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 ...

Southwest Cocktail table #6: Gettin' Leggy

08-05-2013 02:02 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Whew Doggie! It’s hot out there. You may have been through the same thing as me. Glue – clamp – look at the clock – look at the clock – look at the clock…. Either that or you’re gettin’ funky with the pin nailer. Today and Yesterday it was easy to allow for glue dry time. I work out of the garage and the temperature has been a over 100 for a while. I Cut – Glue – Clamp – and run inside to rehydrate. That glue up time was ...

My Summer Vacation at Marc Adams' School #1: I'm Heading Out For Indiana Tomorrow!

07-27-2013 08:35 AM by Tim Roman | 2 comments »

I’ll be hopping in the car and driving out to beautiful Franklin, Indiana tomorrow (Sunday) morning to attend two classes next week at Marc Adams’ School of Woodworking. First, I am in a 6-day long project class in which I will be building an arts-and-crafts style entry table. Then I will take a one-day class on tool sharpening skills. Both classes will be taught by Mike Pekovich of Fine Woodworking Magazine. I’m excited about the opportunity to add to my skills and make...

CC's Book Case #5: The Bowman and The Spearman

07-15-2013 01:22 AM by SquintyPolock | 1 comment »

On my way home from work, the other day, I passed though Grant Park. “The Bowman and The Spearman” sculptures caught my attention. The sculptor did not make the weapons – you have to imagine them. I was inspired to make a bow. http://chicago-outdoor-sculptures.blogspot.com/2007/09/bowman-and-spearman.html A 1/4” piece of scrap oak and some string made a bow (no doubt, Mestrovic would have been impressed). I used a bunch of clamps and some blocks to keep...

Musical Instruments Restoration #7: VIOLIN JIG - The CLAMP for bending

07-06-2013 03:45 PM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

This is the progress for the previous blog I made. Just look at the pictures. The long bolts are pedestals and pins for the clamps. I used the 3 holes to make it standing. It started from a flat steel bar drilled with three holes. Then bended squarely on both ends just enough to be away so that it will accomodate the small ebony piece that will be the push block. A push bolt with a knob was taken from the locking screw of scrapped pedestal. The nut should have been welded ...

handtool workbench #2: starting some planing

07-02-2013 09:05 PM by Tugboater78 | 7 comments »

Started planing down some of the boards for the top. They will be two ~12” wide sections with an ~ 6” gap/well board between. I am leaning towards having the center section removeable, flipped one way it will be level with the other 2 sections, flipped upside down it will sit lower. All ideas are still not set in stone except the 2 sections. One problem i foresee is my lack of good clamps, wish I had the cash for a couple cabinet masters. I may go run the BigBlueBox card up a ...

CC's Book Case #3: Glue Day!

06-30-2013 11:48 PM by SquintyPolock | 2 comments »

It’s been a heck of a June. Two camping trips, a wedding, graduation parties, birthday parties, and needless to say – CC did not get her book case in time for graduation day. Oh well. She didn’t make a big deal. Today, I had some free time. I ripped down some boards and edge glued the top. A bit of sanding will be needed to clean up the faces. I cut and dadoed the plywood about 3 weeks ago and its been sitting in my basement shop during all these family events. A...

Roubo Workbench Build #5: Milling, gluing and making the pieces - Done!

06-30-2013 02:01 AM by Willeh | 4 comments »

Well, finally getting somewhere! After weeks and weeks of milling, gluing, milling, gluing, milling gluing and so on, the parts are finally together! Since my last post, I got all of the leg and stretcher boards milled down, glued up, and planed down to final size, ready to go to start with the joinery and assembly. I also finally got the top together. I decided on doing a wagon vice on the top, and bought the lee valley vice hardware. The 17 boards that make up the top were glued into ...
