We continue on with the build and get our dados sorted out.
I’m building a Shaker-style nightstand for my fiance’. Going to be handtool heavy for the plane lovers. Time’s scarce; going to be a long project.I’ll dump some photos & elaborate later. Raw cherry ripped and ready: Planing the leg glue-ups: Planing the legs paired (Stanley Fore & Jointer):I’ Pile’s getting deep! Legs square:
I just received some photos of a couple of the Remington 600 stocks I carved and posted as a LumberJocks project. Here’s the project showing a Remington 600 stock carved from a figured walnut blank. ! And now for the finished rifle! A Remington 600 Mohawk in .222 Remington. Left side view. And the right side of the rifle. The customer finished the rifle and it’s ready to take to the shooting range. The second rifle stock the same customer finished was this pr...
I’ve decided that I really need a workbench if I’m going to be doing any amount of ‘real’ woodworking. A board slapped on top of the tablesaw isn’t really cutting it, and I could really use a vise. I’ll be following the ‘Getting Started in Woodworking’ workbench design loosely with many of my own modifications. Much of the design will come out of the components that I have selected for the bench. First, I want a solid wood top rather than ...
As you can see Meilie (mmh) gave me a “Big man’s cane” to try out and to keep. She asked my height and weight and picture of my hand so she knew what size and heft she should make the cane from. It’s an experiment for her, but she hit it on the money, it’s even reversible. What a beautiful piece of art. I’m not sure of the wood types, I think mahogany and cherry but wouldn’t bet my life on it..All I could think of is the bowl I gav...
I had taken the weekend off from the boards to regain my brain power for another week at work and time in the shop. I was wishful that the sawdust ferry had solved some of the problems with the cupping of the board but no luck. I took the boards to my somewhat trusty belt sander with 80 grit and began to bring down the cups and smooth out the glued up edges. I was concerned with the sander because it gouged that last boards I did and it took a considerable amount of time to fix them. I then ...
What do you guys think? This is a chess table that I made in high school, 30 years ago. The main parts are made of cherry and the chess top is made from maple and walnut.I spent most of my time in high school in the wood shop with a wonderful teacher Mr. Boettler. Like any good teacher he gave us good instruction and than let us develop the skills on are own. As I look at the piece today I can see many things that I would have done diffintly if I was to build it today. My question is should...
What has turned out to be a simple and relaxed day has been a long and tedious one. The chess board that I’m building has been what seems to be a chess game in its self. The 4”x16” strips have turned out good but seem to have a little cup to them after the glue up. I took the board and sanded what I could till it was level and smooth. Then the cherry side strips are not perfectly flush against the maple ends. I planed everything but the butt ends just don’t seat all th...
This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at email@example.com.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686
This blog starts half way through my journey. The story goes like this… I took the plunge and offered to take on renovating my in-laws’ 42 year old kitchen last spring. I say ‘starting’ last summer because I am now, as of Feb 2011, in the middle of what appears to be a 12-16 month project. The good news is that my wife’s folks are very flexible in allowing me to work at my own pace fitting nicely with the fact we have a busy life with kids, jobs, etc… ...
