Half scale Bombe # 3

03-09-2012 01:13 PM by KPW | 4 comments »

Got some more pics of the progress on the chest. Draw bottoms,draw sides and backs. Started on the feet. I cut them on my trusty old craftsman jig saw. The curves were too tight to do it on the band saw. I,ll probably go through 6 or 7 blanks before I get 4 that I like. Ball and claw in this scale is tuff. Not giving up yet but may have to go with just a simple cabriolet foot. Wish me luck.

I have a Mark 5 shopsmith with a 4 inch jointer attachment.The right side (or adjustment) side of the jointer is not parallel to left side.Is there anyway to adjust it? I am unable to get a straight edge. My woodstarts bowing and just gets worse with each pass.

Moving right along

03-04-2012 01:15 AM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

Yesterday I was able to get the four rails for the head and foot boards sanded down to the correct thickness along with a rabbit to hold the stiles. Then I cut the tenons on the rails and cut a test mortise for the legs. Today I put six hours in the shop and got the mortises cut on the legs along with a dry fit. I cut the tenons for the first 15 stiles for the head board. I will get the other 15 tenons cut on the stiles for the foot board and then will start sanding all of these pieces so th...

Day one

03-01-2012 02:11 AM by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #1: Top&Legs Jointed, Starting to layout the Wooden Screws.

02-29-2012 03:52 PM by Mauricio | 11 comments »

A while black I posed a forum topic asking for folks advise on how to use this piece of wood for a workbench. A cabinet maker I bought my band saw from gave it to me for free. It was made from two slabs from a green oak tree so it cupped pretty bad. It had been used as a table for a restaurant. After assimilating everyone’s advice I decided I would cut out the piths, re-glue the top and use it to make a French workbench like Roy Underhill does in one of his shows. I love the splayed...

Shop Doings #1: How many clamps?

02-27-2012 12:46 AM by SalvageCraft | 20 comments »

I started on a small project tonight. I guess I got a little carried away with the clamps. Somewhere after the first ten, I just got curious to see how many more would fit. The really disturbing part is, I’ve forgotten what I was even making, and I can’t see through the tangle of clamps well enough to make any guesses! So, off to hang out on LJs…

Blacker House Chair #2: More progress on the Blacker house chair

02-21-2012 01:11 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 0 comments »

He now has the legs and the upper and lower stretchers done with the exception of shaping the top of the back legs. That can’t be done until we fit the crest rail. We worked on it for 12 hrs on Saturday and he cut the indent in the feet and shaped the tappers. To cut the tappers we had to make three different jigs and six different setups for all the different shapes. I had see in a book how to shape the tappers with a stationary sander but that was with square legs and on...

Wooden Double Action Hinge

02-17-2012 06:47 AM by Joshuah | 17 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I posted a project of a wedding ring box I made for my wife. It actually received quite a few comments about how I made the hinges…which I guess we are calling double action hinges. Since there was quite a few questions on how I made it, I decided that I should probably make a tutorial, considering I learn so much from tutorials on here. The box had hinges that were only about 4 cm, but for this I am doing larger ones so my camera picks up the steps better. ...

Pennsylvania Spice Box for Mom #1: Milling Wood and Cutting Parts

02-16-2012 08:21 PM by SPHinTampa | 4 comments »

Like most of you out there, I think my mother is the most amazing woman on the planet, and I wanted to find a way to express that to her. My mom’s birthday is on January 2nd, I feel very bad that she always seems to get short changed on the birthday celebration because everyone is tired from Xmas and New Years. I wanted to give her a very personal present this year to show how important she is too me. I was considering a jewelery box and when I saw this project in FWW, I decided ...
