Custom Cabinet Construction #5: Furniture Bath Vanity

356 days ago by rhett | 2 comments »

Doing a commission for a local architect with whom I’ve worked before. Furniture grade cabinetry or cabinet grade furniture, call it what you will, this is what I’m building. Her borrowed design, tweeked by me. Thought I’ld try to keep track and post photos for other woodworkers. Should be an easy build. The bridle joint at the top of the legs should be fun. This cabinets could easily be adjusted to fit in any bath. Fortunately she is wanting a light colored ...

Dont throw away your Frog Tape containers, repurpose them!

362 days ago by ScottKaye | 4 comments »

Ok. Time for me to give something back to the community as I have taken and taken and so far have not given back. I was up at a friends shop yesterday getting help with a project (thanks Jim!) when I brought out three old containers of Frog Tape each containing a different 5” grit of sanding disc for my ros. He thought it was a great idea, so I decided to post it here with pictures. My workshop like so many of yours, is in my un-conditioned garage and its subject to all ...

finding a new sorce of wood #1: A laugh on me

366 days ago by Jim Earl | 3 comments »

Well I new this wouldn’t last. but it was great as long as it did, What I’m talking about is my wood sorce was a friend of mine worked at a factory that received there inventory with 1/8”, 1/4” and 1/2” plywood, and so he was able to pick up truck loads of it. Believe it or not, it was really nice wood. Beautiful grain, and I coulkd actually fit the pictures to the wood. Would you believe I lost his Phone number I have been trying to get ahoad of him, to get anot...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #27: some progress

366 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 1 comment »

Well no pictures this evening. I managed to get a little shop time in, worked on the leeboard mounts, and the step for the mast. Those are ready for gluing in. I temporarily fixed my ROS but the bottom popped out again so I guess it’s time to shop for a new sander. I still have the old B&D half sheet sander of my Dad’s which is just shy of 412 years old and it still works, why can’t a three or four year old sander that spent much of the time in a drawer keep working ...

Reclaimed Glory #1: Salvaged Mystery Wood

376 days ago by palaswood | 10 comments »

Hi Wood lovers – I came upon some “trash” wood with some casters attached (not sure what it once was) discarded in a dumpster behind a renovator’s shop destined for the landfill, but fate would have other plans for it. The wood seemed in great shape with some good character beneath, so I rescued it, bundled it up, and rode it home on my bicycle (yes, thats right). When I got it home and sanded it down, I was AMAZED at the figure of these boards. Problem is I couldn’t figur...

shop jigs/furniture/fixtures #1: Zero Clearance Insert

379 days ago by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

Well last night I was piddlin round with an idea to make a ripping fence/jig to attach to my circ saw. The one that came with it apparently grew feet and walked away, when i was on my last boat trip. I have some 9 and 10 foot long SYP 2×10-12s i want to rip the pith out of for a future project. Longest board i can try to rip on my table saw is 8’ give or take an inch. I was trying to rip out some ~1/4” strips to frame out the circ saw base on a piece of plywood. One of the st...

Southwest Cocktail table #7: Table Built - on to the the finish ........ line.

381 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 15 comments »

Had a bit more time this morning and late afternoon. I finished up building the legs then got them attached. Lot’s of cleanup work is required but the rest of my time will be spent making it just so. I decided to make the inside legs into triangles. It’s a lot less work, and as I understand it, sturdier. I go a little cleanup done of the top. I’m chomping at the bit to do some more work. Id be surprised if I could get her ready for finish in ano...

From a 200 year old ruin to a workshop, a 3 year journey... #14: Doors and Windows

386 days ago by Serradura | 8 comments »

No, sometimes it doesn’t feel all that smart, working with wood. Every time there’s a bushfire you start to think of making doors and windows out of steel. But as a woodworker you’ll get over that thoughts quickly if you walk around a lumberyard in search for some wood to make the doors.The smell of sawdust is just to familiar and no other material can compete with that. It’s a not just dangerous living among all those trees during a 3 months rain free a...

David Marks Finishing Class 8-1 to 8-5-13 #1: Beautiful Santa Rosa

388 days ago by newTim | 2 comments »

Day one at David Marks finishing class in beautiful Santa Rosa. David and wife Victoria are terrific hosts, the class is small with an interesting variety of folks, and the weather couldn’t be better. And hey! I’m on vacation! I’m really enjoying the pace of the class with enough structure to keep it moving, but plenty of time to get to know David and the other students and to get all our questions answered. My goal is to establish a broad foundation in wood finishi...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #19: Details, details....

388 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

As I closed in the bouyancy tanks I wasn’t really happy with the fit of the lid. I’d allowed a little wiggle room in the width of the top to line everything up nicely (I’m learning not to just rely on measuring:-) so I’d expected some over lap. The funny part is when I got things nailed down the overlap wasn’t all on one side. One the starboard side I’d nailed the inboard bulkhead first for the whole length and then pushed and pulled to fit the top to th...
