They Honey-Do List #1: A sewing table

03-02-2009 10:44 PM by NedB | 4 comments »

My family recentlly suffered a loss, my Mother in-law passed away after several years of gradual declinging health followed by one week of steep downturn. As a result I’m faced with the opportunity to do something for the LOML That I’ve wanted to make for awhile. We’ll be re-purposing her mother’s bedroom into a sewing and computer room. I’ve got two spare benchtops sitting in my shop, so I’m going to build a set of legs for one of them for a sewing table/c...

Router Table #1: Design ideas, need some feedback

02-18-2009 09:44 PM by PurpLev | 43 comments »

OK, so yeah – another blog about a router table, but since I’m going to make one , might as well document it while I go, maybe someone can benefit from this. I’ve had a Rockler router table top + plate + fence which I got when I bought my router (Bosch 2 1/4hp). It had the misfurtune of being on the floor when my basement was flooded a couple of years ago, so that top was ruined. I since have been planning to replace it with a shop-built version, and make a full enclosed ...

cabinetry #1: Custom table for boutique women's clothing store

02-18-2009 06:17 AM by JMB | 2 comments »

This is a quick commission I landed last week. The gal asked me to finish it asap so she can open up her new store. Cabinetry is one of those wonderful things which is really easy to do when you’re properly setup, and make a lot of money doing it. I’m not gouging her, but I’m definitely making my minimum hourly on this project. The design is simple enough. Divided storage areas for a reciept printer, wrapping paper, shopping bags, etc. The larger of the two lower left cub...

A small conference table - the build #8: Finish the underside of the top, and get walnut ready for the legs

02-07-2009 03:59 PM by Al Navas | 1 comment »

From my blog - Friday's work: After applying four layers of the Target Coatings’ EM2000wvx topcoat to the underside of the table, it feels like it might be done. However, before turning over the top, to complete the finish on the top side, I will check it again tomorrow morning (Saturday), and decide then. Today I sanded lightly but thoroughly between each application of the topcoat. It paid off, as the fourth and final application today resulted in a wonderfully smooth surface. In the ...

Hand Tools Cabinet #2: Chisels on the Left, Markings on the right

02-07-2009 06:05 AM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Let me start by saying that the first part of this blog although posted earlier today, was actually made about a year ago, I just posted it today as a preceding part to the one you’re reading now… tried not to double post and ‘push’ other’s from the blog front page, so I waited half a day between 2 posts, although both were made ready at the same time. to continue the story were I left off, what I found most difficult with setting up the box was the box joints...

Hand Tools Cabinet #1: It all begins with a box

02-06-2009 11:12 PM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

I saw this design in a finewoodworking article, and really liked the design, and functionality of the piece, and decided to follow along. I did not use FWW plans, but created my own to fit my space, and needs, while keeping the general design, and concept of the FWW piece in mind. (I made mine, smaller, and shallower then FWW cabinet, also the interior is much different). This is basically a fingerjointed box that the doors are cut off from (to match grain) and hinged on a piano hinge. pre...

A small conference table - the build #7: Apply varnish to the top, and more on the legs and aprons

02-06-2009 03:10 PM by Al Navas | 4 comments »

From my blog: Where I was a while ago: Application of the Zinsser SealCoat™ (an alcohol-based, wax-free sanding sealer) went well. The secret: Apply very thin coats with a lint-free rag, wiping as you go. Wait a minimum of 2 hours, then sand with 400 grit sandpaper, until smooth to the touch – but don’t sand all the way to the wood. Repeat once. Today: 1) Time to apply the first coat of Target Coatings’ EM2000wvx waterborne alkyd varnish: Also today: 2) I fine-tuned the mor...

A small conference table - the build #6: Start applying the finish to the top, and set up legs and aprons

02-04-2009 03:56 PM by Al Navas | 2 comments »

I continue work. For the upcoming several days I will continue applying the finish to the top; today I started applying the Zinsser Seal Coat (shellac) to the underside. And work started on setting up for cutting tenons on the aprons, and mortises on the legs. From my blog: Sometimes, decisions are tough. For example, to start the work day today, I debated whether to start applying the Zinsser Seal Coat to the table top as it lay on the workbench, or take into the finishing room. The...

A small conference table - the build #3: The top is ready for sanding

01-29-2009 02:41 PM by Al Navas | 2 comments »

From my blog: Whew! Today was time to glue up the two halves of the table top. I trimmed each of the two halves on the table saw, using the crosscut sled. Leaving each half slightly over final length, I tackled the glue-up. Sandy came to the shop to lend a hand, as I did not want clamps moving and lumber falling to the floor. Three hours late I removed the clamps, scraped the dry glue, and completed preparations for sanding tomorrow. I will drop off this panel at my friend’s shop...

Sewing Center #3

01-26-2009 06:37 AM by robbi | 3 comments »

I feel like I hardly got anything done this weekend….going quite slow I am afraid. I have had some issues with my table saw so 1/2 of my time was spent trying to fix that. Sometimes I wish I had big buff muscles so I could wrestle with my tools better. Seems I spend a lot of time swearing and yelling at my tools. Anyway….on with the show here. I had to make the drawer slides which entailed cutting them from 3/4 oak and planing them down to 1/4. I have a band saw but it is ...
