Wood from the Past

03-16-2012 05:39 PM by Chuck | 4 comments »

My Grandma has been cleaning out her garage and the garage that was Grandpa’s shop and has found several boards for me. I went by last night and picked them up, the biggest of the boards was this Cedar 2×10 that is 8’ long. I wire brushed a lot of the dirt off the board but then I needed to plane the rough sawn board to get a look at the wood. Here is the stack of the other boards, it’s a mix of walnut and cedar with maybe a few other types of wood in there. I...

Make a Simple Lift Lid Box

03-29-2013 10:26 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 9 comments »

In this video I show you how to make a simple yet elegant lift lid box. These little boxes can be made with with different woods to give them their own character, and due to the simplicity they can be made in batches.. They make a great gift to give someone. The boxes in the videos are made from Spalted Pecan, White Oak, & Mahogany. Each Box was finished with 2 coats of Danish Oil to bring out the natural beauty and color of the woods. Also in the video I talk about an upcoming project...

Do birds kiss?

03-28-2010 08:11 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 11 comments »

I have been getting ready to make some visual bird houses for my grand kids. They will have a red window in the back for viewing. They can be hung in front of the kids bedroom windows so they can watch all the action of the birdlings. Both our kids have split entry houses so the bedrooms are plenty high enough off the ground. I am using some free cedar fencing cutoffs. They will not be finished, just natural. I am going to pre-drill some nail holes so the kids can nail them together t...

Cherry Blanket Chest #5: Almost done

02-18-2012 07:20 PM by jcwalleye | 4 comments »

With the lid built, joinery done, hinges mortised and everything sanded it’s off to the finishing room. The maple panels were finished earlier while making the frame, so all thats left was finishing the frame parts. There are over 40 frame pieces and I wanted to get as much pre-finishing done as I could. Here is a snapshot of my finishing area and some of the materials I’ll be using. I’ll start with 2 coats of General Finish Seal a Cell, followed by many coats of ArmorSeal. In between...

3 Strings CBG (cigar box guitar) #2: More neck work

10-15-2012 11:40 PM by FreddyS | 2 comments »

Hi again, this time I’ll show you the extra work I did with the neck: You can see in the pic the small cigar box I got for the cbg, a Romeo y Julieta brand, cedar plywood, it is almost too small for the scale I choose (25”) but I will use it anyway, time will tell if I need to replace it. Here I did another “first timer”, a pattern jig to cut a nice shape into the headstock, used double sided tape to attach the pattern to the headstock and routed away… and...

French cleat garage storage system #2: Let's hang up some planes

09-24-2009 09:29 PM by jeffreythree | 8 comments »

I ‘had’ to try hanging something on the french cleat portion already up; so I picked my Stanley #6, 7, and 8 because they have stayed so buried I have not cleaned them up for use. I first picked out some likely lumber, a little eastern red cedar shorts from my mill, some left over 1/8” ply for a bottom, and an oak cleat from the left over pile. I ripped the cedar down to 1-1/4” for the trays. There was so much tension in the wood it literally cracked apart as...

Little Tansu Inspired Case #3: Drawers

02-21-2008 11:14 AM by Dorje | 18 comments »

I had some time in the evening to continue on my little case… I was able to get the drawer lock joints cut on the four little drawers. Fortunately, I set this up the other day. Without instructions, it took me a little longer than it probably should have. Once you dial in the height for a good fit, it’s all in the fence adjustment. Pretty decent little machine joint, that’ll be a lot faster to perform the next time: Next up, I cut the grooves for the bottoms (on the ...

Cedar Window Box (Update)

06-08-2012 04:17 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

Hello everyone, a short time ago I posted a project titled Cedar Window Box. In that project post I mentioned that I would check with the client for their approval on posting the dimensioned SketchUp graphics I created. Well, they approved. I put together a brief, and I mean brief, video that includes the dimensions for all of the major components of the window box. I had to do it this way because the graphics were too large to post on the project page. The clarity is not as good as I had ...
