Shop stuff #130: Work on the shop finished.

07-16-2018 08:15 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Picking up where we left off last time. I build a torsion top to replace the old table and make some improvements to the function of the mitre saw. It also gives me a place for some future drawers. Then I get everything put back in place and the shop functional again. View on YouTube

Wood Magazine Glass Display case - an upscale adventure #2: It's all about the base ... and the top frame

07-07-2018 02:50 AM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

Since the article/plans are copyrighted, I will give you the dimensions I’ve been able to come up with on my spreadsheet. This is the upscale, and as we go through the build we’ll see how accurate everything is. For the bottom panel I’m using a luaun plywood. The rest will be red oak (vs. mahogany. While I LOVE to work with mahogany, my pocket book says red oak is more affordable). So. Cut the bottom to dimensions. Check. I had 2 boards of 3/4” red oak. One b...

Big cabinet for the new home #5: Working on the doors: Need opinion on reinforcements.

07-06-2018 12:13 PM by Lalen | 4 comments »

Changed the design back to bigger windows, and boy am I glad. Making 12 doors required 72 parts. Here is a dry fit of one upper and lower door. I used the Glass Panel Door router set from Sommerfeld’s Tools. I found his videos on youtube and found it very helpful and so I ordered his set and followed his process. Here is my question. Because my lower doors are fairly large (47”x16”) I am wondering if I may need to reinforce the corner joints. Here is a couple ...

Spring Bench #1: Building a bench around an 1800's wagon spring

06-30-2018 03:26 PM by Jim Jakosh | 18 comments »

My friend Leon Kytle in Idaho Falls gave me this old spring from a wagon seat from the 1800’s and asked me to design a bench around it and give him the plans so he could build one too around the other spring. I drew it up in Arizona with the bend up and down and decided it looked better with it bent down. I made us templates of the spring curve and gave him a drawing of how I was going to make it. But when I got home he called and said he thought the spring should be wider for stabil...

Big cabinet for the new home #4: Big stuff is done, DIY bun feet.

06-22-2018 10:38 AM by Lalen | 0 comments »

All that remains is doors and drawer fronts! Here is the current status. Sorry its a bit dark, but its a black cabinet and I still need to get some lights added to the new house. I included my 8’ ladder for scale. Total storage capacity is about 96 cubic feet. The 3 cabinets were each 8’ high by 34” wide, 19.5” deep outside dimensions. I made the base 5.5” high and inset 3/4” to clear the baseboard then the crown molding added another coup...

Mission-style mahogany desk #3: Front apron mortises done, and an assembly of the frame

06-20-2018 02:41 AM by Woodbutchery | 6 comments »

The front apron mortises are complete, and then a fit of the whole frame. I have a few tenons to adjust, some research and eventual installation of drawer frames, and a lot of practice on dovetail joinery before I make the drawers. Really happy with the way this is coming together. Happy to hear comments, as always. Thanks for looking.

Split Top Roubo Bench From Southern Yellow Pine, Part 1

06-08-2018 06:36 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I built this Split top roubo style woodworking bench out of affordable lumber from the home center. The benchcrafted tail vise and leg vise were not so affordable but definitely worth the investment. This work bench is solid, heavy and great for hand tool woodworking. I used the benchcrafted plans as a guide but had to change some dimensions since i used dimensional southern yellow pine from the home center. I also used Popular woodworking magazine’s issue #191 for a guide to cut the do...

Bottled sawdust

05-29-2018 10:02 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 6 comments »

Boys and girls, I just finished watching another one of those videos where the author advises the use of sawdust in the glue squeeze out to create that seamless join especially when you finish up using a zig saw instead of the zag saw… GREAT TIP! Now if you are like me, there is never enough time to finish clamping before the glue starts to set, let alone go foraging for enough sawdust to mix into the squeeze out/gaps… and sometimes I have craters. If you are a clean freak… OOPS, the s...
