How To make Easy Drawers

12-30-2011 05:52 PM by Sailor | 4 comments »

I just finished making some drawers for two vanities that I am building and I figured I would make a video of the easy method I use to make them. I noticed that there wasn’t a video on Youtube of how to make “easy” drawers with simple joinery so I thought I’d throw mine on there. I don’t use the best joinery I know, but it’s simple and can be done by pretty much anyone with limited tools. I have several drawers in my shop that were built this way and...

TheWoodWhisperer Woodworkers Fighting Cancer Rocking Horse #2: Getting in Shape and putting it together

10-10-2011 04:13 AM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

Following yesterdays work I continued shaping the remaining parts. Yesterday I used a rasp on some smaller parts, and today having to work on larger parts and more of them I decided to forgo the rasp work and power up the oscillating belt sander. Looking back now, I am not sure it was any faster, but it required less muscle work at the cost of more dust in the air – and lots of it!. For parts that had duplicates I only shaped 1, and then using the router table and a flush trim bit tr...

My Ultimate Workbench Build #5: Joint, plane and repeat....

07-16-2011 07:54 AM by RS Woodworks | 4 comments »

Well, with the boards for the top cut to rough length and rough thickness, and the general layout for the top decided on, it’s time to start squaring up the lumber and getting ready to glue the top all together. I started out with jointing one face and one edge flat and square on the 6” general jointer. I set up a roller stand to the exact height on both the infeed and outfeed side. It’s time consuming, but squaring all the lumber is probably the single most important step i...

Teaching the Building of a Powder Horn with Scrimshaw Engraving at the John Campbell Folk School

05-05-2011 04:45 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 4 comments »

Since posting my work on Lumberjocks, I have received a huge number of requests for help and advice on the building of powder horns and doing the scrimshaw artwork to decorate the horn. And, honestly, I can’t really help everyone, as I have to work in the shop myself, so I have accepted an invitation to teach a Powder Horn Building and Scrimshaw Decoration Class at the John Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. The date will be mid-July in 2012, and it is planned for a five day cla...

French Fry Friday #1: November 5, 2010

11-05-2010 03:31 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I started a theme for each day of the week. Fridays will be “French Fry Friday” and I’ll be talking about some sort of accessories that I build. Why “French Fry Friday”? I always here “would you like fries with that?” Fries are a side item and not part of the main meal. Same thing with the accessories or smaller items that I build. I blog about the big stuff but neglect the smaller stuff. So hear is a chance for often overlooked items to shine. This first one is a bookcase that was part of...
