52 Weeks #4: What a long Week....

01-31-2011 03:22 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

Greeting to anyone that is reading. It has been a long week. Due to a major incident at work I got very little time in the shop this week. I did however manage to demo an entire room at work so maybe that will count as some extra time. I did get enough time to complete what I was working on on Sunday when I got the call from work. A coworker had this little Chrstmas type tree that she liked to display, unfortunatly she had bumped into it and knocked it over knocking it off of the base. The or...

My new Roubo #10: Twisty stretchers, sore shoulder

01-29-2011 09:56 AM by JasonD | 0 comments »

After a very busy week, I finally got some time in the shop tonight to start on the stretchers. The 4 boards that make up the two short end stretchers were fairly flat to start. It didn’t take too much work to get them flattened and glued up. I injured my right shoulder early this week. So, I was pretty excited to find those boards to be flat to begin with. Well, that excitement was short lived. The boards for the long stretchers were twisted pretty bad. Not too bad to toss in the sc...

Home Depot guy just wouldn't listen

01-27-2011 08:56 AM by Russ | 14 comments »

So I went to Home Depot to get a pine rod for a project. It was marked $1.57/lf. Cut what I needed and went to the front. Young guy (maybe 18 or so) says “ohh it’s missing the tag”. I tell him it’s 1 1/4” rod but he can’t find it in the computer. I tell him it was marked $1.57/lf he says “yeah I know”. So he calls that area tells them “I have wood rod maybe an inch in diameter” again I tell him it’s 1 1/4”. He say...

My new Roubo #9: Leg tenons done

01-24-2011 05:56 AM by JasonD | 3 comments »

I got the leg tenons cut throughout the week and got them trued up tonight. I don’t own a shoulder plane, but I have a Stanley rabbet plane that did the job. I’m going to start working on the stretchers tomorrow; short ones first, then the long ones. I can’t believe that I’m finally getting close to being able to assemble the main structure. Don’t know how much shop time I’ll get over this next week. One of my students has started scheduling regul...

New Yankee Blanket Chest #10: Painted and Finished

01-24-2011 05:38 AM by HungryTermite | 8 comments »

I put 4 coats of flat dove white paint on the outside and 4 coats of satin wipe-on poly on the inside, except for the cedar on the bottom which is unfinished. I think the flat paint was a bad idea. It seems to get dirty if I even look at it funny. Some day I will probably use this chest as a test run for doing some stencil work so maybe that will cover up or blend in some of the dirt. Overall view: View with the lid open: View showing the cedar lining: I also used two of these ...

Lauren's Bed #1: A Start to the Modified Captain's Bed for Lauren

01-19-2011 06:57 AM by Jesse Schutt | 0 comments »

I’ve been slowly working on building a modified captain’s bed for my 3 year old daughter. I thought I’d document some of the progress here. It’s been a fun project so far and my wife is itching for me to get it completed. This is the initial concept that I came up with after seeing a similar bed in a local furniture store. Lauren’s room isn’t very large, so having some storage under the bed is really a bonus. Lauren outgrew her crib and small b...

My new Roubo #8: Starting on the joinery

01-18-2011 06:09 AM by JasonD | 5 comments »

Because I train and teach Gracie Jiu-Jitsu between 4 – 6 nights a week, I don’t get as much time in the shop as I’d like some times. We had a 3-day weekend this past weekend, but I wasn’t able to get any time in the shop on Saturday. Our head instructor came down from Hattiesburg for a seminar and that is an all-day affair with us all going out to eat afterwards and spending the evening hanging out around a fire in the back yard. I did get to put a good bit of time ...

New Yankee Blanket Chest #9: Almost Finished

01-16-2011 10:42 AM by HungryTermite | 3 comments »

After the top dried I trimmed it to final length and width and set it on the chest. I can’t seem to get the camera set right to get a representative photo. It doesn’t really look right if I used a flash and turning the flash off doesn’t seem to help much. I need to practice more. I put 3 coats of wipe-on poly on the inside of the chest and on the bottom of the lid. I also cut and fit some cedar panels for the bottom. All that is left to do is paint the outs...

Making a Violin #5: Carving the plates

01-16-2011 08:21 AM by RonPeters | 20 comments »

Ok, I’ve been busy with life and could only get to the violin as weather permitted, that is until I insulated the garage and installed an IR heat lamp which takes the chill off the air. This is the maple back. I’ve carved guides using templates I made out of aluminum. After aligning the guides to the plate surface it’s a simple matter of carving away the excess and blending. There are 6 templates. 1 through 5 are horizontal left to right with the last spanning the length....

New Yankee Blanket Chest #8: Put a lid on it

01-15-2011 04:05 AM by HungryTermite | 1 comment »

I had to purchase additional wood for the top because after 8 months in my garage the construction pine I purchased was warped too badly to use. So I got it all planed and jointed and then I decided I needed more practice with tongue and groove joints so I cut them on the table saw for the long edges as well as the breadboard ends. They were the best ones yet! I have a tough time getting the tongues the right length so there is no gap so this time I left the tongues a hair longer and used ...
