Table saw cabinet #1: Let's get rolling! Week 1.

02-21-2015 05:57 AM by Heisinberg | 0 comments »

Welcome to my blog. I finally decided to get to getting on a major upgrade to my shop. I’ve been quickly running out of usable and efficient storage. I also have found that having a router table in my table saw is double edged sword. Breaking down one setup to create another then back again has gotten old and is not the way I like to get things done. So I went to lumber yard and loaded up the truck with plywood and mdf. Table saw cabinet here we come. I took inspiration from many pla...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #2: Still gathering supplies

02-20-2015 09:33 PM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

So this is taking too long, I’m impatient. I called the wood supplier last week and was told that more 8/4 hard maple would be in the store on Tuesday. I called Tuesday and was told Wednesday. Called Wednesday and was told Thursday. I give up, so I went south to anther supplier in Eugene and I was only able to find one suitable board to complete the legs and one really nice 8/4 piece of walnut for the chop and the deadman. While I was there I got a call from the shop in portland that th...

Current Project #21: Bird Casket

02-18-2015 08:09 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

[Finished project here] I find myself building a casket for one of our pet birds that passed yesterday. The box itself is straight forward enough, but the stumbling block I had was how to close it. While an ash urn is usually closed from the bottom, a casket closes from the top. It took me some thinking, but I finally figured out that I need to hinge the lid and create a way to fasten it shut without going overboard. I’ll be creating my own hinges from wood blocks and a length of ...

MY FIRST PIECE OF FURNITURE-THE BUTT BENCH STEPSTOOL

02-18-2015 12:53 AM by DocSavage45 | 40 comments »

I want to give credit to several people who have inspired me, challenged me, and gave me visual tutorials to correct my mistakes. Mark Hillard, Bob, The Grizzman, Andy Halewood aka Andyboy, Benji Reyes,and Peter aka Woodbridge, Charles Neil, an Mark S The Wood Whisperer. Mark Hillard presented me with an observation that” maybe I would rather work on my tools then build a furniture piece. First, I got angry, because he busted me out, and then we discussed building this piece with t...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface #4: Glue Curing Box

02-17-2015 09:19 PM by ruddhess | 2 comments »

Here is what I did yesterday: made a long box to keep the wood and glue warm while curing. Everything I needed was laying close at hand – literally! I had four old closet doors that I used as shelves a long time ago that were standing in the corner. I had used a couple of them as a flat work place to start gluing up the boards for my slab. I found 8 little metal angle braces with screws that I had bought a while back and never used. It is 78” long (my 72” boards fit j...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1499: After the Storm

02-17-2015 12:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After the last few days of snow and wind, it finally seems to have calmed down here. As I look outside this morning, everything is calm and the sun is shining brightly. What a beautiful winter day it is! I am happy to say that our winter storm wasn't that bad for us. While I know it was a hard on many (and I feel badly for that) we were fortunate that we were safe and warm and power was uninterrupted throughout the duration. Adele was able to get to the wharf finally and check on the...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface #3: Glueing up pairs of boards and then glueing up quads

02-17-2015 02:44 AM by ruddhess | 1 comment »

This is the first two boards glued together the night before this picture. I have taken the bolts out and everything looks solid. Time will tell. This first one was probably the worst for glue coverage as I was in a hurry – it has been too long since I glued boards together. I keep thinking that if I didn’t hurry, the glue would set up and I’d have to do everything over again. But I think it will still be OK. I used plenty of glue on both sides and the only part I’...
