Outdoor Furniture #10: Patio Planter Boxes - Day 1

06-05-2012 02:04 AM by Retsof | 0 comments »

I started a new project today. I’m building two large patio planter boxes. The final dimensions should be close to 41” long x 24” wide x 20” high. I’m working from Woodsmith’s Outdoor Woodworking book. Here’s a link to their website: http://woodsmithstore.com/w1021.html There were a lot of cuts to make for this build. The diagrams for this project are pretty detailed and that’s a good thing because there is no cut list provided....

Guitar Rack #1: My next project

06-04-2012 12:01 AM by paullymac | 1 comment »

I decided to make a guitar rack to hold up my guitar off the floor. It has spent several years on a cheap metal stand on the floor. I got some sapele outs to use for the short parts, but the backbone of the rack will be made with maple. So far I made the bottom supports (with the general guideline/plan to the left of the supports) I plan to dovetail the supports onto a plank across the back. This first one is hand done with a hand saw and chisels (I’ve used a handsaw and ro...

Intarsia Basics #5: Welcome back, Let's Start Adding Spacers and Shaping Our Pieces

05-24-2012 03:01 AM by KoryK | 11 comments »

Thanks for joining in again and I apologize for the delay. Hand is doing a lot better and it feels great to be back in the shop. Thanks for your patience and your encouragement to get better. In this section we will focus on shaping and sanding our pieces. In my opinion, this is the most important part of the process. Depth is what makes a piece really stand out and the more depth you use in your project the better you’re going to like the end result. We have all seen intarsia pieces...

Practicing Hand Cut Dovetails #1: First 4 Attempts

05-22-2012 04:18 AM by Mosquito | 20 comments »

So for whatever reason, I decided that I wanted to learn how to make hand cut dovetails. I don’t really have an implementation for it on a project yet. I just wanted to start trying something new, and begin acquiring skills that I haven’t tried before. These are all cut tails first. So far I’ve got 4 sets made, and you can clearly see the improvements… First off, I tried on a scrap piece of random pine that I had. Needless to say, they’re not very good...

Simple, fast plater box holder with handtools

05-20-2012 11:59 PM by tirebob | 2 comments »

My lovely wife was on me to make a simple box to hold a planter, so I went out to the shop today and whipped this up out of some old, unfinished flooring pieces. Dead simple with one DT per side. She wanted it rustic so it was the perfect chance to try and cut them quick and see how it all fit together. For a straight of the saw tail sides and a chop to the base line, with virtually no paring, I was more than pleased! Finished it all off with a bit of BLO and 3 coats of amber shellac and a bi...

Roubo Hybrid Bench from start to finish #2: What I got from what I had

05-16-2012 01:43 PM by Jamie Speirs | 5 comments »

Well the thing I love about wood especially an orphan piece like this one Is that it can only get better, I hope :) It looks huge and if it were not for the flaws It would make a big bench Ok, it aint going to be a 6’ bench If I could only use the full piece I like the idea of one side being rustic The rot on the right hand corner means that I’m going to have to get a much narrower tha the 18” that I hoped for Well I did not s...
