22-540 - Setting Knives W/O Jig

12-23-2013 02:23 AM by Weth | 3 comments »

So I am making some saw dust and I go to turn on my 22-540 planer and I hear a crunch. I get a sick feeling knowing that I am either going to be out some time or money or both. It turns out that the dust hood 50-359 shifted and was caught in the blade. The shroud is salvageable. However the blades need to be changed. I look up how to do this with out the knife setting jig. I cannot buy one because it is out of stock. I learned how set planer knives with this video: http://www.youtu...

Making a Single Slab Table

12-15-2013 06:30 AM by Odysseus | 4 comments »

Here’s a photo story of how a beautiful sapele slab dining table came to be… I anxiously awaited my flawless sapele slab from a top-dollar dealer… How NOT to palletize a very expensive slab. The 60 inch by 10 foot sapele slab arrived in less than the perfect shape promised. Here it is unwrapped, beautiful, but problematic… Hmm… I would say that’s cupped and sawn pretty bad. Yikes! Not the 12/4 promised. I decided to sand this board rath...

Flip Table #1: Phase 1 - The Table

12-09-2013 08:14 PM by hjt | 5 comments »

Having one’s tools on wheels, providing mobility in the work shop is great. Have a double duty station that is not only mobile but helps you gain back valuable bench space… now that’s the “cat’s meow.” The drill currently sits on the work bench while the planer is on a make-shift rolling cart I’ve seen here on LJ and on You Tube these flip tables. But better yet, Hank, a local wood worker has one I’ve seen in person and I certainly see how helpful it is. If you are interested i...

Pochade Box in progress #3: Pallette, trim and oil

11-29-2013 06:42 AM by Jon1094 | 4 comments »

Yesterday I completed the combination pallete and wet canvase holder. It is constucted out of birch plywood with oak inserts for holding the wet canvases. The pallete is finished with two coats of BLO. It is shown out of the box with an inserted canvase and inside the box with the pallete in view. I trimmed the drawers with walnut and put two coats of Danish oil on the box. I’ll let the oil dry for three or four days and then finish with satin wipe on polyurethane. ...

Furniture Making Tutorials #1: Solid Bookmatched Panels - A how to.

11-26-2013 04:22 AM by BigRedKnothead | 3 comments »

Solid bookmatched panels. They seem simple, but there are techniques to getting great looking panels. On a piece like this blanket chest I working on, I start with the panels. They get the choice cuts, and I want to have some flexibility on the project dimensions depending on how the panels are turning out. With QS material, I like to find medullary rays like this. For something like knotty alder, I would strategically place the knots…etc. When cut and bookmatched QS can have ...

Gun Showcase/Coffee Table #1: Gun showcase/Coffee Table

11-23-2013 05:14 PM by vpbarnwood | 1 comment »

Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.

Pochade Box in progress #2: mechanism, woodburning and handle

11-22-2013 11:11 AM by Jon1094 | 1 comment »

I completed the mechanism for the inside of the box lid and fit it to to canvasse boards that it will hold. I believe they are 12”X9? I built the cover for the top out of baltic birch ply and chamfered the edges to make it a bit more sleek. I put my artistic abilities to the test and printed off a quote from the English illustrator Arthur Rackham. I made sure the font was something attractive but would still be easy to burn. I printed the quote out and taped it to graphite transfer...

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...
