Barnsley Reproduction Build #1: Starting

11-05-2014 12:51 AM by stevo_wis | 1 comment »

Fine Woodworking Magazine published an article many years ago of a table that Sydney Barnsley built in the 1920’s.The table is now in a museum in Cheltenham England. The article had original drawings that I redrew in Sketchup.I traveled to England last year to see the original and I have just procured some old white oak barn beams that I am going to use for the undercarriage. The table fascinates me and will require a lot of hand work and chip carving.It may take a while, but I wi...

Cherry Nightstand #3: Raised Panels for the Sides

02-25-2014 12:32 AM by Todd | 2 comments »

Rather arbitrarily I chose to make the side panels for the nightstand first. Actually it is only the second set of raised panels that I have done so I was kind of nervous and wanted to get them out of the way. For the rail and stiles I used “Sommerfeld’s Roundover Chip-Free Rail & Stile Set”. This rail & stile design eliminates chipping that is caused by a buildup of stress on the leading edges of the pattern. You can see in the pics below how the leading eadge i...

Lamps for the living room #2: Coming together

04-08-2013 01:42 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

It has been a bit of a bother to find time for woodworking. I found some today and managed to put in a few hours. Today was about fitting the sides of the lamps to the side edges. Although I got all the I made progress on both lamps but I only got one assembled up to this point. I am going very slow on this so I can enjoy what I’m making. For starters, I added one coat of tung oil before starting the glue up. The glue joints don’t have any tung oil on them so thery are good...

Wedding Clock #5: Don't Get Mad at Me, The Back

05-18-2011 03:35 AM by kenn | 5 comments »

As a reminder, I am making an Art and Craft style clock based on one at The Grove Park Inn for my eldest daughter’s upcoming wedding. See post #2 for the goal. I’ve decided to make the back frame and panel assembly first. A little sharpening is order before I get started. Next I planed the stiles flat and square with my Lie-Nielsen #7. Then I just couldn’t handle the suspense anymore and had to lay out the panels and rails to see how it was going to look. This allowed ...

(This is my first attempt on a blog entry. English is my 2. language so bear over with me on spelling errors, funny language and all that.) This is a blog describing how i made this projeckt For a long time i´ve had this idea of making a rack for my cook books in the kitchen. They are just collecting dust on the shelf and not really getting the attension they deserve. Now i do see a lot of people using “plate racks” (dont know the word in english and google translate sugg...

CA Glue - Did I not take Chemistry?

06-16-2011 08:22 PM by Transition | 4 comments »

I also posted this in the Safety forum: •I often use my bare fingers around CA and will get it on my hands. This usually isn’t a big deal, however I recently let a good deal of it build up rapidly, and got a nice little burn. The burn was small, but the heat generated by the curing CA glue was very significant and extremely painful. I believe the heat caused the burn, and not a chemical reaction with my skin. The MSDS for CA glue also warns against using cotton gloves, as apparently CA wil...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #1: Figuring out angles

07-01-2013 03:50 AM by Mark Shymanski | 9 comments »

How’s that for a wishy washy title:-) ? I’ve been toying with the idea of building myself a small sailboat so the kids and I can putter about and maybe have some fun fishing from it. I am also hoping we can have fun putting it together so I don’t want to get too ambitious right out of the gate. This weekend I find myself with a bit of time on my hands so I thought I’d experiment with some of the methods folks have described about making a mast. Now before all ...
