Shaker Table - Woodworkers Fighting Cancer #1: Hot Knife, meet Butter

1591 days ago by Kerry Drake | 0 comments »

March is here and by end of the month I hope to have the top of the built-in together and installed, and of course the Woodworkers Fighting Cancer table build (feel free to check it out and maybe make a small donation if you are so inclined). Last weekend I finished jointing and planeing the faces of the Cherry for top of the built-in. All finished it ended up just over 1” thick, so that will make a nice top. I still need to cut and joint the edges and I actually think I’ll e...

Bookshelves #1: raw materials

1592 days ago by Vick | 6 comments »

I decided to try my hand with 8/4 stock and save a little money by re-sawing all the stock myself. Looking back at it, I guess it was worth the $100 I saved but it was more of a hassle then I thought it was going to be.

WoodShow Score and Fun with other LJ's

1595 days ago by jockmike2 | 15 comments »

Had a great time today with Rustic Rick his wife Nancy, Billie J. and his wife Lou Ann, SteveMI, and Myself and my lovely wife Kris. I got a cheaper version of the Gripper from Woodline USA, at $16.00, and a router for my Dremel. Oh man they had some wood to die for, we just had no way to get it home. I’ll have to let the other guys tell you what they got cause I wasn’t paying to much attention. Needless to say I couldn’t find any Lathe tools to speak off. Or any thing else ...

Another first attempt

1596 days ago by Kristoffer | 7 comments »

When I picked up my new (new to me) table saw, the guy threw in a dado set. I’ve been wanting to build a couple of the modular storage units that I saw in The Complete Small Workshop for a while, but I didn’t want to go through the whole straight edge/router set up for this many dados and rabbets. So, here is my first attempt at using a dado stack on the table saw. Keep in mind that the shelves are supposed to be a little loose so that they can slide in and out or be removed.It di...

Dowel joinery

1597 days ago by NewPilgrim | 5 comments »

My neighbor and new buddy Paul has been teaching me how to do dowel joints, pretty fun. I am new to wood working so I am very appreciative when someone can demonstrate their skills for me. I am currently building a wooden, Victorian-style, (vintage) baby gate for our stairs. I am trying to match my current stair rail and baluster look-and-feel. I bought some Hemlock balusters, shoe rail/fillets and a nice hand rail. I’ve conditioned, and stained it to match, and so far it looks good....

1600 days ago by NBeener | 6 comments »

I found this article, the other day, and keep coming back to it—both literally and in my mind. Figured I’d share it. I plan to keep all of this in mind as I begin my 2nd night stand…. Maybe others have similar suggestions for increasing precision…. — How to get Precisionby Bob Smalser — Make a story stick for each project.
