Life as an Amateur Woodworker #75: Made a start on the Dining Room Suite

04-05-2016 08:34 PM by PhilBello | 7 comments »

I think it will take almost as long to prepare this, as if I made it from scratch! On closer inspection, they used nails to supplement all the joints. Then just covered both the nails and the joints in filler, I guess to cover with their gloopy paint! I started by sanding the table with 80 grit, to remove the filler and expose the nails and wood grain, then punched all the nails, and raked out the filler. They have not only nailed the joints, but the top to the skirt as well, wh...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #74: A Cheat!

04-05-2016 12:13 PM by PhilBello | 6 comments »

I’m going to have to go on a diet…lol! Our dining room chairs have been breaking one after the other, and we decided that we had to replace them, however on scouting around it was cheaper to buy a new suite than just the chairs. We had also decided to downsize, and give ourselves more room, there is only the two of us, so we are going to have a smaller table and only four chairs. Here in Colombia, unless you go to the big stores with imported furniture, with a bottomless pocket, ...

Plant stand #7: Glue up

04-02-2016 06:19 PM by BJODay | 1 comment »

I varnished the pieces individually. I use water based varnish. I like to wipe it on with a rag. It leaves a thin coat. So I give it 3-4 coats until I feel it is covered well. Varnishing first also makes glue clean up easier. I always dry fit just in case there is a burr or other fit problem before I break out the glue. The green tape has marks on it so I get the lower rails all positioned to the same height. I left a little play, (vertically), in the tenons for wiggle room. The upper r...

Homemade Tetris Game Board

03-24-2016 04:55 AM by ShogunJimi | 0 comments »

Here is the link to my video. https://youtu.be/4gf76dZRf6Y I made this project for my wife as a gift for her birthday which was two months ago. I don’t have much textual instruction for this build but the video describes the process. She does love the gift but it ended up being too big for the idea that I had. I wanted her to take it to work and place on her desk but it is 22 by 14 inches. I hope you enjoy the project video and please give me any feedback that will be helpful f...

Plant stand #6: Tapered legs

03-24-2016 03:04 AM by BJODay | 3 comments »

I wanted to add some tapers to the lower portions of the legs. I made a sled to cut the tapers. I know there are adjustable jigs out there. I didn’t have time to research it fully. If I need the same jig later I may have to readjust things. I cut a test piece. All looks good. Here is the first full size leg cut with the jig. Here is a dry fit view. View with taper and bow-tie. Looks like I intentionally placed the bow-tie there. Here is a dry fit of the upper corb...

Plant stand #5: Corbels and bow-ties

03-23-2016 02:48 PM by BJODay | 1 comment »

Time to cover my mistakes with corbels. I cut the tenons first. It is easier to hold onto a longer workpiece. Below I’ve laid out the desired curves. Here is how they are cut out on the band saw. Here is how the will be positioned. The pieces are too small to try to use a pattern and flush bit on the router table. So I use a drum sander kit on the drill press. This worked better and faster than I expected. Here is a quick look at how the upper corbels will be positioned....

Thanks to everyone for sticking with me to the end. In this video I cover all the little things that have to happen before I can finish, as well as the finishing process itself. The bench turned out better than expected and my customer was elated. As always, keep the conversation going below. Thanks for watching!
