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...

What to do with a Walnut slab.. #3: Last of the saw work, start of the cussing

11-27-2015 10:42 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, Landlord WAS coming over to finish the painting upstars…..fell asleep. he will TRY to get over here in the morning….he says. Wandered down to the shop, to see what sort of trouble I could get into…. Had three parts to make tenons on….two had curved sides. Might be a bit tricky to clamp in the end vise? I picked out a scrap of walnut from when I sawed the curved parts. Had to trim the ends back a bit.. So I could clear the “work area”...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #69: Towel Rack

01-26-2016 01:04 AM by PhilBello | 6 comments »

The weather here in Colombia is such that, even when it is winter it remains at least warm, we have no heating, and drying clothes, bedding etc. is no problem, we have a covered drying area outside, but after a shower, my towel until now, has been draped over anything available upstairs, where it has dried but looked unsightly, it was time to do something about it. I pondered on design, as I had some 1”dowel and plywood, but in the end went with trusty 2×4!! For the first time I...

New home for the horses #2: The End. Finaly.

09-24-2013 10:14 AM by Esko Lehtovaara | 0 comments »

It’s now 24.9. It all started on 26.8. (with renting a sement mixer. It took only 6 hours for us to get the slab done.) Since then allmost every day has been a workday. Maby 3 days has been lazy day with only 2-3hours of work. Still. I started to be quite fedup. Rest of the work is a piece of cake: digging a ditch for the rain water. I’ll put a tube on the bottom and fill with gravel 008. The “door” from the old ‘pihatto’. Pihatto is the house for the hors...

End Table project #3: Frame and panel work

07-26-2015 02:36 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, last time, I had a couple frames almost done. I went down to the shop a couple times today. Got the second large frame all joinered up. Then worked on the narrow end frame.. This is from laying out where the rails would go. First I had to trim them to length. Got out a mitresaw.. A little old school, but it works. Had a plain candle handy, and before most cuts, I’d rub the saw with the candle. Made sawing thos oak a breeze. Cut a few tenons with that same saw. h...

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,...
