Art Nouveau Coffee Table #3: Gluing Legs & Runners, Then Layout for carving.

03-16-2015 01:46 PM by Dennis Zongker | 18 comments »

This coffee table base system is rather large, the top is elliptical shaped at 60” x 80”. Right now the base weights around 450 pounds, then when done carving should weight about 250 pounds. This Art Nouveau base took me a full ten hour day to draw in my cut lines by scaling off the 1/4” clay model. So now it’s fun time using grinders that have chain saw cutters and King Arthur Holey Galahad coarse grinding discs. I’m setting up a plastic tarp around one of...

Shaker Style End table #6: Drawer build, and a start of the finishing

03-16-2015 03:42 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

GrandBRATS screaming, and a-fightin….too much noise upstairs, time to retreat to the Dungeon Shop, and LOCK the door behind me…. Weeeelll now. Decided to build that drawer. Cut the sides to size. Then set up the router table to cut some grooves. Had to clear all the junk off of it first. Set a 1/4” straight bit. Set up the fence with a pair of clamps holding it in place. Tried a piece of scrap, first, just in case… Ok, that is set up and waiting…a...

Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #2: The Tops

03-16-2015 12:55 AM by brianb6603 | 2 comments »

Well, the tops have taken longer than I anticipated. But it has turned out nice. The original Short Block V8 designed with a Torsten box top but I wanted a solid top. After lots of consideration I decided that I wanted the top to be Baltic Birch laminated on edge for the top. This would be consistent with the leg construction and would make for a very solid top. However this presented an issue as Baltic Birch is not cheap (best price here in Oregon, USA is $55.00 for a 5×5’ sheet...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #7: Fixing mistakes

03-15-2015 04:42 PM by ic3ss | 6 comments »

I forgot to update last week. I didn’t get much done because I was busy fixing a mistake. In episode 6 I showed a picture of the end tenon and the lead screw channel cut out. The weird thing is that the huge mortise cut into the end of the tenon. The mortise was too wide and I didn’t notice until last week I was thinking about it when I was in bed. That’s when I do my best thinking. I got up in the morning and checked the drawing and I was right. The drawing says the mortise...

Fancy End Table #1: Midway through project

03-12-2015 11:48 PM by PeteCollin | 0 comments »

Hello All, I have an acquaintance who has done some large favors for me over the last couple of years. I was compelled to recompense him somehow, eventually insisting he let me make for him the woodshop project of his choice. After powwowing with his wife, they came back with three choices of an end table, and this is the one i decided to make: [URL=http://s242.photobucket.com/user/pac1for/media/EisTabOrig.jpg.html][IMG]http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff313/pac1for/EisTabOrig.j...

Dutch Tool Chest #6: Tongin' and a Groovin'

03-12-2015 04:31 AM by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

After i finished the previous steps i decided, despite what Schwarz says about it, to put some finish on the inside. No pictures, figured no need. I masked off all the edges i didnt want anything on, then applied roughly 2-3 coats. Really all i did was use up the last of my Zinnzer clear waxed shellac, will apply some wax in the future. But onto what this part of the blog is about. I bought, off ebay a year or 2 ago, a decent Stanley #45 with a basic set of cutters and most of the parts...

Dutch Tool Chest #5: screw it to it and put on the lingerie...

03-11-2015 09:56 PM by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

Broke out the eggbeater drill, brace with countersink bit, and a screw driver. Marked out my holes with combo square and awl. Drove in some #10 1 1/4 slotted screws by hand, ended up with a blister. . 4 per side per shelf, overkill i believe, planned on only 3 but apparently my subconscious kicked in and made me do 4. they are all clocked inline with the grain for you ocd individuals (wish i had some Citric acid to remove the zinc plating) I shoulda went with my first idea and coun...

Dutch Tool Chest #3: construction begins (dovetail sides to bottom)

03-11-2015 02:04 PM by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

It started with me cutting my sides, bottom, and shelves/dividers to rough length with my xcut D8 on sawbench, then cleaning/squaring up the ends with my Stanley #4 1/2 and the sides with my #5 1/2 and #8. I then ganged sides up in my moxon and go in house and refresh my memory on layout with Megan Fitzpatricks youtube video . I then proceed to mark out my tails and to cut them. I ran into some trouble, what little practice i had with cutting some dovetails was with completely seaso...
