Building a Beetle Kill pine table with a chandelier base

10-11-2016 04:52 PM by BenhamDesign | 1 comment »

This post is an overview of the build. If you want more info please visit my personal blog post. Building a Table by Re-Purposing a Chandelier Watch it be built on YouTube I started out with the chandelier my wife hated. I used a cut off wheel to remove anything that wasn’t going to be part of the base. I aligned the legs using a scrap piece of plywood clamped in the vise Used Tie wire to hide the holes where the electrical wire came through. Painted wire a fra...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #14: Breadboard Ends

10-08-2016 03:09 AM by EarlS | 3 comments »

Before I jumped into making the breadboard ends I decided to do some reading and get a little more explanation on wood movement and what role breadboard ends play. Excerpts from Popular WoodWorking magazine website: “Boards expand and contract at a greater rate across their width than they do along the length. How much they expand and contract is more a matter of species and final resting place than anything else. Also, wood tends to expand and contract more actively toward the bark ...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #13: The Big Top

09-30-2016 01:21 AM by EarlS | 1 comment »

I didn’t really spent much time thinking about how the desk top would be built. I planed and jointed the walnut along with the maple and cherry. I proceeded to glue up the panels using a biscuit jointer. With a top this large (39×72) I used 4 – 10” wide boards and glued them in pairs then glued the pairs together. I also clamped the ends and middle to keep the board from cupping from the clamping pressure. From there I glued up the final 4 board panel. After...

Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #9: Still plodding along

09-19-2016 03:41 PM by jonlruss | 0 comments »

Once again with weather and other commitments I haven’t made a lot of progress. Also the fact that I’ve been devoting the time I have worked on this on the router end has slowed me down. Over the last few weeks I got the opening for the router plate and the miter track cut out, got the router, plate, and track mounted. It didn’t take too long to get that done. The rest though has been chewing up much more time than I anticipated. Other than a large bottom drawer to hold rout...

Shaker Candlestands #2: Making the prototype

09-14-2016 02:30 AM by Phil | 0 comments »

The next step in make my Shaker candlestands was to figure out how to hold the spindles/posts to cut the dovetail mortises for the legs. After turning it over in my head for a couple of weeks, watching some videos on youTube (include 3 different New Yankee Workshop episodes where Norm makes pedestal tables), and trying a few options, I finally decided to make a fixture to hold & index the post at 120° and use a router to cut the mortises [1]. Here’s the fixture: The post...

Hello Alll, Some of you may be familiar with Alain Vaillancourt, who has a YouTube channel called The Woodpecker. He is a Quebecois woodworker who has gotten popular on this continent and in France with his bilingual woodworking videos. I visited his shop last fall, and last winter he and his wife Renee came to visit me in western NY. We began a project that I later finished, but i got video of the tine Alain spent helping me. I invite you to watch us work!

Shaker Candlestands #1: Testing the techniques

08-28-2016 01:21 AM by Phil | 0 comments »

After finishing my bookcases, I’ve started working on a pair of Shaker Candlestands. I turned the spindles last time I was at my in-law’s house: The tops will be from several panels I glued up years ago to use as shelves for a pair of end tables, then decided they were too nice to hide away. I’ll post pics of those later. This is a different kind of project than I’ve attempted before, and I want to get it right the first time. So, I’m going to validate t...
