Slab Coffee Table #1: Constructing the Carved Tree Trunk Base

05-14-2016 06:56 PM by CharlieK | 8 comments »

<div> <div>Get your own valid XHTML YouTube embed code</div></div> I am having a lot of trouble getting the video to look right in this blog! It looks wrong here and if you click full screen it looks even worse! If you REALLY want to watch it then it is best to click on the button to see it on YouTube. It looks fine there. Otherwise, well, you get the idea! If anyone knows the RIGHT way to embed videos then I would love it if you would ...

Curved Front End Table #5: Maple Back and Curved Cherry Top

04-23-2016 11:52 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’...

04-20-2016 05:47 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

I ended up with a lot of footage, so I am going to split the video up as needed to the time manageable. In this video, I start my new project which is a tilt-out wastebasket cabinet. As usual, I start out with rough lumber, so much of this first video is about preparing the stock. Need to Joint a board that is wider than your jointer? I cover that in this video as well. Stay tuned to see how it all turns out! View on YouTube Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thomaslightleFaceb...

Cherry Nightstand #2: Cutting it down to size

04-19-2016 12:27 AM by ilyac | 0 comments »

So first come the fun part. Picking up the lumber at the local shop, and stapped it in as my co-pilot Next I rough marked all the lumber to try to minimize waste, and cut if all down to rough size. I took all those pieces straightened out the size and planed all the pieces to thickness. This was also the the reason I got a thickness planer, which I have to say, is an amazing addition to the shop. Now I’ve got nice little piles of squared of lumber.

Curved Front End Table #4: Fitting Doors, Curved & Veneered Drawer

04-09-2016 10:29 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this video, I cut the curved door panels to size using the bending form I used to create them. Then I cut the veneer for the edge banding, and install it on the doors to give the illusion that they are a solid bent panel. Then install the hinges and hang them. After the doors are hung, I can start working on the curved drawer front. I cut the face of the curve on a large blank and them create the half blind dovetails for the sides. I then veneer the face of the drawer front so that the ...

Shop Improvements #3: Dust Collection and Tools

04-04-2016 11:53 PM by Cathie Zimmerman | 1 comment »

We’re at it again! After using the router for the first time and finding just how much saw dust one can generate I decided to again rearrange the garage and dig out old tools and items to sell on offer up and Craigslist. We made about $250 which covered the cost of the 2 hp “industrial” single stage dust collector from Harbor Freight. I spoke to the manager about what these kids and I have been doing and that we needed a system. She went above and beyond by offering to honor...

03-30-2016 05:07 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

The time has come to start building my new workbench. I am using wood from some industrial size pallets from my work. The wood is some kind of spruce that came out of Hungary. In this installment I will be preparing the stock that will become the tabletop. I have to do some serious milling to get the stock straight and square before I could get it ready for glue-up. Be sure to participate in the comments section, and I hope you enjoy the video! View on YouTube Instagram: https://www.i...
