Flip Table #4: Mobility and More Questions

221 days ago by hjt | 5 comments »

Phase 3 of the Flip TableTodays’ phase of the project started out to simply add a floor and some wheels, but I also decided to make it a little beefier. Adding the floor:On the side I consider to be the front of the flip table, I put a support piece behind the front legs. I did this to have a little more foot room and allow me to get closer to the table (wife’s idea.) Smart gal! I cut the ¾ plywood just a little larger than needed. I used my jig saw to trim off the un-needed boar...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #12: Grinder Stand or Piece of Furniture?

274 days ago by PhilBello | 0 comments »

Having a shortage of bench space, I decided that I needed to create a space for the bench grinder, and not wanting to damage any walls in the apartment, I decided a dedicated Grinder Stand was called for, but not away floor storage space. After hunting for a while, I found what I was looking for on Woodstore.net it hardly reduced the floor space at all. To make this you only need half a sheet of 3/4” plywood, I used pine, as it was cheaper, and some scraps of birch ply for the top...

Wooden Letters #1: Fancy Wooden Letters

532 days ago by Kevbo | 4 comments »

I’ve done whole names of simpler style letters, and I am learning a lot as I go. Some of what I’ve learned is stated below. I’ve made “Charlotte” and “Oliver” letters that fit together like jig saw pieces. Both Charlotte and Oliver are 2 years old and I wanted to give them something to help them learn to spell their names. Charlotte is my daughter and it is really working! These letters are a little fancier as they are for older kids and I had li...

Three New Projects

554 days ago by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

This pile of lumber may not look like much but it will magically turn in to two of my Fishy Coffee Tables and a Toy Box. :-) Turns out I need another 10 feet of white pine, so off to the store I go tomorrow. It makes it easy that a lot of the work for all three projects can be done ahead of time in a batch. Things like ripping the edges off the 2×4’s and ripping the 1×12 white pine into three pieces each. All of that was after I cut them into rough lengths so it would be ea...

A Guitar for Daniel #1: Okay, you finished high school, now the learning starts...

628 days ago by Dan Lyke | 3 comments »

One of Charlene’s friends from a college years ago has two kids who’ve recently graduated from high school. The elder dived into travelling around Europe and heading off to college on the other coast and generally diving into life. The younger, Daniel, is an Eagle Scout, but post high-school has been casting around trying to figure out what he wants to do. He’s been feeling stuck in a small town up in the Sierra foothills, and we’ve dragged him down to closer to the co...

Steam Bending #4: My First Bending Project is Completed!

680 days ago by Retsof | 3 comments »

The Nets are done and I’m really pleased with how they came out, this being my first attempt at steam bending or building my own net frames. Two of them will make nice gifts for my Dad and my Brother. Net#1: Walnut and Alder Hoop with a Walnut Handle. The inside diameter of the hoop is 9”x14” with an overall length of 21.5”. One of my hand made fly fishing lanyards is on the table behind the net. I fish with a lanyard to hold my fly fishing tools rather tha...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #26: A useless machine with a thousand uses!

713 days ago by StumpyNubs | 14 comments »

When I saw the commercial version of our new “invention” I thought… why would anyone ever spend $200 on that? Then everyone started arguing about the term “jig saw” and the old man next door went out looking for the Kaiser and I bought a ton of old 8-track tapes… next thing you know it’s a great new episode Blue Collar Woodworking. And a new homemade shop machine is unveiled! After you watch this one, visit Stumpynubs.com for more woodworking goodn...

Nakashima-esque Coffee Table #2: Step-by-step Tabletop Continued

768 days ago by Donowoodworks | 0 comments »

I got a bit more time to work on my tabletop today and it is coming along! I think that the longest part remaining is going to be cutting the butterfly dovetails to keep the cracks from spreading. One edge on the bottom is a mess. It will take some time, but I plan on at least 100 years of service out of a piece of furniture when I build, so it will be worth it. I want to keep away from straight lines in this piece, so I used a curve to draw the edges of the table. The curve is adju...

jig saw jig

783 days ago by iamcliff | 5 comments »

So I made a jig for my jig saw. I had the Kreg square-cut jig in mind when I made it. I used a couple of scrap pieces of wood. I don’t have a jointer or a plane, so I used the sides that looked the most straight. I’m guessing they were milled at least on one edge, since I got the wood from Home Depot. I checked these edges for square with my combo square and they looked pretty good. I used glue and clamped the two pieces together then used my nail gun to nail them together on...
