L-Shaped Desk #4: The fire, it burrrrrns!

05-29-2017 08:09 PM by SauceMan | 0 comments »

I want to keep this quick because it’s almost 1pm and I haven’t started yet. I got a new blade and a new belt to put into my table saw, but I really want to get working on my desk. Yesterday was a pretty productive day. I feel like every time I take 8 quarter steps forward, I take 4 quarter steps back. (little woodworking joke for you guys, you can thank me later). Last weekend I got this Diablo blade for my new table saw and spent a fair amount of time trying to square m...

L-Shaped Desk #2: Doesn't look exactly like an L...

05-16-2017 06:46 AM by SauceMan | 1 comment »

There’s a picture of my completed desktop. I made it over the weekend, leaving the rough lumber in my shop for a week before I started tearing into it. I think it’s very close to the original measurements in my SketchUp plans, maybe off by a quarter of an inch or so. If you look at the grain, you’ll see pretty much all the parts are cut with 45 degree cuts, though you may have thought it would be easier to use square cuts for the L. The reason I did it this way is ...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #13: It Is Finished

05-11-2017 11:27 PM by Ron Aylor | 17 comments »

It Is Finished –  Over the last few weeks shop time has been a rare commodity, due to dark, gloomy weather; yet, after a most enjoyable outing with my bride in the rain … I managed to procure hinges and a lock. Eventually, the rain stopped and the clouds parted to let the sun shine through. So, it was back to the shop to wrap my brain around putting the desk together. After a cup of hot tea, and an hour or so of chopping …  ... and wedging …  ... then chopping and wed...

Cherry tree available to all

05-10-2017 05:51 PM by Robert417 | 2 comments »

Hello, I joined just to let interested parties know that we have a very large (2 1/2 ft in diameter) fallen cherry tree in our back yard in Jackson Township, North Canton, Ohio. The wood is too precious to just cut up or destroy by burning. Anyone interested in removing all or some of the tree can email me at rgeltz@neo.rr.com.

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Building a Cherry Queen Bed #5: Finished the Bed and Lessons Learned

05-09-2017 12:18 AM by jonah | 1 comment »

I actually finished the bed last June/July, but forgot to take final pictures of it for a while, then forgot to write up the blog post capping off the project as well. Here’s the bed now (pardon the mess). On the whole, I’m very happy with it. The sanding and finishing of the parts went fine. I masked off the joinery and finished the parts separately, which was great. I’d never done that before but I’m definitely doing that every time I have a project of any sub...

L-Shaped Desk #1: Hello, world!

05-07-2017 04:23 AM by SauceMan | 0 comments »

Hi all! I’m working on my second furniture build. Now that I saw that my Smallder desk—completed photos didn’t turn into matchsticks, I’m braving another desk, this one for the kids’ room. I decided to go all fancy this time and actually sketch up my plans before building it. Here’s two views of the desk I intend to build: I also went to MacBeath today and bought some Cherry that I’ll make this desk out of. Can you picture the desk n...

A Look at a Mini Kanna

05-04-2017 03:19 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

I have very few tools. In keeping with my living space but also in keeping with my belief that skills should surpass the tools that are used. In my mind it makes more sense to be able to make your own tools. So I was attracted to the Japanese thoughts of minimalism in both their tools and their methods. A mini kanna was something I’ve wanted for quite a while. it’s difficult to find one that is high quality new in the US (online or otherwise), but I found a maker (in Japan) tha...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #12: Three in One

04-26-2017 03:33 PM by Ron Aylor | 6 comments »

Three in One –  With frame construction completed, the desk dovetailed together, and the sticking completed for the fitted top and lid, it was time to venture into the interior of the desk. I decided to use Honduran mahogany for the bottom, shelf, dividers, and drawer fonts. I thought this would make for a nice contrast against the gummy cherry. I started off by resawing a piece of mahogany into 3/8 and 1/4 inch thick pieces for the shelf and dividers.  I really should think about getti...
