DragonFly Harp #7: 1/20/2011 S-L-O-W Going

01-20-2011 11:36 PM by Donna Menke | 11 comments »

Days and days of mostly just staring at the dumb thing wondering why- oh why- things did not meet the way they should. Take a little off here- then a little off there- shoot!- think I took some off the wrong side. This was not the way to go.My micro-plane was going to be my salvation, but it may have created more problems than it fixed.Talk about creative clamping! Trying to get all the angles right and everything where it is supposed to be so that the screws in the base will end up in the ri...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #14: Final assembly of the base

04-01-2015 02:48 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

I was out in the shop/garage at 8am today and didn’t finish until 7pm. I don’t recall taking a lunch break, or any break for that matter, the day just flew by. But I did get a while lot done. Yesterday was all fitting the mortises and tenons. That took all of yesterday and I left it dry fitted together. This morning I had five things to do before I could drill holes for the draw bore joints. I ran the legs across the table saw to chamfer the bottom edges, check the leg v...

Wood Scrap Box #1: Parts and Pieces

01-17-2008 09:19 PM by CutNRun | 4 comments »

Two days before Christmas, my wife casually mentions that she would like a jewelry box. Hmmm, don’t think the timing was very good. Having completed the 2×4 project, I decided to try to put together a jewelry box from the small pieces of wood laying around in my shop. I had a decent amount of 1/2” cherry, some figured maple, some oak, and a small amount of paduk. After spending a few days laying out a design and seeing if I had enough wood, I started cutting and gluing.Th...

My Great-Grandfather’s Lathe Chisels

05-10-2012 09:49 PM by JoshOne | 10 comments »

Last week for my birthday I got a rather remarkable present from my grandparents: my great grandfather’s Craftsman lathe chisels. My great-grandfather died in 1974, well before I met him, and they passed to my grandfather. He is a consummate craftsman and artist and through the early 90s owned a lumber yard in Yardley, PA. I feel tremendously lucky to be from a line of craftsmen and to have inherited the proof. These chisels have now passed to me, and to be honest I’m a little conflict...

Education and torment #2: Red Oak Sandpaper Storage cabinet

01-12-2014 06:44 PM by GeneR | 3 comments »

This cabinet is made from leftover red oak, Luan, birch plywood and plexiglass that I had in my shop. It is approximately 17”T x 7 1/2”W x 6” deep. I would have liked to make it a little taller to handle a couple more shelves and slightly deeper to have been able to recess the back panel. The Box I first sent the oak through the joiner to ensure I had 1 flat square edge. I then cut the board to the proper widths on my table saw then to final lengths on the Miter...

Big wood find #5: The base comes together

02-06-2010 07:01 AM by rtb | 6 comments »

I probably should have updated this about a week ago but the best laid plans of mice….etc . Drilling 5/8 holes through 1 in of white oak 3 in. cherry and an additional 1 in. of red oak is not something that you can whip out in 45 seconds. You are constantly removing the bit to clear the hole of the waste and there are many holes in this base. This assembly is still quite rough and there will be a lot of sanding and planning once its all together. As the above picture sh...

Bedside table, from old barn siding

08-06-2013 12:04 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Had a few pieces of old barn siding in the shop, needing a project to use them in. Wife wanted a small table for beside the bed. Ok, need to find some leg stock. Found a 2×10 maybe twenty inches long. Ripped it into four legs. and planed all the saw marks away. Stashed them away for awhile. Had some Double Dutch 4” barn siding to mill down. Most were split almost right down the middle, and the few that weren’t were cupped badly. Reduced the wide planks ...

Hand Tool School #1: Intro & Semester 1 - Project 1 - Winding Sticks

02-25-2014 09:07 PM by jasonburr | 3 comments »

For those of you unfamiliar with Shannon Rogers, The Renaissance Woodworker & The Hand Tool School, you find out more here: http://www.renaissancewoodworker.com/http://www.handtoolschool.net/ As I have been re-enamoured (is that a word) with woodworking I find myself being drawn more and more to handwork for a few reasons: 1. It does not require a large amount of space. My area is about half of a half of a two car garage. The wife’s car stays in the garage and my truck stay...
