Firewood Plane #2: Not so alternative plane blanks

10-31-2011 06:13 AM by tr33surg3on | 0 comments »

I decided to abandon the firewood plane blank after I realized it was lodgepole pine. I’m playing it safe by using a Maple turning blank. It was about 2×2x20. I cut it down to two 10” segments and glued them together to make a 2×4x10 blank. It will be a little wider than necessary, but I’ll have plenty of room for error when I rip the sides. It also turned out the blade on my thrift-store #5 is more pitted than I had hoped. I sharpened it as best I cou...

Simple Writing Desk #1: Working my way through

04-18-2012 10:04 PM by Rick | 1 comment »

I started out with a bunch of sycamore. It’s been sitting in my garage now for a year. I finally started to make use of it. A sample with one end shellac, one end Arm-R-Seal My wife is in need of a desk, but we wanted something simple. She said she didn’t even want a drawer. So we measured, and started on a couple boards. The boards had some twist. I spent a lot of time getting that out. I tried ripping one board on the bandsaw, then jointing one of the rips. I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #778: Timing Is Everything

08-03-2012 11:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Sometimes the best thing you can do for a project is nothing. But that can also be the most difficult part of the process when you are anxious to see the outcome, or are on a schedule to get it finished. There have been many times when I have been guilty of rushing through something that I am making for one reason or another and I come to regret it. But as I get older (and supposedly wiser) and have more experience, I find that rushing through part of the process to finish is more often t...

Cutting Board Finish

11-11-2012 03:59 AM by thecarpentershands | 7 comments »

I recently tried my hand at an end grain cutting board with some scraps lying around. I also have been commissioned to build a butcher block style cutting board. As these are the first cutting boards I’ve ever done, I don’t know what exactly what I should do for the finish. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to finish cutting boards? Thanks and God bless!

Guess Who's Back In The Shop?? Me!!

11-27-2010 12:16 AM by matt garcia | 23 comments »

Man it really feels good to get out in the cool weather, and continue where I left off last year before my surgury! Well I cleaned up a little bit, soaked my WWII to remove the walnut pitch from the last woodworking project, and got back to work. I didn’t know if I would ever be able to stand again. When I got out of the hospital, and went back to work it was hard to stand, even for a few minutes. See the surgeons remove the vein from your right leg in order to do the bypass. My ...

Alex's Coffee Table Build Off #2: The complete base

11-12-2014 01:33 AM by Nitreug | 0 comments »

In my last post, I covered the rationale for my design and how I made several cuts mostly on the bandsaw to make one base. I will now discuss in greater detail how I built the rest of the base including the legs and stretcher and how I did the glue up. I left off with this base: Although I made a very similar drawing on my second base none of the line remained after I made a few cuts on the bandsaw. Since I deviated a little bit from the plan, I decided to use the actual first base to c...

Kitchen Cabinets #7: Whoops

03-09-2009 05:10 PM by Dan Lyke | 0 comments »

With Yardbirds going out of business, I bought a bunch of stuff to run some new electrical (although even with the discount their wire was no cheaper than other sources, so I had to pick and choose), and in the process of picking conduit paths through the garage I cleaned out the shop. So yesterday I milled a whole bunch of wood into door frames. I’d picked up a bunch of eastern hard maple off of Craigslist, random sizes, about 5’; lengths, so I took the ones closest to my door...
