Workbench Build #1: First sniff of glue

23 days ago by Mark Kornell | 11 comments »

I’ve been planning a workbench build for two years, maybe a bit longer. Started by reading everything I could, followed by some quality SketchUp time. Had a design, changed it. Tweaked it again. Threw the design out and started over. More tweaking followed. And so on… Settled on a Roubo variant, and ordered Benchcrafted hardware. A year and a half ago. Complete re-design once again. Did a couple tweaks to that and ordered the lumber. Should be well-acclimated to my shop by n...

Bathroom Vanity Commision #4: Bottom shelf, medicine cabinet, and spraying the interior

25 days ago by emetric | 1 comment »

As I have mentioned in an earlier post, it was decided early on that we would make the bottom shelf slatted instead of flat plywood. This actually turned out to be a little more challenging that I had hoped. It ended up with 12 slats, originally 14 but I dropped the 2 outer slats because I felt the joinery would be too busy, all connected with dominos to the front and rear rails. I also went ahead and pre-finished this shelf in anticipation of access issues while spraying. This piec...

Bathroom Vanity Commision #3: Face frames and cabinet interior

25 days ago by emetric | 0 comments »

The face frames were not all that involved so I did not take a lot of pictures of the cuts and positioning of the parts. Most of the pieces were square edged pieces joined with dominos. At one point I had to decide on whether or not to include a reveal around the curved rail that framed the open space in the front of the piece. I did take pictures of the face frame both ways, in the end I decided to go with the reveal because I felt that the shadow line provided by the reveal really added...

Cherry sideboard #5: Carcass and drawers

31 days ago by SFDCapt | 2 comments »

Well it has been a few weeks since any update on this project. Between work schedule, family and, kidney stones I got a little behind. Anyway here is the latest on the Stickley sideboard. I managed to get the two side panels made and glued to the legs, as we saw in the last installment of this blog. Then I used some birch plywood to make the back and bottom of the drawer area. I went with the plywood for two reasons. First being the stability and second the ease of use. These two pie...

Cane With Character

40 days ago by Pooka | 0 comments »

I jumped the back fence several months ago. We have a canyon out there and there is a lot of deadfall and detritus that I like to rummage through for odds and ends that might make interesting additions to my project list. The last adventure uncovered this length of acacia which I thought might make a neat cane. It’s very hard wood, so carving it has taken a lot of hours. Obviously, the thing can’t get chucked up on my lathe, so I took some killer grinding bits to it with my ...

Cutting board from builders' samples

48 days ago by sgmdwk | 4 comments »

When some friends from church learned I was a wood worker they brought me a box of samples they had left over from building their house. These were squares of finished wood, about 5 to 6 inches a side and around 3/8 inch thick. Some were stained, some painted; some were milled, some flat. There was alder, oak, birch, mahogany, walnut, hickory, cherry. “We were sure you could find something to do with them,” they said. It was an interesting pile. But what o do with it? I mad...

shop projects and upgrades #4: slow rise to a top

49 days ago by jacob34 | 1 comment »

I finally got back into the shop on my bench build. I have been sidelined for awhile with a bum elbow and well snuck down into the shop anyway. Shhhh do not tell my wife. I was going to make the front six inches or so five inches thick and decided to make it all the same at the last minute. So after a table saw mistake of which I am still not sure what I was daydreaming about when it happened, I ended up with my boards thickness planned to a little more than 2 3/4”. I have 1...

Cherry Nightstand #3: Raised Panels for the Sides

52 days ago by Todd | 2 comments »

Rather arbitrarily I chose to make the side panels for the nightstand first. Actually it is only the second set of raised panels that I have done so I was kind of nervous and wanted to get them out of the way. For the rail and stiles I used “Sommerfeld’s Roundover Chip-Free Rail & Stile Set”. This rail & stile design eliminates chipping that is caused by a buildup of stress on the leading edges of the pattern. You can see in the pics below how the leading eadge i...

Cherry Refreshment Table #2: Drawer and Hardware

54 days ago by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

This is where we left things last time…-----I built the small single drawer with half blind dovetails at all four corners. -----I installed a 9” full extension undermount drawer slide. I use a hardwood shim between the drawer bottom and the slide. I plane the shim to fine tune the fit of the drawer in its opening. -----Drawer installed.-----The drawer bottom is aromatic cedar.-----Here you can see the blocking that was added to receive the drawer slide, and the figure 8 fasten...

Cherry Nightstand #2: Acquiring, sorting, and preparing wood

55 days ago by Todd | 1 comment »

I’m very fortunate to have a sawyer close by that caters specifically to hobbyists. These are very knowledgable and nice folks. Shameless plug: Hobby Hardwood Alabama Here is a photo of the first batch of rough sawn cherry I chose: I recently reconfigured and upgraded my dust collector http://lumberjocks.com/projects/95715 which worked out great because I jointed and planed most of this wood in preparation for this build. This picture shows how well the thien baffle worked:...
