Computer Desk #1: Up to this point...

07-15-2010 06:10 AM by Scott G. | 3 comments »

It begins with a friend asking me if I could make him something after learning I had completed my apprenticeship. “Yep, I can make you something, what do you have in mind?” He told me he wanted a new computer desk, because the one he’s using is uncool. The guy I apprenticed with specialized in tables and bookshelves, so that seemed right up my alley. I was enthusiastic that I could make a little money doing what I had set out to do in the first place. It was looki...

Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #6: Buying the Wood

07-12-2010 03:18 PM by kharder | 2 comments »

I have recently moved and progress on the model boat Sunshine has slowed. When i find my camera i’ll post the pictures of the completed molds mounted and aligned on the strongback. In preperation for actual construction I began researching what types of wood to use. I found out about Jeff at HobbyMill (HobbyMill@cinci.rr.com) on a model ship building forum and he has been a pleasure to work with. He has all kinds of wood you can order in sheets milled to spec or in strips. he is ev...

New "Antique" Lathe Stand #1: step up to the stand

07-12-2010 03:52 AM by scottb | 4 comments »

I wasn’t totally happy with the former workbench, turned lathe stand. So, when we moved, I re-purposed that to be the outfeed table for my table saw, and set about planning a new one for my mini lathe. I had a couple plans that I’d almost made – but would have had to buy or salvage the right pieces. One was a great, and HEAVY, made with plywood and filled with sand. Twice, I almost started that one… but the idea of something lighter with properly splayed legs appeal...

four station desk #3: Finished pictures, was just delivered.

07-08-2010 06:23 AM by 559dustdesigns | 3 comments »

Here you see my four station desk inside the medical clinic, where it now reduced. I used Minwax special Walnut stain before a beautiful lacquer finish was applied by my friend and teacher, Mr. Lehman. Thanks to Mr. Lehman I was able to supply my client a set of desks with a first rate durable finish.

four station desk #2: more progress

07-08-2010 06:02 AM by 559dustdesigns | 2 comments »

The desks are now assembled and I started fabricating the drawer fronts and doors. After realizing I made the doors wrong and couldn’t use the concealed hinges that I wanted, I made another set.These pictures show some in progress shots of what I did to accommodate the hinges I have. The parts are marked and ready for drilling for the hinge cups. I used my General drill guide a lot on this project. Most of the drawer boxes are finished and I am now in the middle...

Oak Pub Table #1: The Beginning

06-26-2010 02:08 AM by VinnieP | 4 comments »

For my parents’ 30th anniversary I told them I would build them a table for their remodeled basement. It is going to be solid white oak. I orignally planned on using quartersawn for the top, but in the end decided not to use it. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. I’m excited because I’ve never built a table before and I’ll get to use my new grizzly jointer. I’m nervous because I’ve never built a table before. So here it goes. I’...

Works in Progress #2: beatin' up my oak

06-24-2010 05:36 PM by tyskkvinna | 8 comments »

I’ve gone through and painted all of the pieces.. and have sanded about half of them. I’m amazingly unhappy with the cherry, overall. It’s just …... not what I wanted, I guess. It’s very flaky? Moreso than the other cherry I’ve worked with. Guess I can’t complain – I got it for free out of a burn-pile from a cabinet maker, so obviously it wasn’t a “great” piece of wood to start. Here is that piece of oak again. Re...

four station desk #1: First look

06-23-2010 10:43 AM by 559dustdesigns | 3 comments »

I’m now working on a couple of desks for a Medical clinic. I’ve been working on this project for about 13 days now. I built this unit out of oak plywood and red oak lumber. I started this project by constructing the the upper portions first. I had to wait to receive my hardware before building the base cabinets. This set of desks is custom for the client, the first desk station on the left is 50” wide than there is (3) 40” wide stations one of the stations is going to ...

Just for Fun... #20: Down to the Last Pegs...

06-16-2010 05:48 AM by littlecope | 18 comments »

Time to wrap this one up…I got in a full morning and part of the afternoon’s play today and completed the assembly… almost. Started by pegging the corners of the lid togetherThen the bottom, first up and into the bottom corners, then down through the top halfwayThe clamping on those may look precarious, but is actually very well balanced. I clamp each corner individually that way and lift the whole assembly to where I tap in the pegs.With that done, I finally fill in the exp...
