Asian Inspired Sofa Table #1: Design...

10-25-2009 10:27 AM by azwoodman | 5 comments »

My wife and I need a little hall/sofa table and I want to build something so here we go… Here’s a SketchUp picture of what I have come up with so far… I am thinking solid wood for the legs and aprons then two sheets of 3/4 ply glued together with some solid wood edge banding for the top and lower shelf… (Wood choices might be: all walnut, all mahogany, or maybe wenge legs with a contrasting species for the rest of the piece.) The edges of the top and and o...

How to find great figure wood other than Burl

10-24-2009 05:33 PM by OregonBurls | 8 comments »

This is in addition to the burl blog I put on a week ago. Thank you for all the reads.This is to the best of my knowledge and I am still learning.I have found crazy figure in tree crotches. A tree crotch is where two branches come together. It is usually the piece that fire wood people don’t want because it doesn’t slit. That is because the crotch is the hardest part of the tree and the grain in going in different directions. It’s where you get what is called “feather”. “Haring bone, r...

I am currently finishing an education class so that I can teach Technology Education (shop class). My last assignment was to create a project that checks for the understanding of the previous lessons. I chose to do my lessons on shop tool safety and usage so it only fits to do a project to show off those new safety skills. I know you all are experts here ;) so I thought you might enjoy picking this apart! I created a simple project that uses the majority of common shop power tools. Her...

Speakers

10-16-2009 04:29 AM by bunkie | 0 comments »

I’ve been building speakers for most of my life. It’s what led me into woodworking. Sadly, I don’t have a lot to show for it. I’ve either sold or given away every set I’ve ever built with only one exception, the set I’m currently running. Even worse, from a woodworking perspective, they’re pretty sad. Made entirely of MDF and finished with rattle-can stone finish paint, they aren’t pretty. I’m planning to rectify this situation. My next...

Router Table Insert - Done!

10-15-2009 05:33 AM by Jimi_C | 4 comments »

Here it is: And the view of the router from the bottom: You can see the clamp and depth adjustment knob are easily accessible, but if I wanted I could use a T-wrench to adjust the depth from the top of the table. I’m not too concerned about that, since with this Ryobi you need to release that clamp so you have to duck down under the table anyway. So, it works, well enough at least for what I need it to. I’m planning on using it to rout out the dadoes for the rai...
