L-Shaped Desk #5: Legs, snipe, joints, finish and a clever (I think) 45 degree angle jig!

08-07-2017 02:38 AM by SauceMan | 2 comments »

Hey, It’s been forever since I’ve posted. I’ll keep the words minimal and show my progress as a set of images as much as possible. That should make scrolling through this blog post pretty quick. First, I really need to work on cutting. I now have a 5 HP table saw (or is it a 3 HP saw pretending to be 5?) and a brand new blade, but I get serious burns. That’s what you see on the left of the top-most leg up there. But there they are, 6 legs ready to go! ...

Simple box to hold candy #4: Lid fixed, and fitted...PIP?

07-19-2017 01:54 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

At least until the BLO cures. Then the hinges and a latch get installed Rather a thin fix, but seems to work, also used the same wood to fill in the square holes where the grooves came through,,a look from above? Maybe a look at the end? Showing how the “patch” looks And.maybe a “front” view.. Maybe…trying to decide on which face will be the front…. Or maybe this one? I also gave the box a second coat of BLO, the first was just soaki...

Floating Serpentine Shelf #7: Applying the Finish

07-14-2017 07:44 PM by Ron Stewart | 0 comments »

Unlike most projects, finishing was by far the easiest part of this one. I just sanded everything to 280 grit and, in preparation, used every portable flat surface at my disposal to fill up half the garage. Then I applied three “coats” of Watco Natural Danish Oil over several days. I wet-sanded the second coat with 600 grit paper to try to fill in any corner gaps. The RevolutionPly didn’t absorb as much oil as most other wood (or plywood). I think that’s b...

Ok, I went back down and planed every edge.. Glued on the Book Rest..Fans…gotta have them ON..Cleaned up the dovetails… Fitted a gap filler for the bottom.. And got things ready for hinges….Bookrest was even planed smooth.. I also used this same Stanley, Made in England #4c to clean the dovetails up. Didn’t do too badly on the figured wood… Did I mention how I hate doing hinges?Have to dig out a space for the hinge to set in (on a beveled edge...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1837: Fun With New Projects

06-05-2017 12:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As I try to achieve my goal of getting back to blogging more often, I wonder if showing you all the piles of wood that I cut interests you all. I wonder if they all begin to look the same to you or if it is really something that you enjoy seeing. Since much of my time these days has been spent on production work and filling orders for decorative painters, I find that if I don't show the piles, I sometimes don't have a great deal new to say here. However, I know that many of my followe...

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

04-24-2017 07:27 PM by Jerry | 37 comments »

As mentioned in my previous post, I had an interview with a local reporter, here’s the video, and for those of you wondering what I really look like now as opposed to my profile picture that was taken 33 years ago, here’s the sad truth. I forgot to mention earlier when I first posted this that all of the music playing in the background was done by me. View on YouTube

To Give is better than to Receive

My little cousin is getting married this year so my aunt asked if i could make her a blanket/storage/keepsake chest. This was my very first blanket chest/storage chest build but of course i wouldn’t turn down the opportunity!(quick side note, So i do about 90% of my work with hand tools only, i do all the milling and and joinery and basically everything other than long board rips, then i use a table saw…just thought this was important for you to know in this part of the story) So yeah…normal...
