Bunk Bed Build #4: Plowing Grooves in the Rails and Posts

07-17-2013 01:53 PM by Mauricio | 48 comments »

Hello again folks, the next step was to plow some groves in the stretchers and posts of the head board. The old Stanley #45 was the weapon of choice for this stage of the project which is a lot of fun to use. Here I am with the tool in action! In my head I look much cooler doing this. The first challenge I had to overcome was the lack of a plywood sized cutter. As you are all aware ¾” plywood is slightly undersized so I had to use the next size down and then pair away the rest of the w...

WHO TOOK THOR'S CHISEL?

05-21-2012 10:09 AM by stefang | 45 comments »

Why intarsia?I wanted to try my hand at intarsia and maybe marquetry later on. I have been seeing some of Kory’s wonderful intarsia projects for awhile and also Shipwrights beautiful marquetry, both of which I find very inspiring. (project Photos at the bottom) I decided to go the intarsia route first as this type of work is easier done on a scroll saw whereas fine marquetry when done on a scroll saw requires advanced sawing skills which can only be learned through practice, and I ha...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #8: Splayed Back Legs and Stretcher

07-10-2012 06:40 PM by Mauricio | 44 comments »

Hello Friends, I’m long overdue for an update so there are a lot of pictures. I’ve made quite a bit of progress but the ending is not so happy I’m afraid, after reassembling the parts last night I discovered an error I will have to fix. The great thing about woodworking is that almost anything is fixable, it’s just frustrating. You’ll see what I mean at the end. As usual, I’ll let the pictures do most of the explaining: Cut the shoulders on the angled te...

End Grain Floor #21: Sea Gulls

12-05-2012 03:03 PM by Nate Meadows | 43 comments »

It has been so long since my last blog and I want to thank all of you for your patience! Life has a way of getting in the way of our plans. There is that saying, “If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.” Well I was planning on getting to the Sea Gulls much sooner than this but…well you know. So I have finally started. I think I have already told you there will be three; all at different sizes, representing different heights. This will hopefully give the viewer...
