Step-back Cupboard Build #1: Lumber prep

1905 days ago by rwyoung | 0 comments »

I decided I need a nice place to keep some china what-not that has started to accumulate around here. My parents keep dropping off stuff that they have stored at their house, now it is getting stored in mine… After much looking around and cogitation on the matter, I decided the first thing to make would be a cupboard, specifically a step-back cupboard. These are open on the top, and a closed cupboard on the bottom. Sometimes two pieces, other times one. Later I’ll look into...

Incra Router Table #3: Finishing it up

335 days ago by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

I finished up the project in this session. Since it sticks out, I will comment on my non standard design – i.e. drawers in the back. I originally did this as an attempt to fix an issue in my shop lay out – stupid move. Fortunately, the flaw is not as annoying as I was worried since the INCRA Router Top has you standing at the side (facing the fence) vs standing at the long edge. So I started here And ended here Steps I followed in today’s session1. Dust Collec...

Briefcase #2: Cutting, sanding, finishing and glueing

1849 days ago by Chris Wright | 2 comments »

So, now I’ve got the bulk of the work done on the case. Where I left off in my last blog I had cut the sides and glued the top together. Now, I got the top down to the right size. This was a little tricky because I wanted to keep the joint pretty much right in the middle of the panel. Once it was to size it was time to route a cove along the edges so I could fit them into the slots I cut into the sides. I used a cove cutting bit that I filed the guide bearing post off of so I wil...

My Joinery Journey #1: Lumberjock Style Care Package

257 days ago by CFrye | 17 comments »

These beautiful saws arrived in the mail a few days ago, a Lumberjock care package from TerryR. Terry was the recipient (poor guy) of the plane I made for the 2013 Hand Plane Swap. He found out I didn’t have any (real) hand saws and determined to rectify said deficiency. I was speechless when I saw them (pun not intended). Between work and a fall on the ice I wasn’t able to try them out until today. With my husband instructing and offering needed advice, I cut my first blind m...

My First Workbench #10: Day 10: Glue up finished, starting on joinery

736 days ago by RaggedKerf | 4 comments »

If you want to see the version with all the pictures, please click here. I got up with the sun today to get a head start on bench before the munchkins got up. First order of business was to unclamp the 2nd half that I glued up last night. Then, after a quick run with the plane to smooth out the mating faces, I glued up the two halves. It’s now one massive slab of wood where a little over a week ago, it was just a collection of 16 2×4s. This thing is gratifyingly heavy as well. ...

Allyson's Nightstand #1: Introduction

1927 days ago by Thomas Keefe | 3 comments »

My five year old daughter Allyson was complaining one night that she had no place to set things when she went to bed. As I was getting ready to begin a woodworking class I offered to build her a nightstand. She enthusiastically accepted. I showed her some pictures of different types of nightstands that I thought I might be able to build. Immediately, she began giving me requirements including that it had to have two drawers and a shelf on the bottom. I have been working on it now for a little...

Cherry Nightstand #9: Final Assembly

79 days ago by Todd | 3 comments »

The final assembly consisted of remounting the drawer slides, attaching the drawer front, attaching the top assembly, and installing back panel. In a previous installment of this blog I had installed the drawer slides. I removed them to complete the staining and finishing. After reinstalling the hardware I began the process of mounting the drawer fronts. The drawers are standard 1/2” overlay. The top and botton rails of the face frame are 1” wide and the middle rail...

Squaring the edge of cheap lumber with 2 tools in 30 seconds

44 days ago by jordanp | 4 comments »

I kind of stumbled on this method by accident.I haven’t tested it on hardwood but your big box soft wood lumber works perfectly.. Tools needed. Stanley No. 95 or equivalent (veritas or LN)Block plane or smoothing plane set for thin shavings. I usually take 8-12 passes with the 95 each direction,This is usually enough to get rid of that rounded edge you getWith big box store construction grade lumber. But wait! I just changed directions against the grain!Doesn’t matter...

Exercises in Artisanship #23: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 6 THE FINAL

743 days ago by jjw5858 | 4 comments »

This table is special I suppose because it is my first. My shop being set in all natural conditions sure made this a spread out project, there were some truly brutal hot and humid days that let this sit and wait for a better time to work with it. I wanted a piece that had touches of rustic warmth supported with lines of a Renaissance rhythm. To stand back and see the entire composition in it’s thought out form, from some ragged sketches to this on my living room floor is a nice reward for ...
