Roubo #5: Stretchers

501 days ago by bondogaposis | 2 comments »

I made a little more progress this week. I now have the stretchers cut and fit. The first thing to do is to cut the mortises. It took a lot of fiddling and was pretty slow going with the mortises that are 2 1/2” deep by 3/4”. I could only get away with going about 3/16” w/ each pass that’s a lot of passes to get 2 1/2” deep on eight mortises. Next up was the tenons. These went much faster. Here they are roughed in using a dado on the table saw. I d...

Mission Style Pedestal Table #3: Base to Top

424 days ago by Douglas | 2 comments »

I’ve made a lot of progress in the last few weeks. First I marked up the lumber, orienting grain and appearance for the various parts… Then I proceeded to cut everything to rough size. Laying out the curved pieces for the pedestal and cutting them to size… I then moved on to the feet… And starting fitting the pedestal and feet together… Everything went pretty well, and the experience of making the pine mo...

Jewelry Case Build #1: Rough Cutting Parts

79 days ago by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

I decided to build, what I think is, a nice jewelry case for my Niece’s birthday this summer. The case is Walnut with Bird’s Eye Maple for drawers and accents. There are some secondary 1/8” panels that will be either Baltic Birch or hardboard. Plans are from an older issue of Wood magazine. Here’s what it should look like when complete: Yesterday I cut everything but the hardboard to rough size. Then I dadoed out 10 tiny rails and stiles for half lap ...

Tool chest or blanket chest? #3: end panel

149 days ago by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Test fits of the end panels, not going so well. Lots of gaps. Had to go back and re-do a few things. Couple cuts were even out of square. What I get for rushing things. Reset the corded router, with the “right” bit, a 3/8” straight cutter. reset the fence to be a wee bit more in the center of the board’s edge. Ran all the grooves through, again. But, at least things are now set up for the front and back panels. Checked the raised panels, yep, they wer...

what i've been doing #7: im a idiot when it comes to design

1278 days ago by Dave | 2 comments »

My lid for my bench has a large knot hole with a check in it. So I had put some filler in it and have been waiting for over a week for it to dry.Its still damp.So I went to work on the joinery on the rails. I had a fellow lj make a suggestion that the layout of the tails did not give the appearance of hand cut. So I cut them off and chose a tighter layout.The new layout was almost to tight for my 1/8 chisel to get through. I still haven’t got used to the way my new saw tracks.Now I have...

Craftsman built-ins #8: Fireplace surround

571 days ago by mountainaxe | 2 comments »

Back in to the breach! As we approach ever nearer to Christmas day, my wife has been insisting that I return to the shop posthaste and build a fireplace surround for an electric unit we purchased last month so she can hang the stockings, etc. I figured that this project shouldn’t be that difficult. The fireplace itself contained instructions as to the opening size required. I already knew that I wanted to build a comprehensive unit based on a 1907 Stickley built-in design that inclu...

Chessboard #2: Drawers and Posts

1238 days ago by CartersWhittling | 2 comments »

Today I got off work early and the weather was +10 so I spent some time in the garage. I dovetailed the maple drawer and got the second walnut corner post turned. I had also glued up the 8 board stripes last night so I did some flattening to the board to prepare it to be crosscut. The dovetails turned out good on one side, but on the other I have some gaps so I might put some shims in at glue up. I have the drawer bottoms planed to thickness but still have not decided for sure if the drawers ...

Wood movement and battens

1851 days ago by CanalboatJim | 2 comments »

In a recent project posting a lumberjock had used battens to flatten a curling sign he had built. It brought to mind an experience I had using battens. When I retired from teaching, I got a part time job at a local wood shop. It was like I died and went to heaven. Using great power tools with wood that I didn’t have to pay for, who could want for more. One of the first things that struck me was the tremendous amount of scrap generated by the shop. I could not bring myself to toss wood...
