More working with Pine #5: Posts are getting done

05-21-2016 06:46 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Side #1 was completed today.. The tenons go into “housed’ joints, where I trim the area around the stretcher, where it meets the post. I just saw a bit on either side, chisel a flat spot, ajust the tenon for length. Clamped the other rocker to the completed side. had some marks to transfer over to the next set of posts. After messing up the notches in the rocker the last time by doing the posts first. This time around, I made the notches first. Set the square to...

Compass Deck #1: The Beginning

05-21-2016 03:14 PM by Nate Meadows | 10 comments »

This build was not a rational one what so ever! As most of you know I was/am up to my head in projects already; so why build a deck? There really is a simple answer. I love my wife and I want peace in my house!:). Theresa really wanted a deck, and it was not going to wait. So, if I was going to build it, I was at least going to build it the with a Nate twist!:) I hate doing things twice and if you know me at all, I think outside most boxes of normalcy. The first step was getting things squ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1735: Choosing a Focus

05-18-2016 12:48 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

As I sit here this morning, I can't help but feel content and happy about my life. Certainly things are not 'perfect' all the time – that would be unnatural – but when I look at things overall, the important things are going well, and I can hardly complain about trivial things that don't really matter in the big picture of my life.  My loved ones are all healthy, (Both those with and without tails!) our business is doing well enough to keep it going, and we ar...

More working with Pine #4: Back at it, finally

05-18-2016 01:51 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, after rehabbing a few other items from the Birthday Rust Hunt…..time to resume that rocking Chair project? Figured i’d need some 4/4×4 stock to make a few things for the back and seat. Been using the bandsaw…it was making a lot of racket, got to looking around…and wound up tearing it down. Lower thrust bearing was out too far. rubbing on the frame. Got it back, the tracking reset, so i had to work on the upper guides as well. Might get a new b...

Rediscovering Woodworking #3: More Hybrid than Power Journey

05-18-2016 12:13 AM by Tim Royal | 0 comments »

It was suggested in the comments on my first blog 2 years ago that I seek a more hand tool direction because of almost non-existent space to work. I AM a hybrid woodworker and love handtools, but have found that it is actually more and not less expensive to be completely hand tool oriented, primarily because larger projects using rough lumber are so labor and mainly space intensive as to be impractical when you are essentially forced to do most of your work outside in nice weather. What do yo...

My Version of a Moxon Vise

05-17-2016 02:23 AM by builtinbkyn | 12 comments »

I decided to make a moxon vise for the bench. I figured I’d make it a mini-bench that mounts to my workbench, so it would provide a taller work surface as well as a larger clamping area for dovetailing drawers and panels. I planned this a few weeks back. The Benchcrafted hardware is certainly very nice, but I thought I’d see if I could make one on the cheap. So I searched to Amazon to see what I could come up with for the hardware. I ended up using CNC components and some ...

Greene & Greene Magazine Rack - my "own" design #1: Basic design layout

05-16-2016 09:31 PM by Mike_D_S | 5 comments »

My wife has some books, magazines and a few other things she uses often and they tend to sit on the table or off to the side of where she normally sits to read. She asked me to build her a magazine stand in a similar style to the Aurora night stand I recently finished. So I took up the challenge to do something in a similar style which would have obvious visual ties to the Aurora table, but not a copy. I spent some time looking through my reference books and gathering my ideas. Then I d...

Cherry Nightstand #4: Case Assembly

05-15-2016 06:45 PM by ilyac | 1 comment »

Will all the mortise and tenons done I could start putting the cases together. I started with the front and back, once those were done I put the frame together and then cut the long center divider piece and those matching mortise and tenons, for the sides to fit since my mortise location was not dead on. Between all the dry fits and moving around I noticed that the top mortises were starting to weaken, in retrospect I should have left more material on the top of the piece and it’...
