Architrave molding

365 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

I’ve been remodeling the house and thought I’d just post a few pictures of how I make my architrave moldings. I don’t know how they are really made. This is just a solution I came up with with the bits I had in the drawer. It starts off with four parts that I sandwich together. The top two parts are made with a simple ogee bit, the cove is made with a raised panel bit, and the bottom part is just a thin strip of wood. Along with that I made some fluted molding for the sides....

Texas Star #1: Learning the 2D Texas Star

378 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 5 comments »

Howdy,Earlier today I was trying to learn a simple way to make a Texas Star. My neighbor wants to inlay a star on a table and we were both rather perplexed. I should have searched through the forum topics instead of the projects. I found a few cool posts about it. But it was too late. We were already making firewood out of reclaimed pine. I managed to make the prototype as the sun was setting. Ok – Here is what I have. You need to cut 18 degree angles down the length of...

Bedside table, from old barn siding

381 days ago by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Had a few pieces of old barn siding in the shop, needing a project to use them in. Wife wanted a small table for beside the bed. Ok, need to find some leg stock. Found a 2×10 maybe twenty inches long. Ripped it into four legs. and planed all the saw marks away. Stashed them away for awhile. Had some Double Dutch 4” barn siding to mill down. Most were split almost right down the middle, and the few that weren’t were cupped badly. Reduced the wide planks ...

Build a Steam Box

390 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 8 comments »

Recently I purchased a Steam Bending Kit from Rockler Woodworking and Hardware so I could try out some Steam Bending. Bending wood is something I have never tried before and is out of my comfort zone. I wanted to dive into this area of woodworking and challenge myself as well as learn something new. So of the various forms of wood bending (Laminated Bending, Milled Bending, Steam Bending) I chose steam bending to be my first attempt. The kit I purchased included the reservoir, hose, and so...

New Yankee Miter Bench Vs. Utimate Tool Stand #3: Finally Cutting Wood

390 days ago by scarpenter002 | 1 comment »

Well, finally time to advance this blog. It has been more than 4 years ago when I created the last entry on this blog. I was out of the country on business for more than 3 years, causing my shop to be mothballed. Most recently work has been eating into my weekend time. Today I finally started cutting wood on my Miter Bench. After a full morning with my tracksaw and table saw, I had a nice stack of wood, all the 3/4 plywood pieces are ready to go: I spent early afternoon ...

Both classes will be taught by Mike Pekovich of Fine Woodworking Magazine. I’m excited about the opportunity to add to my skills and make...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #12: Growth, Learning how to sell, and my First Business Photoshoot!

398 days ago by Ethan Harris | 7 comments »

Hello All, Been awhile, and I really want to keep up with my blogs here on lumberjocks so here goes another. Spud (or I) has (or “have” if you assume I) been buying a lot of new tools to expand my business line and so far its been more spending money than making, but that’s the short term plan anyhow… I think. Other than expanding my (or Spud’s) tools and products its seems like I have been getting a crash course in sales 101. What makes my product diffe...

Greenhouse #1: Here's the Scoop

399 days ago by Steve | 0 comments »

I am building a greenhouse and wanted to post some info here about the greenhouse. I just can’t deal with posting in both places, so have decided because the greenhouse relates more to gardening to post my info in my gardening blog. So if your interested check it out over in GardenTenders. I am providing sufficient details, so if someone choose to do so, you could build a replica of my greenhouse.

Murphy Bed #1: Building a Murphy Bed from scratch

407 days ago by Jim Jakosh | 18 comments »

We need a Murphy bed next winter in Arizona and I did not want to buy the hardware. That takes all the fun out of designing it yourself and costs $360. So I looked at a lot of bed designs and settled on one that used HD pivots, gas springs for counterbalance and a swing out leg support rather than the fold down kind.The parameters were a twin mattress (7×39 x 75), had to flip long ways and enough room inside for making the bed. Then I had to decide on the pivot points, the foot pivot ce...

My Garage/Work Shop Makeover #7: New Miter Saw Station

419 days ago by MT_Stringer | 4 comments »

My next part of the garage makeover is to build a miter saw station. I bought the plans from Ron Paulk and studied them over and over and watched his videos on building his work bench. So, I finally used Mikey’s Sketch pad to design my version of the miter saw station. Here is my plan. Sorry there is not a lot of detail in my plan but here is the jist of it. Build two cabinets that will be used for storing power tools and larger jigs and leave room for short cut offs 24 i...
