I have long admired Sheraton furniture, I believe in America this inspired an impressive “New Style” called “Federal” I have always wanted to build a piece and having admired the skill of many of the builders of fine projects on this site. Now retired, I thought it was time to fulfill this ambition so I have at last made a start. I’ve decided I’ll inlay my designs rather than veneer, Paul the Shipwright is an absolute master with a Chevalet and Lumberjocks ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1838: Happy Mail and New Projects!

06-08-2017 12:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I'll begin today's post with some news that I just found out. My photos source for all my blog posts (Image Box) just informed me when I signed in that it is "closing" as of June 30th. Even though I haven't been blogging much lately, I used to do so just about every day, so you can imagine the number of photos that I have stored there. What it will mean to you, my readers is that when you go to my older blogs, the images that use that address (all except

Moxon Benchtop Bench - Part 3 - End

06-07-2017 11:54 AM by Daniel Solowiej | 2 comments »

Hello everyone !This is the third and last part of the built of my Moxon benchtop bench (a Moxon vise benchtop bench). Today I share with you the making of the handles and the finishing. To make the handles I considered to embed the nuts in a floral shape, using the leftover wood of the legs, (guayubir√° “Patagonula americana”).It is evident that at this stage of the work, we can make a perfect flower, symmetrical, neat, but above all cold.However, to bring something more natura...

Workbench #13: The Gapstop

06-05-2017 01:03 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 5 comments »

Stating the obvious here, but Benchcrafted’s split-top Roubo bench uses two slabs for the top. Rather than joining them, they are kept separate throughout the build. Another component, the “gapstop” goes between them, and offers some additional functionality. This is one of the features that sold me on the Benchcrafted design. I bought some nice birch to use for the gap stop. It has a bit of color that will add a little contrast between the white 2×4s of the rest of ...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #7: Back is completed

06-04-2017 04:35 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, a little bit of catching up.. Had a couple strong armed ( and back) youngsters ( 22 and 24 yr olds) haul the case up out of the shop… And get the Boss’ approval. Finished pantry will go against the wall… And replace this “too small” cupboard. Today, I decided to bring things upstairs to cut the last piece for the back. I have a saw bench outside on the back patio. Hauled the tools upstairs with no problems…..getting the back up th...

Workbench #12: Adding the Shelf

06-04-2017 01:05 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 4 comments »

With the base complete and the shelf ledgers in place, I wanted to get the shelf added. The shelf would be really useful in that it would allow me to set my planes nearby but out of the way. Ok, so the spot I’ve been storing my planes is only about four steps away, but still, having them within reach seems like a great advance. It’ll surely make me more productive, right? I’ve been using 2×4s from Home Depot to build the majority of the bench. I intended to use the l...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #6: Shelves done, back is started

06-02-2017 04:29 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, got all the shelves done.. even after having to fix a couple.. Shelf #2 and #3 needed adjusted a bit….right sides were a bit lower than the left, and #3 was the worst. Errors tend to add up faster than the IRS. Once the fix was done, I added cleats for shelf #4 and #5…..that was the easy part. I used a box of Mash Potato Mix to set the heights of the cleats, and a framing square to to the cleats level front to back. Today, I had to clear off the bench.. Added a...

I Love Scuba...taking a break from a remodel! (Remodel Pics)

06-01-2017 06:20 PM by woodburnigtlp | 0 comments »

Hi Friend! I know for most of us here, woodworking isn’t our only hobby or job we make a living off of! For me, one of my many hobbies is scuba diving! I have been in the midst of a kitchen remodel (more on that below) for a couple of months now and could sure use a trip right about now! I have been certified for almost 15 years now and it is one of the most exciting hobbies I have. I have been all around the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, as well as a few Pacific Coast dives. Being i...
