Jewelry Box #3: The Top

05-04-2008 06:05 AM by Woodshopfreak | 9 comments »

Well after about four months I finely get a chance to make use of my shop. I have begun to work on my jewelry box once again. I started in january and got distracted by the huge shop renovation. Well here it is. I believe that it turned out better than expected. This was my fist attempt at veneering and I think that I did very well. It turned out great. I fist took a peice of poplar and milled it flat and then used two peices of 1/4 ply to work as calls and put about ten diffrent types of cla...

A humble start

05-04-2008 05:05 AM by irishhandyman | 12 comments »

Well the day started with a request from my much better half for a book shelf for our bedroom. She said there was no hurry and just something to put the National Geographics in. Or as my son used to call them National Pornographics. I was thinking about what wood I had laying around and it come to mind I had some 8’’ and wider hickory and some White Oak. I set down and after about 15 mins. I had a plan of attack. Just a 5’ tall, 22’’ wide and 8’R...

A new shop in the making #1: The planning stages

05-01-2008 05:51 PM by Bob #2 | 21 comments »

I finally got up the strength to give sketchup a try this week. It has to be one of the most miserable programs I have ever tried to learn. There is too much information, there is too little information and almost every step involves going out somewhere over the internet to gather up the basics. Suffice it to say that the learning curve, at least for me, is daunting. Here’s what I have learned so far: I wanted a sketch to show me the approximate positioning of this shed relatve...

The Router Table Saga #4: Progress on the sub surface infrastructure

05-01-2008 05:40 AM by Mark Shymanski | 0 comments »

Well I’ve finished cutting the rabbets and halflaps for the framework for the table top and for the upper part of the legs. I’m learning a lot about how to increase the accuracy and precision of my joints as I become more familiar with my router. The jig is working really well and I’ve got a lot more confidence in my ability to build accurate jigs. This is a shot of the final leg joint after its cut. I had to adjust my joints after deciding not to use an 10 degree ...

Coffee table #1: On your mark, get sketchup, go...

05-01-2008 05:12 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

Well I guess Jenn has realized that I now have enough toy..ools and can start building some furniture so we’re starting small with a coffee table. We went to the local Windsor Plywood store (the only real lumber store here in Brandon they actually sell ‘exotic’ wood like maple and not just the dimensioned construction lumber like HD or Rona do) to scope out what wood they have available. I wanted Jenn to pick out the wood for the table and I was amazed at the reaction sh...

Scrap book cabinet #3: Took 4 hours But

05-01-2008 02:31 AM by jjohn | 6 comments »

Another day off (Wednesday’s) and down to the garage/shop I go. Thought I’d give a progress report. You know that it takes longer then I ever thought to cut, plain, measure, glue and pin 46 slates in place. Might not have taken quite as long if some of them weren’t cut on 45 deg. angles, and almost everything was cut by hand. But, I enjoyed the time spent. A little closer to the finish line. Next I will sand all the slates with 220 grit and start the drawers. Remember I s...

Work Bench "blogject"

05-01-2008 01:01 AM by Daren Nelson | 21 comments »

I have not really been woodworking all that long. I have actually owned a sawmill longer than I have been making any finished wood projects, long story. I have debated making a proper bench for some time. My old/first bench was a row of kitchen cabinets I took out on a remodel I did as a contractor with a solid plank on top. Everyone has different needs, I tried to design mine to fit the work I do. If I need to I can easily make modifications, as is I am calling it “done for now”....
