Mission-style mahogany desk #5: Braces installed

09-01-2018 03:39 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

Some time in the shop this morning cutting and fitting the braces for the drawers. A few shots of a single brace. and the underside I’m using poplar because I ran out of mahogany. Currently, the braces are held in place by the stop dados only. No glue or other attachment. I also used the bottom “L” for the drawer guides. My thinking was that these braces are strictly for the drawers and are not meant to correct or support anything else. I would very much ...

Guitar Pedalboard Build

08-09-2018 12:51 AM by wrenchhead | 2 comments »

I made this homemade guitar pedalboard to clean up the cables and effects pedals I have. This was a fun woodworking project that only took a few hours over the weekend to complete. I used sapele wood and dovetail joinery to make this board. I installed a power inlet and a couple of 1/4” jacks to help with cord and cable management. I used General finishes Arm-R-Seal for a durable finish and added a .250 rubber feet so the pedal board doesn’t slide around. Thanks for watching ht...

Mahogany twin screw clamp

08-06-2018 12:18 AM by Dave Rutan | 7 comments »

I’ve thought of making one of these for fun, so today I finally did it. Who knows what great uses I’ll find for this clamp?The wood is mahogany and the finish is boiled linseed oil. This is an old style clamp that does not have reverse threads on half of the rod. It may be a bit dodgy to use, but it was made by me. I originally intended to make 3 of these, but I fudged the wooden parts for two of them.

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #25: Crest Rail Final Shaping

07-11-2018 12:30 AM by TungOil | 15 comments »

In February I was in Pasadena and took the opportunity to visit the Huntington Library Museum, which houses many Greene & Greene pieces. The museum holds one of the living room chairs from the Gamble House and that gave me a good opportunity to study an original up close. The crest rail is beautifully shaped with a lot of rounding and shaping evident. Here is a close up of the crest rail on the original. It will not be possible to create the dramatically swept back profile seen ab...

Mission-style mahogany desk #3: Front apron mortises done, and an assembly of the frame

06-20-2018 02:41 AM by Woodbutchery | 6 comments »

The front apron mortises are complete, and then a fit of the whole frame. I have a few tenons to adjust, some research and eventual installation of drawer frames, and a lot of practice on dovetail joinery before I make the drawers. Really happy with the way this is coming together. Happy to hear comments, as always. Thanks for looking.

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #24: Plug Locations and Square Holes- Part 2

06-06-2018 01:54 AM by TungOil | 7 comments »

With my plug locations established, I move on to drilling the holes and cutting the square plug holes. I set up stops on the drill press and drill the clearance holes in the front legs, back legs and crest rails. There are 27 square plugs on each of the 15 chairs, for a total of 405 square plugs. After all of the clearance holes are drilled, I cut the square plug holes using the Lee Valley square hole punches. I align the punch with the hole using a long dowel pin, then square th...

Dutchy Excavator Build #3: Tracks complete.. moving on..

06-03-2018 09:25 AM by darkmyble | 9 comments »

Hi folks… well I eventually got the tracks finished. I’ve not been doing so well with my health so had to take a few days ‘rest’ urghhhh.. The one thing I like about this plan is it’s easy to follow and concise. More so than any others. Despite being a relative newcomer to the world of model building I’ve amassed hundreds of plans. I have to say these plans are far superior in every way. Right so finishing up the tracks was a fairly straightforward pr...

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #23: Rounding Parts and Establishing Plug Locations- Part 1

05-24-2018 01:37 AM by TungOil | 2 comments »

With the lower stretchers rough cut and the cloud lifts formed, I move on to some of the detail work. First, I round over the edges of the lower stretcher parts with a 1/8” round over bit in the router table. With the rounding complete, I compare 3/16” and 1/4” square ebony plugs for size on the lower stretcher. The 3/16” plug looks better to my eye so I cut 3/16” square holes in all of the stretcher parts using the Lee Valley square punch. Except f...

Dutchy Excavator Build #2: Adding uniformed rounded ends to track parts...

05-22-2018 03:01 PM by darkmyble | 9 comments »

Hi folks.. I’m cracking on with the Dutchy Excavator and been working on the tracks. Parts B & C are exactly the same except that part B has a 2mm hole and parts C has a 2.5mm hole. The issue I was having was making the rounded edges to both parts B and C. I was knocking off the corners with the bench sander and then sanding them round with my proxxon pen sander.. it wasnt brilliant to be honest. Uniformity is the key.. and for me this is a huge build, and if i’m goi...
