Mission-style mahogany desk #1: A view of the legs and progress on the desktop

11-17-2017 07:56 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

I talked about this project in my recent blog, and thought I’d give a shot at actually trying to blog a build; something that I’m not strong at because I don’t always think to take pictures of things while I’m doing the work, and the pictures REALLY help visualize whatever’s gong on in the shop. As always, comments, suggestions, or witty reparte’ are always welcome. Below is a snapshot of my ongoing sketchup-work-in-progress plans for the mission-style d...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #6: Aprons and Legs

11-16-2017 02:15 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Guess I forgot to post this one, my progress last week on the table base. Using my shop made taper jig, I tapered the insides of all 4 legs and started cutting the cross laps in the aprons where they meet in the legs, everything went very well, aprons squared up nicely and fit the legs well. I’m happy with how sturdy everything ended up, almost no movement in any direction even in dry fit. I am waiting to glue it until I decide how I will slot the inside face of the apron for the table top...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #5: Breadboard ends

11-16-2017 02:03 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

After a few days of analyzing how to cope with the cup in the table top panel that appeared after glue up. I arrived at the conclusion that my original plan of using a dado blade on the table saw wasn’t going to work for machining the tongues. So I ordered a pattern bit from Whiteside machine to try and use a router and a known flat reference surface to machine the tongues after I clamped the panel flat. Worked pretty well, tongues are straight but not as uniform in thickness as I had hope...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #4: Thoughts in SketchUp

11-12-2017 09:35 PM by Bluenote38 | 3 comments »

Temps dropped, cold in the shop so refocused to more indoor activities. Friday (November 10th), of course, was the U.S. Marine Corps 242nd Birthday – Semper Fi Brothers past, present, and future, and may we serve 300 more with honor. Did the Vets day thing too on Saturday served breakfast to a host of Korea and Vietnam Vets and some of the few remaining WWII Vets too. I have to say that I met a guy who was on the USN Nautilus. The first nuclear sub and the first to sail under the pola...

Getting my tools ready #26: Maple, Murphy, and Me,

11-12-2017 01:19 AM by DocSavage45 | 22 comments »

Murphy always has a treat in store for me. My friend CharlieK (on LJ’s) lives in MN/St.Paul area. A town called Fridley. He had purchased a trailer load of rough milled hard maple and he had a lot left over which he was wanting to sell to get it out of his garage Took my 1990 3/4 ton truck and traveled 124 miles to have lunch and pick up some maple. Had a full truck bed up to the top of the sides of maple and I was returning home in the dark. About 11 miles from home my fro...

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #9: Pattern Sander Setup and Bandsaw Upgrade

11-11-2017 04:14 AM by TungOil | 6 comments »

With my pattern sanding technique proven and a length of UHMW-PE tubing delivered I got to work making a bushing for the spindle sander. I roughed out a 1” piece of tubing to start. There is just enough clearance between the sanding drum and the table insert to fit a bushing. I turned the bushing on the lathe to a nice press into the existing table insert. The bushing provide a 1/4” offset from the sanding drum which will make design of the patterns easier. ...

Frame saw, maple scraps #1: Parts...

11-09-2017 11:52 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

This may be a short blog….decided to use some of the Maple 1×4s in the scrap pile.. There was a 1×4 about this long….I ripped it right down the center, to make a pair of handle blanks. I had a few old Butcher’s Meat saws just rusting away… This one is the larger one still sitting around. Two others supplied a few parts, and an 18” long saw blade. Drilled a couple holes, bandsaw to rough ly shape each handle…there was a longer 1×4...

Frame Saw #1: Building a frame saw

11-08-2017 12:39 AM by Schade | 4 comments »

Now that i have a proper Work Bench I decided to build a frame saw so I have something to use to build future projects, such as a tool chest.I watched several videos online and also bought a video about making frame saws by Isaac from Blackburn tools.I liked the looks of Isaac’s but I didn’t like the way the blade mounted. So I decided to mount the blade in the handles like Paul Sellers did in his design. I used a bunch of scrap wood from other projects I’ve done over...
