Coffee Table - Red Oak & Padauk #3: Legs and Apron Completed

05-01-2012 05:58 PM by Mosquito | 4 comments »

Right, just realized I have more pictures and work done, and haven’t updated this yet… Not a whole lot of an update I guess. I was able to finish the mortises in the legs, and got some pocket hole screws drilled and fastened the legs and apron pieces together. I also used my restored #7c to take off an inch of the width on the table top, to get it down to the correct width, and then cut an inch or so off the end (crosscut). I don’t have a picture of it, but I also put a c...

Roubo Hybrid Bench from start to finish #2: What I got from what I had

05-16-2012 01:43 PM by Jamie Speirs | 5 comments »

Well the thing I love about wood especially an orphan piece like this one Is that it can only get better, I hope :) It looks huge and if it were not for the flaws It would make a big bench Ok, it aint going to be a 6’ bench If I could only use the full piece I like the idea of one side being rustic The rot on the right hand corner means that I’m going to have to get a much narrower tha the 18” that I hoped for Well I did not s...

Some past projects, #3: The Darbin Orvar stool

04-29-2015 05:51 AM by Silverhill | 1 comment »

I follow Darbin Orvar on Youtube and built the stool that she featured last year. i even tried something new to me, distressing a painted finish. I used the leftovers of the Teal Green bench that I made previously, and top coated it with leftover color from a kitchen project. I sanded some “worn” places on some of the edges for a used appearance. We were invited to the second birthday of a friend’s child and did not know what to give her. it came to me in a flash! The sto...

Garage Tool Cabinets #2: Cabinet glue up

08-06-2013 05:35 PM by Parsimonia | 0 comments »

One carcass is glued up. One block under the lower shelf moved under the clamp slightly. I should have shot a few nails to hold it in place like Sommerfeld recommends, (and had done before), so one back corner of the bottom shelf is just slighty lower, but OIWN (Only I Will Notice(!)). The lower shelf tongue goes into the face frame slot, but the sides are just supported by blocks underneath on both sides. Yet again, I chose to ignore instructions and it bit me in the a$$. I decided...

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...
