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...

Thorsen House Cabinet #10: First cabinet door...."J'adore/j'ai a door"

04-03-2015 10:36 AM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Apologies for mangling French irretrievably there just to force out a pun…. The doors presented a few logistical challenges. Surprisingly, the internal rebate angles were the least of these. The largest challenge was in the form of how best to clamp the main outer frame whilst gluing. The frame comprises morticed hinge and lock stiles with two tenoned upper/lower rails. (the mortice and tenon sizes increased in height which the drawing does not indicate) Prior to any shapin...

Dutch Tool Chest #5: screw it to it and put on the lingerie...

03-11-2015 09:56 PM by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

Broke out the eggbeater drill, brace with countersink bit, and a screw driver. Marked out my holes with combo square and awl. Drove in some #10 1 1/4 slotted screws by hand, ended up with a blister. . 4 per side per shelf, overkill i believe, planned on only 3 but apparently my subconscious kicked in and made me do 4. they are all clocked inline with the grain for you ocd individuals (wish i had some Citric acid to remove the zinc plating) I shoulda went with my first idea and coun...

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...

G&G Blanket Chest Build #6: Sides part II and an oops...

01-02-2015 03:42 PM by Ottacat | 1 comment »

After using the template to route out the fingers it was now time to put on the 1/8” roundover. For me it was a lot easier to use the router table for this step. The edges of the fingers also needed to be rounded over. This could have been done with a rasp or small sanding block but I decided to just stand the board up on end on the router table and do it there. Even the longer 41” or so sides weren’t difficult to hold during this operation. Next came plenty of...

Custom Desk #1: Curved Dovetailed Drawers

04-12-2008 02:57 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 17 comments »

Willie asked yesterday if I could explain how I make dovetails on curved drawers. I may have just made it more confusing than it needs to be. I was able to find a few photos of making a drawer for a desk I built. I hope this helps. Lee

building a bench and stuff #2: Stretchers and how I assembled

05-19-2015 01:33 AM by TheFridge | 4 comments »

I left off with some cypress jointed and planed for the stretchers with a loose idea of what I wanted to do. I was originally hoping to do a “loopy” sort of deal (like the loopy infill), but I’d need to invest in a router guide bushing set and make or buy some templates and bits. In the end, I just did this Which translates to this. After milling the stretchers and the dados in the legs, I went ahead and glued the legs in first. Then the stretchers. Then a little purpleheart...

what is a buddy to you

04-04-2010 08:27 PM by grizzman | 28 comments »

Ive had an experience here at lumber jocks that has caused me to think on this topic today. early this morning i awoke ..it was around 4am…so i went to read my email and catch up with that. I had a private message sent to me, it was entitled apology. This of coarse caught my attention, so i opened it to read and by the time i was done i felt several emotions…one of them was ashamed, the reason being is as i have gone through my life, being a good friend or as we call them here a g...

The Tone Project

12-28-2009 07:19 PM by JimDaddyO | 6 comments »

As a new member here, I figured that I should share the project I am working on. I am by no means a luthier, or a highly skilled woodworker (yet). This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. It started by felling an ash tree a few years ago and getting it milled into boards. Here I am in my large workshop planing the boards to thickness. Note the fancy chip/dust collector. Did my first bookmatch ever! Made a core from maple. glueing the back to the ...
