Simple, Useful, Free

09-03-2012 04:59 AM by TDog | 4 comments »

No I’m not marketing. I’m just amazed at how it’s not the fancy pieces or most expensive pieces that tend to get the most use. I think by far many expensive and or “fancy” if I may, pieces of furniture or any item for that matter does not see as much use as more common items. (Duh you say) :) I am convinced that there is not much peace of mind to be found in in objects that are almost “roped off” in our homes, offices, or studies, workshops even i...

Squaring the edge of cheap lumber with 2 tools in 30 seconds

07-14-2014 02:42 AM by jordanp | 4 comments »

I kind of stumbled on this method by accident.I haven’t tested it on hardwood but your big box soft wood lumber works perfectly.. Tools needed. Stanley No. 95 or equivalent (veritas or LN)Block plane or smoothing plane set for thin shavings. I usually take 8-12 passes with the 95 each direction,This is usually enough to get rid of that rounded edge you getWith big box store construction grade lumber. But wait! I just changed directions against the grain!Doesn’t matter...

Adirondack Chairs #1: Halfway into the White Oak version

09-17-2013 12:16 AM by Jacob C. Heffelfinger | 1 comment »

This is the first entry in this series, but I’m already halfway into the White Oak version of my Rockler Adirondack chair. I’m also building a Western Red Cedar version, but haven’t started dimensioning the boards yet. I’m starting the blog at this point in the project, because 1. I wasn’t a member of LJ before starting the project and 2. I need to get my thoughts down about what I’ve learned so far, because this is really my first TRUE hardwood project...

Tool thoughts #31: Happy Birthday - the report

08-15-2012 10:00 AM by NedB | 11 comments »

Morning all, Well yesterday was my birthday, and my loving wife and kids gave me two tools, plus some clothes. Since I doubt you LJ’s would care about the clothes, here are the new tools: Just an 18v Jigsaw (with laser sight) and a countersink/driver bit set. Not earth shattering, but they’ll be well used out in the shop. I have a relatively complete kit of Ryobi One+ tools, so I’m well stocked with two chargers and several batteries already. Now I just need something ...

Step-back Cupboard Build #2: Cutting and more gluing!

06-09-2009 06:27 AM by rwyoung | 3 comments »

Now that the sides are sized and cut to length, it is time for cutting feet and marking up to get ready for dados, rabbits and dovetails (dados, rabbits and dovetails, oh my! Sorry Dorthy.). The feet of the cupboard are cut into the sides and two lower front stiles. Notice that the “front” foot is slightly narrower than the “rear” foot. This 3/4” difference will be made up by the stile after it is attached. I drew the shape I wanted on some scrap 1/8”...

Jewelry Case Build #1: Rough Cutting Parts

04-22-2014 06:45 PM by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

I decided to build, what I think is, a nice jewelry case for my Niece’s birthday this summer. The case is Walnut with Bird’s Eye Maple for drawers and accents. There are some secondary 1/8” panels that will be either Baltic Birch or hardboard. Plans are from an older issue of Wood magazine. Here’s what it should look like when complete: Yesterday I cut everything but the hardboard to rough size. Then I dadoed out 10 tiny rails and stiles for half lap ...
