Roubo Workbench Build #3: Looking for advice on vices - Also, progress with the top

423 days ago by Willeh | 8 comments »

While i’ve been progressing quite well with the top, i’ve been fighting myself on vice options. Unfortunately, I need to figure out what kind of end vice i’m going to go with before I finish gluing up the top so I don’t limit my options. I’ve glued up the back half of the top so far, and I really need to figure out the end/tail vice before i really go any further. Ive been fighting back and forth between two options: 1. Using something like a face vice o...

Starting My Business #3: and I am milling, and I am milling, milling, and milling

1069 days ago by ChrisCrafts | 9 comments »

In my never ending quest to make 250 end grain cutting boards, I find myself milling quite a bit of stock. Attempting to keep some sort of order in the manufacturing process. I have cut most the boards down to 1”- 3” strips anywhere from 2’-4’ long. I then glue like strips together. So far I have 6 of laminated boards. Later on, once I laminated all of my stock, I will begin the crosscutting and re-laminating process. Then all the boards will take a dip in Walnut oi...

Pink Maple?

718 days ago by thecarpentershands | 6 comments »

The other day i was driving along and saw a few big logs hangin out on the side of the road. From the road it looked like black locust but when i finally went and picked it up with my truck, it looked like some sort of apple wood. The wood was like a pinkish, red color. I was very excited to open the logs up and get some slabs out of it as I have been looking to make a natural edge bench. Upon slabbing the wood and finally planing it, I found that the wood had a grain reminiscent of maple. Th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1104: Damask Plaque Patterns are Posted on My Site

331 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Today’s post will be fairly brief. I need to get to it and write and send out the newsletter from our site today announcing the new patterns. I had a really good response from people yesterday and many are anxious to get their copies. I am really happy about this, as I also really like the new designs. I think they are both fun to cut and nice to look at once they are done. The four new patterns for the Damask Silhouette plaques are as follows: SLD434 Songbirds: SLD435 Ki...

"Birds Eye Maple" --by RusticWoodArt

2591 days ago by frank | 7 comments »

Birds Eye Maple ....well just a short blog story today as I’m heading out soon to get my butt in high gear. I’ve been keeping busy around the shop lately with the many projects of woodworking as come my way, a counter top in process, some pieces, (actually three) of furniture and then there’s that three legged piece of maple that I have put up on the third floor of the barn-shop that has started whispering my name for attention. Why just yesterday there I was up on the...

The Craftsman's Path #51: Modern Shaker Table - Making the Top

2021 days ago by Mark Mazzo | 2 comments »

With the legs complete I moved on to milling and gluing up the stock for the table top. I also used a simple trammel jig to mark the arcs on the ends of the top and cut them on the band saw. Check out the post on my blog for the details and photos of the process. Thanks for reading!

Dresser #3: Getting There

1527 days ago by AFChip | 2 comments »

So I’ve managed to get a good bit done since the last post. All the drawers have faces now, and I’ve even been able to start finishing some of the drawers. I’ve attached the face frame to the dresser also. This consisted of a basic round over trim piece from the local Lowes cut, glued and tacked into place. Simple, but it adds a nice touch. I’ve also got this thing on it’s bun feet finally, and it’s all starting to come together. Next big project is...

Chessboard #2: Drawers and Posts

1238 days ago by CartersWhittling | 2 comments »

Today I got off work early and the weather was +10 so I spent some time in the garage. I dovetailed the maple drawer and got the second walnut corner post turned. I had also glued up the 8 board stripes last night so I did some flattening to the board to prepare it to be crosscut. The dovetails turned out good on one side, but on the other I have some gaps so I might put some shims in at glue up. I have the drawer bottoms planed to thickness but still have not decided for sure if the drawers ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #541: The Waiting Game

950 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

We all have heard the saying “good things take time” and I am discovering how true that is while finishing my latest project. Yesterday I spent the bulk of my time doing the final sanding and applying mineral oil to the many pieces for my calendar project. As you saw from yesterday’s post, there really were a lot of pieces and it was a slow process. I actually made three sets of overlay pieces for the project. Two were of 1/8” maple and one was of 1/8” Ba...
