Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #5: Breadboard Ends

09-08-2009 09:34 PM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

While I’m ammonia fuming another project, I figured I’d make progress on this one. I pulled a WoodWhisperer and threw away the tape measure. I milled the ends to the proper thickness (which also gave me some nice mahogany veneer). I can’t tell you how lovely working mahogany is, compared to oak. Then while the stock was still one long piece, I used the table saw blade to make the dado that fits the tongue on the top (Darrell calls it the “core”). I achieved ...

Super Duper Sled #1: The Sketchup Plans

09-04-2010 08:25 AM by AttainableApex | 11 comments »

Well here is my latest sled design. This sled is a combination of many sleds that i have seen in the past. One sled that really influenced it, is the super sled by john nixon at eagle lake woodworking. I like the t track on the sled part (the sheet part) but i am going to use real t track. I also liked the t track on top of the fence, which i incorporated, but it stops there. This sled should be able to do just about everything. You can cut 45’s ( blade tilting at 45 deg ) and every o...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #2: Cutting and Measuring

11-18-2010 07:12 AM by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

In this tutorial I’ll be making three redwood wine box displays. Two will be 12” x 12” x 3”, the other will be 10” x 10” x 2 1/4”. These are the two most common sizes I make, the 12” square box will hold ~125 wine corks, where as the 10” version will hold ~80. It doesn’t look like that many will fit in there, but I promise you they will.Before we begin, I want to mention that these tutorials will be available on my photography sit...

Woodworking Accessories Alternatives #2: Kerf Setting Dado Jig from a T-track left over

01-31-2011 09:00 AM by steliart | 4 comments »

Continuing this blog on T-tracks, there is nothing that goes to waist, even the most insignificant piece, at a given moment may turn out to be gold. So, the other day I was looking into some drawers and I found a cut-off piece of t-track that I used on my router table. We all use them and most times we cut them to size to fit our dimension, as they are sold in specific lengths. So I was thinking why did I save that small 20cm long piece?And the same night as I was browsing along the wo...

Outdoor Furniture #12: Patio Planter Boxes - Finished!

06-26-2012 10:44 PM by Retsof | 1 comment »

I finished painting my patio planter boxes today. I like the way they came out. Thanks to the mortise and tenon, and panel construction, they are very sturdy. The were a lot of dadoes, mortises, tenons, and trim to cut for this project, but it was a lot of fun fitting all the pieces together. The colors are Martha Stewart’s “Monk’s Glove” and “Chianti” from Home Depot. Working on these in my garage attracted a lot of attention. As I was fi...

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #4: Table Top

09-08-2009 03:38 AM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

As I was waiting for another project to dry, I did a little work on the table top. I had cut it oversized on purpose to take advantage of the wavy figure in the board. I then had to face the difficult decision of how to trim it down for a sofa/foyer table that didn’t stick too far out. I settled on a 14” wide board, which leaves plenty of room for a decent overhand in the front, 2 1/4” legs, and a side apron that doesn’t look like a chubby baby’s leg. I the...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #1: My Interpretation of Thos. Moser's Design

04-30-2013 01:09 PM by DustyMark | 8 comments »

What to Expect This blog series will highlight some of the techniques I use in solid wood case construction. My previous blog, about building the New Gloucester rocker, covered nearly every step in photographs with an occasional video. This blog will not detail every step along the way, but will rather explore key details of case construction using primarily videos. The videos are “rough takes” since I’m not going to spend the extra time to edit them. In those situati...

The New Yankee Workshop - Chapter 1 The Medicine Cabinet #2: Medicine Cabinet - First Project Day 1

01-08-2013 04:49 AM by camps764 | 4 comments »

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step…Lao Tzu After writing the initial blog I could hardly wait to get started. Took care of few things around the house, re-read the first chapter a few times, checked my lumber supply, kissed the baby and retreated to my shop for the day. The book opens with some initial information about types of saws and tools a woodworker needs, an overview of the fundamental joinery and some other basic terminology. Great information, ...

Beads Box #4: Mild Cutting, Doors part, Dadoes, and rabbets

10-08-2009 03:28 PM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

I’ve had this project on the back burner (literally- it was standing in the back on the burner…) for a long time (just click on the “Previous blog entry” and you’ll see what I mean). and I think it’s due to the fact I have high expectations out of this project, that sometimes I feel are a bit over my capabilities and abilities at this day and age. But… I finally got some courage, and cut the carcass down so I can pick up on this project, and move o...

Cabinet Making #3: Making Drawers

06-28-2010 06:43 AM by Tim Dorcas | 4 comments »

Up to now, things were relatively easy. Now the actual work was going to start. To make the drawers, I decided to use Poplar. However, I did something I would now change. I purchased 4/4 of the stuff with the idea that I would resaw in half on my bandsaw. In retrospect, I should have purchased 8/4 and cut it into thirds. After resawing, planing and sanding, the boards were much thinner than I had hoped. The next decision was how to construct the drawers themselves. I have an Akeda Dovetai...
