Spring cleaning in Fall still no fun !!!!!!!!

09-21-2009 04:07 AM by Built2Last | 2 comments »

A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #3: Back on Track

11-22-2010 04:55 AM by Don | 2 comments »

Well I’m back on track after last weeks screw up with the tenons. I’ve got them all fixed and fitting properly now. I’m relearning a lot more than I expected with the mortise and tenons. I’ve done them before but it’s been about 20 years and I forgot a lot more than I realized. I finished cutting the cloud lifts on the legs and got all the parts for the base to a point where I was able to start dry fitting them. Now I mostly just have a lot of sanding and I...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #11: Some days it just doesn't pay...

02-23-2011 07:22 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

I had an extremely frustrating evening. We had 3 hours to work on our projects and I seem to make mistakes every other minute!!! I even poked myself with largeish splinter when the stupid dreaded miserable *^%$#@ rebate plane blew out the corner of the tenon I was trimming to size! Yeah I now realize I should have backed it up, but it and I were fighting all evening, I eventually switched to a rasp (what is the emoticon for frustrated woodworker!) I have to hand it to Ryan though, he of...

Construction Steps for Kevin Rodel Arts and Craft Chairs #1: Crest Rail Construction

05-03-2013 04:16 AM by kbiniowa | 2 comments »

Quartersawn oak blanks are cut to 14” long and 1 5/8” thick. The upper crest rails are 3” wide and the lower rails are 2 ½” wide. I chose to construct the chair with floating tenons so that I could mill and cut all of the rails to the exact same length. A bench-top mortising machine is used to make the mortises for the upper and lower crest rails. The 3/8” chisel is set exactly parallel to the machine’s fence, then an auxiliary fence is installed and shimmed to the proper angle required. Sto...

Ultimate China Cabinet #2: More of the build for the Ultimate China Cabinet

11-24-2014 06:47 PM by bkseitz | 2 comments »

More of the build for the Ultimate China Cabinet [prior photos]. I made heavy use of my Kreg Jig for this project along with a Rockler Shelf Jig. The carcass is made from birch plywood and the base is made of select pine purchased from Home Depot. Base uses t-nut levelers and provides a flat level surface to mount the carcasses. —wish I had purchased the Kreg HD jig prior as it would have been more applicable for the base. Most of the plywood breakdown was done on my assembly t...

Building For The Wife #3: Constructing drawers and breadboard no1

09-18-2015 06:06 PM by fatman51 | 2 comments »

I had a nice little cabinet, and some drawer glides milled out of an old chunk of exterior decking lumber, but no drawers and no bread board. Anxious to remedy this, I have been spending my evenings in my shop. My first job was to mill the back and side panels for the drawers out of forty year old reclaimed pine 1×12s. Then I picked out a piece of knotty pine for my front panels. I put some thought into what sort of joint I wanted to use for my drawers. On ordinary...

Cut stopped dados for drawer bottom and DVD partitions5. Glue up drawers and clean up joints.And ended with a group ...

Maple/oak project/desk #4: Into the land of stopped dados, and miss-cut bottoms

06-30-2015 09:35 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, last time, I had the four sides about together. Clamped them up into a box like shape As I needed some more layout work done. Had a 2’ x2’ sheet of 1/4” Oak plywood to try to cut into a bottom And, in theory, I could just measure the two directions and mark things out…..in theory yes, in this shop….Nope. Measured three times, laid out the lines, cut leaving the lines….1” off on the front to back measure? Ok, We’ll deal with th...

Insulated Garage Doors #1: Insulated Sectional Overhead

04-12-2012 11:02 PM by Peter | 2 comments »

I was inspired last week to find yet another use for my Sing Honeycomb Panels. We’re launching a line of insulated panels for overhead garage doors. I’ve noticed that too many nice homes have dinged up garage doors. It’s because garage doors are expensive to repair. You don’t want to replace a panel for a golf ball dent, so you let it go until the damage is beyond cosmetic. Soon, you’ve run into the garage door with your car or time has made the edges drafty, so ...

Maloof Low Back Chairs #1: Rough up

01-18-2014 02:02 AM by Dave G | 2 comments »

The hard maple table displayed in my projects needs chairs. We have a small house and a small dining room. The chairs must slide mostly under the table out of the way. Another LJ displayed his low back chair and the idea was born! I bought Charles Brocks plans and video. I chose hard maple to match the table. Sure it’s hard. But once you’re grinding with carbide tools and sanding to sculpt it doesn’t matter much. I’m keeping track of my hours because I...
