Like opening a Christmas present

12-19-2013 05:13 AM by jasonallen | 2 comments »

Awhile back i cut down some oak trees for a friend. I took the firewood for myself and we loaded up the trunks on a 2 ton truck and hauled them to a mill for his personal use. When I recently started my own little woodshop he gave me some of that lumber to get started with. Since we are all natural born tightwads around here he gave me the worst bottom of the barrel lumber out of the whole bunch. But I’m not complaining about free material. Today I decided to see what I could get o...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #35: Wood Gloat

07-04-2012 01:39 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

WE had a 60 year old oak tree in the back yard that died – DRATS!!! Anyway we had to have it taken down because of it’s size. I was smart enough to save some branches to use on furture. I have enough for several projects. One picture shows two branches that I have cut into strips 3/8 inchs wide. NOw I need to plane and sand them to size. The real story behind the tree is that when my daughter was about 5 or 6 we played ball under the tree in the evenings. I am sure ...

1st Floor

This is the “Salzburg”....from www.wildwooddesigns.com. These are pics of the finished project from the weebsite and pics of what I’;ve completed so far.This is by far the most complicated and challenging project I have undertaken. For others, I’m sure it’s a walk in the park. For a project like, this I have to be in the “mood”. So this pattern is 5 stories, that means it is cut and assembled one story at a time. As of right now I just finishe...

01-23-2012 06:03 PM by theSawdustSurfer | 2 comments »

I had just finished a pastryboard to my wife. and had nothing to do. I looked around the shop to see if there was something i could build. A few months ago i bought some pieces of oak to my kitchen project but i saved one of the pieces for special occations/projects. The grain was tighter and the weight was heavier than the other pieces. I saved it wanted to make something nice and useful of it. I decided to make a hand plane, Krenov style. I realize that oak is not the optimal wood for...

Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #8: Backsplash Inlay and Trimming Top

01-13-2013 08:04 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

With the top built, it was time to turn my attention to the backsplash inlay and wedge detail. ----I cut a double sided taper on the backsplash piece using a tapering jig at the tablesaw. ----I saved my offcuts to make wedge shapes. The wedges were glued back onto the backsplash. I was careful to place the wedge in its original position so the grain would align. ---- The backsplash is carpet taped to a strip of MDF. This creates a straight reference point to cut shallow dados for m...
