Wood on wheels

12-21-2010 03:16 PM by Ilija | 3 comments »

This is a bike I’m making for my daughter, it still lacks the finishing touches, like final paint coat, and the lacquer. The seat and the wheels we bought, everything else is water resistant plywood, screws and birch wood. The body of the bike can be flipped up side down to achieve greater seat height. Following more pictures…

Contemporary Cross project #8: Shiplap on horizontal piece

12-17-2010 07:28 AM by kevinw | 2 comments »

Now that the dado in the horizontal piece is complete put it temporarily in place over the vertical piece. The joint should be snug but neither loose or tight. Score the lines for cutting the curves on the vertical piece. You can see here the score lines ready to begin cutting. Repeat all the steps shown in earlier installments of the blog to create a dado in this piece that is 1/2 the depth of the lumber, etc. Here you see both pieces with the waste removed. They are...

Contemporary Cross project #7: Continuing the shiplap joints

12-15-2010 03:03 AM by kevinw | 1 comment »

Here is a top view after making the bandsaw cuts Use your chisel to start cleaning out this section. It is a good idea to work from both outside edges towared the middle to not split out on your finished edges anywhere. Here I have pretty well cleaned out the easy part. Now on to the curves. I have chiseled away a few layers and continuing rescoring along the curved line and carefully removing material. You have to be really patient as the scoring does not go deep and...

Progressing Forward

12-13-2010 04:17 AM by matt garcia | 7 comments »

Well it finally wamed up enough around here to do some glue ups. I got my feet made and glued up, and attached them to the base. Then I routed the edge of the base, and made the transition moulding and glued that. Now a mother cold front has come through, and it looks like it might freeze tonight!! Good thing I got busy in the shop yesterday. I also went to Clark’s for some secondary lumber. It must have been my lucky day Saturday!! When I arrived at Clark’s, first thing ...

Tool Mod #4: Making new chisel handles

12-10-2010 10:01 PM by swirt | 6 comments »

A week or so back I posted the end results of my venture into making new chisel handles for my old socket chisels here. With the promise that I would show the method I used. So here is the method I used in making new socket chisel handles with octagonal flats. I made a template to mark out the lengths I needed. I found it easier to get repeatability with a flat template than by holding the model handle up to the blank on the lathe. I then use calipers and a pencil to determine the d...

My First Real Attempt at a project. A shaker end Table #4: The Table Tops!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

12-09-2010 04:05 AM by therookie | 6 comments »

This is the first of the two table tops that I have to do. I used a tounge and grove joint and have the first one in the clamps. The first table top. The next table top layed out to show joints. The toungs on the center board. I thought it would look better if the center board had the tounges only. The grove of the left table edges. The right is the exact same thing, just with it on the other side.

My First Real Attempt at a project. A shaker end Table #1: Kind of Commission #1

12-05-2010 03:07 AM by therookie | 1 comment »

Well in all reality me building my new workbench is going to have to wait. The reason that I am saying this is just because of the cost and I could possibley have my very first commission. When I say this I am talking about my local furniture shop is going to put a table that I am planning on making in their shop on consignment for me and help me get my name out there. When I talked to the owner of the shop, he said that if this peice looks really good to him and he can sell it and still make...

Tool Mod #3: New Chisel Handles

12-02-2010 11:18 PM by swirt | 12 comments »

So after a bit of practice and getting use to my Bungee Lathe, I finally completed my goal to get get some good handles on my old socket chisels. I patterned the handle off of the handle that is on my Witherby firmer chisel (third from the top)I made them just a wee bit longer (I don’t like it when my pinky hangs off the end of the handle) and put some octagonal flats around the main section of the body. Why Octagonal flats? A picture is worth a thousand words: I used cherry, ma...

Project Preview

My next project is ambitious! Here’s an in-progress shot of the back of a mission style desk made of red oak. The kicker? The middle of the desk tilts up to become a drafting table with ratcheting positions! Skill I’m learning this project? Doweling pieces together. (Though this will mostly be pocketholes) structure is complete. Currently working on sanding, then finishing. Definitely looking for advice on finishing red oak. This will be a heavy-use piece, so the finish need...

The New Workbench #1: Description of Bench

11-26-2010 07:42 PM by therookie | 6 comments »

So I started getting into woodworking and bought a hand plane. So as soon as I got home I wanted to use it, so I put a peice of wood in my vise and started planeing. Five minutes later, my bench was four feet farther forward than it originally started. So I moved it back and kept going. Well I have done that for the past year and a half, and have decided enough is enough. So while I was in school I designed a Work Bench. Here are the specs on the bench:1. The bench is four feet deep, six feet...
