Shop Updates #3: Router Table #2

2202 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 12 comments »

Well i got a good amount done today but not as much as i would have hoped. first i cut the slots for the t-tracks that will secure the fence. i ordered it and i don’t have it yet so i figured that i would cut the slots now so i can attach the router table to the saw and when i get the t-tracks just pop them in. now that everything having to do with the torsion box is completed (including the router being mounted, sorry no pictures) i will turn my attention to the legs. i just too...

well unfortunately i will not be able to have the table saw station that i was hoping for but a router table is something i need so i am making one on the side of my table saw. i started by cutting down all the MDF with my cousin pat’s (Anthrax) help. then i started putting the torsion box together. it is all based on where the bolts are for my table saw and in the center fitted for the rockler plate that i am planning on getting in the future just i don’t have the money now. so h...

Album Art Series

2211 days ago by pat | 6 comments »

It’s been three weeks since I started my Album cover art series. You’ve seen me woodburn Eddie and the metal monsters of Iron Maiden and you saw Colonel Claypool and the Primus crew. But now I want to hear from you lumberjocks what record album cover do you want me to woodburn. If you have an idea of your own you can certainly comment it or you could choose some I listed. 1. AC DC2.Dragonforce3.Aerosmith4.Rush

Gamble Entry table #3: It's comming along...

2212 days ago by abie | 8 comments »

I’ve been busy making the parts fit sanding and then staining with Red Mahagony….Lyptus turned out darker than I imagined but it is cool.. The bread boards were also Lyptus but a darker hue.. so the contrast was fine.The Box joints were cut using an Incra jig as did David M… and I cut another set with traditional hand saw as my instructor wanted.. I can’t tell the difference. Splines on the breadBoards were tricky as the dado blade does not account for warpage and mi...

Gamble Entry table #2: next

2220 days ago by abie | 1 comment »

next on my adventure to emulate the Greene Bros “Gamble House” Entry Table.After laminating all the leg parts and sawing them on the band saw, I made templates of the dimensions so that I could cut matching rails and cross members the exact same size. One of my many lessons in my brief time as a wood worker … make templates and try things on scraps before cutting expensive wood.Next I band sawed the upper and lower rails with the famous Greene and Greene cloud lift pattern....

Indian Intarsia

2230 days ago by Allison | 20 comments »

I thought I would try my hand at writing a blog here. This is a totally different way for me as far as patterns go. I am used to a pattern that is on a sheet of paper the size the object will be when done. and then you make copies and cut out the pieces of the paper pattern and place them on your wood. This pattern came like this.One sheet of paper NOT actual size.Then the pattern itself IS in pieces you need at the size they are suppose to be. When I first started this, a couple days ago, I ...

Front Porch Rockers #4: Completion

2232 days ago by bhack | 12 comments »

This has been a very satisfying project. First I can do the work, and second I learned a lot new things. Cutting out the arc for the rockers was a new process for me. But, I found that I can do it. I didn’t do them perfect, but they will be the next time because I now have the confidence to do it. Doing new things on each of the power and hand tools now boosts my confidence to try something new and more difficult. So, if you are new to the hobby you can do bigger and better things if yo...

Shop Built Hand Tools #3: My favorite Sanding Block

2233 days ago by USCJeff | 9 comments »

I have a few sanding blocks, but this one gets the most use. Design is a take off of a Wood Magazine article. The pictures are telling as to the construction. The only hidden detail is there is a plugged hole under the felt. It is for the screw that is epoxied to the bottom that attaches to the wingnut. I chose hardwood scraps that I had on hand. They consist of cherry and two different walnut species. The felt was a self adhesive scrap left over from a jewelry box project. It measure...

Commisions #3: Mirror Frame #3

2235 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 9 comments »

Well over the last two days i have been able to really get some good solid work done on my mirror frames. first i was able to mill all the lumber to final width. then it was time to cut the piece. i don’t have a long miter bed with a stop block so i used double stick tape to hold the rough identical pieces together to give me exactly the same piece. the first picture is putting the tape on and the second is all the piece cut to final length. Then i cut the groove in th...
