Roubo Cabinet #10: Placing the Backpanel

05-26-2011 11:44 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 8 comments »

With the back panel released from pipe-clamp jail and kinda-sorta smoothed with a #4, time to get it ready for fitting to the back of the carcase. What I want to do is get this panel inset into a groove planed (yes, with the #48!) inside said carcase so it floats in place / can expand and contract its little heart out. The panel will be ‘tongued’ on all four sides, so in order to get the ‘un-tongued’ dimensions right I first had to clamp the carcase tight to get a ‘finished’ inside dimension ...

First time tool gloat

05-25-2011 12:56 AM by devann | 15 comments »

Every once in a while somebody gives me an antique tool. Today was another one of those days. Today I was given a Stanley No. 62 1/2”x 24” folding wood ruler. It seems to be in fairly good shape and I was tickled to receive it. In the past I have arrived to the shop and found some old tools left in a box outside my shop door. Here are a couple examples. The top one is about 9” overall. And the bottom one is 13” overall. They both have the word Ward and a...

Hand Plane Quest #1: The Purchase

05-24-2011 07:19 PM by VinnieP | 13 comments »

Recently I have been keeping an eye out on garage sales and auctions for some hand planes. Before last weekend I only had a newer Stanley block plane. The auction I went to only listed hand planes with no details and no pictures. I was also interested in some old furniture they had so I went any way. I’m glad I did! In a box of miscellaneous items I got 3 planes. One is unmarked and I’m not sure what it is (will post a picture if someone wants to help identify it), a Stanley...

Wedding Clock #6: DISASTER STRIKES!

05-24-2011 12:19 AM by kenn | 6 comments »

I was making great progress on the clock. The wedding is 17 weeks away. My wife commented that she thought it would be done in time today. I headed done to my shop. I’ve been working on the front frame and thought I might be gluing it up today. Here’s a look at the lower rail, nice tight joint. I needed to put the profile on the bottom of that rail. As you may remember from my last post, I am using a huge fortsner bit to establish the curve and then bandsawing out the waste...

Shop Journal #3: Groovy Grooving Planes

05-19-2011 09:15 PM by Brian Havens | 10 comments »

In the last shop update, I briefly mentioned a grooving plane that did not work so well. The idea was to have a tool that could quickly make the grooves in the bottom of draw and box stock to accept the drawer/box bottom. The new design really rocks, so much that I made three sizes (widths): 1/8”, 3/16”, 1/4”. Although these are intended for making the grooves on drawer and box sides, I have been discovering more uses for the flexible design of these planes: Shop Jou...

A new kitchen table #1: preparing the top

05-19-2011 06:32 AM by derosa | 1 comment »

At our old house we had what my wife liked to call a breakfast nook, it was a small table with two benches that occupied the corner of the kitchen. It had cost us 50.00 bucks on craigslist and is/was just the right size for that kitchen prompting us to leave it there. The fact that the benches were notorious for dumping the unsuspecting on their asses may have assisted the decision. The result is that the wife is requesting a replacement. I decided that I really like the look of butternut ...

The Maloof Library Series #8: Something for all of you iPad enthusiasts...

05-19-2011 12:28 AM by ScottMorrison | 3 comments »

Hi everyone. My extremely talented wife just wrote a groundbreaking new APP for the iPad. It’s the first of it’s kind for woodworkers, enabling you to play with a 3D rocking chair (and all of the separate parts) right on the iPad. You can order parts, take notes and do lots of other cool stuff including watching come never-before-seen videos right within the APP. I admit it, I am a gadget guy, and this is so much fun to play with it makes it hard to go back to making sawdu...

Wedding Clock #5: Don't Get Mad at Me, The Back

05-18-2011 03:35 AM by kenn | 5 comments »

As a reminder, I am making an Art and Craft style clock based on one at The Grove Park Inn for my eldest daughter’s upcoming wedding. See post #2 for the goal. I’ve decided to make the back frame and panel assembly first. A little sharpening is order before I get started. Next I planed the stiles flat and square with my Lie-Nielsen #7. Then I just couldn’t handle the suspense anymore and had to lay out the panels and rails to see how it was going to look. This allowed ...
