The making of a Telescope Eyepiece box #1: Telescope Eyepiece box

1649 days ago by Dennis Fletcher | 1 comment »

I have been commisioned by a young man who is an ameture astronomer to build for him an eyepiece box. That is, a box that will hold all of his eyepieces, his filters and his maps without any damage to the pieces. He travels with his telescopes every year to SC, I believe, so it needs to be secure enough to not open up on him and to withstand an accidental tumble or two. I have had to learn how to use a dovetail jig and have done pretty well with it. However, due to my lack of proper pla...

Game Calls #2: Scratch Box Turkey Calls

509 days ago by ghost5 | 1 comment »

After posting a few of these neat little calls I thought some other folks might like to know how to make them. They are an easy project and another way to use some of that scrap wood. The easiest way to make a scratch box is to have a dedicated mortiser set up with a 1/2”cutter but since I don’t have one here is how I do it. If you do have one you can quickly see how to use it to accomplish what I am doing. I start with a 1 & 5/8”“x4” piece 1/2” t...

974 days ago by topcat | 1 comment »

I’ve been at it since Thursday, gathering materials and and being a “wild wood whacker.” This was what it looked like at the end of Friday;From Yala, Hakim and Michelle Since then I’ve been curring shelves, drawer parts, countertop and shelf edging. Gluing and screwing and jointing and joining. In 4 days, I’ve put in about 40 hours. Today is more assembly! Hopefully I can have it ready for a primer and first coat by tomorrow morning!

Adirondack Chairs #1: Halfway into the White Oak version

308 days ago by Jacob C. Heffelfinger | 1 comment »

This is the first entry in this series, but I’m already halfway into the White Oak version of my Rockler Adirondack chair. I’m also building a Western Red Cedar version, but haven’t started dimensioning the boards yet. I’m starting the blog at this point in the project, because 1. I wasn’t a member of LJ before starting the project and 2. I need to get my thoughts down about what I’ve learned so far, because this is really my first TRUE hardwood project...

Anyway this is kinda the idea I have been thinking about for a while. Laminated pine to the rimu and cut. Just needs a good sand. Then the base and the top. I do have to make another top plate as the last one was not quite long enough. Anyway it will be sanded and then glued and screwed. We need ...

Vermont Lap Desk, part two

463 days ago by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, hand is healed up, for now. Got out a handsaw and trimmed things to length. Someone asked about making dovetails for the corners? Had to rearrange the bench a bit, first. That yellow Miter Box was moved around to the front of the corner of the bench. Cleaned off an area in front of it, as well. Laid out for a few cuts Had to add some bits of scrap wood to the miter box, to get rid of any flex. C-clamp to hold things in place. Tried a coping saw at first. Hurt ...

TV Stand #1: Progess is very slow...cutting the new plywood, the angles and the splines

1078 days ago by Angela | 1 comment »

This is actually the second in the series but I didn’t understand how the blog system works. The first in the series is a separate blog entitled TV stand. I will eventually put this on my website in more detail but here’s a shorter version of some of the problems and success of making my TV stand. I wish I had some plans or I had more knowledge about building furniture. Because I don’t the project just isn’t moving along very fast. What started me on this project was ...

Well today was an extremley busy day my dad and I went and did a tree clean up job for a guy in my scout troop.

So I put the end aprons on, made the clamp bars and got the holes drilled in them notched them out and put the slots in the bench top pieces and ...
