.This is the blog of the building of the VW bus according my pattern. . ..This build is from the prototype and after this is done I always do some changes in the drawing where necessary.

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

Brynn's Desk Build #4: Overview of the build

12-17-2017 09:47 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

This writing desk is one of my favorite builds. Made from cherry, with spaltted maple for the side panels and drawer pulls. The drawer pulls are held in place with walnut posts for a little accent. If you are interested in the build process here is a little build video. I started out milling the legs and cutting them to length. Next, laying out the joinery and drawing in the curve I liked for the legs. It is way easier to cut all the joinery to before cutting the curves. This gives...

Basic Bed Frame #2: Time Flies - Everything takes longer than expected

11-22-2017 09:00 PM by EarlS | 0 comments »

When I posted the first chapter in this build I expected that I was going to finish off the “few” details left to complete the construction portion in a day or two…...10 days later, I’m finally moving on to finishing. A 1” cleat was screwed and glued to the side rails for the bed slats to rest on. The slats will help keep the frame square and eliminate the need for a box spring. After boring out the bolt hole for the bed bolt, the hole for the cylindrical ...

Basic Bed Frame #1: A Bed Time Story

11-12-2017 03:03 PM by EarlS | 2 comments »

A little background before I delve into the details of the build. We bought my oldest daughter a daybed when she was in elementary school with the intention to eventually migrate to a queen size bed when she started high school. Well high school came and went and she headed off to college last year…. but no queen size bed. This fall she reminded me of my promise. Since I was in the middle of building my youngest daughter’s desk, thinking I could buy some time, I suggested t...

Making a home for my 45 plane #5: Finishing the exterior, and DONE!

10-08-2017 02:54 AM by CO_Goose | 2 comments »

Now that everything had a home, I removed it all so that the exterior could be finished. After a light sanding to round over the sharp edges, I applied a coat of Boiled Linseed Oil (BLO) for a minor amount of protection. The corners were also reinforced with 1/4” walnut dowels for a nice contrast to the pine. Remember that board for the base and lid? Well after the BLO hit it, it was obvious that it was not pine, but cherry, so that is providing another contrast to the box as well. ...

Walnut & Cherry, new project #4: Lid work, and a sealcoat

09-12-2017 03:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Box is out of the clamps. Decided to build the lid as a frame & raised panel.. Did a bit of trading for a stick of Black Walnut. Crosscut to get a few parts. These for the raised panel.. needed this for a pair of long rails, and.. These two for the short rails.. Long rails were ripped into a matching pair….needed saw marks removed.. Next day. got the blank out of the clamps, and planed them flat.. Made a jig to hold the panel still.. While a pair of #4 plan...

Walnut & Cherry, new project #3: Stanley 45 time...

09-09-2017 01:53 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, I have the Stanley 45 all set up….need to mill a few tongues on the end pieces.. Called a “Match” cutter, cuts a 3/16” wide tongue, for a tongue and groove joint… Fence sits below the cutter. As this were designed to mill up to 4/4 stock, a 3/4” thick piece will have a bit of overhang. I raised the depth stop up, out of the way, as the cutter has it’s own. I used this set up, to hold the end pieces still, long enough to mill the edg...
