Alder wood & Tule Peak Timber

04-28-2009 06:25 PM by Kindlingmaker | 2 comments »

Saturday morning MickeyD and I poured a thermos of coffee, made some sandwiches and headed for Tule Peak Timber to buy some fresh alder slabs. The drive was well over three hours long but was well worth the time. Rob Durfos met us as we drove our truck onto his property. His genuine friendliness and excitement about wood instantly led to a tour of the mill where the alder was being cut, the huge stacks of drying woods and his work shop. The clean mountain top air mixed with the heavy scents o...

My First Workbench #19: Day 19: Assembling the base!

08-31-2012 01:12 AM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

To see the version with pictures, please click here. Finally, the day I’ve been working towards for the last three weeks or so has arrived! I was able to successfully glue up the base and insert the oak pegs. It is no longer a collection of parts and sawdust…it is now a collection of glued together parts and sawdust! I started by making 4” pegs out of the 3 ft long oak dowels that I had purchased with the initial lumber investment. I haven’t really worked with...

Tool Chest #2, Build an end panel

08-08-2014 05:06 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, frame is almost done Maybe some tweaking left. Needed to find out what size to finish cut the raised panel to. Around 11-1/4 by 13 or so. Got out the “Speed Square” and laid out a few lines. Running the circular saw a different direction this time, with most of the weight on the non waste side Set the saw to almost cut through the panel, and NOT the benchtop. Next, maybe make some beveled edges? A Millers Fall #14 Jack plane for the work. I marked out ab...

Boat Bed #3: Bow footboard Toy box

04-29-2009 01:47 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I worked on the bow of the boat bed. This is a design that I came up with. You may have seen them with drawers in the bow, but I find those not very practical. Because of the shape the drawers must be a triangle shaped. Because of that they can’t hold much stuff. My design has been to use it as a toy box. I first cut the shape of the bottom. I now have templates. The top is the same shape but with a cutout, to make a face frame of sorts. I attach both of them to a back board using p...

Coffee Table - Red Oak & Padauk #1: Table Top

04-16-2012 03:50 PM by Mosquito | 2 comments »

I’m in the process of building a coffee table for my apartment. I’m using Red Oak and Padauk for this. It’s going to be a relatively basic basic table. It was an extremely nice day for this in March. Yes, I started this in March… outside… in shorts… in MN… did I mention my distaste for this “winter”? Anyway, I started by using my [home made] router table to shave a pair of 3/4×11.25” boards down to 11” wide to use ...
