Allyson's Nightstand #3: Finally finished

10-21-2009 09:17 AM by Thomas Keefe | 9 comments »

Allyson’s nightstand is now complete. I had a few problems with the finishing. But other than that I am very happy with the way it turned out. I think that Ally likes it as well. The drawers are made of quarter sawn white oak (QSWO). They feature hand cut through dovetails (my first attempt). The top is also QSWO. I had a lot of trouble with tearout on the top. But based on advice I recieved here I was able to clean it up with a cabinet scraper. In the end, I think it turned ...

Shaped Wooden Hinges #2: The Cutting

10-15-2009 02:39 PM by littlecope | 12 comments »

Yesterday the first installment ended with all the holes having been drilled for the two pairs of hingesIt’s all Scroll Saw work from here! I took a few minutes first to police the area though. It had gotten a little out of hand, even for me!!The work begins with slicing off the waste area which exposes the side drilling.Next is the beginning of the shaping. Side cuts first. These are a bear to cut!! Scroll Saws are not Chop Saws! They’ll do this sort of cutting, through about 1 1...

Shaped Wooden Hinges #1: The Drilling

10-14-2009 06:07 PM by littlecope | 18 comments »

People seemed to like the hinges I made for the last box,so I thought I’d take a few minutes and share how I made them. Like most stories, we begin at the beginning…with the wood!!It’s a leftover scrap of Oak from when I made the two flag cases. It has a groove cut in it, and I’m not going to use that section, but for now I’m going to leave it intact, for two reasons: #1) That side is nice and flat and #2) When I drill in through the side of this piece, I’l...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

10-13-2009 05:44 PM by OregonBurls | 37 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Design of a Static Table Saw

10-12-2009 11:46 PM by k1114n | 5 comments »

The aim of this project is to design and build a static-blade saw that replaces the rotating blade with a japanese handsaw blade which is very thin and removes little wood during the cut leaving a very thin ‘kerf’ (< 0.5mm). Japanese handsaws are well known to cut aggressively and unlike european saws they do so on the pull stroke. Also, the blades in japanese handsaws are designed to be easily removed from the handle. If this blade were fixed at a slight slope away from the in...

It has been a while but I finally finished the living room.The last of the trim has been installed. The baseboard proved to be more challenging than I had hoped for.The house over the last 100+ years has settled so every bit had to be scribed and planed to fit. There are still pieces to build for the room but at least it is finished. I plan on adding a period correct light to finish it off. thanks for looking. Greg Here is the finished product finally…....................

Great Deal On Wood

10-03-2009 12:36 AM by Innovator | 13 comments »

I went to Home Depot today for a few things for a Honey Do project. While I was there I was in the lumber aisle and there was a truck of wood piled up (more like thrown on) with orange paint on the ends. I asked an associate how much is each piece and he said they only sell it by the skid (some HD will sell it by the piece). Ok so I asked “How much for the skid”, he said $1.01 per piece. Ok so I am interested how much for the skid then. He went over to it and bent down and started to cou...
