My Workshop #3: Settling Down

06-12-2013 09:35 PM by steliart | 4 comments »

The reason of delaying posting any upgrades on this blog was simply a matter of another shop move.Unfortunately the guy with whom we shared that big space backed-out, so I had to find another space and move on.Finally I did found a space good enough for my needs and settled down to set-up my small workshop. The space has 2 levels, at the ground level there’s the workshop,a small kitchen and a WC, the top level is mainly converted to a paint booth and drying room. The total space is 70m2 or ab...

My Ultimate Workbench Build #5: Joint, plane and repeat....

07-16-2011 07:54 AM by RS Woodworks | 4 comments »

Well, with the boards for the top cut to rough length and rough thickness, and the general layout for the top decided on, it’s time to start squaring up the lumber and getting ready to glue the top all together. I started out with jointing one face and one edge flat and square on the 6” general jointer. I set up a roller stand to the exact height on both the infeed and outfeed side. It’s time consuming, but squaring all the lumber is probably the single most important step i...

Southwest end tables #3: Grumble

09-06-2013 09:59 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 6 comments »

Some lessons are learned the hard way. I bought a warped piece of Sapelle. I mean really warped. I thought that the little tiny pieces I needed would not be affected by a warped piece. Good lord was I ever wrong! Here’s the sorrier news. I didn’t ask the store for a price break. I just said with a real confident aire “No problem at all! It will work just fine!” Every single gap in the top of the table was due to the fact that I could not make precise cuts to the sev...

Having the right tools

12-13-2011 08:05 PM by Nighthawk | 11 comments »

Those few of you that follow my mere attempts to be a wood worker will know I have fun doing it no matter how the project turns out. Whether it works out great or an failed attempt. Or whether it is a biggish project like the coffin or a small one like the cribbage board. Having the right tools for the job can make things so much easier, yes I will agree with that statement. However as we all know you don’t always have the right tool or all the tools you require or want to have in yo...

Outdoor Furniture #11: Patio Planter Boxes - Continued

06-17-2012 05:23 PM by Retsof | 0 comments »

I’ve made a lot of progress on this project, but I’ve been so busy since the kids got out of school for the summer, that I haven’t had much computer time lately to update my blog. Here I have the three piece legs glued up and I’m testing the fit of the tenons. In this photo, I’ve finished the sanding all the parts, have the tenons glued into the legs, and have the panels installed. Now they are starting to look like planters. One of the changes I ma...

A Sliding Door #6: On the glue

11-08-2014 01:41 AM by Mark Kornell | 4 comments »

Started the glue-up yesterday, finished it today. Yesterday: I started by checking the fit for all the pieces. First up, the panels. And they don’t fit, which was expected. The groove has round ends while the panel is square: A few ways to fix this, but I picked up the mortise chisel and mallet to square off the ends of the grooves. The panels fit now The panel was a pretty tight fit, but I can address that later. Glued tenons into the first rail And then the rail into...
