#1 Phillipine mahogany & bubinga box, how I made it.

11-29-2010 02:24 AM by TheHarr | 3 comments »

These are my original design ideas for making my jewelry boxes. These diagrams may be a little confusing because I did not intended for them to be published. You guys are so nice, I had no choice but to share. This design was prevously used for making cigar humidors. I don’t have good pictures of them—sorry. I have lots of detailed instructions for every step to make this box. Just ask and I’ll add more to this blog. The rough cut diagram shows the sequence t...

Project Preview

11-27-2010 09:50 PM by Dave S | 4 comments »

My next project is ambitious! Here’s an in-progress shot of the back of a mission style desk made of red oak. The kicker? The middle of the desk tilts up to become a drafting table with ratcheting positions! Skill I’m learning this project? Doweling pieces together. (Though this will mostly be pocketholes) structure is complete. Currently working on sanding, then finishing. Definitely looking for advice on finishing red oak. This will be a heavy-use piece, so the finish need...

The New Workbench #1: Description of Bench

11-26-2010 07:42 PM by therookie | 6 comments »

So I started getting into woodworking and bought a hand plane. So as soon as I got home I wanted to use it, so I put a peice of wood in my vise and started planeing. Five minutes later, my bench was four feet farther forward than it originally started. So I moved it back and kept going. Well I have done that for the past year and a half, and have decided enough is enough. So while I was in school I designed a Work Bench. Here are the specs on the bench:1. The bench is four feet deep, six feet...

Greene & Greene Jewelry Armoire #1: Design in Sketchup

11-26-2010 07:42 PM by Alan S | 5 comments »

Since I began woodworking (not that long ago), my wife has wanted me to make her a jewelry armoire. The Greene and Greene style really appeals to me, so I thought I’d give it a try. Here is my concept I’ve been refining for a few months now. The sides will open for necklace storage. The top will also open with a mirror. For those of you familiar with Darrell Peart, and Darrell himself, you might notice his obvious influence. I couldn’t post this here withou...

Puppet Theater #1: Designing the Puppet Theater

11-25-2010 09:24 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 1 comment »

The other night my wife’s best friend’s daughter stopped by to help out with the kids while we ran some errands and completed some chores. She showed them a new game. They spent the evening in the basement hiding behind a blanket draped over a couple chairs, putting on puppet shows with the numerous dolls and stuff animals scattered about the basement. They’ve been putting on puppet shows nearly every day since…which sparked an idea for a Christmas present/project: ...

Making a Violin #4: Cutting the 4mm edge to size

11-22-2010 07:26 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

The wood shaped to the line. If you check back a few posts there were two lines. My ‘final’ line is what you see remaining. Here’s a jig I made to cut the edges to size. Does anyone see what ‘the problem’ is in this picture? Think hard… It’s a 1hp Craftsman router with a 3/8” straight bit. I call it a ‘face off’ bit, but I could be wrong? The jig part is the device holding the router steady. It’s 1/8” alu...
