Which method will work the best?

01-16-2011 01:34 AM by nobuckle | 6 comments »

Last summer a friend of mine gave me a small red oak drop leaf table that he had stored in his shed. For him it was a “when I get around to it” project. Well, he never got around to it. When he gave it to me it was in pretty rough shape. The top was starting to separate due to the effects of the environment it was in. The table was partially disassembled so when I got it home I finished the process by removing all the hardware and parts that hold the top to the legs. The le...

Easy Shop Table

01-14-2011 04:02 AM by Lockwatcher | 37 comments »

I started this project after building an assembly table from an issue of Wood Magazine (March 2010). The table was a lot of work (the torsion box top) but the main unit holding the table up was an easy build. That’s when I hit upon the idea of using the same design for a group of extra tables for other uses. I’ve built a number of these already, and am using one as a router table, a miter saw station, and a sharpening station. It is built using standard re-dimensioned co...

My First Real Attempt at a project. A shaker end Table #6: Been A while but making progress.

01-10-2011 01:01 AM by therookie | 2 comments »

Well it has been a long time since I added an entry to my blog so I thought that I would continue updating my progress on the two shaker end tables I am building. Now that I have a biscuit joiner and a dovetail jig I was able to make the drawers and have been doin pretty good. I have changed the design so I can cover up the end grain as best I could and decided to put on a walnut bread-board edge.The drawer sides and back have to put the pins in the front still and mill the grove for the bott...

Thickness Planer or Drum Sander #1: Would you do this?

01-09-2011 05:23 AM by sandhill | 11 comments »

First: I have a 20” 900 pound Grizzly thickness planer that has been taking up a lot of room in my shop, I do use it but I was thinking of selling it and freeing up some space. I have a 22/44 Jet Drum sander that would do the same job using 60 or 80 grit paper, Second: If I do sell it I would get a 13” Dewalt planer that could be moved around much easier and stored under a bench. So what I was wondering is how many people would take this step? I’m conflicted about it but I ...

Quick Progress, Big Setback, Moving Foward...after a break

Clamping a cutting board row by row. Two blocks align it along with a vertical clamp. A deadblow mallet levels it. Stephanie came up with this method. I put packing tape on the alignment blocks and on the board they are sitting on to keep them from sticking. Clamping the rows together. After the disaster, back home, having discovered what can be saved. You can see some of the planer gouges. I have been working on an end grain cutting board. I hope to join the ranks soon of the cu...

Progressing Forward

12-13-2010 04:17 AM by matt garcia | 7 comments »

Well it finally wamed up enough around here to do some glue ups. I got my feet made and glued up, and attached them to the base. Then I routed the edge of the base, and made the transition moulding and glued that. Now a mother cold front has come through, and it looks like it might freeze tonight!! Good thing I got busy in the shop yesterday. I also went to Clark’s for some secondary lumber. It must have been my lucky day Saturday!! When I arrived at Clark’s, first thing ...
