Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #8: Edge profile and final sanding, onto finish work

11-26-2017 03:19 PM by Reinan | 3 comments »

As this table is a gift for a young couple, I thought a rounded edge on the most exposed corners would be prudent; possible small ones in the future and all. So I used a 1/8 round over bit in my venerable PC 100 which did the job well but ackwardly at times. I wish I had a smaller unit for this kind of work and have been considering the purchase of a lighter one handed type router. After completing the machine work, I sanded everything to 400 grit, wet sanding the table top. I put one thi...

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #10: CAD Templates and Pattern Sanding Test

11-25-2017 03:59 AM by TungOil | 11 comments »

With the new bandsaw tuned up and cutting nicely I got to work designing the templates needed to make the chairs. I worked through the steps to make each part, designing pattern routing/sanding templates to aid each step. Each part has several templates to be used to route the shape, mortises, etc. I ended up with 46 templates overall, a lot more than I expected. I sent the files off to the local CNC shop for quoting. While waiting for my templates I decided to test out my patte...

Pattern challenge (23rd of November - 23rd of December)

11-24-2017 01:31 PM by FancyChip | 4 comments »

The only one way for me now to make new album, is to challenge myself. As I know, there are many drawing challenges, when people draw one picture a day (with ink pen or something else), and I decided to draw and carve one pattern a day (6cm x 6cm) during the next 30 days (the challenge started on 23rd of November). And then, when it’s all done, I will make an album in PDF with all the created patterns. I have never done anything like this before, so it will be a real challenge for me.. ...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #5: Lower Cabinet Design - Tool Packing

11-23-2017 02:59 AM by Bluenote38 | 5 comments »

SktechUp – what a great tool! I can change things much easier, explore design options, and visualize architectures far easier. After a couple false starts a bit of learning on how SketchUp works compared to its big brothers the lower cabinet literally came together. The lower cabinet is expressly to house most of my power tools – the ones I reach for regularly. The multi-tool and biscuit joiner will stay in their respective cases because they just don’t get used much. T...

Underway again...finally #12: OMG-I cut the free cabinets!

11-21-2017 01:03 AM by JohnTM | 4 comments »

Spent the day semi-waiting for a roofer. While I waited, I fiddled slowly with fitting the tablesaw fence rail guide and the cabinets. The fence extends further to the right than to the left. The cabinets are deeper than the tablesaw, so openings in both cabinets had to be made in order for the table saw fence rail guides to extend fully in both directions. This (obviously) only needs to be done for the rear rail guides as I am mounting the cabinets so the tablesaw’s front rail guide pa...

Underway again...finally #11: Pro Football day - some progress in wood and football

11-20-2017 12:51 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Let’s get the “big deal” out of the way first. After a shaky first 3 quarters, we pulled it out in the last couple of minutes. My team now has 8 wins in a row! Geaux Saints! Whew. With that taken care of, I did a bit of work both before and after the game. Before the game, I worked on strengthening the table saw stand and raising its height to what it should have been yesterday. Nothing major skill-wise. Just the usual “do and re-do” process for me as I futz m...

Mission-style mahogany desk #1: A view of the legs and progress on the desktop

11-17-2017 07:56 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

I talked about this project in my recent blog, and thought I’d give a shot at actually trying to blog a build; something that I’m not strong at because I don’t always think to take pictures of things while I’m doing the work, and the pictures REALLY help visualize whatever’s gong on in the shop. As always, comments, suggestions, or witty reparte’ are always welcome. Below is a snapshot of my ongoing sketchup-work-in-progress plans for the mission-style d...
