My Benchcrafted Split Top Roubo build #1: Split Top Roubo base construction

12-26-2012 12:05 AM by jasondain | 8 comments »

This is part 1 of my blog on how I built my workbench. The bench is now complete but i’ll be adding the steps i used to build it and lots of photos here so others may benefit from what I learned in the process. Happy Reading! I constructed the base using 8/4 Sugar Maple. I had agonized a bit over the wood selection and considered soft-maple, white ash and even douglas fir as possibilities. I chose sugar maple for its durability as I wanted this to be the uber-workbench and I coul...

Upcoming projects

12-23-2012 05:46 PM by Pallirondack | 6 comments »

I have discovered a true love of building things, mostly with recovered lumber. The vast majority of my recovered lumber is in the form of recycled wooden pallets. I enjoy the challenge of designing and crafting different pieces, drawing on the available, free plans I can find online, coupled with my own modifications along the way. I am not a pro, finish carpenter so my creations are primarily rustic, outdoor patio/deck style pieces that should last a very long time if the end user takes ...

Pie Safe #1: A beginning

12-22-2012 01:34 PM by scamp238 | 5 comments »

My daughter and I are building a pie safe. Well, my daughter is building and i am supervising. She doesn’t seem to have much fear of the tools, so that is good. I have helped her with setting up the machines and giving advice, but she basically has done it all. She is 17 years old and a senior in high school. Anyway, here are a few pictures of what we have done so far. The design is roughly what is found in the 1988 Woodsmith magazine. I am pretty pleased with the results so far. ...

Cosmatesque #3: Cosmati Wood Inlay Banding - Part 3

12-21-2012 04:35 PM by Bob Simmons | 8 comments »

Watch how the Cosmati design is applied to wood inlay banding in Part 3 of this woodworking series. All the wooden segments have been cut on the band saw using cross cut sleds made in the workshop. The segments have been glued up to form the inlay banding “log’ and the woodworker is now prepared to joint an edge of the log so that thin strips of 3/32” veneer can be sliced on the band saw. A Rockler thin rip jig is placed and secured into the band saw miter gauge a dist...

Obelisks #2: Making an obelisk incense burner

12-19-2012 05:56 PM by Jim Jakosh | 16 comments »

Here are the steps I used to make an obelisk incense burner. I selected a 3 1/2” square by 7” long piece of pretty wood. Box elder in this case. I made a drawing to scale and then had to plan the steps in the process so I did not get ahead of my self because it would be impossible to do some of the steps out of order. Being an incense burner it need air flow to keep the cone burning. I started with the top vent holes while the block was whole. 4 -3/16 holes on a 3/4”...

Craftsman built-ins #8: Fireplace surround

12-16-2012 08:41 PM by mountainaxe | 2 comments »

Back in to the breach! As we approach ever nearer to Christmas day, my wife has been insisting that I return to the shop posthaste and build a fireplace surround for an electric unit we purchased last month so she can hang the stockings, etc. I figured that this project shouldn’t be that difficult. The fireplace itself contained instructions as to the opening size required. I already knew that I wanted to build a comprehensive unit based on a 1907 Stickley built-in design that inclu...
