Drawer Organization

01-12-2019 02:21 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 2 comments »

I recently finished some drawer organization work using 1/2” maple. I wanted to divide up the space in the cutlery drawer in our newly remodelled kitchen. I figured out a way to put the organizer in without having to put holes in the drawer from nails or screws. I documented this in a video if you’re interested. https://youtu.be/0h-65TXkX8I

Another box build #6: Friday's tasks

11-17-2018 09:18 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Road trip….bill paying….maybe a bit of woodworking…Might have the match cutter about figured out….but, centering it is still a PITA… I start with it retracted, then advance until it barely cuts….lots of candle wax, too…. I already had most of this last panel trimmed to match the other end panel….even had to drum sand the feet…. While cutting the tongues, I kept check, to make sure I was taking off the right amount..on each side&#...

Wooden Shackles #4: Accents Not Going as Planned

10-03-2018 12:55 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I had a thought (this is normally where my projects go wrong) and wondered if I could put some nice accents on my shackles like the real woodworkers do. Maybe some peg caps, or at least fake ones that make it look like less bland. I bought a selection of plug cutting bits and tried the 3/8” one to make small circles. I used a 3/8” inch forsner bit to make the holes … The problem came when I discovered the 3/8” plug cutter doesn’t in fact cut 3/8” ...

Wooden Shackles #3: Production and Practice

09-30-2018 01:28 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I decided to move forward with the styles and designs I’ve made up so far, stained them and I’m letting them dry at the moment. I chose to experiment and stain one set with PVC primer which is purple, I was surprised how well it worked! As a choice to try and do something a little more complicated I drew out a rounded set and cut them on the bandsaw, a tool I was always nervous about. But after sanding and tinkering I’m happy with the result. The plan...

Wooden Shackles #2: Fun with Shapes and Styles

09-26-2018 11:17 PM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

A few days work and some playing i got some interesting designs for my shackles so far, the next batch I will push the designs a bit further and try to incorporate more detail work. These are just from 2×4 and 2×6 pine lumber from Home Depot so they’re really soft and somewhat hard to work with for this. I’m still new to woodworking so I’m making lots of mistakes, this keeps me confident that I will improve and so will my work over time. The shackles I have ...

Wooden Shackles #1: Rough Shaping

09-24-2018 12:54 PM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

I decided to get back into woodworking with something simple. I don’t have much experience or practice with woodworking but I thought I’d do something to go along with the themes of a pirate group I’m part of in Oregon. This was the start of the wood I chose, a 2×6 that was part of an old fence we had in the back yard, still good. I cut it up to 12 inches long and used a hole saw to cut two 2” holes three inches to center from each end. The smaller h...

transforming wing back leather chairs into custom rocker for cabin #2: Working out the rocker radius by trial and error.

09-03-2018 09:41 AM by small_shop | 0 comments »

The radius on the original design was 60”. This was figured from a finished seat height of 20” x pi. The speed of the rocking motion was too fast, and the finished seat height was too high also. I shortened the radius of the rocker from 60” to 42”. This meant back to the drawing board on the design of the rockers, but the improvement of the rocking motion was well worth it! Now, it feels more like a rocking chair should. Good slow smooth rock, and a stable feeli...
