Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #9: Milling and final dimensioning!

02-16-2011 06:43 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

Well today is day 3, the halfway day again! It was a great day today, managed to fix the error I’d made last day by just swapping two pieces so I’m happy about that. I was concerned that my boards may have twisted between classes but the wood must be well and truly dry and acclimatized and I guess there was not too much stress in the boards so far so good. Managed to final dimension all of the pieces (about 12 of them) and just began figuring out the mortise and tenon joints o...

Fix and repaint table… Retro style

01-10-2012 01:03 PM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

Sisters table has broken legs. It is a shame really as it is pretty old table and still pretty good nick. After looking at it best we can do is glue and the try and brace the base a bit more. Now big sis wants to sand whole table back and redo just to spruce up. Now we all love wood, but her house has heaps of natural wood showing and with the table, it actually becomes to much so she is thinking of … eeeek painting it. (shock horror I know, but I actually on this occasion agree with her, ...

My First Workbench #5: Day 5: Slugging it out

08-17-2012 12:11 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Today was all about slugging it out. I ended up smashing my knuckles against the wall stud I’m using as a brace when I was thinking ahead to the glue-up and not paying attention to how far I was reaching with the plane…then, I promptly sliced another finger on the sharp corner (how did that happen?) of the plank I was working on. Just a flesh wound… So, got a little bloody today, but, well, these things won’t plane themselves… Great thing about today th...

Wedding Clock #10: Like Frankenstein, It Stands Up

07-05-2011 01:17 AM by kenn | 2 comments »

I am up to the nerve wracking part of this build. I need to put some dados into the sides of the clock, but since both the sides and front/back are angled, the dados need to be angled. I’ve been thinking about how to do this since I started this project. Use a stack dado set and the table saw? Yeah, that would work, but I don’t think the cut will be as precise as I need it to be and the cut would register on the front edge of one side and the back edge of the other side. That...

Miter-jointed display case WIP

09-14-2011 01:12 PM by TimmyP | 1 comment »

I’m re-building a glass display case for a model of the USS Constitution. The top of the case is being a bit of a challenge, but I think I’m on top of it. Currently, I’m working on trying to get the new top to fit together using miter joints. So after I cut my miters, and reading the forum postings about trying to get a better miter cut, I realized I have a store-bought device to help cut miters (of any angle) with a circular saw. The thing was bought probably over 10 ...

Craftsman built-ins #2: Window seat - stereo cabinet #2

11-26-2012 02:22 AM by mountainaxe | 0 comments »

Back in the shop this morning to start glue-ups. This was pretty simple as I had dry fit the day prior. I realized that the old saw is true…you can never have enough clamps—and I don’t. It was also somewhat difficult to put it all together by myself due to the size of the unit and the small space available in my shop. Used standard white wood glue and a few finish nails as insurance. Finally, I used wood putty to close up any small gaps and nail holes. Overall, I’...

Taiko Drums

11-10-2012 12:20 AM by TerryDowning | 1 comment »

I do a lot of volunteering for our local High School Marching Band. The theme of our 2012 show is “Samurai, The Way Of The Warrior” Last spring it was decided we really needed some traditional Japanese Taiko Drums to really make the effect. Taiko Drums typically cost thousands of dollars each. So, some of our parents started doing some research http://www.stanford.edu/group/stanfordtaiko/manual/index.html and we built them ourselves (only hundreds each now). Here is a ...

01-26-2013 04:09 PM by scamp238 | 0 comments »

I have been busy working and my daughter has ben busy with school, so we haven’t had much time to spend on this. We have made some progress though. A little each week. She has cut and shapeed the handles with the router. Finished all the doors. She sprayed the whole thing down with strong tea to add tannins to the pine. We used this ammonia. We sealed it in the shower with the ammoina overnight. We pulled it out and looked at it. I was pleased. ...

Medal Chest #11: The Lid, or, No Tablesaw, No Problem!

04-22-2013 01:08 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. Oh yeah, this post actually is the result of 6 days in the workshop—-some didn’t have pictures and I didn’t want to bore you with just text, so I put it all together under the title of The Lid. At last, w...
