Dining Room Table...BY Suppertime?

381 days ago by bandit571 | 6 comments »

Yup. had a pair of legs already tapered on two sides. Got the other two legs done by noonish. Tapered with handplanes only, mind you. Set up a “work space” such as i have. A washer & dryer served as a staging area And laid out a few toys, er tools. That little piece of paper? THAT is all the “plans” I had, just the measurements for the aprons. Made tenons on one of the short aprons ( 24-1/2” long 1×4) so I would have a pattern...

Commisions #3: Mirror Frame #3

2248 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 9 comments »

Well over the last two days i have been able to really get some good solid work done on my mirror frames. first i was able to mill all the lumber to final width. then it was time to cut the piece. i don’t have a long miter bed with a stop block so i used double stick tape to hold the rough identical pieces together to give me exactly the same piece. the first picture is putting the tape on and the second is all the piece cut to final length. Then i cut the groove in th...

1st fiddle by ROY D #7: carving top

1898 days ago by roy | 4 comments »

here is the start of my “attempt” at carving a fiddle top. I am using basswood. i got some for 75 cents a board foot. thought i would see how it went with cheap wood before i used expensive wood. fiddle #2 will get the good stuff if this one turns out good. this will give me some practice on carving and if i mess it up it don’t matter. http://picasaweb.google.com/roydahlgren/FirstFiddle#

Baby Cradle #3: Shaping the bottom

1728 days ago by Bob Giovannini | 3 comments »

This next step involved shaping the bottom of the base. After scribing a line 2 1/8 inches in, I used a circular saw set to a depth of 7/8 inch. The next time I do something like this I will make the cuts closer together to make removal easier. Then with chisel (ok – for all parents and in-laws reading this, which should be 4 – a nice set of chisels for your son would be a great way to show you care about your soon to be new grandchild :) ) and mallet, I cleared the bottom. I ...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #12: Last class of Level 2 ...and probably for the rest of the year:-(

1244 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

Well the course is over; I learned a lot and had a lot of fun. I suspect Ryan learned a lot about conducting a classroom and managing the administrative types at the College. I really enjoyed using all the tools and the great setup of their shop. Its given me a lot of ideas to incorporate into my shop, a bench, vise and mortising attachment for my drill press are all pretty high priorities now…just after getting the new tablesaw. I didn’t manage to finish my project yet but ...

Dog Bowl #1: Jersey's dog bowl

2314 days ago by kenn | 1 comment »

Here is the beginning of my current project. I got a new puppy Dec 1. We named her Jersey in honor of those great Jersey rockers – Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi. She’s big enough now to to have her own elevated dog bowl. I’ve cut the cherry stock from left over pieces of the kitchen table I have posted. Everything is squared up and I am ready to lay out the dovetails that will hold it together. I’m a tails first guy, so that will be next. She only gets a food...

READY TO START MY WORSE CHALLENGE #1: DRAGONFLY

312 days ago by Jim Earl | 7 comments »

Ok Here goes. I have put this off for about two weeks. It has taken me about 9 hours to get it to this point. People thinks that the woodburning they done in high schools is same as what I do. After selecting the picture there is hours pending trying to get the picture just right to transfer everything over to the piece of wood. after you put it on the wood I spend a lot of time going over and over to get the right depth. so with out further ado I give you the DAGON FLY. (OK I AM GOING...

Wedding Clock #2: Wedding Clock, The Start & Story

1187 days ago by kenn | 6 comments »

Sorry Lumberjocks, this was intended to be part one. I’ve got it straight from here on. My eldest daughter is getting married! They got engaged Summer, 2010 and the wedding is planned for Sept. 17, 2011. I told them I’d like to make them something special as a wedding from my wife and me. This is what we all agreed would be a great gift. Never mind that I haven’t done anything in Arts & Crafts Style and that this is my reference, Bruce Johnson’s book on The ...
