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 | 2 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 I have an old “80’s oak” desk in my home office and while it is fine, the style is out of date.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 ...

08-23-2015 09:13 PM by Lazy_K | 4 comments »

Medieval reenactment aka Pennsic or the Pennsic War. I taught woodworking of course.they call me Kai SaerPren there. We got a couple of really nice Cherry butts from a local firewood seller, there’s not enough time to actually make something but we do get to run through a gamut of skills: starting with riving, then hewing, shaving, planing, sawing, marking and making a draw bore mortice and tennon, everyone gets to have some hands-on ti...

live edge lumber #1: Some cherry slabs from my property

08-17-2015 12:28 AM by luv2wheels | 4 comments »

Several years ago we had a local tree service top a very tall cherry tree that they described a being top heavy. I felt it was a real threat to our house, but my wife asked them to leave approximately 12 feet standing. It sprouted new limbs, especially at the top, but I also noticed it had ants going in and out of the bark and that it had a large burl.I hated to see the burl go to waste, so I cut it just above a crotch and found it was solid all the way through. This forced me to rethink my o...

This story starts on a Saturday morning when I got a Facebook message from my friend Rob. “We are having a yard sale and there are a ton of old tools” Rob said. So ofcourse I got in my car and headed over there. I found a lot of great old tools but this week we will focus on the Level I found, It’s a Stanley No. 104 Level 18” long. This will make a great restoration project I thought… I made a video of the restoration as well, you can see it here: View on Yo...

Kitchen Island #1: Seeking Lumberjocks advice on joinery within custom-designed kitchen island

08-15-2015 05:58 PM by GJK | 1 comment »

My custom-made western red cedar fence is done and so is the kitchen rehab, including cherry cabinets and a matching cherry ladder system I designed and purchased from an old-line rolling ladder maker in NYC for reaching the tallest cabinets near the 10’ ceiling: After cutting through walls to open up space above doors and changing all door trim to 8’ high trim, I had two glass workers (an experienced gent in Alabama and a lady in Telluride CO) each make two transom ...

Guarino Videos #1: Lady's Makeup Table

08-11-2015 08:26 PM by GlenGuarino | 0 comments »

This will be a gift for my wife. Years ago I rescued some wood at an old mill dumpsite that was going to burn it all to make room for a housing development. The table is made in Honduras Mahogany was some of that lumber. The center drawer is made in rescued Cherry. A friend of mine was on a construction job where a cherry tree was being taken down. He saved it from the chipper & brought it to me. Dovetail You Tube Mark Dovetail
