Restoration Of Table, Completed!!!!!

08-05-2012 06:23 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 11 comments »

When my grandad was a carpenter he worked in Aras an Uachtairain (the irish presidents house), he brought this table home from there one day when he was in his 20’s because it was going to be thrown out, he did some repairs and salvaged it. But after being used for 60 years (which the first governor of ireland wrote on the table) and then being used another 40 years when my grandad got it, it was in pretty bad shape. My granny said i could do what i wanted to do with it, because she had...

All pine, 10 shelf unit.82” H X 12.5” D X 21” W(The nice part of making your own stuff is that you can make the piece to fit just right in the space you want it in.)The top, middle and bottom shelves are permanently a...

More photos available on my blog: Pallet Craft! Hello Readers! This past weekend, a major trend took place, it rained constantly and unrelentlessly.

Pallet Entertainment center! This is probably the most exciting project for me since the pallet wood table that many of my readers saw in my fi...

Band Saw Sled - 60 Degrees

07-27-2012 10:59 PM by Bob Simmons | 4 comments »

The 60 degree band saw sled as seen in the woodworking video is made from scrap. It took 15 minutes to build from scrap material. As you can see, it is used when cutting small wood pieces for wood inlay banding & parquetry. What kind of band saw blade is being used? ...Wood Slicer – 1/2”, skip tooth, 3-4 TPI. It provides an excellent cut. Can a 60 degree sled be used on the table saw? ...Yes, of course. In fact, my shop is equipped with one as well. Why do you use ...

Walnut Platform Bed #2: Wings and disco lights ??

07-27-2012 10:13 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 12 comments »

The platform bed will have large, what I call wings, on the sides and foot. I glued a section of walnut on the side wings up near the head. These will serve as as sort of side tables. the wings are 5/4 in thickness and have recessed trays in them. I chose an ogee edge for them and routed the outer edges of the ‘wings’ .Using a tray or bowl cutting bit the depression was routed using both a bearing template of mdf and a simple sled to clean out the inside of it. I love routi...

Walnut Platform Bed #1: The wood and initial assembly

07-27-2012 09:39 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 8 comments »

I’ve built a bed for my oldest daughter and one for the wife and I. My youngest, finally on her own after college with a job and an apartment requested a bed too. My first was a raised panel oak bed. Ours is a maple platform with storage beneath it. This one will be very different. A floating platform bed. She requested Walnut and curly cherry. I went to look over the wood at Highland Woods in NH and decided that the curly cherry had very little contrast to the walnut so I chose to u...

All in all it was a great event with a lot of great entries. I would like to thank all those who participated in the 1st Annual Whirligig Wars Contest. When I presented the idea of holding a whirligig contest to Steve Ramsey (Woodworking For Mere Mortals) he and I agreed it would be a fun summer event. The response was overwhelming with over 6000 video views of the videos relating to the contest and many great comments from woodworkers all over. So it was decided early on that this would be ...

Sawdust, shavings, and a lot of water in these heat wave shop exercises has brought me to my newest updates on this Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table.
