Work In Progress #2: Canasta Part Two

11-20-2011 06:11 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

So unfortunately I had not taken many pictures during the process of hand planing the curved door as well as cutting the dovetails for the carcass. I wanted the door to be thin, very thin, which ultimately led to many, many problems. I ended up with a final thickness of a bout 1/4 inch. While I was milling the door I did not have the wood move on me much at all, the Avodire I ended up getting was so incredibly stable I could do almost anything to it and it would not warp. The one thing ...

Work In Progress #1: Canasta

11-20-2011 12:54 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

These images document some of the process of my most recent completed project which was a reliquary dedicated to my Mother. The requirement for this project was to design and make a Reliquary utilizing a door and a drawer. Our warm up project was to fit a drawer with half blind dovetails to a previously made carcass of MDF by our professor Rich Tannen. This was my first real go at dovetails. Some of the proportions were off as to what I wanted but I was pleased with the craftsmans...

Twins! #3: Wood selection

11-19-2011 01:45 AM by Andy123 | 3 comments »

Well… I haven’t made and entry in a while. I’ve made a cut list and compared prices in Eugene, Oregon. Emerson Hardwood/Crosscut had the best prices. I made a detailed list of what wood I needed, in common thicknesses and widths. All I needed was laid out down to the last detail. I had my list in hand and I drove the 1.5 hours to Eugene to get my lumber. When I got there, Emerson had the widths I needed, but not the lengths. Crap! I had to redo the lumber list all in my hea...

Veneered Sofa Table #5: Finishing the base

11-18-2011 05:43 AM by SPHinTampa | 0 comments »

Sorry for double post. The picture size was causing problems so I had to split the entry. In the last blog entry, I completed the feet for the sofa table and the joinery to connect them to the legs. In this entry, I will cut the remaining pieces for the base, complete the joinery and glue it up. It will look like this. First step is to create for table apron sides. Since the apron stock was only surfaced and jointed on one side, I rip the apron stock to final width. And cro...

Veneered Sofa Table #4: The foot bone is connected to the leg bone ...

11-18-2011 03:59 AM by SPHinTampa | 0 comments »

Last session, I built the compound legs using a lock miter. This session, I completed the legs and feet: Started with stock marked for the feet and the apron sides. This session, I created the feet to attach to the leg. This is done by routing a profile on three sides of a workpiece, cutting a miter and joining two work pieces at 90 deg. This is the end result. First I chuck up a cove/fillet profile bit: Then route the edges of the workpiece. Route the edge gra...

If all goes well and we get through a few snags with buying the house up north I should have a video ready in about 2 1/2 weeks of the new shop showing what I plan on doing to get it ready for my tools and equipment. I sure hope this goes OK, you never know when your dealing with buying a house from Fanny May they have some of the stupidest guidelines I ever saw. I ha...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #1: FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT!

11-12-2011 01:08 AM by StumpyNubs | 63 comments »

Maybe “LOVE” is a strong word. But I’m really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It’s been over a year in development, and And I’d like to think it is a pretty unique format! Here’s how it works… The show is designed to have the feel of a single camera “reality” type show. It is meant to be a glimpse into our workshop as if you were just stopping in...

Precise angles - What's the best way to cut them?

11-09-2011 10:00 PM by nobuckle | 11 comments »

I’m in the process of making this years Christmas gifts and one project in particular is turning out to be a real challenge. The goal is to create a mirror frame that consists of eight pieces with each piece having a 22.5 degree miter on both ends. For many this would be no problem, it’s just a simple cut on the ol’ power mitre saw. Not so for me. My power miter saw is anything but precise. “Why not use the TS?”, you might ask. I probably will, IF I can come up w...
