Reclaimed Oak Barn Wood

03-21-2010 05:25 AM by michaelray | 2 comments »

I’ve been busy trying to gather up some oak barn wood that was given to me by a local farmer. More on the back story of how I came across it is in this post. I was able to get a couple of pictures before unloading the truck. I’ve posted them here. One of my hopes for the wood is to be able to build a Morris Chair sometime in the future.

Sewing Center #7

03-23-2009 03:30 AM by robbi | 2 comments »

I worked on this last weekend but didn’t post anything because all I got done were the feet. The plans to this thing are kind of lame. The legs are only two sided with a 15 degree bevel on them. I really had to just guess on everything, they gave you dimensions, but that was it, didn’t tell you about the bevels or anything, if you just did everything square, nothing fit, so I just tweeked it myself. I started on the doors last weekend too, but discovered I had a problem with...

Vermont Lap Desk, almost done:

04-20-2013 05:43 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

With the sides all nice and coplanar, time to mill a rabbet for a bottom. Set up a router with a 3/8” rabbetting bit, and ran it around the edges. Squared the corners with a chisel. Now, I get told there is to be a divider in this desk. Hunt around for a piece of scrap wood to make the divider. I also needed a dado for it to be installed. So, I laid one out, about three inches from the front. handsawn, and then chiseled to remove the waste And repeat for the other s...

Prayer Kneeler #1: Starting to take shape

03-20-2012 05:17 PM by Trabiman | 2 comments »

A friend of mine, who took a day from work and drove 6hrs round trip, ran a new 100 AMP panel from the house to my woodshop. When I tried to give him money, he refused and asked only that I make him something. I said sure thing… He asked me to build a prayer kneeler for his house. He only had one requirement, which was that it be made out of scrap that I had on hand in the shop. After looking at many sites and other postings of those who make kneelers I have finally have a start.

My First Workbench #18: Day 18: The big dry fit!

08-30-2012 12:39 AM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

To see the picture heavy version of this post, please click here! Very excited today because I got a lot accomplished! I ended with a dry fit of the entire bench and started work on the leg vise. To get started, I finished sawing the bridle joint on the last leg…best cuts to date! Straight as an arrow!When the last legs were cut, I grabbed the rubber mallet and chisels and hacked out the joints in about 10 minutes. So much faster than before! Sharp chisels are a joy to wor...

[Moxon Mini-bench] Save thy back.

03-20-2013 10:10 PM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

Well, after stooping over to cut three of the four dovetail joints for the project I’m working on, I realized two things—-(1) I take a long time to join (I’m averaging about an hour and a half) and (2) that much time stooped over the leg vise is killing my back in the cold (30-40*) garage! So I tooled around the internet looking for solutions to my problem, all the while trying to keep calm, because that ticking clock in the back of my head is getting insistent that I get a...
