Walnut Slabs #1: Today I purchased two georgous walnut slabs and sanded to a smooth surface

01-04-2015 08:00 AM by Rob Drown | 3 comments »

Today I was at a friends shop learning how to do a polished finish as part of an apprenticeship program of The Sierra Nevada Fine Furniture Makers Guild and ended up purchasing and sanding down these two amazing walnut slabs. Now I have to figure out what exactly to do with them. I think the first one is going to become my apprenticeship project. I am thinking the slab will be a tabletop with continuous grain apron and a center drawer. Not sure about the legs.

Work Shop Organization #2: Power Tool Storage Update

01-02-2015 11:14 AM by Nate66 | 3 comments »

After drawing the plans, I went to the store to purchase the lumber to build the storage box. Had to make a few substitutions due to the price of lumber here in England. Instead of using ply, I settled for MDF. Still quite expensive but nothing near the price of ply or pine. Anyway, I will post pictures of the work in progress.

Triple Chaos #1: A CBG Called Amália, the making of

12-22-2014 09:00 PM by Serradura | 4 comments »

Well, technically it’s not a cigar-box guitar because the (new) box was made for 3 small sample bottles of booze, Port to be precise. The name Amália has everything to do with a Portuguese Fado-guitar being the inspiration for this build. More detailed pictures on Triple Chaos

A Strategy for Woodworking #38: Sanding is Evil

12-15-2014 03:55 PM by Gary Rogowski | 6 comments »

By conservative estimate, over my 40 years of woodworking I have sanded several hundred miles of wood. My sanding odometer broke one day and I never fixed it so this is just a guess. I figure that I sanded enough wood for a line that went off as far as the eye could see into the desert and then beyond that. I sanded all that wood to within an inch of its life and then just a wee bit more. To be certain. I sanded the tops of tops and the bottom of tops. I sanded the insides of drawers and t...

Coffee Table Build #9: Top

12-05-2014 12:56 AM by RoadHogg | 5 comments »

Ironically, the first thing I did for this project was to glue up the huge 42” square top…over-sized of course. A long time later, I pulled it out and began to put on the finishing touches. I bought a “Thumbnail” router bit from Lee Valley and I ran that around the edges. Of course, I worked a long time to make sure the top was square etc. I built an extended router base to help stabilize the router while routing the edge detail (thanks Mark!). I ran a 1/4...

Turning Projects #4: Turning Projects from Thanksgiving Weekend

12-02-2014 03:49 AM by ca8920 | 0 comments »

Here are three pens I turned for co-workers over the Thanksgiving Day weekend. The first two pens are gold in color 30cal Bolt Action Pens. The next three are Patriot pens. The Patriot pens are new to the market and make a very pretty pen once turned. The last two are also new to the market. The last two are Western style pens, also very nice looking pens.
