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...

Shop stuff #111: Something Roubo-esque

12-06-2017 08:14 PM by JimDaddyO | 6 comments »

Got the first step done today. Don’t let someone tell you that you can’t free hand mill a log with a chain saw. You just have to be a bit nuts to try it. Of course, the nail in the wood didn’t help much. I now have 2 slabs of ash, over 4” thick, about a foot wide inside the bark at the narrowest point and about 7’ 4” long. I hope to get 2 3×11 by 6’ long slabs for the top of the work bench. Something that I am getting video of and it wi...

Underway again...finally #17: Unbelievable - actually finished something...2 somethings even!

12-06-2017 01:45 AM by JohnTM | 0 comments »

Well, the title kinda gives my day away. But I finished the lumber rack…. the 2nd something is further down the entry. Here’s what I’m hoping to store on the rack – currently stored on the white table and 2 sawhorses behind my stack-of-4-pallets-laying-on-the-ground-worktable situated behind my Prius.Trying not to have things get wet seems to be a big motivator. I started bright and early (though I was not birght-eyed or bushy-tailed energy wise) – 8am, which ...

Underway again...finally #16: 95%, okay, 85% finished with lumber rack

12-05-2017 01:30 AM by JohnTM | 3 comments »

I must be the SLOWEST of the SLOW as far as woodworking goes. I got all 4 of the major/vertical supports built. They each look like this: As you can see, what probably looks like over-engineered joint supports is what I had to do because, no matter how much I tweaked my cuts, there were gaps (ex., a 45degree cut meets an adjoining edge fine IF AND ONLY IF the adjoining piece is tilted to match the 45degree edge). Poor workmanship on my part, obviously. Probably should have been more ...

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #11: A Lumber Mill Run

12-04-2017 04:13 AM by TungOil | 5 comments »

The Sapele that I ordered arrived at Hearne Hardwoods earlier in the week. I need about 300 bf for this set of chairs. I can get all of the components for a single chair from one 8/4 board as long as it is at least 9” wide and 10’ long, so I need at least 12 boards. Ed at Hearne brought in 400 bf of wide 8/4 quarter sawn Sapele for me to select my boards from. The boards are all 16-18 foot lengths, and 10”+ wide. At 16 to 18 feet long these boards are too big fo...
