Garage turned workshop.....the series #1: Guess what I got for Christmas?

01-07-2010 07:22 AM by ericandcandi | 15 comments »

Hi everyone…..I just finished placing my Christmas present from the “fam” in its new home. Its a DEWALT 734 planer. I built a slide-out in a section of my workbench so it will stow away without a problem. I used heavy duty slides but for weight concerns I installed a large castor. It works wonderful. I can run a very heavy board through without worrying about stressing the drawer out. You can just make out the castor I used under the drawer. After l...

Redwood Slabs

12-18-2009 02:37 AM by dougdeg | 5 comments »

We order a few redwood slabs off of ebay, We were supprised when they came they were quite large, one was 44” wide and 84” long and the other was 27” wide and 72” long. They were cut in a way that most edges were a natural live edge, Which gave them a nice free form look, Redwood was a lot softer than i had thought it wood be but nice to work with.We decide to create a redwood coffee table out of the first piece. I have a friend that has a 36” planer wit...

Welcome the the Cottage workshop!

12-15-2009 03:21 PM by CottageWorkshop | 15 comments »

Here I am, finally on Lumberjocks! I thought I would introduce myself by sharing a video of me working on my current project, a Shaker style six drawer dresser in walnut. This is becoming my typical style of woodworking over the last year. I mill lumber in the barn with a jointer, a planer and a table saw and then move to the Cottage Workshop where I slow things down, using hand tools and traditional techniques to join parts together. This ia also my first time-lapse video made with the Gawke...

A journey into the workshop. #28: A mantle clock underway in the shop.

12-13-2009 06:07 AM by dbhost | 8 comments »

So the mantle clock project is underway, the walnut and oak strips are cut, and the stripe section is glued up and drying in the clamps… It is now too late to run power tools, so the cross section will need to wait until tomorrow. I had a $10.00 off any purchase of $20.00 or more at Woodcraft coupon, so I got my walnut there. I really only needed / wanted 2 board feet anyway, just enough to finish up this project, and maybe do another one for MY desk after Christmas is over…...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #1: Convert random scraps into end grain boards (cut first - design later)

12-07-2009 06:09 AM by sras | 4 comments »

OK. This blog stuff is new to me. I’ve got a couple projects going where I am forcing myself to leave the large stock alone and work with material that ends up getting burned after I have too much of it. I have been using CBdesigner from jayman7. He posted a project on this here. I have searched through blog entries and I think I am using this in a little different way. Another big resource for me has been dewoodwork’s blog on how to make an end grain cutting board. Clearly,...

Bed Construction #2: Building phase OVER

12-06-2009 01:07 AM by Vincent Labreche | 2 comments »

Hi, So here is post #2 of my bed construction series. After a tough week (was knocked down by the influenza for a few days), I managed to finish all of the building work on this bed. I must admit that I am very pleased with the results. The only thing left is to:-Fine sand some of the rougher areas-Apply the finish As a matter of fact, I am no expert in finishing techniques, so I am asking LJ: What finish would you use to preserve the natural feel and color of the wood, while using...
