Steam Bending #3: Steam Bending Trout Fishing Nets: Shaping and Finishing

10-18-2012 02:11 AM by Retsof | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted my last update on this project and I’ve made a lot of progress. Once I got the basic shaping and sanding done, I had to stop until I found the net bags that I wanted to use on the frames. As of this week, I have everything I need to finish the nets, so here are some more photos to show you what I’ve done so far: Here is net #2 after bending, but before glue up. This photo gives a good look at how I pegged my circles to the melamine ba...

End table for wife's room #1: Bases cut and one assembled.

10-16-2012 02:33 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 10 comments »

I’m working on the companion end tables to the pentagon cocktail table. The top will be solid oak with Brazilian Cherry surrounding it. It’s nice to work on an easy project for a change. Gluing and fastening the base was a one hour job as opposed to a 5 hour job. All the wood is cut and ready to be assembled. I hopethey turn out nice even though they will be fairly basic (and small).

Evolution of my router planer #8: Tweakin' it again. Version 2.1

10-15-2012 11:56 PM by TZH | 11 comments »

Didn’t know whether to post here in this blog or in the walnut tv stand blog. So here it is. Found I had to tweak my router planer a bit more in order for it to work as well as I wanted it to work. The slabs I’m doing right now were too long for the regular planer, so had to get out the really long rails once again. Problem with the setup I had already used was the sled didn’t ride the rails as nice or as easy as I’d hoped they would, even with using some wheels/cas...

Handcut Dovetail Jewelry Box

10-11-2012 09:35 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 15 comments »

This week I share with you a decorative box which features hand cut dovetail joints. This box is made of Mahogany and Pecan and its center piece being a Spalted Pecan Panel Lid. I am no authority on dovetails joints so I don’t go into a lot of detail on making hand cut dovetail joints. There are a lot of training videos and materials out there to reference off of. I used some of the pecan Which I had milled from free logs delivered to me by a tree service. When I re sawe...

Cocktail table for my wife's room. #4: Base is built!!

10-08-2012 12:58 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 16 comments »

I built the base over the weekend. I kinda wish I had gone a little thicker on the wood. Be that as it may, I like it. I cut all the wood 1.25 square. Of course when I tried the cross braces up against the legs I found an error in the thickness. I knew that ! ;) I have no idea why I didn’t think of it. Glue up was a nightmare. I leaned a huge lessons including this one: “Sometimes you have to make a jig!!! I am mostly out of the odd ball shapes business for a while but in the f...

After two more surgeries and almost a year, I am getting back to the shop to start woodworking again. Last year I made a “quilted cutting board” and have a few people offer to buy it, but I have no idea what to charge someone for this type of CB. If anybody that sells CB’s could help me I would appreciate it. It is 12×18 x 1-3/8 thk and made from Black Walnut;Sugar Maple;Shedua;Yellowheart;Goncalo Alves;Santos Mahogany;Paduck. It took me two weeks to finish.
