Hand Tool Journey #20: New Mallet No. 2

07-30-2013 08:09 PM by Airframer | 3 comments »

Spent the night in with the family last night. Which was fine because I wanted to let the glue set a bit longer before doing anything that might stress the joints. So no progress made last night but got started early this morning. Took the head out of the clamps and cleaned up and flattened the top and bottom. Then using the string trick I figured out the angle for the faces to be cut at. Scored some nice deep lines for the cuts and got to cuttin’ Then turned my att...

The Pickering project #1: The Pickering project #1:

11-22-2014 12:26 PM by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 3 comments »

Day one on my new commission, a 6 to 8 seat live edge dining table. The log is about 75”, the 3 slabs are 2 3/4” thick, and vary in thickness from 28 to 39” wide. With the amount of cut off branch growth we expected some interesting figure, but all the spault was a complete surprise! Pieces will be sent to the kiln for 5 to 6 weeks next Saturday, along with a load of holly a friend of mine and I have acquired. In future posts I will share the working drawings for the table d...

Fighting The Evils of Cancer! #1: Preparing the Battle Field

04-12-2010 02:25 AM by Dukegijoe | 3 comments »

Like many of my fellow lumberjocks I worked on the Guild Build from the Wood Whisperer last month. Unfortunately it is still a work in progress (hey, 2 kids under 3 and a wife have a way of monopolizing your free time); but I thought that I would post some of the pictures and progress I made last month, then finish it off when the final steps were done. For those of you that don’t know, the Guild over at Http:// built Shaker tables last month in an effor to su...

The Wine Rack (I can't tell if my pics will appear or not!!)

09-19-2009 03:04 AM by NBeener | 3 comments »

Got an old book of DIY woodworking plans, from a used book store. First thing I flipped to was a wine rack—coincidentally, something we’ve talked about buying for our kitchen/living room. This one called out white oak, with darker walnut plugs (to conceal exposed dowel holes, and used to provide a decorative contrast). I got a chance to pick up two new hole saws, a doweling jig (neat!), my first Forstner bit, a couple of strap clamps, and a bunch of beautiful wood. Not...

Pennsylvania Spice Box for Mom #5: Finishing external details on case

05-25-2012 05:02 PM by SPHinTampa | 3 comments »

In the last blog entry, I completed the interior elements. Now I will turn to the completion of the external elements of the case. Where I started. Where I finished. During this session I completed the following: 1. Create base molding2. Nail base molding3. Create crown molding3. Glue crown molding on4. Add filler strip5. Attach feet I started with the base molding from the plan. It is sized to just cover the lower dovetails. I made a mistake and cut the rabbit at 90 d...

Cocktail table for my wife's room. #2: Top is being mounted

09-27-2012 03:21 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Howdy, I started mounting the table top today. It occurs to me, in hindsight, that I may have caused myself a lot of frustration. I’ll find out soon enough when I try to place the diamonds. Be that as it may, it’s turning out pretty well but you can still tell that a rookie is doing the work. I was able to use the warped pieces but now I have a few pieces that are slightly higher than others. I just bought myself more hours of sanding. I’ve also got a few gaps. A f...

Garage Tool Cabinets #1: Size and Materials Planning

07-31-2013 03:05 PM by Parsimonia | 3 comments »

So after making a large workshop upper cabinet, and then a glass door cabinet, I decided to start making more cabinets to store garden tools in the garage. While I’m at it, I decided to make two, one for long handled tools, and another with shelves for smaller stuff. I made the previous cabinets with maple, and it seems like a waste of money to make a garden tool cabinet out of relatively expensive wood, but hey, if I’m going to all the trouble, it might as well look good. I al...

Videos #1: CNC Turning Laminated Maple

05-26-2012 01:19 AM by tyskkvinna | 3 comments »

I know there is a lot of curiosity in how I make things, so I thought I would start sharing some of the videos I shoot about them. They’re just little things shot on my iPhone, but it gives you a pretty solid idea. :) This is part of a larger project that I am doing. I needed a little post/pedestal to glue onto another thing, so I took a scrap piece of maple, cut it in half and glued it to itself. Here I am turning from a 4.5” square into a 3.5” puck. It is somewhere in...
