Bath Stool #8: Rounding and learning

05-07-2018 04:35 PM by Diego Cassels | 4 comments »

Tusk through tenon!! The name is common but its the first for me. I scratch a line to have a reference to drill, then squared it with a chisel. The key was made with the same wood, “quebracho colorado”. Hard to fit but the en result looked good to me! Then I ronded the seat corners with a router and lots of sanding. LOTS!!! I had to do a dry test, the photos don`t do it justice! Here you have a closeup of the tusked tenon. Well a touch there and another over t...

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #4: Main panel sanding and and machining tongues

01-04-2018 02:20 PM by Reinan | 1 comment »

Tight week for time, but managed to get some work shop time yesterday. Level sanded the maple main panel using a 4 1/2×26 belt sander for the heavy removal then finished up with a ROS to clean up and smooth things. I also machined the tongues for the breadboard ends using a pattern following bit and the corresponding mahogany blank as the pattern. I get some depth variations across the tongue, from either my ability to hold the router With the same pressure, or the pattern piece flexi...

A Stepback Cupboard build #10: Shelves, and a top shelf

01-23-2018 05:40 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Won’t be quite as long winded, this time around…..Had three blanks for shelves…..they needed to fit into the sliding dovetails I milled into the sides. Had the router set up.. With a fence. Needed a way to support it, while making a cut…..decided to gang all three blanks up.. And do a few test runs.. They were a bit ragged, but a small file soon cleaned them up.. Had a few errands to run…came back and made a few more cuts..Got all six pins done,...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #14: Bookcase started

03-15-2018 10:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

OK, Those two longer sides, needed a rebate added to them. Once I figured out which was the “inside” “top”, Back and bottom and have both match….Clamped one side into the vise on the bench.. Checked the Wards 78 to see how it was set up.. Might be about right? full length shaving. Got both rebates done.. This will “house” the plywood back panel… Time to lay out for a few sliding dovetails… Used a book to set the sp...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #3: side panels worked on

02-25-2018 03:28 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Got both panels done, for now….one of the rare days I could spend an afternoon IN the shop.. Once I figured which face goes to which face, I stacked the two panels together, clamped them up. Then used the saw /router guide to square both ends. Then, since the panels were still clamped up, I jointed the edges… Had to use the jack plane on a couple knotty spots, then the big guy could finish up.. Less time hauling the 10 pounder around, that way. Left the panels cl...

Ripped a few 1×1s from the leftovers…needed to build out the drawer runners, for the drawer to slide on….also needed guides to keep the drawer centered in the opening… A bead of glue and a screw. Both are attached to the webf...

Bath Stool #7: Machine versus Hand tools...

05-02-2018 02:26 PM by Diego Cassels | 4 comments »

Well I´m not a only hand tool, nor a machine carpenter either. This project requiered machines because of the hard wood and the lack of the correct hand tools needed to do the job.I continued with the legs making the angled tenon, it wasn’t easy to make but I was happy with the job. Used a DIY router table, added a small wood on the fence side just to create the right 12° angle that a I needed. It didn´t need to be exact 12° but it needed to be consistent, it DID 12,7° and 12,9° in t...

Big cabinet for the new home #3: Design change, big dado setup, rabbets and an oops.

05-13-2018 01:55 AM by Lalen | 0 comments »

Design change. More difficult but I think this one looks much better. Primarily changed up the door design to go inset with an upper and lower cabinet and with more glass panes. Went from 6 to 12 doors. We still haven’t decided on the detail for drawer fronts. Crown molding will be more ornate. Compare to the original. I was really concerned about getting the interior dados lined up for the sides and back. I knew it wouldn’t go together well if they weren...

Shop Notes #19: Run-Up to Another Show

04-26-2018 04:19 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

It was a hectic push to get ready for my last show, which was a fun time (if not terribly lucrative). This time, I set more reasonable goals, and even after a flurry of sales around tax day (which was unusual), I have plenty of wares on the shelves or easy to finish before May 5th. This wine rack is a new product. I finally decided on a thinned coat of Danish oil for the finish, followed by multiple thin coats of satin polyurethane, which should be able to take a little abuse. I...

Gift Projects #2: Making Cutting Boards Out Of a Single Peice of Solid Wood

05-17-2018 06:05 PM by ScottBelleri | 0 comments »

I made these paddle-style cutting boards out of solid 6/4” maple. This is thick enough that they shouldn’t warp, and they can be sanded down a number of times. It is called a paddle-style cutting board because its handle makes it look a bit like a paddle. The handle makes it easy to carry and hang, and also gives it a unique character. Sugar maple is an ideal wood for cutting boards because it is hard, but not so hard that it will dull your knives. Really, the only import...
