Coffee Table - Red Oak & Padauk #2: Legs and Apron

04-16-2012 05:44 PM by Mosquito | 2 comments »

I’m back! I got another days worth of work done on Saturday, while the weather was nice I cut the legs from oak 4×4’s using a handsaw: I cut all 4 legs, then I used my router to make part of the tenons on the Apron boards: This was messy… And it looked like I was eating Cheetos all day and wiping my hands on my shorts: My first Mortice and Tenon! Not the best, but it’s at least a decent flat fit All the tenons are done, and 2 legs have the Mor...

Coffee Table - Red Oak & Padauk #1: Table Top

04-16-2012 03:50 PM by Mosquito | 2 comments »

I’m in the process of building a coffee table for my apartment. I’m using Red Oak and Padauk for this. It’s going to be a relatively basic basic table. It was an extremely nice day for this in March. Yes, I started this in March… outside… in shorts… in MN… did I mention my distaste for this “winter”? Anyway, I started by using my [home made] router table to shave a pair of 3/4×11.25” boards down to 11” wide to use ...

The past couple of days I have been working hard to make progress on the helicopter. In the past two days I have make the anti-tourque peddles, more details in the interior, and finished the the rotor blades along with attatching them to the rotor head. Here are the anti-tourque peddles,every part is walnut and the peddles were turned on the lathe: In the interior I added the instrument panel, the cyclic control, a bunch of switches on the roof of the cockpit (which you can not see ...

Review of Tropical Exotic Hardwoods of Latin America

03-12-2012 02:08 AM by jusfine | 6 comments »

As we were taking in some rays in the Palm Springs area last month, I had the urge to see some lumber or tools, and realized it was not a long drive to Carlsbad California to the Tropical Exotic Hardwoods supplier. Their website is here It was relatively easy to find with GPS, and the warehouse was large and well lit. There were a few customers while we were there (about an hour), but it was not really busy – it was a week day around lunch time. They had ...

Lap Desk #1: started with a pile of wood

02-12-2012 11:42 PM by JoeyG | 13 comments »

As you may know, I am currently working on a bookcase job. While it is only 6ft on one side and 8 on the other with a 45 cab in the corner. It is still big for my shop. It is the first cabinets I have done in a couple of years and is very enjoyable project so far. I have been moving this pile of wood around for 2 weeks and I am over it. There is a little bit of everything there. A chunk of padauk, walnut, rosewood, and some zebrawood. I think there are some others, but do...

Model Bell 407 helicopter project #1: Ready to build!

01-08-2012 08:36 AM by Ryan Haasen | 3 comments »

My Dad and I made a trip to the Black Forest Company today and picked up the supplies for the helicopter project. The body will be out of cherry, the main rotors will be wenge and other details will be other exotic woods such as padauk and yellowheart. This evening I laminated the sheets of cherry into a 7” by 7” by 27” (length) blank. Tomorrow the new bandsaw is going to get quite the work out cutting this baby out. Hopefully all goes well.

Padauk-How to say it?

12-30-2011 11:49 PM by woodworkerscott | 8 comments »

I guessed Padauk was pronounced “padook”. I thought I better check out the correct pronunciation to not sound foolish. I did a quick search on the internet and the source said it is pronounced “padowk”. Works for me. But, this morning I asked my hardwood supplier about getting some “padowk” and he said, “You mean, padook?” Yeah, whatever. :)I researched again and found three different results. They are (phonetically stated): Padook, (Paduke)P...

Building the shop #5: Floor Plan for Shop - just a guess-timate

12-21-2011 07:42 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 10 comments »

Quick post here – 0400 comes awfully early… Here is my rough drawing of how I will lay out my shop. NOTES: ShopVac will be under the bench ShopSmith is questionable at this point, but it’s the only jointer I have right now, so it stays for now Brown rectangles with thick black border are workbenches Restricted area is immovable, lost space The purple area is the lazy susan that will hold the 4 tools as noted If you’ve got ideas, recommendations or ...

Ambrosia-birdseye maple #12: The finish is nearly done

12-15-2011 04:57 PM by JoeyG | 5 comments »

Sometimes it can be difficult to recall the steps on takes and where I start and stop on this blog. I also tend to switch steps around sometimes depending on how the project is going. My next step after the first coat of poly on the lids and sides was to flip the box, put 2 coats of poly on, sanding with 400 grit paper in between coats and applying my label. I haven’t invested in a branding iron yet so my solution is to use double sided carpet tape and a business card. I will find...

12-15-2011 04:14 PM by JoeyG | 1 comment »

I thought you guys might like to get a early look at the peace turtle with some finish on it. This is one coat of poly. I still have a few more coats to go, but with a little luck and no runs it will be finished today and I’ll get the official post up in the projects section. Thanks for joining me with these inlays. I hope to see what everyone else does with this type of inlay.
