Shaker Sofa Table #2: Legs and Aprons

01-28-2013 01:50 AM by Douglas | 1 comment »

Since last part, I was able to get farther on the table. After letting the parts acclimate to the shop overnight, I milled all the parts to final dimensions. I then had to rip the front apron into horizontal strips, then cut the middle section vertically to make the drawer fronts, then re-glue the apron together to make the openings. Next I cut the stopped mortises in the legs to accept the apron tenons. After getting those finished, I noticed I’d made a mistake. I apparently did...

Kitchen Cabinets #2: Working on a countertop

08-31-2008 04:09 AM by Dan Lyke | 1 comment »

This weekend’s goal is getting the cabinet beside the stove to at least have a usable counter-top. We picked up a beaten up 10’x2’ glued up piece of maple countertop off of Craigslist for $50, and that’s becoming the surface for beside the stoive, and the narrow counter for under the window, with a backsplash cut from the scraps. Today I took a deep breath and cut the first pieces. As I said, the counter-top was pretty beat up with a few gaps, so as I sanded...

Spalted Maple Sofa Table #2: Milling and Gluing

09-16-2011 06:00 PM by superstretch | 1 comment »

TopThe spalted maple I had was about 5/4 rough. I would have loved to shave off a nice 3/8” or so to get them down to 3/4”, but my band saw was no where near up for the task. Off to the planer we go (after being ripped to width and jointed). LegsSince the boards I had were about 5/4, I couldn’t make the legs the desired 1.5” thick without gluing some together. Since the spalting and grain patterns were so varied, gluing two pieces together looked pretty gross....

Building an oak dining room table #1: It begins....

11-12-2012 10:11 PM by albachippie | 1 comment »

At last I have been given the go ahead by the client to manufacture the oak table. This is the sketchup drawing I did about 9months ago It was indicitive and not a final design. This was accepted along with the quote, but put on hold until further notice. Well I was called about 3 weeks ago and told to go ahead with the build, so I repriced, just to make sure that the timber was still within the budget, and ordered the oak. I collected it on Wednesday and quickly realised that there wa...

Milling Process for Rear Leg Construction

04-10-2013 10:03 PM by kbiniowa | 1 comment »

I am currently making six chairs and the process is truly time consuming. GrampaDoodie’s (Dale Peterson) did an excellent job describing the his chair making journey in his Lumberjock’s Blog. I highly recommend looking at this: Lumberjocks.com/GrampaDoodie/blog . I am not going to reinvent the wheel here, but show what steps I did differently than Grampa_Doodie or Kevin Rodel. Kevin Rodel suggested that one would construct a jig to hold lumber and then use a hand held router to...

Wonderful Things #2: Sort of a Chest with Slideout Draw Trays

04-22-2014 02:12 PM by brucethecontrarian | 1 comment »

She Who Must be Obeyed spake thus; Seek ye out the land of Ebay and secure these 40 vintage wooden trays that have been made known to me and bring them hence. Thereafter shall ye build a cabinet such that it will hold all my supplies of craft that I might practice on them. And ye shall make it so it fits in a specific place and is neither too large nor too small. As She had spoken, so was She obeyed. The draws came from an old police station in the town of Preston (Watling Street...

Dart Board Cabinet #1: Every project is an opportunity to learn

01-13-2012 05:23 AM by Willeh | 1 comment »

The wife and I have recently gotten into playing darts as a hobby. We’ve been playing in our basement on an old dart board that I inherited from my dad housed in a ratty cabinet that looks aweful. Im currently in a lul for projects as it is now cold outside and my garage/workshop is unheated and uninsulated and its too cold to work in at this time of year most of the time as any project of size requires having the garage door open to wheel out the table saw to have enough room to wor...

Grandma's Picture Frame #1: Thinking through the Design & Dimensions

02-09-2011 06:14 PM by spunwood | 1 comment »

My mother suggested that I make a picture frame for my grandmother’s 100th birthday. The party is in march, and the four of us (Stephanie, Beatrice, Elijah, and I) will be flying to New York. I looked online for table saw frames because I do not have much skil with or many bits for a router, and no router table. What I found was: http://americanwoodworker.com/blogs/projects/archive/2009/12/04/tablesaw-picture-frame.aspx This is a lovely and classic frame. The wood is beaut...
