I have one more apron to cut out on the scroll saw. So tedious, hard for me to sit for long and use the saw. Few minutes at a time. Still I got lucky again. I was going out to visit my Mom’s grave today and right across from the cemetary along side the road was a hugh red oak that had just been dropped. I stopped talked with Mom for a minute then took off for city hall a the DPW. My cousin works for the town DPW and he was there working on something on the work bench. I asked him where...
The last couple of days, I’ve been working on the tabletop. I mortised out the breadboards, & cut the tenons. I kind of fell for the cloud lift theme, so I incorporated into the top. You might want to call this a sideways cloud lift. I decided to try something from the latest issue of Fine Woodworking, They call it draw bored pegging on the breadboards. This is something I’ve never tried before, so we’ll see what happens. Check out my latest Video, hope you ...
The whole reason I joined Lumberjocks was because I wanted to get some information about the Thorsen Table Challenge. After spending countless hours here I decided I better at least attempt a table. SWMBO said that I could only build a table if the wood choice matched the bedroom furniture (The Wife’s Dresser). So sorry Obi, but it is going to be made out of pine. I decided to add some Cedar for a contrasting wood Just to do something different I went with a brick laid patt...
One of my first ideas for this challenge was to make a “green” table – as in recycled, not painted. After weeks of pondering, and ultimately ignoring the problem of where to begin, and more importantly, what to use, I remembered that I had this door sitting in my shed. It may have been original to the house, but has been collecting dust for the past 5 or so years since we bought the house and replaced the exterior doors – this one had dog door cut out of it and was ...
I had this idea… Dick lit a fire Here are a couple tables I made this morning – without glue or any mechanical fasteners! (or any milling or cutting, just used some mahogany I had on hand… coming soon.... the real work in progress!
... literally and figuratively. If you’ve been following the weather (or live in the northeast) you are no doubt aware of all the rain and flooding we’re dealing with this week. There was a landslide almost in my backyard closing a state highway. Five days later, and it’s still closed. A clean up crew came monday (while schools were closed and businesses were shut down) and attempted what clean up they could manage before instability threated them… thus, the clean u...
Providere, a Work In Process Well I finished roughing out a shape of the last of four legs last night with the drawknife, and I thought I would post a picture of where the ‘in the process’ of Providere now stands. 1) Cherry backsplash, needs to enter into it’s hand sanding phase, starting with #120 grit….and ending with some slurpies…. 2) Table top, needs to be worked some more on sides with a timber slick to get a better trueness…. 3) End board...
My Walnut board was 6 3/4” wide, but it was dished a little, so I ripped it in half, & joined it in 4 sections for the top, I also glued some Ash to the edges. The Top clamped up.Now I have to go out, & start with the breadboard ends for the Tabletop. This is one of the Shelves, using my new Irwin Clamps
Today I removed a little excess weight with my router. More to come in the future.
Well this is the second time I’ve wrote this I tried to slip in a picture and ended up losing my whole blog. Oh well, what else have I got to do, it ain’t the first time. To the blog: I’ve spent the better part of two days trying to track down all the parts to my blower/vac I’m talking 200 mph of sucking and blowing power ow, ow, ow, ow, more power (tim the tool man). I needed it because I’ve got about 6-8 inches of saw dust and chips from all the planing and j...
