Walnut Platform Bed #2: Wings and disco lights ??

07-27-2012 10:13 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 12 comments »

The platform bed will have large, what I call wings, on the sides and foot. I glued a section of walnut on the side wings up near the head. These will serve as as sort of side tables. the wings are 5/4 in thickness and have recessed trays in them. I chose an ogee edge for them and routed the outer edges of the ‘wings’ .Using a tray or bowl cutting bit the depression was routed using both a bearing template of mdf and a simple sled to clean out the inside of it. I love routi...

Walnut Platform Bed #1: The wood and initial assembly

07-27-2012 09:39 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 8 comments »

I’ve built a bed for my oldest daughter and one for the wife and I. My youngest, finally on her own after college with a job and an apartment requested a bed too. My first was a raised panel oak bed. Ours is a maple platform with storage beneath it. This one will be very different. A floating platform bed. She requested Walnut and curly cherry. I went to look over the wood at Highland Woods in NH and decided that the curly cherry had very little contrast to the walnut so I chose to u...

Woodworking Contest - Whirligig Wars Winners

07-26-2012 08:41 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 8 comments »

All in all it was a great event with a lot of great entries. I would like to thank all those who participated in the 1st Annual Whirligig Wars Contest. When I presented the idea of holding a whirligig contest to Steve Ramsey (Woodworking For Mere Mortals) he and I agreed it would be a fun summer event. The response was overwhelming with over 6000 video views of the videos relating to the contest and many great comments from woodworkers all over. So it was decided early on that this would be ...

Exercises in Artisanship #22: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 5

Sawdust, shavings, and a lot of water in these heat wave shop exercises has brought me to my newest updates on this Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table. This project has been a lot of fun and also filled with challenges along the way…..the biggest is the heat we have been enduring these past weeks….YIIIKES 100 degrees??......bring back the fall!....lol. So when I have been able to sneak out and get some more decent temperatures to work with I set about my task at adding side piece...

My Own Road to Damascus #2: My first hand cut dovetail!

07-19-2012 07:33 PM by Kookaburra | 20 comments »

Thanks to George_SA for the link to the 5 minute dovetail exercise. I am going to try to do one each time I get some time in the shop. Unfotunately, work has me on the road a lot these day, so I will have to be patient. What would happen if I brought a couple of saws and chisels along with some chunks of wood when I checked in at the airport? Maybe I am better off catching up on my LJ reading! Back to the topic at hand. I used a short piece of oak to do my first. I like working with ...

07-19-2012 04:13 AM by sawblade1 | 4 comments »

Good evening LJ’s, As I begin this series on shop organization I must give you a little background for my reason and inspiration first off my reason. My shop is small 12’x16’ total of 190 sq. ft. I have acquired more tools, and machines so space has shrunk and my original layout is not working anymore. What to do? what to do? One of my options is to build onto my shop expensive and not really feasible. Another would be to build a new one Nice but no on that. So with thes...

Door disguise #1: Cover the door but don't make it look like I covered it.

07-13-2012 05:38 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 9 comments »

My dining room has been used as a dining 5 times in the last 18 years. A few years back, my wife took it over as her little room. I’m good with that. The piano is in there along with an entertainment center and seating. I am almost 100% done with that room but something will always bug me. The doorway to the kitchen. It’s right behind the couch. I don’t want to see that doorway. I tried to fill it in (would have been pretty dang easy) but my wife said, “You never know ...
