Getting started.

04-20-2010 04:53 AM by Builder_Bob | 3 comments »

I recently finished building a federal style card table loosely patterned after the plan in FWW issue #59, “Federal Card Table” by Michael Dunbar. That table in turn is based on a piece from the period, thought to be from Baltimore. I still consider myself a newbie, and was shocked at how well the finished table came out! Now I’m going to make a second table with a few improvements. If you’d like to follow along I can promise you that we will take an interesting and unconve...

Wood Gloat #14: What to do with a slab of White Cedar?

11-04-2010 07:45 AM by degoose | 13 comments »

My good mate and fellow woodworker, Col, lobbed over yesterday with a small slab of White Cedar… He wanted me to break it down and dress it up…2/3 for him and I keep 1/3… good deal… The slab was just over 2 metres [6 feet] long and 50 mm [2 inches] thick and just wide enough to fit in my thickenesser.. ie 380 mm [or 15 inches] wide.. It was a good thing that the slab was both flat and straight… otherwise I would have had to take it over to the TWC to fla...

The old time woodshop journals #44: Back to the bench!

05-09-2013 08:59 PM by jjw5858 | 3 comments »

Since taking such an extended time learning many aspects of carving spoons from green timber, I began to miss the other parts of working wood. I missed the use of my old Stanleys, Disstons, and Millers Falls! Yeah….I am a hand tool galoot for sure….GALOOTS UNITE!...LOL. Of course while just starting to excel at carving, understanding the grips and sculpture of spoon making, it was easy to have a worry that my other skills were getting some rust as much as the tools began too!.....

Cherry Curved-Front Desk #1: Design Down, Getting Legs Right

09-01-2014 05:24 PM by CharlesA | 5 comments »

This is my second project progress blog. I am a hobbyist who likes to try to build things beyond my skill set. I started this desk in the spring, then got waylaid by the live edge table I needed to finish. Today I started again. I am making a Curved-Front Desk from the Fine Woodworking plan. The first step is to do the legs. I got ahead of myself in the spring and did the shaping of the legs before I did the mortises. By the end of the week, I will have 8-10 double-curved cherry leg...

Batch process in progress #1: Shaker Styled Cherry End Tables

04-11-2008 08:39 PM by Kipster | 5 comments »

I started these tables a while ago, while I was recovering from surgery. Most of the time spent so far has been turning the legs. I made the proto- type last year and posted in my projects. The task at hand is dry fitting the mortise and tenon joints all 36 of them. This is going slow but I have one table near completion. I am telling myself to continue the dry fit for the other two tables and wait and glue them when I finish dry fitting the other two tables. I would be interest...

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

09-27-2009 06:08 PM by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

Bookshelves #1: raw materials

03-03-2010 08:29 PM 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.

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #4: More gluing

03-03-2015 02:58 AM by ic3ss | 3 comments »

Since I began woodworking almost five years ago and slowly building my shop, one of the things that has proven difficult for me to prioritize was buying clamps. We all know the old saying “You can’t have enough clamps”. And while this is true, the projects that I have mostly done didn’t require very many clamps. And the larger projects I did, I just made do with what I had. This bench project has spurred me to start buying parallel clamps, but at $40 + a pop and with s...
