Wine Rack Expedition #3: Dowling and.... more dowling

03-26-2009 07:26 AM by Demowen | 2 comments »

Well, unfortunately there isn’t a whole lot of content to go through for this step since it is pretty much doing the same thing over and over again. I marked out on the legs where I want the rails to go. I had to alter some measurements from the plans since the rails are now 3.5” instead of 4” wide. I wanted to get all of the front and side pieces out of the same board and this was the price I paid. No biggie, will look about the same in the end. So the lines were all...

Why buy it when you can make it! #26: Too many cutting boards...

11-30-2014 01:56 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

We had a slight break in the cold weather in my neck of the woods, so I ducked outdoors to do a bit of sanding of the cutting boards my wife asked me to make as Christmas presents for several of her family members. The router bit I used for my router sled left a bit of a mangled surface on the 3 end-grain cutting boards, so armed with a brand new Ridgid belt sander, I got to work with some cautious sanding. I can’t say I’m too experienced with a belt sander, so I am rather pro...

Finishing Info for the Woodworker #3: Finishes and their Compatibility

01-07-2015 04:38 AM by pjones46 | 1 comment »

Finishes and their Compatibility Almost any finishing product can be applied over any other as long as the “other finish” is dry and the product you’re brushing doesn’t dissolve and smudge the existing. For example: Let’s for arguments sake you are not using spray equipment and that you have made up and applied a water based PVA blotch controller as describe in my previous article Preventing Blotching Using A Wash Coat 1 to a cherry surface. You then apply a water-soluble dye for col...

Flat Screen Table Build #5: Finishing.....

01-11-2015 02:37 PM by Brodan | 4 comments »

After gluing up the cabinet and then the legs/skirt assembly, I screwed in the corner braces and clamped the top to the cabinet. I cut a rabbit inside the cabinet and used oak “L” brackets to clamp the top, which will allow for seasonal movement of the top. I screwed the cabinet to the bottom plate. To allow for seasonal movement of the bottom, I elongated the holes. I then used “l” brackets and rabbits to attach the bottom assembly (legs/skirt) to the cabinet ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1482: Better Late than Never

01-24-2015 02:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I am checking in a little late today because yesterday the day got away from me and I was doing the final editing and proofreading on my SLD489 Layered Heart Damask Box with Monogram pattern. I actually finished everything up early this morning, and I sent all the orders out from last night for the patterns. If you ordered one and I missed you, please let me know and I will get it to you right away. :)We finished our site update yesterday. And in addition to the pattern for the above desig...

Workbench Build #36: Back at it.. Fitting the Tool Well...

08-05-2013 08:13 PM by Airframer | 12 comments »

Well, now that I am done distracting myself with mallets, saw benches and cleaning it is time to get back at this. I have set an arbitrary deadline of September(ish) for completion of this bench so it is time to ramp things up a bit. We left off with a partially fitted end cap in the last blog. A bit more progress has been made there. I have the Dovetails cut and “fitted (will require more plugs and shims.. perhaps by the 4th dovetail I will have this figured out?) As before I ...

My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #7: Carving Roses wasn't very Rosie!

01-22-2008 10:06 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 11 comments »

The first Rose handle I carved, didn’t give me any trouble, but I wasn’t satisfied with the light color of the sapwood. So I decided to go with the darker heartwood. I cut some rose patterns for a couple of Roses. I started carving a couple of flower petals, & snap! the flower broke off of the 3/8” stem. So I decided to go with a 1/2’’ stem, & the same thing happened, SNAP! The burly heartwood is kind of brittle. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...
