Shop Notes #18: Wine Rack Prototype

04-17-2018 04:17 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

I spent the majority of the day yesterday finishing up the last elements of the wine rack I’m making from black acacia. I needed four stretchers to hold the front and back together, and as it’s been for all aspects of this project, I was afraid that the design was too flimsy. The stretchers were to be turned from acacia as well with tenons on each end. I decided on through tenons only because I could drill through both sides at the same time, ensuring that the mortises would li...

Bath Stool #1: Selecting the wood

04-07-2018 09:01 PM by Diego Cassels | 2 comments »

In this stage I choose the wood I want to use, usually I buy it, but this time I got lucky and unearth this beatiful “quebracho” wood from the backyard. Its a dark red and VERY hard wood. Its about 2” thick.

Bath Stool #2: Bath Stool

Well here is how I go around my projects. I enjoy this faze of the project. First a general idea of what I would like the project to look like. Then I look for inspiration from the web, general dimentions and so on. I found this, traditional japanese bath stool. This is FROM a google search.

Hand tool workbench build #3: First lamination

03-28-2018 06:13 AM by SauceMan | 4 comments »

I’ll keep this one brief, but I am pretty psyched—today / two days ago mark a big milestone in my build. I finally laminated some wood together. What felt like lots of crosscutting and ripping with my hand tools (and planing) finally led to this. Here you can see six layers of 8/4 hard maple laminated together. That makes about half of the workbench top for my split-top roubo style workbench. You’ll see there’s still more hand planing to do, but I plan on doing ...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #18: Last drawer and aPIP

03-26-2018 02:02 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Just getting caught up….had a few health issues over the weekend… Had a blank for the skinny drawer’s front, cut and fitted to the opening..needed to rip a board down to make it, and these three parts… And, with my usual luck..the two side pieces were 3/4” too short….made do, anyway… Front gets through dovetails, to match the other drawer. Saw a few lines.. Chop about half of one side’s pins, flip the board over, and pop the rest ou...

Trip to the Blue Borg….wound up with a pair of CLEAR 1×6 x 4’ boards….Got those cut to length….had to rip the fancy boards to remove a couple bad knots.. Both boards had a knot like this….Figured out how wide I needed for the panel…made a couple rip cuts. Has more waves than the N. Korean Cheer Squad….We have ways.. Also cleaned up the edges on the “new” boards, was finally able to glue up a panel.. I also cut grooves i...

Shop Notes #13: Really Lousy Estimating

03-19-2018 03:51 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

I started out with a goal to produce seven jewelry cabinets by the end of this week, three in sapele and four in walnut. Along the way last week, I had to set three aside—to be finished later. Milling up the door frame elements, I only made enough for one (and a half!) sapele unit. I thought I would have lots of extra walnut, but it was just enough for four. I normally mill these with an up cut straight bit, but changed things up this time. This setup produced pretty good results...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #16: Catching up,2....case done, door start

03-19-2018 02:47 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, face frame out of the clamps. Stuck against the case, to mark out where to put a few screw holes at… These two came out, once the frame was laying on the bench.. Scratch awl to make a starter hole for the 3/8” forstner bit. Then drill a pilot hole.. Once all the holes were done, I moved the frame off the bench, and placed the case on the bench…Had an extra hole to fill. It just gets a counter sink. Bead of glue run around where the frame meets the case...
