10-07-2015 09:00 PM by BenhamDesign | 5 comments »

This is my 3rd and final video of this project. In this video I get really into my hand planing when building the top of the writing desk. I also show a bit of how I do drawer runners and some final assembly of attaching the top. Please subscribe to my YouTube Channel Watch on YouTube If you would like to see more about what I build in and out of my shop please visit my blog at or my custom furniture website at ...

woodworking for money #1: first big commision

09-24-2015 05:05 PM by Gwjames | 15 comments »

So I started talking about this table over in the forum and decided maybe it should be a blog instead. So I have been trying to put my limited wood working knowledge to good use and start trying to sell things I build, or sell items that have not been built yet. I tried everything, posting on craigslist, posting to bookface friends and family, and then on a local for sale page on the bookface, and once I put tables on the for sale page I started getting emails like crazy. Everyone wanted a cu...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1626: Update Day

09-24-2015 10:28 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I got up early this morning and it is still dark two hours later. It is odd how quickly the days get shorter once a certain point is reached. It is getting dark much sooner as well, and I suspect that is why I wound up going to bed shortly after 10pm my time. It just seemed like my day was done. I love these cool, autumn mornings. Even though we are only a day into autumn, it is nice to be able to say that. I sat on the deck yesterday with the cats for a bit, just taking in the warm sun ...

Why buy it when you can make it! #40: Silverware/Cutlery Tray [Part 1] - Clamps - Got em? Use em!

09-19-2015 09:53 PM by paxorion | 1 comment »

After finishing my workbench, I realized that I had no projects in progress. I mentioned this to my wife, and said I would finally get to the tea box she requested. As expected, she asked me to re-order my priority list and work on a more “urgent” project, a new silverware/cutlery tray. Ours has seen better days, with a few partitions broken for some time now. After taking some measurements and working out “requirements”, I set to work today. I picked several ch...

Four-Poster Captain's Bed #2: How this got started...

09-16-2015 06:59 AM by RobII | 0 comments »

How this promise of a captain’s bed came about was almost an accident. My bride-to-be is used to having a large bed, California King, to be exact. All I had was a paltry queen-sized mattress on a relatively low frame. She commented that I probably stuck out over both ends when I slept (I’m 6’ 4”), and I had to agree with her. She also did not (understandably) want to share a bed with me that I had shared with my last (deceased) wife. So, I went and bought a Cal-Ki...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #2: Marking and mortising

09-10-2015 11:57 PM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

Continuing on with my desk project… I milled all of the lumber roughly to size. I left everything a little oversized in case any internal stress warped the boards. Also, my planer blades were shot and leaving raised lines. For now I’m sticking with the HSS blades and got two sets on Amazon for a decent price. The new blades cut like butter. After a few days, I dimensioned all the parts for the legs and all the end pieces. Next, I marked all of the mortise locations. I ...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #1: Getting started

09-06-2015 04:33 PM by JimYoung | 0 comments »

I’ve been working my way up to this project over the last few years. I have an old “80’s oak” desk in my home office and while it is fine, the style is out of date. When I started in woodworking, my hope was to learn enough and hone my skills to be able to replace my desk some day. I can across this design by Kevin Rodel on the Fine Woodworking site, but there was not much information on it just a few photos. I came across a free plan from Mr. Rodel (FWW July/Aug...

Built-In Ironing Board Cabinet #4: Door Success!

09-03-2015 02:56 PM by Chuck McIntyre | 0 comments »

Got up this morning eager to test my theory on what was going wrong with my door. Just as I had thought last night, I wasn’t going deep enough into the bit. Moved the fence back to line up with the nut above the bearing and, BAM, it went together like a champ!

Built-In Ironing Board Cabinet #3: Raised Panel Door Fabrication

09-03-2015 01:48 AM by Chuck McIntyre | 0 comments »

It has been a while since there has been an update on this cabinet. I have gotten a little side-tracked with other projects. I will be working on a torsion box assembly / outfeed table this weekend. As you can see in the pictures, I don’t have a space big enough to put this door together. I am using a Freud raised panel bit set to make these doors. It is my first attempt at raised panel doors. All the pictures were taken during dry fitting. In the first picture you can see the rails ...
