Outdoor Furniture #6: Adirondack Assembly Line Continued

05-24-2012 04:46 AM by Retsof | 2 comments »

Today I spent the morning looking for enough wood to finish my Adirondack patio set. I went to two Lowes stores and pretty much cleaned them out of 1×3 Douglas Fir decking boards which is what I’m using for my seat slats and most of my back slats (I use one 1×4 for the middle back slat on the single chairs and 2 1×4s and 1 1×6 on the settee). The actual width of 2 3/8” is perfect and I just have to cut them to length. The problem is that there is never eno...

Projects #2: Reclaimed Redwood - Sofa Table

03-27-2011 02:23 AM by drsongs | 2 comments »

This was my Saturday project. Should’ve been pretty simple but it actually gave me some problems. For one thing it ended up being about an inch shorter than I had planned because trying to get it to sit flat turned out to be the biggest challenge. I know most of you have been there at one time or another. Ok.. just a little off here… oops… that was too much etc. etc… Here’s some pics. The legs and top pieces are cut and ready: I used a clamp to hold the le...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #3: Glueing up pairs of boards and then glueing up quads

02-17-2015 02:44 AM by ruddhess | 2 comments »

This is the first two boards glued together the night before this picture. I have taken the bolts out and everything looks solid. Time will tell. This first one was probably the worst for glue coverage as I was in a hurry – it has been too long since I glued boards together. I keep thinking that if I didn’t hurry, the glue would set up and I’d have to do everything over again. But I think it will still be OK. I used plenty of glue on both sides and the only part I’...

Hollow Juniper Stump End Table #3: First curved glue lamination

12-23-2011 05:02 AM by junipercanyon | 2 comments »

Well, my first attempt with the spray bottle and torch from the previous post was successful for one board, but took way too much time and I have a few other projects going at the same time. So I decided to soak all my pieces in the bathtub overnight. The next evening I clamped all the boards together on the form and let dry overnight. After drying, I took off all the clamps, added a couple new holes to the form that I learned would have been nice to have on the dry fit. I rolled glue on e...

Recycling Cabinet

11-08-2010 05:47 AM by Dave S | 2 comments »

Ok, so first post—— I’ve just finished building what could (charitably) be called my third project. Have yet to finish it. The impetus for this is a need for somewhere to keep recycling (bottles, cans, etc) in our new house. We have entirely renovated our kitchen recently, so this is one of the final pieces of that project. It’s pine from local HD. Held together with pocket holes—no fancy joinery here. Cutting was all done on my (new!) table saw, which ...

"Teller of Life’ as I Now Live Wood" --by RusticWoodArt #8: "Stories of Wood That Yearn"

12-14-2007 02:25 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Stories of Wood That Yearn ”....tis in the sliding of the barn door’s opening, that the eye of man meets those other’s, who have heard the news, that often what is sold as wood, be-comes the more of what is worked as art....” Often now the mornings are getting colder and so I find myself coming out here earlier to start the fire in the belly of my beast, as I prepare the tools that the ‘old timer’ will be using today. Tools come in many forms shapes a...
