Walnut Lamp #1: Inlays

09-18-2015 04:53 PM by BobFrankly | 1 comment »

This article comes partway through the project. I’ve completed the shaping on the base, and picked my pieces for the neck of the lamp. I’m doing some inlays for the sides of the neck, Orange Osage into the Walnut.I made the cuts on the table saw with a crosscut sled and a scrap piece of 2×4 braced against the sled fence to hold it in place. Card Scrapers made short work of any spots that were too wide as I tested the inlays above.Glue up was interesting, the thin end of th...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #2: Marking and mortising

09-10-2015 11:57 PM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

Continuing on with my desk project… I milled all of the lumber roughly to size. I left everything a little oversized in case any internal stress warped the boards. Also, my planer blades were shot and leaving raised lines. For now I’m sticking with the HSS blades and got two sets on Amazon for a decent price. The new blades cut like butter. After a few days, I dimensioned all the parts for the legs and all the end pieces. Next, I marked all of the mortise locations. I ...

Found a vise to use: part two

09-09-2015 05:45 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, hitched a ride to WalMart and bought some Lag screws, and some washers….$2.08 counting tax. Borrowed two of my son’s drills. Also used one of mine. Pilot holes for the lags to go into. Son has an electric impact driver. Added a long extension, and drove the lags home. had to lay ON the floor for this little job.. Dug around through the scrap piles….found some 5/4 pine….way too long and a bit too wide…we have ways of dealing with that… ...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #1: Getting started

09-06-2015 04:33 PM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

I’ve been working my way up to this project over the last few years. I have an old “80’s oak” desk in my home office and while it is fine, the style is out of date. When I started in woodworking, my hope was to learn enough and hone my skills to be able to replace my desk some day. I can across this design by Kevin Rodel on the Fine Woodworking site, but there was not much information on it just a few photos. I came across a free plan from Mr. Rodel (FWW July/Aug...

Built-In Ironing Board Cabinet #4: Door Success!

09-03-2015 02:56 PM by Chuck McIntyre | 0 comments »

Got up this morning eager to test my theory on what was going wrong with my door. Just as I had thought last night, I wasn’t going deep enough into the bit. Moved the fence back to line up with the nut above the bearing and, BAM, it went together like a champ!

Built-In Ironing Board Cabinet #3: Raised Panel Door Fabrication

09-03-2015 01:48 AM by Chuck McIntyre | 0 comments »

It has been a while since there has been an update on this cabinet. I have gotten a little side-tracked with other projects. I will be working on a torsion box assembly / outfeed table this weekend. As you can see in the pictures, I don’t have a space big enough to put this door together. I am using a Freud raised panel bit set to make these doors. It is my first attempt at raised panel doors. All the pictures were taken during dry fitting. In the first picture you can see the rails ...
