I got a bit more time to work on my tabletop today and it is coming along! I think that the longest part remaining is going to be cutting the butterfly dovetails to keep the cracks from spreading. One edge on the bottom is a mess. It will take some time, but I plan on at least 100 years of service out of a piece of furniture when I build, so it will be worth it. I want to keep away from straight lines in this piece, so I used a curve to draw the edges of the table. The curve is adju...
With the holidays right around the corner, I thought it was a perfect time for a contest. I want you guys to build a Keepsake or Jewelry Box. It can be any Shape and size, just be creative. The Contest is from October 3, 2012 – December 3, 2012 So there is plenty of time to get out out in the shop and get building. We have some great prizes to give away thanks to the support of our contest sponsors. Laguna Tools Woodworkers Guild of America Rockler Woodworking & Hardware A Simple...
Kova в проекте понаписал чего-то по-испански))). Я ничего не понял, но по догадкам, вроде бы спрашивает как делал. Делал вот так: Думаю, довольно доходчиво и понятно. Удачи. Алексей.
This is some wood I got from a job that was on so valueable every scrap had to be saved for three months after it was installed I watched as it was sat unstickered in a east window rained upon, stacked upon, I saved it from the dumpster twice, kicked over and I would go over and restack it(I’m an electrician), lunch upon get this crap outta the way upon, and I would always say I’d love to have that wood I’ll get out of the way” We have to keep it it is valuable” ...
The change in progress: towards a “new end”. Sorry, I don´t know what the problem was, but here you have the video working. I checked it. As I told you I had to do some modifications in order to accomplish a “new” requirement of my client. The client decided to make a change: he need an access to the desk’s inside, when her products are exposed on the counter. After thinking about the possible solutions and having to keep the structural solidity, I dec...
Well I finally finished the Tablesaw Base, trying to film during rain storms is almost impossible with the ambient noise from the rain hitting the metal roof.. but I waited it out, and am very happy with the outcome.. Here is a look at the final steps of building this base
Just a quick update on the Christmas Box Build Off contest from A Simple Design of Ocala. In this video I talk about the prizes and categories.
Consideration #2 If you have fruit tree burls or burls like madrone there are two ways you can semi-stabilize the burl.1. Pressure cook the block:a. I have a friend in New York who gets 12×12 x 6 blocks of Madrone and when he gets them the first thing he does is throws them in the pressure cooker for one hour.b. Let the water cool down until you can comfortably take the blocks out with your hands. Then re-wax them until ready to turn the bloc...
The client decided to make a change: he need an access to the desk’s inside, when her products are exposed on the counter. After thinking about the possible solutions and having to keep the structural solidity, I decided that easiest alternative was to cut the desk board. One of the questions was how to make the holes for the axes in such a small space. I found only one solution: to tear off the central piece for drilling, so that after glueing, the piece could looked like before manipu...
Well…that took a lot longer than I expected. You’d think by now I’d remember that milling the lumber and cutting the joinery is only about the first 25% of the job. The bulk of the effort follows as you make the final adjustments, the final shaping, fine tune the details and then actually sand all the parts, glue up and sand again (and then repair the 6 dings/dents that somehow found their way onto my finished work, thank god for wet rags and irons). And I still have to p...
