Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair #2: From Library to Leisure - Layout, Ripping, and Cutting

63 days ago by TimBridge | 1 comment »

I got the wood for this project for free from a friend of a friend’s old bookshelves. Some of it is badly warped, there are a few screw holes in it a bunch of places that I’ll have to plug, and it’s discolored from years of use so I am pre-sanding everything with 80 grit. Beggars can’t be choosers! All in all, there were four 6’x10” boards and eight 3’x10” boards. I laid everything out with my drywall square and speed square, making su...

544 days ago by bigchopperoo | 3 comments »

I’m going to do a half lap with a cross cut, chisel paring, and followed through with a shoulder plane. Now if you didn’t know better, you might be thinking I’m an Olympic diver getting ready to execute a stunning high dive. But alas, I am not. I’m a woodworker, and this is a structural joint and the tools I will use to make a simple, yet strong woodworking joint. The Half Lap is a joint used to connect two intersecting pieces of wood. Each piece of wood is sawn to half its thickness. Whe...

My First Workbench #2: Day 2 The cross cut jig

712 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

I’m letting the wood acclimate to the garage a bit and focus on other tasks around the house before we head to my wife’s class reunion. But, I did manage to make a nifty little cross-cut jig for my circular saw to prepare for trimming the 2×4s to length for when I build the top. For details and pictures, please click here.

Cross Cut Sled

931 days ago by DylanC | 3 comments »

Along with assessing my tool inventory, I spent some time this holiday season making my first cross cut sled. After looking at LOTS of different designs with LOTS of different bells and whistles, I settled on Marc Spagnuolo’s (a.k.a. The Wood Whisperer’s) design from his video here. The video was a great help and I’m sure the basic sled will serve me well for quite a long time. The base is 3/4” birch plywood, around 30” x 40”. The fences are 2 pie...
