Shaving Horse

02-26-2011 09:33 PM by WhiskeyWaters | 6 comments »

I had a class canceled this week for 2 days, giving me 3 hrs to do some workshop building. This shaving horse was built from scrap 2×4s, a few 4×4 oak posts and a broom handle. Lag bolts connect the legs, and the yoke & axle of the swing arm was whittled down to the correct size and fitted with pressure/friction. I’ve never used/taught shaving horses before so this weekend and Monday will be spent in the throes of research. I’ll be putting up a build post...

The Etaux from Old Salem’s Shop (Article from Woodworking Magazine)

02-25-2011 02:44 AM by Tinnocker | 9 comments »

I was reading my RSS feeds the other day and came across this article in Woodworking magazine. As soon as I saw it I knew that I had to make one for myself! I have a Bessey vise that I got for a few dollars at the Columbus Flea market here in NJ. You know the old saying, you get what you pay for? Well I did! Needless to say it still served some kind of purpose for me, I tuned it up and made the best of it.When I looked at the article in WW online zne I started to get excited and w...

Outdoor Harvest Table

02-25-2011 01:30 AM by BenBen | 0 comments »

I’m planning to build an outdoor harvest table. Design is quite simple, timeless, chunky and large table (quick sketch below… not exactly my skill). In Ottawa, Canada so weather will be an issue. I’d like to use quarter sawn oak but so far I’ve yet to find a source for the materials I’ll need. Materials may even require a trip to Montreal (assuming that they have a better selection than I do locally). Would love to find redwood to do this with… I have a sou...

Church Clock Project #6: Open For Service

02-24-2011 08:27 PM by William | 8 comments »

Lord bless the UPS guy!Ok. Maybe that was just a tad in poor taste, but I was so happy that my clock and new plans arrived. I was not happy that I failed to read the part about, “battery NOT included”. I started to town to get one since it is an odd sized type N battery. I stopped for gas though, and after getting over the sticker shock of the thirty cent increase in gas since I filled up my wife’s Jeep yesterday, I made the decision that the clock doesn’t actually hav...

Church Clock Project #5: It'll Be Ready For Service By Sunday

02-24-2011 06:17 AM by William | 9 comments »

First things first today, I had to finish cutting the lower side gable trim.Here’s a view of the side gable trim pieces in place.Here’s the front side gable trim. Also, this is where my day started getting uh, umm, interesting. I think that’s a good description of it.I cut these two pieces, but for some reason they were too short. It took a lot of head scratching for me to figure out how and why. When I done the roof, I didn’t follow the plans. Since I had built this b...

Church Clock Project #4: It's In The Details

02-23-2011 06:22 AM by William | 5 comments »

Since I had a very productive day and have lots to show, I’m just going to jump right in.Gables, dormers, doghouses. I’m not sure what to call them. I call them dormers. I was told today though that they are called gables. In this photo though, on the left I guess you could call my jig to build them. It is just a simple square that is, well, square. The two sides of each gable has a 45 degree bevel across the top, a 35 degree bevel down the back, and a 20 something degree angle go...

Church Clock Project #3: Raising The Roof

02-22-2011 06:02 AM by William | 4 comments »

This first photo today is one I forgot to put in the last blog. I wanted to show the doors. I really am not quite sure of the significance of this particular design on a church door. It is what is on the pattern though and I think it looks nice. I had debated on changing it to something different, maybe a cross. Maybe I will on the next one, but I decided to leave it alone on this one though. The first order of business today was to add supports for the roof. I decided to use much beefier sup...
