Mission Style Bed #3: Head and Footboard Assembly

04-11-2012 11:50 PM by Fraser Gandy | 2 comments »

Alright, did a lot of work the past while, even though it seems like I haven’t. I’ve been busy working!I started with the footboard, I first lined all the slats up in between the rails. This was probably one of the most frustrating parts of this whole project. Once I got them all pretty well in there, I attached the rails to the legs and that sorted out the slats for the most part. Once I did that, I noticed that my mortises and slats and stuff didn’t quite look as nice a...

Intarsia Basics #2: Preparing Your Wood and Pattern for Cutting

04-11-2012 01:20 AM by KoryK | 18 comments »

Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...

I'm still here

04-06-2012 01:25 AM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

I haven’t fallen of the face of the earth but I am behind on the Queen Size bed build. It has become a money pit because of a 5/8” mortising bit that I didn’t own. Then I realized that the throat on the mortising machine is on 6” and the bottom rail is 8” so I ordered a 5/8” mortising chisel. While waiting for it to get here I dry fit the head board and low and behold a queen size bed is more than 6’ wide and by the way that was the longest length of pipe clamp that I owned. So then I shell o...

Cutting Boards #5: Sanding, routing, sanding...

04-01-2012 08:33 PM by MolokMot | 2 comments »

The cutting board as seen in the picture below is just about complete. Just needs a little more sanding and finish. Since the last post, here are the steps completed: Using my dewalt random orbit sander I went through both 60 and 100 grit. After that I used what I believe to be a half inch round over in several passes. I left one side a much lighter pass then the other so that the cutting board can be used either way depending on the taste of its new owner. After routing, I went thro...

Wall hanging toolcabinet #3: The doors

03-29-2012 12:16 PM by theSawdustSurfer | 1 comment »

Hi LJ´s I finally got the time to work with the doors to my cabinet. My first idea was to make panel doors but I do want the surface on the inside of the doors to be as clean as possible, without joints. i also want to use the full thickness of the plywood, 18 mm, to be able to hang tools on the inside. I decided to make a compromise, the look of panel doors on the outside and the sturdiness of using a clean plywood surface on the inside. to be continued … Thank you...

Well yes it has been a while since I did anything. But I thought well I better actually start well finish doing the stands since Robbie has actually plumbed our Dishwasher… kinda was the deal. Anyway this is kinda the idea I have been thinking about for a while. Laminated pine to the rimu and cut. Just needs a good sand. Then the base and the top. I do have to make another top plate as the last one was not quite long enough. Anyway it will be sanded and then glued and screwed. We need ...

CLAMP FOR MY BIESMEYER FENCE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

03-27-2012 01:07 AM by Metrotek | 1 comment »

Greetings to all once again; I am attaching photos of the clamp for my new Biesmeyer style fence that is under construction. It came out fairly well.The circular pads are adjustable by carriage bolts threaded in to t-nuts to correct any undesired angularity. The ¾” dowel is a plunger that the cam pushes to lock the fence in place. The two piece pad that the dowel pushes will have an elastomer sandwiched between the pieces to provide a spring action so the cam can over clamp it...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #652: The Sands of Time

03-26-2012 09:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Most woodworkers that I talk to don’t like sanding. Of the many steps in the process of doing a woodworking project, I think I am pretty safe in saying that it is the least liked part. In fact, I am amazed at the number of people who spend hours on a project that simply skip over the sanding step completely. I don’t always understand why they would do that. While it may not be the most pleasant part of making a project, it is among the most important in most things that we cre...
