Workbench Build #35: Endcap Part Deux....

391 days ago by Airframer | 6 comments »

Now that the wagon vise is sorted out and functioning quite well I might add (am having too much fun with it right now tbh).. Last night after work (1am.. pretty sure my neighbors hate me right now) I decided to go ahead and make the 1” dog for the vise. Fairly straight forward. Sanded the 1” dowel slightly to give it a smooth fit (using the vise to do it no less :D ) Then cut to length, cut an angled notch at the top and then used my 1/4” chisel to cut a grove d...

The old time woodshop journals #2: From the shop to the fields to the bench

832 days ago by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

In the ongoing appreciation of being so lucky to work with wood I thought a small field trip was in order. The trip was designed to get even more in contact with the reasons and values of what makes the fascination of wood work ever growing in my life. It is far too inviting to get lost in the tangle of parkway traffic, impatient attitudes and a breakneck pace that actually lends to a greater amount of stress than one person really would ever believe. How would I be able to have the proper...

I wanted a bandsaw to cut up wood into usable lumber.Now I am starting really small, but have had some initial success with the GO555P.So lets have a look.Pile of cedar fencing I had to replace due to rot at the bases I zipped them through the bandsaw and planed one side and one edge square, then resawed. Here is what I came up with I had better success with dust control and I wore a 3M N95 mask….I didn’t smell the cedar until I took off the mask. My home mad...

Adirondack Chairs #1: Halfway into the White Oak version

339 days ago by Jacob C. Heffelfinger | 1 comment »

This is the first entry in this series, but I’m already halfway into the White Oak version of my Rockler Adirondack chair. I’m also building a Western Red Cedar version, but haven’t started dimensioning the boards yet. I’m starting the blog at this point in the project, because 1. I wasn’t a member of LJ before starting the project and 2. I need to get my thoughts down about what I’ve learned so far, because this is really my first TRUE hardwood project...

Bridal chest #3: Cover and cedar

31 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

today i got the chest cover routed. This is a simple chest so I did a simple edge. A plain cove. .. . I braced the underside of the cover with maple cross pieces. Four recessed screws and glue. .tapered plugs will fill the screw head holes. I’ll chisel them off and sand them tomorrow after the glue dries. .I picked up a couple of boxes of aromatic cedar at home depot. Pretty expensive stuff I might add. It’s glued and pin nailed in. the pin nails of course are l...

Big Time Projects

1655 days ago by Jay Neale III | 10 comments »

I have been contracted to supply a boutique somewhere in New Mexico with 36 pairs each of Red Heart and Cedar candle holders, with the promise of more orders to come before summer. Also a local T-Shirt shop has just ordered 75 tie dyed shirts—all purple because of the high school colors—and they want them before the end of the month. I’ve been busy building my assembly table and moving some things in my shop, but I’ll put that on hold to get these jobs out on tim...
