Hickory Chest Build #2: How to build a Raised Panel Hickory Chest

01-31-2012 06:06 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 0 comments »

Hi everyone. I first off want to say I am sorry it took so long to get back here. Between Facebook, Google plus and Youtube and my website . I never made it back here to update this series. Well the Hickory Chest build went very well. It ended up being an eight video series from start to finish. The Hickory Chest featured Raised Panel construction and the chest was lined with cedar. This project started when a client asked me to build a blanket chest for...

Building My Roubo Bench #3: Rough Cutting the Lumber and Starting the Top

01-29-2012 07:16 AM by Andy Panko | 2 comments »

After letting the lumber acclimate for a couple of weeks, I rough cut all the pieces, leaving them all slightly oversized so I can cut, joint and plane them down to final dimensions along the way. I have a 12” miter saw, but it is not a slider. Therefore, I’m not able to cross cut 12” wide dimensional lumber on it. So I made a basic little cross cut sled to make all the cross cuts on my table saw. Since the top of the bench is the most important – functionall...

Wooden hand plane #1: Wooden Hand Plane

01-23-2012 06:03 PM by Henrik Oscarsson | 2 comments »

I had just finished a pastryboard to my wife. and had nothing to do. I looked around the shop to see if there was something i could build. A few months ago i bought some pieces of oak to my kitchen project but i saved one of the pieces for special occations/projects. The grain was tighter and the weight was heavier than the other pieces. I saved it wanted to make something nice and useful of it. I decided to make a hand plane, Krenov style. I realize that oak is not the optimal wood for...

Building My Roubo Bench #2: (Mis)Adventures in Getting the Material

01-18-2012 04:37 AM by Andy Panko | 6 comments »

At some point in December, I decided I’d be building my bench out of Douglas Fir. As stated in Chris’s book, Doug Fir is stiff and moderately hard. It isn’t that heavy, but given the amount of material I’ll be using on the bench, the final product should be heavy enough. Also as recommended in the book, I realized that a big box store would be a fine place to get the lumber. 2×12s are readily available at every Home Depot and Lowes near me. I have a good tabl...

Making simple boxes with inlay designs in lid.

01-09-2012 07:50 PM by Jim Finn | 1 comment »

I make simple boxes, mostly of cedar with poplar inlays. There are many fine ways to make boxes and this is about the simplest. I make them 11”x8”x2 1/2” deep with hinged lid. 8” is my limit of the width of wood so anything over that will have a splice in it, which I avoid doing. I start by planeing and re-sawing the 1” thick rough eastern red cedar to 3/8” thickness on my band saw. I then cut strips to 2 1/4” to form the sides ...

Boat Cradle #1: Strip Boat Cradle

01-09-2012 03:52 AM by JayVT | 1 comment »

The plans for this project are available in a book titled “The Expectant Father’s Cradle Boat Book”.This first picture is of the forms after they were all cut out and mounted to a base.The going is slow only a few inches at a time. The epoxy needs to harden then a few more inches.We covered the edge of the forms with duct tape to keep the strips from sticking to the forms.I also used wax paper to keep the clamps from sticking to the epoxy covered strips.I had to work fast so...

Walnut Slab Coffee Table #1: Flattening slab with router sled

01-01-2012 07:14 PM by Lumber2Sawdust | 5 comments »

I started a post about a wood gloat about a month ago. I found some nice walnut slabs at a sawmill for some projects. The first one up is a coffee table. I thought I would start a blog about the process of preparing the slab. I may follow this with more about adding a base to the table as it progresses. I’ve done a fair number of projects in the past, but nothing involving a big slab like this. I have been excited about getting this project started, but Christmas was approaching...
