River Red Gum Coffee Table #2: Levelling table top and making legs

07-27-2013 09:35 AM by icemanhank | 1 comment »

Hi again, It’s been a while as I have been away but here is my progress on the table. I have levelled the tabletop using a large belt sander and a straight edge, quite a time consuming job but I think the end result was worth the time. Then I hit it with an orbital sander using a few different grades of paper. Here is a pic after the first coat of Weatherfast Polyclear boat varnish, I decided not to fill the many holes as I want it to look as natural as possible. The varnis...

New to the hobby, a look inside the beginners mind. #1: the first few tools in the shop

01-05-2008 11:58 PM by Jason Wheeler | 6 comments »

I have to say setting up a wood shop is just as much work and cash, if not more, then setting up a steel shop. Luckily a few of the steel tools are useful and will come in handy to the wood shop. I have also a few tools from a set of cedar drafting drawers I built oh, 5 years back. It was a one time thing and at the time living in an apartment, dust was every where. All I really had was a Dewalt biscuit joiner and a random orbital sander, that was it. A pic of the cedar drawers, mmmm they ...

Built in E-center, Yala #3: It is finished!

12-03-2011 03:13 PM by topcat | 3 comments »

I haven’t done one of these in a while. The build was a bit excruciating. Took 6 days, about 10-12 hrs. per day. Started on the Thurs. before Thanksgiving. That was an easy day. I just ran around getting all of the materials together and did some initial layout work and rough cut the plywood sides. These were full height and were too awkward to move around, so I used a straight edge and my new PC 8902 router to get the edges of the plywood ready for the face frames. Once the first side ...

20 Steps to a Checker Board... a beginners guide

10-17-2009 04:57 AM by Demowen | 7 comments »

I am currently finishing an education class so that I can teach Technology Education (shop class). My last assignment was to create a project that checks for the understanding of the previous lessons. I chose to do my lessons on shop tool safety and usage so it only fits to do a project to show off those new safety skills. I know you all are experts here ;) so I thought you might enjoy picking this apart! I created a simple project that uses the majority of common shop power tools. Her...

Spalted Maple Sofa Table #3: Cutting to size

09-19-2011 05:59 PM by superstretch | 5 comments »

TopOnce I had the top glued up, I realized I really should have used some biscuits to align everything. I had some serious steps between the boards and some very visible glue lines. I made a quick cross cut sled (in about 5 minutes) and was able to trim the ends of the top. I double checked with both a combo square and my framers square and both were dead on 90s. I really needed to sand the tabletop down. The vigorous scraping had left the top surface feeling very uneven. My brothe...
