Kitchen Remodel #8: My first try at Corian

2090 days ago by Karson | 24 comments »

Well this was my first try at assembling a Corian top for the base cabinets. I didn’t take any pictures of the actual gluing because I wasn’t sure of the amount of time I’d have as i was doing that process. Now that I have a better feel for the amount of time it takes, I’ll take some assembly pictures for the rest of the counter top. I started with the corner cabinet that is 24” X 24” and is where we currently have a microwave and toaster. New cabi...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #11: Homemade Biscuits and the ULTIMATE tool cabinet!!!!

893 days ago by StumpyNubs | 39 comments »

In this episode we unveil our shop-made bench top biscuit joining machine designed for fast, accurate glue-ups… and we begin the “Ultimate Tool Cabinet Build”. Plus, Stumpy gives you a list of things to do with your Sundays now that football season is over… Here’s some screen shots of the sketchup drawing for the machine. The most difficult part about the build was the mount for the joiner. It took a lot of work to get the design just right. If it’s no...

Raised Garden Fencing #5: Finally - Done & Installed

1484 days ago by BlankMan | 9 comments »

Wow. I can’t believe I started this project a month ago almost to the day and this took me a month. Granted I got sidetracked with a few other projects along the way but still. It was kind of the kind of project I don’t really like. Repetitive. I like making one, or maybe two of something, to make twelve of something got a bit boring at times. Too much like an assembly line. Doing the first of each operation on the first one then the second was fun, on the twelfth, not so fun. But...

Working a Slab by Hand

1547 days ago by davemoorefurniture | 29 comments »

If you have ever had material that is too large for your machines, fear not. In this video I demonstrate how I use a set of planes to achieve a time honored technique by flattening, thicknessing, and joining a live-edge, cherry table top. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to give me feedback so that I may improve in both my woodworking and video abilities.

Construction Steps for Kevin Rodel Arts and Craft Chairs #1: Crest Rail Construction

446 days ago by kbiniowa | 2 comments »

Quartersawn oak blanks are cut to 14” long and 1 5/8” thick. The upper crest rails are 3” wide and the lower rails are 2 ½” wide. I chose to construct the chair with floating tenons so that I could mill and cut all of the rails to the exact same length. A bench-top mortising machine is used to make the mortises for the upper and lower crest rails. The 3/8” chisel is set exactly parallel to the machine’s fence, then an auxiliary fence is installed and shimmed to the proper angle required. Sto...

Roy's Mystery Mallet #3: Dressed and Ready for Work

862 days ago by pastorglen | 5 comments »

As promised, here’s the final outcome of Roy Underhill’s Mystery Mallet. As you can see, I shaped the handle a little differently than they showed in the magazine. I like the squared-off handle better. I also stained the head one color and then applied several coats of tung oil to the whole thing. Thanks, again, to venues like LJ, Roy Underhill, and the folks over at Popular Woodworking. My woodworking is better because of you all.

Intarsia Basics #4: Part 4 Coming Soon (Sorry)!!!!

811 days ago by KoryK | 9 comments »

I just wanted to update on the status of the class and inform every one of the delay. For those of you that do not know, I had a misfortunate (stupid?) accident and broke a bone in my right hand a couple of weeks ago. I was hoping that I had progressed far enough beforehand that it would not affect the class. Unfortunately the bones are not healing correctly and it is taking longer for ir it to heal. I tried again tonight, but do not have enough dexterity or hand strength to sand while I...

Solid Wood Door glue-ups / Tips and Techniques

1623 days ago by KnotWright | 6 comments »

One of the best things about Lumberjocks is that an individual can be exposed to so many different ways to do the same task. While you are working in your shop, you aren’t really exposed to too many different ways, normally the way you were taught, or how you figured it out, tends to be the way we always end up doing things. This way might not be the most efficient or productive, but it does get the job done. My question for everyone is how do you do the following task: I”...

Making a Violin #3: Sides, or 'Ribs' ~ Bending & Gluing

1349 days ago by RonPeters | 7 comments »

Ok, I’m back… Had a bit of an issue with the bending iron. It seems it is rather delicate and putting it on high (10) is a no no. It’s a Watlow ‘Firerod’ embedded in the aluminum tower. The current flow at 10 apparently burns out the element? It requires about an hour to get to bending temperature – and had I read the sheet that it came with… It was repaired free of charge and henceforth I will be careful to mind the dial! Nothing past 5 from no...
