Maloof Low Back Chairs #1: Rough up

01-18-2014 02:02 AM by Dave G | 2 comments »

The hard maple table displayed in my projects needs chairs. We have a small house and a small dining room. The chairs must slide mostly under the table out of the way. Another LJ displayed his low back chair and the idea was born! I bought Charles Brocks plans and video. I chose hard maple to match the table. Sure it’s hard. But once you’re grinding with carbide tools and sanding to sculpt it doesn’t matter much. I’m keeping track of my hours because I...

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

A chance to revisit a previous project

02-02-2014 05:34 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

So far, in my woodworking “career”, I’ve made 4 benches. It’s a simple design that I came up with that uses yellow pine 2×4s for all the pieces. The 1st bench I put together was … bulky. The final design, which I’m very happy with, I think of as the Mk III; doubled 2×4s for the legs with a shoulder for the bench to rest on, 1/2” slats suppored by braces in the middle, all held together with Miller dowels. The Mk I was all single pieces...

Mission Style Pedestal Table #4: Completing the top, putting it all together

05-20-2013 01:19 AM by Douglas | 6 comments »

I made a lot of progress this past week. After getting the top together and cut to shape, I fitted it onto the sliders, and attached the tabletop levelers, to see how that would work, and to take a look at it all with the leaf pieces in place… success! The table sliders worked smoothly, and the top looks great all together. I then spent some quality time with the smoothing plane, raking light, and card scraper to get the top in final shape… some tearou...

CA Glue - Did I not take Chemistry?

06-16-2011 08:22 PM by Transition | 4 comments »

I also posted this in the Safety forum: •I often use my bare fingers around CA and will get it on my hands. This usually isn’t a big deal, however I recently let a good deal of it build up rapidly, and got a nice little burn. The burn was small, but the heat generated by the curing CA glue was very significant and extremely painful. I believe the heat caused the burn, and not a chemical reaction with my skin. The MSDS for CA glue also warns against using cotton gloves, as apparently CA wil...

mitre jig

01-21-2014 10:05 PM by dclark1943 | 15 comments »

Recently Big Al, i.e. “Boxguy” posted a jig he had built for cutting accurate mitre joints. I built one this afternoon, and thought I would share my attempt at making the same jig. Total cost for the jig was around $17.00 – - the all in one clamp. The time was 2 1/2 hours. MDF remnants, left over material from other projects, and junk drawer parts finished it to this point. Still have to finish up the stop system, but was anxious to use it today, so will add the stop tom...

Walnut kitchen countertop #3: Glue-up almost finished

01-28-2014 02:47 PM by harum | 4 comments »

The two panels were glued board by board, which made alignment easier, especially for the 37” right side. The overall size is 80” x 27”. After the very last gluing today, I will trim the boards for them to fit the space around the oven range and start hand planing and sanding with an ROS. The glue lines are mostly flush, but not perfectly flush all the way along the length, so some flattening has to be done. The sanding-after-jointing idea kind of worked: if I w...

Walnut kitchen countertop #1: cutting and gluing

01-16-2014 08:14 PM by harum | 0 comments »

This countertop around oven range will be made of two separate pieces which connect through a “bridge” with one seam behind the range. The right part is about 13” x 24”, the left—37” x 24”. The bridge is of two parts, each is 40” x 3” and to be glued to either left or right side to allow one seam connection. Cut the 1-13/16” walnut boards into segments: The left side glue-up: Two boards of the right side glue-up: ...
