Small Secretary With Tambour Door #9: Figured Inlay Drawers and Top

02-28-2015 10:44 AM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

In this video, I have a nice piece of figured walnut, and resaw it to make book matched drawer fronts. These pieces get laminated to another piece of walnut. I also make a small frame for the hutch to rest on the top, and make the top. And of course, everything gets inlay!As always, I welcome your questions and comments! http://youtu.be/yXvMV4aHAIc

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #3: Milling

02-25-2015 03:12 AM by ic3ss | 3 comments »

I was tasked by my boss to modify a part for the machines that I work on. A 6’ long and half inch square piece of plastic that is a guide rail. I had to rip it on the table saw and ream out the screw holes. I made them order me a special plastic cutting blade that arrived on Monday. Last week in anticipation for continuing my bench build, I had ordered a new ripping blade so consequently I was on hold until both blades arrived. The plastic one came first so I got that little job out of ...

From Rust to (Saw) Dust: A Journey #1: Introduction

02-24-2015 11:17 PM by gleasoncraftworks | 3 comments »

Hello all! This is my first post to LumberJocks, and I’m looking forward to sharing my journey into the world of woodworking with you all, as well as learning everything I can from the old (sorry, EXPERIENCED!) hands out there. I’m an Information Technology consultant by profession, but I’ve also been a rough carpenter/handyman for a few years now on the side. I’ve done a few finer things in that time—I’m particularly proud of a set of built-ins ...

Park Model Deck #1: Unconventional Park Model Deck

02-23-2015 01:54 AM by Jim Jakosh | 13 comments »

This year the project for our park model was a new deck. This grouping of photos show how I built it- but not the conventional way. I designed it to have drawers below for storage and wanted the railing on the outside of the deck the carpet could be easily changed in the future. Here is what we started with: I used my laser mount (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/109042) to set the level line to start: And then I built small rectangles with 2×4”s and connected top and bott...

Jointer tips

02-23-2015 01:46 AM by LJackson | 3 comments »

I recently purchased a used Jet six inch cabinet jointer. The last time I used a jointer was decades ago in high school shop class. I don’t know if I have just forgotten, or if I was never taught the proper operation of the jointer. What I do remember, is coming out of high school thinking it was exclusively used for flattening the edge of a board, not also the face. Through investigation, and experimentation, I have come to some ideas on how the jointer is to be set up and used. The...

VLOG 19 | 2 | 15 - Addicted to buying tools !

02-22-2015 11:54 AM by Tom Howbridge | 0 comments »

I just made a few investments including a Dewalt drill some hardwood boards, and some other tools including a Stanley hand plane, I also got a planer/jointer to restore. Although if I used, these tools could set me up for life. Then I will be more than happy. http://youtu.be/HTpNuddA4pY?list=UU9nX40E1w6tOplx7kc6Bu-Q

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #2: Still gathering supplies

02-20-2015 09:33 PM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

So this is taking too long, I’m impatient. I called the wood supplier last week and was told that more 8/4 hard maple would be in the store on Tuesday. I called Tuesday and was told Wednesday. Called Wednesday and was told Thursday. I give up, so I went south to anther supplier in Eugene and I was only able to find one suitable board to complete the legs and one really nice 8/4 piece of walnut for the chop and the deadman. While I was there I got a call from the shop in portland that th...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #1: Preparing for the build

02-11-2015 02:07 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

Like many of us I have looked at all of those pictures of other people’s roubo workbenches with a jealous eye for quite some time. The ones built with Benchcrafted hardware just seemed to be top notch in quality, and they look like woodworker candy. I’ve had this build on my to-do list since 2011 because I don’t have a woodworking bench with woodworking vises or anything to hold my work down. I’m forced to use my old Unisaw as a bench and the best I can do is use a cla...
