Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #9: Seat backs

02-05-2011 04:45 PM by sras | 13 comments »

Q: What goes slower than my progress on these stools? A: My blog on these stools! I have been making progress. Other projects and Christmas gifts provided distractions. And woodworking is still a hobby and has to wait for when there is time after everything else. I find that I am quite able to let a bigger project like this sit to one side for a few weeks and come back to it when I can. Next up are the seat backs. The last entry covered fitting the top and bottom rail of the seat bac...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #1: DIY convex plane - so far

02-05-2011 12:30 PM by daltxguy | 6 comments »

I am following Stefang’s master class on building a Nordic bucket using the medieval ways The first steps are to make the tools required to make the bucket. The most important tool is a plane to curve the inside of the staves of the the bucket and in true medieval fashion, this is being done with largely hand tools ( ok, and a bandsaw from well into the future). This blog series is to show my progress of the master class. Anyone can follow along and jump in any time to his c...

Entertainment Center #2: Wall Paneling and Mantel added

02-04-2011 06:35 AM by Luke | 2 comments »

Well the entertainment center wasn’t enough, so we decided to take the wall that was next to the entertainment center needed a mantel and some pizazz. It was just molded concrete around the fireplace and we never had a place to put stockings during Christmas season and such so we decided to make a mantel to put them on. Initially we were going to tear the concrete surround down but decided it was going to be too much work and we have a baby coming in a few weeks, I didn’t want t...

02-04-2011 04:50 AM by littlecope | 16 comments »

We had some pretty good snow here yesterday, so there wasn’t much to do…I thought to stroll through the shop… sometimes, things break, and I can salvage some of the material…What Luck!! One of these drying racks is a bonanza of dowels!! As for these pieces here… I’ve always wanted to try something with them… and it’s now or never… I cut them to the fullest length between holes ( 8 1/2”), and ended with this stack of “lumberR...

2011 School Competition Projects. #2: When will Janae get started on her project.

02-03-2011 10:03 PM by Jeff Waggoner | 1 comment »

I have had some people ask when Janae would be starting on her project. She plans to start on hers next week and we will start posting a blog for her at that time. In the meantime she has been trying to complete her clay sculpture for the competition. She’s going to kill me but I’m posting a picture of the incomplete project. It’s not done but you can see where she’s going with it. Oh and since this is a woodworking forum the base is a fine example of my craftsmansh...

Jordan's Project #2: Step #2 Building the Box

02-03-2011 03:19 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 9 comments »

10. I cut the two sides for my case, taking care to cut one small side from opposite ends of each board, to make the grain line up around the box. I cut them with a sliding stop to ensure that all pieces were exactly the same.11. I then put it together with rubber bands to test the joints and see if the grains were matching. I rubbed mineral spirits on the corners to test it.12. I measured all of the joints from corner to corner. The box was dead square. 13. I cut two inches o...

Jalen's Davenport desk. #2: #2: Decorative Base Blocks.

02-03-2011 02:28 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 0 comments »

I started the project by working on the base. It will have decorative blocks at all the corners and at the ends of the feet. The ones at the ends of the feet will be rounded. The wood I am using for this is 16/4 mahogany it was about 11 inches wide and a little over a foot long. 1. My jointer will only handle 8 inches so I had to plane sides flat and then join one at 90°. 2. Then cut to pieces 3 inches wide off of the blank with the table saw. 3. I used a number 4 smoothing plane...
