End Table - Prototype #1: Prototype for upcoming Television Stand

11-16-2009 09:09 AM by Sleff | 1 comment »

So I’ve been planning on building a decent mahogany tv stand for about a year now. I drew up numerous plans and picked out tons of wood from my old stockpile. I had the dimensions down so that it would fit my (much too large and heavy) old school tvas well as 3 peripherals right at the top. Also lots of storage below for whatever. Work became unbelievably busy last year, as well as my wife getting pregnant and my twinswere born 7 months ago. Wow. So needless to say I didn̵...

Three New Projects

02-23-2013 05:05 AM by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

This pile of lumber may not look like much but it will magically turn in to two of my Fishy Coffee Tables and a Toy Box. :-) Turns out I need another 10 feet of white pine, so off to the store I go tomorrow. It makes it easy that a lot of the work for all three projects can be done ahead of time in a batch. Things like ripping the edges off the 2×4’s and ripping the 1×12 white pine into three pieces each. All of that was after I cut them into rough lengths so it would be ea...

Hand Tool Journey #14: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 2

05-10-2013 03:17 PM by Airframer | 7 comments »

Just a quick update.. I see a lot of views but no feedback.. I’m beginning to think this is a stupid idea but, I’m pushing forward anyway. I got the legs rough cut and ready to be mortised into the hinge. I also got the brass curve cut. The geometry of that thing is a bit confusing but I think once the legs are shaped and the mortise is in place for that to go through it will make more sense. Right now the curve doesn’t seem like it will want to go through the same spo...

Tools tools, I love toys, I mean tools #1: You can never have enough clamps, especially parallel clamps

06-04-2014 07:04 PM by paxorion | 3 comments »

I think I have a problem. I love clamps so much that it must be infectious, that my 2 year old daughter gets excited when she sees clamps. My wife has pointed out that I probably have more clamps (built up in 2 years) than her parents keep in stock at any point in time (they run a hardware store…). I’m in denial that I probably have enough clamps to get this hobbyist through most projects they I may undertake in the near future. Recently I have begun building up my supply of w...

Practice makes... Well, two steps forward one step back.

Out in the shop today dry fitting a small scale (6”x8”) prototype of an end grain cutting board using cheap Poplar to hold costs down and hone my technique. (Heck, given my lack of experience it’s more like creating a technique!) The first dry fit went easily – too easily when I pondered it. So I tried again, this time imagining the pieces all slippery with glue… And sure enough all the parts ‘skidded around’ and a couple ended up on the ‘...

Firewood Plane #2: Not so alternative plane blanks

10-31-2011 06:13 AM by tr33surg3on | 0 comments »

I decided to abandon the firewood plane blank after I realized it was lodgepole pine. I’m playing it safe by using a Maple turning blank. It was about 2×2x20. I cut it down to two 10” segments and glued them together to make a 2×4x10 blank. It will be a little wider than necessary, but I’ll have plenty of room for error when I rip the sides. It also turned out the blade on my thrift-store #5 is more pitted than I had hoped. I sharpened it as best I cou...
