Walnut slab leftovers? #2: Making a top, and other parts...

12-14-2015 03:33 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, when last seen, the top was sitting in a bunch of clamps…... Got rid of the clamps today. Underside of the top needed some work… This was after hitting the blank with a cambered jack plane, going straight across the grain. Used the #4 to finesse the flat spots. Even tried the #4 on some end grain.. wasn’t too worried bout the ends at the corners. had something in mind for them. Used another “Dose Cap) to draw curves at all four corners. Then ov...

Walnut slab leftovers? #1: What to do?

12-13-2015 02:53 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, after that last project was done, I still had a chunk leftover.. Not the greatest looking, but maybe i can make…something out of it? tried a few tricks to use what tools i had, just to resaw the plank to two thinner boards… “Plan” was to run the circular saw down all four edges. Needed to joint this edge a bit. Set up a fence on the saw….and tried my luck.. Not the best cut I’ve ever done…the other edge was almost as good/badR...

Toy building #4: The Concrete Pump basic truck

12-07-2015 03:41 PM by johnstoneb | 6 comments »

About the end of August I decided I had better get started on building something or would have nothing for Christmas. I started the layout and cutting material for the build. I had resawed a bunch of maple for drawers on my toolbox build so had quite a bit of maple about 5/16 thick that I planed down to 1/4” and cut up some walnut. I was just getting ready to start glueup when a friend called and wanted to know if I wanted to run the Main Salmon. That was a no brainer of course I wa...

A quick tour of my shop.

12-06-2015 07:31 PM by CharlieK | 15 comments »

I have been meaning to do a shop tour video for some time, but never quite got around to it. Then I met a young photographer named Michael DeVowe. Michael graciously came over to my house and filmed this for me. I have received “feedback” in the past about too many “um’s and ah’s” in my presentation. After Michael gave me the completed video I went back and did some post editing and cut out most of the um’s and ah’s. Let me know how you ...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #5: Second Glue Up and Wedged Tenons

12-03-2015 04:19 AM by JimYoung | 5 comments »

The second part of the leg glue up is pretty complicated. Luckily, my Father In-Law was in town for the holidays and he gave me a hand getting all the parts in place. For the through tenons, I used a small amount of glue on the faces of the tenons to minimize squeeze out. Once the legs and “window frame” pieces were all clamped up, I taped off around the mortises. I then forced glue into the top and bottom of the mortise before driving the walnut wedges in place. Removi...

Butterfly Dining Table #6: Vacuum Press Veneering and Shop Sawn Veneer

11-30-2015 10:37 PM by Guy Dunlap | 7 comments »

This time I’m starting to make the top for the table. Since it’s going to have a solid wood frame around it, I need to use veneered panels. I show how to make shop sawn veneer and get it ready for veneering. Then I show how I glue it to the substrate, and how to use the vacuum bag to press it to the substrate. I had a lot of fun doing this as it is a new process for me. If you would like to learn more about the vacuum bag veneering process, I recommend going to Andy Pitts’...

A book Shelf Like No Other - A Floating Book with a Hidden Compartment

11-30-2015 05:22 AM by Mike | 3 comments »

I was in need of a little shelf to hold an alarm clock in my guest room. I decided to make one out of an old book. The difference between this and other floating books that are out there is that this one has a hidden compartment built inside! I’ve included the build video if you’re interested in making one yourself. View on YouTube

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #62: Bedside Tables Finished

11-27-2015 09:49 PM by PhilBello | 4 comments »

Having previously varnished the units to match the bed, I started early today, the first job was preparing the drawer fronts, I decided that because they are recessed it would not have looked right, to route the edges, I sanded them up to 320 grit, then drilled and fitted the handle screws in place. They then had a coat of varnish, and were left to dry. I made some stops, out of scrap mahogany to stop the drawers coming all the way out, they are just held to the back of each drawer by a si...

Inlay card table refurbish #2: So far, so good

11-25-2015 03:02 PM by peterrum | 1 comment »

The curled bits of inlay were carefully removed from the table and put aside. Then I used some water and a steam iron to heat the vacant areas and remove the old glue from the plywood base. I also used the same technique to remove the old glue from the removed inlay pieces. Then I used the steam iron again to steam the individual pieces of inlay an pressed them between two pieces of plywood to get them flat again. This worked quite well. Some of the inlay was so bad I had to replace it s...
