wood Tales From Beyth ha-`Emeq" --by RusticWoodArt #1: "Reverend Wood"

06-26-2007 03:54 PM by frank | 8 comments »

Reverend Wood ....out in the outbacks of waundering o’er hill and dale, through forest woods of glee-full smells, i went past a place of timely shuttered veil, till my first thought was to cast open and lighten this place of experienced abundant wells…. —-”i am the gripper of all you’ll ever get from me”, said this one who veiled their shuttered expressions in claustrophobic pieces of timber, and with that remark the ‘gripper’ closed the door...

Weekend Work

06-26-2007 03:52 PM by che | 8 comments »

House Update: This weekend my mother in law visited on the weekend and some good friends visited Sunday and Monday night. As a result I didn’t get a lot of wood working done, but had a great time with the various guests. I did finish routing and pre-sanding the base boards for the family room. The house we are fixing up is a 1900 row home and has real brick walls with plaster (in most cases). The plaster stops short of the floors by 6” or so. They left this space to run electrical wires etc. ...

Lumber Making #1: A "Mini" Series - up to present

06-26-2007 07:10 AM by Dorje | 19 comments »

I’m posting these pictures as a means to get bloggin’…and, because I’m interested in milling and drying lumber (on a scale that I can accommodate – in the backyard). I’m also brand new at it, so it’s just fun to share! I would have liked to have photos or video of this ‘small time’ sawing in the backyard, but wasn’t quite there yet! Inspired by Bob’s forum topic post the other day on the craigslist cherry crotchwood, I took some pics of some crotchwood I cut in April… A couple p...

Rough Weekend but Quickly Catching Up...

06-26-2007 03:31 AM by RobH | 3 comments »

Well, I did not get much done this weekend. My wife had things to do on Saturday morning so I was on kid duty. The afternoon was a little better, but not totally. We had dinner quests Saturday night and a lot of the afternoon was spent getting ready. Dinner was good, and company left. I called my dad and was talking when I noticed it. I was looking at the eight pieces of plywood that would be the sides of the bookshelves. All of the dados for the fixed shelves had been routed. I had...

Entertainment Center #4: Ouch, the Verdict

06-26-2007 01:49 AM by Dano | 10 comments »

Well, I have been going through my head trying to figure out what I did wrong. I checked to see if the bit might have ridden up, it didn’t. So I did some thinking, I had routed a grove down the center and decided to widen the slot so I moved the fence toward the bit. Now that I think about it I think that meant that I was routing the workpiece with the bit traveling in the same direction, hence, the launch! I think they call this a trapped cut, is that your take on it too? I guess after...
