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 (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/22185). 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...

48" Pocket Door #8: Preparing the bookmatched panel blanks

10-12-2011 05:45 AM by GregD | 3 comments »

It has been a long time since my last blog post. Sorry. I was more intent on getting the door done than writing about it. At this point the stile and rail blanks are complete, so I turned to the panels. One option was to make each panel the full thickness of the door – 1 3/4 inches – and raise the panel on each side. A second option is to make panels half the thickness of the door – 7/8 inches – raise the panel on 1 side, and use 2 panels back-to-back for each...

Shopmade Jointer #2: Getting the motor and cutterhead from Ryobi AP13AK Thicknesser

09-30-2011 07:42 AM by Armand | 8 comments »

Proceeding with the jointer build. Before i started disintegrating all the parts of the thicknesser, I tested it first a few times and there was no snipe and other issues pertaining to its function, the machine was still in its prestine condition. Momentarily I hesitated to tear it down but i have to build this Jointer out from this machine. The only objective of demolishing this valuable machine is just to get the essential parts for the Jointer, the motor and the cutterhead. 1. The Ryob...

I know, weird title, but I am busy celebrating the release of my latest video, “The Making of the Rocker Cradle.” Sure had a lot of fun with this one. As they say, “what I really want to do is direct…” Okay, maybe not. Hope you enjoy the clip. Cheers! video
