Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #5: Breadboard Ends

1780 days ago by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

While I’m ammonia fuming another project, I figured I’d make progress on this one. I pulled a WoodWhisperer and threw away the tape measure. I milled the ends to the proper thickness (which also gave me some nice mahogany veneer). I can’t tell you how lovely working mahogany is, compared to oak. Then while the stock was still one long piece, I used the table saw blade to make the dado that fits the tongue on the top (Darrell calls it the “core”). I achieved ...

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #4: Table Top

1781 days ago by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

As I was waiting for another project to dry, I did a little work on the table top. I had cut it oversized on purpose to take advantage of the wavy figure in the board. I then had to face the difficult decision of how to trim it down for a sofa/foyer table that didn’t stick too far out. I settled on a 14” wide board, which leaves plenty of room for a decent overhand in the front, 2 1/4” legs, and a side apron that doesn’t look like a chubby baby’s leg. I the...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #5: Slight Change of Plans

1800 days ago by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

Just a short update. While surfing plans, as I am wont to do, I stumbled across these trestle table plans. I didn’t give much thought to it, as it’s a bit too modern for me, but when I looked at the detailed preview, I saw something quite interesting. The plans include a leaf extension system that will work perfectly with my oversized breadboard ends. This means that I can make a table that seats six and with just a bit more work, seat eight.

Stickley Sideboard #1: Selecting the Plans

1811 days ago by CaptainSkully | 9 comments »

At first, I was enamored with #802, as done so well by Dale I looked it up in Robert Lang’s book “Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture”. I found an article on building it in Woodworking Magazine, Summer 2009 edition. I felt like I had done my homework and thought I might slip this in between the dining table and the chairs. We already have decent chairs. I didn’t really realize it until I saw Stickley Sideboard #818 at the Arts & Crafts Fair in San Fr...

Checkerboard End Grain Cutting Board #2: Putting it together

1869 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 5 comments »

Ok, when I last left you this cutting board was just a Sketchup design. After a trip to the hard wood dealer and some basic milling I arrived at this very hefty glue up. I tried to do the ripping on my BOSCH, but even with a thin kerf blade it was a little too much for that saw, so I took over my buddies cabinet shop! Here are some shots of the first glue up..Here is the blank, out of the clamps and sanded to 1 1/2” thick..Ok, now the fun part..After squaring one end up on the radial ar...

BEFORE I START, IF YOU READ THIS, AND CAN OFFER ADVICE, I’D LOVE TO HEAR IT. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!!

Cutting Board Learning #1: First Steps

2192 days ago by Davidramsey03 | 5 comments »

BEFORE I START, IF YOU READ THIS, AND CAN OFFER ADVICE ON IMPROVING THIS WITHOUT BUYING ANYTHING OVER $25, I’D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR ADVICE. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!! I bought some clearance pen blanks from Rockler (Pau Ferro, Indian Rosewood, and Cherry, I think). Not having any “larger” tools or super-fine precision tools (band saw, table saw, router table, etc.) I decided I would begin the adventure the “backwoods” way. I Started by laying them together, checki...

Lumber Making #4: The Maple has Landed!

2463 days ago by Dorje | 18 comments »

The remainder of the maple came down today and I got a shot of the main trunk section that I plan to mill. It’s definitely going to be spalted throughout. This bole is 35-40” in diameter and the arborist was able to leave it intact from base to crotch! It’s 11’ long. It’s partially cracked on the side you can’t see and does have some splitting, so it probably won’t yield wide boards. I think it is sound enough to go through with this venture. Th...

Projects in Process #1: Barbeque Tray

2463 days ago by DannyBoy | 1 comment »

This is a plan that I found early on in the year and is really what has finally pushed me into doing something with the dusty old tools that I have setting around. I found it by chance on a website and promptly printed a copy of the plans. I’m not too up on copyrights and such, but if you google it as 19830EZ you should be able to find it as a PDF file. Quick back-step: My wife and I are of the belief that there are far too many gifts that are given out impersonally that fall apar...

Cribbage Board Techniques #2: Finishing the Inlets

2486 days ago by Doodler | 2 comments »

Continuing routing the inlets for the cribbage board… After using the fence and clamps to route to the edges of the inlets I finish routing out each segement freehand. I previously scribed the curved segments with a compass and now I carefully cut around the curves with a knife. This is not a common X-Acto which would break immedietly on the ebony, but a hardened steel surgical blade I purchased from Micro-Mark. I use a micro chisel to clean out the edges of the cur...
