Tool cabinet #7: Top mounted tool chest

01-17-2008 08:54 PM by CutNRun | 10 comments »

While it isn’t quite done, I’m about 80% complete with the companion chest to my tool cabinet. The carcase is completed and together, the back panel is done and ready to mount, and the drawers are all cut and dry assembled. I need to finish sand the drawers and glue them togther. Some coats of finish and drawer liners and it will be ready for tools. Should add some bonus shallow drawers to what I have already. The drawer fronts of the chest are figured maple to match the top d...

Work bench #1: Preparing and gluing the top.

02-12-2010 07:41 AM by Dean10 | 11 comments »

Right now I’m making a bench for woodworking this summer. Ive started with the top. To begin, I salvaged wood from my schools old gym floor (Hard rock maple, absolutely freeee, because i have friends in high places :D), next, i took out all the nails and trimmed up the end grain. Then my instructure helped me rip off the grove and tongue joints from the flooring, and I planed it to nice looking peices of lumber. Tonight me and him glued up 1 of 3 segments of the table, which i’ll ...

My New (old) Lathe

11-22-2012 10:29 PM by milbert | 7 comments »

With a lot of free time on my hands these days I decided to move into the dangerous and addictive land of woodturning. I’ve been dying to get a lathe now for about 3 years and trolling Craigslist (I’m on a college budget). I finally found a great deal on an old Craftsman so I decided to jump on it! After I got it, I spent a couple hours cleaning and making sure everything moved like it was supposed to. I ran into one problem which was the motor has a slight bend in the shaf...

I have recently moved and progress on the model boat Sunshine has slowed. When i find my camera i’ll post the pictures of the completed molds mounted and aligned on the strongback. In preperation for actual construction I began researching what types of wood to use. I found out about Jeff at HobbyMill ( on a model ship building forum and he has been a pleasure to work with. He has all kinds of wood you can order in sheets milled to spec or in strips. he is ev...

Building Jewelry Boxes with EZInlays #2: First Cuts for RoseBud

04-30-2013 05:30 AM by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

Started to build the RoseBud inlay that will go on the lid of the Bubinga and Purple Heart jewelry box. For this inlay I am using maple, yellow heart, rosewood, and kauri. Tomorrow I am going to do some sand shading to give the inlay a 3D effect. Should be pretty cool… P.S. The only down side to sand shading is the wood can sometimes stink and yellow heart is one of the worst!!! It is almost as bad as zebra wood… not quite but almost!!! Now that I’m finished with...

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

08-13-2013 11:31 AM 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...

Spalted Maple Sofa Table #2: Milling and Gluing

09-16-2011 06:00 PM by superstretch | 1 comment »

TopThe spalted maple I had was about 5/4 rough. I would have loved to shave off a nice 3/8” or so to get them down to 3/4”, but my band saw was no where near up for the task. Off to the planer we go (after being ripped to width and jointed). LegsSince the boards I had were about 5/4, I couldn’t make the legs the desired 1.5” thick without gluing some together. Since the spalting and grain patterns were so varied, gluing two pieces together looked pretty gross....

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #12: Finish up the leg vise

03-25-2015 02:37 AM by ic3ss | 1 comment »

Had a surprise today, more funds available in the budget than I thought so I went to the lumber yard and got the wood that I needed. Got it all milled up and the front rail is now in the clamps. Due to my clamp shortage, I’ll have to glue up the last leg after I get home from work tomorrow night. But that’s good because it’ll set me up perfect for next weekend’s activities. I picked up a 2 – 5/8” forstner bit for the plastic bearing ring, a 4” fors...
