L-Shaped Desk #1: Hello, world!

05-07-2017 04:23 AM by SauceMan | 0 comments »

Hi all! I’m working on my second furniture build. Now that I saw that my Smallder desk—completed photos didn’t turn into matchsticks, I’m braving another desk, this one for the kids’ room. I decided to go all fancy this time and actually sketch up my plans before building it. Here’s two views of the desk I intend to build: I also went to MacBeath today and bought some Cherry that I’ll make this desk out of. Can you picture the desk n...

Workbench #10: Leg vise

05-06-2017 11:20 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 1 comment »

Despite no updates in two months, I have actually been busy. One thing I worked on was the leg vise. I was originally going to make a parallel guide that I could pin at the bottom of the leg/vise. But all of that bending over made me decide that $100 for the Benchcrafted criss-cross hardware would be worth it. I had to cut a giant mortise in the leg to make room for the hardware. I started with the chisel and hammer, but turned to the router to get it done more quickly. I know that I say I pr...

Shaft Straightening for Old Arn

05-02-2017 09:25 PM by papadan | 14 comments »

Was reading the Arnfest thread Here and one of the posters mentioned having a bent shaft in an old drill press. This method doesn’t always work on some of the newer steels and alloys they use nowadays but has always worked on the good old arn shafts and rotors. I actually can’t tell who or where I learned this process, they weren’t supposed to share it with me. I have watched it done and done it myself quite a few times. To start with you need to have small holes in the end...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1833: Some Big Changes

05-02-2017 01:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As our small business gets larger and becomes more diverse, we are continually making changes – small and large – to accommodate expansion and keep everything running as smoothly as possible. This is one of those things that often goes by unnoticed by our customers but takes a great deal of time to accomplish. If we didn't do it, however, things would appear sloppy and awkward and it would be terribly difficult to find the things we have to offer. Our website would be a mess.&...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #10: Gluing Up and Pattern Routing the Table Halves

05-01-2017 01:20 AM by TungOil | 6 comments »

With my four leaves glued up it is time to move to the elliptical table halves. Each half consists of seven boards and is 35” wide. With so many glue joints to align I break the glue up into two parts. First I glue up four boards, and after that assembly is dry I add the remaining three adjacent boards to complete one half of the table top. A little cleanup with a belt sander levels the glue joints, then I switch to the ROS with an 80 grit disk to clean up the belt sande...

Smallder Desk #3: Smallder? SmallDONE!

04-30-2017 06:18 PM by SauceMan | 0 comments »

Hey LumberJocks! So I’ve finally finished my desk! The last step was to attach the desk top to the legs / aprons. I did so by cutting some button fasteners out of alder on my band saw. I went for the button fasteners with kerf. I’ve attached a couple of photos of the finished desk here. I’m also showing it tucked against the wall. Because this is my “virtual reality” room, and I didn’t want the desk to eat into the tracking area a...
