Three New Projects

515 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...

Murphy Bed #5: Face Panels

1920 days ago by Gene47 | 2 comments »

Had an enjoyable day but again what day is not enjoyable when you get to spend it making sawdust? The first thing I did today is finish out my location jig so that for all future beds I will be able to align the pieces in the jig mark all the locations and do a quick check with the ruler and drill and cut. The first pic shows the jig with all of the holes and locations finished and properly marked. The second one shows the jig in position to lay out the opening for the Left Panel Lockin...

Recycling Cabinet

1353 days ago by Dave S | 2 comments »

Ok, so first post—— I’ve just finished building what could (charitably) be called my third project. Have yet to finish it. The impetus for this is a need for somewhere to keep recycling (bottles, cans, etc) in our new house. We have entirely renovated our kitchen recently, so this is one of the final pieces of that project. It’s pine from local HD. Held together with pocket holes—no fancy joinery here. Cutting was all done on my (new!) table saw, which ...

Technique Thursday #1: November 4, 2010

1356 days ago by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

I thought I’d post something for each day of the week. Thursday’s will be Technique Thursday. I’ll tell about some sort of technique that I use in woodworking. Templates: Can’t stress how important templates are. I’ll build them from 1/2” material to form the shape of a cut out. I always use a mechanical means of making a straight cut or a perfect arc (fence, straight edge, compass). It will then be used to trace onto the good piece, rough cut with...

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

235 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...

Weight organizer

1791 days ago by kosta | 0 comments »

In this episode I build a weight organizer for all of the free weights. It only took about 2 hours to build which is not a lot of time. I changed my design 2 times and Im glad I did because my original design would not have worked. I use 2 2×4s and 2 12 in 2×4s for the base.

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

729 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...
