i decided to make a nite table with the scraps that i had remaining from the dresser project. i had some problems tapering on the table saw though—i don’t know why but for some reason it never comes out good—the plunge saw saved the day though. yeah, anyway i had some poplar, 1/2 and 1 piece of 3/4 (small piece)plywood laying around and thought i’d make something of it. right now i’m at the point of tinkering with the drawers to get a perfect fit—sin...
Summer has flown by. I found a little time here and there to work on the stools. It never seemed like much, but when I look at the result I can see significant progress. I’ll show how I spent my summer (when I was in the shop). Preliminary Leg Shaping Several of the leg pieces shifted shape during the rough cut process. The final shape of the back legs requires some material removal. I decided to shape the side that removed material from the center of the leg. If the wood shifted ...
This featured article is part of the Let’s Build series. Be sure to view Wood Turning...a Segmented Fruit Bowl...part 1. This sequel continues our study of one of the great woodworking crafts, segmented woodturning. In this woodworking video our focus shifts to the actual wood turning, sanding, and finishing of a fruit bowl that contains 24 segments of which there are 12 staves of light walnut and 12 vertical spacers of dark walnut. Ribboned mahogany wood is used for the base. ...
I wanted to share my experiences in making landing nets with you. This is from an article I wrote for the August 2010 edition of On The Fly, the newsletter for the Fly Fishing Club of Orange County. Building the Perfect Landing NetBy Greg Madrigal Like many of you, I started fishing when I was very young, and something about it never let go of me. Growing up with 5 sisters left our family with little to no money most of the time. Work for my father was hard to come by growing u...
Finished installing the top and it’s starting to look very attractive. Although I can’t seem to get one end of it to sit completely flat but other that everything seems alright. Tell me what you think…!
This unique woodworking project is part of the Let’s Build Series. For this intriguing, woodworking video tutorial we are once again in the woodworking shop creating a custom wood turning, a fruit bowl for the breakfast room table. The wood we are using is light walnut for the 12 staves, dark walnut for the 12 vertical spacers, and ribboned mahogany for the base. The challenge we face is gluing all 24 segments at one time. For this project we need to be dead-on accurate and focuse...
Sometimes I am just like a child. I guess that age has nothing to do with maturity, does it? Here I was yesterday, doing what I was supposed to be doing (drawing) and my partner called that he got off of work early. By early, I mean it was about 2pm. He asked if I wanted to head to Bernie’s and re-saw that wood we got on Friday (I guess he is a child, too!) and it took me about half a second to answer YES! I have been thinking about all those beautiful wood pieces since we got ba...
As featured in the Let’s Build series... Many of woodworkers receive woodworking magazine subscriptions in the mail each month and as the time goes by these magazines accumulate. These magazines are a great source for reference and also inspiration so it is nice to have them protected and organized so that we can easily access the information. Now, a woodworker can simply purchase a magazine case from the publisher or from a local discount store and be done with it. However, since...
starting to look a bit decent with some stain on it. Just updating my progress…I’m a bit anxious to finish this one
Still need to do the drawer fronts, but the doors are in! And they are kinda snazzy, if I do say so myself. Note, in particular, the grain matching.
