Just for Fun... #86: The Work continues...

09-17-2014 12:32 AM by littlecope | 7 comments »

After a busy week of work and life, last weekend allowed me a few hours to devote to this latest “Mystery Project”...Though it only took 3 1/2- 4 hours, the sides were finally joined sometime Saturday morning… The last side is the most work, as it requires two corners to be filed to fit… These larger sides don’t help, they’re harder to handle, so the sides were clamped to the router table to facilitate the fiing… I might have saved mys...

Education #4: Finally, the parquet is done.

09-10-2014 03:38 PM by CreekOne | 0 comments »

So after two weeks of work and experimenting I have finally finished the parquet. All the 120 pieces are dead square and equal in size, down to a error of .01mm.So we made a total of 1200 pieces and only about 360-400 was usable. Than the best work begun, laying the pieces and gluing edge to edge: So after about 4 hours of intense concentration I was done. And a close-up: Tomorrow I will glue this up on a fibre board with a back of Brazilian Rosewood; got to have a nice und...

Experiment: Table top grain matching - gone wrong.

09-08-2014 07:03 PM by Oldtool | 8 comments »

I just started the two end tables to go with the entertainment center in my last project posting, working on the larger of the two at 24” X 21”, and determining the top’s appearance.All of my boards are about 7” wide, with one board at 9 1/2” & is flat sawn. I would like to make a one board top, not possible obviously, so I am stretching two 9 1/2” side by side to 21” wide:In so doing, I decided to add one additional board(s) in the middle of thes...

Cherry Curved-Front Desk #3: Making the back rail and clamping frame together

09-08-2014 12:28 AM by CharlesA | 0 comments »

Turns out the next step is making the back rail, clamping it to the glued up sides, and then clamping in a spacer in order to cut out the dovetails for the top, front rail. The back rail was relatively straightforward. I joint with a plane. It is a great feeling when you get those long shavings at the end of the process. I also like the impossibly thin shavings you get when using the smoother on the face. Clamped together and ready for the next step.

Cherry Curved-Front Desk #2: SLOWLY finishing the legs, first glue-up

09-07-2014 01:13 AM by CharlesA | 0 comments »

This build is going slow because each piece is complicated and because the steps are a bit different than the usual fair. I also ran into some complications with my mortiser bits. But the first step of the build is now done. I marked the mortises carefully And then cut them on the mortiser. Cleaned up the mortises with a chisel—done with the mortises. I cut the double curves on the front legs (back legs were already done) on the bandsaw. With this build, the instructions ...

Cherry Curved-Front Desk #1: Design Down, Getting Legs Right

09-01-2014 05:24 PM by CharlesA | 5 comments »

This is my second project progress blog. I am a hobbyist who likes to try to build things beyond my skill set. I started this desk in the spring, then got waylaid by the live edge table I needed to finish. Today I started again. I am making a Curved-Front Desk from the Fine Woodworking plan. The first step is to do the legs. I got ahead of myself in the spring and did the shaping of the legs before I did the mortises. By the end of the week, I will have 8-10 double-curved cherry leg...

A Domino Ooopppsss....

08-30-2014 03:08 PM by Huckleberry | 1 comment »

Here is where those seasoned veterans of the Festool Domino can point and laugh at some rookie mistakes. I am making a new cabinet to house my air compressor because the dawgone thing is soooo loud. So I thought it would be a great project to put my new Domino through some paces. As I was trying to understand some things on this machine I plunged into the face of some scrap 3/4” plywood I would be using to make the carcass. Well I created a through Domino, so back to the instruction...

Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #5: Finished

08-27-2014 09:25 AM by icemanhank | 8 comments »

Hi everybody, I have finished the flute now and I am very happy with how it has turned out. I was quite concerned about getting the finger holes correct and had some help from Charlie Mato-Toyela who spent about 90’ on the phone from the USA to Australia to help me get the pitch and the tuning correct, Charlie is a indeed wonderful person. His Youtube page is Blue Bear Flutes which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is contemplating making one of these lovely instrument...
