End Table #7: Top, chore

06-02-2016 02:37 PM by Tony19 | 0 comments »

Today I made my top by glueing 3 pieces of oak together and sanding it. I did have some tribe making this because it would not fit in the planer so I had to use the handsander to sand it which took much longer. I also made my chore, and to do it, I used the dove cutter and glued the pieces together. I fitted the bottom in and put the false chore front on it and put the handle in. I sanded it and now it looks great in my end table.

Building a Bench Rest for Wood Turning #1: Genesis of the Idea and the Basic Design

05-29-2016 05:28 PM by RichCMD | 1 comment »

I am one of those people who have trouble standing for very long. Although I love woodturning, standing at the lathe for a long period can become very painful. A back support helps some, but even with the support I can still have problems. Taking ibuprofen can extend how long I can stand, but I dislike routinely taking it as it can be hard on the stomach. I first came upon the idea of using a bench rest in an article by Ernie Conover in the May/June 2014 issue of Woodworkers Journal...

Conference Room Table #1: Table top help

04-29-2016 11:24 PM by RPG | 2 comments »

Hello lumber jock community. I’d love some advise and pics if possible on this. I’ve been asked to build a conference room table for a small company. I’m on a low budget but want to obviously make a quality top. I made the pedestals already but struggling with the top and budget. My thoughts are to either join oak 3/4” 6X8’s together or a sheet of oak ply and join butter board ends. I was going to pocket hole and glue everything together and case it with 1X3 o...

State Fair Series #2: From the Jaws of failure

04-24-2016 10:04 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Howdy, I spent some time yesterday laminating 2 wood choices together. Today I set myself up for some precision cutting. I didn’t use Klaus’ sled. You see I experimented over and over again getting my depth just right. My index was exactly 7/8 of an inch. Heck, half my time was spent on the math. I’m pretty sure most of my issues today are because I didn’t build a 45 degree sled with an indexer. I know the worst problems I had were because I didn’t buil...

End Table #4: Rails, supports, kickers

04-22-2016 03:11 PM by Tony19 | 0 comments »

Today I installed the rails by cutting 2 17inch beams of oak for the front page part of my chore. I also made kickers for the top entry where the chore goes in. I made holes and screwed them on each side. As you can see in the picture above. I also made 45 degree triangle supports for my top and legs. I cut holes for them and screwed them in on each side.
