Small Bathroom Shelf w/ Reclaimed wood

02-15-2012 03:54 PM by Brian024 | 1 comment »

Recently built this small bathroom storage shelf. The wood was some laminated pine boards that were used for a bookcase that fell apart, the person gave me the boards for free and I used them for this shelf. Very simple construction that relied on screws because I did not have the time to use traditional joinery. The finish was Minwax Helsmans satin. The dimensions were 36” tall, 15” wide and 7” deep.

Roubo Hybrid Bench from start to finish #2: What I got from what I had

05-16-2012 01:43 PM by Jamie Speirs | 5 comments »

Well the thing I love about wood especially an orphan piece like this one Is that it can only get better, I hope :) It looks huge and if it were not for the flaws It would make a big bench Ok, it aint going to be a 6’ bench If I could only use the full piece I like the idea of one side being rustic The rot on the right hand corner means that I’m going to have to get a much narrower tha the 18” that I hoped for Well I did not s...

Cherry Box of squares #5: Lid work

11-17-2016 10:43 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, just to get caught up a bit. Sized the lid’s frame parts for length, and started to dovetail the corners.. Four pieces, all nice and smoothed up, and then checked to make sure they would fit the box.. Then start with the dovetails. While normally I start with the pins…for some reason I wound up doing the tails first.. Not the best looking ones, pins looked better.. Hardest part for me is to remember which side of the lines to saw on.. Otherwise, I get loos...

Workbench #3: Base

03-12-2014 07:30 PM by john2005 | 8 comments »

Been awhile since I updated this. Hard to find time with a 2yr old and another on the way. Always trying to balance the time. Then of course the holidays came where all I did was make Christmas gifts. I had hoped to have this all wrapped up by the first of the year and here it is march and I’m not done. Close though. So the guy I got the birch from had already made 2 legs. They were 4” square and about 40” long. I was wanting to go with 5” legs but sinc...

The Tone Project

12-28-2009 07:19 PM by JimDaddyO | 6 comments »

As a new member here, I figured that I should share the project I am working on. I am by no means a luthier, or a highly skilled woodworker (yet). This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. It started by felling an ash tree a few years ago and getting it milled into boards. Here I am in my large workshop planing the boards to thickness. Note the fancy chip/dust collector. Did my first bookmatch ever! Made a core from maple. glueing the back to the ...

Prayer Kneeler #1: Starting to take shape

03-20-2012 05:17 PM by Trabiman | 2 comments »

A friend of mine, who took a day from work and drove 6hrs round trip, ran a new 100 AMP panel from the house to my woodshop. When I tried to give him money, he refused and asked only that I make him something. I said sure thing… He asked me to build a prayer kneeler for his house. He only had one requirement, which was that it be made out of scrap that I had on hand in the shop. After looking at many sites and other postings of those who make kneelers I have finally have a start.

A Plane Bench #1: Starting of a plane bench

06-12-2013 08:59 PM by rhett | 0 comments »

Well, I am happy to say I have been making a lot of planes lately, but in doing so, I have found my current bench to be lacking. The obvious answer is to build a bench, and who doesn’t want to build something in the shop. I have been using a large granite plate for sharpening and fettling and I have a bunch of ash, so I’ve decided to combine the two. The design is like most “shop” fixtures I make, design on the fly. By keeping an old camera in the shop, I am able t...

Architrave molding

08-21-2013 09:35 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

I’ve been remodeling the house and thought I’d just post a few pictures of how I make my architrave moldings. I don’t know how they are really made. This is just a solution I came up with with the bits I had in the drawer. It starts off with four parts that I sandwich together. The top two parts are made with a simple ogee bit, the cove is made with a raised panel bit, and the bottom part is just a thin strip of wood. Along with that I made some fluted molding for the sides....

CA Glue - Did I not take Chemistry?

06-16-2011 08:22 PM by Transition | 4 comments »

I also posted this in the Safety forum: •I often use my bare fingers around CA and will get it on my hands. This usually isn’t a big deal, however I recently let a good deal of it build up rapidly, and got a nice little burn. The burn was small, but the heat generated by the curing CA glue was very significant and extremely painful. I believe the heat caused the burn, and not a chemical reaction with my skin. The MSDS for CA glue also warns against using cotton gloves, as apparently CA wil...
