The drill box #2: Working on a bottom for the box

08-15-2015 07:53 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Ok, started off checking the layouts.. All four sides together and square? Check! Motivator in place? Check. trimmed the bottom panel. Trimmed two pieces of JEFF’S Maple, jointed the edges, and clamped them up in the now empty clamps. Then stowed them out of the way for awhile… Ok, back to the Oak stuff. Got the bottom panel all nice and square. Clamped it down to the bench, time to cut a rebate or four… Numbah Wun! took a bit to set it just right. ...

Church Lectern #2: This is what I was thinking of....

03-26-2008 02:02 PM by pashley | 8 comments »

I did these “sketches” in Bryce to get an idea for proportions. I like what happened here. Problem is, in this sketch, the 4 main posts are 44 inches high, and my real life ones are 33, which is really the best height. However, I made the 3 raised panels to the specs in the drawing – 33” tall by 30” wide – way too big. The thing is way too big, when I tried to visualize it by laying out the posts and panels. Looks like I’ll have to take a good 8 inche...

Old Classroom Door Restoration Project

07-19-2009 12:40 PM by DrTebi | 8 comments »

- – - – - – - – -Update:I just realized I never posted pictures of the finished door. After reading a few books on finishing, I decided to use Linseed Oil, Shellac, and Wax. I like the fact that these products are all very “natural” and have been used for centuries. And I am really please with the results. After one application of Linseed Oil (boiled) I mixed the shellac myself (there is a place here in San Francisco called Sinopia Pigments that sells...

Desk Build #6: Getting the Ole' Fisheye

09-15-2010 06:42 AM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

. I have this desk all ready to get lacquered and man o’ man how I love the smell of lacquer. I get all ready to start my process and begin to shoot the desk. I do this this way most of the time. I shoot a coat of lacquer sealer let it rest an hour or so and then sand with 600 grit paper. I then start my top coat, I do this step pretty much the same as the sealer. When I go back to check my work about 1/2 hour later the top has all of these bubbles in it. What the @#*^ is this??? ...

Hurricane Irene wood casualties will be put to good use, Need some wood ID and tips

08-31-2011 12:00 PM by jfk4032 | 3 comments »

After being out of power for 30 some hours and bailing over 300 gallons of water from my sump pump well, I did get an unexpected surprise yesterday from Irene. I went to the county dump to dispose of most of our spoiled food and saw the sign for wood dumping area ahead. I drove over there and met several nice folks in my county here in MD who were disposing of trees that Irene took down. I’ve wanted to start resawing wood, even recently buying a riser kit and some new band saw blades...

Mom's Quilt Rack #2: Test Piece

12-01-2009 06:46 AM by imelmer | 0 comments »

Since I haven’t done much woodwork since high school other than Pinewood Derby and making pens, I decided to make a test piece. I picked up some pine and after the boards were planed, I did the basic layout. I still have a lot of work to do, but I have the pieces cut out. I was debating how to do the jointery, but I decided to try pocket screws and glue. Maybe I’ll get a couple of pics when I get the holes drilled. For now, here are some pics of the work so far. ...

Baby Tender #2: Skeg done

04-21-2010 05:07 AM by mpmitche | 0 comments »

I cut out the skeg and rockers about a week ago with some hand saws. I now have the skeg finished up and will be adding it to the bottom of the tender soon. The rockers are getting close but it is slow going finishing the curves off with rasps and files.

Coffee Table Build #9: Top

12-05-2014 12:56 AM by RoadHogg | 5 comments »

Ironically, the first thing I did for this project was to glue up the huge 42” square top…over-sized of course. A long time later, I pulled it out and began to put on the finishing touches. I bought a “Thumbnail” router bit from Lee Valley and I ran that around the edges. Of course, I worked a long time to make sure the top was square etc. I built an extended router base to help stabilize the router while routing the edge detail (thanks Mark!). I ran a 1/4...

A Beginner's Progress #6: The Finished Product

04-13-2008 12:17 AM by jstewart | 3 comments »

Based on the size, I plan to use this more as an end table than a nightstand, its original intent. I’m fairly happy with the way things came out. I’ve posted it as my first LumberJocks project. So, without further ado… I have a short series of project photos on Flickr. Here’s a link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/joshuastewart/sets/72157600298401235/
