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...

Sketchup Mission TV Console / Entertainment Center

03-26-2011 01:30 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I am finally getting proficient with Google Sketchup version 8. Here is my version of a craftsman style TV console. It is halfway done at this point, however the Sketchup program was very helpful in getting the proportions pleasing to the eye. Especially shaping and sizing the corbels. I printed the corbel component, and enlarged them to scale. By simply taping the pattern on my workpiece I was easily able to cut and sand the corbels. Cheers
