With the table carcase complete it was time to build and dovetail the drawer. I have a fairly long and detailed post on my blog with the process that I used to do this. Please take a look and let me know your thoughts. Thanks for reading!
I got back into the shop late this evening and got a little more work done. As you can see from the pics the kit (wheels etc) for the truck came in today. I had to recut the carriage piece this evening as it was a bit more narrow than the hood. The next and most important is I had to work out is the difference from the tractor trailer plan and the dump truck plan to get the Hoist Support and Hoist components of the dump truck box aligned to the tractor trailer. I think I have everything worke...
I made a great deal of progress yesterday cutting out the little shamrocks. I had some things to do in the morning and didn’t wind up really starting to set up things until just after lunch, so I got a later start than I intended. Still, I was able to cut out all 15 pieces (double stacked) and at least finish with that for the day. I didn’t get to sanding them and oiling them, but I will be doing that today, as well as cutting out the 15 smaller versions which can be used for p...
RusticallyFlared-AsianInspiration—-a study in the cross cultural texture of ‘wood art’. ....so how proud are you of your underside? I still remember the time I was in a well known and famous gallery owner’s showroom over in the upstate region of … ...., looking at some of the furniture on display. Well next thing I know as I’m down on my hands and knees is a loud display of noise as this person let me know that I was on the verge of being aske...
Well folks, I think it was another productive day in the shop. The objective today was to get all of the parts created, but not necesarrily 100% ready for glue up or finish sanding. Misson accomplished- sort of. The first obstacle was to figure out how I wanted to join the wine glass holder rails. They are positioned horizontally (like a shelf) where all the rest of the rails to this point have been vertical (like a skirt table). I’ve been using a self-centering doweling jig fo...
So I made a decent pair of hinges, but when I placed them on the box, they looked a little big for the application… Well, I can’t enlarge the box very easily… So I guess I’ll just have to “shrink” the hinges!! It’s good that these are versatile, but it took a little extra work to achieve…The center/lid stop part had to have its hole re-sized (in order to become a slip-fit) and I thought it “Stuck out” a little too far… so...
I am trying to get enough wooden ornaments made (by Christmas) to fill my entire tree… these ramblings will tell the story of my journey and wether or not I am successful in my endeavor. The 5 below are in primer and I hope to get them painted soon.
Took a breath, gave the table tops some time, and then took the tape off. Even with some of the lessons learned regarding the mask, there were some places the stain was able to sneak under the over-laps, but some more where it didn’t. Next – I have to put the second part of the stain recipe on the larger base, and tone the smaller base a bit darker. Will probably have that same adjustment on the larger base But overall, they’re coming together. F...
This is the first real HD video I have put out. This video is a much higher quality than any other video I have put out. In this episode I build maple pencil holders. I started out with making the bases which have a round over profile on each side. Then I used my tablesaw to re saw a piece of 3/4 maple to use for the box that sits on the base.
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...
