Teacher's Podium #1: The beginning...

09-14-2012 05:26 AM by MT_Stringer | 0 comments »

I am building a teacher’s podium for my niece as a college graduation present. She is currently teaching third grade in one of the local schools. My project has taken a lot longer than expected mainly because it has been so hot. I have recorded several temps in the 101 – 102 range during August. But finally, I got my split system air conditioner installed and up and running. Now my one car garage is a cool and constant 77 deg F. I had blown in insulation added (R38) to the atti...

Workbench #6: Skirts & Vises

09-05-2012 02:00 AM by twobyfour16 | 3 comments »

So, the top needed skirts, obviously, so time to laminate again. This time, I used 3 pieces of 1×8 black walnut. This gave me a skirt that is 2 1/4” thick, and 6 3/4” wide – after cleaning up the edges. I glued up enough blanks for the front skirt, two end skirts, and chops for both vises. I did not get very many pictures of this process, as I had plenty of lamination pics earlier….I will say that these skirts were BEEFY! And heavy. So, now I had to figure...

Simple, Useful, Free

09-03-2012 04:59 AM by TDog | 4 comments »

No I’m not marketing. I’m just amazed at how it’s not the fancy pieces or most expensive pieces that tend to get the most use. I think by far many expensive and or “fancy” if I may, pieces of furniture or any item for that matter does not see as much use as more common items. (Duh you say) :) I am convinced that there is not much peace of mind to be found in in objects that are almost “roped off” in our homes, offices, or studies, workshops even i...

My First Workbench #13: Day 13: Dry fit the base!

08-25-2012 01:54 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

As usual, for the pictures, click here. Today was very exciting! I decided to finish the base joinery prep once and for all and powered through the last 3 tenons and mortises. I wrapped up with a dry run of the base and I am very happy with the results (though there are a few minor glitches to take care of tomorrow…more on that below). To begin with, I was not at all thrilled with continuing the tenon cutting. I have been using a makeshift saw horse (2 pieces of offcuts from t...
