Building a Credenza #4: Completed Dovetail Joinery

1563 days ago by Blake | 20 comments »

This is where I left off last time: Chopping the tails I cut most of the waste out with a coping saw and then clamped down the tail board to my bench to chop out the rest: First it is necessary to test the sharpness of your chisels… yep they are sharp. (I accidentally grazed my chisel when I reached across my bench for a pencil) After chopping the tails: The two sides of my case: Transferring the tails to the pins I had a little bit of a dilemma ...

Built-In Bookcases and Mantel Surround #1: Project Overview.

1563 days ago by Jonathan | 0 comments »

About a week ago, I finally began the built-in bookcase and mantel surround project for our living room that I’ve been talking about in a lot of other posts. I need to post less and work more, I think ;) I originally started a blog on it here: http://lumberjocks.com/JonathanG/blog/13322 but have since decided to start over. You can check out that initial blog for a couple of pictures of the space the project will be going into, as well as my thoughts on everything from several months ag...

Gracie lectern #5: drawer and knob

1564 days ago by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

Well it seems like this project is taking forever, and I still have forever to go. I’m glad it’s been fun. Here is the dovetail drawer and the knob. The drawer is hand cut and the pull is turned and carved. I thought the “G” would be a good addition to the knob to go with the theme of the cabinet. <div></div>

Bed #6: Hey look, it looks like a bed now

1564 days ago by tyskkvinna | 8 comments »

Started off by sanding and finishing the other frame part. And then.. putting things together! O.o Did the other side.. Like my support for that piece? Couple slabs of 8/4 maple on a milk crate. Hey, it worked. I had to fiddle with this a fair amount because I really had no idea what I was doing. Magically, it worked. Also – the frame is FAR sturdier than I was anticipating. Awesomesauce. The brackets are really snug (snug enough that I had to re-screw a couple spots so...

Shop (Garage) Redo #1: Pete mutters to self..."remember to enable scripts on wife's computer before typing blog entrys

1564 days ago by PASs | 1 comment »

Ok, must figure out how to move first entry in this blog into the series…after pounding the keyboard for an hour last night to vent my frustration on my week-old, week-behind shop remodel, I find that it didn’t post as a series because I didn’t click on the teeny, tiny window banner that popped up when I selected “start new series” at the beginning of my electronic tirade. But, not to worry, will figure it out later…must type now, caffeine levels are high, ...

The Wine Rack #7: Going around in semicircles

1564 days ago by Todd Clare | 6 comments »

Made some more progress on the wine rack this weekend. My goal was to complete the small racks that hold the necks of the bottles. Each required 5 semicircular holes at 1 1/2” diameter each. I was smart enough to realize that the centers of the large rack holes would be the same as the small ones, so I lined them all up against a board clamped to my bench (to keep them aligned) and marked the center lines. Lesson learned: I really need a drill press table. Up to now I’v...

The Great Woodshop Redo

1565 days ago by PASs | 2 comments »

This is the last will and testament of my sure to be over budget, behind schedule attempt to bring order to the chaos that is my shop/garage. I started this project last weekend but was too ashamed, and tired to actually blog it. But I think the blogging will help my psychosis.I’m sure I’ll rewrite things in following posts. But the creative juices are flowing (64 ounces of Diet Dr Pepper can do that to your brain) so I’m diving in. Buckle up….cause this train has no t...

Just for Fun... #15: A Quick Assembly and the inevitable Finishing Slow Down...

1565 days ago by littlecope | 15 comments »

After blasting out the parts for the new Birdhouse last week on the band saw,The assembly went just as quickly. The parts were taken home, the necessary access hole added, a top post/hanging bracket fashioned, and pilot holes were drilled for the attachment of the slats for the roof.I forgot how much fun building a birdhouse can be!! They’re for the birds, after all, and they will never be overly critical… :)With the assembly finished, it was on to the finishing department… ...

Butcher Block Kitchen Table #5: Breadboard Ends

1566 days ago by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

Purplev pointed out something in a comment on my last blog entry for this, and it was something that had occurred to me – however I chose to ignore it on the basis of “I’ve seen other tables built the same way, so mine shouldn’t have any problems…”. Of course, that’s idiotic, and I’m man enough to admit it :) So, I started thinking of potential solutions, and when it hit me it was so obvious I kicked myself for not thinking of it sooner –...
