Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #9: Milling and final dimensioning!

02-16-2011 06:43 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

Well today is day 3, the halfway day again! It was a great day today, managed to fix the error I’d made last day by just swapping two pieces so I’m happy about that. I was concerned that my boards may have twisted between classes but the wood must be well and truly dry and acclimatized and I guess there was not too much stress in the boards so far so good. Managed to final dimension all of the pieces (about 12 of them) and just began figuring out the mortise and tenon joints o...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #591: One More Day

01-23-2012 01:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Well, it wasn’t because of lack of effort that I didn’t finish yesterday. With looking ahead at what I need to accomplish today to finish, I think it was much more my usual nemesis – underestimation – that is to blame. It is funny how I always do this. Perhaps it is because of my optimistic ‘pink cloud’ thinking that I choose to embrace. I really and truly try to be realistic with my time lines, but it is yet to be an ability that I have mastered. I ...

A House Warming Gift #6: Wrapping Up....

04-11-2009 04:30 AM by littlecope | 3 comments »

Well, I got to help with the move itself which took me out of town for a day, and I didn’t have to stare at the still-drying letters all day! :-) When I got back, they were finally dry enough. So, after a good nap yesterday, to rest these old bones, I started by removing the tape and positioning the words on the sign.There’s still a little stick-um left from the tape on the bottom, and that helps after eyeballing them into place. They don’t slip and slide around. Since the w...

New "Antique" Lathe Stand #3: stand up

07-25-2010 01:28 AM by scottb | 3 comments »

The second piece of old fashioned book binding equipment (nearly 2” thick Maple!) going into this project: Removing metal hardware before running through the tablesaw. The mortising for it, done almost entirely by drill. threaded metal rods run through both ends, cross grain. for rigidity? structural integrity? aid in glue up? Didja guess #2? Ok, so I knew this one had a split in it, but I didn’t know how bad. Luckily the plan was to rip off both edges, lik...

Baby Cradle #3: Shaping the bottom

10-29-2009 02:18 PM by Bob Giovannini | 3 comments »

This next step involved shaping the bottom of the base. After scribing a line 2 1/8 inches in, I used a circular saw set to a depth of 7/8 inch. The next time I do something like this I will make the cuts closer together to make removal easier. Then with chisel (ok – for all parents and in-laws reading this, which should be 4 – a nice set of chisels for your son would be a great way to show you care about your soon to be new grandchild :) ) and mallet, I cleared the bottom. I ...

Flat Screen Table Build #6: Finishing

01-16-2015 06:18 PM by Brodan | 3 comments »

With the table assembled I was ready for finishing….or I thought I was. I wanted the finish to match the end tables in our living room, which have a cherry finish. After reading about the difficulties in staining Maple without making it a splotchy mess, I asked for and received some advice from folks here on LJ. Thanks to all! Here is the unfinished table…. I was advised to leave it natural but it would not have matched the other furniture. So the first thing I did was to app...

Workbench #6: Dovetailing Endcaps

10-01-2011 02:40 AM by CartersWhittling | 3 comments »

Hello. Today I’ve been working on endcaps for the shoulder vise. I started by routing the grooves in the spacer block and in the doghole strip for the spacer block. I then squared up the end of each end cap for the shoulder vise and laid out and cut the tail on the long end cap with the bandsaw. I then transfered the tail and cut the pins with a jig on the bandsaw. And after a little fitting… I then put the rod through the top and clamped the spacer bl...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #4: More gluing

03-03-2015 02:58 AM by ic3ss | 3 comments »

Since I began woodworking almost five years ago and slowly building my shop, one of the things that has proven difficult for me to prioritize was buying clamps. We all know the old saying “You can’t have enough clamps”. And while this is true, the projects that I have mostly done didn’t require very many clamps. And the larger projects I did, I just made do with what I had. This bench project has spurred me to start buying parallel clamps, but at $40 + a pop and with s...

Necklace Box #1: The first couple months

01-28-2011 06:15 PM by superstretch | 3 comments »

In September, I started coming up with ideas for my wife’s Christmas present. The short of it is—I haven’t finished it yet. Fortunately, it was a minor part of all that I was getting/making her, so she didn’t go without this Christmas. Part of my problem is that I’m still a greenhorn and purpleheart is a jerk to work with. Tearout, checking, and pitting is something I’ve had to deal with non-stop. For the past two weeks, my shop (no heating) has been bel...
