Shuffling (Everyday I'm) #1: Hoarders of cut offs

11-22-2013 12:55 AM by T. D. Reid | 0 comments »

Well I took the day off yesterday from the three A&C style night stands I’m building to do a little clean up of cut offs I had laying around (two bins 15”W x 36”L x 24”T). I cut them all off at 12” long and not more than 3” wide so I can use them in the wood stove at the cabin. I also needing to organize the bigger pieces of scraps that are usable. You know the stuff that if it was in our house it we would be on that hoarders show. Its tuff to throw out...

Custom Buffet #6: Drawer Construction

11-05-2013 01:59 AM by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

It has been a struggle, but I finally managed to get the drawers built. I made drawer stock by gluing up discounted (50% off) lumber purchased at the lumber yard. They sell “shorts” – boards that are less than 48 inches in length in various widths. I made the drawers out of poplar with the exception of the pull out tray. It is maple. With the boards glued up, I then planed them to just over 5/8 inch. Then I switched to the drum sander and sanded them to 5/8 inch th...

Custom Buffet #5: Drawer Fronts and Brick!

10-26-2013 04:52 PM by MT_Stringer | 10 comments »

Time to make the frames for the drawer fronts. The pieces were narrow and some were small so I set up a featherboard to help safely guide the pieces past the cutter. They turned out nice. The drawer fronts will have flat panels. I could have used either plywood or mdf but NO! Instead, I glued up some short pieces of poplar, planed them to almost 3/8 inch thick, then ran them through the drum sander. Next, it was cut to final size, then rout a rabbit in the rear so the panels would fit i...

Just for Fun... #79: Milling around...

10-08-2013 02:17 PM by littlecope | 16 comments »

I spent this Sunday just milling around in the shop, finally facing up to the rest of the slab of Bubinga that was bought last February…The slab was about 14” wide to begin with… I had begun by slicing it roughly in half to make it more manageable and also to gather some experience with the new Band Saw and Planer; Experience, that was sorely needed!When all was said and done, there was quite a little pile of “mistake” wood… Of course I’ll find use...

Trying new woodworking skills #7: Dressing up rough lumber

09-26-2013 11:11 PM by BJODay | 3 comments »

Well I felt like I did enough practicing with scrap. I decided to clean up the QS white oak for my end tables. I started by cutting most of it down to 60” and 40” lengths. I left 4 pieces full length, (96” – 102”). This made it easier to handle. I ran each piece through the jointer. Made a flat face and a square edge to it. I had some minor problems using the jointer. I would feed, then change my hand placement and feed the rest of the way through. When I did ...

Trying new woodworking skills #6: Planed wood, not scrap

09-22-2013 04:05 AM by BJODay | 0 comments »

I was ready to start on my end tables but I wanted to practice first. The end tables are quarter sawn oak. I don’t want to screw up so I need to experiment with a cheaper project first. I will also be making an intarsia project. For a long time I have wanted to make a map of Wisconsin with each county cut from a separate piece of wood. I know it’s not very original but I’ve seen a finished project and it looked pretty cool. I bought some shorts from the lumber yard. Th...

Hand tool collection #1: Stanley no. 71 router plane

09-21-2013 02:51 AM by SamuelP | 9 comments »

I had a little time in the shop tonight and was looking for a small project to at least start. I forget how much you can get done when the kids are asleep. I won this on ebay for under $20 a while back. Here is an “almost” before shot. Here I have the first knob done. I sanded the knobs chucked into my cordless drill. I used sandpaper, steel wool and then a cotton cloth with BLO and then wax. Paste wax first, then smeared straight hard beeswax and polished on the drill woth...
