Small Secretary With Tambour Door #7: Inlay, Inlay and More Inlay

02-08-2015 05:36 AM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

I start out by creating a template for the oval fan medallions that will be recessed into the front of the leg. I then work on the recesses for the banding that will go on the rails. The banding on the legs at the top must match the rails exactly, and I show how I accomplish this. Then it’s cutting for the banding on the legs, along with additional stringing that will be on the front of the legs. I wrap it all up by gluing all the banding and string inlay into the legs and the rails. As al...

Becoming a Galoot #4: Planing Blues - In Need of Advice

01-25-2014 08:46 PM by scruboak51 | 4 comments »

Things have progressed nicely over the past few days. After a good 30 minutes of study, I laid out some chalk lines to square up the live edges. Then went to work ripping with a combination of the old cross-cut and a small rip-saw on the sections that were thin enough for that to be effective. It’s about time put a fresh edge on the old crosscut. Things really started bogging down during these cuts. I was able to muscle through, and am pretty pleased with how the projec...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #16: The worst Easter ever

04-06-2015 01:46 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

So, my task today was to cut up a piece of maple I bought the other day to make the gap stop and get it glued up in the clamps and then go over to family for Easter dinner. I set up the band saw and set about resawing the board into two halves. It went fine for the first 3/4 of the board then it was binding the blade and was not tracking straight, and not wanting to cut. I made a couple of adjustments, everything else looked fine in the setup. It just wouldn’t cut and was binding hor...

Cutting Boards? How hard can it be??

12-04-2013 03:57 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Let’s see, I had a couple scraps of Black Walnut sitting around the shop. Also had what was left from a Black Cherry floor joist ( From an old barn tear down) Both were being abused by every new-to-me handplane that came into the shop. Decided to try and make SOMETHING out of them, before they wound up as just a pile of shavings. Edges were planed square and ready for glue-ups. Didn’t have a way to make slimmer pieces, so I just used the scraps as is. Got a slab out o...

Roubo Cabinet #4: Resurfacing Material

05-02-2011 09:59 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 4 comments »

With plan and materials in hand it’s time to build panels that will become the Roubo Cabinet (with pictures!) Not for the faint at heart, this entry contains extensive hand plane use that many would consider exhausting and (essentially) pointless in the modern workshop. I, of course, see things differently. Up to this point, I’d not had a project that required solid wood panels that had to be joined / assembled to this extent. So ‘gluing up panels’ had meant rail and style stuff, not what ...

The Veritas arrives!

04-08-2010 05:53 AM by Rick Boyett | 4 comments »

Today I opened my mailbox and my eyes were alighted with excitement. My “new to me” Veritas low angle block plane had just arrived. My late night browsing of the Woodnet Swap and Sell forum had really paid off. I’ll let you know how much I paid in the review. Boy ain’t she pretty. :) Just a few small specks of rust on the sole, but no pitting. I’ll get her tuned up this weekend and put her through her paces. However, just inspecting the individual parts...

How Nice Ash Planes are made: A Big Ash load

04-11-2013 06:46 PM by rhett | 4 comments »

It starts with wood, ash to be exact, grown and logged here in Kentucky. This is one of the rare occassions you go out looking for a big ash.Here we see Holger, the logger, cutting lengths of ash down to size. His crew drops marked trees and drags them out to stage. After they are seperated by species, they are cut to the sizes ordered.With the help of a CAT, logs are carefully loaded. Chech out that fat ash on the trailer! Next stop, the sawmill…..
