Making Curved Plywood

874 days ago by DS | 12 comments »

The Press:—————————————————————————————I built my vacuum bag press from scratch last year and I was itching to try it out. A project came along that was just perfect for it. Curved plywood. The pump is a pneumatic venturi that I got from joewoodworker dot com. It was the most expensive part of the build but not that ex...

Work In Progress #5: Canasta Final Part

975 days ago by Byron | 2 comments »

So heres the finished thing. You can see it open in the pictures on the bottom. Better pictures soon to come. The drawers are an important part of my design because of my mother. When I was younger she taught my older brother and myself how to play canasta, and always had two nice decks of cards to play, unfortunately we were not the cleanest while playing and the cards almost always got ruined. Eventually she started to hide the cards. It came to the point where she would burry the c...

Asian Cabinet #2: Where there's a Jig, There's a Way

1380 days ago by Brian Havens | 4 comments »

The first task I decided to tackle is the cabinet legs. If I cannot get the legs right, all bets are off. They look deceivingly simple in the design picture, but having the cabinet float above the legs, as well as my attempt to make the legs from 8/4 stock complicates things a bit. Nothing that a jig cannot solve, right?

OSB Projects #1: Round Front Bedside Tables

1653 days ago by bobkberg | 2 comments »

I’ve been working on these for almost a year now. As with any serious project, I build a prototype/model out of cardboard full scale. The main reason for the cardboard is so that we can slice/dice/tape/glue the prototype into what we want. The prototype in the photo above is in its 3rd or 4th incarnation in cardboard alone. The top section contains a lazy susan with dividers to hold up books – both of us like to read in bed, and jump from one book to another depending on o...

A glass top table with opposing arches

2241 days ago by John Fry | 16 comments »

I call this the “Opposing Arches” table. This commissioned glass top display table, or buffet, is 50” wide at the base, 14” deep and 29” tall. It supports a piece of glass that is ¾” thick by 18” by 66”. The construction is shop sawn zebrawood veneers, laminated on two layers of 1/8” poplar bending ply, on a curved torsion box inner core. The curved members are then framed in sold quarter sawn sapelli. The divider box is shop sawn veneer, cut from a very fine grained piece of Macassar...
