Redwood Kayak

07-09-2008 09:42 AM by psolver1 | 1 comment »

So you trim a few fruit trees and you wind up with a pile of reclaimed Redwood from California army base structures. The math is wierd but it worked out. This pile will be a strip built kayak. Now my laziness has “bit me in the buttocks” I bought a mold set from CLC. Not impressed., but you pay a hundred bucks for a set of molds and unfortunately you get a hundred dollars worth of molds. Next time I will just spend the 15 hours of time and loft out a set of molds and I sure ...

Big Pine Board Suggestions---First steps--Roughing it out

08-02-2009 03:59 AM by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Hello again all, After thinking about and looking at the suggestions provided, I decided to take a piece of one suggestion and run with it. I am going to take this 8’ board and turn it into a couch table—kinda. Ulimately this will end up being four separate tables linked together by puzzle piece cutouts. If you want one table about 24 inches square, you only use one part of the table. If you need a longer table (maybe for serving at a party) you can piece together up to all fou...

Shop Doings #1: How many clamps?

02-27-2012 12:46 AM by SalvageCraft | 20 comments »

I started on a small project tonight. I guess I got a little carried away with the clamps. Somewhere after the first ten, I just got curious to see how many more would fit. The really disturbing part is, I’ve forgotten what I was even making, and I can’t see through the tangle of clamps well enough to make any guesses! So, off to hang out on LJs…

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #14: Table Saw Taper Jig

12-17-2013 02:12 AM by PhilBello | 1 comment »

When it came to making wooden wedges, my efforts were always hit and miss, however because hopefully, in the New Year sometime, we will finally be in the position to buy our own place, and one that needs a bit of work, I thought I had better start getting prepared. One of the things I will need, will be shims for putting in door frames, I have to be honest when it comes to finding tools or accessories you need, here in Colombia, it is very hit and miss. The reason I keep being given is,...

First self designed piece of furniture #1: Almost built, getting close to the finishing stage

11-29-2009 04:09 AM by drfixit | 2 comments »

This is the first peice of furniture I have designed and built. It is a small table to sit between my parents two recliners. The slide out drawer will contain a small trash can that can be hidden when not in use. It is made of red oak. Trying to match some of the furniture thay have I made the profile around the top using the table saw, a 1/2” round over bit, and a 1/4” round nose bit. It still needs to be sanded down and will be stained pecan. The top is recessed for a piec...

Cabinet Progress #7: Watch Glue Dry

04-24-2007 02:50 AM by gizmodyne | 8 comments »

Under Pressure I don’t know about the rest of you, but glue up stresses me out. Even though we had dry fit the doors, I feel that time crunch as soon as I spread the glue. These doors are only held together by tiny tenons on the left and right beadboard pieces. The process Set out the clamps and separate the breadboard end to expose the tenons. Glue the tenons of the outer beadboard Clamp it Check for square by measuring across the diagonals Apply diagonal pressure if n...

The Phantom Woodworking Show

02-22-2010 06:50 PM by Kerry Drake | 12 comments »

Saturday my wife and I got up early (for us, on a Saturday) and hit the road to drive down to Marlborough, Massachusetts to attend a woodworking show I had found online a few weeks ago. We made the 86 miles drive in bright sunshine and good spirits, arriving at our destination 10 minutes before the show was scheduled to start that day (the website advertising a 3 day event, Fri – Sun). Imagine our surprise to show up and find an empty … nay, a desolately deserted … park...

My 5 projects #3: Lots of legs, work on the workbench, and where did this come from?

05-02-2012 06:15 AM by derosa | 1 comment »

I’ve actually managed to be busy lately despite wrapping up some plans from an archaeological site for a friend. First things first, I’ve managed to wrap up the creation of the legs for the portable countertop. I’d like to get some brass gas fittings to turn on the ends but so far no luck finding ones that fit around here. The lets are about 1.25” diameter and nothing seems to quite be that size. The fourth leg was turned, all four were then put back on the lathe fo...
