Split Top Roubo Bench Build #6: Flattening and starting on the tail vise

03-05-2015 04:02 AM by ic3ss | 1 comment »

Last night I snuck out to the shop to take the clamps from the front top that I glued up earlier that day and used them to glue up two of the legs. I just had to get it done before bed. This morning I just let them sit as I had other stuff to do. I started with flattening the bottom surface of the front top. I had to run it across the jointer in halves like I did with the back top and I thought I did ok but I realized that after running the top surface through the planer, that surface was...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #5: . . . and more gluing and planing

03-03-2015 11:44 PM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

This morning I was out in the shop by 10am, eager to go. Motrin is a wonderful thing. I took the now full width back half out of the clamps and grabbed a glue scraper and went to work. I was able to only get a little bit of the glue runs off, so I switched to my jack plane. I had a bit of an alignment issue with these boards so I had some fairly high spots to flatten out. I did the bare minimum with the plane until I was worn out, it didn’t take long. Then I mustered all of my st...

funny bird house - Zwitscherkasten oak

03-03-2015 08:57 PM by Friedel1 | 2 comments »

The idea came from a neighbor. He had an old “bird feeder” very rot and yet functional. I offered him this bird box rebuild. I then built many of them:-)First of beech. Ha! Evil mistake! Well, at that point I knew even less about wood properties, but that beech is so bends I never expected.So I built one from the remnants of a corner seat in oak, 19 mm, finger-jointed. As always, not screwed, not nailed … .just dowelled. The Domino system by Festool is just great.A carpenter swears by Lamello...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #4: More gluing

03-03-2015 02:58 AM by ic3ss | 3 comments »

Since I began woodworking almost five years ago and slowly building my shop, one of the things that has proven difficult for me to prioritize was buying clamps. We all know the old saying “You can’t have enough clamps”. And while this is true, the projects that I have mostly done didn’t require very many clamps. And the larger projects I did, I just made do with what I had. This bench project has spurred me to start buying parallel clamps, but at $40 + a pop and with s...

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 | 15 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
