In the shop #1: Back to work - Simple Cutting board

09-22-2013 11:53 PM by WayneC | 22 comments »

I’ve been out of the shop for quite a while for a variety of reasons. Recently, I’ve been cleaning, organizing and reworking storage for my tools. Also, I have been doing some restoration work in the Kitchen. Rebuilding cabinets, refinishing and rebuilding doors. One of the chores that needs to be done is to replace the pull-out cutting board. This is the old one. It fits into this slot in the counter. The only real design changes I am planning is to make the ...

3 Girls & A Woodworker #12: Garage Sale Wood Gloat

06-11-2012 01:51 PM by John_G | 2 comments »

After seeing an ad on craigslist for a garage sale that was going to have some rough cut lumber i figured i’d buzz over and check it out. Turned out for whatever reason the gentleman was getting out of woodworking and looking to sell a bunch of lunber he’s had drying in his garage for years. As i look around i saw maple, cherry, and Peruvian Walnut. Playing a little niave i asked what i was worth and how much he wanted to sell. He said all of it. I passed on any of the sc...

Platform Bed #3: Platform part ready for finish

02-11-2012 03:50 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 13 comments »

Once again, this blog series is a queen size platform bed made of hard maple. The platform or actually the bed is done. Yet to make is the bed head. I decided to finish the bed, sand and poly it then flip it onto it’s side so that I can gain some moving around room in the shop. A bed that is 60”x80” takes up a lot of room. I’ve been cramped. I decided to put the bed on roller stands. It made it much better to work on and is sturdy. As you can see the end of the b...

My new Roubo #6: Beefing up the legs

01-05-2011 06:28 AM by JasonD | 1 comment »

Originally, my legs were going to be 3-3/4” x 4-3/4”. After I got my top glued up, I decided that I wanted a little more beef in the legs. I had enough lumber left over that was already acclimated to my shop. I spent a little time yesterday dressing up the legs and put in a bit of time tonight getting the new pieces planed true and ready to add to the leg laminations. Because of my limited number of clamps, I was only able to get 3 of them glued up so far. Taking a break to wat...

Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure: Items to Build for Fundraiser #1: What items to build for fundraising auction?

06-16-2010 12:28 AM by Jonathan | 13 comments »

My wife will be traveling out to San Diego in the middle of November to participate in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure walk. In order to be an entrant, she has to raise several thousand dollars through donations. One of her coworkers is planning a fundraising event to be held at a local restaurant sometime next month. There will be an auction at the event, with all the proceeds going directly to the walkathon. I would like to build a few things that can be auctioned-off to help ra...

Wood Related #1: Updated Lumber Rack Projects !!

03-30-2010 05:49 AM by Michael Hacker | 6 comments »

I have moved.. and moved a considerable amount of WOOD! I have updated my lumber rack projects with new photos of the current racks. My new shop is the entire basement, and to say its bigger than my last basement shop is an understatement. I have four times the space! and at least 88” of height between my floor mats and floor joists! I have repacked the racks and have collected EVEN MORE WOOD! You see my new house was built in 1918, and the basement had a few excellent resource...

Cutting Board, Wood Whisperer Style #1: Cutting and gluing

02-20-2010 09:12 AM by Jason Tetterton | 1 comment »

I hear it’s a right of passage around here to do a wood-whisperer type cutting board :) Well, since Marc inspired my new wood working hobby, I thought I would try one of his projects out. I decided to use the same famous pattern with Hard Maple and Purple Heart, I ordered the “cutting board” package from Bell Forest http://www.bellforestproducts.com/cutting-board-package. I received 3 pieces of wood, 2 hard maple and 1 Purple Heart. The lumber was already joint...

First Shop #5: Bench, Chisels and First Project

01-07-2008 03:01 AM by YooperCasey | 3 comments »

Last time I laid out my equipment purchase plans. No progress on purchases though I have decided on the Ridgid TS3650 contractor saw. I see the Woodworking show is coming to Milwaukee in February and that is only 5 hours south for me, so I may see what kind of deal I can snag there on a table saw. I’ve spent the last few evenings working on my core skills. Marking out, cutting, fitting and basically getting used to how certain things behave. This includes trying out my new Bosch CS20...
