Then see how to make 3/32” veneers of the wood designs on the band saw. The wood veneers can then be used to adorn furniture, jewelry boxes, and m...

Table Saw Outfeed Table #1: Reclaiming lumber

10-12-2012 02:38 PM by empeg9000 | 4 comments »

I have needed to build an outfeed table for over a year. I also am tired of using my table saw as a workbench. I replaced my stairs last year with a new set of oak stairs.

Here is the pile of lumber I have I set my Robland combo machine up Here are the pieces I selected for stretchers Douglas Fir 4X4X8 cut in half for the legs I cut my w...

Quick tips with The Woodworking Coach #2: Flattening a board with the help of hot glue and laminate shims

10-11-2012 05:03 PM by chidwickschool | 4 comments »

Here’s my take on a common challenge, how to flatten a wide board when you don’t have a wide jointer. I acknowledge up front that this is not including methods of flattening with hand tools, but rather, a practical method for the woodworker who owns a planer but not a jointer. The Woodworking Coach Ep.2 - Flattening a wide board with hot glue and laminate shims from Chidwick School on Vimeo.

Handcut Dovetail Jewelry Box

10-11-2012 09:35 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 15 comments »

This week I share with you a decorative box which features hand cut dovetail joints. This box is made of Mahogany and Pecan and its center piece being a Spalted Pecan Panel Lid. I am no authority on dovetails joints so I don’t go into a lot of detail on making hand cut dovetail joints. There are a lot of training videos and materials out there to reference off of. I used some of the pecan Which I had milled from free logs delivered to me by a tree service. When I re sawe...

Cocktail table for my wife's room. #4: Base is built!!

10-08-2012 12:58 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 16 comments »

I built the base over the weekend. I kinda wish I had gone a little thicker on the wood. Be that as it may, I like it. I cut all the wood 1.25 square. Of course when I tried the cross braces up against the legs I found an error in the thickness. I knew that ! ;) I have no idea why I didn’t think of it. Glue up was a nightmare. I leaned a huge lessons including this one: “Sometimes you have to make a jig!!! I am mostly out of the odd ball shapes business for a while but in the f...

After two more surgeries and almost a year, I am getting back to the shop to start woodworking again. Last year I made a “quilted cutting board” and have a few people offer to buy it, but I have no idea what to charge someone for this type of CB.

It took me two weeks to finish.

Exercises in Artisanship #29: The spoon makers tote! Part Three and final!

10-02-2012 11:15 PM by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

Hey friends, thanks for looking in again on what really is my final installment for this spoon makers tote! This piece went a little faster than I had originally thought it would go, but I had some time and inspiration so I went ahead with the flow of the tools. This is going to be much more of a practical piece to enjoy using, packaging some small tools, woods and spoons around. I left some tool marks with a fun and spirited opinion of wanting this work to look used and lived in. For me i...
