Jalen's Davenport desk. #1: Rough Milling the Lumber.

1266 days ago by Jeff Waggoner | 1 comment »

I have been excited about doing a woodworking projects and my brother and sister both placed in the student competition last year. You must be 13 years old by December 31st to enter the competition for that year. I turned 13 on December 27th meeting the deadline by just four days. I knew I wanted to do a desk of some kind so my dad and I started researching desk online. The problem is the competition restricts all projects two 36×36 x 36 so many desk would not qualify. In researc...

52 Weeks #45: A Pen Type of Weekend

975 days ago by clieb91 | 1 comment »

Yep put together and made a number of pens this weekend starting on Friday after work. But before I get into that I mentioned last week that I had some glue ups drying in the shop for some shop items. I know nothing spectacular, just some 2×4s with holes drilled with a forstner bit. But oh so handy; the small one is attached via pocket holes to my mobile workstation by the drill press. My hope is not to lose the toothbrush and pencils as often. The larger one is a bit more advance...

In The Beginning #3: And We're Off

1509 days ago by Crushgroovin | 1 comment »

Never one to let the moss grow beneath my feet and un-dauntingly ambitious I started my next project tonight. I owe my wife big time for being 1) Amazing! 2) being very encouraging throughout the venture into woodworking. 3) oh and putting up with me for the 8 years I spent in an alcoholic stupor. She is going to culinary school right now to become a pastry chef. Our first project was a decorative cutting board we gave her for Mother’s Day. The next day she mentioned she would...

Game Calls #2: Scratch Box Turkey Calls

509 days ago by ghost5 | 1 comment »

After posting a few of these neat little calls I thought some other folks might like to know how to make them. They are an easy project and another way to use some of that scrap wood. The easiest way to make a scratch box is to have a dedicated mortiser set up with a 1/2”cutter but since I don’t have one here is how I do it. If you do have one you can quickly see how to use it to accomplish what I am doing. I start with a 1 & 5/8”“x4” piece 1/2” t...

Printer Stand #1: Design stage

1841 days ago by Greg Wurst | 1 comment »

There was a printer stand in the latest Wood magazine I received, and it inspired me to design one for our ink jet printer. I wanted it to match the existing furniture, which is a maple laminated particle board: So, over to Sketchup where I draw some designs and once I was happy I added the joinery: It’s all 1/2” material except for the drawer bottom. The drawer just slides in the opening with no hardware. I’m debating on whether to make it a...

Music Stand Project #2: Building & Finishing

727 days ago by WTTN16 | 1 comment »

I ended up changing a bunch of things in the design and it turned out pretty well. The project is entirely maple with two small pieces of wenge to cover up screw holes and end grain. I used chest lid hardware to adjust the angle of the top. It turned out pretty well. I finished it with 1 coat of Bullseye Sealcoat and then two coats of Minwax Paste Finishing Wax. It won the state competition and took it to the national competition but didnt place. I was pretty happy with it.

Chi Omega Dorm Room #5: Back from Camp

1858 days ago by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

I am back from camp and ready to see what was completed. I left with most parts cut out and at least on example of the part that were to be built. I save a copy of my notes online so that I could give instructions from camp if needed. Click on the pictures to see all them. (Good luck with deciphering them). Did have as much done as I would have liked to but that is what I expected. Nothing got totally completed, there was a lot of skipping around. Here are some pictures: For mor...

Karate belt display #3: The Angle of the Dangle

1627 days ago by WoodshopJoe | 1 comment »

Well it was now time to start making some sawdust, hopefully something would come of it in the end. I started by selecting a board that was about 7” wide to allow for a 4 1/4” and a 2 3/8” rip. Then starting at the beginning of the plan I transferred the board lengths to the piece and cut them to length allowing for an extra inch for adjustment. For the shorter pieces, I left them attached to a longer piece until I cut the dado slot to receive the inset. I numbered all...
