Sawstop and Router Cabinet / Infeed Table / Outfeed Table Project

1372 days ago by zzzzdoc | 462 comments »

At the very start, let me give all the credit in the world to Tedth66, whose project this is totally based on, and who has been graciously providing guidance as I build this. This is a modification of his design, adding a few details, and making it work for my shop. I have a 2 car garage / workshop that is tremendously space challenged, so I need to be clever about every square inch. On top of that, I enjoy modifying designs and making them work custom for me. So when I saw Ted’s ...

Done: Simple Headboard Build

897 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 129 comments »

Walnut Headboard Build A quick project that is needed but is also a nice mental diversion from the daily grind. Material pulled from inventory is (very) rough cut ‘wormy walnut’ sapwood that isn’t good for much, but is something around 5/4 thick and is long enough (and wide enough) to do the job before me. Using this for the rails, top and bottom. I’ll joint one edge, work up the face, then rip the piece before deciding on what to do with any design element. ...

Split Roubo Workbench #1: I have put this off for far too long

854 days ago by lysdexic | 127 comments »

Ok, so let me get this blog started before I get so far behind that I put it off – forever. It is undisputed that the most important tool in the woodworking shop is a proper workbench. I don’t have one. I will not rehash the nuances of workbench design but after reading Schwarz’s and Scott Landis’s books, I had my heart set on a Roubo bench. I am not alone as several LJ’s have posted wonderful roubo benches. At first I wanted to build this… I r...

17 Foot Dining Room Table #2: Pedestals done

1793 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 99 comments »

Hi Everyone; It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. The table project has been side tracked for a while, due to some health issues but I’m back at it now. The three pedestal bases are finished. I’ve also started posting the construction details on one of my wood working websites: http://www.myhomewoodshop.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=72:17-foot-dining-room-table-part-1&catid=82:dining-room-tables&Itemid=63 ...

starting my kitchen cabinets

1790 days ago by woodchic | 78 comments »

Hi everybody…....My husband finally got the floor finished…...he did a fantastic job I might add and now…..I finally sucked up enough courage to get started on my kitchen cabinets. The kitchen and dining area is 14 ft wide x 24.6 ft long. My cabinets are made of plywood and my face frames and doors are made out of hickory. I have never worked on a set of kitchen cabinets before, so I am pretty much learning this on my own. I have a friend on here that gives me advice whe...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #4: Let the Scrolling Begin - Casting on and Casting Off

1097 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 69 comments »

Now that everyone has their patterns applied to the wood, we are finally ready to turn on our saws and do some cutting. Since the practice patterns that I have given you have no inside cuts, we are going to learn some practical ways to start and finish our cutting lines. I call this ‘casting on’ and ‘casting off’ the wood. Most people – especially when starting out – just aim for the part of the design that is closest to the edge and start cutting. ...

End Grain Floor #11: Marquetry Inlaid Sailing Ship

798 days ago by Nate Meadows | 63 comments »

With all the tile work done its was time to move on to the details. The first inlay that I decided to work on was the Old Sailing Ship. I searched high and low for a good scroll saw, marquetry pattern that would work, but as many of you know, there just isn’t that many out there. The ones that are out there are not suitable for this project. So I had to find a picture and make my own pattern. It took awhile but I finally found one I liked on the web. I made my pattern and used patternre...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #1: FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT!

983 days ago by StumpyNubs | 63 comments »

Maybe “LOVE” is a strong word. But I’m really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It’s been over a year in development, and And I’d like to think it is a pretty unique format! Here’s how it works… The show is designed to have the feel of a single camera “reality” type show. It is meant to be a glimpse into our workshop as if you were just stopping in...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #14: Wooden Screw - Another attempt

640 days ago by Mauricio | 61 comments »

It didnt turn out well, still licking my wounds. Here is briefly what happened… Made a new jigAfter one test screw, I successfuly made one that had reasonable little chipping, I was happy with it.I actually cut the hub off a reject screw and reused it on this one. Tapped the leg Tried the screw, but it binds up after a little bit. I kept tapping the threads deeper and deeper hoping it would fit but it wasn’t the diameter of the hole, it was the thread pitch, and since the...
