Some of the blades, router bits and some shaper bits , I will be keeping for my self but, to be albe to buy more I have to sale items I don’t normally use or if there is way more of an item or group of items than I can use myself. This is one of those time. ...

Mahogany Table #1: A victim of table abuse

2432 days ago by johnnybwood | 7 comments »

This project is a great example of the following old adage: “No good deed goes unpunished.” A while back I was at church on Sunday morning. During coffee hour my wife was saying things like “You remember John, don’t you?” while I was talking with a few people. A rather subtle approach, I admit, but it got me thinking. Maybe I’d better do something to offset the somewhat irregular nature of my attendance. I noticed that a small side table in the paris...

Blacker House Chair #2: More progress on the Blacker house chair

785 days ago by Jeff Waggoner | 0 comments »

He now has the legs and the upper and lower stretchers done with the exception of shaping the top of the back legs. That can’t be done until we fit the crest rail. We worked on it for 12 hrs on Saturday and he cut the indent in the feet and shaped the tappers. To cut the tappers we had to make three different jigs and six different setups for all the different shapes. I had see in a book how to shape the tappers with a stationary sander but that was with square legs and on...

847 days ago by MrMeasureTwice | 10 comments »

Quick post here – 0400 comes awfully early… Here is my rough drawing of how I will lay out my shop. NOTES: ShopVac will be under the bench ShopSmith is questionable at this point, but it’s the only jointer I have right now, so it stays for now Brown rectangles with thick black border are workbenches Restricted area is immovable, lost space The purple area is the lazy susan that will hold the 4 tools as noted If you’ve got ideas, recommendations or ...

The chalkboard is birch plywood primed and 3 coats of chalkboard paint. And it is finished with Tung oil Varnish

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #6: Finding shop time in a busy schedule -or- Making slats & cutting pieces

1468 days ago by sras | 10 comments »

The next step in this project is making the curved slats for the back of the stool. The process is the same as for the curved parts with a couple exceptions. First the pieces for each set of slats are cut from two blocks. These blocks were next to each other when cut from the large stock. Instead of marking with a saw cut as I did last time, I used a permanent marker. By angling one stripe across both blocks, I am able to keep the strips in order. The total number of stripes tells me w...

Greene inspired Night Stand #18: Making Drawers

2075 days ago by ChicoWoodnut | 18 comments »

I have been building the drawers. Here is a jpg of the model. I started with some layout. Then I cut the fingers with a jig I made. I was left with this. I ran a rabbett down the drawer side. The drawer side fingers were left proud. I pillowed them with sandpaper. More Pillowing I was left with this.A glueup. I didn’t get a picture but I ran a dado on the sides for the backs to sit in and another all around for the drawer bottom. Here it is wit...

Work in progress

1824 days ago by onehitwonder | 11 comments »

I began working on this in high school, but had to rush to finish in spring of senior year. I started with a Nakashima design for ideas then ran with my own vision (with a little guidance from my teacher). The entire piece was crafted by hand (with a little cheating here and there). As soon as I can gain access to a wood shop, I will do some touch-up work and finish polishing it. I have come a long way, but it is far from complete. Here is what I have so far… created in just over 2 semester...

Adirondack Chair & Table #1: Intro and Preparing the Back Slats

1577 days ago by jcontract | 7 comments »

I’ve always loved the Adironack Chair. Some of my fondest memories are sitting in one and relaxing with a cold drink, watching the sunset when it’s the perfect temperature, with just a hint of a soft breeze. So when a few years back when my wife and I bought our first house, we needed the perfect Adirondack chair for the backyard. One that was comfortable, but not too low to the ground. One that didn’t feel like you were too reclined. I looked high and low for the perfect...
