Shelves For My Fishing Room

12-13-2015 11:51 AM by PeteCollin | 0 comments »

Hello All, I have a room dedicated to keeping my fly tying desk and all of my fishing accouterments. It had gotten very untidy in there so I made some sturdy shelves to organize things. I made a video of the process. I invite you to a tour of my man-cave! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nn9HrLaFfvo

Shop Remodel #18: Rinse and Repeat

12-11-2015 09:31 PM by bearkatwood | 8 comments »

In the summer 1978 issue of FWW, Tage Frid wrote about tool cabinets.“Why bother making a tool cabinet when a crate with shelves nailed in would hold the tools? I believe if a person wants to make a living as a woodworker and furniture designer, a well-designed and executed tool cabinet is very important. It’s a pleasure to have a beautiful tool cabinet, where the tools are properly arranged and easy to find. And when a potential customer comes into the shop and sees a nice cabinet, half the ...

Shop Remodel #17: Blue tape to the rescue

12-11-2015 12:52 AM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

So like I said yesterday, I goofed up and made my panel openings larger than my panel. I looked back through the stock I had left over and it was too thin to use so I needed to rely on off-cuts to patch my mistakes. Blue tape to the rescue. I cut out the over-sized shapes that would go into the door panel and used scraps to fill in the empty spots. I traced the outline of the openings onto the curly maple panel and then used calipers to oversize it and sribe a ne...

Toy building #5: The Concrete Pump - The boom

12-08-2015 03:38 PM by johnstoneb | 4 comments »

It’s time to get serious and finish this. The boom will make or break this build. I drew this up on Sketchup and animated it everything bends properly and seems to have the clearance needed. The boom is a little complex The first three sections only have to fold out 180 degrees. The 4th section has to fold around 245 degrees and the fifth section has to go 210 degrees. There are some linkages that have to be made for hydraulic cylinder clearance. The 3rd section has an offset so ...

Toy building #4: The Concrete Pump basic truck

12-07-2015 03:41 PM by johnstoneb | 6 comments »

About the end of August I decided I had better get started on building something or would have nothing for Christmas. I started the layout and cutting material for the build. I had resawed a bunch of maple for drawers on my toolbox build so had quite a bit of maple about 5/16 thick that I planed down to 1/4” and cut up some walnut. I was just getting ready to start glueup when a friend called and wanted to know if I wanted to run the Main Salmon. That was a no brainer of course I wa...

Toy building #3: The Concrete Pump

12-06-2015 03:11 PM by johnstoneb | 5 comments »

I have built all of the toys in Wood mag. construction series for my grandson. Last spring while visiting my daughter she wanted to know what toy I was going to build next. I told her none I was through. Somehow concrete pump came up in the conversation. My grandson got told to ask me to build him a pump truck. I told him he needed to talk to santa. His response (typical 4 year old) was santa build plastic toys, grandpa makes them from wood. I came home with a project and no real idea h...

Bent Lamination Pulls Process And Results

12-04-2015 05:09 PM by dewoodwork | 2 comments »

Several months ago I shared a design idea for bent lamination dresser pulls. I have some process and results photos to share. I begin by creating templates, bending form and shop sawn veneers of cherry and curly maple. The veneers are glued up using weldwood plastic resin glue and a vacuum press. The laminations are scraped, sanded and jointed on one edge. I created a curved support jig for cross cutting the bent laminations. It comes in handy for scraping and ...

wrapping things up

12-04-2015 04:23 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

And maybe some finish on this table? Went out and bought a few supplies today…..a pint of gloss Poly, a brush for it, and pads for the table’s feet.. Pads for the feet? Yep, I try to add these things to the tables I make. It helps save the ends of the legs, and it saves the flooring. Just simple nail in things. I just center them in each leg. A few whacks with a hammer to drive them home. Before I did this little chore, I had to make six plugs. Have a Veritas ...

Shop Remodel #9: Look Ma, I made a square.

12-02-2015 01:42 AM by bearkatwood | 6 comments »

It is only Tuesday and I am tired. I have been feeling under the weather lately, but I made some decent progress today. I put the saw till aside for now and will get back to it when I am ready to carve the next piece as well in the interest of efficiency. I worked up a piece of Paruvian Walnut that had been sitting in the back of the shop for the case top and bottom of the tool cabinet. I chose to do it next as I wait for my bench hardware to arrive. I could have definitely used a moxon vise ...

Banquette build....my first furniture attempt #3: My third child is stained and ready for protection

12-01-2015 05:57 AM by Woodchuck4 | 0 comments »

I call this my third child because as I’m nearing the finish line with this we have had two children, my wife quit her job to stay home with the kids, and I’ve gone through a job change (with promotion). With all that has gone on this poor project has had more off time than on, but now I am so close to the finish line I can taste it. Since the last post I got all of the final little cuts and finishes buttoned up. I was still struggling with the stain but finally found...
