Jord's Ramblings #2: Christmas Has Come Early

11-26-2011 06:11 PM by JordsWoodShop | 0 comments »

Click here to view the full article with images After looking for a better quality thicknesser in classified newspapers and online trading sites for quite some time, I finally found something that seemed to good to be true, advertised as a 16″ panel saw, 6″ jointer, 15″ planer/thicknesser, and a 1200CFM industrial dust extractor, it caught my eye, and for the low price of $400 for the lot how could it not? At first I thought it would have been a typo in the advert, I thought it should h...

Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #1: Preparing the Wood

11-25-2011 08:11 PM by ~Julie~ | 5 comments »

This series of posts will show how I made four condiment totes for a local restaurant. I’m going to show most steps from rough wood to finished product. Most of you will find this basic, but hopefully I can help some beginners see how things are put together. The restaurant wanted holders for ketchup, mustard, relish and vinegar that the waitresses or waiters could take to the table with them. (In Canada, some of us like white vinegar on our fries. On my trips to the U. S., I hav...

Beginnings #2: Procuring Equipment

11-25-2011 09:16 AM by Knot_Board_At_Awl | 1 comment »

As written in my first post, I’m still at the beginning of my foray into woodworking as most of my wood projects so far are home renovations and grunt work! Throughout my home renovations, I have been keeping my eye open for equipment so that I can slowly build it up and have it ready for when I can really get into woodworking within the next two years or so (at least that is the plan). Most of my equipment is used (See my workshop for details). I figure that buying something used he...

Face Jointing Wide Boards on a 6" Jointer

11-23-2011 04:02 PM by tenontim | 13 comments »

After commenting and following a post by MichaelJ, I decided that a picture or two is worth a thousand words. So, here’s how I do it. (I had also posted in the past another way, but I like this method better)First, remove the blade guard on your planer. Set the fence to the maximum width.Face joint the board as you normally would, until the jointable surface is flat.You should now have the flat, jointed surface and the “rabbet” from the overhang.This is the spacer board, whi...

Work In Progress #2: Canasta Part Two

11-20-2011 06:11 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

So unfortunately I had not taken many pictures during the process of hand planing the curved door as well as cutting the dovetails for the carcass. I wanted the door to be thin, very thin, which ultimately led to many, many problems. I ended up with a final thickness of a bout 1/4 inch. While I was milling the door I did not have the wood move on me much at all, the Avodire I ended up getting was so incredibly stable I could do almost anything to it and it would not warp. The one thing ...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #1: FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT!

11-12-2011 01:08 AM by StumpyNubs | 63 comments »

Maybe “LOVE” is a strong word. But I’m really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It’s been over a year in development, and And I’d like to think it is a pretty unique format! Here’s how it works… The show is designed to have the feel of a single camera “reality” type show. It is meant to be a glimpse into our workshop as if you were just stopping in...

Jointer Refurbish #1: Refurbish Begins

11-09-2011 07:15 AM by PTIII | 6 comments »

My father had acquired this old, apparently inoperable, Sprunger jointer when I was much younger. Over the years, I watched it continue to accumulate dust as it sat in the corner, never repaired to be used. My dad kind of got away from any woodworking since that time, but I’ve developed a stronger interest. I have made efforts to “economically” outfit a respectable shop, and in that vain, was able to negotiate this salvageable piece of equipment for my own use. It is...

Veneered Sofa Table #1: Getting prepared, wrecking tools

10-25-2011 07:58 PM by SPHinTampa | 3 comments »

While I am waiting for the finish to cure on my tray project, I started my next adventure. I am building a sofa table to match, approximately, the end tables that I made last year ( I started by sketching out a design on paper with some basic measurements. Usually I get a little more detailed and do a scale drawing (I use MS powerpoint). Since I plan to match the end tables, I need a little less design detail and paper will do. Begin wit...

48" Pocket Door #9: Really this time, milling the stiles and rails

10-20-2011 05:06 AM by GregD | 1 comment »

The last installment of this series was originally titled Milling the stiles and rails and described prepping the blanks for the panels. Sigh. Sorry about that. I’ve fixed that entry title. This door would be for the passage between my foyer and formal living room, so I thought the best side should face the foyer. I inspected each blank for the stiles and rails and picked out the best side as the “foyer” side, marking each part with chalk to indicated what part it was...
