Life as an Amateur Woodworker #15: Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year to One and All!

12-22-2013 12:50 PM by PhilBello | 1 comment »

I decided to make some last minute stocking fillers for family and friends, this year it was Cheese Boards, I bought some hardwood sheets from HomeCenter, unfortunately there was no description as to what wood was used to make up these sheets, but it had a nice grain.To make the process easier, I decided to make a another Spindle Sander which could be used on the Pillar Drill, or as is described in ‘The Family Handyman’, a drum sander. The idea being this is clamped on the ...

New, old tools and $40 I didn't know I had

08-18-2012 09:25 PM by Chris McDowell | 6 comments »

First, the tools… A new friend of mine, who is also a fellow Lumberjock, sent me a package of some things to add to my shop and help me get started in woodworking. This was done completely out of the kindness of his own heart and he refused any sort of payment whatsoever. I will be forever grateful and this will always be a part of my woodworking story. Here’s a couple of items: I can’t believe the router! This thing has got some get up and go. I’ve nev...

Cherry Nightstand #4: Base

04-02-2014 09:31 PM by Todd | 2 comments »

Next I decided to make the base. Since I wanted the skirt to match the skirt on our Captain’s Chest I copied the pattern onto paper then created a 1/4” ply pattern by gluing the paper to the ply, rough cutting with the bandsaw, then carefully sanding the edges using my disc sander and oscillating sander. I screwed the ply pattern to what would be the back of the front skirt piece and rough cut with my bandsaw. I then used a pattern bit on my router table to finish off the cur...

Catamaran Cupboard Door Remake... #7: Final straight...

02-17-2011 11:53 PM by degoose | 17 comments »

Coming down the home straight with these doors. Here is a quick shot of the set up for the slot cutting on the old router table.. Finished the rebates on the panels… back 4 mm and the front 7 mm Using the Incra Fence and the Woodpecker Unilift made it easy to switch from one height to another … Moved the blade on the TS to 45 degrees and positioned the fence for the bevel cuts on the front of the panels.. A Wixey Digital Ange Guide is very useful here.. A...

Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #3: Finishing the inside

12-01-2011 05:31 AM by ~Julie~ | 0 comments »

Now that the sides, ends and bottom are cut I stain them, on the insides only, before putting the box of the tote together. It’s much easier to stain before glueing because trying to reach your hand inside a box and stain it is very difficult. With pine, I use flecto Varathane’s Gel Stain. It does not require any undercoating and always give me a streak-proof finish. Not all stains work well on pine but I have had great success with this. I rub it on with a piece of old t-s...

General shop progress #2: The next goodies for the shop

08-05-2011 02:37 AM by dadefreese | 0 comments »

Recently, I broke down and bought the Bosch enclosed router table, the excellent Incra v120 miter gauge and the Incra Miter Express. In addition to improving my general accuracy on the router table and table saw, my goal will be to craft my own custom spaced and sized box joints and dovetail joints. So far, I can say that all three have done more than I had been able to do with my prior gear. Prior to the Bosch table, I built a small router table insert for my tablesaw (a Delta TS350) th...

Mission Inspired Couch Table #1: Starting my first 'big' project...

01-22-2008 07:09 PM by itsme_timd | 6 comments »

I love Mission style furniture and am working on my first piece, a couch table that will be used as an aquarium stand. I’m trying to take my time with this one, it gets worked on a little at a time in between some of my smaller projects. The table is red oak from HD. I don’t have a planer yet so I needed to buy lumber that was close to size and fairly finished. I want to try somethung in quarter sawn white oak next. I just finished one side of the table and wanted to post...
