Finnished the Plaque! Well it is finnally done. I kept getting side tracked with other things around the house. This is going to a dear freind of my wife and mine. He has been running the center for the blind in Yuma,AZ for the last 25 years. He is retireing on June 27th. This startd as an “Unknown Wood / Unknown Project” and turned into a dedication. I want to thank everyone who helped this design come into being. Thank You. The Angel is made up of the following woods...

Craftsman Style Framed Mirror #3: Making the corbels & screwing up the cove molding

07-08-2013 12:29 AM by Chris McDowell | 3 comments »

I had a major screw up in this segment and was so aggravated that I almost scrapped the whole project and started over. But that would’ve cost another $21 bucks for wood, so I had to make it work, which I did, and I’m not overly happy about the way it turned out, but it’ll have to suffice. You’ll see what I mean in a minute. After I finished all the cuts on the cove molding I sanded it to get rid of burn marks. Then I started on the corbels. The first ...

My Garage/Work Shop Makeover #12: Dust Collection for the sanders

07-25-2013 01:33 AM by MT_Stringer | 3 comments »

With the miter saw station almost complete, I had to stop and build a couple of coolers. Today I worked on setting up the dust collection for the sanders. It appears I will have room for a HF belt sander, the 1 inch strip belt sander, and the Oscillating sander. All three will fit nicely behind the miter saw fences. With the miter saw station in place, I have about 7 inches of room from the back of the cabinet to the wall. So… :-) I devised a plan to rout the dust from the miter...

Bridal chest #3: Cover and cedar

07-21-2014 08:40 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

today i got the chest cover routed. This is a simple chest so I did a simple edge. A plain cove. .. . I braced the underside of the cover with maple cross pieces. Four recessed screws and glue. .tapered plugs will fill the screw head holes. I’ll chisel them off and sand them tomorrow after the glue dries. .I picked up a couple of boxes of aromatic cedar at home depot. Pretty expensive stuff I might add. It’s glued and pin nailed in. the pin nails of course are l...

Just a plain plane

07-13-2010 04:37 PM by BigTiny | 3 comments »

Hi all. Well, I took the plunge and bought some 2 by maple and some 1 by purpleheart with the intention of making a wood body bench plane. The maple is a true, full 2 inches (more or less) and the purpleheart is about 7/8. I figure on splitting the PH down to 1/4 for the sideplates and using the maple for the body. No separate sole is planned. Haven’t decided on a blade yet. Might go Lee Valley as they have a local outlet…

Making a valet #1: Cutting the mortises

04-19-2012 12:00 AM by Chelios | 3 comments »

So I am out walking the mall and I like to go in the furniture stores and check out the different styles. I came across a valet. I had never seen one before but the purpose was cool and the piece seems real easy. If you have never seen one they are all over google images. As I do this build I thought I would doment it in a series since I plan on using nothing but hand tools- thanks for looking

Living Room Display Shelves #1: "The old cliche about the devil"

01-14-2013 04:24 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

The devil is in the details. That’s especially true for an impatient lout like me. When it’s close to being done, I want it done now! I decided to work backwards. My shelves are going to be surrounded by the same style of trim I made for my home. I decided to use a little facetted rossette pattern in the major areas. I’ll let you see for yourself a little further down. I started with solid cherry flooring – $1.00 a foot. I had to strip the finish with a belt sand...

Two boards, and some tools: working down some rough sawn wood

04-09-2013 06:09 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

I have two planks. One is a Black Walnut 4/4 by 6” by 30” long. There other? Well, here is a clue Lovely, ain’t it? More on that one in a bit. I went after the Walnut plank, looking to smooth the faces of it first. A little time with a #6 small jointer, and a #5 Jack plane, and one face was ready for a smooth plane Bandsawn from a log awhile ago. Saw marks were easy to clean off. The edges were a little more work. One was almost done, just had a l...

My Start #4: The Move

06-06-2011 03:03 PM by macatlin1 | 3 comments »

When I last left off I had moved my shop to the garage and started doing projects. Then my wife Linda started looking for a job out of state. Soon she was interviewing in North and South Carolina and in Tennessee. Meanwhile, I started deciding what to take and what to sell. My small metal lathe had been occupying a space on the floor, gathering dust between the times I used it for small jobs so I decided to make a case for it and all the little accessories that go along with it. Somethin...
