Kitchen Cabinets #1: It's time for a cabinet meeting!

08-29-2010 02:26 AM by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

The great cabinet build started in earnest on Thursday.  Before any cabinets got built, however, I had to wait for a little help to show up to cut the full sheets of plywood down.  While waiting I gave the shop a pretty good cleaning and even managed to organize my sheet good pile. I even manged to measure and label all of the partial sheets with their size, including thickness. With the layout of my shop, cleaning up this space was very important in order to have a clear path...

"Victorian Style Bed" Headboard Carving's

08-29-2010 12:33 AM by Dennis Zongker | 21 comments »

Hi Everyone, This year sure is flying by. Here are some step pictures of a “Center Headboard Fan Carving,” and a little peek at the carved back panels, out of solid cherry. I’ve been working on this bed for two months. I’ve been having a blast working on this bed. With all the carving and bending. The economy has been really slow, we have been very lucky to still be busy. “Knock on wood” We have had to be leaner and more productive this year. Also, We...

Tall Music Cabinet #1: Beginning to Build

08-25-2010 06:42 PM by DrSawdust | 5 comments »

My wife teaches piano lessons in the living room of our home. She has a lot of sheet music that get scattered around. She doesn’t want to put a large filing cabinet in the living room . . . something about being too tacky. I tried my best to explain that the paint is usually dry when you buy them. She just gives me that look and asked me to build her something to match the little cherry bookcase that sits in the living room. Basic box is done . . . finished trim on the sides. It...

How to Create Dentil Mouldings on the Dado Sled

08-20-2010 08:46 PM by Bob Simmons | 11 comments »

Dentil mouldings are a distinctive member of the classical moulding family. Often you will see a distinguished building and then when you look up to view the architectural moulding of the cornice you will very often see dentils as one of the cornice members. The same holds true for furniture. Visit a museum that features fine woodworking from the past few hundred years and you are sure to find a furniture piece with a cornice that includes dentil moulding. So, if you were building f...

Just for Fun... #28: Sawdust Update...

08-10-2010 01:30 PM by littlecope | 13 comments »

I went up to the Folk’s house once again last week to mow the lawn… but it didn’t need it. We’ve had very little rain and are in the “Dog Days” of summer when the grass slows down anyway…So, to pass the time, I combed through the wood stashes that are there… It seems I’ve inherited a pretty large supply of woods (at least for me!).Aside from the pallet full of cribbing blocks, there are various other piles, like this one which is mostly Oa...

Amateur Hour #2: Nice weather = Not working in shop!

08-09-2010 04:30 PM by agartzke | 0 comments »

Well, perhaps it was foreshadowing or some fancy trick, but I mentioned in my first (and last) post that the weather was starting to turn nice. I should have kissed the idea of woodworking over the summer goodbye right then… lucky for me I got the bug to start up again a bit earlier than expected. I spent maybe 12 hours in the shop over the two days of the weekend. It’s time to start finishing the projects that I have started, and to my chagrin, that total is currently four (ye...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #65: New Musical Instrument Ornaments (With Pictures!!!!)

08-07-2010 03:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Well, I started today off with a bang. Literally. I barely had the sleep out of my eyes and a couple of sips of coffee in my body and I began finish sanding the set of ornaments I was working on. I accidentally caught the corner of the sand paper on a holly leaf and it broke off. I went to the freezer to get my cyanoacrylate glue and I had a not so nice surprise. It seemed that yesterday I was pretty hot and pretty busy and I had put a can of Diet Coke in the freezer “just for a m...
