jewelry chest #1: what you can find in the corners

1571 days ago by Kate | 2 comments »

I was cleaning out my shop not long ago and came across the beginning of a jewelry case I began years ago. It’s been sitting in a corner waiting for me to acknowledge it. The problem is that the joinery was sloppy. It was one of my early attempts at box joints, before I knew about using a backing board. Lots of tear-out. I had also gone cheap for the back and it was ugly 1/4” ply. My first thought was to toss it in the burn pile, but then I took another look and decided to d...

David Marks Piano Bench

1577 days ago by AKWoody | 5 comments »

So this is my first real project. I have spent months practicing mortising and cutting tenons and ruining cheap wood before I attempted anything expensive. So far it is turning out better then expected. My future brother in law plays the piano from a kitchen chair making this an ideal wedding gift. I used cherry with ebony accents, I am hoping the finish turns out well.

Working a Slab by Hand

1577 days ago by davemoorefurniture | 29 comments »

If you have ever had material that is too large for your machines, fear not. In this video I demonstrate how I use a set of planes to achieve a time honored technique by flattening, thicknessing, and joining a live-edge, cherry table top. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to give me feedback so that I may improve in both my woodworking and video abilities.

Wood Gloat

1591 days ago by DocK16 | 17 comments »

I recently picked up some lumber from a local farmer listed in a local paper. He has had this drying for serveral years in his barn, varoius assortment of cherry, oak and maple. He was getting ready to clear another several acres so he was anxious to get rid of it to make more room. I liked the way he graded it for sale: clear/no knots $1.00 a board foot, any knots .50 a foot. Needless to say I loaded up..with 4 truckloads. Should last me for awhile. A stack of cherry. Oak, Cherry,...

Lumber store: complete

1592 days ago by Todd Clare | 9 comments »

First trip to the lumber store, and I think it went well. Got a cherry board (4/4 S3S) that was darker than the rest and pretty nice grain throughout. A tiny sliver of sapwood, but better than the other boards and doesn’t even go all the way through. I went ahead and bought the whole board—figure I’ll practice finishing on a hunk of it, and it’s always good to have some extra around.

Building our own washer, dryer pedestals. #2: Some progress pictures.

1596 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 22 comments »

I’ve been poking along with this project, fitting it in with other chores around the house. It seems like as a person gets older, it takes more time to get anything done, but it gradually gets done.. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~After attaching the side panels, I glued in a piece of foam pad as a silencer. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To stretch my plywood, plus protect the ply edges, I glued ...
