Oak Pub Table #4: Glue ups and sanding are finished

09-03-2010 05:25 AM by VinnieP | 1 comment »

I am ever so close to staining. All of the gluing and sanding is done as of now. I’m going to give everything a once over to see if there are any more spots that needed sanding. Otherwise, I’m ready to start staining. I am going to stain the top before attaching it. Here is the post all glued up: This is a close up of the arms. The groove you see was routed in. The buttons I made previously will help connect the top. This is how it looks without the top on: And h...

Workbench #3: AAAHHH!!! My Top!!!

09-02-2010 11:50 PM by Clay Ortiz | 10 comments »

I can’t believe what I did. The picture says it all!....I was concentrating so hard on the thumb nail feet that I didn’t notice the tracking on the sander! When I was finished banging my head on the table saw I moved the sander to my shop cart. I guess, on the bright side I didn’t have the top milled to the final thickness. It will just have to end up about 1/8” thinner than planned because of my stupid rookie mistake.....The base is coming along though. I really like ...

Just for Fun... #31: It ain't Z Z Top...

...But she’s got Legs!!Yesterday was a really good day!! My objective for the day, was to put some legs on this small table I’m building… Of course, I have no clue how to do that correctly, but nonetheless I proceeded… My vision was to have the legs splay out slightly, not only from side to side, but from front to back. First, I checked visually what angle looked appealing, and determined that a conservative 6° was in order… The number, shall be six…Began b...

Workbench #2: Milling the Wood

09-02-2010 05:29 AM by Clay Ortiz | 6 comments »

I have just started and am already realizing that this is going to take a looong time. This is the first large project I have taken on that requires all the material to be milled. I usually use a good bit of plywood because the real stuff is so expensive. On top of that, when my buddy Anthony asked me what size I wanted I said “just make it all 5/4”. I quickly realized how dumb that was ‘cause now I have to glue three pieces together for all the leg assemblies instead of two...

Workbench #1: Getting Started

09-02-2010 03:46 AM by Clay Ortiz | 3 comments »

My son and I are finally getting started on our workbench. I have been dreaming of one forever it seems. I originally wanted to collect enough dogwood for the top. But, after a while and a lot of effort I gave up on that. Then last year I ran into a guy at the lumber yard that said he had a band saw that he milled lumber with for some local guys. I explained how I liked to do some woodworking and that I would be interested in some walnut or maple. We exchanged numbers and not to long after th...

To begin with, I wanted to Thank Everyone for their kind and warm words, welcoming Debbie to the “Family” here!! Her and I go way back… We first met in 1977 and saw each other for about a year. We “Re-met” in December 2001 and have been steady ever since… It’s only natural for us to live together… Neither of us are half as happy or complete apart, as we are when we are together… :)I would love to post some “then and now” pix, b...

TV Stand

08-31-2010 12:44 AM by johnnymo | 3 comments »

A friend of mine asked me if I can make a small TV stand that will fit a speaker underneath it so naturally I said yes. I’m using stock material that has been laying around for about a year and this should be enough for the project at hand.So far I have planed and jointed all the boards to thickness, cut them to a rough dimension and glued together boards for the side and top using biscuits.These are for the stand sides.This will be for the oval top.Since I have a limited supply of cla...
