Chip carving patterns #3: Grid pattern #1

02-25-2010 02:16 AM by lovestoys | 2 comments »

Found a cool trick to help with the dry air of winter carving. I’ve been placing a piece of dampened paper towel around the wood blank an hour or two before I carve. When I first did it, I just put it on one side, which lead to some weird warping, but when the blank re-dried it was flat again (whew). This pattern relies almost entirely on the basic triangle cuts, so it’s good for practice. I used a simple flower motif in the center, it can be left blank or used for some...

Yet Another Workbench #1: Planning

04-06-2010 11:45 PM by A. Michael Wilson | 7 comments »

I want to build a bench. I don’t have a decent clamping surface in my “shop”. So here are my plans as the are now. The material will be douglas fir 2×4 and the leg vise will be red oak 3/4”x8”. The screw will come from LeeValley. The sides will be drawbore mortise and tenon, and I’ll be using bed bolts for the long stretchers. The dimensions are: 24”w 33.5”h 84”lThe legs are 4.5”x3.5” The stretchers are 2×4&#...

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...

Day one

03-01-2012 02:11 AM by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...

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...
