Tool chest update #6: Two more being test fitted

02-06-2014 11:09 PM by Dan Krager | 8 comments »

This is a project that has been on the list for quite awhile. As shown here, two more chests are being test fitted. Things seem to fit nicely and will help to get clutter from underfoot. One thing I learned is that the vintage saws I bought for restoration and use should have been measured! Handles take up a LOT of length. They will fit only because of slots cut in the top! Handles and finish need to be applied, but that will wait until warmer weather. If I finished them now, I’d b...

The Craftsman's Path #22: Queen Anne Side Table - Cutting tenons on the aprons

01-14-2008 05:55 AM by Mark Mazzo | 9 comments »

Well, after milling the stock and making a new tenoning jig for the table saw I was ready to cut the tenons on the aprons of the table. The jig was worth the effort and I was able to do a first dry fit of most the table parts. There’s more info in this post on my blog along with pictures of the new jig and the process. Take a look and thanks for reading!

Simple, Useful, Free

09-03-2012 04:59 AM by TDog | 4 comments »

No I’m not marketing. I’m just amazed at how it’s not the fancy pieces or most expensive pieces that tend to get the most use. I think by far many expensive and or “fancy” if I may, pieces of furniture or any item for that matter does not see as much use as more common items. (Duh you say) :) I am convinced that there is not much peace of mind to be found in in objects that are almost “roped off” in our homes, offices, or studies, workshops even i...

My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #7: Carving Roses wasn't very Rosie!

01-22-2008 10:06 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 11 comments »

The first Rose handle I carved, didn’t give me any trouble, but I wasn’t satisfied with the light color of the sapwood. So I decided to go with the darker heartwood. I cut some rose patterns for a couple of Roses. I started carving a couple of flower petals, & snap! the flower broke off of the 3/8” stem. So I decided to go with a 1/2’’ stem, & the same thing happened, SNAP! The burly heartwood is kind of brittle. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

Workbench Build #37: Finishing up the Toolwell... All downhill from here.. I think..

08-10-2013 09:34 PM by Airframer | 12 comments »

We last ended with the second dovetail and the end caps mortised for the tool well ends. After a week of no progress in the shop I finally had some time this weekend to get something done. To start I needed to cut the remaining dovetails so I would know where the dados should stop to not be seen on the out side of the bench. I am sooooo glad this is over with. I would love to say I got better with each one but I really didn’t. I did learn something new on each one but the mista...

Shop Tools #3: Chisels

05-31-2007 06:41 AM by WayneC | 4 comments »

I spent a little time in the shop this evening working on putting some of the old chisels I have back into working condition. I have a newer set of Marples that I normally use, but I am trying to get sets of older chisels together. For example, I want a set of mortice chisels and perhaps a set of the old Stanley 750s. I’m giving them a light cleaning and removing any rust, regrinding edges, and sharpening. The handles are still loose. I want to get some measurements and add them ...

Desk build #5: Nurses desk, finished

09-02-2009 10:19 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

The desk is finally finished. My niece wants to stain and poly it herself so I’m done with it at this point. Back up to any of the other blogs for background info on this build. The second picture shows the drawer open and the keyboard tray extended after the front cover is pulled down. A magnetic latch holds it in a closed position. Next build: believe it or not, a pellet stove box to hold stove pellets, made to look like a couch end table. Hmm.

Shaker Night Stand #10: Fill my eyes ... with that double vision!

03-08-2010 02:29 AM by NBeener | 27 comments »

So … among my 3,000 eye problems is intermittent double vision. But … I don’t think that’s the problem, here. I seek the expert counsel of the venerated and revered LumberJocks: IS IT just me …. ?? Tenons are better the second time around!! Incidentally, I occasionally do more than just clean my shop :-) Cheers, All!
