Briefcase #2: Cutting, sanding, finishing and glueing

08-04-2009 09:38 PM 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...

Dovetails #2: Another (Improved) Hacksaw Attempt

04-01-2012 02:08 AM by stroml | 2 comments »

Just thought I’d give y’all an update since my first disaster. I chose to forgo the dull chisel this time and just went with the hacksaw, vise, and pencil. This time was much better as far as fit, but still pretty fugly. I’d give it a 4.5/10 as opposed to a 1/10 I would have given my last adventure. Here are some action shots. Cutting new tails (notice the first ones I did on the opposite end). Now the pins with my new and improved #2 marking device. Why didn’...

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...

Balanced Work Bench #2: building the leg vise

07-18-2013 03:38 AM by Jeremiah | 0 comments »

i have never made a leg vise before and i have no idea what to expect with the one i made. The basic concept came from Shop Notes. And i like the basic concept. However, i do NOT like the price of ACME Rod, ACME nuts or ACME ANYTHING. so i went with “off the shelf” 3/4” threaded rod from LOWES. I dont know if this will bite me in the butt or not. But just in case, i built the vice so i could change it out if i need to use a better threaded rod. The dimensions ...

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...

Fix and repaint table… Retro style

01-10-2012 01:03 PM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

Sisters table has broken legs. It is a shame really as it is pretty old table and still pretty good nick. After looking at it best we can do is glue and the try and brace the base a bit more. Now big sis wants to sand whole table back and redo just to spruce up. Now we all love wood, but her house has heaps of natural wood showing and with the table, it actually becomes to much so she is thinking of … eeeek painting it. (shock horror I know, but I actually on this occasion agree with her, ...

Refreshing basic skills #1: Remembering how to cut dovetails

04-01-2011 05:56 AM by David Kirtley | 5 comments »

I have been reading other people’s posts on hand cut dovetails and I thought about it and realized that I have not actually hand cut a dovetail in a long time. For those that don’t know, I have been getting myself set up again for woodworking and it has been nearly 20 years since I had a workshop. Most of my time and effort has been getting tooled up again and I can say now that I have what I want to work with. The last phase of acquisition was getting saws. To start with, I g...

Roubo from a weed, or how I have come to hate red oak

01-20-2011 05:20 PM by Jon Spelbring | 3 comments »

Like many jocks out there, I’m in the process of building a new workbench. It will be pretty close to the Roubo that Chris Schwarz built, but sadly, my top will not be made out of pretty (if punky) cherry. No, I was fortunate(?) to have a supply of very thick red oak planks to work with. The top is made up of 3 pieces at 7.5” wide by 4” thick by 7’ long. It’s a beast! The legs are from the same stock, trimmed to 3”x5”. I’ve finished cutt...
