DeWalt Radial Arm Saw #3: Making Sawdust

06-16-2009 01:10 AM by CutNRun | 8 comments »

The saw is on its cabinet. The cabinet is mounted on an HTC mobile base, and all alignments have been completed. I was amazed at being able to hold within 0.001” on nearly all of the saw alignments and adjustments. As the old saying goes, they don’t make them like this any more. The cabinet is made of poplar plywood with cherry border trim. I wasn’t able to locate baltic birch. The trays are simple design that ride in slots cut into a hardboard skin. Simple but ...

Quarter Round Display Shelf #3: Sockets and Pins Oh My!

05-17-2009 03:40 AM by sIKE | 11 comments »

Well, finally got some shop time in. I cut the sockets with my father’s help a couple of weeks ago, and that went well other than one mishap due to a knot. I got out this afternoon and cleaned up the shop and then got to work on the setup for cutting the pins. That took a while but after dozen or so ;) test runs I had my wife come out and take a look to see if I was being a bit too AR. Of course I was and she said that everything looked fine. So, isn’t this the way it always goes,...

Lumber Making #1: A "Mini" Series - up to present

06-26-2007 07:10 AM by Dorje | 19 comments »

I’m posting these pictures as a means to get bloggin’…and, because I’m interested in milling and drying lumber (on a scale that I can accommodate – in the backyard). I’m also brand new at it, so it’s just fun to share! I would have liked to have photos or video of this ‘small time’ sawing in the backyard, but wasn’t quite there yet! Inspired by Bob’s forum topic post the other day on the craigslist cherry crotchwood, I took some pics of some crotchwood I cut in April… A couple p...

Quarter Round Display Shelf #4: Finishing Question

05-19-2009 08:04 PM by sIKE | 6 comments »

This is my first go around with finishing cherry. I have decided, based off of my previous blog in this series, to leave the sap wood alone. Currently I have been thinking about a base coat of shellac, followed by a couple of coats of BLO, then buffing it out with a couple of coats of wax. Opinions and/or recommendations are appreciated. I know this might be best posted over on the forum, but really wanted to keep the conversation centered around this blog…

Quarter Round Display Shelf #7: and Finally!

07-25-2009 06:06 AM by sIKE | 10 comments »

Well after one long month of frustration with a height issue. I finally got this project to the finishing stage today. The bentwood lamination I bragged about the last time was a bit short in height once I finished cleaning up the glue up. After multiple goes at getting all three edges even and losing 1 1/2” in height. I had my dad come over and give me a hand this week and we finally got her done. Hot glue, a straight edged board, a 1/2” upcut spiral bit, and a bushing on the old...

The Splined Mitre Joint

07-08-2010 03:51 AM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

The Splined Mitre Joint is a decorative yet very strong joint. The addition of the spline and glue makes a regular mitre joint all the more stronger while aiding in keeping the mitre nice and tight. By using a contrasting wood the woodworker can achieve a very distinctive appearance at the joint. This woodworking video tutorial shows how the spline mitre joint is made using a woodworking jig on the tablesaw. For more information.visit…www.TheApprenticeandTheJourneyman.com.........

Apothecary Cabinet/Tea Chest #1: In the Beginning, There was Cherry

11-11-2007 12:23 AM by Jon3 | 4 comments »

I drink a lot of tea. And I don’t like the bagged stuff, I like fresh tea, carefully brewed. Call me anal. Or picky, or what have you. So I buy a lot of tea from Upton Tea I buy it in these small tins. Now I’ve got a stack of these just sitting on the counter, so I figured something a little more organized…. I picked up the plans for the Apothecary Cabinet from plansnow, and downloaded the PDF. These seem pretty good, and I like the apothecary cabinet design, but t...

Working a Slab by Hand

04-27-2010 05:41 PM 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.
