These will be subdivided into three (3) sections, with the two (2) outer areas having Solid Oak framed Glass Doors with a golden color grill work attatched. The Top Middle Area will be the Rotating Lazy Susan Bookcase, it will be primarily of four (4) sections. Two larger areas for ...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #14: The Paradox of Quartersawn on Four Sides...

02-04-2010 03:48 AM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

I ran over to the lumber yard and picked up some 4/4 for the base and a stick of 8/4 to make a single chair out of. I was going to finish the base before I started on the legs, but this 8/4 stick was magnificent (and I didn’t want anyone else to nab it). I recently posted a question in the Design Forum about possibly laminating 3/4” stock to make the legs 1-1/2”, but I couldn’t take any shortcuts (regardless of how cost-effective they might be) on the dining room set...

Wood Gloat - - 8/4 inch Kiln Dried Rough-Cut Oak

02-25-2013 11:38 PM by OttoH | 3 comments »

As I mentioned in my last project post I have been busy doing things for other people and have not had much workshop time but was getting ready to get back into it. What better way than picking up 24 rough-cut kiln dried 8/4 inch oak boards, between 5 and 6 feet in length each. These boards were taken from an oak tree at the church that had to be removed for a construction project. I can’t wait to get started and see what comes of these beautiful boards!

First Cutting Board #2: Final Glue Up

11-17-2010 04:46 PM by Szczuldo | 3 comments »

Well like all things, the final design has changed from my initial plans. I got access to a very nice 30” belt sander so smoothing the initial cuts was no issue. The oak in this board is from old wood flooring so the back had ridges that needed to be flattened out. The glue is a bit messy but that’ll be cleaned up. As you can see I had some burning issues, from the look of it probably due to the way I setup to do these cuts. I did what I could with the grain, I did not have an ...

Mallets Made in Mexico

01-14-2012 04:44 AM by Omegacool | 3 comments »

Para golpear mis formones utilizo desde un simple pedazo de madera, martillo, mazo de metal o de hule, pero ahora comencé a hacer un mazo de madera de una pagina de planos gratuitos, y tenia la idea de hacer tambien un pequeño mazo de talla. Caminando por el mercado encontre un puesto de artesanias y tenian unos apachurradores y dije “es igualito” entonces los compre. Me falta terminar el mazo grande y darle un acabado a los pequeños.

Quest for a bigger TV #7: Bookcase Doors

10-25-2010 06:12 PM by JBfromMN | 3 comments »

This series has been about re-creating an existing wall entertainment unit to accomidate a larger TV for my parents. In the 2 side bookcases there were doors that have glass panels in them. My Dad took up the task of re-creating these glass panels himself. He located an Art Glass store in Minneapolis where he could purchase all of the supplies and equipment needed to create these glass panels. They are true divided light windows with brass caming. He spent about a month perfecting the ...

It was easy to shoot and a fast project and using very limited tools. I am hoping to shoot more videos as the time goes on but ...

My first Lazy Suzan.

03-05-2010 05:47 AM by Lupo | 3 comments »

I am building this for a friend Over Seas. Her name is Ines so that is what this is named also. The ” Lazy Ines ”. It ought to be fun to finish. I do not have a thickness planer so it has been all Hand Planers. Also the edges are being rounded out by hand with a rasp. You really appreciate the work when you have limited tools!!!!
