The Masters Slave #2: Plan & Design

10-06-2014 08:12 PM by Obed | 1 comment »

Not being the most creative and obviously skilled I have taken up a huge project that I am hoping will make things functional and smooth for every project to come. I recently acquired a Dewalt planer DW 733 and a DW 745 for 350.00 in great condition from a close friend. My hope and plan is to do right by him and use them until they die or I die. The goal a large “L” shaped work station that will house a table saw area, compound miter station, planing section, router station and ...

Building and Octagon Picnic Table Part 1

10-06-2014 05:46 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 1 comment »

This is Part 1 of a new build. How to build an Octagon Picnic Table. For as long as I can remember I wanted to build an Octagon Picnic Table and I looked everywhere for a good design and plan. Well I finally found one that was perfect for my patio. I got this design from Woodcraft Magazines April May issue Volume 10. It was a design and article by Bill Sands. Bill did a great job with this article and made it very easy to follow along. He built his table out of cedar and wow did it look grea...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #27: Pipe Clamps!

09-19-2014 02:12 AM by PhilBello | 7 comments »

Our second winter of the year is definitely here, just as warm, but plenty of storms! So the Kiosk roof is on hold now, probably until November, when we are back to summer again. In the mean time, all woodwork came to a halt a little over a week ago, with the arrival of a new family member, a four legged one, we wanted a companion for our schnauzer, so took on a rescue dog, that had been abused, the first three days we thought it was the biggest mistake we had made, he is only a small coll...

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.

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #26: Project or Blog?

09-02-2014 11:39 PM by PhilBello | 11 comments »

I debated where to put this, then decided to stick with my Blog! I had a makeshift lumber rack made out of an old prison bunk-bed frame, it did it’s job, but it took up too much space, then last week I watched Jay Bates from Jays Custom Creations, construct a simple lumber rack made from 2×4s and metal conduit on YouTube, and that spurred me on to build a new rack. I hitched up the trailer and went off to Homecenter, bought a stack of 2×4s and some other timber for othe...

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...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #25: Main Project on hold!

08-28-2014 02:10 PM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

It appears that our beloved President Santos has given us duff information, a couple of months ago, we were warned to expect El NiƱo, nine months of dry arrid weather, the last week has seen the return of the rainy season, and that is not just the odd shower, so I think our second winter of the year has arrived, which is not what I need at the moment. Unless the weather breaks and we have a decent spell, I am going to have to put the kiosko roof replacement on hold, I haven’t got suf...
