Just for Fun... #85: Plotting and Scheming...

09-02-2014 10:07 PM by littlecope | 13 comments »

So a new project has begun, a Commissioned piece this time…Until I receive permission, I’d rather not discuss all the details, but you clever bunch will pretty easily discern what is being made here…Some Wood was secured, Bubinga that had been milled last Winter… When the two matched pieces were butted together, they seriously didn’t jibe, so trued ends were cut by marking and cutting them using a Square and Rule… A good deal of Plotting and Scheming th...

Education #2: Sidetable part 2

09-02-2014 12:59 PM by CreekOne | 2 comments »

After a day of laying parquet i realise that the angle is off, just slight but enough to make the herringbone pattern a bit off. So now im building a shooting board to fix this problem… You have to love how you always enda upp building all crazy jigs with extreme presition and it all fails with a wobbling sawblade.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1394: A Perfect World - Panel 13

09-02-2014 12:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I took the day to do some catching up on things around the house. After the previous few days of working, I needed to do some things like tidying up things and some cooking. My neighbors had given me some zucchini and Keith's mom some fresh blueberries, so I made some bread with them. I think they came out nice, but they were almost too moist. Although are certainly edible. It seems that summer is going to go out with a bang this year. While it was overcast and windy, it was quite dr...

Current Project #4: Conference Room Table

09-02-2014 10:56 AM by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

I may add a few photos to this as I go along because it’s going to be long. The photo above shows the edging being glued to two sides of the plywood after my initial cut to size. I’m building a nice table for the library/meeting room in our church. The library was painted and enhanced by a few dark cherry bookshelves a few years ago, so I thought I’d replace the two old folding table with something a bit nicer. After This I get to work out a chair design that is nic...

On a happier note, i finnished all the 400 pieces of Honduras mahogany veneer for the table project.Today i will lay a test parquet to see if it gets tight enough.

Maloof Low Back Chairs #3: Scraping and Sanding

09-01-2014 11:17 PM by Dave G | 4 comments »

After what you saw last time I got busy with the cabinet scrapers. I used three, primarily. The most useful was a very flexible straight one to get into the chair seat and flex around the leg curves. I had to use a french curve scraper on some of the seat curves. And a medium flex straight scraper was pretty handy too. I sharpened them all at the beginning and resharpened the flexible one once. I spent 9 hours scraping. Then I started sanding: 180, 240, 320, 400, 600 grits. ...

Cherry Curved-Front Desk #1: Design Down, Getting Legs Right

09-01-2014 05:24 PM by CharlesA | 5 comments »

This is my second project progress blog. I am a hobbyist who likes to try to build things beyond my skill set. I started this desk in the spring, then got waylaid by the live edge table I needed to finish. Today I started again. I am making a Curved-Front Desk from the Fine Woodworking plan. The first step is to do the legs. I got ahead of myself in the spring and did the shaping of the legs before I did the mortises. By the end of the week, I will have 8-10 double-curved cherry leg...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1393: And Then There Were Five

09-01-2014 11:47 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I spent the day yesterday finishing up the remaining three poses of reindeer for my reindeer and sleigh vignette. Now all I need to do is assemble the two additional deer pattern packets and also the sleigh packet and I will be good to go. I had estimated that the sanding and assembly of the three deer would take half the day, and I planned to take the other half to kind of coast and do some things around the house, or some of my personal creating, but as usual I grossly underestimated myself...

Kids Workbench Build #5: Glue Ups and Legs!

08-31-2014 06:42 PM by Airframer | 4 comments »

The latest news in this saga are some final glueups on the top and getting the legs glued up as well. I started that yesterday while my apprentice was out of the house. Today we removed the clamps and cleaned and squared everything up. (Mauricios old No. 6 on it’s 3rd bench build ;-) ) Now it is really starting to resemble it’s big brother.. Then we marked one end for the tenon for the end cap and chopped it out.. (Tried for an action pic of...
