Super Duper Sled #1: The Sketchup Plans

09-04-2010 08:25 AM by AttainableApex | 11 comments »

Well here is my latest sled design. This sled is a combination of many sleds that i have seen in the past. One sled that really influenced it, is the super sled by john nixon at eagle lake woodworking. I like the t track on the sled part (the sheet part) but i am going to use real t track. I also liked the t track on top of the fence, which i incorporated, but it stops there. This sled should be able to do just about everything. You can cut 45’s ( blade tilting at 45 deg ) and every o...

Oak Pub Table #4: Glue ups and sanding are finished

09-03-2010 05:25 AM by VinnieP | 1 comment »

I am ever so close to staining. All of the gluing and sanding is done as of now. I’m going to give everything a once over to see if there are any more spots that needed sanding. Otherwise, I’m ready to start staining. I am going to stain the top before attaching it. Here is the post all glued up: This is a close up of the arms. The groove you see was routed in. The buttons I made previously will help connect the top. This is how it looks without the top on: And h...

1950s church pews #2: wonky box too

08-30-2010 01:51 AM by scottb | 5 comments »

the little oak version of its bigger brother: This one started its life as a pew in a Manchester, NH church. (They opted to replace their pews, c. 1950, for chairs that could be rearranged as needed, and contacted the original builder in the Guild of NH woodworkers to donate the wood. I was the fortunate recipient of two 12’ long pews. Original post on the subject. ) When I dismantled them, one of the seats split along a glue line leaving me these to ponder what to do with. Lu...

Mortises-Tenons-and Dado's Oh My.....

08-29-2010 08:14 AM by Bob Kollman | 10 comments »

Three weeks ago I started building a bed for my son the all star werestler. About once every 2 years for the past 6 years, John and his freind Desmond will manage to kill a matress-box spring- and frame. I will not picture the carniage…I figured to build one they can’t break (easily anyway), thinking it wasn’t that much wood (wrong), and it would only take 2 weekends (wrong). Their are 2 stars to this project the first being my mortise jig. The jig is a simpl...

Roll Top Secretaries Desk #1: Tambour is done

08-28-2010 09:34 PM by Jim | 7 comments »

Making the tambour door was quite a project. I’ve made them before using a traditional canvas backing to which the slats are glued. I wanted to do something different on this one. As I was thinking about what to do, Rockler happened to send me an ad for their Tambour Router Bit Set. I ordered them and below is the result as well as some of the difficulties I encountered. This is an overall view of the tambour. Obviously it’s not installed in the desk yet. That’s co...

SAND PAPER SALLY

08-26-2010 02:35 PM by rivergirl | 18 comments »

Every morning when I wake up my whole body hurts. Even the bottom of my feet hurt. I shuffle around the house like Sand Paper Sally. It’s no wonder my floors have no finish left on them. When I die, My tombstone will read: ” Here lies Sand Paper Sally…”
