Dining Room Table...BY Suppertime?

07-07-2013 01:21 AM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

Yup. had a pair of legs already tapered on two sides. Got the other two legs done by noonish. Tapered with handplanes only, mind you. Set up a “work space” such as i have. A washer & dryer served as a staging area And laid out a few toys, er tools. That little piece of paper? THAT is all the “plans” I had, just the measurements for the aprons. Made tenons on one of the short aprons ( 24-1/2” long 1×4) so I would have a pattern...

Stool #2: Update

03-02-2008 07:48 PM by Woodshopfreak | 1 comment »

I have continued on my stool project. I have improvised, and tweaked, to make this a stool that is usable. I am currently set on the idea of a pocket screw, with gule to attach the legs to the top, I know that a mortis and tenon would be the best possible thing, but that would require a compound angled motise with no edge to guide a router, I belive that the screws along with glue should hold the legs in place, but does anyone have any other ideas??? today I am hopefully going to finish up th...

Patio / Deck Bench #2: Frame just about complete

05-31-2010 02:43 AM by Blinky | 2 comments »

It was so much fun gluing the frame of the bench together (!#$%^&* *&^%$#) = need more clamps , I forgot to take pictures.I like how it’s shaping up though.This is after glue-up, before finish:To glue up, I wiped all mating surfaces (including the dowel holes), with acetone. I used TiteBond III; hope it goes well.To finish, I sanded down to 220 grit, wiped clean. I then wiped with acetone, and applied Penofin. I had to take it outside to see how it looks in its future ‘...

Sketchup Tutorials #1: Through Dovetails

06-13-2010 08:51 AM by David Kirtley | 7 comments »

Just a quick tutorial on how to draw through dovetails in Sketchup. In this one, I would not even want to try pins first. Tails first all the way in Sketchup. This is the first time I used Photobucket and the images are a bit odd sized to match the forum. I will fix them as I get stuff figured out. Ok, you want to make a piece the length and width of your stock: Take the end where you want to make the dovetails and right click to get the menu and select divide. You will want to m...

Chair for the study desk unit for my son #1: finally started the last project

05-02-2009 04:06 AM by Junji | 5 comments »

So this will be the last project of “study desk unit for my son”. I have been thinking about this ever since I started this while project, but the other day somebody here is LJ introduced me the projects of Nakashima, so I decided to go with that taste. (thank you Todd and one.hit.wonder) So here is the plan, kind of easy one as always. From woodworking I am not sure about the extra support legs, I know it will be much cooler without them, but I have to make it strong, s...

Firewood Plane #2: Not so alternative plane blanks

10-31-2011 06:13 AM by tr33surg3on | 0 comments »

I decided to abandon the firewood plane blank after I realized it was lodgepole pine. I’m playing it safe by using a Maple turning blank. It was about 2×2x20. I cut it down to two 10” segments and glued them together to make a 2×4x10 blank. It will be a little wider than necessary, but I’ll have plenty of room for error when I rip the sides. It also turned out the blade on my thrift-store #5 is more pitted than I had hoped. I sharpened it as best I cou...

Hand Tool Journey #15: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 3

05-10-2013 09:52 PM by Airframer | 8 comments »

I’m pretty excited right now. I just finished attaching the legs to the hinge and so far nothing has fallen apart! From what I can tell the hardest part is behind me and now it is just a matter of shaping and fitting the adjuster arc to the legs. I also got the fine tuning nut built up and tapped. I still need to make an adjusting screw for the arc but that won’t take very long. Today at the OB appointment we were told that we will be induced on the 20th so only a week ...
