Composer's Desk #1: Composer's Desk - blogging the project

03-07-2018 09:36 PM by nickbatz | 0 comments »

I was having these made by a shop out of solid oak or maple for over a decade, and all along I wanted to develop an affordable version. Then – spurred on by someone actually offering money :) – I figured it out: make it myself, and use nice oak plywood and high-quality Douglass fir dimensional lumber instead of solid oak that brings the materials cost up to about as much as this whole thing sold for! Based on posting pics on Facebook, I now I have two more “commissions...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #15: Bookcase, face frame and top

03-19-2018 02:01 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Trying to get caught up here…Face frame: Stanley 45 and a #22 bead cutter.. Two cuts to make the outside corner, a single for the inside edges…The top rail only got one bead. Fancy cuts, to produce a tenon, once I got sizes figured out.. Then made a few cuts into the stiles… And made a few mortises.. Top one was easy. the one for the bottom rail? I had to get things fine tuned, for the beads to line up just right Spread some glue, add some clamps.. ...

Bath Stool #2: Bath Stool

Well here is how I go around my projects. I enjoy this faze of the project. First a general idea of what I would like the project to look like. Then I look for inspiration from the web, general dimentions and so on. I found this, traditional japanese bath stool. This is FROM a google search.

Shop Notes #10: Almost Up to Speed?

03-01-2018 05:36 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

It’s been cold in my shop this week—temperatures hovering around the high 40’s or low 50’s. Those who live in cold climates will laugh, but with cold like this so rare, I don’t have any provision for heat. Even though the temps really aren’t that low, it’s not long before I’ve got numb hands (and a short temper). Despite the weather, I spent a lot of time at work in the shop, though most of it was spent on actually finishing a lot of personal...

Crib #2: Building Curves

01-23-2018 11:49 PM by RenB | 1 comment »

Looking at my Sketchup model the thing I think would be the biggest problem is the arches on the back board. There are 2 curved boards, one curved molding and one Laminated board. I figure this is the best place to get started. The first thing I did was find the radius of the arch that I wanted to create. To do this I found an online calculator and put in the width and height of the arch segment I had. I came up with a 68.25” radius. Next I got some MDF to use as a template. ...

Shop Notes #20: Odd Custom Projects

05-03-2018 03:25 PM by Steve | 2 comments »

I generally see a trickle of custom requests in my shop, so it’s unusual to have two under way at the same time. The first was a soap cutting device for a friend who makes and sells boutique soap. Essentially, it’s cutting wires strung over a frame, then hinged so the entire device can be pulled down through a large cake of soap. Most of the comparables I saw on Etsy were bolted together plywood contraptions. I used some scrap maple for the frame with lap joints and dowels at t...

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...

Ok, been quite busy lately, Holidays, and such. Spent a bit of cash to get about 32bf of Ash, from a friend of mine..

Quarter sawn Ash.. Used this old saw, to cut a few blanks to length.. Jointed the edges, and checked for any gaps.. Got one side into the clamps̷...

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...
