Cedar Train Table #1: Praticing Dovetails

10-24-2009 at 06:59 PM by Bahremu | 3 comments »

Last year i built a simple train table for my children. It’s functional and they love it. This year my youngest son’s pre-school is soliciting donations for their annual fundraising auction. I will donate a newly made train table. This time more nicely built one. As lots of lumberjocks have built a train table for their children and/or grandchildren, we all know it’s a flat top with an apron that provides a small lip. I’ve decided that this project will be wher...

Working on our new Cabinets

12-03-2012 at 07:36 PM by magicmark | 9 comments »

I’m using the Kreg jig on the face of the cabinets and to join the ply together. So far I like how sturdy it is using glue and screws but I could kick the lumber “expert” that talked me into using 1/2 in ply for the carcasses. I’m doing ok with it, but I wish I’d at least got 5/8 in or even 3/4. I was told 1/2 in is the industry standard…so I guess part of me took that as a challenge, and the other part took the savings on the ply. I have a Skil router ...

Cheap Table: finishing up the base

02-03-2013 at 06:52 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, front and back leg assemblies are out of the clamps. Need to fit a brace between the front and back apron. Since this is a Hand Tool exercise, I guess i will do it that way First a piece of scrap needed to be cut to length. Nice Sycamore Handled Crosscut saw. Next, lay out for a Dovetail. One on each end. I used an old router bit to mark out the dovetail shape. Then a little saw work Then cut out the waste with a chisel. I chop down at an angle to match the shape...

My First Box Attempt

11-02-2012 at 10:44 PM by icemanhank | 10 comments »

Hi there, I have been doing bits,n pieces of woodworking for years now and after recently finding this site was inspired by ‘Don’ to have a go at making a box. I have unashamedly been using one of his boxes as a guide because I love the look of it. I joined my local woodworkers club ‘Hawkesbury Woodcraft Co-operative’ and the guys there have been really helpful and supportive, there is also a really good array of equipment and materials to use at the club. I h...

The Craftsman's Path #32: Dreadnought Guitar - Sanding the kerfed linings and installing the rosette

03-24-2008 at 04:28 PM by Mark Mazzo | 5 comments »

This weekend I took the next steps in the guitar project. I posted about an interesting process for contouring the kerfed linings to accept the radiused top and back later in the prokect. I also got quite a surprise while installing the rosette that took a bit of thinking to recover from. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks for reading!

10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #2: |Step 1| Understand & Buy the Right Hand Tools

04-15-2014 at 08:01 AM by WoodAndShop | 6 comments »

1.1 Which Hand Tools Do You Need? After woodworking for several years, conducting “research”, and attending Roy Underhill’s Woodwright’s School, I’ve compiled three lists of hand tools: (1) urgent (what you need to get started), (2) semi-urgent (what you need to do more than just basic projects), and (3) non-urgent (improves convenience, tools for advanced projects, or items that are fun to have, but not vital). Used vintage hand tools are better in most cases (and less expensive), alth...

Chair for the study desk unit for my son #1: finally started the last project

05-01-2009 at 09:06 PM by Junji | 5 comments »

So this will be the last project of “study desk unit for my son”. I have been thinking about this ever since I started this while project, but the other day somebody here is LJ introduced me the projects of Nakashima, so I decided to go with that taste. (thank you Todd and one.hit.wonder) So here is the plan, kind of easy one as always. From woodworking I am not sure about the extra support legs, I know it will be much cooler without them, but I have to make it strong, s...

Lamps for the living room #1: Decent Start

03-21-2013 at 06:27 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 5 comments »

I have been building some lamps for the Living room. I discovered an issue. My small miter saw used to be as accurate as anything else I could manage. I didn’t realize that the fence had warped until I started assembling. My 45 angles wer more like 45.75. It threw a wrench in things and gave me a little firewood but I recovered most of the cuts. I’m ready to move on. I was able to straigten the fence on the small saw but now I’m marking my cuts and disregardng the presets...

handtool workbench #2: starting some planing

07-02-2013 at 02:05 PM by Tugboater78 | 7 comments »

Started planing down some of the boards for the top. They will be two ~12” wide sections with an ~ 6” gap/well board between. I am leaning towards having the center section removeable, flipped one way it will be level with the other 2 sections, flipped upside down it will sit lower. All ideas are still not set in stone except the 2 sections. One problem i foresee is my lack of good clamps, wish I had the cash for a couple cabinet masters. I may go run the BigBlueBox card up a ...
