Simple Bedside Table #4: A PIP...waiting on clothes to dry

Had to go to the basement, and check the clothes dryer…..half the load needed to go through again…checked on the Quart can of Poly Gloss Varnish…to see IF I needed to by a new can… Opened the lid…looked like new, only 1/2 of a pint missing…had a brush handy..and since I was going to be down here anyway, waiting on the dryer… How about a PIP? View from the right side….that is not “blotch” it is grain.. View from the center...

05-31-2018 07:26 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Bedframe is completed, installed, posted….Boss approved…soooo, I can get back to that little table? Since this thing was still out, I cut the bad sections out of the 1×4s..enough “good” was left.. To make two short and two long blanks….set these out of the way, for now. That 2×10 under them? may have a used for it, on another project…right now it is in the way…clamps came off the top…ran a plane along all four edges.. Which...

05-31-2018 07:08 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Wanted something to do, while I was waiting on parts for that bedframe project…While picking up lumber for the bed, I also picked a 1×10 x 4’, and a couple 1×4 x 4’ boards….just Pine, cheap ones from Menard’s….had to dig through and find the best in the bin…. Which left the problem of legs for the table….table didn’t NEED to be all that tall…..had a chunk of 2×10, about 29” long…..nasty mess in the cente...

DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #5: Magnetic Japanese Handsaw Guide

05-12-2018 06:42 PM by Humus Workshop | 6 comments »

Hi there! The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time. As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https:...

Shop Notes #15: Four Done, Three . . . for Later

04-03-2018 03:59 PM by Steve | 3 comments »

The weather cleared last week, and I was pleased to be able to field four completed cabinets at the spring opening of a local winery. Sales weren’t terribly brisk, but March is normally completely dead. Any sales at all are an improvement. Of the cabinets I completed, three were in walnut, the other in sapele. I finished this first cabinet in amber shellac. I have a lot to learn yet about this finish, I’ve looked at a few videos for guidance, and they tend to show an app...

I made this tapered leg table to have a place to work, study and edit. The top is made of Sapele and the base is maple finished with milk paint. It was a fun project using a variety of machines and hand tools. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNId8i-sS3o

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #3: Leg machining

12-30-2017 02:29 AM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Got a couple more hours in the shop this afternoon, so I started working on the legs. I machined out the intersecting mortises in the leg tops and cut the two sided taper. Then I rebated the short aprons using the same jig I made for the legs. After a short set back of cutting too deeply and having to blank a new short apron, I got the rebates cut to fit snug in the leg mortises. Some final sanding and cutting the cross lap in the aprons and it’s onto the long aprons. I will transition...

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...
