Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

08-05-2010 02:14 PM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...

New "Antique" Lathe Stand #4: Out with the old, in with the,.. well,.. much older.

07-26-2010 12:05 AM by scottb | 1 comment »

After the final phase of glue up for the legs, putting the top on was a piece of cake. Clamp, countersink, screw, (so it can be adjusted if ever necessary)¬†and this puppy is ready for work. Well, it’s ready for it’s close up,... then work (or play) depending on your perspective. Goodbye workmate,¬†Hello, nurse! I left in that metal plate on the ends. For looks and added weight. Plus it makes a handy chisel holder! As you can see by the outsid...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #52: Almost There

07-25-2010 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I slept in a bit on account that it is Sunday. I actually woke up at my usually time and rolled over and had ‘one more sleep’. It felt good because it seems that it has been a really long time since I have done that. I think that sometimes the mind set of slowing down helps actually makes us more productive. I don’t quite understand it or know how it works, but it seems that way anyway. It feels like a bit of autumn this morning. I know people aren’t quite ready f...

The second piece of old fashioned book binding equipment (nearly 2” thick Maple!) going into this project: Removing metal hardware before running through the tablesaw. The mortising for it, done almost entirely by drill. threaded metal rods run through both ends, cross grain. for rigidity? structural integrity? aid in glue up? Didja guess #2? Ok, so I knew this one had a split in it, but I didn’t know how bad. Luckily the plan was to rip off both edges, lik...

Computer Desk #2: A few pictures...

07-24-2010 11:27 PM by Scott G. | 4 comments »

Ok, it’s been awhile, but here I go with a few pictures of what I have done so far. Mind you, it’s far into the crafting of this desk, but everything will be clear I hope! First, the desk in its upside down assembly set up. It’s upside down because my wooden floor in the shop is not level, and it’s not easy to put the pocket screws into this thing by having to shim everything. Shim the workbench and be done with it! Next, the axes are put on top and measured...
