Butterfly Dining Table #5: Split Top Sliding Assembly

11-24-2015 11:27 PM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

After the base assembly is complete, I start working on the sliding mechanism that will carry the split top. I use maple for some of the parts, and walnut for the slides that will be attached to the table top when I complete it. Although not very complex, it is a design that demands precision to work correctly. You Tube Link – As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To get updates of this build as I go along, please follow me on Inst...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #61: Bedside Table Build

11-24-2015 10:15 PM by PhilBello | 1 comment »

Having cut all the timber it was time to do something with it! I assembled the tops, and sides, minus the trim, using pocket hole screws and glue, sanded them with 80 grit, until they are all level, next I attached the trim, before continuing the sanding. I also sanded the side trim and the legs. Then it was time to start the build, things went together, but not as smoothly as I would have liked. There were a lot of pocket holes to be drilled, all on the inside, so none of th...

Lego Table #7: Good progress

11-22-2015 07:58 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

This post contains a lot of images—I’ve posted some here, but for the rest, please visit my woodworking blog) Very productive nap time session today! First order of business was to take advantage of the 65 degree weather and paint the play surface for the top. We chose a primary blue to cover the MDF. The kids have plenty of the green Lego baseplate‚Äôs, so blue should compliment what they already have. The MDF took the paint in three thin coats that ate the entire can. Th...

Slow Days at the Shop. #5: Making a guide for my Makita D handled routers

11-20-2015 10:20 AM by fatman51 | 2 comments »

I like these routers. The D handle allows for controlled single handed operation of the tool while holding the workpiece with the other. I have 3 of these routers and none of them came with a guide. I wanted a guide for one of them the other day and found myself wishing that I had ordered one, as I was not able to put off the project until I could get one. I decided to order 2 and make 1 so that I could use the router I wanted to use on the project at hand. A radial arm saw will do...

Butterfly Dining Table #4: Base Details and Base Assembly

11-16-2015 12:16 AM by Guy Dunlap | 3 comments »

In this video, I show how I plan to use sliding dovetails for the mid span dividers, which also will house the sliding parts for the top, and then cut the sliding dovetails and make the dividers. Then I cut the slots in the end rails for the slides and glue up the end assemblies, which I might add was a grueling experience I hope I never put myself through again! I cut out the joinery for the lower rail that will connect the two curved rails and tie the whole thing together. It’s sta...

Shop stuff #12: Fitting the book matched maple panel bottom

11-12-2015 09:18 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I am slowly catching up with editing and posting video. The bit that broke in the previous video makes its first cut and I get to use the Record 078 plane for the first time. It will take some time to get better at it, but practice, practice, practice is the way to go. I have at least a couple more videos to go on this one. I hope you enjoy it.

Shop stuff #11: 2 videos today

11-11-2015 12:51 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

The weather has been rather nice lately. So nice that I have been spending more time in the shop. Along with being out in the air with Sally and Lil’ Lee. I have had the camera in the shop too. Which of course means I have lots of video clips saved, and nothing published for a while. Well, it rained today, so I took some time to do some editing and catching up. We had to go to town so Lil ‘Lee could get her grooming done, but other than that, I have been sitting in front of ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #59: Now for a Good Night's Sleep...I hope!

11-09-2015 01:10 AM by PhilBello | 5 comments »

It has taken two and a half weeks, but I am finally there, and the new bed is completed, since I quoted SWMBO three weeks, I am happy that I came in, in time! The original idea was to varnish the bed so that it was a natural pine colour, but… If that’s natural pine, my names Santa Claus, it reminded me of cheap pine kitchen furniture in my youth…orange! So the search went on, and we decided on an Oak matt varnish. Another change was the top mattress support,...
