Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #7: While visions of perfection dance in my head

06-28-2010 04:01 AM by sras | 11 comments »

I deal with correcting mistakes instead! It has been quite a while since my last post, but I AM still working on this project. In addition to regular life, we have had a week long vacation, business trips (including 2 weeks in China), a family illness and preparing for RAGBRAI . The shop time has been hard to come by. I figured this would be a good time to confess and share how I am dealing with this round of unexpected issues. Dull Bandsaw Blade I started to shape one side of the...

Tool Mod #1: Handscrew Dogs

06-15-2010 06:10 PM by swirt | 19 comments »

If you have 3/4” bench dog holes on your bench and a couple of handscrew clamps then in 10 minutes you can merge the two into a very flexible and powerful clamping system that works with small boards, long boards and even irregular pieces. I’ll let the photos tell the story … and keep in mind, the modification to the handscrew does not prevent you from using it as an ordinary handscrew too. I use them on my workbench and my sawbenches. Clicking on any ...

A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #2: A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #2

06-12-2010 06:12 PM by Bob Simmons | 4 comments »

On the following day after the glue has set, the band clamps are removed. It is time to begin truing up the ring of segments. In order to attain flatness on one of the ring’s edge I’ll lay a segment flat on the bed of the disc sander. It’s important to maintain a 90 degree angle during this operation. Take your time and make sure of accuracy. When the edge is truly flat we can then proceed to the lathe. Now the ring is mounted on the lathe and the opposite edge...

Bench Hook - Versatile shop made clamping device

06-08-2010 09:42 PM by David Craig | 9 comments »

I am sure most wood carvers are familiar with this one, as the bench hook is probably one of the first shop made contraptions relief carvers would make for themselves. I do find them quite useful for any task in which I need both my hands and the piece I am trying to hold down is irregularly shaped, a piece that I don’t want marred, or one that is too small to be effectively held in place by the bench cookies. While I know many woodworkers are already familiar with the contraption, I ha...

Finishing the slats

06-05-2010 10:35 PM 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

06-04-2010 09:24 AM 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

06-04-2010 02:55 AM 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...
