Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #7: Finishing the top and M&T on Front Legs.

06-21-2012 03:09 PM by Mauricio | 28 comments »

Hello friends. After more failure with the wooden screws I decided to order some dust collection attachments for the router and order some more maple dowels. While I waited for those to come in I worked on the top and legs. Here is a quick pictorial tour of my progress. Flattened the top. This is the first real workout for the #7! Worked great. Square edges, stool as board jack. First real workout for the #5 to. I love it, it really gets the work done fast! I decided a 2.5” to...

Just for Fun... #81: Woodworking on the Back Burner...

12-06-2013 08:39 PM by littlecope | 26 comments »

After taking the Summer off (and enjoying it immensely!) it was time to get back to Work! And after searching around in the available jobs, I was lucky enough to find Work in the finest Hospital in N.H., the Catholic Medical Center of Manchester…It seems that their Cafeteria was only open for the first and second shifts, and their third shift employees had been requesting “Hot Food” for some time… A decision was made, and the Cafe is now open for them with yours truly ...

"grizze's cave in peril"

04-08-2011 10:47 PM by grizzman | 26 comments »

what started out as a passing storm turned into the revenge of the tree onto my house, it was about 9:30 pm and i was going to bed…i started to read and then i heard and felt what i thought was a train hitting the house…my house sits on an elevated foundation and it built fairly strong, the floor are 2×10’s they are nailed and also strapped to 6×6 beams…so the floor and the wall stood the impact. It was pouring down rain with thunder and lightning all around ...

Stickley Spindle Dining Chairs #1: Beginning the cuts for the raw pieces

12-23-2012 08:39 PM by Philfranklin | 24 comments »

Having made a couple of prototypes from Robert Lang’s plans I embarked on the ambitious journey of building a complete set of 8 chairs; 6 side chairs and 2 arm chairs, along with the Stickley #599 Trestle Table. I thought it might be helpful for those who wanted to know about building this unique chair design. The first image is of a raw “blanks” for the back legs. I oriented the quarter sawn face on the sides, and prefered veneering a quarter sawn face on the front a...

Dado set up grade.....

10-16-2011 09:36 AM by lilredweldingrod | 24 comments »

When I bought my Dado set, it came in a cheapo cardboard box. As heavy as the set is, every time I use it, I expect to pick up a ruined set of dado blade4s off the concrete floor. Well today I decided to make a dynamite box for it out of oak. I even used strong backs on the lid. Maybe I’ll even pack them in sawdust just like dynamite. lol I don’t have the hinges I want as yet, but I want a set of black rott iron that comes up the side of the box and at lest half way over...

Charles Rohlfs Oak Desk, Stickley Ellis Table & Iconic Crafts, Nelson Atkins Art Gallery Kansas City

Wow! I made it, I finally made it, and oh what a surprise to find a museum with Iconic Furniture pieces intermixed with a lot of European, Asian, Native American, Egyptian, and some strange Contemporary Stuff that someone else calls “art”. ————————- WARNING: If you are easily offended by my silly notions of what looks good and is well built, please don’t read any farther. I’m just giving my opinions, that is what ...

Karma brought me LOTS of FREE wood today!

10-22-2008 05:38 AM by oldskoolmodder | 23 comments »

I was out at my local exotic wood store that I’ve shopped at for the last 25 years, and picked up a few nice things, as well as some wood too. I was kind of wondering how I let myself spend $87 (total) on Purple Heart, (1×11 1/4×17), 1/8” x 2 1/2” x 36” (2pcs), 1” x 2” x 30” Cordia/Bocote & 1/4” x 4” x 24” Mexican Chechen, plus brad tip bits and nice adjustable countersink bits plus a bunch of misc stuff. When I went...

Ebonizing oak with vinegar and steel wool solution.

02-05-2012 04:10 PM by bigfish_95008 | 23 comments »

A while back I was reading about using vinegar and steel wool to ebonize wood – particularly Oaks. I took the last of the wife’s vinegar and and some steel wool threw them in an old peanut butter jar and set it on the shelf. Nothing seemed to be happening with it – don’t know what I was expecting, but even after a few days in solution there was not significant color change of the liquid. Yesterday, a fabulous day here in SOCAL by the way, I looked at the solution and n...
