Machinist Toolbox #3: Carcass parts ready for some groovin'

12-12-2010 08:25 PM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

Yesterday was such a beautiful day, wasn’t too cold, and the sky was blue (today is cloudy and rainy). I was fortunate enough to be able to use the day for some woodworking. I am at the point where I usually run into trouble. I have a tendency to want to work on the joinery and the problem is that I usually do that before I have all the parts ready leaving me with some parts that go together, but still require work to get the rest of it as well. This time around I decided to get all ...

Greene & Greene Inspired Crib #4: One Panel Done!

10-18-2011 05:01 AM by Alan S | 2 comments »

Since last time, I finished fitting all the slats and the center panel: I started out by fitting the tenons in the bottom rail. Then I marked at the top how long and at what angle the top tenons should be. After much thought and planning, I finally was able to glue the whole thing up. Here’s the result! What do you think?!? There’s still a lot to do, but it’s coming along nicely! Alan

Morris inspired chair #11: Invest in foam rubber futures

07-10-2007 07:32 AM by Bob Babcock | 6 comments »

Wow…..is foam rubber expensive. We picked up the foam last week but have been waiting for the zippers to arrive (had to order online). The seat is 5” of high density foam wraped in 1” of low density foam and then batting. The back is just 4” of low density foam wrapped in batting. They feel pretty comfortable. The seat is a little stiff but should break in quickly with me on it. Hopefully Suzanne will get the cushions done this week. We bought two materials. Niether...

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 had 6 mahogany chunks for lack of a better description. i was told they were african crotch mahogany from a near by wood working store. i had four of hem milled to 5/4 pieces and 8/4 pieces. i still have two chunks left. they measure roughly 48×15x10. i had thought about selling them but at the same time keeping them for down the road projects. i could use the room in my shop plus the money to buy some new equipment. but at the same time they arent hurting me by keeping them. i...

TV Stand #6: Finally gluing up the top

09-02-2011 03:19 AM by Angela | 1 comment »

I last left off where my boards for the top where seriously warped. I also was waiting for my new jointer. I received my new Powermatic Jointer and I love it. I wish I knew how to use it better but it will come in time. Jointing ProblemOne question I wondered about it when I tried to flatten a board. I jointed just one side of the board until it was flat. The only problem was to get the board flat the jointer removed so much wood that I wasn’t able to use the board because it became to...

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #3: Finishing #1 - Starting #2

08-13-2007 04:19 AM by Bob Babcock | 6 comments »

I started #2 today. This one I’m shooting for better performance. I’m only using five 1/4” laminations this time instead of six and only one is mahogany instead of two. No lyptus in the handle this time either. The difference in weight is very noticable already. Carving out the shark for the inlay Dry fit. The splines for the blade. I book matched the front and rear blade faces. The front is going to be cedar, the rear mahogany. The light cedar front will have a ...

When it was finished, the client decided to introduce a change: to divide the desk.

09-14-2009 10:47 PM by xylosapiens | 2 comments »

The client decided to make a change: he need an access to the desk’s inside, when her products are exposed on the counter. After thinking about the possible solutions and having to keep the structural solidity, I decided that easiest alternative was to cut the desk board. One of the questions was how to make the holes for the axes in such a small space. I found only one solution: to tear off the central piece for drilling, so that after glueing, the piece could looked like before manipu...

Just for Fun... #5: Strong to the finish

09-14-2009 11:38 PM by littlecope | 4 comments »

There hasn’t been a lot to report on this lately. We’re talking finishing here and it’s pretty droll stuff.If you recall we left off hereNow my Dad had a great suggestion regarding the prominent “stripes” on the lid, which are, of course, merely leftover stain in the hollows of the contour. He said, “You ought to paint them. Paint them black. Shiny black..” And so I didI actually painted them again the following morning after this. The first coat just...
