Shop stuff #113: Something Roubo-esque Pt 1 It's a long video

12-18-2017 09:41 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

They are taking down some dead and dangerous trees around our place. If you have been following you will know that I have plenty of firewood. I decided to take a section on one tree and mill it up into slabs, freehand, with a chain saw. Not a job for the faint of heart. Then I proceed to “take the ugly” out of it with a router and sled. I am calling this Part One of “Something Roubo-esque” as I am hoping it is the start of my workbench build. Parts of this series...

An Attempt to Replicate a Simple Tool Box

12-13-2017 03:46 AM by GLowz | 3 comments »

What I thought would be a simple little project has now turned out to be anything but simple. My thoughts were to reproduce an old tool box of mine and give it to my son as a gift. He always loved that old box, as did I, but since it has been in my possession he has only been able to view it from afar. At first glance I saw that it was thin with mitered corners, old hinges and a simple hook and eye latch. As I began to reconstruct the box I noticed that this wasn’t just handmade dove...

Shop stuff #112: A simple shelf (hand tool only build)

12-12-2017 01:08 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Well, I uploaded this one a couple of days ago but with the new algorithms on You Tube I put it as private first. They are all getting tagged as unsuitable for advertisers and then you have to request a manual review, when it passes, then make it public. More hoops to jump through. With the few dollars on You Tube I make I can’t afford to miss those first few days that it generates, and even that is not much. I probably don’t get a cup of coffee per video…lol. This on...

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #12: Roughing It

12-12-2017 03:29 AM by TungOil | 9 comments »

The sapele has been in the shop for a week acclimating and my CNC cut templates will not be ready for a while, so I got busy roughing out parts. I started with the largest parts, the back legs. A leg blank 7 inches wide will allow me to cut both back legs for a chair from a single board, helping with grain and color match. Several of the boards were a bit over 14” wide, allowing me to get two pairs of legs from each cut length. To be sure I have spare material in case of an er...

Just for Fun... #100: The Art of making Complexity out of Simplicity...

12-11-2017 02:54 AM by littlecope | 4 comments »

The current box was/is scheduled to have two trays made for it…For the sides of the trays, some old slats were appropriated from a louvered door,and cut down to size (Height-wise) on the Scroll Saw… The plan is to use very thin Pine for the bottom of these trays, thus a dado is required to hold the Pine in Place… Firstly, a very small (1/8”?) router bit was attempted, with extremely dubious results! If I ever need “Faux Wormholes” at least I’...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #9: Finish work complete, ready for delivery

12-09-2017 02:16 AM by Reinan | 2 comments »

I coated this piece in a couple coats of 1# dewaxed garnet shellac, but I should have thinned them further for the top because I had streaking of patches that were coated more heavily than others, so I did a wash coat of straight alcohol and leveled the shellac to even it out. It worked, but then I had to deal with runs all over the edges and drips on the bottom lip. Next time I try that on a light colored wood I will build up with a less colored shellac and add the darker as a top coat for...

Segmented Pyrography vessel #2 #1: The building process.

12-08-2017 07:32 PM by Julian | 8 comments »

This vessel is made from maple and macassar ebony. My goal was to make a square wave pattern with a tilt. This turned out to be more tricky than I realized but finally figured it out. The center of the vessel will be burned with a pattern I found in a Youtube video. The pattern is called Ududu by Ellen Wolters. First step is to draw out the design from which I will get all my measurements. The final result turned out a little different. The vessel was made in two parts and then glued t...
