MDB #1: Milling S3S ...yes, triangles.

08-02-2010 03:32 AM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here In Highschool I always doodled (I still am). and one of my favorite things was to use the squares on the math papers to form different geometries – mostly with triangles. as I was playing along, I discovered that I could form a star of david (Magen David) and that formation has stuck with me ever since. When I was introduced to the idea of making cutting boards out of wood, I always wanted ...

Tool Gloatings

08-01-2010 08:19 PM by wellington | 8 comments »

I’m still pretty new out here, but I really enjoy the concept of the ‘tool gloat’, so I’ve decided to partake. This is (most of) my shop… It’s perpetually in a complete disaster state, but I suppose that’s a good thing… means that things are getting done. We’ll start the tour at the most terrifying thing in the place… the 14” table saw… This, like pretty much everything else in here, was acquired by my dad about...

We are working on a entry bench and mirror set for a homeowner. There is a small space in the entry of the condo by the base of the stairs that will accommodate a sitting bench and decorative mirror. The mirror unit will be made up of poplar and will have a dark finish. An existing mirror from the powder room has been fabricated and will be framed. a shelf and crown trim will be at the base and crown and a shelf will finish out the top. The bench seat will have a flip lid to store thi...

Joinery #2: Don't get your drawers in a twist

07-21-2010 03:56 AM by Rob Bois | 3 comments »

I have done videos in the past about how I handle hand cut dovetails for drawers, so for this current project I decided it didn’t make much sense to just highlight the same techniques. Instead, I focused on several challenges I faced with this most recent set of drawers, ranging from some tricky grain to sharpening fatigue. This won’t teach you how to build a drawer, but you might find a few tips you can apply in your shop.

Garage Workshop Transformation #2: The Ultimate Tool Stand

07-19-2010 04:15 PM by John Steffen | 7 comments »

As evidenced in my first post in this series, I have a severe lack of organization in my garage/shop. Two weekends ago I threw up some shelves with my ‘chop saw’ (that’s for you Don) so we could get my soon-to-be wife’s side of the garage organized. That was a quick and easy project, and we (mostly she) got that part of the garage in tiptop shape. Well last weekend she wanted me to start cleaning my side (two thirds) of the garage. We’re getting married in Se...

Just Part of the Biz

07-07-2010 05:07 AM by Troy | 9 comments »

I was never under any delusion that having my own woodworking business would be all fun, just making stuff from wood. All in all, it’s been about 50% of it at best so far. That’s another discussion though, esp. since I am still fully adjusting. So I finally had a significant machine failure. I was feeding a piece of maple through the planer and it slowed part way through, like it was turned off mid-feed, except that it wasn’t consistent. There was nothing unusual about th...

Raised panels chest #1: Raised Panels Jewelry chest with inlays

07-02-2010 09:02 PM by lanwater | 7 comments »

This chest is a class project I did. The design is not mine; the instructor (Jim Vice) provided this design. It took many hours to build and covers many woodworking techniques. It is currently not quite finished yet. I still have to make walnut plugs and cover those screw holes, secure the top, chose some know (I am thinking brass) and of course apply a finish. We primarily used Ash throughout. The drawer dividers, back and bottom are plywood. I chose sapele for the drawer front inl...
