Mary Anne's Whistle - handtool version #1: How to with handtools!

06-11-2010 05:58 AM by rwyoung | 6 comments »

OK, so Mary Anne posted some blog entries on making whistles. I decided to make one using only hand tools. Here's a link back to Mary Anne's post. So, we start with some rough lumber. In this case a piece of wacky cherry. The board has lots of pitch inclusions, crazy grain and cupped something awful. But it will be fine for a whistle. By the way, no rulers were harmed (or used) in the making of this project. All measuring done by the Mark-I eyeball. 1) Cross cut a blank. Eye...

The Wine Rack #9: Large Racks Complete

06-09-2010 05:56 AM by Todd Clare | 2 comments »

Although still distracted by the crown molding project, as well as the “rip off the front porch and redesign it” project with the architect we hired, I have found some time to continue on the wine rack. I used the template to flush-trim the larger racks to the final shape and surface. My search for double sided tape ended up with no success (Rockler’s supplier isn’t making it, Woodcraft was out, etc. Need to start searching those internets for it), so I added the ...

In The Beginning #3: And We're Off

06-04-2010 09:24 AM by Crushgroovin | 1 comment »

Never one to let the moss grow beneath my feet and un-dauntingly ambitious I started my next project tonight. I owe my wife big time for being 1) Amazing! 2) being very encouraging throughout the venture into woodworking. 3) oh and putting up with me for the 8 years I spent in an alcoholic stupor. She is going to culinary school right now to become a pastry chef. Our first project was a decorative cutting board we gave her for Mother’s Day. The next day she mentioned she would...

The Wine Rack #8: A little progress, and 56' of distraction

06-02-2010 04:49 PM by Todd Clare | 1 comment »

We completed painting our bedroom, and are going to put up some crown molding, so the wine rack is waiting patiently on the workbench downstairs. I did manage to get myself a finer and smaller bandsaw blade—the one I had was used for hogging turning blanks out of damp logs, so was pretty aggressive and way too large to make the tight curves needed. Next is to use my template to flush trim them—they’re cut within about 1/16” of the line currently.

Patio / Deck Bench #2: Frame just about complete

05-31-2010 02:43 AM by Blinky | 2 comments »

It was so much fun gluing the frame of the bench together (!#$%^&* *&^%$#) = need more clamps , I forgot to take pictures.I like how it’s shaping up though.This is after glue-up, before finish:To glue up, I wiped all mating surfaces (including the dowel holes), with acetone. I used TiteBond III; hope it goes well.To finish, I sanded down to 220 grit, wiped clean. I then wiped with acetone, and applied Penofin. I had to take it outside to see how it looks in its future ‘...

End grain cutting boards #1: End grain cutting boards

05-26-2010 03:31 PM by emetric | 6 comments »

Ok so I have heard a lot of people talk about making end grain cutting boards, and most of them have horror stories relating to disastrous results from running them through a planer. I myself have made no less than 14-15 end grain cutting boards and I ran every single one through my Delta portable thickness planer with very little issue. Of course the last edge that comes out will be “flaking” off but that could be solved by adding an extra piece of sacrificial stock during the ...

Bandsaw/Drill Press Box

05-21-2010 05:34 PM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Ok so here is the blog to go along with my lastest project. I really wanted to do something in the shop from start to finish yesterday. I was cutting up some wood I got from work due to storm damage and decided to cut a few otherpieces that have been floating around in my garage for a while. A bandsaw box is something I have been wanting to really try for a while (made a few experiments) So here is the process I took from a fresh log. Sorry did nto get nearly as many pics as I guess I should ...

The Great Workshop Vacation

05-21-2010 01:41 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

Today is the last day of the traditional work week and I am especially geeked in regards to the following week. Every year, I usually take a week off to perform some major work around the house. Last year consisted of building flower boxes and my roofing project. This year, I decided to give home refurbishing a rest and am focusing on wood and workshop projects. I spent the last two weeks getting all my ducks in a row. Mike (jockmike2) and I visited a mill two weeks ago to pick up some woo...

The Wine Rack #7: Going around in semicircles

05-17-2010 04:51 PM by Todd Clare | 6 comments »

Made some more progress on the wine rack this weekend. My goal was to complete the small racks that hold the necks of the bottles. Each required 5 semicircular holes at 1 1/2” diameter each. I was smart enough to realize that the centers of the large rack holes would be the same as the small ones, so I lined them all up against a board clamped to my bench (to keep them aligned) and marked the center lines. Lesson learned: I really need a drill press table. Up to now I’v...
