Changing Table/Dresser #1: SketchUp Design

08-25-2007 05:03 AM by chambbj | 5 comments »

My first project. My first post. With a lot of inspiration from my father-in-law, I’ve recently gotten very interested in woodworking. I don’t really have room for a shop or many tools of my own, but after finding a community workshop not far from my house, I thought the time might be right to finally give this a shot. I think one of my great motivations in woodworking is the chance to make functional furniture for my family. Though I’m worried it may be a little am...

My first real piece of equipment.

08-24-2007 05:29 AM by WayneS | 17 comments »

Things just keep getting better and better! Feast your eyes on what I came into possession of today. My buddy has been remodeling his house for the last two years, and had purchased this Rigid T3650 10” table saw during the process. Well the remodel is over, and the saw is all mine to use. Needless to say the saw needs a good cleaning after sitting idle for a few months, but you think I’m complaining …HECK NO. In fact, one reason I’m posting is to get some suggestions for cl...

"Portable" Table Saws #3: How to mount an outfeed table on this??

08-14-2007 05:52 AM by Hawgnutz | 12 comments »

Here is the bad boy that almost got one or two of my fingers. (It still has a blood stain on one corner.) This picture shows the stock in the background that I was cutting dados in when I had my accident. Today, I completed three dadoes in all 20 boards, planed them to size, and then cut them to the correct final size. (Got back on the bronc that threw me!) My new (used) Ridgid planer worked like a champ, saving me hours of power sanding and hand planing! Anyway, with my “...

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

08-10-2007 09:38 PM 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

08-03-2007 12:59 PM 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

08-02-2007 04:20 PM 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

08-02-2007 03:37 AM 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...

08-01-2007 10:28 PM 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...
