Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #1: Preparing the Wood

11-25-2011 08:11 PM by ~Julie~ | 5 comments »

This series of posts will show how I made four condiment totes for a local restaurant. I’m going to show most steps from rough wood to finished product. Most of you will find this basic, but hopefully I can help some beginners see how things are put together. The restaurant wanted holders for ketchup, mustard, relish and vinegar that the waitresses or waiters could take to the table with them. (In Canada, some of us like white vinegar on our fries. On my trips to the U. S., I hav...

Outfitting my small shop #1: The big tools

02-14-2011 05:00 PM by Tromni | 2 comments »

With the birth of my first child last year, I had an overwhelming urge to start building things that last. I picked up a ton of shop experience in college where I was the “master” student carpenter for the theater department. “Master” in this case meaning I was the least likely to hurt myself using any of the tools. But building for a theater means lots of butt joints and staples/screws instead of actual joinery, and it meant I touched something other than plywood a...

Gamble Entry table #3: It's comming along...

06-19-2008 03:35 AM by abie | 8 comments »

I’ve been busy making the parts fit sanding and then staining with Red Mahagony….Lyptus turned out darker than I imagined but it is cool.. The bread boards were also Lyptus but a darker hue.. so the contrast was fine.The Box joints were cut using an Incra jig as did David M… and I cut another set with traditional hand saw as my instructor wanted.. I can’t tell the difference. Splines on the breadBoards were tricky as the dado blade does not account for warpage and mi...

Building Jewelry Boxes with EZInlays #2: First Cuts for RoseBud

04-30-2013 05:30 AM by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

Started to build the RoseBud inlay that will go on the lid of the Bubinga and Purple Heart jewelry box. For this inlay I am using maple, yellow heart, rosewood, and kauri. Tomorrow I am going to do some sand shading to give the inlay a 3D effect. Should be pretty cool… P.S. The only down side to sand shading is the wood can sometimes stink and yellow heart is one of the worst!!! It is almost as bad as zebra wood… not quite but almost!!! Now that I’m finished with...

Wine Rack Expedition #7: The end in sight... yet...

04-02-2009 07:16 AM by Demowen | 4 comments »

Well Folks, I did what I could today. It was a long day of work and hospital visits so shop time was certainly limited to a few hours late into the night. I left a bit of a glue mess on my back assembly last night so I paid the price for it today.Now, that picture was just to show the assembly without clamps, but this one should be better…and some more….I had a few pictures of my lady checking my sanding job but they all were too blurry. She walked around it and made sure I d...

Book rack

09-17-2013 06:59 PM by kaerlighedsbamsen | 10 comments »

(This is my first attempt on a blog entry. English is my 2. language so bear over with me on spelling errors, funny language and all that.) This is a blog describing how i made this projeckt For a long time i´ve had this idea of making a rack for my cook books in the kitchen. They are just collecting dust on the shelf and not really getting the attension they deserve. Now i do see a lot of people using “plate racks” (dont know the word in english and google translate sugg...

A Jig that worked well for me

02-12-2010 06:37 AM by danr | 11 comments »

Hello, OK, I figured out the picture thing. Most of the photos are cropped off on the right side (as the instructions said they would be). Next time I will take this into account when taking the pics…..... Just wanted to post a quick blog to show a new jig that I have built to cut spline slots for a Greene and Greene table top (i.e. the bread-board ends). I have seen a few ways to do this here on this site and other places (thanks to all LumberJocks for all of the great ideas I ha...
