Built in E-center, Yala #2: The Skeleton

11-21-2011 01:47 PM by topcat | 1 comment »

I’ve been at it since Thursday, gathering materials and and being a “wild wood whacker.” This was what it looked like at the end of Friday;From Yala, Hakim and Michelle Since then I’ve been curring shelves, drawer parts, countertop and shelf edging. Gluing and screwing and jointing and joining. In 4 days, I’ve put in about 40 hours. Today is more assembly! Hopefully I can have it ready for a primer and first coat by tomorrow morning!

Work In Progress #2: Canasta Part Two

11-20-2011 06:11 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

So unfortunately I had not taken many pictures during the process of hand planing the curved door as well as cutting the dovetails for the carcass. I wanted the door to be thin, very thin, which ultimately led to many, many problems. I ended up with a final thickness of a bout 1/4 inch. While I was milling the door I did not have the wood move on me much at all, the Avodire I ended up getting was so incredibly stable I could do almost anything to it and it would not warp. The one thing ...

Work In Progress #1: Canasta

11-20-2011 12:54 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

These images document some of the process of my most recent completed project which was a reliquary dedicated to my Mother. The requirement for this project was to design and make a Reliquary utilizing a door and a drawer. Our warm up project was to fit a drawer with half blind dovetails to a previously made carcass of MDF by our professor Rich Tannen. This was my first real go at dovetails. Some of the proportions were off as to what I wanted but I was pleased with the craftsmans...

Railroad Spike Mortise Chisel

11-15-2011 05:05 AM by bobasaurus | 7 comments »

I managed to get hold of a couple neat old railroad spikes, and thought maybe I’d try turning one into a chisel. I know they are made of really soft steel that’s not really suited for tool making, but the novelty of the idea was too great to resist. First I removed the many decades of rust using a wire wheel on my grinder, then brought the freshly shined spike into work with me. Taking some time in the evening, I made good use of the machine shop at work to mill flat three of t...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #1: FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT!

11-12-2011 01:08 AM by StumpyNubs | 63 comments »

Maybe “LOVE” is a strong word. But I’m really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It’s been over a year in development, and And I’d like to think it is a pretty unique format! Here’s how it works… The show is designed to have the feel of a single camera “reality” type show. It is meant to be a glimpse into our workshop as if you were just stopping in...

New Workbench #4: Rising Dovetails

10-29-2011 02:49 AM by Letorix | 3 comments »

Well I have about 4 hours in cutting this out and I still have 1/32 or so bow in the faces. I sure hope the pride I may feel for these joints will be worth it. I’d love to hear how others would have done this quicker and more accurately. This hard maple has dulled my cheap cabinet makers rasp….man this is tough slow work!

A Peruvian Walnut Cradle #2: Now we are Rocking and Rolling!

10-26-2011 06:20 PM by jusfine | 3 comments »

After a number of failed attempts on the table saw to match the angles perfectly, I realized I could make the cuts simpler and more accurate with the track saw, and so I set the angle at 10 degrees for each piece, with the blade tilted at 1.5 degrees (which was needed to keep the shape square). I still do not fully understand why, but more about that in the final chapter. Next I set the fingers on the jig and marked the center and proceeded to cut the pins. With a 24̶...

Workbench #3: Leg assemblies

09-22-2011 06:36 PM by CrossGrain (Josh) | 6 comments »

Last time, I had finished assembly of the benchtop but had neglected to get any pictures of it right-side up. I moved it onto the bed in the spare bedroom near my work area to make room for sizing up the leg stock. I purchased poplar for the base of the bench since it is relatively inexpensive. I read something recently about poplar not being a good choice for a workbench base (not sure what the reasoning was), but I have already purchased it and done much of the sizing of parts from it. I...
