Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #3: Arched Candle Holder - It's all about adapting

12-18-2009 06:03 PM by sras | 5 comments »

Well, trimming up the sides removed the gaps I showed in the previous post. BUT the trimming exposed other gaps! Definitely needed to do a better job of clamping! Time to adapt. Time to go back to the shrinking scrap pile. As luck would have it, I had two strips of cherry from an even older project. If I remember right, these strips are from the first cherry boards I ever bought (19 years ago). Both strips are long enough and one of them has enough length to cover the ends as well. ...

Redwood Slabs

12-18-2009 02:37 AM by dougdeg | 5 comments »

We order a few redwood slabs off of ebay, We were supprised when they came they were quite large, one was 44” wide and 84” long and the other was 27” wide and 72” long. They were cut in a way that most edges were a natural live edge, Which gave them a nice free form look, Redwood was a lot softer than i had thought it wood be but nice to work with.We decide to create a redwood coffee table out of the first piece. I have a friend that has a 36” planer wit...

Just for Fun... #7: A word or two about sanding...

12-12-2009 01:29 AM by littlecope | 15 comments »

Those who read Part #6 will recall that two days ago I left off here…I went into the shop yesterday set to begin making the panels for this, the latest small box. But it was one of those days, and we’ve all had them, where my ambition level was at a low ebb… I didn’t have unlimited time to work either, other things to do, you know? But I did see something within my reach, with the time I had, namely, Sanding... There, I’ve gone and said it!! After reading numerou...

New tool arriving

12-10-2009 05:52 AM by rustfever | 12 comments »

Tomorrow, at 9;30 AM, my new ‘old’ Hans stroke sander is to arrive. This one has a 120” X 48” table and an 8” belt. The tables adjusts in/out/up/down. I have been lusting for this tool for some thirty years, after having used one briefly in the late ‘70’s. It is just the size to work upon that ‘promised’ dining room table for Son and his wife. I harvested a number of Claro Walnut trees and root-balls a year ago. The 4/4 material i...

Tall Oak Mirror ... getting warmer :-)

12-02-2009 04:19 AM by NBeener | 22 comments »

I’m so close! The clamps are holding the oak backer board on … which is holding the mirror in place. The top oak trim cap is just sitting there. The bottom trim cap was a no-show on photo day. It looks suspiciously like the top piece. BUT … I’m almost done! The trim blocks (the four corner pieces that surround the frame) are glued on. I’m going to run the top and bottom edges through my jointer, along with the top and bottom cap pieces … just to ...

Handplane Restoration #25: Stanley 112 Update

11-26-2009 06:45 AM by WayneC | 5 comments »

Just a quick update. I ordered and recieved a Hock replacement blade for the plane from Craftsman Studio. While I was at it, I had a moment of weakness and also ordered a Hock burnishing rod. I really like Craftsman Studio, good prices and quick shipping. The burnishing rod comes without a handle so I enlisted one of my friends to turn a quick brass handle. The Hock blade is very high quality and I like the finish. Photos are below. I also have a some evapo-rust on order. Once t...

Grain Matching Corners on a Box #1: How Many Can You do?

11-12-2009 04:11 AM by scrappy | 11 comments »

I have been doing some thinking about Grain Matching corners. We all see boxes that the wood has been wraped around to match 3 corners, but the 4th is allways off. I think I have come up with a way to match all 4 sides. I will be making a box when I can get back in the shop.(hurt my shoulder and LOML won’t let me play until next week) Will take step by step pics and post in this series for everyone. Keep an eye open for updates. If anyone else has a process for this, feel free ...
