Life as an Amateur Woodworker #58: My second major project of the year!

11-01-2015 12:49 PM by PhilBello | 5 comments »

I am sure this will ring bells with many married members, I have got to the stage where it would be nice to go to bed at night, without having to cling onto the edge, to stop myself falling out, because my significant other has hogged near enough the whole bed. We would have liked a 2m x 2m bed, but it just was not feasible in our small bedroom, so we decided on a 1.8m x 1.9m mattress, at least I should be able to lie on my back. The first job was buying the mattress, so I had the correct ...

Shop stuff #10: Saved from the fire

10-31-2015 12:41 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I finally got some editing done on a bunch of footage of working this piece of Maple that I rescued from the fire wood pile last year. It is going toward the box build I am working on. I have no real plan, just a vague idea and I am letting the wood take me it’s own way to get there. https://youtu.be/ZWDVLtvamCY

Splinters of thought #7: How Do You Measure up?

10-30-2015 01:01 AM by bearkatwood | 5 comments »

Recently there have been articles discussing tape measure maintenance, selection and how to use them in the shop. My opinion is to use them at the cutoff table for large crosscuts with a radial arm or chop saw, and leave them there. There should not be a dedicated place in your woodworking tool cabinet for a tape measure. The closest I would come would be a fabric tape to measure curved work. I worked in construction for a while and used a tape for everything, I just don’t see their pla...

Butterfly Dining Table #3: Curved Rail Joinery

10-26-2015 09:42 PM by Guy Dunlap | 5 comments »

After I take the rails of the bending forms, I true up one edge and then rip them to size. I layout for the angled cuts on the curved ends, and then cut them with the miter saw. All the joinery for the curved rails are then cut with the Festool Domino. I also go through my clamping strategy for when I’m ready for glue up. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To get updates of this build as I go along, please follow me on Instagram – https://instagram.com/guys...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #3: Legs and Grill Work

10-21-2015 02:43 AM by JimYoung | 3 comments »

We’ll it’s been a while since I updated my desk build blog. I had 40 mortises to square up on the legs, so I’ve taken the “15 minute” approach to this build. Whenever I had a little spare time I would knock out another mortise. With all of the mortises done, it was on to the tenons. I bought a Rockler heavy duty tenon jigs a while back, and tried it once with mixed results. Prior to that I have been using a home made jig for my router that holds pieces flat...

choosing what is right for you #3: Kreg pocket hole jig R3

10-16-2015 08:47 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 1 comment »

I’ve seen the commercials, I knew I had a couple project where this would come in handy, I debated and procrastinated for months. Finally I decided to buy one of these jigs, I decided on the R3 because the sound of $40 vs $100 was a better bet. Overall it’s a great little tool to have on hand. How ever there are certain things they don’t mention so I will. There screws are not as self tapping as they claim. A self tapping screw should bite and grab these one you need clamp y...
