Stickley "Done Darkly" #2: Down to finishing...

2569 days ago by schroeder | 6 comments »

We have glued the breadboard, fitted it with Mountain Mahogany caps, and sanded…and sanded….and SANDED! (dark wood – lotsa sanding) This is with the third coat of sealer – now six coats of poly and we have to think about moving it (man its heavy!). Worth the effort thought to make such wild grain in the table. I’ll post once more when we have the final coat and put together in about ten days.Thanks!

Proud of my Buddy #1: First attempt at carving

2576 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 29 comments »

Hi all; I always mention my buddy Bruce, and here’s a post dedicated to him, (even though he’s still alive) knock on wood. He has no experience in wood carving, other to set a hinge or something. When we were building the Philadelphia Pie Crust Table, he would work on parts like turning the post, laying out the pattern for the top, as well as cutting it out and hollowing the middle of it with a router. The 1 inch thick board becomes about 5/8 inch in the middle are...

Hockey Stick Bedside Table #1: Table Top

2577 days ago by melski | 6 comments »

I look at a lot of regular wooden furniture and try and use hockey sticks to make it. I was looking at the side tables on the site and decided I could make one for my son’s room I finished the hockey stick table top last night. Final dimensions came out to 15-1/2” x 18” made 100% from hockey sticks, framed with hockey sticks on edge so that a glass pannel can be fit inside to make a flat smooth surface for the top.

Garden Bench and Table Construction #2

2577 days ago by CedarFreakCarl | 1 comment »

I forgot to mention on the first part of this blog that I don’t have any pictures of construction on the bench. This was due partly to my camera crapping out on me and I really didn’t know this thing would turn out as good as it did. After completing the bench and seeing the results, I figured it would be a good idea to take pictures when I decided to do the table and share them with ya’ll. So, I bought a new camera. With that said I continue:Here’s what I used for a &...

Stickley "Done Darkly" #1: The process and how it came to being...

2578 days ago by schroeder | 7 comments »

Stickley Done “Darkly” This is a table we are building for friends, (based in part on a design by Rex Alexander). The table above is a similar one I built out of White Oak. We have this group of friends who have a “retreat” (basically a hunting lodge built by men – for men). Kinda looks like the interior was done by Cabela’s, clearly the wives had no influence. It has a shower on the deck, six bedrooms lined up in a row, tile floors throughout, leather chairs and couch… rustic look thro...

Outdoor "Coffee" Table #6: Mortises

2583 days ago by Dorje | 6 comments »

I spent a few hours today mortising the stiles (of the frame top) for the table. Lots of mortises to do. I drilled the ends of all the mortises first, since it takes turning off the mortiser after every cut to carefully line up the chisel with the score marks at the ends. Then, I could leave the mortiser running and clear out the rest: One down, one to go: There we have it: Next up are the legs – mortises and tapers. I marked them the way shown below, but recalled seeing a po...

Arts and Crafts Style Pool Table - Video Series #5: Corbels for the leg system

2584 days ago by John Nixon | 5 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I Blogged for help here at LumberJocks (Link Here) with what size / shape /scale to make the corbels for the Pool Table. It was a great discussion and also a nice collaborative process with all who participated. There’s a great group of woodworkers from all skill levels here, and it was nice to hear to various viewpoints. The corbels are finished, and I think they came out great. The next installment in the video series covers the design and construction of t...

Powermatic PM 2000 #1: Finally... a new table saw!!

2584 days ago by Calvin Sphuler | 6 comments »

Well, I must say, it has been a long time in the coming but my time has finally arrived! I just got the go ahead from my lovely and kind wife Hillary to make that one purchase every aspiring woodworker dreams of. In my case, I have been dreaming of this day since the moment I walked out of highschool woodshop for good… the day I would purchase the table saw of my dreams. After I got the go-shead, I started doing quite a bit of research and found a lot of good saws. I knew that I w...

Outdoor "Coffee" Table #5: A little time'll get ya...

2586 days ago by Dorje | 16 comments »

Be forewarned: What follows is not the most interesting content, but I’m just trying to document the steps of this process… I had an ounce of time yesterday afternoon (less than an hour) so I cut up the stock to rough dimensions. I was nervous about this after finding out just how hard Jatoba really is. Very hard wood. Wasn’t sure me little Crapsman (cast iron top contractors saw w/ belt driven 1hp motor) was gonna do the trick, but boy am I proud of it! The pieces w...

Jigs #2: Multi Position Jigs

2586 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 17 comments »

Making better use of you time includes making jigs that can be used in different ways, or positions. The first series of photos show the jig used to cut the dovetail slot into the post, to receive the legs. This had a knob to tighten to prevent the post from spinning. The second set of photos were the jig for carving the post. This too, proved to be very helpful. It has boards on the back side that fit snugly over my bench top, while held tight in the vise. On the e...
