Bridal chest #1: Prep / glue-up

07-18-2014 06:46 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

My youngest daughter is getting married in September. I’ve decided long ago that i’d make each (I’ve got two) a bridal chest when that time came. Well it’s here and I’m doing it. I’ve made blanket chests before but they’ve been made with raised panels. This one is much simpler. Almost Shaker in nature for the design. It will have large finger or box joints at the corners. I think I’ll make a simple jig for my router to accomplish that. It will b...

The Board. A Tongue In Cheek Essay...... With Pictures Part l

07-14-2014 11:21 AM by Gene Howe | 31 comments »

Recently, there was a bit of concern expressed regarding a board that was posted as a project. it got me to thinking (a rare occurrence) that some folks might not understand or appreciate the dedication, skill and work that is involved in the making of a board. Hence this blog/tutorial. First, lets define the term for those not familiar with boards. Most authorities agree that a board is a flat slab of wood or other material for some specific purpose. For our purposes, we’ll limit th...

Why I Buy Used Power Tools

07-10-2014 05:52 AM by TheWoodenOyster | 6 comments »

Why I Buy Used Power Tools Alright, below is my spiel on why I buy used tools. Just like the rest of my posts, I am not claiming this to be gospel truth, but this is my thought process when it comes to making large power tool purchases. Hopefully this won’t overlap with my craigslist blog too much, but I feel they are different topics and each deserve their own post. When I acquired a real shop (a garage) for the first time about 18 months ago, I happily set out to look at purchasing my...

Acerbi Jointer Restoration #1: 1 Weekend - Unassembly parts, initial process

Acerbi is a Brazilian brand that went bankrupt in the 90s. They made high quality iron cast machines during various years. All of your machines had been made 100% in Brazil. This project consists in restore a vintage jointer and give him a modern look. Model Specifications: Manufacture: Acerbi Model: DES-2 (10”) Year: Unknown This is the jointer when I bought. Dirt, a lot of dust and rust, and some missing parts. The initial work was unassembly the entire machine, to c...

Buying Your Last Tool First

06-19-2014 03:12 PM by TheWoodenOyster | 6 comments »

Buying Your Last Tool First I acquired my first shop space around 2 years ago. Once I moved into my shop, I began my quest to fill the shop with awesome power tools. This post will discuss the overarching rule I follow when buying my power tools, and some examples of tools I have purchased. My thought process about buying powertools is this: Buy your last tool first!!! What I mean by that is make your first tablesaw, bandsaw, router, jointer, etc the one that you want to be using when y...

Waste of Time and Wood Today

06-13-2014 07:57 PM by Dave Rutan | 10 comments »

I think I need a new blade for my table saw. At least a blade is cheaper than buying a jointer. I had this idea that I wanted to start making a project today and I didn’t want to buy the wood. So I rummaged through some out of the way spots in my workshop and came up with two identical drawer fronts. The wood I need for the project needs to be 12 inches across and these two 8 inch drawer fronts were my best bet. Unfortunately, I’d have to glue them together edgewise. No probl...

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...
