Conference table / work bench #2: Construction Details

09-04-2007 03:55 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 14 comments »

I thought I would include a few more photos, showing the construction details. I’m not sure why I always end up with the photos in reverse order, but maybe you should start from the bottom! Completed top, waiting for the edge shaping and butterflies. My stepson, Evan, inspecting our work. Lee and Evan installing 1/8" thick, Wenge edge banding. The underside, fitted and stained. The holes allow attaching the top to the frame. Evan measuring for the stainless inserts...

I haven't died ...

08-29-2007 07:57 PM by Obi | 10 comments »

Been busy making all sorts of things, and as they get finished I’ll post them. Recently I realized that my sled was 1/16th inch out of square. Thinking that it was the blade i made sure it was perfectly square to the fence. After making sure the fence was quare, i measured the sled and realized that 1/16th of an inch can make a horrific difference on how things glue up. So i went to work on a new sled. The old sled (posted) was a beginners sled, and needed improvement. No wonder I can m...

Changing Table/Dresser #2: More Detailed SketchUp Drawings

08-27-2007 04:25 AM by chambbj | 2 comments »

I’ve updated my SketchUp drawings; still no dust panels, shelves, or door. Clicking on any photo should take you to it’s Flickr page, with higher resolutions if it’s too hard to see some of the detail here. Here’s an exploded view of the current plan, to reveal some of the internal blocking and joinery plans. The current thought is to use mostly 4/4 Lyptus, except on the back and drawer bottoms, where I’ll use plywood. Dimensioned drawing of the divid...

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...
