A journey into the workshop. #28: A mantle clock underway in the shop.

12-13-2009 06:07 AM by dbhost | 8 comments »

So the mantle clock project is underway, the walnut and oak strips are cut, and the stripe section is glued up and drying in the clamps… It is now too late to run power tools, so the cross section will need to wait until tomorrow. I had a $10.00 off any purchase of $20.00 or more at Woodcraft coupon, so I got my walnut there. I really only needed / wanted 2 board feet anyway, just enough to finish up this project, and maybe do another one for MY desk after Christmas is over…...

Hello one and all....

12-05-2009 11:50 PM by apopj | 15 comments »

Just found this nifty site, joined and wanted to say hello and to thank all of the welcomes… I am a neophyte woodworker, only been playing at it for about 30 years. Nothing major just piddling in the shop. Current shop consists of Delta 14” bandsaw, Rigid table saw, Rigid jointer, Delta planer, Rockler router table, Delta drill press, Delta dust system, Dewalt miter saw, and a Dewalt scroll saw along with assorted power and hand tools. Currently working on bandsawn boxes for...

Making Wood from Wood ;)

12-01-2009 03:38 PM by David Craig | 2 comments »

Been busy with my day job lately but was able to spend a few hours downstairs. I am finally starting to deal with my wood hoard and getting pieces together for small gifts for a couple family members. Mostly weekend style projects that probably will include an ornament or two and a couple of boxes. I am a notorious hoarder of wood and I have wood scraps, pieces of furniture, and even a few rough pieces of wood that I saved from a maple tree I cut down a couple years ago. At the time of cut...

First Box #4: Cut to size

11-27-2009 08:20 PM by Bret | 6 comments »

(This is actually part 5 but I messed up the way I added them so they got reversed….) I ventured back into the shop today to continue prepping my box stock. I planed it down to roughly 1/2” and used my tablesaw to size all the pieces the same. I then went to my router table and mitered the ends of the end pieces lying flat on the table. So far so good. But when I went to route the front and back, I had signifigant breakage & tearout. Even slowing down the bit d...

First Box #5: Fresh start (so far)

11-27-2009 12:44 AM by Bret | 5 comments »

(This is actually part 4, but I messed up setting its Series until after I had part 5 written, which got added as part 4…) So far so good. I picked up a new piece of curly maple (with plenty to spare!) and after cutting it down to roughly the size I’d need for the project and after removing the knots which spoiled the ends of the board (but which saved me 10% at Woodcraft!) I proceeded to joint an edge and cut it down to rough size for the box. Now I need to decide how to d...

Design Concepts #1: Custom Stationary Tool Cabinet

11-19-2009 11:44 PM by Unskilled | 0 comments »

I was tempted for a long time to create a tool cabinet like I’ve seen in many books and magazines (Shopnotes’ ‘Heirloom Toolbox’ comes to mind), but wasn’t prepares for such a daunting task immediately since I am a new woodworker. I then decided that I really like my Snap-On knockoff tool cabinet, so I have considered an alternate design to hold a very specific set of tools. So specific in fact, that I plan on french-fitting every tool in every drawer aside fro...

Restoring an old 6" jointer - Delta Milwaukee 37-207 #1: Restoring an old jointer for the shop

11-08-2009 10:32 PM by Bob #2 | 11 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I rescued a an old 6” Delta/Milwaukee jointer from a Garage sale. ( Circa 1940’s)The fellow I bought it from was mostly into old cars and had no use for this iron and it sat rusting in his way. We made a decent deal and I lugged it homeward.The surfaces of the in and out feed table were rusted and pitted and I did think about having them re honed at a machine shop but first I felt it better to run it to see what else was wrong.About and hour with some rust re...

Carpenter's Tool Box for soon-to-be two year-old boy

11-05-2009 05:16 AM by NBeener | 12 comments »

My wife’s grandson is somehow about to turn two. Time to turn him on to tools, huh? That’s the primary reason I’ve been taking a whack at dovetail joints. The tool box is in dry fit, right now. In the next day or two, I’ll move to glue-up. The cuts in the ends of the handle are for wedge/shims to hold the handle in place. The pics: ....Current plan is to fill it with something like this….. I did something wrong with the plywood bottom. The ...
