A Stepback Cupboard build #5: A drawer building day

01-07-2018 12:01 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I got the clamps off, and things laid out… Drawer front fits…I removed the rest of the clamps, and moved the case so I could have a bit more elbow room… Hauled the Pine 1×6 to the shop. Set up to cut a pair of drawer sides. A Disston D-7, 10ppi crosscut. That green can was also needed, today One end was a tad off, used the mitre box to trim it down to match the first one. You would think, that both parts coming from the same board, would be the s...

A Stepback Cupboard build #4: Face frame installed, and other mishaps

01-06-2018 02:13 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, tried to fit the face frame to the front of the case…..wasn’t going to fit….Frame was a hair narrower than the case, and threw the alignment stuff off. Decided to expand the grooves outward a hair, both of them. had to reset the cutter on the Stanley #45,....took out the #12 cutter, and replaced it with the #13… That was all I was going to do..last night…one thing lead to another…tried different ways to hold the frame still, long enough to use th...

A Stepback Cupboard build #3: A face frame gets built

01-04-2018 10:53 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok. I need to build a “face frame” to cover the front edges of the case..ripped down another plank of Ash Bandsaw to rip a couple stiles, about 1-1/2” wide. Jointer plane to remove saw marks, and make the two match each other. Needed three rails.. Mitersaw to cut those to length….ganged all three up.. Shorter boards = shorter planes. Then I needed tenons on both ends of these three.. Didn’t like these wide tenons, so they were trimmed down a...

Ok, been quite busy lately, Holidays, and such. Spent a bit of cash to get about 32bf of Ash, from a friend of mine.. Hauled a few of the 4/4×6” planks to the shop….needed to cut a couple to length, joint the edges, and make a couple panels Hmmm, thought these were flat sawn..until I found the end grain. Quarter sawn Ash.. Used this old saw, to cut a few blanks to length.. Jointed the edges, and checked for any gaps.. Got one side into the clamps̷...

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #3: Leg machining

12-30-2017 02:29 AM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Got a couple more hours in the shop this afternoon, so I started working on the legs. I machined out the intersecting mortises in the leg tops and cut the two sided taper. Then I rebated the short aprons using the same jig I made for the legs. After a short set back of cutting too deeply and having to blank a new short apron, I got the rebates cut to fit snug in the leg mortises. Some final sanding and cutting the cross lap in the aprons and it’s onto the long aprons. I will transition...

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #1: Rough dimensioning, laying out top

12-28-2017 03:16 AM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Found a good deal, at least for my area on some material: 8/4 African Mahogany for $5.99/bd ft, and more curly maple at $6.50/bd ft. After the overwhelming positive response to the previous coffee table build, I decided to make another. Most of my family told me I should try and sell a few pieces to finance my hobby, and a local business that sells furniture expressed interest in my work. This time around I will be keeping track of my time so I have a better idea of what goes into it. Th...

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

Brynn's Desk Build #4: Overview of the build

12-17-2017 09:47 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

This writing desk is one of my favorite builds. Made from cherry, with spaltted maple for the side panels and drawer pulls. The drawer pulls are held in place with walnut posts for a little accent. If you are interested in the build process here is a little build video. I started out milling the legs and cutting them to length. Next, laying out the joinery and drawing in the curve I liked for the legs. It is way easier to cut all the joinery to before cutting the curves. This gives...

Frame saw, maple scraps #1: Parts...

11-09-2017 11:52 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

This may be a short blog….decided to use some of the Maple 1×4s in the scrap pile.. There was a 1×4 about this long….I ripped it right down the center, to make a pair of handle blanks. I had a few old Butcher’s Meat saws just rusting away… This one is the larger one still sitting around. Two others supplied a few parts, and an 18” long saw blade. Drilled a couple holes, bandsaw to rough ly shape each handle…there was a longer 1×4...

IMPORTANT MESSAGE- THE PASSING OF MY FATHER, GLENN

11-07-2017 08:29 AM by holsworthwoodworks | 8 comments »

Good evening everyone! After several weeks of tremendous pain, I, Jennifer Holsworth (Kendrick) and my husband Jacob, have just now gained the strength to let everyone know that my father, Glenn Holsworth, had suddenly and tragically passed away on September 14th, 2017. Since we’ve been dealing with this terrible time on our own (without support from any family members, as it has always been my father, Glenn, myself, my husband and my son since forever) it has been very hard to cl...
