Adirondack Chair & Table #8: The Final Installement: The Adirondack Side-Table

04-01-2010 04:44 AM by jcontract | 2 comments »

I’ve been working for a few weeks now, a few hours a night getting the side-table built. It wasn’t that difficult to do. But it was fun nonetheless. Assembling the base of the table. The legs go on with glue and screws from the back. The most difficult part of the whole assembly was getting the spacing correct. The plans called for a distance of 18 1/4”. So it was a matter of getting the 2 ends of the top to run parallel at 18 1/4” while maintaining th...

Humidor in progress

03-17-2010 07:29 AM by dakremer | 3 comments »

this is a humidor I’m making for my brother. It is going to be a travel humidor. I figure it’ll fit about 5-10, depending on the size of the cigars! The end pieces are solid mahogany and the middle is solid (some kind of) birch. I still have A LOT of work to do on it…I’m going to round over the corners, and I’m still thinking of ways to do the inside so its unique and isn’t so boring – the one pictured here is one of my ideas – its two diffe...

Which mahogany to choose

03-17-2010 03:55 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 2 comments »

I’m getting ready for a total kitchen cabinet remodel and I want to make my cabinets out of Mahogany. i was going to get African Mahogany because of cost and availability but I have heard a lot of talk about how it finishes poorly compared to the American Mahogany species. I’m looking for anyone who can make a testament to the quality of African mahogany either way. Thanks!

Shop Stuff. #7: Wood Gloat

03-11-2010 04:30 AM by rsmith71 | 7 comments »

Just had to add my own free wood gloat. Last fall a friend of a friend decided to clean out his workshop. My friend called me and asked if I was interested. I couldn’t get there fast enough. We loaded up in my truck and hit the road. Let me say first I thought I might get 2 or 3 boards out of this trip but decided what the heck. We get there and talk to the guy and he’s decided he doesn’t have the room for everything he had and we started loading my truck up. And kept loadin...

Shaker Night Stand #10: Fill my eyes ... with that double vision!

03-08-2010 02:29 AM by NBeener | 27 comments »

So … among my 3,000 eye problems is intermittent double vision. But … I don’t think that’s the problem, here. I seek the expert counsel of the venerated and revered LumberJocks: IS IT just me …. ?? Tenons are better the second time around!! Incidentally, I occasionally do more than just clean my shop :-) Cheers, All!

My first Lazy Suzan.

03-05-2010 05:47 AM by Lupo | 3 comments »

I am building this for a friend Over Seas. Her name is Ines so that is what this is named also. The ” Lazy Ines ”. It ought to be fun to finish. I do not have a thickness planer so it has been all Hand Planers. Also the edges are being rounded out by hand with a rasp. You really appreciate the work when you have limited tools!!!!

Another great pile of wood

03-03-2010 06:20 AM by Karson | 24 comments »

I made the trek to my wood supplier that gives us free scrap wood for our Toy Making outreach at the Mason Dixon Woodworkers. These toys are given to underprivledged children at Christmas time. We usually make about 1300 or so toys each year. This is my catch from the past week. Approx 200 BD ft of Honduras Mahogany. A lot of it is 10/4 square and 30 to 35” long. I can get all of the wood that is less than 36” long. I’m also going through his cuttoff bin and taking all Sa...

Adirondack Chair & Table #7: First Test Runs....The Seat Goes On

03-01-2010 05:38 AM by jcontract | 5 comments »

After finishing the saw rehab, it was back to completing the chair. My wife was away for the weekend on an all out scrapbooking extravaganza. So that left me some time to work into the wee hours of the night to complete the chair set slats. First, I cut and fine tuned spacers used to make certain the spces bewteen the slats are identical. I could have tried to do this by eye, or some other inexact technique, but to me the spacing between the slats is a critical element. Hey, it’s my cha...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #5: Laminating Seat Back and Back Rest

02-27-2010 01:03 AM by sras | 7 comments »

Once I have my strips sanded to thickness, I can cut them and get the five pieces I need for gluing. I have enough material for six so I’ll have a strip left over. There are a couple of cases where I ended up with damage on part of a strip and that sixth piece was nice to have. First, I sort my six long strips and find which end I want to have in the final part. I look for color, grain direction and any character that I might want to have on the outer faces. Then I mark for cutting. ...
