Monogram End Grain Cutting Board #1: Getting Started

07-12-2013 03:26 PM by Gene47 | 3 comments »

Greetings & Salutations, I just got the news a little while back that my youngest nephew is getting marriedthis December. I am looking forward to that as it will be a good excuse to go toFlorida for some good times with some of the family. I wanted to come up with a different kind of gift but also wanted something thatI would not have to carry in my pickup. Being kind of practical since the P/U gets18 mpg and my Prius gets 51 mpg that would take a big dent out of the travel budget. ...

Making a Saw Vise

11-16-2012 12:37 AM by nobuckle | 3 comments »

Some time ago I purchased a scroll saw off Craig’s List. The guy I bought it from also gave me some old hand saws. I got them home and cleaned them up a bit. Upon inspecting the teeth I realized that they needed some work. I decided to make a saw vise so I could sharpen them. I made a video of the techniques I used to build one that I found in the SketchUp 3D Warehouse. It’s made of some white oak that I had laying around. Perhaps you’ll be inspired to build one of your own....

Cabinet for the dogs #1: The Plan

08-15-2013 02:17 PM by Ampeater | 3 comments »

My daughter asked me to recommend the best way to make a cabinet to enclose the two dog crates that she uses for her small dogs (a white West Highland Terrier and a Scotty). She found this on the net. Her dogs are small and she doesn’t have room for something this large, so I used Sketchup and came up with this design. It is 58” Wide, 24” Deep, and 32” High. I bought some cabinet grade oak plywood and I will use white oak for the face frame and the drawer...

Home Finishing... not your typical basement remodel #1: Medieval Shop Entry and Home Bar

01-11-2011 06:58 AM by Brian Strothcamp | 3 comments »

My first blog… so I reserve the right to screw it up :) This is the start of a huge project, basically finishing the lower level of our atrium home. I have a lot under way but will catch you up over the next few days so subscribe now! First lets take a look at the entrance to my woodshop. These doors are 2×4 framed with reclaimed barn siding. I made the cultured stone myself and plan on ordering a nice set of authentic iron forged hardware for them. Will be complete with rive...

Moving right along

03-04-2012 01:15 AM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

Yesterday I was able to get the four rails for the head and foot boards sanded down to the correct thickness along with a rabbit to hold the stiles. Then I cut the tenons on the rails and cut a test mortise for the legs. Today I put six hours in the shop and got the mortises cut on the legs along with a dry fit. I cut the tenons for the first 15 stiles for the head board. I will get the other 15 tenons cut on the stiles for the foot board and then will start sanding all of these pieces so th...

Quest for a bigger TV #8: Nearing the end

10-26-2010 07:13 PM by JBfromMN | 3 comments »

After having this new TV Entertainment Center project going on in my shop for over 2 months we were getting near the end. We installed the custom milled baseboard on all three pieces. Sanded them all the was to 180 and then started the finishing process. The first step was to take all of the doors and drawers out and remove all of the hardware. That was a monumental task in itself. There are a lot of hinges, knobs and slides on this thing. I am not sure I have mentioned it before, b...

First Cutting Board #3: Pre-finish

11-18-2010 10:20 PM by Szczuldo | 3 comments »

Figured i’d update this real quick. I just finished sanding the board flat and routing the finger holds. The board lost 0.5” in length (stupid me forgot to change zero on my plunge base when i changed the bit.) Looking back on this project, I wish I had more in my garage than just a Table saw, ROS, and router. Sure driving 10 minutes to my friend’s place and using their belt sander and jointer isn’t too much of an issue but I don’t want to overuse my welcome. ...

Coffee Table - Red Oak & Padauk #4: Build complete

05-10-2012 01:36 PM by Mosquito | 3 comments »

Last weekend I was able to complete the coffee table, apart from finishing it. I put a bevel on the top and bottom corners of the table top, as well as a slight bevel on all the way around the legs, and on the bottom edges of the apron. As per a recommendation from someone on my last blog entry, I also put a decently heavy bevel on the leg bottoms, to try to avoid splintering. I attached the top with table top fasteners and cut the slots for them with my biscuit joiner. Cat ...
