Tansu-shmansu #1: Birthday or xmas gift

1856 days ago by Pankratio | 9 comments »

So I’ve decided I’m building a tansu-styled cabinet (specifically the step or kaidan tansu style) for my lovely lady. I’ll be documenting the entire process on here until it’s done. Once it’s done, the nearest xmas or her birthday (march 8th) will become the ‘occasion’ for this gift. I like that deadline.

Projects #3: Completed Father's Day Gift Box

2491 days ago by Jeff | 5 comments »

I actually completed this on Father’s Day and got it in the mail this past Tuesday. After the glue up, I had to plane the fingers that were proud as well as lay down a finish. I cleaned up the joints with a low-angle block plane one evening and then oiled it with two coats of Watco Danish Oil (Natural) on Sunday and Monday. Dad received it last evening. He had just walked in the door when I called so I got to listen while he opened it. That was pretty cool to hear his reaction. He did...

Boxes #1: Making Wine Boxes... Father's Day Gifts

2491 days ago by gizmodyne | 15 comments »

11th hourAt the last minute I got inspired by Caliper’s gift box. I had bought some quartersawn white oak for such a project but had too much on my plate with the end of the school year. I finished report cards last Friday and decided to work on a gift for my dad and my father in law. I had a gift subscription to Wood Magazine last year. I like their detailed plans but never like the woods they use in their projects. This is from the Dec 2006 Issue. I decided to use walnut and whi...

Projects #2: Gift Box for Father's Day - Glue Up

2500 days ago by Jeff | 9 comments »

The process continues… Glued it up tonight. I’m glad I could find the generic epoxy syringe at the local big box. I didn’t have time for a trek to Rockler or Woodcraft for a small glue kit. The tip fit perfectly between the fingers and was easy to control the amout of glue dispensed. I’ll be cleaning up the slightly proud ends of the joints tomorrow evening. I hope that goes well considering the fingers are only 1/8” thick. I’m a little worried about tea...

Projects #1: Gift Box for Father's Day

2501 days ago by Jeff | 13 comments »

Hello everyone. It’s been forever since I posted anything it seems. I’ve been pretty busy with home upgrades and stuff for work but I finally got into the shop this weekend for a serious amount of time. I purchased wood for the base of the bench I’ll will be blogging about soon. I’m letting the lumber acclimate to the shop before milling it. So, since I had to let the wood do its thing on the stickers I decided I was going to challenge myself to build a box of some ...
