Morris style glider #3: Cutlist 2.0

09-18-2014 08:48 PM by Orange008 | 0 comments »

After putting together my cutlist, I called up the lumber yard that I am getting the material from. They emailed me the latest price list for all their products. Seeing that you are charged extra for boards wider than 8”, I decided that going back to the cutlist to reorganize the pieces on 8” wide may benefit me. I had too much room left over on 9” wide pieces anyway, so fitting them onto 8” worked well (below), and I actually had less waste. I didn’t even hav...

Cherry Curved-Front Desk #3: Making the back rail and clamping frame together

09-08-2014 12:28 AM by CharlesA | 0 comments »

Turns out the next step is making the back rail, clamping it to the glued up sides, and then clamping in a spacer in order to cut out the dovetails for the top, front rail. The back rail was relatively straightforward. I joint with a plane. It is a great feeling when you get those long shavings at the end of the process. I also like the impossibly thin shavings you get when using the smoother on the face. Clamped together and ready for the next step.

Cherry Curved-Front Desk #2: SLOWLY finishing the legs, first glue-up

09-07-2014 01:13 AM by CharlesA | 0 comments »

This build is going slow because each piece is complicated and because the steps are a bit different than the usual fair. I also ran into some complications with my mortiser bits. But the first step of the build is now done. I marked the mortises carefully And then cut them on the mortiser. Cleaned up the mortises with a chisel—done with the mortises. I cut the double curves on the front legs (back legs were already done) on the bandsaw. With this build, the instructions ...

Mini hand tool cabinet #2: Hybrid milling

09-03-2014 06:14 PM by JSOvens | 1 comment »

With the planning more or less completed, it was time to decide on what wood to use. I recently acquired quite a bit of hardwood lumber, using up my lumber budget for about a year or so, so I was quite set on using what I had, rather than buying wood specifically for this project. The problem is, I didn’t really have any that were suitably sized for this project (in width or thickness). Furthermore, since I am making this cabinet small, there is a really possibility it will be replaced ...

Cherry Curved-Front Desk #1: Design Down, Getting Legs Right

09-01-2014 05:24 PM by CharlesA | 5 comments »

This is my second project progress blog. I am a hobbyist who likes to try to build things beyond my skill set. I started this desk in the spring, then got waylaid by the live edge table I needed to finish. Today I started again. I am making a Curved-Front Desk from the Fine Woodworking plan. The first step is to do the legs. I got ahead of myself in the spring and did the shaping of the legs before I did the mortises. By the end of the week, I will have 8-10 double-curved cherry leg...

Tool Box #2: lid building

08-17-2014 01:47 AM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

and panel raisin’ Got the Pine panel out of the clamps. Hand planed to as flat as I could get in. Time to raise a panel. Same way as the side panels. Mark out a “stop line” about 1” in from the edge. Take a #4 sized handplane, set it a bit deep. Go at a diagonal to the grain. Plane until you reach the stop line, check the remainder of the edge for straightness. As you get close to the finish line, back off the depth of cut. I do the end grain ...
