Wall Cabinet #1: Door Progress

04-02-2007 04:38 AM by cheller | 2 comments »

I didn’t have much time in the shop this weekend. We’re getting ready for our Passover seder and my college softball team had a double header today, and I couldn’t resist spending a little time in the sun. In the shop I worked on the sizing the strips which will hold the panels in the doors of the wall cabinet (see project posting). The doors have a rabbet that runs around the inside of the door to hold the panel. To hold the panel from the back I’m using strips...

Thorsen Challenge #2: Cutting and Dryfitting

04-02-2007 03:41 AM by shack | 1 comment »

Well I finished running my wood thru my planer yeasterday and started glueing it up. I have enough material ready to make about 3 or 4 of these tables. Today I started cutting out the pieces and glueing up some more stock. I was able to dry fit the base for one table. I thought I had figured out how I was gonna dress them up. But as I was working several Ideals came to me so I have not decided which way I will use. I may do more than one and emblish them differently. Tomorrow I will try...

Handplane Restoration #7: Stanley Bailey #3 Type 10 before

04-02-2007 02:07 AM by WayneC | 3 comments »

This is a Stanley Bailey #3 Type 10 Bench Plane that I picked up a few weeks back at a local antique street sale. It was better than the one that I had set aside to restore. (I’ll save the other one for Obi if he wants it) The purchase price for this plane was $20. The first step in the restoration process is to determine the type of the plane and condition of the plane. To do this I looked up the plane using the stanley bench plane dating page. using information from the plane. ...

"Rites of a Debarking in Process" --by RusticWoodArt

04-01-2007 06:14 PM by frank | 4 comments »

”Rites of a Debarking in Process” And so on Saturday in the afternoon, I headed back out into the woods to get busy on some debarking of wood that has been sitting out, during the seasons, over the past 1-3 years. On some of the larger logs, I will usually let them sit, for sometimes up to three years out in the fields and forest, developing character and drying out before starting to work on them. Smaller pieces will range in time from 1-2 years and these are the ones I get...

'This Old Crack House' #25: helecopters....TV crews and....

04-01-2007 02:05 PM by Dusty | 15 comments »

After the murder of her fiancée, the traffic from the drug dealing that had occurred across the street seemed to stop. Her mother, who frequently took care of her kids, had moved into the basement of the house. Another woman and her two children also moved in. From time-to-time, the mother would be sitting out front watching the younger children and would respond if you initiated the conversation. There was no doubt that she was a special-needs adult. She seemed to be mildly retarde...

As promised here they are: First is a picture of the rough sawn cherry wood that I cut select sections from. Next, the WoodMaster turns the rough sawn wood to something of beauty: I checked the downloaded plans as I contemplate the direction of the changes that I will make to it: I cut the legs: Days later I tried a few design options for the legs, but opted to keep it simple: Last but not least, the table top boards are glued up:

Bass Bully's Router Table #3: Applying Formica Laminate to Substrate

04-01-2007 08:30 AM by BassBully | 6 comments »

After completing the substrate, it was time to adhere the formica veneer to the substrate. The method used to apply formica to the substrate can also be used for applying formica to particle board to make kitchen counter tops. The only difference is that kitchen counter tops will typically have edging applied to them which I am not going to discuss here. Contact cement stinks – Ventilate! Before I cemented the two surfaces together, I cut the formica to a size larger than the subs...

This woodworker walks into a bar and says...

04-01-2007 04:34 AM by Chip | 11 comments »

Ok, time for my weekly blog entry. I was thinking the other day that I don’t know a single woodworking joke. I’m one of those people that usually forgets a joke the day after I hear it, trys to tell it, and totally botches it up. I tried over the last couple of days and I can’t recollect a single woodworking one. I’m sure they are out there. So, all you woodwworking, sawdust making folks… let’s hear ‘em… (now, back to the basketball games)
