Workbench Build #39: Stretchers and Shelf

342 days ago by Airframer | 5 comments »

Now that I have a list I suppose I have no excuse not to at least attempt to finish this thing. So this week I got started on list item #1… The stretchers. I had originally planned to build them out of the same ceder that the legs are made from but changed my mind in the name of weight and durability. So I rummaged through my pile of oak cut offs left from the top and found a slab just the right length for the long stretchers. I figured I would figure out what to do about the sh...

Outfitting the workshop #11: What NOT to do with the lathe!

68 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

This us the second stupid thing I did in the shop today and since the trend seems to be toward increasingly dangerous results I thought I would maybe leave the shop and find something safer to do ;-) for the rest of the day. It was one of those moments where that wee voice in your head says ”...you’re gonna regret this,don’t do it…” just microseconds before IT actually happens. If I had listened to the little voice I would have stopped the lathe, repositio...

Diary of a Wood Hoarder #1: In the beginning was...broken chairs

6 days ago by CFrye | 49 comments »

Seems only right to start this with “Hi, my name is Candy. I am a wood hoarder.” And I’ve only begun! I’ve been actually woodworking for a year and a half (more or less). Available hardwoods at the local box store consisted of red oak and poplar. Now don’t get me wrong, there is some amazing figure in quarter sawn red oak and beautiful color variation in poplar. However it didn’t take long, hanging out here at Lumberjocks, for me to be craving some variety....

Working on our new Cabinets

598 days ago by magicmark | 9 comments »

I’m using the Kreg jig on the face of the cabinets and to join the ply together. So far I like how sturdy it is using glue and screws but I could kick the lumber “expert” that talked me into using 1/2 in ply for the carcasses. I’m doing ok with it, but I wish I’d at least got 5/8 in or even 3/4. I was told 1/2 in is the industry standard…so I guess part of me took that as a challenge, and the other part took the savings on the ply. I have a Skil router ...

Making a toted coffin smoother

49 days ago by Wally331 | 13 comments »

Pics will be on in a few min- will edit when I’ve got em all, hang in there ;) After making my small cherry smoother which worked great, I decided I wanted to up my game and build a more traditional styled plane. I also wanted it to be toted and have a harder wood for the sole of the plane. I chose to use cherry again because it’s what I had and it is very beautiful. For the sole I chose purpleheart- mostly because its what I had, but its also extremely hard and it is actua...

Cherry platform bed #2: Progress

1325 days ago by TheBarrister | 1 comment »

All the boards have been cut to size, planed, and tenons cut. I cut 2” tenons on the short rail boards – why, I don’t know, other than adding 4” to the length seemed like a good idea at the time. Now that I’ll be cutting the mortises I’ll pare them down to 1.5”. Next, will be measuring and cutting the mortises, and the rabbets for the maple ply inserts. One of the nicer pieces of equipment I have is the Hawk router table – the router table...

Cherry Nightstand #2: Acquiring, sorting, and preparing wood

152 days ago by Todd | 1 comment »

I’m very fortunate to have a sawyer close by that caters specifically to hobbyists. These are very knowledgable and nice folks. Shameless plug: Hobby Hardwood Alabama Here is a photo of the first batch of rough sawn cherry I chose: I recently reconfigured and upgraded my dust collector http://lumberjocks.com/projects/95715 which worked out great because I jointed and planed most of this wood in preparation for this build. This picture shows how well the thien baffle worked:...

The Great Workshop Vacation

1525 days ago 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...
