Improved Workbench #3: Top, Legs, Stretchers, and a little Assembly.

05-10-2011 05:28 PM by Brian024 | 4 comments »

In this part, I glue up the main portion of the top, that sucker is heavy. I also mill the parts for the legs and stretchers, lay them out and cut the core mortise and tenon joinery.

Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib #3: Surface Planing

05-08-2011 08:54 PM by Will Stokes | 4 comments »

In the past I’ve tried to do something new in every project, a new type of joinery, using a new tool, pattern routing, etc. This is probably one of the first real projects in a while that I’ve made a conscious decision not to do that (because this way the project will be easier and go more smoothy, right? :-) ) That said, I can’t help but try out a few new techniques to better accomplish the same steps I’m familiar with along the way. Last time it was using the jig-saw...

Wedding Clock #3: Making Panels

04-25-2011 12:31 AM by kenn | 3 comments »

It’s time to glue up the panels that are needed. I’m making a frame and panel as the back of the clock that will consist of 2 panels stacked on top of each other, held in place by the 3 horizontal rails and 2 vertical stiles. So I’ll need 2 panels for the back. Here’s one of those. Note the carpenter’s triangle that I use to keep the parts aligned. I have already glued the bottom two pieces together but we’ll walk through the rest of making this one. ...

Picture frame profiles

04-13-2011 05:53 AM by devann | 5 comments »

I was checking out some picture frames that spunwood has on the site and ask to see some profiles. My request was granted so now it’s my turn. I went out to the shop and took these pictures. Hope that this helps those of us that don’t have molding cutters see another way to do it. This one is weathered cedar and a piece of redwood cut with a cove bit on the routertable and a piece of longleaf pine with a rabbet cut making the inside of the frame. Here I used ipe with sedona ...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #2: Routing Template, Sanding

04-12-2011 08:07 AM by superstretch | 2 comments »

Tonight I was finally able to use the 1” flush trim bit I got at Lowes the other day and trim back the edge of the shelf top to the template. With the template removed: Finally, after getting the edges sanded and the rounded profile made more round (with my new Rikon 1” belt/5” disk sander), the top/edges/ends sanded with 400 grit, and a quick wet down (to raise grain and get some of the dust out of the walnut grain): Next up is making final cuts to the back...

Easy Shop Table Top

04-08-2011 04:47 AM by Lockwatcher | 4 comments »

I am posting this as an add-on to my Easy Shop Table. On some of my shop tables I use an MDF top that is integrated (flush) with the top frame. On others (such as my router table) I left the top frame open, and added my router table top. That is the case with the add-on top featured here. I recently acquired some large coated MDF panels. I am not sure what it is coated with, but it is very smooth (different than Melamine). These panels were previously a counter top or shelf assembly...

Episode 87 Pencil Holders

04-07-2011 09:59 PM by kosta | 9 comments »

This is the first real HD video I have put out. This video is a much higher quality than any other video I have put out. In this episode I build maple pencil holders. I started out with making the bases which have a round over profile on each side. Then I used my tablesaw to re saw a piece of 3/4 maple to use for the box that sits on the base.

My "Bucket List" #4: Segmant 3: Finally finished with the table.

04-07-2011 08:06 PM by therookie | 4 comments »

Well I can cross the table off my bucket list. I am extremley happy with the way it turned out for me being a novice woodworker and all. Here is the completed table with the carvings and the finish put on. Now I was going to carve the pecans in but I thought they would show up better if I burned them in so that is what I did. When I was making the center pedestal, I thought of trying to turn one but decided against it because I have never turned anything. So I made a Hexagon Bas...
