I'm still here

04-06-2012 01:25 AM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

I haven’t fallen of the face of the earth but I am behind on the Queen Size bed build. It has become a money pit because of a 5/8” mortising bit that I didn’t own. Then I realized that the throat on the mortising machine is on 6” and the bottom rail is 8” so I ordered a 5/8” mortising chisel. While waiting for it to get here I dry fit the head board and low and behold a queen size bed is more than 6’ wide and by the way that was the longest length of pipe clamp that I owned. So then I shell o...

How I make a "She's 23 year old"

03-25-2012 07:55 PM by Alexey Khasyanov | 5 comments »

Kova в проекте понаписал чего-то по-испански))). Я ничего не понял, но по догадкам, вроде бы спрашивает как делал. Делал вот так: Думаю, довольно доходчиво и понятно. Удачи. Алексей.

Planner marathon or Saw dust-a-palooza

03-24-2012 12:20 AM by T. D. Reid | 2 comments »

The last three days I have been doing nothing but running the planner and joiner creating eight 30 gallon bags of saw dust and I still have another days’ worth left. The big question is what to do with all of that saw dust? My father told me to ask the high school baseball coach if he wants it. I guess that they used to put it on the in-field to absorb the water after it rained. I will let you know what I find out because I know that we all have problems getting rid of saw dust. I have 95% of...

From ball to the star inside dodecahedron #1: First half

03-21-2012 01:13 AM by Yuri | 6 comments »

I start this project without making proper calculation and drawing. I just made a quick sketch based on my previous ball project calculations. Sure enough, I had to redo first three holes and star vertices because the base of the star was suppose to be a nice small dodecahedron and it didn’t turn up the way I wanted. The base of the star should look good because star will be moving free inside and all cuts and mistakes will be quite noticeable. So, here are the pictures of the first 6 s...

Mission Style Bed #1: Bed Posts Pt. 1

03-20-2012 08:21 PM by Fraser Gandy | 9 comments »

So, I’ve started the bed and its been going pretty good so far. I had all the stock that i had already bought (still need to find a few pieces and pick up the hardward, however its not Really needed until the end, so im not worried about it) resting in the shop for about 10 days which is good! The wood im using for the this project is Poplar, its easy enough to work with, it stains up beautifully, and was readily available and on the lower end of the price market. Onto the woodworkin...

Out of the Gate

03-19-2012 05:49 PM by T. D. Reid | 2 comments »

Without haste I have started the Queen size Arts and Craft style bed that I promised my wife. I am using the plans from American Furniture Design http://www.americanfurnituredsgn.com/arts_and_crafts.htm and I plan to follow it up with the night stands and dressers. I guess a review of their plans will follow this build in a couple of weeks. Until mine is built here is a picture of the bed from the web site of what it is supposed to look like. I had purchased the wood for this build back in th...
