The Impossible Staircase

06-27-2010 10:19 PM by Div | 48 comments »

Sometime last year I was approached by a client who wanted a very unusual staircase for a new house he was having built. It had to consist of a single beam with the treads straddling the beam. To make matters interesting, the beam had to have the shape of a compound bow when seen in plan view. To make matters even more interesting the beam also had to have concave sides when seen in section, wide at the top, narrow at the bottom.No structural plans were available and the architect had only pr...

Woodturning...a Segmented Vase of Walnut and Maple #1: Part 1...the transition at 800 rpm

06-15-2010 10:13 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

Perhaps the object pictured above looks a bit like a wooden pineapple, but trust me it will look a whole lot different as you will soon see. There are 14 rings to this vase and a total of 416 segments that are fit and glued together using Titebond 2 yellow glue. If the vase is going to hold water as well as flowers then an opening is necessary. As you can see a 1-7/8” forstner bit is being used to drill out an opening to allow for a glass vial to be inserted. The vas...

The Wine Rack #9: Large Racks Complete

06-09-2010 05:56 AM by Todd Clare | 2 comments »

Although still distracted by the crown molding project, as well as the “rip off the front porch and redesign it” project with the architect we hired, I have found some time to continue on the wine rack. I used the template to flush-trim the larger racks to the final shape and surface. My search for double sided tape ended up with no success (Rockler’s supplier isn’t making it, Woodcraft was out, etc. Need to start searching those internets for it), so I added the ...

Finishing the slats

06-05-2010 10:35 PM by Blinky | 3 comments »

Another piece of scrap has befallen my assorted blades, and has now become the slats for the bench. It was a large hunk of Doug Fir or Pine. It was originally going to be a large slab bench, but I decided it would be too large & unwieldy. It was 3” x 12” x 8’ – warped, twisted, split, cupped, weather-worn and worm-eaten; beautiful!Now it’s 6 slats 2 1/4” w x 1 1/2” h x 52” long. The previously mentioned character charms still exist, just...

Patio / Deck Bench #1: Medicine cabinet on hold - Bench slips ahead

05-27-2010 05:38 AM by Blinky | 3 comments »

I set aside the me I decided to use some scraps of Ipé from the deck that was built a couple years ago to finally build that bench, to sit on top of said deck. Here is a sketchup snapshot of part of the design; And a few of work in progress. I cut the butt-swoop in the top of the ‘ribs’ on the bandsaw. I cut the dadoes in the rail to fit the seat supports w/a router, then drilled holes for walnut dowels.I tried use the best SS screws I had, but the 1st one snapped, and ...

The first Art Box I completed and later posted was “Rachels Box”. I wasnt sure how it would be received, but it was a big hit right off the line. It just recently topped over 10,000 views and is the most viewed box on LJ. Wow! http://lumberjocks.com/projects/tag/box/by/views Its popularity and the ones that followed were what motivated me to post the tutorial which was a help to many.http://lumberjocks.com/Argyllshire/blog/9415 I still get mail asking about this style of box...

Drum Sander #1: From Micro to Macro

05-13-2010 09:40 PM by BritBoxmaker | 13 comments »

Having thoroughly enjoyed making the Little Bess Ring Box, the smallest project I’ve ever made in boxes, I have decided to go to the other end of the scale. I’ve always hankered after a Drum Sander but could never afford the £500+ price tag. I idly tapped ‘drum sander’ into the search box and found that not only was I not alone in not being able to afford one but that there was a solution. Build you own. There are numerous ideas out there but the soundest seems to be ...

Medicine Cabinet Part ?? #1: Not quite chronological process

05-12-2010 02:24 AM by Blinky | 0 comments »

I finally have the door looking more and more like a door. I’m sure I’m going about this bass-ackwards, but I’m beginning to feel happy about the results.I’ve gone from this: TO THIS for routing the profiles, I used Whiteside 6001 matched pair rail & stile bits. So next i will cut and assemble the box/carcase, so it will fit the glass shelves. Then I will trim down the door stiles to fit that size, with about 1/2” on both sides and the top as ...
