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

Mortise and Tenons on Curved Pieces

12-01-2013 04:25 PM by socrbent | 0 comments »

Maybe this blog can help some newbies. Experienced woodworkers and those with good training (not me) know that you should cut the mortises and tenons while the stock is still rectangular. Since I didn’t remember this until after cutting some parts for a toy baby cradle to their curved shape, I had to find solutions to problems encountered when cutting some mortises and tenons. The first problem surfaced as I was cutting the tenons on an upper rails for the head board and foot boards....

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...

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 Cabinet Build #4: 3 down 1 gluing plus a Bonus Handtool Tip of The Day...

09-17-2013 05:13 PM by Airframer | 8 comments »

Over the last couple of days before and after work I have had an assembly line of sorts going on in the shop for the glue up of the side, top and bottom panels of the cabinet case. I am up to 3 done and one more in clamps as we speak. As each one came out of the clamps and a new one went in I went about cleaning up and flattening the faces with a myriad of hand planes and my scraper. I purposely made each panel slightly oversized just in case I needed to rip a glue joint and re-joi...

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...

what i've been doing #11: Tool till jigs and glueup

05-06-2011 03:31 AM by Dave | 12 comments »

Well I have been able to steal some time in the shop and at least get a little done on my project. I thought I would show two of the jigs I have been using for the layout. Both of these jigs Chad Stanton had shown me how to make. The first one Is for the saw layout on the compound bevels. The second jig is produced by the first. You make a mockup of the pin board and then layout your dovetail angle on the inside. This jig is the key and gives you your setup on your bevel guage. Here is ...

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: ...

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....
