Without a WW bench, would straightening wood work with two clamps to hold a board?

1525 days ago by TopamaxSurvivor | 26 comments »

I need to straighten out an eight foot piece of oak. I needed to take a ¾ inch bow out of the board. I have no joiner. I clamped a straight edge on the oak and cut it with my skill saw. I do not have a wood working bench to hold it for planning either. I used one clamp to hold it vertically and another clamp to hold that clamp. Placing the whole she-bang against a firm object, away we go!! The No. 7 Stanley whipped it out in nothing flat ;-))

You can never....

  …have enough clamps. Every woodworker in the world knows this.   Previous collection I certainly don’t have enough; not even close.   The Problem Recently, in an attempt to speed up production in the shop, I’ve noticed the lack of clamps was slowing me down significantly. Even though I was initially adverse to working on more than one project at a time, it’s quickly became necessary. More clamps So this morning, after a nice relaxing b...

Here is a practical application.I was actually building another jig and needed to slot some small pieces for adjustments. I posted a similar jig last week. I needed another. This one is tweaked a bit. I planed down a scrap of Mahogany I had laying around. (Sorry—no Bubinga) The Mahogany matched my sled ——if you&...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #6: Finding shop time in a busy schedule -or- Making slats & cutting pieces

1553 days ago by sras | 10 comments »

The next step in this project is making the curved slats for the back of the stool. The process is the same as for the curved parts with a couple exceptions. First the pieces for each set of slats are cut from two blocks. These blocks were next to each other when cut from the large stock. Instead of marking with a saw cut as I did last time, I used a permanent marker. By angling one stripe across both blocks, I am able to keep the strips in order. The total number of stripes tells me w...

Adirondack Chair & Table #8: The Final Installement: The Adirondack Side-Table

1561 days ago by jcontract | 2 comments »

I’ve been working for a few weeks now, a few hours a night getting the side-table built. It wasn’t that difficult to do. But it was fun nonetheless. Assembling the base of the table. The legs go on with glue and screws from the back. The most difficult part of the whole assembly was getting the spacing correct. The plans called for a distance of 18 1/4”. So it was a matter of getting the 2 ends of the top to run parallel at 18 1/4” while maintaining th...
