Bottom level dividers 3/8” x 2-1/2” dividers, friction fit, no glue. Holds touch up filler, stain & graining bottles, burn in sticks. Middle level is wax rub on sticks. 3/4” deep sandwiched between bottom and top levels Top level is for the most used s...

Homemade Tetris Game Board

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

Here is the link to my video. 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....

Plant stand #4: Arched rails

03-21-2016 07:35 PM by BJODay | 1 comment »

I didn’t want straight rails. Here I’ve drawn an arch on the rails. I then cut the waste off on a band saw. I cut close but not up to the line. In the picture above are the rough cut rails. I have a pattern I used on an earlier project. I saved it and I’m glad I did because it’s perfect for this table. I made it from 1/4” masonite. Some people use double sided tape to hold the pattern to the piece. I used 3 small screws. Below I have a pattern or flush-...

Blog #1

03-17-2016 01:28 PM by MatthewTruax | 1 comment »

With this being my first blog, I’ll start by saying that my name is Matthew Truax. I’m currently serving the Army, and I live in the Midwest. Of course, being in the Army and having a wood shop has proven to be difficult as I’m currently well over my household goods weight limit. I’m trying to mitigate that by getting rid of what I don’t need and building multi tool stations in the shop to alleviate space issues as well. My shop currently resides in a two car ...

The art of building Wooden boats

03-16-2016 03:14 AM by BigBrownLog | 8 comments »

I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...

Fumed oak

03-16-2016 01:25 AM by Brodan | 4 comments »

Fumed a small piece that I built to use for mounting an antique pencil sharpener to the wall in my study. The fuming with household ammonia in a plastic container for 2 days uniformly darkened the oak. Shown with a cut off of the original piece. Now what’s the best / easiest way to get the the reddish brown look of the other pieces in the room. Shown on a table that I’d like to look similar to. I’ve read BLO followed by amber shellac. Is this the correct path or ???...

Oak Storage Bench #6: This Lid/Seat

03-08-2016 04:14 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

No voiceover today. I needed just under 18” to make the top, so I opted to make the panel out of 3 – 6” wide boards. I chose 6” because that is pretty much the maximum capacity of my jointer. I got to use my biscuit joiner for the first time on this project. I got it for a steal on clearance last year and have been waiting to use it ever since. Once I got it dialed in, it was pretty easy to use. The joints lined up perfectly with the biscuits aiding in the alignm...
