Works in Progress #4: Humidor Test Build - Day Three

85 days ago by Jerry | 0 comments »

Starting to look like something now. Still needs a little more sanding and a nice finish before parting the top from the bottom. I had intended to do a fully functional humidor for this test, but I went to Woodcrafters today and found out that Spanish Cedar has skyrocketed, so since this is a test, I will probably make the liner out of some inexpensive wood and just make this a box. The wood is hemlock, and is very cheap, but I chose it because I liked the nice tight straight grain. It ...

Land of Nod #3: Boring!

89 days ago by byerbyer | 0 comments »

Ok, where were we…Headboard joinery is wrapped up at this point and it’s time for the sideboards (as I’m calling them.) The sideboards attached with some connector bolts and cross-dowels/barrels a la a bed bolt setup. I didn’t want to rely on a 1/4” bolt alone to hold the weight of the mattress, frame, and the little one so a added a stubby tenon to the lower rail to carry the load with the bed bolts holding the joint tight. I used the same router jig for the ...

Sheraton Writing Desk - Making the Drawers

89 days ago by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

Making the three drawers for the Sheraton Writing Desk I am building. I cut half blind dovetails using a Leigh dovetail jig, and make a solid wood tapered bottom. I know videos on making drawers has been done to death, just thought I would share my process for doing it on this project. http://youtu.be/krYSPx63Mis

Woodworking For Therapy #8: Chemo Therapy Makes Sawdust Taste Metalic

90 days ago by Steve Kreins | 12 comments »

Chemo Therapy Makes Sawdust Taste Metallic, YUK! I don’t mind the food tasting funny because it isn’t going to stay down that long anyway. But I was enjoying the smell and taste of sawdust, I guess I need to wear a dust mask, but that seems to take some of the fun out of woodworking. ;) Seriously, the Nurse Practitioner asked, “Any side effects yet?” I said, “Yea, my sawdust tastes like metal filings.” She said, “I beg your pardon? Sawdust?” I c...

Land of Nod #2: Joinery

92 days ago by byerbyer | 4 comments »

Over the course of couple of weeks I slowly milled the pieces down to final dimensions and it was time to start with the joinery! The “headboard” ends, as I call them, will be mortise and tenoned with the spindles captured between an upper an lower rail. Because I’m a glutton for punishment I decided I’d do a double tenon to give the frame plenty of strength. Considering I hadn’t cut/chopped a mortise in over a decade it was going to be sink or swin… I cut ...

Tumbling block cutting board techniques, lessons learned and tips for cutting and assembly

93 days ago by jfk4032 | 8 comments »

After looking through some other blogs here on LJ and watching some Youtube videos I thought that the tumbling block cutting board was something that looked challenging, cool and something I wanted to try. I learned some good ideas from these other blogs and wanted to share some of my experiences having now made three of these, my setbacks and discoveries to better produce these tumbling block patterns. I purchased a Wixey digital angle gauge as it looked like you really needed to be accu...

Education and torment #2: Red Oak Sandpaper Storage cabinet

94 days ago by GeneR | 3 comments »

This cabinet is made from leftover red oak, Luan, birch plywood and plexiglass that I had in my shop. It is approximately 17”T x 7 1/2”W x 6” deep. I would have liked to make it a little taller to handle a couple more shelves and slightly deeper to have been able to recess the back panel. The Box I first sent the oak through the joiner to ensure I had 1 flat square edge. I then cut the board to the proper widths on my table saw then to final lengths on the Miter...

Helpful Jigs #2: Two Piece Jig to Make 1" Thick Bent Lamination

100 days ago by rhett | 3 comments »

Too cold to spray finish and waiting on blades, so here is a quick blog on a technique to make matching curves for bent laminations. NOTE: The desired final thickness of your lamination is equal to the diameter of the bottom bearing trim bit you use in this method. Blanks for the jig. 4 pieces of 3/4” ply to make a 3” deep jig. Cut and faired 1/4” template is used to get initial curve on a piece of 3/4” ply. Flush trimmed curve is used as bearing reference...

Sawstop Contractor Mobile Base for 36" T-Glide Rails

100 days ago by Sk1pp3r | 7 comments »

So here it is. I am basing this project on one several other talented individuals have done. They include, but are not limited to, Zzzzdoc, Tedth66, and Spencer. I only have the rough outline right now but plan on cutting wood this week. I have the mobile base on 4” swiveling castors. I matched the drawer base to the same height as the original base minus 4 inches for the casters. I made the base 28×68.5 and recessed the cabinet one inch all around so once the drawer fron...

Work Station #2: Sled and Router Table Insert

104 days ago by christenite | 1 comment »

I’ve continued tinkering with my table saw stand/workstation. Since I moved the fence system all the way to the right, the ruler was no longer accurate. I purchased a new one and got that zeroed in without a too much effort. I also started an apothecary style entertainment center for our house. I knew pretty quickly that I was going to need a sled for cutting my panels to length. So I made the one in the second picture first with some scrap oak I had laying around and a 1/2” piece...
