Bathroom Vanity Commision #1: Concept, Milling, and Legs

103 days ago by emetric | 0 comments »

I started a commission for a custom bath vanity a few months ago. I am going to try to blog the process in as much detail as I can remember for anyone that would like to follow along. The project is not quite finished yet and I had been meaning to start the blog ages ago but I guess better late than never. Here goes. Ok so the concept was to build an open style furniture vanity unlike your cabinet type units. So I came up with a concept as shown below modeled in sketch up. It was origi...

What to do when the wind chill is -53C! Mollegabet long bow?

106 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 6 comments »

Just before Christmas we had a warm spell pushed on by an Alberta Clipper it was about 4 degrees Celsius when normally it is -15 or thereabouts. The last several days we’ve seen -38 with -53 windchills…I love winter but even that is a bit much to be out and about in. So what does any sane lumberjock do when it is -15 in the shop with the wind saying there is no hope of you heating your shop to something where you can actually dare turn on the flourescents in the shop (for you wa...

112 days ago by Jerry | 6 comments »

I was going to build a humidor for my brother in law, Raul, for Christmas, but at the last minute, I decided to hold off and consult with him to find out his specific desires. Good thing I did, now I’m armed with knowledge, a lot of great new tools to help me facilitate the task, two of which he bought me for Christmas. First this lovely Veritas dovetail guide and this great addition to my router plane, an inlay cutter head Just got back from Woodcrafters with some lovely ...

Education and torment #1: Canary wood Box

123 days ago by GeneR | 0 comments »

The box is 4” square and made from canary wood and walnut, with a birdseye maple and walnut top. This started as an idea for the wifes Christmas present and grew to a little monster. I first decided on the box size being determined buy the length and thickness of the piece of canary wood. the piece was about 28 in long 4 1/2” wide and 1/2” thick so 4” square gave me some screw up room. At this time I figured I would use a 1/4” piece of plywood for the bo...

Krager Woodworking jigs #5: The MRM-V4-1.1 is alive and well

125 days ago by Dan Krager | 1 comment »

I finished building the kit router mill I purchased from Mark Sternberg (Mark55). I am so impressed with it’s versatility and ease of setup and use. It is trivial to cut long parallel slots in 3/4” Baltic birch, pieces for my workbench accessories, post #8543. There are more details in my personal blog I’m just at a loss for more words right now!DanK

oak box #10: coat of wet finish

133 days ago by Dan'um Style | 6 comments »

Sanded this one to 150 grit and figured a good wet coat of lacquer might bring out the grain a bit. The rosewood and turquoise together for the photo. Will glue last. The turquoise is from eBay China. Fun stuff.

Pochade Box in progress #3: Pallette, trim and oil

140 days ago by Jon1094 | 4 comments »

Yesterday I completed the combination pallete and wet canvase holder. It is constucted out of birch plywood with oak inserts for holding the wet canvases. The pallete is finished with two coats of BLO. It is shown out of the box with an inserted canvase and inside the box with the pallete in view. I trimmed the drawers with walnut and put two coats of Danish oil on the box. I’ll let the oil dry for three or four days and then finish with satin wipe on polyurethane. ...

Shuffling (Everyday I'm) #3: Short amount

145 days ago by T. D. Reid | 0 comments »

I got about an hour in the shop today; enough time square of the bottom ends of the legs, drawer backs and sides as well as cut out six drawer fronts to the night stands. The really big thing that I did was get down of the shelf the Leigh Dove tail jig where it has been collecting dust. I have never used it and for some reason I am scared to death of that thing. The unknown sucks! I brought the whole damn thing into the house and tomorrow morning while I’m waiting for the family to wake...
