mahogany bed

I’m getting closer to the finish but I just noticed my grain direction is heading in different ways with the foot and head board. Also the top is a bit wobbly I may have to add more supports to it

Live in the shop...Creating bandings for Wood Inlay

10-24-2010 07:44 PM by Bob Simmons | 9 comments »

Today we are creating bandings from scratch. We’ve got some ideas for the wood inlay designs so we are ripping on the table saw, sanding on the drum sander, and gluing. At some point we will cut banding segments on the dedicated miter saw and then gluing some more. Plus we will be doing a bit of video shoots for the next release. Feel free to stop by. visit…The Apprentice and The Journeyman ...........Learn more, Experience more!

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...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #8: Mortises and tenons - Making progress!!

09-14-2010 06:46 AM by sras | 8 comments »

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 ...

Fishing Nets Made My Way

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...

Segmented Wood Turning...Staves and Vertical Spacers #1: Let's Build a Fruit Bowl

09-05-2010 07:53 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

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...
