Turns out Brandon (LJ Member bhog) and myself don’t live very far apart. He mentioned to me that he was cleaning up his shop and offered me some cherry and walnut scraps. So I went by his place after work last night. It was great to meet him, and I am thrilled to have some new material to work with. Thanks Brandon.Not only did he give me a the scraps, he also gave me these nice cherry boards.and this walnut board.

Cutting Boards #2: Jointers and Handplanes!

03-08-2012 03:25 AM by MolokMot | 2 comments »

Started the milling process on the cherry boards tonight. The biggest problem in my shop right now is that it is in the basement of the townhouse I rent. Living room is right up stairs and the noise / smell really carries. So I used my jointer to quickly flatten one face then I cleaned them up with my new handplanes which I tuned up this past weekend. This comming weekend I am really hoping get get enough time to finish the milling process on all the boards and begin ripping them down to t...

Almost done with my Wife’s Shoe Rack, put the doors on today and some molding on under the top. I used Grass soft-closing hinges for the doors. Now all I have is some sanding and to put the finish on and I am done. I think I can see the finish line.

Cherry Blanket Chest #5: Almost done

02-18-2012 07:20 PM by jcwalleye | 4 comments »

With the lid built, joinery done, hinges mortised and everything sanded it’s off to the finishing room. The maple panels were finished earlier while making the frame, so all thats left was finishing the frame parts. There are over 40 frame pieces and I wanted to get as much pre-finishing done as I could. Here is a snapshot of my finishing area and some of the materials I’ll be using. I’ll start with 2 coats of General Finish Seal a Cell, followed by many coats of ArmorSeal. In between...

Building an Acoustic Guitar #2: The Neck, Shaping the Heel

02-13-2012 12:33 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 7 comments »

My lovely wife spent her weekend watching the kids and provided me with nearly two full days of shop time. In the intervening days I’d decided I wanted to build one of the guitars from cherry. I have a rather large stockpile and had read somewhere that Martin made/makes a “sustainable” series out of cherry, so it can’t be all that bad an idea, right? I’ll just set aside one of the two maple blanks for later and replace it with a new cherry one. Another imp...

Model Bell 407 helicopter project #4: Sanding and shaping.

02-07-2012 04:51 AM by Ryan Haasen | 2 comments »

In the last while, I have been sanding and shaping the helicopter. I did end up getting the pneumatic sander. It is the perfect tool for the job. I have probably spent 10 hours, but many more are to come. It is ver difficult to get it to the same shape of the real helicopter, it is still more square-ish then I would like it to be. Also just realized that the rear-bottom comes to a point, so a lot of material is yet to be removed. Thanks in advance for your comments.

Period dressing mirror project #1: ground zero.

01-24-2012 06:13 AM by ELCfinefurniture | 0 comments »

I have two weeks before starting at NBSS. I have been kicking back to be honest before school starts however I wanted to still take on a project that bring me right up untill day one. I wanted something small, yet complex and involved.My wife loves her makeup and likes to agonize over it for a long time like a finish. Not that she needs it but its her thing. So I thought what more of a perfect piece to make then a period style dressing mirror. I am basing this one on a federal one from Bosto...

Kitchen Cabinet Build #1: Boxed in... Oh No!

01-23-2012 09:55 PM by JohnMeeley | 19 comments »

This build has been in ‘progress’ far too long. It started with a reset of my kitchen layout that my Wife and I agreed upon. Much of a back-story here, but in the essence of brevity, I’ll just say this is the point I got to quickly and stopped. The Cabinets are somewhat standard construction with BB ply for the box, Hard Maple for the roll outs and Heirloom Cherry for the face frames and raised panel sides. The roll outs are on full ext. slides. The top rollers are 22”...
