Entryway Bench #1: Glorious, glorious old wood.

10-16-2011 07:54 AM by superstretch | 1 comment »

Today marked the day I actually started my last project before Christmas gifts… (I’m still in the planning phase) When you walk in the door to our house, there’s a 37”W x 20”D cubby hole on the left: I started by creating a 2×4 frame that will serve as the bench, that I’ll probably attach to the wall tomorrow and then attach the front-most 2×4 to that. I’ll then double up more 2×4s to make a leg to support the front of the bench....

I think I finally whipped the snipe...

10-12-2011 09:01 AM by lilredweldingrod | 21 comments »

I’ve been trying to get rid of the snipe from my Grizzly 12 1/2” planer. When David visited last year, we adjusted on the inlets and outlets and everything else. Then later there was some discussion on LJ’s about adding sticks on the sides of the boards to be planed. I had an abundance of 1/4” thick pine stickers for stacking my lumber. I tried these on several boards but continued to get snipe. Well to day I figured out my problem I think. I cut new stickers from p...

Workbench #3: Milling Mostly Done

09-24-2011 02:50 AM by CartersWhittling | 1 comment »

Hello. This is another update on my bench build. I have had almost two months off working on it because my friend has been in my shop working on his bench. But just over a week ago we took his almost done bench to his house for him to do the final fitting of parts and such. After doing a little organizing and sharpening I got back to work on my bench. So right now I have the legs and parts for the top all milled to thickness and width. This is the slab for the roubo half of my bench. Its 2...

Spalted Maple Sofa Table #3: Cutting to size

09-19-2011 05:59 PM by superstretch | 5 comments »

TopOnce I had the top glued up, I realized I really should have used some biscuits to align everything. I had some serious steps between the boards and some very visible glue lines. I made a quick cross cut sled (in about 5 minutes) and was able to trim the ends of the top. I double checked with both a combo square and my framers square and both were dead on 90s. I really needed to sand the tabletop down. The vigorous scraping had left the top surface feeling very uneven. My brothe...

Spalted Maple Sofa Table #2: Milling and Gluing

09-16-2011 06:00 PM by superstretch | 1 comment »

TopThe spalted maple I had was about 5/4 rough. I would have loved to shave off a nice 3/8” or so to get them down to 3/4”, but my band saw was no where near up for the task. Off to the planer we go (after being ripped to width and jointed). LegsSince the boards I had were about 5/4, I couldn’t make the legs the desired 1.5” thick without gluing some together. Since the spalting and grain patterns were so varied, gluing two pieces together looked pretty gross....

Reclaimed Cedar #1: The Journey Begins

09-15-2011 07:13 PM by Chris Love | 3 comments »

Hello all! In addition to wood working, I am very involved with the Boy Scouts of America. Both of my sons are Boy Scouts and I am currently an Assistant Scout Master. One of our Eagle Scout Candidates recently completed his Eagle project that involved removing an “old” Cedar Rail Fence. Rather than see all of this beautifully aged cedar turn into firewood; I offered to take it and repurpose it into projects. I love to make outdoor furniture and will post entries here as ...

Cherry Night Stand #1: The beginning and some of the middle.

09-09-2011 01:12 AM by Brian024 | 6 comments »

Even though this project has been complete for sometime, I did film the progress of it so I figured some of your guys may enjoy the process. On a side note, since this was a client build, I decided to not talk but just filmed the clips. I found this to save me a ton of time instead of if I had talked my way through it. I hope you guys still enjoy it though.

Shop in the Sky #4: FINALLY got the walls up!

08-22-2011 02:44 AM by EROCK | 5 comments »

I Spent the day building the walls for the shop. Each 4 foot panel is built separately so if I ever have to take it down, the panels can go with me. The lower panel beneath the open window can come out with a few screws if I need to forklift anything in or out of the shop. I need to get all the rest of my tools to the shop and get everything set up and finalized, but I’m happy with the progress made!
