Period dressing mirror project #1: ground zero.

01-24-2012 06:13 AM by ELCfinefurniture | 0 comments »

I have two weeks before starting at NBSS. I have been kicking back to be honest before school starts however I wanted to still take on a project that bring me right up untill day one. I wanted something small, yet complex and involved.My wife loves her makeup and likes to agonize over it for a long time like a finish. Not that she needs it but its her thing. So I thought what more of a perfect piece to make then a period style dressing mirror. I am basing this one on a federal one from Bosto...

Building My Roubo Bench #2: (Mis)Adventures in Getting the Material

01-18-2012 04:37 AM by Andy Panko | 6 comments »

At some point in December, I decided I’d be building my bench out of Douglas Fir. As stated in Chris’s book, Doug Fir is stiff and moderately hard. It isn’t that heavy, but given the amount of material I’ll be using on the bench, the final product should be heavy enough. Also as recommended in the book, I realized that a big box store would be a fine place to get the lumber. 2×12s are readily available at every Home Depot and Lowes near me. I have a good tabl...

Building My Roubo Bench #1: Why I Decided to Build This

01-17-2012 03:13 AM by Andy Panko | 4 comments »

So after reading Christopher Schwarz’s book Workbenches: From Design and Theory to Construction and Use, I decided it was time I built myself a “real” workbench. I’ve had various bench-like structures that I’ve used as assembly tables, clamping areas, clutter storage, etc. My current “bench” is basically a large custom cabinet base with a formica top and an integrated Kreg measuring fence built on it that I use for making cuts on my miter saw....

Adirondack chair: part 1

01-16-2012 04:37 PM by Hopman | 4 comments »

Oh boy, i may have bitten off more than i can chew. After a couple easy wine barrel stave candle holders, i decided to give an adirondack chair a shot. With some rough measurements and pictures i found on the web, i took my first stab today. First, i realized this project will use almost an entire barrel. 17 staves i think. It’s going to be HEAVY. First i layed out the staves for each part of the chair. Most of the day was spent putting the chair back together, and then assembling one o...

Making a Texas Star

01-15-2012 04:56 AM by iltws2 | 19 comments »

I would like to start out by saying the projects listed on this site really show some of the best talent and creativeminds ever amassed on one website. Makes me jealous. Any way I have been asked to show how I make a Texas Star, so I decided to share this with everyone. There are a few things you need to make before starting. First thing is to make a pattern making fence for your table saw. It is real simple. I usually make mine 4-6 inches wide out of 3/4”plywood. Rip a scrap piece o...

Hand tool revalations #3: curves and tenons

01-14-2012 07:08 PM by Andrew | 6 comments »

Well, the temperature in MN has turned to normal for this time of year, from the 40s to the teens, and working in my garage has slowed a bit. On top of that both my wife and a friend have asked for other projects, which of course, I am happy to put in line after this one. But it is cold in the garage (workshop) and metal planes rob heat from the hands faster than a politician with a sweet tooth grabbing a lollipop from a child! Progress must continue. So I will start work on the apron, I ...

Dart Board Cabinet #1: Every project is an opportunity to learn

01-13-2012 05:23 AM by Willeh | 2 comments »

The wife and I have recently gotten into playing darts as a hobby. We’ve been playing in our basement on an old dart board that I inherited from my dad housed in a ratty cabinet that looks aweful. Im currently in a lul for projects as it is now cold outside and my garage/workshop is unheated and uninsulated and its too cold to work in at this time of year most of the time as any project of size requires having the garage door open to wheel out the table saw to have enough room to wor...
