Router Table by Julie #1: deciding what I want and don't want on the new table

02-10-2011 08:57 PM by ~Julie~ | 9 comments »

I need a new router table. I had made my first one but realized it was not the strongest design and needed a lot of improvements and additions. It was a basic four legged table with aprons and a small crosspiece between the legs near the bottom. I don’t have a photo because I’ve already taken it apart. The old table had aprons that fit with tenons into the four legs’ mortises. Because of the amount of stress the table received from being dragged around the shop (no ca...

Man Cave Work Shop #2: The Properties of Wood

02-10-2011 06:44 PM by IceCactus | 1 comment »

I learned an important lesson here today. Wood shrinks, especially when you expose end grain and drill holes in it. I decided on this project that it would be easier if i just batch created parts. It would be less setup and less hassle. So i resawed a couple 2×4’s down to 1” thick x 2-9/16” wide and 5-11/16” long. Drilled my 3 holes per the instructions of the plan and threw it in a box. I only work on the weekends for the most part, so it took me about 2 weeke...

Daily Progress. #7: Back to Recording Progress.

02-10-2011 08:31 AM by GregP | 3 comments »

My last couple projects I got a little bogged down and didn’t get to recording them, so this is kind of jumping back on the horse as far as keeping track. Anyway, the project I’m working on right now is one I’ve done before. I’m making a replica of this one that I did about a year ago; Here’s my progress on it for today; The top half glued up, still have to glue those two slabs together and cut. The face frame cut to width and length, on a...

Just for Fun... #44: The Experiment Works!!

02-10-2011 04:19 AM by littlecope | 12 comments »

This experimental box that I’ve been trying out sat idle all weekend, what with work and all…This morning, I put on the top course and then fashioned the lid…This box is a little different, at least to me… Usually, I spend a lot of time making the sides of a box fit right together… and then there’s a separate “assembly phase”...Here, it was all assembly and when the walls were up, it’s DONE… almost…The walls were built, but not...

Grandma's Picture Frame #1: Thinking through the Design & Dimensions

02-09-2011 06:14 PM by spunwood | 1 comment »

My mother suggested that I make a picture frame for my grandmother’s 100th birthday. The party is in march, and the four of us (Stephanie, Beatrice, Elijah, and I) will be flying to New York. I looked online for table saw frames because I do not have much skil with or many bits for a router, and no router table. What I found was: http://americanwoodworker.com/blogs/projects/archive/2009/12/04/tablesaw-picture-frame.aspx This is a lovely and classic frame. The wood is beaut...

Garden Bench #1: Construction1

02-09-2011 01:13 PM by michaelkaragiozis | 2 comments »

Hi folks. I decided about a month ago to start building a garden bench to replace a broken one that we bought from a shop near my place. Shop bought garden bench was cheap and flimsy. This is my progress so far. I am nearly finished with the construction. Just the seat rails and Back slats and that’s it. Front and Back legs are laminated because I didn’t have stock thick enough. Wood is unknown, probably some sort of oak. Arms are probably red wood I think...

Lauren's Bed #2: Drawer Slides and Doors

02-09-2011 05:48 AM by Jesse Schutt | 3 comments »

Like many of you, I ended up catching a case of the winter flu last week. So that forced me to spend my “day off” in bed recovering. But that is past me now and I was able to spend a little time in the shop and work on my daughter’s bed. There really isn’t anything incredibly unique here, but I wanted to share some of the photos of the progress. I found some drawer slides on Amazon for reasonably cheap. I ended up paying around $75 for ten sets of 18”...
