The Craftsman's Path #30: Looking ahead - How about lutherie?

03-09-2008 04:00 AM by Mark Mazzo | 9 comments »

Things are winding down on the Queen Anne Side Table project (more tom come on that in a future post) so, I’ve been thinking ahead to what is next. I have lots of furniture projects queued up but, I won’t start those until the table is finished and out. I’m always up for a challenge so, I’ve come up with something interesting…take a look at my latest post and let me know what you think.

Printer Table #1 (Basic Construction)

03-09-2008 02:50 AM by teenagewoodworker | 8 comments »

Hey Everybody In this episode of the Teenage Woodworker I go over some basic cabinet construction in the first part of a three part series where i make a printer table. There are a lot of technical things that i go over but try to stay with me for the whole episode. As always since i am only using a digital camera to film the sound is a little bad. so try to bear with me it helps to turn up the sound and sit a little bit away from the computer. this improves the sound a little bit. ...

17th Century Jacobean Oak paneled room #5: Farther down the wall

03-08-2008 03:19 PM by woodwkr | 5 comments »

Below the coffered panels are the skirt panels. These were in better shape than the coffered panels and had a “rope” mould along the top edge. The rope mould was mostly new construction, ( poorly done ) and was replaced with new mould that I ran and distressed. It started to look like this was at least the second installation of these panels because some of them were cobbled together and mis-matched. It became easy to find where they originally belonged, because their length match...

How I first used my bandsaw... or The Ghost Hunting Grizz Whiz

03-08-2008 11:34 AM by BarryW | 5 comments »

You’ll be happy to know I used my 17 inch Grizzly Extreme Bandsaw for the first time yesterday…just to saw some sections of 2×6 into squares for plates upon which to mount casters. Nothing fancy. It was electrified in October and I hadn’t used it yet. Now I have. I know, nice saw and he doesn’t use it? Well, things happen slowly here. I read once where lots of woodworkers use their bandsaws almost all the time. I can see why. Small kerf, smooth cuts. I ...

Back at it... or How my back gives me permission to live...

03-07-2008 07:50 PM by BarryW | 4 comments »

Setting up my shop over the last several years has been a challenge. I’m back at it finally. I hurt my back last September and now I’m able to get into the shop without any pain. There may have been some other things going on as well. They seem to have cleared themselves up as well. So in the last several days I’ve been cleaning up messes that gathered here and there. An unused “end table/electronics stand” from when my mother had an 11 foot satellite dish ...

17th Century Jacobean Oak paneled room #4: What to keep and what to replace.

03-07-2008 03:59 AM by woodwkr | 4 comments »

First, let me say that this project was not an historical renovation. I tried to approach it that way as much as I could, but we did not have an unlimited budget and the client wanted the job done as soon as possible. Ok. I will start at the top and work my way down.Below is one of the few pieces of the original crown that survived. I believe that the original ceiling must have leaked, or been damp, because the crown and coffered panels needed allot of work. We did not have the time t...

Pencil Post bed #3: Pencil post bed part-3

03-06-2008 06:01 PM by mikega | 6 comments »

This is the third part of my series on making a Pencil Post bed that I am doing from the DVD that I got from Charles Neil at: I am now in the the not so exciting part of this project which is the sanding, sanding and sanding. There really is not much to say about the sanding but I would like to share something that I learned from Charles on my first trip to his shop in New Market VA that has really helped to improve the sanding on my projects. He showed me how t...

17th Century Jacobean Oak paneled room #3: More layout

03-06-2008 03:28 PM by woodwkr | 5 comments »

We did not have enough space to layout the entire room on the floor, so once I got a sense of how things went together, I measured everything, assigned a number to each one of the parts and plotted all the pieces on the computer. Much easier to drag around and piece the puzzle together. (also much less likely to break some very old and brittle wood) 17th century meets 21st century. :) Some of the notes appear below. -- Then a rough draft layout by our designer. (click to enlarge) ...

New Woodshop Construction #6: Hacking the Delta 50-875 Air Cleaner

03-06-2008 02:08 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 14 comments »

(This post is based on a forum thread.) After completing my dust collection system installation, I turned to my air cleaner, the Delta 50-875. I had decided to install it just above my table saw—about 2/3rd’s of the way along the wall, where the intake would be in line with the front door and the outfeed inline with the ceiling mounted vent fan. After reading “Woodshop Dust Control” this seemed like the ideal placement and this location had the added be...
