Now I could have finished the roof, I could have finished the back wall, but… I’m always having a bit difficulty with switching between the woodwork and the work with cement and stones. So, when the first section of the roof was on, I decided to make the front door on the second floor. Now, it’s not a door that you can go in and out, it’s about 3,5 meters above the street. I just wanted to have the possibility to load bigger items from the street. Now it might n...
I ask a couple of my woodworking friends to help me talk to you about some common woodworking joinery. Woodworking joinery is the method of joining two pieces of wood together to create a more complex item. Woodworking Joinery is the one thing we as woodworkers need to know and this video talks about 4 common woodworking joints that you are most likely to use in your projects. In this video you will learn about the following joints Half Lap Joints – Presented by Jay Bates Jays...
This week’s Project is a horizontal Murphy Bed. The bed I built is a twin size bed using the Create-A-Bed Hardware kit from Rockler Woodworking and Supply. The finished look of the bed can be trimmed and finished to match your homes decor, really the limit on the final look is only limited by your imagination. These videos just tell you about the use of the hardware kit and the general construction of the project. I hope you enjoy it.
I don’t know what the bigger job was, making the wooden wall for the second floor, or getting the timber up to the building sight. Our street was made hundreds of years ago when the only way of transport was a donkey or in the case of being rich and noble, a horse. Even though the Templar Knights were thinking big, they never could have imagined huge trucks, cranes and bulldozers. I had to go and pick up the wood myself at my supplier and it took 4 rides with my (Iveco) van to get from ...
It’s that time of year once again. The 2nd Annual Whirligig Wars event is approaching! Woodworkers around the globe are beginning to construct their whimsical whirligigs with the hope of winning one of the great prizes this year. Whirligig Wars came to life last year when woodworkers across the globe battled it out and waged a war in wood. Due to it’s success Whirligig Wars has gained recognition from woodworkers and woodworking enthusiasts across the globe. In the Summer...
Ok, so I got a little distracted with getting my hand plane assortment ready for work. I still have a couple more to go and another on the way but as it sits now I have a fully functional selection of old Stanleys that should get me wherever I need to go with them. Now as I sit here preparing to cut my first ever dovetails (seriously have never done this before) I need to get my saws in order. I have been putting off sharpening these for a while now and it is time I gave them some a...
Quartersawn oak blanks are cut to 14” long and 1 5/8” thick. The upper crest rails are 3” wide and the lower rails are 2 ½” wide. I chose to construct the chair with floating tenons so that I could mill and cut all of the rails to the exact same length. A bench-top mortising machine is used to make the mortises for the upper and lower crest rails. The 3/8” chisel is set exactly parallel to the machine’s fence, then an auxiliary fence is installed and shimmed to the proper angle required. Sto...
A friend at my church made me an offer: ”I’ll give you some wood if you’ll build something with it for the youth auction at the church” He made the offer several weeks ago, but I didn’t get around to picking up the wood until last Sunday! That gives me just under 4 weeks to take the wood, figure out a project, build it and finish it. That should be plenty of time, but my projects typically take months or years ! After pondering my choices, I picked these...
The transformation from rough swan lumber into finished moldings. With a few tips and tricks a long the way. and part two
A few weeks have passed since i initially glued up the counter tops. Now it was time to start building the base and tying the cabinets together. My dad offered to come over for a day and help with anything i needed and i couldn’t say no to that! We planed and ripped all the boards to give it a new fresh edge and dress things up a little. First we attached a cleat to each side of the cabinet and used some lag bolts for a secure hold.We initially thought about using plywood to tether ...
