four station desk #1: First look

06-23-2010 10:43 AM by 559dustdesigns | 3 comments »

I’m now working on a couple of desks for a Medical clinic. I’ve been working on this project for about 13 days now. I built this unit out of oak plywood and red oak lumber. I started this project by constructing the the upper portions first. I had to wait to receive my hardware before building the base cabinets. This set of desks is custom for the client, the first desk station on the left is 50” wide than there is (3) 40” wide stations one of the stations is going to ...

Off Kilter.. #2: Tight weave...

The time has come the Walrus said… to speak of many things.. of sailing ships and sealing wax and cabbages and Kings, of why the sea is boiling hot and whether pigs have wings… Now is the time for me to venture back into the workshop and whip up some new designs that have been flopping around in my head ever since I left for New Zealand.. I have had my holiday … spent time with my daughter and her family… met some wonderful folks… seen some magnificent sce...

My Roubo Build #12: Leg Glue Up & Holdfast Question

06-22-2010 08:39 PM by naomi weiss | 9 comments »

After a good day in the library, i decided to reward myself by gluing up one leg (it’s the only one with all 3 pieces dimensioned properly). I opted for the Schwarz’s gluing up accoutrement (part of a multi-grain cheerio box in my case) rather than my roller, as i didn’t want to wash it up after one use. Jury’s still out on the method. I did dare to change one piece of his advice, though, and i am throwing it out there for other beginners who find making jigs more inti...

Raised Garden Fencing #4: 10 Footers Stained

06-22-2010 07:44 AM by BlankMan | 3 comments »

Well I finally made some progress on this. I got side tracked with my 80 gallon rocks that arrived and then installed a rain gutter on my neighbors garage so that I can collect the water. So I have one installed and with the rain we’ve been getting it’s full and really haven’t had to use it, well, because of the rain we’ve been getting… Made the stand it sits on and the diverter on the downspout to divert the water to it only until it is filled then it goes down ...

Works in Progress #1: Clockwork

06-22-2010 04:05 AM by tyskkvinna | 7 comments »

As I have mentioned in a few places, I am in the middle of moving my workplace. Which is where my shop is. It’s going to be at LEAST another month before I get to unpack, maybe more. Things are in an annoying limbo. I went down to the old place today to bang out a few things. I had more ideas in mind but they have to wait. Humidity and I are having a raging battle and I’m on the loosing side of the war. Sigh. But, I had a stack of designs I had cut earlier that needed some b...

The making of a woodshop #8: Getting Close

06-21-2010 05:44 PM by JimNEB | 9 comments »

Well it’s been awhile since I posted on the project, but I wanted to be able to show some progress. I’ve gotten the outside all painted, and lights up. Here you can see the outside, finally matching the rest of the house. Here you can see the walls on the inside, I insulated and covered them with OSB. They then got a coat of primer and a couple coats in satin white, except for the south wall that I painted Avalanche blue. Just wanted to give it a little color. I was goi...

Table saw upgrade #1: Planning

06-21-2010 04:56 PM by dedalo | 16 comments »

Hi! everyone! I’m planning / building an upgrade to my table saw. I live in argentina so tools are very expensive, I started with a chinese very “cheap” table saw (usd 200+) and now I’m trying to upgrade it. I live so far the states that importing a complete incra system is out of the question. So started with some alluminium profiles to build something like 80/20 I saw here. I cannot get the slider systema around. Now the plan is to mix the profiles I have with an inc...

Bathroom Vanity Mirror #7: Cutting rabbet's for the mirror

06-19-2010 06:25 PM by mpmitche | 1 comment »

Now that the frame is has the morise and tenon’s complete I want to cut the rabbet’s before I permanently assemble it. I am just using my rabbet plane with a batten to keep me straight and at 90 degree. I noticed that as I worked down the rabbet slowly worked away from the batten. The next one I do i’m going to set the nicher down and see if it helps keep things on track better. Any tips on this would help. here is a photo of cutting the rabbet. and here is a shot of...

Bathroom Vanity Mirror #6: Joints Finished (almost)

06-19-2010 05:23 AM by mpmitche | 2 comments »

I finished trimming and fitting the mortise and tenons tonight. A few were out of square slightly but I was able to adjust them. Now those are a touch loose. I hope the drawboring will snug them back up but we’ll see when I get there. Now on to cutting the rabbit’s for the mirror to fit into. I’ll try to get some pictures of it soon.
