Step-back Cupboard Build #1: Lumber prep

06-09-2009 06:04 AM by rwyoung | 0 comments »

I decided I need a nice place to keep some china what-not that has started to accumulate around here. My parents keep dropping off stuff that they have stored at their house, now it is getting stored in mine… After much looking around and cogitation on the matter, I decided the first thing to make would be a cupboard, specifically a step-back cupboard. These are open on the top, and a closed cupboard on the bottom. Sometimes two pieces, other times one. Later I’ll look into...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #12: Living with old tools

05-12-2011 12:05 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Late last year, before I put the saw away for the winter, a piece of the casting on the tablesaw broke. It was causing some vibration and the blade to move side to side a bit when adjusting height. Not good in conjunction with zero clearance inserts. Anyway, it is getting warm again and time to get the saw ready for what I hope will be a productive summer. The “key” as I am calling it had to be fixed. There are 2 parts that mount on a shaft and are keyed together you can see ...

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...

Glue-up Blocks for Panels

09-28-2014 01:49 PM by Ken90712 | 10 comments »

I recieved a email from Woodpeckers tool sale for some Glue-up Panel Blocks. I thought thats a cool idea and a quick way to keep boards flat while gluing them up. While the price seemed fair, I have a close friend thats has a machine shop and we always like hanging out and working together. He has alot of materaial stocked up over the years as well. So this is what we came up with. Size is 7” x 3” x 1 1/2” Aluminum. We machined them on the Brigeport...

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...

Allyson's Nightstand #1: Introduction

05-19-2009 01:06 AM by Thomas Keefe | 3 comments »

My five year old daughter Allyson was complaining one night that she had no place to set things when she went to bed. As I was getting ready to begin a woodworking class I offered to build her a nightstand. She enthusiastically accepted. I showed her some pictures of different types of nightstands that I thought I might be able to build. Immediately, she began giving me requirements including that it had to have two drawers and a shelf on the bottom. I have been working on it now for a little...

My First Workbench #10: Day 10: Glue up finished, starting on joinery

08-21-2012 10:19 PM by RaggedKerf | 4 comments »

If you want to see the version with all the pictures, please click here. I got up with the sun today to get a head start on bench before the munchkins got up. First order of business was to unclamp the 2nd half that I glued up last night. Then, after a quick run with the plane to smooth out the mating faces, I glued up the two halves. It’s now one massive slab of wood where a little over a week ago, it was just a collection of 16 2×4s. This thing is gratifyingly heavy as well. ...

Day one

03-01-2012 02:11 AM by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...

Coffee Table Build #2: Panel Building

06-12-2014 10:47 PM by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

After glueing up the table top, I began making the frames for the sides. I cut four panels, and eight rails and stiles. I took the time to use my hollow chisel mortiser to mortise all the stiles and I made tenons on the rails with my tenoning jig. This went quite well and everything fit nicely. I decided to practise a haunched tenon on the rails although this part will never be seen, what better time to try something new! Two of the panels will be set into two of the frames but the oth...
