The old time woodshop journals #13: Country spoon carving

07-09-2012 11:43 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

Well it sure has been a heat wave over here on our side of the farm…..man oh man the daily temps in the high 90’s with a good dose of humidity to boot. I sure hope all of you are taking your woodwork slow and carefully if you are working outdoors or like me in a non air conditioned shop with fans only. I took a bit of a break for a few days to keep things cool…....literally…lol. My Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table is still ongoing with the top being worked on ...

Whistle Me This #1: Basic Whistle

07-05-2012 02:29 PM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

I’ve decided to start a new series about whistles after my first attempt which was really fun and was posted here and about which this blog is about: I wanted to make a whistle for quite some time now, but just never gotten to it. I also knew I would like to involve my daughter in the making of… which worked out great! Everything used (material wise) for this project was from the cutoff bin (ok, I don’t have an actual bin – it’s just pieces that were left o...

Just for Fun... #63: A Tale of Two Hinges...

06-25-2012 01:29 AM by littlecope | 13 comments »

I spent the better part of a day, almost two weeks ago, cogitating and musing on an idea I had for another set of wooden hinges… The idea was to make a simple set, in the style of what I’ve begun calling “Finger Hinges”...This time I wanted two smaller ones, to put on either side of the box, rather than a “piano” style across the whole back… I also wanted them to thin almost to a point, as the fingers extended… I had a very hard time visua...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #15: Material Prep for Panel Doors - With #48 Video

06-23-2012 04:05 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 66 comments »

When we left off yesterday, I had a pile of cherry needing attention. So tonight The plan was to joint whatever I had to in support of the next step in this cabinet build: assembly and glue-up of the upper panel doors. The panel boards ended up just a hair less than 1/2” according to the measure on the planer, and I arranged them into a pattern that’d look good across both doors (three pieces per door). But some work is needed before I can do the glue up. I brought the p...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #14: Milling Cherry for the Cabinet Face

06-22-2012 02:56 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 27 comments »

Pictures tonight, but precious little dialogue. Lunchbox planer was out with a bad switch, but it came back this weekend. So the boards went through multiple passes then were each given the #4 smoother treatment. I did move to the #4 1/2 after awhile, and the mass was very welcome. I ripped a thicker board then did the re-saw of those boards on the old Craftsman bandsaw. When the night was over, the cabinet was covered with the fruits of the evening’s labor. Let ...

Nail Gun Cabinet Project #3: Finally........

06-15-2012 10:22 AM by Gshepherd | 3 comments »

Well I finally got the finishing touches done and here is the final result. A blissfull moment here… Took my measurments for the rails on the face frame they were all cut the same and they fit perfect. This pic shows the before they were glued and a few 23ga brads. Sanding before assembly sure makes life easier. This pic shows the crown moulding installed with built up bracing that will give it the strength needed. Several screw were put on the backside of the crown. All Piece...

3 Girls & A Woodworker #12: Garage Sale Wood Gloat

06-11-2012 01:51 PM by John_G | 2 comments »

After seeing an ad on craigslist for a garage sale that was going to have some rough cut lumber i figured i’d buzz over and check it out. Turned out for whatever reason the gentleman was getting out of woodworking and looking to sell a bunch of lunber he’s had drying in his garage for years. As i look around i saw maple, cherry, and Peruvian Walnut. Playing a little niave i asked what i was worth and how much he wanted to sell. He said all of it. I passed on any of the sc...
