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...
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.
Hey guys, So I’ve had chance to do and film another project. This time I wanted a knockout box for my coffee making. So I decided to make a dovetail box to hold the spent grounds. Here’s how it turned out: If you’d like to see how I did it then check out the videos below: View on YouTube View on YouTube View on YouTube
The final part. Cut your curves and apply a finish. Now get to using it.
I started by my project by opening the book to the materials list. Then grab a board of oak and cut it down to make the rales.
Hello. I’m new to this site and I would appreciate any helpful suggestions or tips regarding my project . A couple of 200 – 250 yr. old at least , California Costal Live Oaks have recently come down on the property that I live on, and I have been Milling them myself with a Alaska Mill that I have put together, here’s a few photo’s to share : I’ve coated both sides with Anchorseal , and have stickered them accordingly.Through reading as much material ...
Something that caught my eye while working with this piece of wood. Reminds me of a Halloween face
Here is a shot of the top and the shelf. I taped and marked the shelf because it will be notched around the legs. I measured from the center out. I didn’t want to work from one side and push any play all to one end. I wanted to cut on the band saw but that would have meant marking the top and bottom. It is too long to cut it all in the band saw without flipping it over. I thought this will be a perfect opportunity to screw it up. So instead I cut it just a little shy using a jig saw....
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...
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, ...
