The Bar #1: The Bar to man cave

11-29-2014 09:58 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...

The Rules of Work

11-23-2014 03:30 AM by Alan | 2 comments »

This is just a list of rules that I have either come across or thought of for myself that I need to keep in mind at all times when (trying to) do fine woodworking. This list is mostly for my own reference, and in no way to be considered exhaustive, but rather to be added to and updated as I continue to learn. If you fine folks reading it have suggestions to add, or strongly disagree with something I have on here, feel free to leave a comment! I’m here to learn. 1. Keep grain orie...

Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack #6: It's up, the rack is hanging and Just About Done!!!

11-17-2014 03:15 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 0 comments »

All I have to say is that the rack is up and it is going to create a TON of free space, especially that wall! I am going to be able to get a lathe in there some day instead of having a mess of sheet goods! I added extra storage above the rack too. I have a place to sticker lumber now! Please take a look and leave your comments to let me know what you think!

My entry into the Christmas Ornament Challenge

11-16-2014 04:58 AM by cpine | 4 comments »

This is my entry into the Christmas Ornament Challenge put on by Alan Stratton and Carl Jacobson. This is the third annual challenge and I ma amazed at the beautiful ornaments folks have made! This idea came to me as I have made toys quit a bit in the past and I thought just make a version of an airplane that is smaller. Proportions were determined mostly on the fly and are just approximations of what should look good. Much of what I did I had in my head and I made the first piece then fit ...

Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack #5: Got the Ceiling Connection on the Hinge Side Completed

11-10-2014 02:06 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 2 comments »

I finally past that stinking kidney stone. I was out of work for 2 weeks because of this thing. I passed it Friday afternoon, so now I feel pretty normal now. It just aches now, the pain is manageable. I imagine that it will take a few more days to feel completely better. Anyhow, after 2 weeks off, I was able to get in the shop today and do a bit of work. (Admittedly, I tried while I was off work because I was bored out of my mind, but I could only stand for about 20 minutes, so that ...

Nakashima / Krenov Nightstand #3: Back Panel and Dust Frame

11-01-2014 08:26 PM by Matthew | 1 comment »

So far I have covered the basic case construction. Next we need to add the back panel and make the dust frame (or web frame) for the drawer. This will also serve as the installation point for the upper knife hinge. So, I started by gluing up a 1/4” panel of Sapele for the back, using the router bit as a guide for the final thickness. Next, we can cut the groove in the case pieces to accept the panel. I am using a 1/4” straight bit and cutting 3/16” deep. We don’t...

Nakashima / Krenov Nightstand #2: Case Construction

10-31-2014 10:56 PM by Matthew | 2 comments »

Alright, lets get started. The goal today was to get the case dry fit, and that means cutting the mitered edge dovetails. here is what the goal is: The point of this joint is to get a nice through dovetail, without the butt joint in the front. I want the nightstand to be mitered on both the front and back of the case, so we have 16 miters to cut. We’ll start with our panels glued up, flattened and cut to final size: Now, with a marking gauge set for the panel thickness...
