Originally, my legs were going to be 3-3/4” x 4-3/4”. After I got my top glued up, I decided that I wanted a little more beef in the legs. I had enough lumber left over that was already acclimated to my shop. I spent a little time yesterday dressing up the legs and put in a bit of time tonight getting the new pieces planed true and ready to add to the leg laminations. Because of my limited number of clamps, I was only able to get 3 of them glued up so far. Taking a break to wat...
So i finally got some work done today on my box. first i started by making the bottom. because i am using thick material for the sides i wanted to add some rigidness to the box so it is a 1/2” thick poplar bottom and i did the bevel with a hand plane. rather than set up machinery or anything. then it was time to focus on the dividers. these are hard because they are very thin stock and to get them good they have to fit right. so what i did was cut them and did almost what resembl...
I have just five minutes, but I’ll put some pictures of the work. The raw work is over: God willingly, tomorrow I’ll began with adjusting, sanding and finishing. What do you think of the whole? Tonight I’ll sit for a while and try to post a video. See you later, ...”sawdust-gators”.
In this part, I glue up the main portion of the top, that sucker is heavy. I also mill the parts for the legs and stretchers, lay them out and cut the core mortise and tenon joinery.
Howdy, I added all of my little U-Turns to the top and here is where I start this Blog. If you have any disparities in your measurements, Here is where they make an appearance. I have to add a 4 inch long piece of Curly Maple here but it’s wider than one inch because the rest of my strips were less than one inch wide. I cut a piece to length then I used a series of stopblocks and clamps to shave it to the exact width. Easy Glue up around all four corners. Once I got back to...
I finally got some editing done on a bunch of footage of working this piece of Maple that I rescued from the fire wood pile last year. It is going toward the box build I am working on. I have no real plan, just a vague idea and I am letting the wood take me it’s own way to get there. https://youtu.be/ZWDVLtvamCY
The Holsworth Woodworks Family Blog #3: Check back for my latest completed project- Zebrawood Cabinet!
Hey friends! Just wanted to update everyone and let you guys know that I will be visiting my daughter soon so that I can upload my new cabinet made from Zebrawood. I am not computer savvy hence why she is going to post it for me. I am VERY excited about this project and I have taken it to my local woodworkers club- Diable Woodworkers for show and tell. Can’t wait for everyone to see it! Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays!! Sincerely,Glenn Holsworth
Continuing on, I get the top ready for glue up and get it put together. Some preliminary work on flattening it and getting it cut to size and shape. By the end the top is pretty close to being done as far as working the wood. View on YouTube
FINALLY! First, needed some rebates for the screen’s frame to sit in. Don’t have a wide enough bit for the router, BUT, I do happen to have a couple planes that seem to work nicely This one is a Traditional Chinese Edge Plane I build awhile ago. Set the fence for 1/2” and push it along until it is almost all the way down to …3/16” deep. Then go over it with an Iron plane, since it does have a depth stop Hmmm, Noodles, anyone? Ok, rebates all lo...
This cabin will have a 9/12 pitch roof, and have petition walls, has plastic windows, and ceilings, and a roof that will open on hinges!
