Wine Rack Expedition #7: The end in sight... yet...

04-02-2009 07:16 AM by Demowen | 4 comments »

Well Folks, I did what I could today. It was a long day of work and hospital visits so shop time was certainly limited to a few hours late into the night. I left a bit of a glue mess on my back assembly last night so I paid the price for it today.Now, that picture was just to show the assembly without clamps, but this one should be better…and some more….I had a few pictures of my lady checking my sanding job but they all were too blurry. She walked around it and made sure I d...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #4: Learning some more new skills, completing the main box

07-21-2014 12:40 PM by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I haven’t been taking as many pictures the last bit, but we’ve made a lot of progress. We we neared the completion of the main box, we needed to make some bevels on the bottom trim. Rather than resort to the router, we went for the more hand finished look, making the bevels with a plane.They came out really well, and after assembly, he also beveled the corners as you’ll see below. It all turned out very nice. Next came the glue up of the bottom trim pieces and the inst...

Tool chest update #1: Beginning the plan

02-02-2013 11:54 PM by Dan Krager | 0 comments »

I’ve decided to update (slowly) the tool chests that I use to keep things handy, as in within arms reach of bench. No tools are allowed on bench (usually) so with each use things get put back where they are stored. This sketch is a design thought. It does not fully meet the modularity requirement. I also want to put doors on the chests, but just how is still unanswered. I’m considering tambour, pushing up to open. Suggestions and comments are welcome.DanK

Just for Fun... #52: Not much going on... might as well build a birdhouse...

07-21-2011 04:20 AM by littlecope | 15 comments »

Those of you who’ve been on LJ’s for a while may recall my first effort at a birdhouse which began hereSomewhere in there, I mentioned that there was another one to re-build, but I had to wait until it was vacated… Well, the thing finally fell to the ground and the sparrows were forced to re-locate…So today I had a rare free day, and decided to re-work this… Just to begin with, I didn’t like the “eaves” arrangement… I think the guy who ori...

Woodturning...a new Segmented Vase #2: Mortising the base of the vase

06-19-2010 06:21 PM by Bob Simmons | 2 comments »

This video tutorial focuses on mortising the base. Eventually, this section will be reversed and the mortise being made will provide a dovetail-like opening that the chuck’s jaws will grip.There are 3 sections of the segmented vase. Ultimately, all 3 sections will be glued together to form a vase that will be 9” x 12” when finished. There are 18 rings and 24 segments in each ring. (432 total segments). visit…www.TheApprenticeandTheJourneyman.com Learn more, Ex...

Woodturning Projects #1: Epoxy Resin and a Cracked Blank

07-20-2015 02:15 AM by UncleDave | 4 comments »

I was talking to a friend at work about turning, and he said he had thought about trying it at one time. He put the cart before the horse, so to speak, and bought some blanks but never got a lathe. He had them sitting around for a long time, some nice cherry blanks, and gave them to me. The blanks he had were all cut out of the tree pretty poorly I think, as they contain wood really close to the center of the trunk. The first blank I did wasn’t that bad with the cracking, but this large...

New-er woodworker and need finishing help

04-03-2013 03:27 PM by WoodyMark | 11 comments »

Ok, so I know that finishing is an art all in itself. Finishing takes a lot of time and patience for beginners, but it seems that once you get it, you got it! I am struggling pretty badly with a Cherry Top entryway table that I am making my wife. The table started one Saturday as a ‘nothing special’ just needing a place to put a lamp type of project. My wife bought some curvy legs (the type with balls at the bottom of the feet) at Lowes one day because they were on clearanc...

Harvey Ellis Nightstand #1: Intro

02-02-2015 03:32 PM by DBrown52 | 6 comments »

My wife and I will soon start building our dream home in the country. When it’s completed, we’ll be absent both quality furniture to fill it and spare cash to buy any. It’s quite the dilemma. Fortunately, she likes the Stickley/Craftsman style and I have a nice stack of cherry. The plan is for me to build a bedroom set to replace our current collection of hand-me-downs and discount pieces from the meatball place. We did some looking and both agreed that we liked the H...
