Batch process in progress #1: Shaker Styled Cherry End Tables

04-11-2008 08:39 PM by Kipster | 5 comments »

I started these tables a while ago, while I was recovering from surgery. Most of the time spent so far has been turning the legs. I made the proto- type last year and posted in my projects. The task at hand is dry fitting the mortise and tenon joints all 36 of them. This is going slow but I have one table near completion. I am telling myself to continue the dry fit for the other two tables and wait and glue them when I finish dry fitting the other two tables. I would be interest...

10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #4: |Step 3| Learn how to Refurbish, Tune, & Sharpen Tools

04-15-2014 03:18 PM by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

My wife loves to say, “hun, I think you love restoring hand tools almost as much as woodworking!” I think she’s right. There’s something magical about taking an antique (and very well built) woodworking hand tool and bringing it back to working order. Removing the rust, tuning up the parts, and sharpening the blade gives a feeling of satisfaction; especially when seeing the finished result. I get a feeling of a connection with the past, with my ancestors, with a time when things were made ...

Router Cabinet Redo #1: Motivation & Research

02-27-2017 04:45 AM by edwood1975 | 8 comments »

I built a router cabinet and table about 2 years ago and it’s simply a must have tool in my shop . Although it was one of my first shop projects I did a decent job on it but the design failed in a few ways . You can see my first router cabinet here : The other day I was I was wheeling it and 2 of the casters fell off , I used the casters that you insert into a leg, the leg cracked and out came the caster. I also built my own table using MDF and that began to sag where the route...

Tool Box #2: case work

08-12-2014 11:01 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, spent a bit of time getting the case put together. Things just seem to roost on my benchtop. Setting the panels upside down on an almost flat benchtop. Clamp an end panel to the front/back panel. The longer panels have a series of counter-bored screw holes, about seven per corner. Clamp a corner together, add a few screws, move the clamp a bit to uncover the one or two that are hiding under them. Work my way around, by adding the other end panel, rotate the three piece set aro...

Not always wood #1: PVC Pipe Stool with some woodworking.

PVC Pipe Stool with some woodworking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM82xM8cwf4 Even though my Youtube channel is known as ‘Wacky Wood Works’ the first line on my about page reads, “Making simple projects with wood, plastic, metal, fabric, cardboard & anything else. Simply making stuff. Most projects are made purely off the cuff and only have a general idea how it will turn out.” So basically just generally making stuff. Although wood will be my most co...

The Board, Pt. ll

07-20-2014 06:22 PM by Gene Howe | 22 comments »

Well, after two power outages that caused the loss of the last two attempts, I think I’ve got this “save” thing down. We left off last time with a admonition to make a detailed plan of the proposed final project for which the board we are about to make will be used. The next step is to select the lumber with which to make the board. This is a major step. First the species is to be determined. MDF is out! As is plywood. Rose wood is nice and so is bird’s eye maple...

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 ...
