Arts and Crafts Style Panel Bed #1: Panels, Rails & Stiles for the Frame and Panel Construction

1906 days ago by John Nixon | 8 comments »

I’m working on building an Arts and Crafts style Panel bed. The bed is inspired by the Stickley Bed pictured below. There’s three videos in the series so far, and I hope to have more out soon. The quartersawn white oak grain on this wood I have looks really good in person, and I’m excited to see the bed come together. For measured drawings and in-process pictures, you can visit the project page at Eagle Lake Woodworking:

Finishing problems

1907 days ago by Tim Suess | 15 comments »

I am hoping someone can help me with this. Recently when I have been finishing my projects I have noticed little black spots form on the wood. I figure it was mold that had grown on the wood since my shop in our basement. So the next time I finished a project I put the dehumidifier in the room and used wood fresh from the lumber yard. The same thing happened!!! Does anyone know what this is or have run into it before?

Ronin Woodworking #5: Finishing my TSDC contest project (the drawer)

1907 days ago by spaids | 2 comments »

All thats left now is making a drawer. I have some oak on my rack but I also have some oak flooring that is plenty big enough for the small drawer. That finish is very hard. Its “special” and you should resaw this stuff off before using it. Don’t run it through your jointer or planer. After I slice the finish off with my bandsaw, milling this stuff was very easy. I cut them a hair long and to the correct width. These pieces are 1/4” thick. I’m...

I got a change to work on the sideboard today so I glue up the face frames and added pocket hole screws to the face frame. I also glue the face frame to the legs and added a shelf on the bottom.

Ronin Woodworking #4: Holey blog post!

1908 days ago by spaids | 1 comment »

I know that I do not yet have the skill to place these holes with the necessary precision to have the 14 or so dowels line up between two pieces. I can however do this well enough once so that any small discrepancies in the layout will be virtually undetectable to the average human. With that in mind I made a template. But like I said, I’m not that good yet so first I made a template to help me make a template. The narrow piece is a hole guide. Those two holes are 1/4” ...

Allyson's Nightstand #1: Introduction

1922 days ago by Thomas Keefe | 3 comments »

My five year old daughter Allyson was complaining one night that she had no place to set things when she went to bed. As I was getting ready to begin a woodworking class I offered to build her a nightstand. She enthusiastically accepted. I showed her some pictures of different types of nightstands that I thought I might be able to build. Immediately, she began giving me requirements including that it had to have two drawers and a shelf on the bottom. I have been working on it now for a little...

Shot Glass Display Cabinet #3: Time to finish...

1931 days ago by scopemonkey | 1 comment »

This update’s for you Mary K. The woodworking is done and the hardware is in place. I used some “no mortise” hinges I got from our local Woodcraft store. The Woodcraft salesman talked me into them but I don’t think I will use them again. Although there’s no chopping out a mortise, they do require a fair amount of tweaking to get the up/down and left/right alignment just right. I would rather chop out mortises. My glass will be ready next week so now it is t...

Back on that Horse - Arts & Crafts Mantle

1934 days ago by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

So, today I did my first woodworking in the shop since I cut my finger off. I installed the splitter on my table saw. It only took five minutes. As my fellow woodworkers know, it’s a huge pain. It’s in the way when you try to measure the width of every cut (so I’m resorting to using the tape on the saw), and it can only be used for cuts greater than 1-1/2” wide (otherwise the push stick won’t fit through. I’ve yet to see how it works with the dado blad...

I’M DONE…I’M DONE!!! I finally finished my sewing table. Here are the final pictures in it’s new home. This thing is HEAVY!! All that oak! So, the pictures show it completely closed up, opened with the sewing machine up and open with the sewing machine down. I am really happy I finally finished.
