Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #46: Sewing Thread Spools & Bobbins Rack: Fully Populated

07-13-2015 12:44 AM by Paul Bucalo | 10 comments »

I posted the other day a completed project I made for the wife’s birthday. She has now populated the rack, so here is what it was designed to look like in use: Note that on some of the spools there is a bobbin containing the same thread. This was the key ingredient: she wanted to keep the bobbins with the spools providing the thread and color. I wasn’t surprised to see that she doubled up on bobbins for some of them. I asked her if she would want to do this before starting ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1571: Catching Up

06-12-2015 11:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I suppose that I will never be accused of 'rushing through' things.Even when I seem to get something done quickly, many times I wind up going back and making changes in order to improve on it. I think this can be a good thing, but sometimes I wonder if it is counter productive or not.It is something that I can't really help. Often times, I will make something that is really good, and then either while I am writing the  pattern for it or making additional pieces, I realize tha...

Kitchen table Build #1: Kitchen Table build

06-08-2015 02:07 PM by Woodpecker23 | 0 comments »

My last build was a rustic style X-frame coffee table. After that was finished for the customer I had posted it on my facebook and was commissioned from that post to build a newly married couple to build just a blown up version into a kitchen table and chairs that is bar height. Here is a screen shot of my sketchup plan that I came up with. So, for me I am extremely excited for this build as I have been telling my wife for months that I badly want to build a Kitchen table for someone...

Revonoc 28" Restoration

06-07-2015 07:51 PM by Mambrax | 3 comments »

Over view of a Revonoc 28” Restoration. Got it a rummage sale for $20. probably paid to much, but i never saw a other one like that before.So step 1 : removing all part. Be-ward of dead bugs !!! As seen it was in rough shape. Most all those get wrap all possible way, which make them unusable. It’s very important to square them out before any think. Now a plane that size is almost impossible to sand for the normal man like me. The only way is that I personally can u...

Thorsen House Cabinet #14: Complete! (in a manner of speaking)

06-04-2015 09:40 AM by EläväPuu | 3 comments »

The cabinet is in situ! We spent a few hours prepping and mounting the cabinet using four of these superlative products from Whitechapel Ltd: designed for bed construction, they easily have more than enough strength in terms of shear resistance and weight bearing. Amazing things. I recommend them and Whitechapel highly. So, the cabinet is complete save for the ongoing glass panel work. The world seemed to have gone through some s...

Thorsen House Cabinet #13: Making headway on the glass work....

05-10-2015 04:59 PM by EläväPuu | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since I’ve updated with progress, so here’s a minor update. The last couple of weeks have been spent finessing the cabinet with tons of sanding and re-waxing. Everything is going wonderfully on that side of things as long as we ignore the tired aching hands! The last couple of weekends have been spent doing the Tiffany-type glasswork. We chose a Verrerie de Saint-Just clear textured glass (which we believe is now discontinued) complimented by a relativel...

Make a Pallet Sign - DIY Project

05-04-2015 01:08 AM by Chris McDowell | 5 comments »

Watch the build video here: I’ve made a few of these pallet signs before. Rustic items like this seem to pretty popular. I thought that since I wastaking the time to build them I might as well record the process in case anyone is looking for an easy project to get started in woodworking. The pallet sign in the intro was one of the first things I ever made and it was a good intro to measuring, using a table saw, and learning glue-up/clampin...

Thorsen House Cabinet #10: First cabinet door...."J'adore/j'ai a door"

04-03-2015 10:36 AM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Apologies for mangling French irretrievably there just to force out a pun…. The doors presented a few logistical challenges. Surprisingly, the internal rebate angles were the least of these. The largest challenge was in the form of how best to clamp the main outer frame whilst gluing. The frame comprises morticed hinge and lock stiles with two tenoned upper/lower rails. (the mortice and tenon sizes increased in height which the drawing does not indicate) Prior to any shapin...
