Shaker Buffet

Built from Poplar, and Birch ply Top is yet to be built, but with most likely be a breadboard design. I will still need to decide on the a finish and catches for the doors. Top considerations are distressed paint finish, with lee valley extruded double ball catch. I have low expectations that I can successfully finish the project (poplar/birch ply)with dyes, and or stains. I am preparing myself for a distressed painted finish. My other concern is fitting the doors, as i am unsu...

Bent-Lamination Dining Room Table #3: Project Update

11-25-2011 01:34 PM by JordsWoodShop | 0 comments »

View Original post here Well I managed to get a full days work done today and all I can say is progress. The legs are cut to size and tenons are cut, the solid foot is almost complete (just waiting on a new router bit), the victorian-ash spacer is cut to size, as well as the mortises being cut, not bad for one days work.I still have to cut the spacer that runs across the top of the legs, and get the dowels prepared for the bending but once thats done the legs will be pretty close to co...

First Ever Commision - The Podium #2: Updated Cutting Diagram

11-22-2011 10:09 PM by Kerry Drake | 5 comments »

Thanks to the sharp eyes and friendly advice of my fellow LJ’ers I have updated the cutting diagram for the podium to make better use of the grain direction. I have also added another piece to the diagram, I figure I will double up the bottom “shelf”, where the caster are going to screw in from the bottom.

Ti Tree Lazy Larry #2: Cutting the Ti Tree Round...

11-22-2011 09:48 PM by degoose | 11 comments »

Once the glue was dry… I left the blank in clamps for 24 hours… to make sure…it was off to the bandsaw and onto the circle cutting jig.. Just a matter of rotating the blank on the pivot point…. And a few minutes later it is in the round… Pop it through the drum sander, sand the edges using the circle sanding jig on the disc sander A little mineral oil to bring out the colour and you can see how fantastic the grain really is..

Workshop Development #35: The library is done!

11-22-2011 06:33 AM by dbhost | 2 comments »

I posted a project up on it, but since the recent projects change, they no longer come up in chronological order… Oh well… That’s okay. Take a peek at my project page It’s just a simple box with a couple of dividers, a cleat and a spacer to hold it to the wall, and plenty of paint to keep it from making the shop feel more crowded. One thing I was VERY concerned about was the mortiser handle, which thankfully clears no problem...

Workbench #17: Completion

11-22-2011 05:17 AM by CartersWhittling | 22 comments »

Hello, this is probably my last workbench blog entry, now that my bench is complete! Like I said in my last blog, the workbench has been complete a couple weeks before this post on November 12. With my last post I had wrote about completing the base. After I had the base assembled, glued up, and drawbored I placed the bench top onto the base. Previous to putting the top on the base I had put one coat of boiled linseed oil on the underside of the top. The top is removable from the base, I deci...

Veneered Sofa Table #6: Experimenting with Veneer Finishes

11-21-2011 11:33 PM by SPHinTampa | 8 comments »

This weekend was more like chemistry class than shop time. I have been experimenting with finishes for the rotary cut bubinga (kevazinga) panels. If I could get a clear coat that did not change the raw wood color, I would be happy. But so far most of my choices have darkened up the raw wood. I am really looking for a clear wood finish that enhances the grain without darkening it. Or a decent coloring that keeps the contrast against the mahogany border without obscuring the grain. ...

First Ever Commision - The Podium #1: Drawings and Cutting Diagram

11-21-2011 10:49 PM by Kerry Drake | 11 comments »

People at work have started to notice I do woodworking stuff at home (it could be I bring in every project when I finish it and set it on top of my cubicle wall…). Now it seems they need a podium for the meeting room and wanted to know if I would submit a proposal to build one. Here is the basic design: And I figured it out to be 2 sheets of plywood and some 1×4 trim. All told I have it at $179.12 for materials.

Instead of cutting perpendicular to the down chevron L to R… I cut down almost parallel to the other chevron R to L.. This give a totally different pattern.. As this was a test it will be rather small.. so it will have a frame around it.. tomorrow…
