Novel Bookshelf- drawing in sketchup

02-17-2010 12:21 AM by Adam Weis | 1 comment »

This is a piece I plan to build over the next few months to use as a show piece in craft fairs and possibly to put in a gallery. I have lots of connections in the art world so hopefully I can find a home for it.

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...

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...

Hello friends, This time i want to show u how i made an arbour. I will try to show it in steps. It will be a lot of steps ;)In the beginning i had to made a project. I based just on a picture of completed work, so i had to project all of it (roof, floor, walls, connetions, ...). This was the first time for me to do such a things, and make it. I wasn’t easy to do.

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #4: Learning some more new skills, completing the main box

07-21-2014 12:40 PM by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I haven’t been taking as many pictures the last bit, but we’ve made a lot of progress. We we neared the completion of the main box, we needed to make some bevels on the bottom trim. Rather than resort to the router, we went for the more hand finished look, making the bevels with a plane.They came out really well, and after assembly, he also beveled the corners as you’ll see below. It all turned out very nice. Next came the glue up of the bottom trim pieces and the inst...

Dovetail Information #1: Introduction

08-21-2012 04:02 AM by Mike Ogden | 0 comments »

View the full blog with photos here! When someone, woodworkers and non-woodworkers alike, hear the term ‘dovetail’ they usually do not imagine a dove’s tail. The picture something similar to the photo on the right. Dovetails are generally either what can be called ‘half-blind’, or ‘through’. In the furniture my classmates, myself, and other artisans create, you can see this joint used very routinely. Drawers, especially, are a dovetail gold min...

Guitar Rack #1: My next project

06-04-2012 12:01 AM by paullymac | 1 comment »

I decided to make a guitar rack to hold up my guitar off the floor. It has spent several years on a cheap metal stand on the floor. I got some sapele outs to use for the short parts, but the backbone of the rack will be made with maple. So far I made the bottom supports (with the general guideline/plan to the left of the supports) I plan to dovetail the supports onto a plank across the back. This first one is hand done with a hand saw and chisels (I’ve used a handsaw and ro...
