Two step stool

1684 days ago by bgilb | 5 comments »

This is my first wood working project ever. It’s a step stool for my girlfriend. I got a R4511 for Christmas and that’s where it started. I still need to sand it some more, and carve hearts into the sides. I used finger joints, and the three side pieces are held together with tongue and groove joints for extra strength. Is this strong enough? There is another piece in the back with finger joints for extra strength. The finger joints had gaps in some parts, not really sure how t...

Idea

1684 days ago by LeChuck | 5 comments »

As I’m setting up and building my workshop, and seeing all those really nice workbenches built by woodworkers here, I’m thinking that I’d really love to build my own, but how to build a piece that will last me a long time while keeping the cost down on a limited budget. Hardware will cost money. I’ll have to buy a couple decent quality vises, so I’ll need to keep the cost of wood down. For the base, I’m thinking that I could go for construction grade ...

Building a Door

1684 days ago by richgreer | 8 comments »

All of the woodwork in our house is cherry except for the front door, which is oak. I assume the builder used an oak front door because the outside portion is exposed to the elements and cherry would not hold up well. I have an idea for building a new door. I would like to laminate oak and cherry so I have oak on the outside and cherry on the inside. This would be a panel door and I would make laminations for both the frame pieces and the panels. I would finish the outside with a s...

Fixing botched quadrilinear legs.

1701 days ago by bsherman | 4 comments »

I had some unexpected success fixing a screwup when making quadrilinear legs for my Harvey Ellis Bed project. The 1st 4 legs that I made got ruined for a couple of different reasons. On my second attempt, the joints didn’t close all the way on one of the legs. I really didn’t want to start a 9th leg attempt, so I tried to fix it. I set the tablesaw to 45 degrees and ran an 8th inch dado down the joints, and stuck some scraps in the dados. If I knew how good this would ...

Kitchen Cabinet Job #1: Carcases

1705 days ago by jackd942 | 7 comments »

I’ve actually made two posts over at my website www.deltawoodworks.com on this job, but I think I’ll just consolidate those first two into this single post here. I was asked by my family to make my grandmother a set of cabinets for the newly constructed addition to my aunt’s house that she would be moving into. In talking to them, we decided to use prefinished plywood for the carcases and drawers with oak ply skins and frame/flat panel doors. After finishing up with my regul...

First Turnings

1705 days ago by johngoes | 10 comments »

I started turning projects Tuesday on my Jet 1220 lathe. The following are photos of 4 of 5 almost completed projects. I need to finish all of them. I’ve put tung oil on the walnut pieces but they’re not shining like I want so I need to research how to get a shine on top of a tung oil finish. I turned a honey dipper first – no picture. It’s ok but boring. Next I turned the awl followed by the bottle stopper (followed by another that blew off the lathe due to a ca...

Lumber Supply Resource In the Midwest

1714 days ago by Andy Brownell | 7 comments »

I recently came across a supply of lumber from a business here in Cincinnati, OH, Midwest Woodworking. It is owned by a second generation businessman, Frank David. The warehouse he has is probably well over 40,000 sq feet. Spread out across 2 floors are some of the longest complete boules of lumber I’ve ever seen in Sapele, Mahogany and Makore. He lets customers dig through some of the most amazing piles of lumber and pick your favorite boards. One board, or 1,000’s of bd/ft, ...
