Redwood Table #1: Redwood burl slab table- Advice needed

02-02-2013 08:18 PM by WoodenSoldier | 4 comments »

Hey guys,I’m building a kitchen table out of a 3” redwood burl slab and so far it’s coming along nicely. The legs are being carved from glued up poplar and power carved with an angle grinder. Its coming along well so far (though the grinding is creating buckets of very fine dust). I laid the top on the legs last night just to see how it was looking.I had filled in a lot of the gaps last week with epoxy and last night I was sanding it to try to level it out a little ...

Tombstone Doors, easier than I thought!

01-28-2013 11:27 PM by Oldtool | 5 comments »

When building my wife’s new chest on chest cabinet, I decided to add a little something a little different than the plans that I had on hand, which would be new to me & adds a new challenge for me overcome. The basic plan for this storage cabinet came from Glenn Huey’s book “fine Furniture for a lifetime”, the Chippendale Entertainment Center. This same piece of furniture is featured in another of his book by Popular Woodworking, “Design & Build Your Ideal Entertainment Center”, and i...

Dining Table and Chairs, Griffin Style Legs. #2: "Carving the Lower Flutes & Scrolls"

01-19-2013 11:54 PM by Dennis Zongker | 23 comments »

The first step in carving out the table legs I began with the side scrolls and front flutes at the bottom of the leg. Before I start carving I always hone or sharpen any knife I will be using that have any small chips in the edge. This will give you a nice clean smooth cut when carving. For the table legs I used Genuine Mahogany it is a great carving wood and I think it has a cleaner cut than basswood because of it’s tight grain. To layout the legs I made a drawing template out of a ...

Tip of the day! Use a push stick!

01-17-2013 02:59 PM by OregonBurls | 32 comments »

THE ART OF NOT TAKING A TRIP TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM!Yesterday I awoke out of my daze of admiring a quilted maple block with a shocking sensation and blood everywhere. The dull blade on my bandsaw did not help and using my hands to push the beautiful block through didn’t help either. Simple word of advise which many of you can attest too. Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick! Lets say it all together now! Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick!Keep your tools sharp and ...

My new 1.5 inch flush trim router bit from Whiteside Router bits was purchased with a generous amount of glue covering it (to prevent rust, and from cutting yourself). How might I get this glue off?

The Perfect Leather Washer

12-28-2012 12:17 AM by hhhopks | 9 comments »

I was making replacement handles for my chisels. I tried the sockets and tang versions with good results. I got some old chisel handles that had leather washers at the other end. I was curious if I could make them too. I did the usual searches and had found great information. Since several LJ members is curious about the how they were cut, I have decided that I’ll post the process here. How the leather washers look really desn’t matter. It is an intermediate step of the chisel handle...

Making a violin....maybe #2: Day Two, glue,making ribs, and blocks.

12-12-2012 07:57 AM by Ted78 | 2 comments »

With some great advice from some LJ members I cooked up some Knox gelatin glue to put the back together. I mixed up one packet of gelatine with some water in a little glass jar and stuck that jar in the crock pot with a few inches of water in the bottom. Then I brushed in onto the to the two halves and rubbed them against each other while sitting on a flat surface, in this case the bed of my jointer. (My bench isn’t very flat, and I don’t think the glue will stick to the ...
