Quartersawn White Oak Display Cabinet #3: More assembly.

04-07-2011 09:12 PM by Brian024 | 1 comment »

In this quick video, I glue up the base, reinforce the miters, and attach the cabinet to the base. Due to my router being down, progress will be slow until I get it fixed which should be in a few days.

My "Bucket List" #4: Segmant 3: Finally finished with the table.

04-07-2011 08:06 PM by therookie | 4 comments »

Well I can cross the table off my bucket list. I am extremley happy with the way it turned out for me being a novice woodworker and all. Here is the completed table with the carvings and the finish put on. Now I was going to carve the pecans in but I thought they would show up better if I burned them in so that is what I did. When I was making the center pedestal, I thought of trying to turn one but decided against it because I have never turned anything. So I made a Hexagon Bas...

1700 lbs Black Oak Burl

04-07-2011 05:31 PM by OregonBurls | 15 comments »

Just started cutting into this burl. Incredible! I am not sure if I am going to cut table slabs or block it up for turners. Time will tell. Enjoy! I need to ask a favor of my friends here. Would you go to Face Book and do a search for “Oregon Burls” and Become my friend there. It would help lots. ThanksGregwww.OregonBurls.com PS Check out my new Website!!!

Oak Dresser Restoration #2: Finished at last!

04-06-2011 02:33 AM by Mark D. | 2 comments »

So after spending 820 days working 26 hours a day, 8 days a week on restoring this dresser it’s finally DONE! Ok, so it certainly was not a priority project and got very sporadic time devoted to it over the last 2 years but what a chore it was… I think it’s far easier to build something from scratch than to restore an older piece. As you can see from the first couple of pictures, there is a slight cup in the top which wasn’t able to be straightened out and you can s...

Adding leg levelers and casters to a table

04-05-2011 08:51 PM by Bhaupt | 3 comments »

The objective here is to have 1 1/2” of leveling adjustability as well as being able to transport table on casters. The way I decided to do this was to have ladder casters extend downward with toggle clamps during transit. For the smaller tables I used 5/16 rods attached to a 2” wheel. For the 800# table I used 3/4” x 4” lg. ss standoffs for the ladder portion attaching to dual 2” casters. I needed to provide laterial support for the ladder/standoff...

Today was a day of giving. A fellow lj William gave me an intire truck bed of future furniture. Lets start with the 80 board feet of 4/4 red oak. Then this grand load of walnut, of all shapes and sizes. Then there was some spalted and wormy ohhhh something will have to investigate a little more. But It is beautiful. Then some more small sizes and large dowels of mahogany.There was one gem of apple. Ok the oak still gets the “what am I going to build now” juices flo...

Antique End Grain Cutting Board

04-01-2011 05:50 PM by Roger Clark aka Rex | 15 comments »

As many of my fellow LJs must know, a huge amount of decorative cutting board projects have been posted here and they are mostly very decorative and one would hesitate you actually use the item as a cutting board in order to preserve the surface. Most likely they would not be used for cutting, but as a decorative item or a wall hanging like a not hit dart board. I did a lot of research into cutting boards and found original designs listed in a medieval parchment at the Smithsonian. These ...

A blank pallet painted

04-01-2011 01:17 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 14 comments »

Probably better in Home refurbers but I’m on LJ’s so the project is here and under blog because it’s not a specific woodworking project. Some of my acquaintances on LJ’s have been asking where I’ve been. Well I’ve been lurking lately and I’ve been busy for about 10 weeks. A young couple in the area had the shell for a house put up and asked me to finish off the interior. It was basically a blank slate. They had the sheetrocking done and someone ha...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #1: Basic construction

03-30-2011 10:39 PM by superstretch | 6 comments »

Its been a while since I’ve posted anything project-related. My time has been consumed with work-work and not wood work. So my wife has this table which she moved into the house when we got married. I can’t stand the thing and it is constantly being bumped, knocked over, and hit into the wall. Its ugly, veneered, and flimsy so I’ve tried everything short of burning it to get it out of there. Finally my wife told me to make something to replace it or get lost. My...
