Finishing the slats

1518 days ago by Blinky | 3 comments »

Another piece of scrap has befallen my assorted blades, and has now become the slats for the bench. It was a large hunk of Doug Fir or Pine. It was originally going to be a large slab bench, but I decided it would be too large & unwieldy. It was 3” x 12” x 8’ – warped, twisted, split, cupped, weather-worn and worm-eaten; beautiful!Now it’s 6 slats 2 1/4” w x 1 1/2” h x 52” long. The previously mentioned character charms still exist, just...

In The Beginning #3: And We're Off

1519 days ago by Crushgroovin | 1 comment »

Never one to let the moss grow beneath my feet and un-dauntingly ambitious I started my next project tonight. I owe my wife big time for being 1) Amazing! 2) being very encouraging throughout the venture into woodworking. 3) oh and putting up with me for the 8 years I spent in an alcoholic stupor. She is going to culinary school right now to become a pastry chef. Our first project was a decorative cutting board we gave her for Mother’s Day. The next day she mentioned she would...

"Don't Stress" glue ups

1520 days ago by dustbunny | 21 comments »

I got so tired of fighting with glueing up cutting boards.Is everything lining up ? Is there slipping ? One clamp at a time !!So I spotted these flooring jacks in the HF catalog...and I began to wonder.I bet that I could use these to clamp cutting boards together in hopefully one shot.I haven’t tried it yet, but I will let everyone know if there are problems.I am thinking this is going to work just fine.I may need to add regular clamps at the corners, we’ll see. I did h...

1521 days ago by degoose | 12 comments »

I spent a very happy day in my workshop today….mostly I jointed, thicknessed and ripped lots of timber… Purple Heart, Silver Ash, Silky Oak…[aka Lacewood] and Tasmanian Blackwood… I used an Incra TSLS 32 to rip fine strips for accents.. More woven pattern projects in the wind. It is such a pleasure to work in the new clean workshop… I moved the 3 metre machine around to make more room to play on the 2 metre machine… and moved the mitre saw… now I hav...

Patio / Deck Bench #1: Medicine cabinet on hold - Bench slips ahead

1528 days ago by Blinky | 3 comments »

I set aside the me I decided to use some scraps of Ipé from the deck that was built a couple years ago to finally build that bench, to sit on top of said deck. Here is a sketchup snapshot of part of the design; And a few of work in progress. I cut the butt-swoop in the top of the ‘ribs’ on the bandsaw. I cut the dadoes in the rail to fit the seat supports w/a router, then drilled holes for walnut dowels.I tried use the best SS screws I had, but the 1st one snapped, and ...

Going, going, gone...

1530 days ago by Kerry Drake | 5 comments »

Sunday I went to my first auction.  My wife spied an article in the local paper about an estate auction being held nearby and part of the estate was a wood working shop! The auctions started at 10:00, and I didn’t get there until nearly 9:45, so I didn’t have as much chance to walk around and scope things out as I would have liked. I got a little electric sharpener (by craftsman) for $10.00.  This will be good enough to hollow grind a set of junkie bench chisels, b...

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

1548 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 ;-))
