Work In Progress #2: Canasta Part Two

11-20-2011 06:11 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

So unfortunately I had not taken many pictures during the process of hand planing the curved door as well as cutting the dovetails for the carcass. I wanted the door to be thin, very thin, which ultimately led to many, many problems. I ended up with a final thickness of a bout 1/4 inch. While I was milling the door I did not have the wood move on me much at all, the Avodire I ended up getting was so incredibly stable I could do almost anything to it and it would not warp. The one thing ...

TEXTURED BOXES Part 1

11-20-2011 04:36 AM by kiefer | 2 comments »

Because I promised to do a blog on my textured boxes I took the time today to take some pics while I was working on four sets of tee boxes I am making for Christmas presents.See http://lumberjocks.com/projects/55844The process is very simple .I take the sized board which is 3mm/1/8” oversize in width and start cutting the texture from the centre of the board.Once I have aligned the saw fence on a trail piece I start grooving the boards in long length and by flipping the board end for en...

Cabinet style humidor for safe #1: Looking for input!

11-20-2011 02:06 AM by Mark D. | 1 comment »

Hi All, So to house my growing collection I have three humidors stashed throughout the house. I have a huge safe in my office with a pretty much unused section for storing rifles (which I no longer own). I’ve been toying with the idea of building a cabinet style humidor to go on that side of the safe. Below is a first attempt at designing it in sketchup, and the second pic is a sheet of 1/4” MDF with the elevation drawn for scale in the safe. Has anyone on here built anything sim...

Toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane #9: Finishing and Assembly

11-20-2011 01:27 AM by RandyMorter | 2 comments »

I decided to just wipe on some Danish Oil for these projects, mainly because I’m lazy and didn’t want to try to do the Arm-R-Coat. I MAY spray some shellac on them but I’m not committed to it at this point. Sometimes it seems easier to apply finish before the full assembly in order to get into all the nooks and crannies. Since I’m just doing a wipe on oil I figured I could proceed with glue up. First I glued the bottom wing to the fuselage. I marked the center of the front of the bottom...

Work In Progress #1: Canasta

11-20-2011 12:54 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

These images document some of the process of my most recent completed project which was a reliquary dedicated to my Mother. The requirement for this project was to design and make a Reliquary utilizing a door and a drawer. Our warm up project was to fit a drawer with half blind dovetails to a previously made carcass of MDF by our professor Rich Tannen. This was my first real go at dovetails. Some of the proportions were off as to what I wanted but I was pleased with the craftsmans...

Toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane #8: Main wing struts and propeller

11-20-2011 12:52 AM by RandyMorter | 0 comments »

I cut the main wing struts a bit over length, with the expectation that I’ll have to fit the struts on each plane. There are 8 struts that hold the top wing on – it doesn’t have any connection directly to the fuselage. I used store bought 3/16” dowels for the struts. I cut the rear two body-to-top-wing struts at 1-3/8” and the forward two body-to-top-wing struts at 1-1/2”. I cut the two vertical lower-to-upper-wing struts (the center struts) at 3-1/2” and the other four struts to 3-7/8”. I cu...

Twins! #3: Wood selection

11-19-2011 01:45 AM by Andy123 | 3 comments »

Well… I haven’t made and entry in a while. I’ve made a cut list and compared prices in Eugene, Oregon. Emerson Hardwood/Crosscut had the best prices. I made a detailed list of what wood I needed, in common thicknesses and widths. All I needed was laid out down to the last detail. I had my list in hand and I drove the 1.5 hours to Eugene to get my lumber. When I got there, Emerson had the widths I needed, but not the lengths. Crap! I had to redo the lumber list all in my hea...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #2: You NEED this mini-cabinet maker's bench! (Part 2)

11-18-2011 09:29 PM by StumpyNubs | 23 comments »

The camera comes back into the Stumpy Nubs Workshop to further document life in a small semi-professional shop… Includes tips on hand cut dovetails, utility chisels, resawing wide boards on the table saw, glue-ups, and a lot more! This is part 2 of Episode 1. It begins with making the CN Box, then continues the “amazing mini-cabinet marker’s bench”. My favorite part is the footage on cutting tiny dovetails by hand, big ones by machine, and huge ones with a hon...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #526: On the Road Again . . .

11-18-2011 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post will be brief (for me!) because we are heading out soon. We discovered that there is this huge craft show in Wolfville at Acadia University this weekend and we thought we would scout it out. The link to the show is Here It looks like a really cool event. The booth prices are nearly $300 which is mighty steep, and it is $6 to get in the door, but we hope that means that it will be a lot of quality stuff will be there. This is not a flea market! So we are loading ...
