African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #6: Top edge profiling, sanding, and oil

01-10-2018 05:36 AM by Reinan | 1 comment »

Sanded the breadboards in tonight, and used a 1/8 roundover bit to break the top and bottom edges of the top panel. Then added some BLO mixed 50/50 with MS to brighten it up and show it off a little. I like the way the mahogany grain aligns with the curl in the maple and I really love the quarter-sawn curly maple on the edges.

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #4: Main panel sanding and and machining tongues

01-04-2018 02:20 PM by Reinan | 1 comment »

Tight week for time, but managed to get some work shop time yesterday. Level sanded the maple main panel using a 4 1/2×26 belt sander for the heavy removal then finished up with a ROS to clean up and smooth things. I also machined the tongues for the breadboard ends using a pattern following bit and the corresponding mahogany blank as the pattern. I get some depth variations across the tongue, from either my ability to hold the router With the same pressure, or the pattern piece flexi...

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leave upright. My Tryton router had it builti...

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

Need a Good—Looking Coat Rack? You'll Have This One Done in a Few Hours

11-28-2017 01:46 PM by ScottBelleri | 4 comments »

I built this simple DIY coatrack in less than one day, using just a 2×4 and a hardwood dowel. I happened to have a drill press on my Shopsmith so I used that, but a drill with a drill guide (about $20 from Harbor Freight) can do the job just about as well. This project can be done easily with simple tools, really just a table saw, drill with drill guide, and sander. I used epoxy to glue the dowels in just in case they weren’t tight enough. They went in with some resistance, b...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #8: Edge profile and final sanding, onto finish work

11-26-2017 03:19 PM by Reinan | 3 comments »

As this table is a gift for a young couple, I thought a rounded edge on the most exposed corners would be prudent; possible small ones in the future and all. So I used a 1/8 round over bit in my venerable PC 100 which did the job well but ackwardly at times. I wish I had a smaller unit for this kind of work and have been considering the purchase of a lighter one handed type router. After completing the machine work, I sanded everything to 400 grit, wet sanding the table top. I put one thi...

IMPORTANT MESSAGE- THE PASSING OF MY FATHER, GLENN

11-07-2017 08:29 AM by holsworthwoodworks | 8 comments »

Good evening everyone! After several weeks of tremendous pain, I, Jennifer Holsworth (Kendrick) and my husband Jacob, have just now gained the strength to let everyone know that my father, Glenn Holsworth, had suddenly and tragically passed away on September 14th, 2017. Since we’ve been dealing with this terrible time on our own (without support from any family members, as it has always been my father, Glenn, myself, my husband and my son since forever) it has been very hard to cl...
