Projects #11: Boards galore- thoughts on production run quantities of work

83 days ago by NedB | 3 comments »

There are the strips for the latest two end grain boards I’ve been working on. Craft show season is upon us again, and my wife and I are tooling up for a big push now that the weather is nice enough that I can get out in the shop without frostbite setting in. I’ve been cranking out a bunch of smaller boards, plus a few of what I consider average size… roughly 10×12x1.25” or so… I’ve done ‘enough’ simple boards now that it has ...

B/S Boxes - lots of parts

87 days ago by wncguy | 6 comments »

Making some larger (these are about 10” high, 7” wide & 5” deep) band saw boxes for sisters-in-law + extra for the gallery. I decided to take some photos of the various parts… I neglected to take a photo of my side cut on the box that allowed entry to cut out the drawers. I did a full top to bottom cut for that purpose since I find I can get a tighter fit when gluing it back. I’ve had people ask how do you cut those things (especially with the segmented dr...

Cherry book rack #2: Hours in Photo Shop

95 days ago by sandhill | 7 comments »

A few weeks ago I posted a project I had built that I am sure everyone has seen in the woodworking magazines as well as a few books and in the post I had shown my third book rack and yes I am tired of making this exact project but I cant stop. I like it and I’m hooked. I thought I would change it up a bit by adding a bit of Marquetry to the sides. I set out to find a design that would compliment the style as well as the wood which is cherry I want to do this in the form of an inlay on e...

Wooden Planes #13: Two Cherries Jointer

96 days ago by Mark Kornell | 0 comments »

Neither as long nor as wide as Derek Cohen's, but still pretty hefty: 24” long jointer, bedded at 45 degrees. The iron is a LV woodie, 2 3/8” wide. Beech body with ipe sole. The tote is cherry, knob is jatoba. Finish is tung oil. The knob is threaded in so I can remove it easily. Without the knob, I find it hard to get a good grip for planing or lifting it, so I just leave the knob on. I must admit that I’m not a hand plane purist. If I need to joint something in e...

Cherry Nightstand #5: Top

98 days ago by Todd | 2 comments »

In this entry I will cover the top construction for the nightstand. Before I get started I want to apologize for not having many pictures of the top construction. You may be asking “What’s the big deal about the top? It’s just a panel glue-up and edge routing…” Normally, I would say it’s not that big of a deal but since I am trying to match the style of existing furniture (at least in spirit) it was a little more complicated. The top is actually in t...

Wooden Planes #8: Checker board block plane

98 days ago by Mark Kornell | 1 comment »

This is a bevel-down low angle block, bedded at 37° This one was also an exercise in lamination. Cherry and walnut, with a white oak sole. Finish is Waterlox and wax. It darkened the cherry considerably (and the cherry has continued to darken all on its own), so the contrast isn’t what I was originally going for. Again, the glueup was done with UF glue. While the number of pieces would have been manageable with PVA, I didn’t feel like rushing. It took 3 separate glueups t...

Wooden Planes #7: Laminated Block

98 days ago by Mark Kornell | 0 comments »

This one was an exercise in lamination. 6 primary species of wood – western maple, red oak, sapele, cherry, birch and walnut. Two pieces of each species, each piece at a different thickness, and some random veneer thrown in between each primary wood piece, for a total of 23 layers. The sole is white oak. Glue is urea formaldehyde, so I could glue it up in one go. Didn’t think I could get it done with PVA. The bed is 45 degrees, and was my first double iron plane. I someho...

Workbench Build #4: Almost the whole top

100 days ago by Mark Kornell | 0 comments »

Managed to get all four sections of the top glued up. A bit laborious, but pretty straightforward. Decided to take a suggestion and use some jatoba for contrast. The plan was to glue up 4 sections of boards. Then I’d flatten each section before gluing the sections together. The rationale was that it would be easier to flatten each section using the powered jointer and planer than it would be the entire top using hand planes. There were two problems with this approach, both of whic...

Apartment Projects #21: Have to Get in the Shop!

106 days ago by littlecope | 11 comments »

It has been a L-O-N-G and C-O-L-D Winter here in New Hampshire!!Perhaps we didn’t break single day records, but it has been consistently cold since last October, which dealt a crippling blow to my enthusiasm for Woodworking… The Temperature in the Basement Shop here hovered around 40° for most of that time, too cold for whatever determination I possess!But the Calendar pages turn, and Good Old Sol continues to ride higher in the Sky, with inevitable results… It is fin...
