would this work?

12-25-2008 12:32 AM by AaronK | 7 comments »

Been tossing around an idea for a nearly minimalist bookcase idea. i think it might work, but i wouldnt load it with anything too heavy on all but the bottom shelf (or the very center of the middle!). I think, also, that the corner joints of the top and middle shelves would be strongest as through dovetails. the two sets of parallel beam supports in the back would be notched/dadoed to accept the shelves, which might be good partially notched as well. one missing dimension in the figure is the...

The space in a tool chest

04-19-2012 05:52 PM by TDog | 14 comments »

An heirloom tool chest…wow that’s a lot or room for tools… I was so surprised and relieved upon finishing my medium to small sized tool chest (posted with my projects) to find that it held all of my hand tools that were once taking up so much space in the tool cabinet I made which took up to much bench space and got in the way often of working on projects. The old cabinet had tools hanging on dowels and pegs and there was dust covering all my nice hand too...

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 ...
