Sofa Table from tension wood #1: Sofa Table from tension wood#1

06-08-2018 03:08 AM by cathyb | 7 comments »

This is a series to show my process when dealing with tension wood. I started this topic in a forum call “Darn that curly tension wood” to introduce the topic. Now that I have a plan in process, I wanted to show you how to deal with wood, which is unwilling to play nice: I am working with curly koa and walnut. I chose walnut because it is relatively porous and will be a good choice for my laminations. When you have wood with too much tension, you can still make a great piec...

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #1: Precursor and laminating the body

06-12-2014 10:46 PM by Wally331 | 4 comments »

Intro- I’ve been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are a lot cheaper (if you have some time on your hands) and you don’t have to deal with old warped wood and a host of other problems you may encounter. I can’t say I am an expert by any means, I’m simply sharing my...

Roubo Inspired Bench #2: Enjoying the winter months with my Beech!

05-25-2013 02:45 PM by jusfine | 2 comments »

I have extended the length of the base to make room for more drawers, and also the length of the top to 96” instead of the WW planned 87” since my material was 10’ long and there seemed to be thought at the time that it would be better suited for what I do… After a lot of planing and thicknessing (those pieces are really awkward and heavy after awhile) I was ready to start with the glue-ups of the top sections. Most of the beech pieces I had were between 6&#...

Ready, Fire, Aim: Twisted Laminations Cane #1: Why not?

03-07-2011 09:30 PM by Lee Barker | 4 comments »

Thursday last a very good client asked if I could make him a cane. “Unique” was his only request. I have made canes before, but mostly by putting a T-handle on a limb of some gnarlment. In pondering the word unique I couldn’t get past the cliche of multi-colored lamination with purpleheart in the middle. Hey, it looks great, looks right, looks strong. Then I thought about giving it a twist. Friday: First I cut my 1.25 inch stock (various species) to length&#...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #2: Arched Candle Holder

12-17-2009 07:05 PM by sras | 4 comments »

I changed the title of this series since this next entry uses wood I don’t think I could ever throw away (it used to say “burn bucket” instead of “scrap pile”). I have had these this planks of cherry for a long time. They are about 24”x3.25”x1/8”. This is another case where I do not have a design, but I’ll figure it out as I go… I had cut them for a project that didn’t work out and they have sat ever since. I decided to ...
