Cocktail table for my wife's room. #1: Table top underway

09-24-2012 01:34 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 13 comments »

I’m making a small table for my wife’s TV room. All my lumberjocks friends have given me the courage and some knowhow for me to once again stretch the envelope and try the hardest project to this point. Thank you my friends! The room is very small and needs very small end tables and a small cocktail table. I figured that since the room is next to the entryway with the dodecahedron pendant light, I might as well push the theme. On top of that, I own the lumber already which h...

Craftsman Open Panel Shelf #3: My day off.

10-02-2008 07:08 PM by depictureboy | 0 comments »

Well last week I was on-call at work and it was a hell week. So I got to take a full day off as a comp day. YAY!! So I have the stiles and rails cut as well as the shelves(though they aren’t cut to finished length yet.) Today I focused on notching the stiles as needed and constructing the frames. Having gone through this process now, I have some thoughts to share with those who may be interested in trying this out themselves. 1. Lay out your stiles and rails and figure out whic...

My Hidden Treasure Find

10-02-2009 02:44 AM by makingitmine | 4 comments »

I bought an Old oldold dresser/chest for $300.We sanded and discovered after research and tons of comparisons that I have an old chest or drawers made of “wormy” chestnut! Which I believe to be unique from what i have researched. The dresser is not made with screws, nails and or any modern methods of “nailing”. It is old fashioned tongue and grove, wooden “nails” or pegs and very old skeleten key locks for each drawer. It also has a “hidden”...

Around the Shop #7: Deadman Upgrade.

12-17-2012 11:22 PM by Don W | 19 comments »

When I built my bench I didn’t make a deadman. Then one day I needed one and threw this together. A quick and easy but it worked. Not well, and looked like crap so I knew it has to be improved. So what should I use So quit some time ago I got some 2” planks that had been stacked outside for a while. I cleaned them up a bit and stacked them in the attic. So I picked out 2 nice pieces of oak. Ran them through the planer, cut and shaped into a couple of de...

Got one plank up onto the “bench” I now have. i needed to flatten it down, and then rip some leg stock out of it. a cambered iron jackplane took care of all the weather stuff, then a few other planes to smooth the plank out. Laid out for the first blank That is the plank. i had a “new” saw to do the rip cuts with I figured...

oak box #10: coat of wet finish

12-06-2013 03:15 AM by Dan'um Style | 6 comments »

Sanded this one to 150 grit and figured a good wet coat of lacquer might bring out the grain a bit. The rosewood and turquoise together for the photo. Will glue last. The turquoise is from eBay China. Fun stuff.

The evolution of a project

01-07-2008 01:25 AM by Greg Wurst | 8 comments »

One of the first things I did here after finding this site was to post a project I had designed in Sketchup for a new TV stand to match my entertainment center. You can find the original forum post here: I thought it might be interesting if I detailed the evolution of this project to show how listening to good advice can drastically change the way you have something originally designed. We had a large 65” TV we were going to replace with a newe...
