Bent Lamination Pulls Process And Results

12-04-2015 05:09 PM by dewoodwork | 2 comments »

Several months ago I shared a design idea for bent lamination dresser pulls. I have some process and results photos to share. I begin by creating templates, bending form and shop sawn veneers of cherry and curly maple. The veneers are glued up using weldwood plastic resin glue and a vacuum press. The laminations are scraped, sanded and jointed on one edge. I created a curved support jig for cross cutting the bent laminations. It comes in handy for scraping and ...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #5: Second Glue Up and Wedged Tenons

12-03-2015 04:19 AM by JimYoung | 5 comments »

The second part of the leg glue up is pretty complicated. Luckily, my Father In-Law was in town for the holidays and he gave me a hand getting all the parts in place. For the through tenons, I used a small amount of glue on the faces of the tenons to minimize squeeze out. Once the legs and “window frame” pieces were all clamped up, I taped off around the mortises. I then forced glue into the top and bottom of the mortise before driving the walnut wedges in place. Removi...

They say it's only vanity that writes the plays we act

12-02-2015 06:40 PM by Dan Lyke | 1 comment »

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted here! I posted this over at Home Refurbers too, but nobody reads that any more so I figured I’d throw this up here. The bathroom is a remodeling project that’s gone on for over a year now, what with life intruding in some pretty heavy ways, and I’m still working on the bathroom vanity, but there’s a little progress on it: The face is 2” thick cherry, which will be carved, so I had to modify the clamp for...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #4: Walnut Inlays

11-28-2015 03:45 AM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

I’ve got a few days off for the holidays, and i’ve been able to get a little more work done on my desk project. I’ve been trying to figure out what type and color wood I want for the inlays and accent pieces. After talking with the guys at the local woodcraft, I picked up some trans tint 0 black dye, a chunk of walnut and some walnut veneers. I played around with these (and after dying my hand black, be careful with this stuff), but did not like the pitch black look. A f...

11-19-2015 01:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

As I write today, I promise I will keep things short. (I know – I always say that!) I want to get going on writing our newsletter that we will be sending out later on today. I also want to get to writing on the instructions for the new ornament pattern that will be available to my scroll saw followers later on today. (SLD519 - Damask Locket Ornament Pattern) (The link will work as soon as I have the pattern available on the site.) I have had such a wonderful and positive response regard...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1654: Creating as Therapy

11-16-2015 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

“It’s all in a days’ work.” Well . . . two days I guess. I spent the weekend focusing on what some would consider 'work'. After Friday's events, it was very hard for me to be my usual positive self. I know a lot of you feel the same. How does one cope with the senseless of what had occurred? I just don't understand it. I decided that the best way for me to deal with myself and my own demons was to try to re-focus on something positive. The pa...

the never ending organinzing and improvements #2: I SEE IT BOARD. THE ORGANIZATION TOOL.

10-29-2015 02:17 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 0 comments »

Part of every workshop success is being organized and having templates on hand to trace and cut out, my shop is no different, for the longest time I kept my templates stuffed in a box, as of lately I have been getting request for shelves, rather than dig out these templates I created the “I SEE IT BOARD” this way a person can see the options that are available, it will be easier for me as well because I will be able to grab what I need and when I am done I can easily put it back ...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #3: Legs and Grill Work

10-21-2015 02:43 AM by JimYoung | 3 comments »

We’ll it’s been a while since I updated my desk build blog. I had 40 mortises to square up on the legs, so I’ve taken the “15 minute” approach to this build. Whenever I had a little spare time I would knock out another mortise. With all of the mortises done, it was on to the tenons. I bought a Rockler heavy duty tenon jigs a while back, and tried it once with mixed results. Prior to that I have been using a home made jig for my router that holds pieces flat...
