Barnsley Reproduction Build #22: “A Horse, A Horse, my Kingdom for a Horse”. (Bodger's Ball Part 3)

07-22-2015 02:10 AM by stevo_wis | 2 comments »

“A Horse, A Horse, my Kingdom for a Horse”. Terry and I left Nottingham after the Bodger’s Ball and Liecester was right on our way south. Richard the Third was uncovered during construction of a parking lot last year. DNA testing plus the fact that he had been beheaded and had a hunch back proved that it was in fact Richard who had been buried for several hundred years after dying in battle. A new burial place was constructed in the Liecester Cathedral and it was dedicated ...

Grizzly G0452P Jointer Set-Up #4: Serious Fence Issue

07-19-2015 07:25 PM by ERQ | 5 comments »

When assembling the fence for the jointer, you need to place the fence on the table in order to have clearance to insert and tighten the screws holding the fence bracket to the fench carriage that rides on the “ram” (the rack-and-pinion steel post): I noticed upon installing the fence, that there was a lot of play in the fence, but that the default position it wanted to settle at was with pretty uneven gaps at the infeed table side vs the outfeed table side, even with the i...

Ash Table Build #1: Milling & Legs

07-08-2015 12:15 PM by BinghamtonEd | 2 comments »

My wife, who teaches music/chorus at a high school, recently e-mailed me a picture of an empty space, with the caption “I need a table here.” The final dimensions were to be 72” long, 22” deep, and 36” high. She would also like a shelf, about 12” off the floor, that is only the back-half of the table depth. She would use this table for organizing sheet music, grading papers, etc. I was also given the direction to spend as little as possible, including lu...

Cutting Tenons with a Router Table Sled [w/bonus DIY dust collection]

06-29-2015 01:42 AM by Greg Guarino | 1 comment »

I don’t have a table saw, nor do I have the skills or tools to cut tenons with a hand saw. So I came up with this idea:... a sled that moves the work over a 3/4” router bit. It’s got a movable stop to set the length of the tenon. It works decently, although I have found that since I need to make several passes, each pass – somehow – ends up the tiniest bit different in depth than the others. The difference is truly tiny, just enough to see the “seamR...

22'' Wide slabs to dining table top

06-27-2015 07:11 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 5 comments »

This is a quick run down of one way to go from rather large Walnut slabs to a beautiful dining table top. By using large vintage woodworking machinery and new world wood working tools I take two 22’’ wide 2.5’’ thick Walnut slabs from rough raw lumber to a soon to be dining table top. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCoSTnI1JpA

Kitchen table Build #3: Day 3 starting the base

06-11-2015 01:43 PM by Woodpecker23 | 0 comments »

Today I had an hour or two to spare after work so to the shop I go. I finished up sanding the top and cleaned up the edges a bid. There is still more work to do on the table top but I wanted to move on to get the base mocked up just to get a taste of how my plans are working out with stability and the right height. It took a few hours to get this one end done and I had planned on taking a few pictures to show along the way but I was just in my own little world and didn’t th...

Kitchen table Build #2: day 1

06-09-2015 04:26 AM by Woodpecker23 | 0 comments »

So I started this entry this morning before I went out to the Shop to start this build I am so excited to do. Right as I was about to walk out the door go figure my wonderful daughter woke up and were begging for bacon and eggs… so the start had to hold of a little bit for the little princess’s. I did finally get out to the shop and here is what was accomplished today (definitely not as much as I had hope but a start non the less) I started with just some basi...

Farmhouse Table w_Buffet #4: Buffet Framework

04-23-2015 03:28 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 13 comments »

Simple enough here, right? Duplicate the look and feel of the aprons on the Farmhouse Table, but at the size and scale suited to a buffet with drawers. Whereas the table needed 2×4s for apron material, a buffet needs more height for drawers but less width of stock overall. I took the biggest clue from the squared-off stock at the top of the turned legs; it was that dimension setting the height of the casework and nothing else. So with a 3/4” undercap taken into account, I ne...

Barnsley Reproduction Build #18: Back to The Stretcher

04-06-2015 01:45 AM by stevo_wis | 1 comment »

It has been a while since I posted, but I have been working on the lower stretcher that connects the four legs. This is a repeat of what I did with the frame but the stretcher has a few additional features. The stretcher through mortises pass through the legs and since the joinery all shows it must be precise. In addition, the hayrake portion of the stretchers have curves cut into them which makes the glue up a bit more challenging. I am keeping the work pieces rectangular as long as po...
