Curved Front End Table #4: Fitting Doors, Curved & Veneered Drawer

04-09-2016 10:29 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this video, I cut the curved door panels to size using the bending form I used to create them. Then I cut the veneer for the edge banding, and install it on the doors to give the illusion that they are a solid bent panel. Then install the hinges and hang them. After the doors are hung, I can start working on the curved drawer front. I cut the face of the curve on a large blank and them create the half blind dovetails for the sides. I then veneer the face of the drawer front so that the ...

Cedar Entertainment Unit #1: Sizing and Marking Out

04-02-2016 04:39 AM by icemanhank | 0 comments »

Hi all I have purchased some beautiful Red Cedar and am going to try my hand at some larger joinery work. It is really lovely timber and was a very good price as the timber yard sadly is closing. This was a bundelled mixture of boards and pieces; The main piece for the top of the unit The larger boards I have cut in half and put through the thicknesser to get some lovely bookmatched boards to work with; I have sized four pieces for the legs and marked out the sha...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #73: Scrapwood Challenge!

03-26-2016 04:01 PM by PhilBello | 5 comments »

This morning I started out with this mahogany scrap: From which I had decided to try and make two mallets, why I hadn’t made them before I don’t know, I have tried everywhere to buy one down here, they just don’t sell them, they use their hammer, so I had imported a beech one from Amazon, which including taxes cost me $34 / £24, twice the listed price. I started off by cutting the handles on the bandsaw, as this would determine the size of the holes in the heads. ...

Curved Front End Table #3: Internal Shelf, Divider and Glue Up

03-26-2016 12:29 PM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

Now that I know the thickness of the doors, I can start working on the internal structure of the piece. I have to account for being able to put the lower shelf and divider for the drawer being put into the piece after glue up, so I have to do some unconventional things to get it to work. After I get those made, I taper the legs and do the initial glue up. Then I modify my bending jig to make the cut to separate the curved front into two doors. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...

Plant stand #5: Corbels and bow-ties

03-23-2016 02:48 PM by BJODay | 1 comment »

Time to cover my mistakes with corbels. I cut the tenons first. It is easier to hold onto a longer workpiece. Below I’ve laid out the desired curves. Here is how they are cut out on the band saw. Here is how the will be positioned. The pieces are too small to try to use a pattern and flush bit on the router table. So I use a drum sander kit on the drill press. This worked better and faster than I expected. Here is a quick look at how the upper corbels will be positioned....

Workshop #5: Added a bandsaw today!

03-22-2016 04:12 AM by Matt | 0 comments »

Sorry, no pics yet… BUT! I picked up a 12” bandsaw today! So happy about this! I’ve got some QSWO waiting to be resawn for a box project. It is an older Craftsman model. Not the best, but it has a decent motor at 1-1/3 HP. It took a little time to get tuned up, but not too bad. It does need some new thrust bearings, which I found on EBAY (no longer made). The existing ones are solidly bound up. The tires on it are pretty heavily coated in saw dust and pitch....

Plant stand #4: Arched rails

03-21-2016 07:35 PM by BJODay | 1 comment »

I didn’t want straight rails. Here I’ve drawn an arch on the rails. I then cut the waste off on a band saw. I cut close but not up to the line. In the picture above are the rough cut rails. I have a pattern I used on an earlier project. I saved it and I’m glad I did because it’s perfect for this table. I made it from 1/4” masonite. Some people use double sided tape to hold the pattern to the piece. I used 3 small screws. Below I have a pattern or flush-...

Blog #1

03-17-2016 01:28 PM by MatthewTruax | 1 comment »

With this being my first blog, I’ll start by saying that my name is Matthew Truax. I’m currently serving the Army, and I live in the Midwest. Of course, being in the Army and having a wood shop has proven to be difficult as I’m currently well over my household goods weight limit. I’m trying to mitigate that by getting rid of what I don’t need and building multi tool stations in the shop to alleviate space issues as well. My shop currently resides in a two car ...
