"REVERIE HARP!" a new style of Harp from a kit #1: Reverie Harp Kit, Off to a pretty good start!

06-18-2009 08:49 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 27 comments »

I showed Barb this kit the other day, & immediately she said, ”I want one.” When the Sweetie wants something, I usually comply to her wishes. Besides, I can try making something I’ve never done before. This is the kit I ordered, it's called a Reverie Harp.. One thing about this Harp is, anyone can play it because of the way it’s tuned. It has a real soothing sound.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is a picture of the parts ...

Cherry File Cabinet #3: Box Joints (or how not to make a plywood box)

12-30-2014 12:22 AM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

Ok, so the carcass (correct term?) of the file cabinet is all glued up and came out really nice. I have a few touch ups with a sanding block to do. I set off this morning in search of decent 1/2” plywood to make the two drawers. I ended up driving 1/2 an hour into town to Rockler to pickup a sheet of 1/2” Baltic Birch and some 1/4” for the bottoms, along with some satin Arm R Seal. Made a side trip on the way home to Lowes to spend the gift cards that were burning a ho...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #6: Turned Legs and Base Joinery

02-01-2015 05:50 AM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

I start out with some 12/4 walnut, and cut 4 legs, making sure I use rift sawn lumber. Using a turning that I made for a template, I turn all 4 legs. Then I start on the joinery. This is traditional mortise and tenon joinery throughout, and I show an easy way to get nice tight fitting tenons. The front bottom rail uses a double tenon while the top uses a dovetail to hold everything together. The most unusual thing in this video is that there a shot where you can almost see me smile! Almost…. ...

What is "Fine Furniture"?

02-06-2018 03:53 PM by Matt887 | 16 comments »

I want to start this endeavor as I have others in my life; with an idea of where I want to go, then let the journey fill in along the way. So where I want to go is this, I want to end up being able to build furniture, fine furniture at that. After asking some questions to folks in the field they ask what I thought fine furniture was. For me the question was answered more by what I have seen in print than in person and became difficult to put into words. Therefore I have come up with a few ski...

Hand Tools #1: Watching Paint Dry

06-30-2007 09:53 PM by woodspar | 9 comments »

While I was watching the top coat paint dry on my shutters, (the acrylic based topcoat dries a good deal faster than the oil based primer!) I got this crazy idea in my head to start working with hand tools. So I got out my planes and chisels and my pull saw and started hacking away at some pine I had laying around the shop. At one point, (it must have been the caffiene in the coffee ice cream,) I dug up my copy of “Joinery Basics” by Sam Allen, and read his in...

What to do with a Walnut slab.. #1: Late night, cutting and a-fittin...

11-24-2015 07:47 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Note to self….IF one closes the shop for the night…..do NOT go back out there. tried to pull an all-nighter….not. Anyway, laid out some curves and ran the bandsaws….tried the Texas bandsaw, still can’t follow a line…Bandsaw #2 seemed to at least try. Starting to get a few more toys down in the shop.. Drawknives, a spokeshave, couple low angle block planes…..Needed the spokeshave to remove the saw marks on the curves… Got both lower ...

What to do with a Walnut slab.. #3: Last of the saw work, start of the cussing

11-27-2015 10:42 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, Landlord WAS coming over to finish the painting upstars…..fell asleep. he will TRY to get over here in the morning….he says. Wandered down to the shop, to see what sort of trouble I could get into…. Had three parts to make tenons on….two had curved sides. Might be a bit tricky to clamp in the end vise? I picked out a scrap of walnut from when I sawed the curved parts. Had to trim the ends back a bit.. So I could clear the “work area”...
