Biedermeier/30's Dining Room Table #3: - Almost done

07-01-2014 05:43 PM by Patricelejeune | 1 comment »

I had some more time to work on my table before to be really interrupted by the parcment job. You can see the post related to the parchment table there Top as been veneered with old brown glue, my favorite liquid hide glue, shaped and sanded and I did straighten the edges for a nice clean fit. I have ben playing with steam bending. Russ Filbeck lent us one of his steamer. I used a PVC pipe to dip my cherry moulding in dyed black water to soak them through ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1445: "Winter is Coming"

11-17-2014 02:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I know those are not words that all of us like hearing. But long before Game of Thrones was ever thought of, Keith used to tease me because I used that phrase frequently this time of year as I purchased extra essentials and prepared for the long, cold days ahead when we may not be able to get to the store. Being prepared is important and coming from Chicago, I was no stranger to sudden snow squalls which left the area crippled for sometimes several days. Now living in rural Nova Scotia, I fee...

New Router Table #4: Adding the Base

09-04-2013 02:21 AM by jeffbranch | 4 comments »

Making a mortise with an old drill press. I have said before that an old rickety drill press is better than no drill press at all. In the photo above, I am using my Dad’s old Craftsman bench top drill press to do some deep mortising. This drill press shakes worse than a wet dog; it shakes so much I feel like I need to call someone to help me keep everything in place. I am doing some mild exaggeration here, but in the photo above I am using several clamps while drilling some mortises. Th...

Monticello Lap Desk #3: The Second Class Session

05-13-2012 02:34 AM by jcontract | 0 comments »

Back at PFW it was time to cut and assemble the drawer for the desk. That meant half-blind dovetails at the front of the drawer. Mario imparted some wise advice. Always cut at least 2 dovetails with the same material and to the same thickness as you will use in the project. That’ll give you a good feel for the material and how it will react when you cut the real ones. Great advice. Got to work for the first time on a Moxon vice. This thing was awesome! Allows you work to be right ...

Aurora Night Stand #4: Going Old School...

01-03-2009 07:50 AM by Topapilot | 4 comments »

Well, I found out what was wrong with my mortising set up – the drill bit inside the mortise chisel was bent and causing the chisel to jam. I tried another chisel that had never been used and it worked, so I went old-school. I started and ended the mortising with those whatchamacallits, chisels! Thats it! I marked out the mortises with a pencil, then went around the perimeter with a chisel. I only went deep enough to cut the surface fibers, maybe 1/16”+, and got a nice outli...
