Texas Tech Pool Cue Rack #1: Design

11-15-2013 05:20 PM by ConstructionBoss | 2 comments »

My Brother-in-Law has a pool table in his condo and every time we go over there, the pool cues are laying on a table or on the bar chairs. He also has a table top to convert it to a ping pong, or in their case beer pong table, so the accessories need a place to go. After our last visit, I told my wife maybe I should make him a pool cue rack for Christmas. She liked the idea, but as with anything, I needed to make sure I had her buy in before pumping something out that she might not like. ...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #3: Some Assembly Required...

08-26-2009 09:22 AM by CaptainSkully | 4 comments »

Today, I took the rough parts and managed to achieve a few dry fits. The first one was to make sure the dadoes and tenons fit. The second one was to see how it looked with the bow cut out of the bottom piece and with the pre-finished panels installed. A couple of thoughts: be sure your table saw is waxed properly when cutting tenons like this. It helps if you don’t have to use force to push the piece through the saw. I realized I’m already using some of the stuff I learne...

Drafting Desk #3: Finished Drafting Desk!

05-04-2010 08:51 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 0 comments »

I just finished my drafting/desk and finally brought it into the house this evening. This was a great project to make and there were two new techniques I used on this project, so I learned a lot. As part of the design for this desk I decided that I wanted a slight taper and curve to the legs and I wanted a deep red Mahogany color. After making a template for the legs I contemplated how to cut each leg out, the fastest way would have been to either use a flush trim bit with a router agains...

Day one

03-01-2012 02:11 AM by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...

Carving tips! #1: What a carving looks like before, & after applying the finish!

04-13-2008 10:18 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 23 comments »

A person can spend a lot of time on a carving, but after the final cut with your chisel, you don’t really know what all of the chiseling you’ve done really looks like. You have to choose a finish that will enhance your carving. On some carvings I use a stain, others, just a clear finish, it all depends on the theme, or type of wood you’re using. I’ve chosen some images of my mining scene to show you the difference of before, & after. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #7: Finishing the top and M&T on Front Legs.

06-21-2012 03:09 PM by Mauricio | 28 comments »

Hello friends. After more failure with the wooden screws I decided to order some dust collection attachments for the router and order some more maple dowels. While I waited for those to come in I worked on the top and legs. Here is a quick pictorial tour of my progress. Flattened the top. This is the first real workout for the #7! Worked great. Square edges, stool as board jack. First real workout for the #5 to. I love it, it really gets the work done fast! I decided a 2.5” to...

Entryway Arts & Crafts Mirror & Storage Bench #1: Assigning Parts to Boards

11-12-2012 04:31 AM by Steve Erwin | 2 comments »

This is my first real attempt at considering wood grain for every element of a project. Everything I’ve read about “designing with the grain” suggests that putting this effort in before you begin the project will really help bring the end result to that “fine furniture level.” Enough with the quotes. This was a royal pain in the @ss. I thought I ordered 50% extra wood because I’m new at this sorta thing and I wanted to leave plenty of room for flaws, ...

Entryway Arts & Crafts Mirror & Storage Bench #2: Starting with the Mirror

11-12-2012 04:44 AM by Steve Erwin | 3 comments »

I decided it was too confusing trying to build the bench and the mirror at the same time, so I’m making the mirror first, because it’s simpler. I’ll have less to think about if I get it out of the way. So Step 0: Stop. Go re-sharpen all your tools. This took about a day or so. Longer than normal because I was trying to grind a camber on most of the irons and I’m not very swift at it yet. Step 1: Cut all parts to rough width and rough length. Step 2: Cut al...
