Printer Stand #2: So, uh, it's done now.

08-19-2009 03:55 AM by Greg Wurst | 2 comments »

Okay, I didn’t update this while I was building it as I planned. So, I’ll just describe what I went through on this build. I tried several new things on this build; such as resawing stock to size and edge-gluing panels. I got to use my new tools and discovered how often you can trip a breaker with a drum sander that draws 15 amps on a 15 amp circuit. I also reminded myself not to back-out of a stopped dado cut on the table saw. I still have the remnants of a large bruis...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #3: Starting on the interior

03-28-2014 10:09 PM by johnstoneb | 2 comments »

First thing to go in the interior is the plane till. I’m using 1/4” birch plywood supported by 3/4” fir plywood. The till supports will be glued and screwed in along with the upper shelf (this will give some added support to the back when mounting on the wall). Everything else will be screwed in so it is will be easy to modify or change. Laying out the planes. Supports glued in. Till in and separators installed Lower insert glued up and fit. This will provide...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1475: Busy with "Business"

01-13-2015 01:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was one of those crazy/busy days that seemed to be over before it began. It seemed like the every day business tasks (answering emails, filling orders, talking to customers) filled the majority of the time. Before I knew it, it was getting dark and I was running out of steam.  I am not at all complaining about this, as I realize it is part of having a business that is successful, but I am afraid it doesn't make for much interesting blog reading for you. So I decided to show...

Finishing #1: Blotch Control

03-20-2016 07:24 PM by OSU55 | 2 comments »

Blotching is uneven coloring on the substrate, and wood is the substrate I am discussing here. There are many ways to change the look of wood – dyes, dye stain, pigment stain, and variations of both (paint, glazes, and pigment only stains primarily sit on top of the wood and obscure it some or completely, and are not relevant to this discussion). I will simply refer to using all of these as coloring the wood, since the best method to control all of them is the same. I will discuss readi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #443: Making Good Progress

08-27-2011 01:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I must start by saying that yesterday was a very productive day. I actually made a great deal of progress in my drawings and I am happy with the results so far. As usual, I am not as far as I anticipated, but I think that I will deal with only thing at a time for now. The important thing is that the designs look nice and that people are able to cut them. I am working on a set of songbird ornaments that are really quite cool. I suppose that they could be used for Christmas, but they cou...

Southwest end tables #6: On the Border

09-22-2013 09:24 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 2 comments »

Howdy, I got a few hours of work in yesterday so I have a little progress to show. As promised, I’m providing more details about my third and final table of the Southwest series. I ripped up some American Walnut and Curly maple to one inch widths. I then cut up 40 pieces of Walnut to 3 inches. That is were I stopped with the precuts. ( I don’t have a joiner and I get variances on my rip cuts of 1/64th because I don’t always meet the fence with precision.) First thin...

Wormy soft maple rocker ( Hal Taylor version ) #9: Lot's of sanding, Glueing the headrest and mounting rockers / shaping rockers

03-10-2010 02:48 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 2 comments »

By the end of these pictures I’m siting in a rocking chair, that rocks and is about 95% complete! So I sanded to 320 grit everywhere that it would be hard to once the back supports were installed for good, as well as the supports them selves. Then glued the head rest using some clamps to keep it in line and using the screws as clamps, you remove 2 of the screws once dry. I then turned her over, the chairs that is and drilled my holes for the rockers and attached, proceeded to s...

Segmented Stave Bowl #3: Day Three - Finally Turning

01-09-2013 10:35 PM by TheDane | 2 comments »

The blank dried overnight, so it is time to pull the tape off, install the Cole Jaws on my chuck, and mount the glued-up blank. After tooling off the end of the blank (full disclosure: I use used a carbide R2 cutter to get the end of the blank close to flat), I used a piece of plywood with adhesive back sandpaper to true it up. Next, I cut a mortise in the end of the blank to accept a tenon on the bottom. This mortise is a proud 3/16” deep. The bottom of the mortise needs to be as...

Custom Cabinet Construction #4: Where planes soar in a modern shop

05-23-2013 02:00 AM by rhett | 2 comments »

As of late, I have been helping a local cabinet maker get caught up on some work. Nothing fantastic, basic kitchen and bath cabinetry. Spending a few hours a week, building boxes in my shop while he works on the doors/drawers down the hill. Perfect opportunity for extra income to help get the planes flying. It’s also an excellent opportunity to document where old technology still wins in some parts of the modern shop. Let me show you two of the bigger steps in basic cabinetry and...
