Improved Workbench #3: Top, Legs, Stretchers, and a little Assembly.

05-10-2011 05:28 PM by Brian024 | 4 comments »

In this part, I glue up the main portion of the top, that sucker is heavy. I also mill the parts for the legs and stretchers, lay them out and cut the core mortise and tenon joinery.

Router Box Joints using a Template Bearing Guide

05-09-2011 11:05 PM by Dave Owen | 6 comments »

The first time I ever saw a box joint jig guided by a template bearing was six or seven years ago when a friend showed one as a club demo. His jig was a simple plywood sled with a fence, a wooden bar for spacing the fingers, and a slot through the base that fit a template bearing guide. If I remember correctly, his made joints with 3/8” fingers. Shortly after his demo, I made the smaller jig shown below for 1/8” ‘fingers on small drawers. Here’s a photo of a jewelry ...

$40 Trestle Table #1: Rachael Ray type planning

05-05-2011 08:30 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

If you ever want to get a group of women to take notice then roll their eyes and leave. As they are talking about cooking interrupt and say “Well, according to Rachael Ray….”. Or don’t try it. They usually don’t like it. So, what does this have to do with a trestle table? Rachael does her “eat on $40 dollars a day” program. Or at least she used to. My niece is moving into a new apartment and mentioned that she would like a new kitchen table. She&#...

Outdoor Morris Chair #12: This chair is big

05-04-2011 01:36 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 4 comments »

This chair really is big. Very wide. 24+inches wide in fact. .Here’s me sitting on it. Note, I’m a big guy and the chair is still big. I think two of my littlest kids could sit in one of these. Comfy big. In fact, the chair is so wide it makes me wonder. Standard cushions are 22” square. Does that mean I need to get bigger cushion materials?

Outdoor Morris Chair #1: Gathering the materials

04-30-2011 06:27 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 6 comments »

Making Mr Thiel’s Outdoor Morris Chair from his excellent book (pic from his BLOG here).. Thought I bought lumber for two chairs. Made double the cuts and got part of the way through before I realized that I had not doubled the materials. Trip to Lowes Depot this morning and a lot of fumbling through the junk boards got me enough to hopefully do all the cuts I need. I love Mr Thiel’s book but I’ve got one minor quibble. There’s no cut diagram in the book and ...

Redwood

04-24-2011 05:02 AM by Steve McCracken | 0 comments »

I have three 4×4’s that after much sanding and steel wool applications have been treated to a bath in teak oil. Color me suprised with the outcome. This outdoor project was worth the 2 year wait. I now will use my new plunge Craftsman router to make room for black tubing to add pizzazz to some climbing roses. I had no idea how the teak oil was going to “shine” my redwood. Wow. Color me impressed. Pictures will definitely follow.

Picture frame profiles

04-13-2011 05:53 AM by devann | 7 comments »

I was checking out some picture frames that spunwood has on the site and ask to see some profiles. My request was granted so now it’s my turn. I went out to the shop and took these pictures. Hope that this helps those of us that don’t have molding cutters see another way to do it. This one is weathered cedar and a piece of redwood cut with a cove bit on the routertable and a piece of longleaf pine with a rabbet cut making the inside of the frame. Here I used ipe with sedona ...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #2: Routing Template, Sanding

04-12-2011 08:07 AM by superstretch | 2 comments »

Tonight I was finally able to use the 1” flush trim bit I got at Lowes the other day and trim back the edge of the shelf top to the template. With the template removed: Finally, after getting the edges sanded and the rounded profile made more round (with my new Rikon 1” belt/5” disk sander), the top/edges/ends sanded with 400 grit, and a quick wet down (to raise grain and get some of the dust out of the walnut grain): Next up is making final cuts to the back...
