Daves Workshop #15: Overview of the Ryobi JM82K biscuit joiner, and comparison to the JM82GK.

06-18-2017 05:11 PM by dbhost | 2 comments »

After a long time of non use, I have a project I am needing to use biscuits on, so out comes the old RYobi JM82K biscuit joiner. I had to re-learn the controls, and thought I would share my findings with you, not to mention compare and contrast my 2008 model to the current (Summer 2017) model on the shelf. Hopefully you enjoy the video and thanks for reading / watching! View on YouTube For those of you on ios, Android and other platforms that do not support flash video…. Here’...

Morris Chair #1: Morris Chair Design and Cut out parts

02-28-2017 04:26 PM by PPK | 8 comments »

Here I’m going to outline the method I am taking to build myself a Morris Chair. I’ve been wanting to have one of these because I really like the look and the comfort, but also because I want to learn some new techniques, especially upholstery. I know there are a number of other blogs on building a Morris Chair, but they are all different, and everyone has their own unique ways of building. So here’s mine! I am not using a plan, per se. I have been looking at lots of pic...

Mahogany Shop Dust Extractor / Air Filter

02-27-2017 10:14 PM by heldercruz100 | 1 comment »

View on YouTube As we all know woodworking involves a lot of sanding, and that makes a lot of dust in the air. So yesterday I found an old extractor, it was from my growroom but still works. I made a box with joinery, painted the fan black and as usual gave it a mahogany finish, I think it makes a nice contrast, what do you think??

One of the best feelings in the world

12-05-2016 04:52 AM by Wes Harville | 3 comments »

I am currently working on a project that has really pushed me. I am cuttting all of the joinery by hand and the dovetails are at 86/94 degree bevels instead of 90. This particular joint was the 5th of 6 and while starting to test fit it, i realized it was going to go together without modifying it. As far as woodworking goes it is about the best feeling in the world!! https://youtu.be/H-5m5G0rwoc

3-in-1 baby bed #4: Building the railing - and a new jig

12-04-2016 06:15 PM by JSOvens | 2 comments »

I felt like it was time to actually build something for this project. I started with a component which I felt was relatively inconsequential. As woodworkers, we should strive to put due care and skill into every component of a build I know, but it can be prudent to try out new techniques and methods on a component which, when talking in practical terms, just isn’t as important as the rest. In this case, that component is the small rail on the toddler bed circled in the diagram below. ...

3-in-1 baby bed #3: Beefing up the legs

11-25-2016 02:54 AM by JSOvens | 3 comments »

With rough milling out of the way, I began work on the project with the big beefy leg posts. The main leg blanks measure 3”x4”, so I will need to laminate two boards together to achieve this. All of the lumber I bought was flat sawn, however, with the boards shown below, if I rip them in half, I should get two more-or-less rift sawn pieces (which I hear are more stable and lend themselves well to legs). I figured the best way to laminate the boards would be to have their en...

Custom Camera Box

10-02-2016 05:25 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

My filming stuff has been laying all over. Batteries in one box, camera in another, tripod somewhere else. I figured it was time to make a box to hold all my stuff. I was able to cut everything on my Ridgid bandsaw and then cut all the rabbets and dadoes on my router table. Very simple yet strong construction. Click here to view on YouTube.

Skill Building #2: Learning More of the Things!!!

08-22-2016 10:08 PM by CraftyCantrell | 3 comments »

I’ve switched to a largely video format, as it’s easier to hit record at the beginning of a process, hit stop at the end, and then edit out the unusable bits. This week I undertook Lesson 1: Assignment 6: Tongue and Groove Joint Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VI1IjMi-j1Y Link included above, as I’m not sure that the video is loading correctly here. And you can read my full write-up on my regular blog
