Building my first humidor

06-28-2016 02:44 AM by Drew Gregory | 2 comments »

A friend asked me to make a humidor for him after seeing some of my other projects. Having never made one, of course I said yes.Started off with a simple rabbit joint for the box frame. Added some maple trim on the corners and brought it down flush with my no.5 1/2 Added a walnut ply in a rabbit to the top and bottom Next up the top and bottom caps at 3/8” thick This walnut crotch is from a 4/4 chunk that I book matched to give it a subtle nod to a tobacc...

Saw Making #3: Gents Saw Conversion Part 2

06-23-2016 11:05 PM by AgentTwitch | 3 comments »

Part two of the Gents Saw Conversion series. This may be a bit verbose, so I apologize ahead of time. After all, we are just drilling holes… The next step in the conversion process is drilling holes. A lot of holes. You will need a variety of forstner and twist drill bits to complete these steps. With your template affixed to your stock, use an awl to create reference points on all of the indicated locations, or use the spur on the forstner to create a divot. Apply moderate pr...

Maple & Cherry Nightstands #2: Nearly Finished

06-16-2016 05:15 AM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

I have been spending my time in the shop to complete these nightstands instead of entering updates in my blog. Today I took the glued up drawer boxes and fitted them to their respective nightstand. I decided to cut dovetails for the sides where it fastens to the drawer front. I decided to go this way instead of cutting half-blind dovetails into the cherry drawer fronts. However, I made the cherry drawer fronts to match exactly the size of the poplar lumber I fitted with hand planes to t...

Paduak & Maple vase #3: Finished Turning

06-16-2016 02:58 AM by Julian | 4 comments »

Haven’t worked on this project for over a week. Finished turning and now I need to seal the woodbefore I sand. The paduak sanding dust will “bleed” onto the maple if not sealed properly.

Addendum to "Arty" my articulated friend

05-30-2016 02:48 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 6 comments »

This little blog is to supplement my project labelled ’Meet “Arty” my little articulated friend.’ which should have been or will be “projected” shortly. A brief word about the author…. I am currently chair ridden due to a sprained ankle so I can only channel my “talents” to typographic mistakes rather than woodworking ones and thereby inundate LJ with my verbal diarrhea. As the “Arty” project briefly discusses “nuts”, th...

Turning the top portion

05-22-2016 02:08 AM by Julian | 1 comment »

I started turning the top half of the vase. After the outside was rough turned, I turned the inside. The wall thickness is almost 1/2” thick. This will leave me enough wood to shape the outside after I glue the two halves together.

Pipe Making #1: Introduction

05-18-2016 04:03 PM by MadMark | 1 comment »

Pipe making requires: Table saw Drill press (several bits) Band saw 4” Stationary Belt sander Oscillating Spindle Sander 1” belt sander 8” disc sander ROS sanding @ 120 & 240 Hand sand with sanding sponge At this point the pipe is ready for finishing. ...

Saw Making #2: Gents Saw Conversion Part 1

05-14-2016 07:12 PM by AgentTwitch | 1 comment »

There has been a lot of interest in building tools from scratch, rehabbing tools that needed some love, or repurposing a tool so that it might have more potential or beauty. I have decided to chronicle a few saw builds in these categories in the hope that it might inspire someone to give it a try that was otherwise too nervous to begin the journey on their own. For this series, I am going to do a write up on re-purposing an inexpensive gents saw into a western style dovetail saw. This idea...

Curved Front End Table #6: Pulls, Finish and Final Assembly

05-14-2016 01:04 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

This is the final video in this series. Before final assembly, I finish the piece with shellac and Waterlox for the cherry, and water based poly for the maple parts. I also show how I made the custom pulls for the doors and the drawer from ebony and maple. I show how I hide the magnetic catches for the doors so they are almost invisible. Then it’s on to the task of installing them correctly on the curved surfaces. The rest of the interior pieces get installed, the top and back get...
