American Hanging Cupboard #2: Stock Preparation - Rough Dimensioning

1727 days ago by Mark D. | 3 comments »

So unfortunately I got carried away actually working rather than documenting the process, but I did snap this photo before I quit for the night. So far I’ve gotten all the face frame pieces cut down to final size and have marked out the tenons on the rails. I also cut a test mortise in some scrap that went through the same milling process so I can test the fit of the tenons as I cut them. The dado stack is in the saw ready to rock. I will begin cutting the joinery tonight(I ho...

A cabinetmaker's workbench (in pine) #1: Planing and glueup of flitches

1742 days ago by TravisCorcoran | 2 comments »

Ordered (5) 18′ long 2×12s. Cut them to half length, yielding (10) 9′ long 2×12s. Ripped each into three equal pieces, yielding (30) 9′ 2×4s. Planed the faces of each, reducing thickness to 1 3/8″. Picked 24 good ones, divided into 4 groups of 6. Started gluing up the four flitches (each will be 8 1/4″ wide x 3 1/2″ thick). Each will be allowed to cure for 24 hours, then will be run through the planer. Then the four bench segments will be glued together. for about $100...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

1743 days ago by OregonBurls | 37 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Milling #1: It begins....

1757 days ago by Broda | 3 comments »

I think I mentioned in my last blog that I love hearing/reading/seeing about wood gloats and also logs to lumber blogs. I haven’t done much in the way of blogs but, better late than never. A few weeks ago, me and dad went wood cutting. I usually come along to look out for fallen trees to take home and stick on the lathe. Lucky I went this particular time.there was a tall skinny, and by that I mean about 20m tall by about 250mm diameter, unidentified tree laying over a track. someone ...

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

1759 days ago by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

Router Table Cabinet

1763 days ago by 559dustdesigns | 26 comments »

This is a router table I’m working on for my shop. I was able to incorporate most the features I needed and plan to use it often. It isn’t finished but most the major parts are in place. I purchased the Incra twin linear, router table top, woodpeckers router lift and the porter cable 7518 motor from Woodpeckers Inc back in 2002 or 2003. Finally, she’s in working order. Since the last post I was able to complete the rear ...

Spring cleaning in Fall still no fun !!!!!!!!

1766 days ago by Built2Last | 2 comments »

A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...
