Butterfly Dining Table #8: Designing and Installing the Butterfly Leaf

12-31-2015 04:55 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

This time I mark the layout for how the butterfly hinge is going to be installed. Then I use a steel rod and bushings to create the hinge mechanism. This all gets installed into the support system of the table so the leaf will store under the table when it is not in use. I also show how I add the splines to the edges, and a cool way to hide the end grain of the splines. Then I level the table halves, then the leaf to the rest of the top. Almost complete! As always, I welcome your questio...

With the holidays over and the house starting to return to normal I took the time to edit some more video on the essential oil cabinet I made for my son for Christmas. A lot of hand work over a lot of days, and a long time to edit it too. View on YouTube

Walnut slab leftovers? #4: Got a little more done...

12-17-2015 02:55 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Before I got tired of fighting things. IF I got too angry in the shop…..time to quit for the day. better luck the next day, right? Anyway, I had the aprons to mill into something usable….I hope. Ends needed cut at an angle ~@ 15 or so degrees…closer to 10, maybe. I used the bandsaw to cut the ends…..too much stuff in the way to use the mitrebox…plan so far is to splay the legs out a bit, almost like a Tavern table. Was trying to figure out how ...

Toy building #4: The Concrete Pump basic truck

12-07-2015 03:41 PM by johnstoneb | 6 comments »

About the end of August I decided I had better get started on building something or would have nothing for Christmas. I started the layout and cutting material for the build. I had resawed a bunch of maple for drawers on my toolbox build so had quite a bit of maple about 5/16 thick that I planed down to 1/4” and cut up some walnut. I was just getting ready to start glueup when a friend called and wanted to know if I wanted to run the Main Salmon. That was a no brainer of course I wa...

wrapping things up

12-04-2015 04:23 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

And maybe some finish on this table? Went out and bought a few supplies today…..a pint of gloss Poly, a brush for it, and pads for the table’s feet.. Pads for the feet? Yep, I try to add these things to the tables I make. It helps save the ends of the legs, and it saves the flooring. Just simple nail in things. I just center them in each leg. A few whacks with a hammer to drive them home. Before I did this little chore, I had to make six plugs. Have a Veritas ...

What to do with a Walnut slab.. #4: Getting the last of the mortises done..

12-01-2015 05:29 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Well, since the last time I was here…...Got a glue up somehow done. Test fit wasn’t too hateful…..tried to clamp it up with glue on the tenons…... Well after letting that mess cure for a day or so…... Did you ever have to use a hammer while clamping up a glue up? One Pipe clamp kept trying to rotate right back off….Add a c clamp to put a stop to that. Had to rotate the second one, for a better “grip”. Then had to add the third...
