Part #2 Case and Lid

84 days ago by S4SWWS | 1 comment »

The Sides are S4S Red Oak and the Lid is S4S White Oak with a little character. The lid is a floating panel which I glued up with the box sides and then I cut the lid on the table saw. The bottom is pretty simple, and is made of 1/4 inch oak ply with upholstery leather. Next part is the tray for holding standard sized paper.

Cherry sideboard #1: Uh-oh, the water is deeper then I thought!

85 days ago by SFDCapt | 6 comments »

Ok, so there is no actual water. It’s just a phrase that comes close to describing how I felt trying to figure out my wood needs for this project. Now that the holiday gift projects are behind me now I wanted to start a project that would take a bit of time to complete, but also would push me to improve my skills. One of the books I received as a Christmas gift from my wife was Robert Lang’s “Great Book of Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture”. After flipping th...

mitre jig

85 days ago by dclark1943 | 14 comments »

Recently Big Al, i.e. “Boxguy” posted a jig he had built for cutting accurate mitre joints. I built one this afternoon, and thought I would share my attempt at making the same jig. Total cost for the jig was around $17.00 – - the all in one clamp. The time was 2 1/2 hours. MDF remnants, left over material from other projects, and junk drawer parts finished it to this point. Still have to finish up the stop system, but was anxious to use it today, so will add the stop tom...

Works in Progress #4: Humidor Test Build - Day Three

86 days ago by Jerry | 0 comments »

Starting to look like something now. Still needs a little more sanding and a nice finish before parting the top from the bottom. I had intended to do a fully functional humidor for this test, but I went to Woodcrafters today and found out that Spanish Cedar has skyrocketed, so since this is a test, I will probably make the liner out of some inexpensive wood and just make this a box. The wood is hemlock, and is very cheap, but I chose it because I liked the nice tight straight grain. It ...

The Chicken Coop

92 days ago by mervillehomesteader | 11 comments »

About a year ago I moved onto 5 acres full of nice size fir and cedar trees a lot of trees. We cut down about a half acre for garden and chicken space. From the trees we cut down we got 5000 board feet of one inch and two inch fir timbers (mostly 10inch wide by 10 to 20ft long) and a tonne of one inch cedar planking (averaging about 14inches wide). That’s a lot of wood for one lowly carpenter but I think I will manage. Well first things first. Dig a garden and get the chickens out of...

Land of Nod #1: Roughing it out...

93 days ago by byerbyer | 2 comments »

My college roommate and his wife are expecting their first child this summer, and since I’m a bit disgusted by the quality of store bought furniture (for that prices they ask, anyway), I volunteered to build them a crib… It should also be noted that this is my first “real” furniture project in about 10 years so I thought I’d blog it to have a bit of record of how it all shook out… and so I can look back in a few years and think of all the ways I could have...

Tumbling block cutting board techniques, lessons learned and tips for cutting and assembly

93 days ago by jfk4032 | 8 comments »

After looking through some other blogs here on LJ and watching some Youtube videos I thought that the tumbling block cutting board was something that looked challenging, cool and something I wanted to try. I learned some good ideas from these other blogs and wanted to share some of my experiences having now made three of these, my setbacks and discoveries to better produce these tumbling block patterns. I purchased a Wixey digital angle gauge as it looked like you really needed to be accu...

Education and torment #2: Red Oak Sandpaper Storage cabinet

94 days ago by GeneR | 3 comments »

This cabinet is made from leftover red oak, Luan, birch plywood and plexiglass that I had in my shop. It is approximately 17”T x 7 1/2”W x 6” deep. I would have liked to make it a little taller to handle a couple more shelves and slightly deeper to have been able to recess the back panel. The Box I first sent the oak through the joiner to ensure I had 1 flat square edge. I then cut the board to the proper widths on my table saw then to final lengths on the Miter...
