Spalted Maple Sofa Table #2: Milling and Gluing

09-16-2011 06:00 PM by superstretch | 1 comment »

TopThe spalted maple I had was about 5/4 rough. I would have loved to shave off a nice 3/8” or so to get them down to 3/4”, but my band saw was no where near up for the task. Off to the planer we go (after being ripped to width and jointed). LegsSince the boards I had were about 5/4, I couldn’t make the legs the desired 1.5” thick without gluing some together. Since the spalting and grain patterns were so varied, gluing two pieces together looked pretty gross....

Tool chest update #5: 1 of 3 almost complete

07-19-2013 01:55 AM by Dan Krager | 13 comments »

The first of three chests is almost complete. I can’t afford to put doors on it yet, so I plan to use it as is. There are five more planes to house, and trunk corners to put on (still looking for them…they’re a little special because the three corner ones don’t work on an open front). I’ve settled on magnets to secure the planes below, the upper ones need more, so cleats look promising.Thanks for your interest.DanK

Biscuits by Home Depot, they worked for me.

05-18-2013 01:57 PM by Oldtool | 2 comments »

I’m in the middle of an oak trestle table build for my son & DIL, and currently just finished gluing up the top. The top is made from three 17” wide boards, purchased at a local saw mill, and the owner was gracious enough to provide S2S for me on this purchase, as I mentioned to him that my planer is limited to 13”. Even though the top boards are surfaced to 3/4”, I know I’ll need to plane & scrape after glue up to remove all machining marks, so I want...

Wedding Clock #5: Don't Get Mad at Me, The Back

05-18-2011 03:35 AM by kenn | 5 comments »

As a reminder, I am making an Art and Craft style clock based on one at The Grove Park Inn for my eldest daughter’s upcoming wedding. See post #2 for the goal. I’ve decided to make the back frame and panel assembly first. A little sharpening is order before I get started. Next I planed the stiles flat and square with my Lie-Nielsen #7. Then I just couldn’t handle the suspense anymore and had to lay out the panels and rails to see how it was going to look. This allowed ...

My daughter has been making some progress on the pie safe. She has gotten it almost to where you can tell what it is going to be. She has finished punching one of the panels and is working on another. I have a question, are there anyShe has finished punching one of the panels and is working on another.
