Hey everyone, I have just redesigned Oregonburls.com would like to offer an artist page. I know that it is expensive to get your art into galleries that charge up to 40% of the sales price and ebay up to 25%+. Oregonburls.com is an advertised site. This page (Artist Corner) would allow you to sell your wood creations with just a flat fee of 10% of the sale price.You would keep your item and when it sells I print the shipping label and email it to you along with sending you a check or pa...
Its been a while since I’ve posted anything project-related. My time has been consumed with work-work and not wood work. So my wife has this table which she moved into the house when we got married. I can’t stand the thing and it is constantly being bumped, knocked over, and hit into the wall. Its ugly, veneered, and flimsy so I’ve tried everything short of burning it to get it out of there. Finally my wife told me to make something to replace it or get lost. My...
In this post today I wanted to go over the materials and methods I used for constructing my benchtops for the new workbench.Each benchtop is an identical lamination of 4 layers. In my original design, the top was 3 layers thick (each about 3/4 inch thick). However once I completed that part of it I realized that the bench wasn’t going to be heavy enough. The material I was using at that point was all aspen and pine, with red oak trim. I noticed that the density of SYP (southern yellow p...
Ok, I’ve been working on this for about 18 months. A little here and a little there… a piece at a time. It’s finally finished and now I can move on to making instruments. I never built a bench, or anything else – unless you consider that bowl I turned in wood shop 45 years ago? – so there was some learning curve involved. I never: made box joints or drawers, glued up a top, made and installed mortise & tenon’s, installed a vice – let alone two ...
Fellow LJ’s:I’ve been shopping the net for a biscuit joiner…and need your input. Here’s what I’ve learned so far: - Porter-Cable has the best handle and power switch arrangement, not to mention top quality – and the price to go with it. It’s probably the top of the list (except Festool’s REALLY high-end thang!) - DeWalt is almost the same tool except the t-handle isn’t on the fence, it’s on the motor. But the fence, motor, switch and price are about the same as PC. - ...
Building a stable for my Church’s Nativity from recycled poplar beams. The beams came from the Church’s restoration in 2007 ( FOR RIVER GIRL: This Nativity Stable is in a Church next door to the GRC Memoral.)
I have far too many DVDs and not enough places to put them so I decided to build a DVD cabinet. My design is based on a desire to make a large dovetailed cabinet and the fact that I have a bunch of left over wenge, padauk and a 1/2 sheet of bird’s eye maple plywood. I am not a sophisticated draftsman and use Microsoft PowerPoint to get the basic proportions right. In my first session: 1. Mocked up drawer using shop scraps2. Glued up panels3. Flattened one side using plane...
timing is everything I guess.. I had just finished loading this bookcase up a week ago… It’s contemporary in design, simple joinery.biscuts and rabbits, all solid white oak, with 1/4” oak sheet backing. It’s 8’ wide, floor to ceiling, fitted between walls in out loft office.This is my first post, I have the feeling the pics will not work… so the addresses are below.This is my first dive into real woodworking. Done in my basement with a minimum of tools...
The last video on building my workbench. http://youtu.be/n0iY1vvdSCM
I had a table top to glue up this weekend and was looking to build a jig to get better results adding biscuits to align the boards during glue up. I made a mistake on my last set of glue-ups and thought the boards were flush, but when I pulled them out of the clamps they were not even and required a lot of work to flatten. I don’t like extra work and would rather use some common sense. There are a number of jigs on this site and in the trade mags that show how to fix the base of a ...
