The box so far:- I’ve dimensioned the lumber and cut the miters- I cut the lid and bottom panels to size, cut rabbets into the lid, and glued suede cloth to the inside of the bottom panel and veneered a piece of white oak to the outside of the bottom panel- I inlaid the bog oak square and cut the oval for the red jasper cab- I glued up the box That takes us to this… You can see some of the nail and worm holes in the sides and lid; I could have left that out of the design, bu...
This is from another blog site of mine from a project from last year, but it seems so appropriate here I thought I’d port it over. I’m working on a set of shelves for Caitlin, making them out of 3/4” red oak plywood, blah blah blah. The end result, when done, will be a second set of shelves to mirror the set on the other side of the fireplace. So the plywood is ripped, banded, and ready for final cutting, then assembly. And this is where the procrastination kicks in....
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...
Today, I bit the bullet and tried out my 45 degree lock-miter bit to make the four-sided quarter-sawn white oak 4” x 4” legs. I outsmarted myself by trimming the edges at 45 degrees. Unbeknownst to me, the router bit needs all the meat it can grab to make the “tongues”. As a result, I have very little “lock” in my lock-miter. I have just enough to register the corner, but I’ve lost about half of my glue surface. Sigh… The good news is that...
Well I can cross the table off my bucket list. I am extremley happy with the way it turned out for me being a novice woodworker and all. Here is the completed table with the carvings and the finish put on. Now I was going to carve the pecans in but I thought they would show up better if I burned them in so that is what I did. When I was making the center pedestal, I thought of trying to turn one but decided against it because I have never turned anything. So I made a Hexagon Bas...
We cut this tree down in Feb and just got the video done. We slabed the burl and the logs in to counter top blanks and table blanks. We used my 088 stihl with a 36” and 72” bar. Also for the slabbing used the the 60” lucas mill slabber. The pic below the vid are 12’ slabs of the log. Enjoy and thanks for watchingGregwww.oregonburls.com
I posted a picture of a Craftsman Style Frame i made and i thought if anyone was interested, i have a two part video series of how i did it. The main jointery is the use of a half lap. It’s a simple and yet strong joint. I decided to show how to make it using both power tools and hand tools. Hope you enjoy it.chad stanton
My daughter asked me to recommend the best way to make a cabinet to enclose the two dog crates that she uses for her small dogs (a white West Highland Terrier and a Scotty). She found this on the net. Her dogs are small and she doesn’t have room for something this large, so I used Sketchup and came up with this design. It is 58” Wide, 24” Deep, and 32” High. I bought some cabinet grade oak plywood and I will use white oak for the face frame and the drawer...
I got good results with the stain today!
