Sketch This! #2: Re: Entryway Bench

01-25-2010 05:04 PM by John Steffen | 4 comments »

Here is my second attempt at designing an entryway bench. The top is similar to the first, but I’ve changed to to include less angle cuts. I’m still very fresh to woodworking and while I don’t doubt my ability to properly measure and cut angles, I would rather focus on my joinery and finishing techniques than worry about angles. So, I’ve straightened out the legs, added stretchers across the bottom of the legs, and added a shelf of sorts for shoes and whatever e...

The sketchup v1 for the table

01-24-2010 06:11 PM by JSN | 8 comments »

Hi folks I’m totally new to this site and still not quite sure where to posts news. This one is about my future outfeed table and I’ve only now finished the sketchup for it. Still have small problem with it and I’m definitely curious about your comments beore I go further. As I explained in my intro, I’m in the process of setting up my shop and it’ll be very close to what’s shown in a FineWoodworking article by Matthew Teague titled : “Smart sho...

Designing For Children- There's No Place Like Home

01-19-2010 06:34 AM by Benji Reyes | 1 comment »

MONDAY, JANUARY 18, 2010Designing For Children- There’s No Place Like HomePublished article: Homestyle Magazine (November/December 2009 Issue) It takes a while for me to really appreciate a beautiful home. The exterior and interior design of the structure (or as I call them. The “picture“ and the “frame,” respectively), as well as the landscaping, are all visible and tactile elements of architecture. The sound of children’s laughter and the spontaneous interaction between parents and...

The making of a Telescope Eyepiece box #1: Telescope Eyepiece box

01-15-2010 05:06 PM by Dennis Fletcher | 1 comment »

I have been commisioned by a young man who is an ameture astronomer to build for him an eyepiece box. That is, a box that will hold all of his eyepieces, his filters and his maps without any damage to the pieces. He travels with his telescopes every year to SC, I believe, so it needs to be secure enough to not open up on him and to withstand an accidental tumble or two. I have had to learn how to use a dovetail jig and have done pretty well with it. However, due to my lack of proper pla...

Learning Something: Workbench #1: The Planning

01-14-2010 11:31 PM by John Steffen | 3 comments »

Planning a project is often my favorite part (aside the finished product). Thus there will probably be many many more plans/drawings on here than work updates. However, this project is going to be seen through to completion as I need a workbench in my shop for future projects I probably won’t finish. I’ve scoured books, magazines, and the internet to come up with a good vision of what I think I need in my bench. My current shop is 10’x20’ so space is at a p...

Office printer cupboard #2: Small bits of progress at last

01-08-2010 07:15 AM by timrowledge | 0 comments »

The top and sides were glued up and trimmed a couple of days ago and today I was able to cut the dados and sliding dovetail slots. Of course, I screwed up one of the (supposedly stopped) dados and will need to insert a little block for the, err, stop. I had almost forgotten how much mess routing a dado can make. I made the drawers to a variation of the intended design after discovering that even the slightest deviation between the holes for the shelving wires and the actual wires was enoug...

For the last few days at the end of last year ….LOL…I was very busy… I was designing a recessed base for my Lazy Larrys..I have just taken the time to post this….To start I have cut a circle of 5/8” plywood to mount the bearing.. this is roughly 300 mm or 12” in diameter as seen to the left in the first pic.This is accomplished by using the router to drill a hole in the centre.. the same size as the pin in the table. The hole is dropped over the pin and th...
