Cocktail table for my wife's room. #2: Top is being mounted

09-27-2012 03:21 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Howdy, I started mounting the table top today. It occurs to me, in hindsight, that I may have caused myself a lot of frustration. I’ll find out soon enough when I try to place the diamonds. Be that as it may, it’s turning out pretty well but you can still tell that a rookie is doing the work. I was able to use the warped pieces but now I have a few pieces that are slightly higher than others. I just bought myself more hours of sanding. I’ve also got a few gaps. A f...

New "Antique" Lathe Stand #3: stand up

07-25-2010 01:28 AM by scottb | 3 comments »

The second piece of old fashioned book binding equipment (nearly 2” thick Maple!) going into this project: Removing metal hardware before running through the tablesaw. The mortising for it, done almost entirely by drill. threaded metal rods run through both ends, cross grain. for rigidity? structural integrity? aid in glue up? Didja guess #2? Ok, so I knew this one had a split in it, but I didn’t know how bad. Luckily the plan was to rip off both edges, lik...

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 ...

Inspired or Insane

07-11-2007 05:01 AM by che | 9 comments »

After mulling around a bit thinking about the music box I want to build and cursing the lack of tools in my shop (specifically the Rikon 10-325 I not so secretly lust after) I was remembered a post I read and was inspired, http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/woodspar/blog/1370 or stricken by a very severe dementia. I’m not sure. I plan on building a music box with a frame and panel top. The frame will likely be curly maple and the panel will be a black walnut crotch. The crotch I have i...

Walnut Dining Room and Foyer #2: Foyer Table - bottom completed and top glued up

08-22-2014 01:10 AM by elbarneso | 2 comments »

Just a few pics and progress from this past week – I sprayed a few coats of GF pre-cat satin urethane on the base of the foyer table and glued that up. The finish turned out pretty good, although I had to resand the bottom shelf due to some bad sanding marks that I rushed and didn’t see the first time. I don’t have very good lighting in my garage, but I bought a cheap clip lamp and used it during the re-sand – I really should have bought one of these sooner, although t...

Tool thoughts #42: Rediscovered a Lumber Source in CNY (central NY)

02-17-2013 12:25 AM by NedB | 3 comments »

I just made a happy re-discovery of a ‘local’ sawyer whom I’ve dealt with in the past. For those in the central NY area, chime in here if you’re looking for some decent hardwoods, Zach is the sawyer, and he has maple, ash, elm and hickory in 4/4 up through 10/4 at $1/bf. It may need some seasoning, but hey, that’s what lumber racks are for, right? I’m planning on making a run up his way in about a month, month and a half from now, just about the time that m...

The Maloof Library Series #11: Triplets!

05-07-2012 01:25 PM by ScottMorrison | 3 comments »

Hello fellow sawdust-heads. Three lovely ladies ready to ship out in a few days. Thought you might like to see them. There are more pictures on my Facebook page. The two outer rockers are walnut, and the middle one is Tiger Maple (the quilting is awesome, even though the picture doesn’t show it). Cheers!

Murphy wall bed Build

10-02-2009 01:56 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Today I’ll be building a pair of murphy wall with a bookcase separating them. This will be the version I call the Hudson Bay. It is our simple Alpine with some molding added to the face. I use a stock molding found at a local hardwood supplier. They will be built unfinished in maple. The customer will finish it themselves. The bookcase I plan on making it a little shorter and a little shallower in depth then the two murphy beds. I am doing this so that the crown molding will w...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #687: Stage 1 Complete

04-30-2012 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

I had a decent working day yesterday. I was happy that things went the way they did, and having a good attitude about what I was doing made all the difference in the world. I think in writing yesterday about not being afraid to fail, I did well in convincing myself that it would be OK if things didn’t work out for me the first time. Also, hearing from others that I have so much admiration and respect for and seeing that they go through the same thing made me feel like it wasn’t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1412: My All Season Tree - Halloween, 2014

09-30-2014 12:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Many of you who read know about my little "all season" tree. It is a tall and slim tree that I keep up all year round and change the decorations to coordinate with the season. Even though we live in a small place, it is nice to have such a wonderful little tree to brighten things up and decorate with different things. Since Keith and I are always designing new ornaments and things, I never run short of things to adorn it with. In fact – I don't think I have ever had it loo...
