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...

I bought some small woodworking toys for my son one Christmas and when we were putting things together he made a comment that he would like his own workbench someday. This got the ol hamster whel a turning and I did some research into so ideas i could use to make him one. SOme blood sweat and one broken toe later He got one made just for him. He is also a huge Baltimore Orioles Fan as u can tell.

Small Shop Adventures #1: Small shop adventures.

08-22-2014 08:28 PM by BrockF | 4 comments »

The construction of the new garage last fall gave me a clean slate for setting up my small shop. The lone survivor in terms of shop furniture from that leaky, damp mess was my workbench. It survived several months in public storage and the trip back and forth. The top is solid and heavy and I don’t like to waste. It reminded me of how far I have come in my wood working and how much more I still have to learn. I scrapped the base but kept the top, thinking about how best to ...

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 ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #22: Now for the serious stuff!

08-11-2014 02:41 AM by PhilBello | 2 comments »

I have been full of good intentions, but something always seems to crop up to stop the bigger projects getting under way, however I think I am clear to get started on rebuilding the kiosko / gazebo. It was my intention to get under way last week, but we had to have a couple of Mango trees removed, one at the front and another at the back of the house, for fruit trees they were big, taller than the house, and that was a worry, because I didn’t want any damage done to the house whilst fel...

The Board, Pt. ll

07-20-2014 06:22 PM by Gene Howe | 22 comments »

Well, after two power outages that caused the loss of the last two attempts, I think I’ve got this “save” thing down. We left off last time with a admonition to make a detailed plan of the proposed final project for which the board we are about to make will be used. The next step is to select the lumber with which to make the board. This is a major step. First the species is to be determined. MDF is out! As is plywood. Rose wood is nice and so is bird’s eye maple...
