"Eagle's Realm "Intarsia #2: Just a few trees

842 days ago by wdkits1 | 2 comments »

I added a few trees to the background yesterday. Each tree is made from lignum vitae and Peruvian walnut. The lignum is brown now but will turn a vivid green in time. I use CA glue to hold the pieces of the trees together to form a single unit. 100 pieces so far..I have just about finished the design for the background so will be posting more progress pics soon.

Lee and Shelley's Wet Bar #3: Phase II Face frame Assembly

145 days ago by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

With the boards milled and cut to length, it was time to assemble the face frames. I used a Kreg pocket hole jig to drill the holes for the frames. Not just any jig but my modified jig. It works great! I have to stay focused and keep my fingers out of the way. :-) Then I laid out the pieces and clamped them to my work bench/assembly table. A few screws later and VOILA! a completed frame. Rinse, repeat three more times, and the four frames are ready to go. Next phase, rais...

Holly's Jasper #10: Holly's Jasper #10

127 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 2 comments »

Did some repair work today. Broke off a small piece of the jowl and almost let it go, but decided to do the full workup. homemade clamp for the chip, hand shaved inserts for the band saw over cuts. A little fitting, gluing, and tapping them home, then leaving them to dry did the trick. Shaving off the excess, and the repair is almost done….

Coffee Table - Red Oak & Padauk #1: Table Top

858 days ago by Mosquito | 2 comments »

I’m in the process of building a coffee table for my apartment. I’m using Red Oak and Padauk for this. It’s going to be a relatively basic basic table. It was an extremely nice day for this in March. Yes, I started this in March… outside… in shorts… in MN… did I mention my distaste for this “winter”? Anyway, I started by using my [home made] router table to shave a pair of 3/4×11.25” boards down to 11” wide to use ...

Sam Maloof inspired rocking chair #2: First try at the Maloof joint **Project on hold pending move**

1044 days ago by sandhill | 2 comments »

Not having done this before it was a bit of a challenge to do I hope the joint is tight enough after the glue is in the joints and its clamped up. This is just the dry fit for now.In the two photos below are the left and right front legs. Today my 1/4” down cut spiral bit came so I will be routing the holes for the back slats then next week when my new band saw blade gets here I will cut the seat profile, sand and scoop the seat then comes the front legs.One thing I realized is you ...

Craftsman Style Kitchen Cabinets #1: The Leap

780 days ago by Douglas | 2 comments »

First, I have to apologize for this multi-part series not being posted as I went along. I am starting posting this series now that I am 97% done with the whole thing. As a two year long lurker on LJs, I know that if I’d been posting these as I went along, I would have had lots of helpful, timely feedback al the way. I probably would have avoided some mistakes and been more efficient as well. But I didn’t. So why am I posting now? I’m doing so as way to give back to this comm...

Grandpa's table #1: I have an idea

2188 days ago by mcoyfrog | 2 comments »

Not sure how to start this, i’ve never done a blog before and i’m not the best at writing/speaking LOL. So here goes. Many years ago my grandpa made a coffee table for us, i’ve been trying to figure it out and my best guess is between the years of 1972-1974. It has passed through all our family at one point or another, but the last several years its been in storage because its a hard table to make work in ones living area. You see its very large about 6’ long to be ...

Here is the mock up of the door and drawer fronts for the kitchen cabinets. These are paint grade cabinets and will be finished in white with a dark gray glaze to highlight the profile grooves. I am looking for the cabinet guys to critique the proportions, drawer and door placement and anything else that looks wrong :/ This is my first Cabinet job that i am being paid for and i don’t want it to have to be redone in a year or 2 because i made some idiotic mistake!Anyway the cabinet pictu...
