Education and torment #1: Canary wood Box

12-15-2013 06:36 PM by GeneR | 0 comments »

The box is 4” square and made from canary wood and walnut, with a birdseye maple and walnut top. This started as an idea for the wifes Christmas present and grew to a little monster. I first decided on the box size being determined buy the length and thickness of the piece of canary wood. the piece was about 28 in long 4 1/2” wide and 1/2” thick so 4” square gave me some screw up room. At this time I figured I would use a 1/4” piece of plywood for the bo...

Tilting a Dado Set

07-16-2012 11:12 PM by rockinmichael | 4 comments »

I was designing a project a few days ago, and a couple of the joints would use angled dado’s. I’m wondering if anyone has done this and opinions on the safety of doing so.

Biedermeier/30's Dining Room Table #4: - Ready for finish

08-05-2014 06:40 PM by Patricelejeune | 12 comments »

Last time I posted on that project I was steam bending my mouldings. The columned were veneered in a previous post. Since this post we had another job to do a video on veneering column with Liquid Hide Glue that we posted on our Old Brown Glue playlist on youtube. It is uploading at the moment so go see it later if you are interested in learning how to veneer columns, we are pretty proud of it. The columns were turned with groves to allow for black rings. T...

Bedside table, from old barn siding

08-06-2013 12:04 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Had a few pieces of old barn siding in the shop, needing a project to use them in. Wife wanted a small table for beside the bed. Ok, need to find some leg stock. Found a 2×10 maybe twenty inches long. Ripped it into four legs. and planed all the saw marks away. Stashed them away for awhile. Had some Double Dutch 4” barn siding to mill down. Most were split almost right down the middle, and the few that weren’t were cupped badly. Reduced the wide planks ...

The Harbor Freight Experiment Series #2: Not enough clamps!

12-15-2013 08:10 PM by paxorion | 1 comment »

For part 2 of my series, I want to share how I tackled the problem of “not enough clamps!” early on in my woodworking adventure. When we a lot of something and at a very cheap price, there’s no better option (according to capitalism) than to outsource it. The first time I walked into a Harbor Freight, it was actually completely by chance when my wife was at Jo-Ann. I remember looking at the section housing all of the clamps and thought “why in the world would anyo...

Cheap, Free, or at least reasonable Glue Clamps

07-28-2008 09:23 PM by Karson | 22 comments »

I started to build a sample – first of the kitchen cabinets. It’s one over the microwave and is a standalone. I wanted to check out my techniques. Gluing on edge banding on the front edge of the plywood. 1 cabinet 21 X 24 X 12 and takes lost of clamps to glue on an edge band 1/8” thick on the front edge.(Note: I’m doing European style cabinets and not face frame style.) So I started to think about my options. At the toy workshop we sometimes use rubber ...

The making of a Telescope Eyepiece box #2: More pictures

01-30-2010 05:22 PM by Dennis Fletcher | 2 comments »

I have been busy, as of late, with actual work, going out of the shop to build, so I have been slow at getting pictures of this box uploaded. For any who are interested, here are current pictures. I need to put a finish on it, molding on it and complete the interior. (A small box that will be able to be lifted out for filters.) Last, but not least, I need to add some sort of handle on each side.

My workshop machinery, tools & accessories

02-14-2011 11:48 PM by steliart | 18 comments »

Since I cannot at this moment show my workshop as I am in search of a space, even though I have bought the machines and still in boxes. What I can do is to show the photos of my machines, some of the tools & accessories, don’t have photos for everything. <div></div>
