Desk build #1: Small Oak Nurses Desk

1827 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 1 comment »

My niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, ...

Black walnut pencil post bed

1827 days ago by RnG | 3 comments »

I’m in the middle of this project, using walnut that I helped my dad cut some 30 years ago and has been in a barn drying ever since. I’m making this full size bed for my one twin daughter, as she asked me to do it. This is really my first major furniture project ever and has been quit the learning experience. I’ll post pix ASAP. All pieces are cut and sanded, now I’m going to fill the pores with orange shellac and sanding and then do a French polish finish on the m...

"Art Box" Tutorial #12: Shaping

1843 days ago by Andy | 28 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is the fun part! Its scary too! The idea of taking a nice crisp box, one you have spent countless hours making, and attacking it with a tool designed for slag removal is…well…its a little disturbing. Maybe I was influenced by old Hitchcock movies more than I know. Seriously, what I enjoy is the freedom this gives me. Everything up to this point has been tied to measurements and careful setups. This is where we can cut loose a little. But slow down Hot...

Bandsaw Box Bandit #5: Its all finished except the finish

1845 days ago by Walnut_Weasel | 7 comments »

Well I was finally able to finish my second box yesterday. That is, everything is finished but the finish… I went to Home Depot to get some clear oil, and for some reason the crappy depot here in our small town does not carry it! I knew I should have bought some when I was at Lowes earlier in the week! Oh and I still need to buy flocking for the inside. That is also impossible to find in this small town. I guess it is time to buy it online! I have also noticed that I need to wo...

the humble house workshop #9: one door closes, another opens

1845 days ago by kiwi1969 | 17 comments »

FINALLY!!! after almost 2 years of struggle in the Philippines it has actually happened. The light at the end of the tunnel is not an oncoming train! I found a backer for my business plan and I now have a small furniture company of my own! Thats it behind the red door. The tools are your basic stuff. Planner/thicknesser combo, bandsaw, drill press etc all of it generic chinese, actually very good generic chinese I must say, but thats what the setup budget allows for and it,s not like there,...

Large bench made from the tree that stood in the grounds.

1846 days ago by mreagleeyes | 18 comments »

I am working on yet another piece and thought I’d share me project so far with you guys. The Magnolia ‘Salicifolia’ tree had stood in the grounds of the Inner Temple on London’s Thames for over 80 years but due to a fungus it had to come down. My original plan was to use the timber as a practice piece that I could use my new Arbortech grinder on, however whilst the guys where cutting the tree down the girl in charge of the gardens asked what I would do with the t...

Bandsaw Box Bandit #2: My Second Bandsaw Box - Day 1

1853 days ago by Walnut_Weasel | 3 comments »

Well today I began work on my second bandsaw box. I am going to make a box very similar to the first (see Bandsaw Box Bandit #1) but this time I have a few ideas to overcome some of the problems I encountered while making the first box. However, just 3 cuts in I realized the root cause of one of my problems. I began by cross cutting the board to proper length. Then I made the first arced cut to form the top of the lid. Finally I made a second arced cut to form the bottom of the lid. T...

Looking for project suggestions for an awesome plank of pine

1860 days ago by Durnik150 | 14 comments »

I was in the mountains this weekend and was driving down the highway just outside Estes Park (beautiful drive if you ever get to Colorado). I saw a shop with rustic furniture for sale outside. But what caught my eye were several HUGE planks of wood leaning against the building. I wasn’t sure if they were demo pieces or if he sold them separately. I pulled in to the Pine Cone Furniture woodshop and asked about the planks out front. He said the big ones were on sale for $75 and the lit...
