My homework:Cherry nite stands #1: Doin' it backwards !

03-03-2013 10:43 PM by theoldfart | 5 comments »

As a project for my furniture making course I decided to make a couple of nite stands for our bedroom. I have a good supply of air dried cherry for the carcass and some spalted maple for the drawer fronts. I drew up the plans myself and am ready to dive in. Since I’ve been skiing a lot lately, I needed to get myself in the right frame of mind so I.m doing the fun part first. I posted some pictures of possible veneer layouts for the drawer in the design forum and this was the over...

Game Calls #2: Scratch Box Turkey Calls

02-28-2013 05:14 PM by ghost5 | 1 comment »

After posting a few of these neat little calls I thought some other folks might like to know how to make them. They are an easy project and another way to use some of that scrap wood. The easiest way to make a scratch box is to have a dedicated mortiser set up with a 1/2”cutter but since I don’t have one here is how I do it. If you do have one you can quickly see how to use it to accomplish what I am doing. I start with a 1 & 5/8”“x4” piece 1/2” t...

Workbench Build #15: Moxon 3.. Almost done.. I think..

02-25-2013 02:47 AM by Airframer | 8 comments »

So, have you ever wondered how to plane a large piece of wood for a work bench without a workbench? Yep, me too lol. This was another day full of learning. Lesson one was that the blade I had on my band saw was too wide to cut the hard wood and that was why I was having so much trouble with drift. Number two was that my Bucks Brothers 6 1/2” block plane is actually a decent little worker now that I have tuned it up. Lastly… it is hard as hell trying to face plane 36 X 5 3/4 ...

Roubo #5: Stretchers

02-25-2013 02:16 AM by bondogaposis | 2 comments »

I made a little more progress this week. I now have the stretchers cut and fit. The first thing to do is to cut the mortises. It took a lot of fiddling and was pretty slow going with the mortises that are 2 1/2” deep by 3/4”. I could only get away with going about 3/16” w/ each pass that’s a lot of passes to get 2 1/2” deep on eight mortises. Next up was the tenons. These went much faster. Here they are roughed in using a dado on the table saw. I d...

Three New Projects

02-23-2013 05:05 AM by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

This pile of lumber may not look like much but it will magically turn in to two of my Fishy Coffee Tables and a Toy Box. :-) Turns out I need another 10 feet of white pine, so off to the store I go tomorrow. It makes it easy that a lot of the work for all three projects can be done ahead of time in a batch. Things like ripping the edges off the 2×4’s and ripping the 1×12 white pine into three pieces each. All of that was after I cut them into rough lengths so it would be ea...

Make a Folding Out Feed Table for your Table Saw

02-20-2013 05:22 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 16 comments »

This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...

Roubo #4: It's got legs!

02-19-2013 12:32 AM by bondogaposis | 6 comments »

I’ve been somewhat side tracked on this project but was able to get a few things accomplished. I was able to the cut mortises for the legs. Massive holes 2 1/2” deep. I had to get a special long pattern bit to able to use the plunge router. I had to make a couple of templates for the routing. The next step was fine tune the fit on the tenons and cut them to length. Once that was accomplished I wanted to rout the slot for the board jack. This is something that I thou...
