The Mountain Feels Like Talking

04-25-2007 05:05 PM by Phil Brown | 5 comments »

Back on the road after five and a half years out of the saddle. Big change. My wife is having a harder time adjusting to the change than I am. I leave at 2:30 in the afternoon and return at 1:30 in the morning. With so much less time in the workshop I find myself having to manage time efficiently and prioritize what is really important to the future of my woodworking business. I was grumbling a bit about having to supplement my income, but a major disaster to the workshop made me thankf...

Thorsen Table Challenge #7: Going for the Top !! Also pegging joints info.

04-25-2007 04:30 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 33 comments »

The last couple of days, I’ve been working on the tabletop. I mortised out the breadboards, & cut the tenons. I kind of fell for the cloud lift theme, so I incorporated into the top. You might want to call this a sideways cloud lift. I decided to try something from the latest issue of Fine Woodworking, They call it draw bored pegging on the breadboards. This is something I’ve never tried before, so we’ll see what happens. Check out my latest Video, hope you ...

"Singing Mallets" --by RusticWoodArt

04-25-2007 12:48 PM by frank | 5 comments »

Singing Mallets ....and so tis in this the moment of my arising, that the spewing forth of motley coloratura comes weaving heavens rhyme, where i am justified a vision quest of inseeing sensationalizing, that comes to me bearing up beyond my scope of cosmic time…. And so I thought that today I would post a couple of photos of some of the mallets that I have made. These are some that I now use and they, like the ones before them, will in likewise manner be retired with new ones to ...

Thorsen table challenge - tease! #5: I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

04-25-2007 12:09 PM by oscorner | 7 comments »

Well everyone I tried to post this a couple of nights ago, but it seems we had some technical difficulties. I’m glad it has been fixed. I cut my dowels to length on the table aprons: Added another cross member to the front and back assemblies: Then setup to drill for the addition of some 1/2” buttons for a decreative element: Had to make my own table top hold downs: And route slots in which to allow for wood movement for the hold downs: Last but not le...

Cabinet Progress #7: Watch Glue Dry

04-24-2007 02:50 AM by gizmodyne | 8 comments »

Under Pressure I don’t know about the rest of you, but glue up stresses me out. Even though we had dry fit the doors, I feel that time crunch as soon as I spread the glue. These doors are only held together by tiny tenons on the left and right beadboard pieces. The process Set out the clamps and separate the breadboard end to expose the tenons. Glue the tenons of the outer beadboard Clamp it Check for square by measuring across the diagonals Apply diagonal pressure if n...

Thorsen Table Challenge #1: It's a start

04-24-2007 01:41 AM by roundabout22 | 5 comments »

The whole reason I joined Lumberjocks was because I wanted to get some information about the Thorsen Table Challenge. After spending countless hours here I decided I better at least attempt a table. SWMBO said that I could only build a table if the wood choice matched the bedroom furniture (The Wife’s Dresser). So sorry Obi, but it is going to be made out of pine. I decided to add some Cedar for a contrasting wood Just to do something different I went with a brick laid patt...

Vroom Vrrrooooom! (race car bed) #1: Aaaaand they're off!

04-23-2007 03:04 PM by Allen | 7 comments »

My son Sam, now 2 ½, is a certified car nut. He has about 200 of them, which he can identify by model and color, and those are just the Hotwheels/Matchbox sized cars. He and I spend hours on the living room rug playing with cars, driving them to various locations on the rug which he has identified as the grocery store, the car wash, the “whippy dip” (does anyone outside of Cincinnati call a dairy bar/soft-serve ice cream place a “whippy dip”?) etc. Anyhow, we were sitting at dinner, my...

"PROVIDERE" --by RusticWoodArt #6: Providere's Leg Update....

04-23-2007 01:21 PM by frank | 5 comments »

Providere’s Leg Update…. ....and then some! Well this past week has been a busy one for me around here. Started out with a storm on Monday and then we lost power, so the sump pump in the cellar went down and the water level went up….up….and up. Time to break out the gasoline pump and start pumping, old connected cape houses (1778), old dug cellars and bad grading can sure be a problem at times in the spring. What with water run off from spring rains and mud seaso...

Thorsen Table contest #3: getting started

04-23-2007 04:05 AM by scottb | 17 comments »

One of my first ideas for this challenge was to make a “green” table – as in recycled, not painted. After weeks of pondering, and ultimately ignoring the problem of where to begin, and more importantly, what to use, I remembered that I had this door sitting in my shed. It may have been original to the house, but has been collecting dust for the past 5 or so years since we bought the house and replaced the exterior doors – this one had dog door cut out of it and was ...
