Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #10: Can you cheat on a router plane?

1287 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

I feel so disgusted with myself, just three weeks ago I was on here publicly declaring my involvement with a router plane, now the despicable creature that I am my attention has turned to a mortising attachment for the drill press… And wow do I like the mortising attachment; I brought my mortising chisel, gooseneck chisel and my trusty red oak mallet to class today figuring I would be spending my time chiseling out the mortises for the cross members to my stool. Ryan stopped by and ...

Cherry sideboard #5: Carcass and drawers

163 days ago by SFDCapt | 2 comments »

Well it has been a few weeks since any update on this project. Between work schedule, family and, kidney stones I got a little behind. Anyway here is the latest on the Stickley sideboard. I managed to get the two side panels made and glued to the legs, as we saw in the last installment of this blog. Then I used some birch plywood to make the back and bottom of the drawer area. I went with the plywood for two reasons. First being the stability and second the ease of use. These two pie...

Jewelry Case Build #1: Rough Cutting Parts

128 days ago by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

I decided to build, what I think is, a nice jewelry case for my Niece’s birthday this summer. The case is Walnut with Bird’s Eye Maple for drawers and accents. There are some secondary 1/8” panels that will be either Baltic Birch or hardboard. Plans are from an older issue of Wood magazine. Here’s what it should look like when complete: Yesterday I cut everything but the hardboard to rough size. Then I dadoed out 10 tiny rails and stiles for half lap ...

Jewelry Case Build #10: Installing Doors, Final Sanding, Applying Finish

59 days ago by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

I’m so close to finishing this little project. I looked back at the date on the beginning of this blog series and it’s nearly 70 days ago! Today I fussed with the little doors, getting them aligned as best as I can. There must be some trick to this that I’m missing, if anyone knows, please let me know! I had applied a coat of Boiled Linseed Oil a while ago so once the assembly was complete, I sanded everything to 360 grit. The fine sanding dust mixed with the BLO m...

and then it becomes....... #2: behind closed doors

2126 days ago by kolwdwrkr | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since this blog started. My mind has been full of so many projects, most of which were rash decisions to start. When I wrote the original part of this I mentioned the materials and that I would start the project the next day. Well I did cut a chunk of maple and it made it’s way from the shop to my dining room table. The table has become my carving bench, this way I can spend time with the future owner to this project who happens to be my girlfriend. The exci...

"wild cherry sideboard"

2388 days ago by cowboy | 2 comments »

Several people have asked a few questions so I thought I’s tell a little about this piece.This was a spec piece that I wanted to take to a show.The cherry came from a board I selected from a pile of 1,000 bd ft of curly cherry and was obviously one of the wowie,zowie boards.It’s obviously a version of a very old design tha’s been around for years.Truthfully I don’t do that anymore as I only use my own designs and have gotten into a different type of thing,yet similiar....

Walnut Dining Room and Foyer #1: Project Description / First Status

14 days ago by elbarneso | 2 comments »

I plan to use this blog to track my progress on a number of furniture pieces going in our dining/foyer area for our home that we purchased about 1 year ago. Our old home did not have a separate dining room, so we had no furniture to go in this room. I decided to build my own pieces to fill this space, as I have been doing a lot of woodworking over the past year and feel that confident (enough) that I have the skills, time, and vision to complete this. Here is a list of the pieces in the set a...
