Hand Planes #6: Using the Cove Plane

755 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 6 comments »

I have a lot of projects that my wife (HI Nicole!) wants me to do involving wood. Well it never seems like they get done and I feel bad because I want her to be happy. She asked me to make her a little shelf to go over the back of the couch to place picture frames on or what ever else ends up going there. I figured this would be a great chance to practice some of my hand tool skills and see how it goes. I measured out the back of the couch to see what the length should be which was 78″. It is...

Red Oak Lumber #3: Quartersawing a BIG red oak log

1054 days ago by HalDougherty | 4 comments »

Here’s a photo and a description of how I sawed a huge red oak log to get the most quartersawn lumber from it with the least waste. My saw has a 34” capacity at the widest point, but the bolts holding the adjustable guide for the blade reduce that some and I had to use my chainsaw a couple of times to get enough clearance for the widest part of the log. The throat opens to make a 29.5” cut at the widest point. (If you take off part of the lube system) The red lines show t...

Constructing a Modern Sofa Table - The Video

1620 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 21 comments »

Share the Love This modern sofa table was built for donation to a charity fundraising auction. This slideshow was played to generate more interest in the table by highlighting the construction process. Generating more interest generates more money for the charity. The auction was a bit disappointing overall, but my table brought in the more money than anything else. Funds raised at the auction help support programs for people with developmental disabilities. The winning bidder ask...

Entry Closet Project #8: The End is Here!

2387 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 31 comments »

Finished! Well it’s been a long journey and it did not end without one extra push. I finished installing the copper handles Monday by 11:30. There was a couple of scratches but I was certain I could buff them out. This is a skill that goes with the territory. I worked on the finish for the next six hours and I could not get the finish to blend. How to Remove a Scratch- After exhausting all other options this is what I resorted to today: Yes you are seeing it correctly...

Entry Closet Project #7: One Step Closer!

2390 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 26 comments »

Another Milestone I am pretty excited to share with you guys today’s progress. I got all of the handle pieces finished! Next I have some touch up on the doors and the final install. I am sure I will have a full day of technical sweating. I had to brush the pieces again on the wire wheel to brighten the finish. I then hung them from the ceiling and wiped them down thoroughly with acetone. This strips any oil from the surface. I sprayed them with an acrylic resin lacquer by Sh...

Entry Closet Project #6: The End is Near!

2392 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 26 comments »

Getting Closer… Well guys I can hardly stand it! I am getting so close to done on this project and yet there is so much to do. I just want to go home and be with my wife and my dogs so bad. This job has been a nail biter every step of the way. The more I get done, the more work I have at risk if I should screw up. A mistake could cost the equivalent of a good used car – NO KIDDING. If you want to do high-end work, the risk is high too. That is one factor most don’t...

Entry Closet Project #5: OH, Baby It's Hot!

2398 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 34 comments »

Exciting Progress.. I am making some great progress on my closet project. I currently have the copper rods in a machine shop where the parts are being fabricated. The clients and I had talked about changing the lights to better illuminate the fine work that I have produced. While the metal work is being done I decided to go ahead and install the new lights. WOW! Man-OH-Man! Does it ever look fantastic! Here is the closet with the old lights: Here is the closet with the n...

Entry Closet Project #2: Entry Closet Progress

2411 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 9 comments »

Making Progress- I’m moving forward on my project but not fast enough. I am anxious to get home to my wife in Billings and she is anxious to have me home too. For now I am stuck in Ohio for at least another week as far as I can see. Small Door Up- I installed the small door on Friday and the clients are just nuts over the finish. I am pretty happy with it myself. Part of the veneer is done in straight red dye and the other part is done with layers of red and black. The red i...

Christmas Projects #1: Started my Christmas projects.

2435 days ago by Sgt_Lobo | 1 comment »

Well, as I said in last night’s blog, today I started 3 projects that I need to finish in time to send off before Christmas. So I guess my insomnia paid off though because I was able to draw up my plans, measure and mark all my wood last night which made cutting today go allot quicker. So, today between baking pies and pumpkin bread, I managed to cut all my pieces to length, rip them to width, and miter the ends. Not bad for a days work. Heres some pics/teasers… 1st pic...
