My first Lazy Suzan.

03-05-2010 05:47 AM by Lupo | 3 comments »

I am building this for a friend Over Seas. Her name is Ines so that is what this is named also. The ” Lazy Ines ”. It ought to be fun to finish. I do not have a thickness planer so it has been all Hand Planers. Also the edges are being rounded out by hand with a rasp. You really appreciate the work when you have limited tools!!!!

First Shop #5: Bench, Chisels and First Project

01-07-2008 03:01 AM by YooperCasey | 3 comments »

Last time I laid out my equipment purchase plans. No progress on purchases though I have decided on the Ridgid TS3650 contractor saw. I see the Woodworking show is coming to Milwaukee in February and that is only 5 hours south for me, so I may see what kind of deal I can snag there on a table saw. I’ve spent the last few evenings working on my core skills. Marking out, cutting, fitting and basically getting used to how certain things behave. This includes trying out my new Bosch CS20...

Twins! #6: It's finally together!

03-26-2012 03:01 AM by Andy123 | 3 comments »

Well, today was the day where I got it together. It still needs mattress support, but I can bang that out in an hour. I had my dad, the girls’ “Papa,” help me out. Over the course of about two two-hour sessions we did a lot. We had to mark and drill for the dowel pins in the rail sections. I made a quick jig out of a piece of 1.5 inch x 3/4 inch maple scrap and two small pieces of scrap plywood. It matched the thickness of the rails sections and it had the plywood section...

mini roubo #2: progress pics to date

03-14-2012 05:20 PM by kaaahl | 3 comments »

I thought I would just catch up on some pics of my progress so far. In the back of my mind, I am hoping to build a workbench that will last for 100 years—something solid and substantial. At the same time, I am doing it on a grad school budget. So those two things are mostly incompatible but we will see how close we get. This is my first time building a project with hardwood and the first workbench I have ever built. I am building it for my father for a belated Christmas gift (I couldn&#...

Workbench #7: Top Almost Done

10-04-2011 07:09 PM by CartersWhittling | 3 comments »

Hello. I am now almost done the bench top. The tailvise still needs to be made and I need to glue the shoulder vise together, but the majority of work is done. Since my last post I finished the splines for the shoulder vise and tapped the nut for the vise, and cut the detail out. This is a 2 1/2” diamter nut with 2 tpi. I am making a video of the process of tapping the nut. I also finished the splines for the end caps and drilling the holes for the bolts. The bolts and splines ...

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

The Best of 'Wood Art" #4: "Evolution and 'Wood Art' in the Process" --by RusticWoodArt

11-14-2007 02:52 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Evolution and ‘Wood Art’ in the Process ”Show me an artist, who has not had to hack his own way through the cluttered groundwork of those who came before and I will show you one who does not know yet their beginning to ending.” ....and so I’m taking some time out, to write some more notes and thoughts here, as I sift through those cascading files within my mind, looking for ‘original idea’….for the ”Upcoming Awards Event” Category: Not...
