Tag Frid three legges stool #3: Tage Frid Three Legged Stool- Final Episode

09-08-2014 06:51 PM by cpine | 5 comments »

I complete the three legged stool. In this episode I glue up the seat and eventually the rest of the stool. I shape the legs, install the wedges in the mortise and tenons, sand and finish the stool. Thanks for the support and kind comments! This was a fun project and satisfying to have completed it. Best RegardsChris http://youtu.be/jhUJkumaA18

Walnut Slab Coffee table #2: The Router Sled

09-08-2014 01:06 AM by ilyac | 2 comments »

After a few feeble attempts at using a belt sander and a hand plane ( as if that was going to work) I decided to build a router sled. I don’t have much in the ways of a work surface that can accommodate a piece this size so I fashioned up a few sawhorses, a bed to hold the slab, and then the router sled itself. The whole thing took me an afternoon and is made of MDF. Because the slab varies in height so much I wanted a easy way to adjust the sled potion without having to move the wal...

Cabinet Doors for Refaced Kitchen Cabinets

09-02-2014 11:32 AM by ReubenD | 1 comment »

While being a long way from a furniture maker and only dreaming of having the amount of skill (and tools) needed for beautiful wood working of that caliber I did find the courage to take on a project that seemed very difficult but was in fact relatively easy but came out really nice (especially for a first attempt at real woodworking as opposed to simple carpentry). Putting in a new kitchen was simply not in the budget but something needed to be done with our 35 year old cabinets and kitch...

Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #2: Making the flute

08-08-2014 12:40 AM by icemanhank | 6 comments »

I have a couple of pics so far. I had to make a join in the timber so I dowelled it together at the block of the flute. I think the next step is to join the pieces together and start shaping the outside. I have heard it is a good idea to finish the inside of the SAC with a waterproof finish to stop any condensation getting in there and ruining the timber but am unsure if I should do this or not.

Thrift Store Hauls #2: Scored an old Stanley Electric router for $5

08-05-2014 03:07 AM by scruboak51 | 0 comments »

I had a nice score at the local thrift shops, picked up a Stanley Router for $5, The lettering is pretty beat up looks like a model 5494M. I found an old Stanley catalog from 1950, and page 15 outlines their 5A model. What’s interesting is it came in with the choice of 115, 125, 150, 200, 230, 250 volts It’s not working, the tag said it works but needed re-wiring (it’s exposed in a couple spots). I plugged it in, nothing, then gave the cord a jiggle and promptly b...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #10: The hidden multiple spline miter joint!

08-05-2014 12:49 AM by CharlesA | 4 comments »

I had to re-make the spline jig because I made it out of 1/4” ply and my bushing is just shy of 1/2” tall. So it just took a few minutes to make one out of 1/2” ply. I measured and measured. Using a combination square set to 2”, I carefully marked the location of the jig. After doing one side of the joint, I then flipped the jig, used the square to precisely set it in place, and then cut the mortises on the other side of the joint wit the router. Then came sq...
