Time lapse Woodworking #1: Attaching a coffee table storage shelf with dowels

12-14-2010 03:55 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

In this time lapse, i’m building a trestle coffee table from Walnut. At this point i’m attaching the underside storage to the top of the table. The underside of the top and entire storage shelf has been sanded up to 500 grit and buffed with a wool pad to burnish and clean out the pores in the wood. What a shine one can achieve from just bare wood, its amazing, silky smooth! First I measure and drill the holes for the 2’’ x 3/8’’ dowels that will attach...

Machinist Toolbox #1: Design - Feedback Welcome

12-06-2010 04:38 AM by PurpLev | 22 comments »

I’ve seen machinist toolboxes here and elsewhere a couple of times, but never felt they would be useful for my woodworking needs as they seem to be aimed at organizing smaller items/tools/etc, so I never paid much attention to these boxes. With my recent interest in machining, I find I need a toolbox to hold all my small gauges, tools, keys, wrenches, tooling, measuring devices, etc. A machinist toolbox would be perfect for the job. I’ve looked around, and to be honest- these b...

French Fry Friday #1: November 5, 2010

11-05-2010 03:31 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I started a theme for each day of the week. Fridays will be “French Fry Friday” and I’ll be talking about some sort of accessories that I build. Why “French Fry Friday”? I always here “would you like fries with that?” Fries are a side item and not part of the main meal. Same thing with the accessories or smaller items that I build. I blog about the big stuff but neglect the smaller stuff. So hear is a chance for often overlooked items to shine. This first one is a bookcase that was part of...

Win a Baseball bed

10-30-2010 04:48 PM by Chris Davis | 4 comments »

I am giving away one of my baseball beds to the person that can guess the winning team, last game, and score of the World Series. It’s not as hard as you think, we already have two games down. An example of a guess would be Texas, 4 to 3, game 7. Don’t post here. I can only track the guesses on Facebook. The bed will be a twin size Baseball bad with the score of the last game on the headboard. It will include the headboard, foot board, side rails, slats, and shipping (the ...

Custom Wooden Pull Handles #1: How to make custom Drawer Pulls

09-28-2010 03:34 AM by bohnsai | 15 comments »

This blog is to show others how I created all the Walnut Pulls on my Clothes Hamper Hider I searched the Lee Valley and Rockler (among others) catalogs for hours trying to find something I liked for the furniture piece but didn’t find anything that suited my fancy. I found some maple and cherry handles that looked like they might work but I wanted walnut for contrast. Would you believe it? Walnut pulls don’t exist! So I decided to make some of my own. I went ahead and bought...

A Keychain is Born ~ 8/30/10 ~ With Video

08-30-2010 10:29 AM by dustynewt | 9 comments »

I must apologize for my lack of interaction here on LumberJocks. I am on the night shift at the paper mill and my neighbors don’t dig the 2:30 am woodworking bit, so I have been limited to my keychain work and ya’ll have seen that. It is my night off and I remembered a couple requests a while back to do a blog on my keychain process. So, here ‘tis! I hope the video comes out right. I’ve been experimenting with my CoolPix. Short videos? I can do that! So I decided to...

Post and Panel Construction System #4: How to Create The Pieces

07-27-2010 09:25 AM by Pete Tevonian | 9 comments »

Everything in this set depends on two things: cutting the beads and cutting the grooves. And those two things both rely on using the right router bits. Watch the video below for the short and sweet summary. Read the text below for more details. The Right Router Bits There are two bits used for this project—a ball-end bit and a bead profile bit. In this case, both bits have a main diameter of 3/8”. Through some testing and some math, I determined that 3/8” groove...

Building a Credenza #10: Custom Hardware

07-07-2010 05:18 AM by Blake | 12 comments »

The Doors Last time I glued up the door fronts: I spent some time fitting the doors with a plane: And then I passed them through the drum sander to flatten them: This little marking jig came with the hinge drill bit I bought: Drilling the holes for the hinges: Aligning the hinges: The Skinny Door I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not to cover the space where the DVD player shelf is. I finally decided it needed a cover of some ki...
