Underway again...finally #11: Pro Football day - some progress in wood and football

11-20-2017 12:51 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Let’s get the “big deal” out of the way first. After a shaky first 3 quarters, we pulled it out in the last couple of minutes. My team now has 8 wins in a row! Geaux Saints! Whew. With that taken care of, I did a bit of work both before and after the game. Before the game, I worked on strengthening the table saw stand and raising its height to what it should have been yesterday. Nothing major skill-wise. Just the usual “do and re-do” process for me as I futz m...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #6: Aprons and Legs

11-16-2017 02:15 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Guess I forgot to post this one, my progress last week on the table base. Using my shop made taper jig, I tapered the insides of all 4 legs and started cutting the cross laps in the aprons where they meet in the legs, everything went very well, aprons squared up nicely and fit the legs well. I’m happy with how sturdy everything ended up, almost no movement in any direction even in dry fit. I am waiting to glue it until I decide how I will slot the inside face of the apron for the table top...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #5: Breadboard ends

11-16-2017 02:03 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

After a few days of analyzing how to cope with the cup in the table top panel that appeared after glue up. I arrived at the conclusion that my original plan of using a dado blade on the table saw wasn’t going to work for machining the tongues. So I ordered a pattern bit from Whiteside machine to try and use a router and a known flat reference surface to machine the tongues after I clamped the panel flat. Worked pretty well, tongues are straight but not as uniform in thickness as I had hope...

IMPORTANT MESSAGE- THE PASSING OF MY FATHER, GLENN

11-07-2017 08:29 AM by holsworthwoodworks | 8 comments »

Good evening everyone! After several weeks of tremendous pain, I, Jennifer Holsworth (Kendrick) and my husband Jacob, have just now gained the strength to let everyone know that my father, Glenn Holsworth, had suddenly and tragically passed away on September 14th, 2017. Since we’ve been dealing with this terrible time on our own (without support from any family members, as it has always been my father, Glenn, myself, my husband and my son since forever) it has been very hard to cl...

A little time off #4: Dovetails cleaned up, lid is done..

11-07-2017 04:31 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

And even a PIP!Dovetails were planed down flush with the sides… Once all the corners and edges looked good, I could set up the Stanley 45 as a bead cutter.. As I wanted a pair of beads run all the way around… Started on the ends first, then the sides, reset the fence a bit, and go around again.. Beads had to be low enough for a sliding lid..saw cuts were made.. Down to the top of the bead. mitre cuts on one end, then a plunge cut the split off a “handle̶...

A little time off #3: Time for a glue up

11-04-2017 10:25 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

First, I needed to make a bottom panel, and some grooves to fit the panels ( 2) into… Dry fit, to get the size of the panel…close.. need grooves, though.. Set up the Stanley 45 with the #13 groove cutter. Built a jig on the bench….so the sides would stay put.. Get one side grooved along both edges, the do the other long side….adjust things to hold the shorter ends.. Made a bunch of “noodles” Once all 8 grooves were done, I checked how t...

A little time off #2: Back to work, a box from Poplar scraps

11-03-2017 05:24 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, had a few scraps of Poplar, just sitting around, getting in the way Trimmed a few down, to see IF I could make a box out of them… Laid out some tools, to make a few dovetails.. Just the Usual Suspects….Laid out some pins, since I do pins first.. Went to set up the Shop Stool, so I could sit while I work… This is where it normally sits at, when I am running a saw.. This time, the welds on the stool decided to gave way…..had to saw the first set sta...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #3: Cleaning up main panel and distractions

10-22-2017 01:35 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Pulled the panel out of clamps yesterday after spending most of the day running around. Part of that time was spent picking up with stock which will become the legs. I had found a very rough piece of walnut, which I had a friend offer to clean up for me. When I stopped by to pick it up, he hadn’t gotten to it yet but was willing to take care of it then. So we blanked the pieces to ~20” and started jointing 2 sides perpendicular so we could square it up on the planer. Think a jointer migh...

A project in Maple #8: Hinges, rails, and dovetails

10-08-2017 08:12 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Hinges I had bought for this project…looked a bit wimpy….needed something a bit …different. Some yard sale finds gave me a few hinges to try. One “leaf” was a bit too long, though. Grinder to remove the “excess” metal.. One is a before, the other three are after the grinder work. Sat the lid in the vise, laid out the locations for the hinges, drilled a few pilot holes…. Once all three were done, I set the lid aside, cleared a sp...

Making a home for my 45 plane #2: Ideas for a Box

10-08-2017 01:33 AM by CO_Goose | 0 comments »

So after putzing around on the computer for a while I settled on the Japanese style toolbox. There are many articles on them, but I settled on the style that Christopher Schwarz had a drawing for here: https://blog.lostartpress.com/2013/03/24/japanese-tool-chest-measured-drawings/And then made a box here:https://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/326395 I also liked the box that Brad made here on Lumber Jocks http://lumberjocks.com/projects/196978I wanted the plane to stand upri...
