Entertainment Center #4: Base, Shelves, and Top

05-24-2011 05:20 AM by Marc | 1 comment »

I’ve got my own site where I like to write about my projects so rather than duplicate them here I’ll just provide a little teaser. If you’d like to read the full post just click here. As promised, I completed the base of the entertainment center this time, along with a couple of other little details. The base is just made up of four corner blocks and four rails screwed together with some pocket screws. The corner blocks were actually pretty easy to make although…

Blanket Chest #1: Design Choice and Lumber Purchase (pictures)

05-21-2011 04:48 AM by HokieMojo | 5 comments »

Well, this will be my 6th active blog. I’m spreading myself a bit thin. My wife and I learned that we are are having another baby in the near future. I decided I want to build something for our latest addition and after a lot of thought, concluded that a toy chest/blanket chest is probably the best choice. It doesn’t need to be done immediately (good since I’ll be busy), it can be used to hold items for the baby, when she is older it can hold toys, and finally it can g...

Improved Workbench #4: Bracing, Tail Vise, and Planning Sled

05-20-2011 06:37 PM by Brian024 | 1 comment »

In this part I cover how I made the braces to insure the top stays flat, and I’ll use a router to cut the groves for the pipes to sit it that make of the main vise. I’ll also make the planning sled for the side. And for those who are wondering, yes I am wearing sandals.

The Maloof Library Series #8: Something for all of you iPad enthusiasts...

05-19-2011 12:28 AM by ScottMorrison | 3 comments »

Hi everyone. My extremely talented wife just wrote a groundbreaking new APP for the iPad. It’s the first of it’s kind for woodworkers, enabling you to play with a 3D rocking chair (and all of the separate parts) right on the iPad. You can order parts, take notes and do lots of other cool stuff including watching come never-before-seen videos right within the APP. I admit it, I am a gadget guy, and this is so much fun to play with it makes it hard to go back to making sawdu...

Workshop Improvements #2: Experience, The Right Tools, & a Little CA

05-17-2011 01:41 AM by ChrisCrafts | 1 comment »

I started this little adventure into Woodworking just over a year ago. It has been quite the God send as an escape from the mind numbing boredom that can result from permanent Disability. In that time I have learned enough to fill an encyclopedia, although I have just scratched the surface in terms of overall knowledge. In the beginning I tried to get it done on the cheap with a mixture of Shopsmith & Harbor Freight Tools. After 6 months of “practicing” the craft I realized...

Jewelry Cabinet #2: Refined SketchUp model and main body pieces ready for clean up and glue.

05-16-2011 09:47 AM by Devin | 5 comments »

It’s been a busy month in the shop.I finally refined my design to the point where I was happy with it. I’ve added a very gentle curve to the outside of the top piece as well as the two side pieces. For the bottom, I shortened the feet to 3/4” and shortened the lower drawer section 2 1/2” tall I’ve used sliding dovetails for all of the joinery for the main section. They will provide me peace of mind if the piece is hung on the wall. First time with slid...

Wood and I….Sculpture ….while walking down the isles of life’s design,i was roiled enough to loose my way on a walk-about,the forest and trees no-longer fed this hunger within,and for days becoming years my dreams died as inaesthetic…. ….that was in-deed the hole i dug until i had no-strength dig deeper,what came next was confronting my dragon and refusing his lies any-more,so i went back to the woods fearing to hope and believe what i might find,what i found was that ...

In this part, I glue up the main portion of the top, that sucker is heavy. I also mill the parts for the legs and stretchers, lay them out and cut the core mortise and tenon joinery.
