Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #6: Finding shop time in a busy schedule -or- Making slats & cutting pieces

04-09-2010 06:24 AM by sras | 11 comments »

The next step in this project is making the curved slats for the back of the stool. The process is the same as for the curved parts with a couple exceptions. First the pieces for each set of slats are cut from two blocks. These blocks were next to each other when cut from the large stock. Instead of marking with a saw cut as I did last time, I used a permanent marker. By angling one stripe across both blocks, I am able to keep the strips in order. The total number of stripes tells me w...

Beefing up the jamb to my new shop door.

03-23-2010 05:07 AM by 559dustdesigns | 0 comments »

In order to reinforce the jamb I first upgraded the strike plate which I showed in blog part 1. http://lumberjocks.com/559dustdesigns/blog/14664Today I f...

Shaker Night Stand #10: Fill my eyes ... with that double vision!

03-08-2010 02:29 AM by NBeener | 27 comments »

So … among my 3,000 eye problems is intermittent double vision. But … I don’t think that’s the problem, here. I seek the expert counsel of the venerated and revered LumberJocks: IS IT just me …. ?? Tenons are better the second time around!! Incidentally, I occasionally do more than just clean my shop :-) Cheers, All!

Right now, i am in the process of making a candle holder for my wife. I am using some scrap oak for the legs, and quite possibly some maple for the tops and sides.

Sorry been so long……..... finished the project and gave it to my wife for her birthday……. she took it to work and I forgot to take pictu...

I am building this for a friend Over Seas. Her name is Ines so that is what this is named also. The ” Lazy Ines ”. It ought to be fun to finish. I do not have a thickness planer so it has been all Hand Planers. Also the edges are being rounded out by hand with a rasp. You really appreciate the work when you have limited tools!!!!

Sanders

02-28-2010 06:58 AM by kosta | 3 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a blog post on sanders because I have gotten a lot of questions about them. There are basically 3 sizes of sanders hand sanders, benchtop sanders, and stationary sanders. Hand sanders include palm sanders, random orbit sanders or ROS, detail sanders, and belt sanders. Palm sanders vibrate back and forth and you can get in corners with them because the bottom of the sander is a square shape. Random orbit sanders spin and vibrate and you get a really polishe...
