One of those days

09-11-2009 01:56 AM by Martina | 15 comments »

Ok – so as most of you know I have picked up the woodworking bug, and a big thanks to a special someone – I have recently grown with power tools! I love the tools and the more I get the more I woodwork… it has become a nightly thing that I enjoy. Until last night! So here is how the night went:I left work around 8… Stop at the local Home Depot – needed glue, and something to clean the stainer off my favorite paint brush – any suggestions? I almost bou...

Solid Pine 2x12 Speaker Cabinet #2: Dry Fit & Glue-Up Pictures

02-26-2011 03:23 AM by Michael J. Moore | 1 comment »

So I picked up 8 Jet Clamps then I returned 4, and ordered 4 Jorgensen Clamps. There was no shortage of shipping issues but after 3 returns, 2 delivery exceptions, and 6 different clamps going back and forth either because of missing parts or being damaged I finally got it all worked out and glued up my first speaker cabinet build. Here’s some eye candy… I used my new Woodpeckers Box Clamp to square it up as well.Fun stuff.

Checkerboard Project #6: Back On Track

01-25-2013 06:49 AM by Retsof | 4 comments »

I gave up on finishing this checkerboard project in time for Christmas, and then I was out of commission with a bad chest cold for another three weeks. Once I was back to 100%, I got to work finishing my White Oak Bookcase project. Now it’s time I got this one back on track. The last thing I had done on this project was to glue up all the squares for the top. I did half of the board at a time and then used my biscuit joiner to join the two sections together. I put in some time ...

first strake in a strip kayak

07-10-2008 10:36 AM by psolver1 | 2 comments »

wow! 1:30 am i knew “i’m not going to bed until i get at least one plank on” was not a healthy statement. that comes from lots of experience. however, i just glued the first plank in place. with 16 station molds and two stem molds my imagination was stretched to come up with roughly 40 clamping positions. a combination of lead drafting ducks, bungee chords, c clamps, and spring clamps are holding the first strake in place. now the worst part about working late. going ba...

Bridal chest #1: Prep / glue-up

07-18-2014 06:46 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

My youngest daughter is getting married in September. I’ve decided long ago that i’d make each (I’ve got two) a bridal chest when that time came. Well it’s here and I’m doing it. I’ve made blanket chests before but they’ve been made with raised panels. This one is much simpler. Almost Shaker in nature for the design. It will have large finger or box joints at the corners. I think I’ll make a simple jig for my router to accomplish that. It will b...

Nightstand #2: Implementation

02-01-2015 10:19 AM by Nate66 | 0 comments »

I started by using 1/2” birch veneer ply to build the sides. I cut three 1/2” dados along each side 1/4” deep for the shelves and base and the cut the shelves to measure and glued the all in place. The top I lapped over 1/2” on each side and 1” to the front to accommodate the door and drawer fronts.

Another pile of pine..

03-29-2015 10:26 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

and maybe another table to build?Piled up the “supplies” on the bench. Found a couple other boards as well A couple short 2×4s (legs?) and some assorted 1xs. Those long things in back? Are a couple 3/4” x 6” x 120-1/2” planks of pine. Took the cleaned up 2×4 x36” out of the vise, cleared the benchtop of the rest. Placed the Gray 2×4 x 48” in the vise to joint both edges. Will do the rest of it after it is cut down to le...

Grandpa's table #1: I have an idea

08-25-2008 11:38 PM by mcoyfrog | 2 comments »

Not sure how to start this, i’ve never done a blog before and i’m not the best at writing/speaking LOL. So here goes. Many years ago my grandpa made a coffee table for us, i’ve been trying to figure it out and my best guess is between the years of 1972-1974. It has passed through all our family at one point or another, but the last several years its been in storage because its a hard table to make work in ones living area. You see its very large about 6’ long to be ...

Old Clamps #2: Two more ebay finds while window shopping

05-25-2013 10:17 AM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

I always enjoy seeing slightly different designs in old bar clamps. These two were found on eBay. The top one looks like the seller put the moveable stops on the wrong way though. Wait, Stops? Plural? I guess the seller really doesn’t know and put two stops on one clamp. The bottom one reminds me quite a lot of the pair I made a while ago. If I could make wooden threads, maybe I’d go into manufacturing these, aging them and putting them up. Shipping would be murder, plus most...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #12: Grinder Stand or Piece of Furniture?

11-30-2013 01:36 AM by PhilBello | 0 comments »

Having a shortage of bench space, I decided that I needed to create a space for the bench grinder, and not wanting to damage any walls in the apartment, I decided a dedicated Grinder Stand was called for, but not away floor storage space. After hunting for a while, I found what I was looking for on Woodstore.net it hardly reduced the floor space at all. To make this you only need half a sheet of 3/4” plywood, I used pine, as it was cheaper, and some scraps of birch ply for the top...
