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...

Southwest Cocktail table #7: Table Built - on to the the finish ........ line.

08-11-2013 01:47 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 15 comments »

Had a bit more time this morning and late afternoon. I finished up building the legs then got them attached. Lot’s of cleanup work is required but the rest of my time will be spent making it just so. I decided to make the inside legs into triangles. It’s a lot less work, and as I understand it, sturdier. I go a little cleanup done of the top. I’m chomping at the bit to do some more work. Id be surprised if I could get her ready for finish in ano...

Windsor Institute- Nantucket Fan Back

03-10-2009 04:14 AM by F Dudak | 4 comments »

Hello all, Just wanted to touch base with you all and let you know that I am in NH taking another class with Mike Dunbar in beautiful snowy Hampton. I arrived from PA in the early evening yesterday after 60 degree weather only to wake up to a snowy morning. The funny part is that I loaded my road bike into my car in case I would get some riding in on the beautiful coast…not. We worked on the seat and the crest today and I believe we will be finishing the seat and legging up the chai...

Shaker Media Cabinet #1: Shaker Media Cabinet #1

09-02-2009 06:44 PM by skeeter | 4 comments »

My customer really liked the documenting of my last project on this site so I’m at it again. This is a really big ( for me) cabinet for dvds. It’s dimensions are 82 high and 50 wide. Glass doors on top and solid doors on bottom. Sliding dovetails while I love the look and the strength are a pain in the ass. Just my opinion. Enjoy.the model drawing

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...

Exercises in Artisanship #23: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 6 THE FINAL

08-14-2012 07:28 PM by jjw5858 | 4 comments »

This table is special I suppose because it is my first. My shop being set in all natural conditions sure made this a spread out project, there were some truly brutal hot and humid days that let this sit and wait for a better time to work with it. I wanted a piece that had touches of rustic warmth supported with lines of a Renaissance rhythm. To stand back and see the entire composition in it’s thought out form, from some ragged sketches to this on my living room floor is a nice reward for ...

Dovetail Tales #1: A Bandsaw Jig For Pins and Tails

07-24-2013 08:36 PM by GeBeWubya | 4 comments »

You might say I’m a bit router-phobic and handsaw challenged. I needed to find a way to use my bandsaw to cut dovetails for a set of small boxes I’m making. Calling this a jig is a little bit of an exaggeration; I cut a wedge with a `1:7 slope from a 6” 2 X 4. I also added a fence on the blade side of my bandsaw miter gauge. The wedge laying on the flat rectangular face with one triangular face square against the miter gauge fence makes a ramp on which to lay th...

Education and torment #2: Red Oak Sandpaper Storage cabinet

01-12-2014 06:44 PM by GeneR | 3 comments »

This cabinet is made from leftover red oak, Luan, birch plywood and plexiglass that I had in my shop. It is approximately 17”T x 7 1/2”W x 6” deep. I would have liked to make it a little taller to handle a couple more shelves and slightly deeper to have been able to recess the back panel. The Box I first sent the oak through the joiner to ensure I had 1 flat square edge. I then cut the board to the proper widths on my table saw then to final lengths on the Miter...
