Lee and Shelley's Wet Bar #5: Drawer and Carcase Construction

04-03-2014 02:19 AM by MT_Stringer | 1 comment »

Onward and upward. I made the drawers out of hard maple. The front of the drawers were made using a Porter cable dovetail jig to produce half blind dovetails. The back of the drawers was simple butt joint construction, using glue and brad nails. The rear piece was ripped short so it could be installed, then the bottom slid in. I anchored the bottom with several short staples across the back. This method works out pretty well for me. Cutting the dovetails on the front only reduces produc...

Harmonica case #4: How to grout wood

09-01-2011 04:49 PM by gurnie | 0 comments »

I realized I never explained how I got the grout “look” to work with the harmonica case, so i thought i’d take the time to post photos to show you the process. Here’s an image of the wood, pre-grouted. if you look at my last blog entry, you can see how I was able to chisle away the wood for the brick pattern. In this photo you can see the tightbond 3 glue (which dries darker than regular tightbond), a collection of maple dust, a cup, tooth picks, and kabob s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1113: New Halloween Key Ornaments

08-26-2013 11:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I had a very productive day yesterday. After being slowed down last week by not feeling my best, I can’t begin to tell you how good it felt just to feel like myself again and really get some things accomplished. For a change, I not only met the goals that I had set for myself for the day, but I exceeded them. (Geeze – do you think I set them too low??) I had wanted to finish up the drawing on my latest project. With the mornings becoming cooler each day, I can feel the inevi...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #36: Prepping Wood and Shellac for Rain

09-29-2008 02:55 AM by frank | 5 comments »

Prepping Wood and Shellac for Rain I do hope that all reading herein are understanding that I am writing in retrospect….as these writings are running a few days behind where I am today. My life is much too busy to be writing and testing, plus taking photos on a daily basis, so one could say that I am writing from within a time warp as I also must keep in mind that winter is coming. Winter involves putting some machines to sleep and then there is the waking up of those winter machines...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #16: The worst Easter ever

04-06-2015 01:46 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

So, my task today was to cut up a piece of maple I bought the other day to make the gap stop and get it glued up in the clamps and then go over to family for Easter dinner. I set up the band saw and set about resawing the board into two halves. It went fine for the first 3/4 of the board then it was binding the blade and was not tracking straight, and not wanting to cut. I made a couple of adjustments, everything else looked fine in the setup. It just wouldn’t cut and was binding hor...
