Gift Projects #2: Making Cutting Boards Out Of a Single Peice of Solid Wood

05-17-2018 06:05 PM by ScottBelleri | 0 comments »

I made these paddle-style cutting boards out of solid 6/4” maple. This is thick enough that they shouldn’t warp, and they can be sanded down a number of times. It is called a paddle-style cutting board because its handle makes it look a bit like a paddle. The handle makes it easy to carry and hang, and also gives it a unique character. Sugar maple is an ideal wood for cutting boards because it is hard, but not so hard that it will dull your knives. Really, the only import...

Coffee table #1: Some pics of my daughters coffee table

05-13-2018 12:47 AM by icemanhank | 10 comments »

Hi all, I was asked by daughter #2 to build a coffee table of her and her partners design. I had some Tasmanian Blackwood floating around in the shed which I thought would be nice for the frame and had some beautiful 1/4 sawn tasmanian Oak at the wood club that was free (old church pews) which I thought I could use for the top. Although the original intension was a live edge piece. This can be changed easily at a later time if she still wants the slab top. The Oak for the top, while ...

Building A Cuttaway Acoustic Guitar #1: Part 1- Beginning Steps of Building an Acoustic Guitar

05-08-2018 04:17 AM by DMiller | 5 comments »

Over the course of my life I have been interested in building a stringed instrument- this last December I began collecting the supplies needed to accomplish what looked like and and still at times feels like a giant of a project. In December, I planned on trying to keep the costs within the budget of $200; since then I have found that is not a possible sum to stay within! (: I did happen to have most of the wood I needed for this project, which greatly cuts the cost down. Now to get to the...

Bath Stool #6: Saddle

04-23-2018 02:37 PM by Diego Cassels | 3 comments »

Well this was a great idea, I made lots of design errors that I had to fix with little adjustments. All of this could have been avoided if I had followed the original plans!! So don´t make the same mistakes I made!! I´m very happy with the final result. Here I just made a straight mortise and it all went fine. I repeated the same for the other leg.

Shop Notes #18: Wine Rack Prototype

04-17-2018 04:17 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

I spent the majority of the day yesterday finishing up the last elements of the wine rack I’m making from black acacia. I needed four stretchers to hold the front and back together, and as it’s been for all aspects of this project, I was afraid that the design was too flimsy. The stretchers were to be turned from acacia as well with tenons on each end. I decided on through tenons only because I could drill through both sides at the same time, ensuring that the mortises would li...

Shop Notes #17: Experimenting with Black Acacia

04-13-2018 04:05 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Some time last year, a local lumberyard cleared out the last of their black acacia for dirt cheap. The lumber wasn’t great—lots of splits and narrow pieces, but for the price, it was worth a gamble. After a few months in the shop, I finally broke out a couple of boards to make some beer flight paddles and a wine rack or two. For the paddles, I wanted to create a flat-bottom surface for the tasting glasses. Boring a partial hole with a forstner bit would leave a score around...

Shop Notes #11: A Productive Week

03-09-2018 08:39 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Getting my resaw blade in place really opened the floodgates this week. I finished gluing up and planing my mid-century modern boards. I also finished up some leftover chaotic pattern boards that were still hanging around from the holiday rush. By mid week, I was looking at a stack of some 17 cutting boards, ready for sanding. The chaotic boards were made 1 1/2” thick and haven’t sold well in that size. As a test, I sawed one into two 3/4” boards and ran them through ...

Composer's Desk #1: Composer's Desk - blogging the project

03-07-2018 09:36 PM by nickbatz | 0 comments »

I was having these made by a shop out of solid oak or maple for over a decade, and all along I wanted to develop an affordable version. Then – spurred on by someone actually offering money :) – I figured it out: make it myself, and use nice oak plywood and high-quality Douglass fir dimensional lumber instead of solid oak that brings the materials cost up to about as much as this whole thing sold for! Based on posting pics on Facebook, I now I have two more “commissions...

Cutting Boards and Bandsaws

03-06-2018 04:48 PM by Steve | 4 comments »

I normally don’t mind saw blade changes, but I make an exception for the bandsaw, which is no fun at all. After the struggle to get the old blade off and the new one seated, there’s the long tedious process of setting the guides just so. In this case, I was installing a new resaw blade. I ruined the old one well over a year ago when I hit a hidden spike in a chunk of reclaimed pine. The blade made it through the steel, but (of course) was never the same again. I’ve be...
