Building a Corner Cabinet From Magazine Plans

12-12-2018 01:15 AM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I built this corner cabinet out of curly maple. I built this project by following an article in the November 2010 issue (No. 186)of Popular Woodworking Magazine. I really love this design and this is the second one of these style cupboards i have built over the years. I mostly followed the plans in the article but I did make some changes, incorporating a beginner blacksmith project in to the cabinet. I forged these simple J hooks at the anvil for the piece and am I’m really happy with h...

Shop stuff #141: Roubo bench build part 9

11-24-2018 06:50 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

A huge amount of work gets done in this one. It’s worth it though. This is how I made the legs for the Roubo bench. It also brings everything on the build up to date. I am finally caught up with editing video on it. Not sure when the next bit of work will get done. Other projects and the weather will be in control of that. Still working on the bathroom reno!

Ellis-Mackintosh-Limbert mashup table #1: E-M-L in process

11-18-2018 03:29 PM by kordwood | 3 comments »

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but this little piece seems share-worthy. It’s an homage to three of my favorite Arts and Crafts pioneers: Harvey Ellis, Charles Limbert and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. They all bring a different aesthetic, but mashed up, the A&C commonality becomes clear. The Ellis influence: Most evident in the delicate edge of the top. The Mackintosh influences: The overall proportion and the inward angles of the legs. The Limbert influence: ...

How I made #11: Floor Lamp with LED Light

10-26-2018 12:23 PM by WoodenWorldDenic | 6 comments »

It all started by asking myself how to use a walnut board with a natural edge, which left from some other project. I wanted to put a plexiglas between two such boards, but I later changed my mind and decided to use only one board, because it seemed visually to me more tempting. For the light source I used a LED strip that illuminates the side of the plexiglass, giving an interesting visual effect. The ability to adjust the intensity and color of the light is convenient for obtaining the appro...

1958 Powermatic Model 100 Planer #1: I built a dust chute

10-11-2018 01:36 PM by jbswearingen | 0 comments »

I bought this planer about four years ago. In that time I’ve replaced the 3-blade cutter head with a Shelix head, replaced the motor after it died with a 3ph, 3hp Leeson with a VFD, and just added a dust chute to it last night. I’ll cover the other changes in other entries. I got the inspiration for this chute from a member at the OWWM forum. His is beautifully done, and painted to match his 100. Now that I know this one works, in the coming weeks I’ll fill in the une...

Shop stuff #136: Roubo build part 7

09-22-2018 02:44 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Although I am spending all my time renovating the bathroom, I still have footage to edit of the Roubo bench build. This short one is getting the top built up to a thicker dimension because, well, that’s what I want. A bit of work and a lot of clamps. I really need more clamps, and better ones too. What a strange thing for a woodworker to say….lol. View on YouTube

How to dimension lumber with handtools #2: Reference Face

09-11-2018 01:56 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

In this video, I establish the reference face. The reference face will determine all other dimensions of the board. I begin by placing the board cup side down for stability then I determine which direction of the grain. Once the board is positioned on the workbench I chamfer the opposing edge and begin to plane the board perpendicular to the grain along the length of the board. Once the board is relatively flat side to side, I test for twist with my winding sticks. If twist exists, I plane d...

Guitar Pedalboard Build

08-09-2018 12:51 AM by wrenchhead | 2 comments »

I made this homemade guitar pedalboard to clean up the cables and effects pedals I have. This was a fun woodworking project that only took a few hours over the weekend to complete. I used sapele wood and dovetail joinery to make this board. I installed a power inlet and a couple of 1/4” jacks to help with cord and cable management. I used General finishes Arm-R-Seal for a durable finish and added a .250 rubber feet so the pedal board doesn’t slide around. Thanks for watching ht...
