Veneered Sofa Table #5: Finishing the base

11-18-2011 05:43 AM by SPHinTampa | 0 comments »

Sorry for double post. The picture size was causing problems so I had to split the entry. In the last blog entry, I completed the feet for the sofa table and the joinery to connect them to the legs. In this entry, I will cut the remaining pieces for the base, complete the joinery and glue it up. It will look like this. First step is to create for table apron sides. Since the apron stock was only surfaced and jointed on one side, I rip the apron stock to final width. And cro...

With all these new power tools, why do we still measure in the dark ages?

04-08-2010 08:27 AM by technicallymark | 51 comments »

Quick, which is bigger, 5/16th or 11/32nd? Having trouble? Try this. Which one is bigger 10 or 12? Easy right? I’m all about easy and trying to remember how to convert fractions isn’t really something I want my brain working on with spinning sharp blades around. I’m not sure why we can’t be like the rest of the world and use “metric” for measuring, but it would make life a little easier in the shop. I might be a little biased since I have formal e...

Refurb, Antique Walnut Table #7: It's Mahogany, and it's Done!

02-10-2013 11:13 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 30 comments »

Here’s the top before any of this started. After dis-assembly of the top from the base, jointing the edges, re-gluing, re-attaching, scraping and re-re-re-finishing (thanks again, Andy!), this table got the fifth and final coat of 3-2-1 and is DONE. Now to find a place for it in the house, because it’s too nice to sit in the shop! Thanks for looking.

Temporary Grave Marker #2: The challenges of a commissioned work...

11-12-2007 07:54 PM by Ethan Sincox | 18 comments »

Wait a second… Is it really a commissioned work? Maybe not. I agreed to make the cross, but I decided to not charge them for it (ehhh… it isn’t something I really want to put in my Gallery of Finished Pieces, you know? It’s more like a favor than anything. Ultimately, it comes down to the fact that I would feel weird about charging a friend for this piece. Hey, when its a hobby, you can afford to do that.) In any case, I got hit square in the face with one of ...

2012 School Competition Projects #1: Jalen's Blacker House Chair - Getting started

02-07-2012 11:13 PM by Jeff Waggoner | 0 comments »

My son is doing a project for a school competition and a couple of months ago he came across some photos of the Blacker House chair and fell in love with it. He is a big fan of the Greene and Greene style and is currently reading books on the history of the Greene and Hall brothers. Here’s the problem his project has to be complete in March. We have spent hours searching the web and everything I find is incomplete and very inconsistent. We contacted some people on the web that we kn...

I'm Back!!!

06-07-2012 12:50 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 7 comments »

I have been away recently because I have been so busy on projects lately but I am going to post them right now. The projects are an end grain cutting board made for mahogany and oak, a small stool made entirely from hand tools and a new and improved chisel and screwdriver rack (at least compared to my old one) using my kreg jig i got for my birthday and a great way to store wood in a shed workshop without putting up shelves or losing floor space.

Walnut Sofa Table #1: The Design

01-10-2011 10:00 AM by Thomas Keefe | 0 comments »

I was recently contracted by my wife to design and build a sofa table for our den. This describes the design of the table. As I receive no monetary remuneration for this contract and I live in the house too, I have some design input. However, I was limited to some constraints: (1) Dimensions must be roughly 6’ long and no more than 12” wide; (2) Simple design; and (3) Moderate cost. My goals were to please my customer and try out a new beading plane I recently bought (an old Stanl...

Greene inspired Night Stand #5: Progress

02-15-2008 08:00 AM by ChicoWoodnut | 5 comments »

I figured i would post a quick progress note. I have cut all the tenons for the case and fitted them. Here is a shot of the dry fit. I still need to lay in the dovetailed stretchers on the top. That will be tomorrow. I won’t bore anyone with making tenons. It’s coming along pretty well. I’ll be shaping cloud lifts by Saturday.

Guitar-building #3: Fretting the neck, routing the pocket

03-25-2011 02:41 PM by kenstonge | 8 comments »

After three months of once-a-week woodworking, my Les Paul Jr. project is finally starting to look like a guitar. I spent the first hour of my class installing frets on the guitar’s neck, a process that involves fretwire, a fretting hammer, a few clamps, flush-trimming pliers, some CA glue and a file. The basic process is to cut the fretwire — which had been radiused to 10 inches — for each fret, leaving an extra quarter- to half-inch on either side. Cutting the fretwire Next, I c...
