Skills Building #2: Clock Project - Mortise & Tenons galore

04-19-2010 08:59 PM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 3 comments »

They say that there’s nothing like practise to make you better at a skill. My cousin’s wedding is in June, and I decided in my new wood working glory to make a wedding present for them. After consulting my wife, we decided that building a clock would be a nice gift. So I spent some time searching the project archive here on LJ’s, and around the web. Saving pictures to the hard drive so that I could go back and forth to choose without having to bookmark the various pages t...

Custom Knife Blocks #3: Lots of glue-ups

11-06-2011 05:31 PM by wdkits1 | 1 comment »

One of the biggest challenges of making 25 of anything is being consistent with all of the measurements and finding ways to do glue-ups efficiently. The sides of the blocks all have to be the same size on the top dimension so when the fronts are attached everything matches up. I found out that while doing the jointing on the angled pieces of the sides, the tips of the pieces would bow slightly which meant that a little work was necessary to get all 5 pieces to fit properly. A few pas...

Tool Chest #2: Starting The Lid

12-04-2011 04:06 AM by JaLatham | 4 comments »

Ripping stock to size. I really don’t know why I was staying so far from the line. Not that it matters. Apparently my sawing has been getting better. I stayed away from the line to allow for wandering of the saw blade, but it tracked so straight that I think I can stick right next to the line next time. Jointing sawn edges. While I know that the shavings aren’t what is important, seeing the difference in the shavings of my jointer plane(on top), and my fore plane(on ...

Tool Box #2: lid building

08-17-2014 01:47 AM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

and panel raisin’ Got the Pine panel out of the clamps. Hand planed to as flat as I could get in. Time to raise a panel. Same way as the side panels. Mark out a “stop line” about 1” in from the edge. Take a #4 sized handplane, set it a bit deep. Go at a diagonal to the grain. Plane until you reach the stop line, check the remainder of the edge for straightness. As you get close to the finish line, back off the depth of cut. I do the end grain ...

Lamps for the living room #2: Coming together

04-08-2013 01:42 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

It has been a bit of a bother to find time for woodworking. I found some today and managed to put in a few hours. Today was about fitting the sides of the lamps to the side edges. Although I got all the I made progress on both lamps but I only got one assembled up to this point. I am going very slow on this so I can enjoy what I’m making. For starters, I added one coat of tung oil before starting the glue up. The glue joints don’t have any tung oil on them so thery are good...

American Hanging Cupboard #3: Cutting the tenons - What NOT to do...

10-30-2009 06:25 PM by Mark D. | 3 comments »

So last night I began cutting the tenons on the table saw. Now before everyone tells me I’m lucky to still have my fingers or flames me for posting these pics, here’s a disclaimer. DO NOT use a table saw without the use of a throat plate. Disastrous things CAN and likely WILL happen… (See Also: Standard disclaimer “Blade Guard Removed for Clarity”) That being said… I’ve never had problems making cuts with the dado stack in the tablesaw without ...

Step-back Cupboard Build #1: Lumber prep

06-09-2009 06:04 AM 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...
