Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #3: Preparing Lamination Strips

1622 days ago by sras | 9 comments »

There are three curved parts in each stool. These are formed by gluing up thin strips to create a thicker laminated part. The three parts are: 1. Seat Back – 7/8” thick (formed with 5 or 6 strips)2. Back Rest – 7/8” thick (formed with 5 or 6 strips)3. Slats – 3/8” thick (formed with 3 or 4 strips) (5 per stool) As I plan the construction, I start to realize that I have 6 stools with 7 curved parts each. That works out to 42 glue ups. Each one requires...

Work bench #1: Preparing and gluing the top.

1622 days ago by Dean10 | 11 comments »

Right now I’m making a bench for woodworking this summer. Ive started with the top. To begin, I salvaged wood from my schools old gym floor (Hard rock maple, absolutely freeee, because i have friends in high places :D), next, i took out all the nails and trimmed up the end grain. Then my instructure helped me rip off the grove and tongue joints from the flooring, and I planed it to nice looking peices of lumber. Tonight me and him glued up 1 of 3 segments of the table, which i’ll ...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #2: Begin Rough Cutting

1625 days ago by sras | 10 comments »

Back in early November, I went to my favorite lumber yard and started looking at what kind of wood to use. I was interested in mahogany, but wanted to check out my options. They had some very nice ribbon mahogany. I went home and gave it some more thought. The next weekend, I made the plunge. I had only one problem, I kept seeing pieces that looked too nice to pass up! I ended up with way more than I needed for this project. I can rationalize it that I saved gas by not making an extra ...

New Yankee Blanket Chest #3: My first Mortise & Tenon!

1625 days ago by HungryTermite | 8 comments »

Well, after taking all my rough cut boards and ripping them to final width and crosscutting them to final length on the tablesaw, and spending what seemed like hours (because it probably was) laying out all the cuts on all the pieces … I fired up my new mortising router jig … And cut my first mortises in all the stiles of the chest! I then went over to the tablesaw with a Dado head and started to mill my 1st tenons and all the grooves for the solid panels: Things went ...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #1: Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project

1626 days ago by sras | 19 comments »

Well, here we go. I have been working on the design and preparation of this project for 3 years. The final prototype was just completed. This is my second prototype. The first one was a quick (that is a relative term) mock up to see if I had the size correct. I built this out of scrap 2×4s and screws. Pieces were only roughly shaped. After building this, we determined that it was about a half inch too tall. The second prototype was built as a prelude to actual construction....

New Yankee Blanket Chest #2: Rough cutting

1626 days ago by HungryTermite | 3 comments »

I spent some time rough cutting all the stock for the blanket chest and then laying it all out to acclimate for a little while. I still can’t get over how much easier it is with the tablesaw. All the pieces are the exact same width and length! I know it’s not that big a deal but I’ve never tried a project which required ripping stock before so I was pretty giddy. Here are some progress shots:

1626 days ago by Requiem | 2 comments »

G’day everyone, I really would like to thank everyone that posted a comment on my very first blog. I was really overwhelmed by the response of friendship and good hearted people that offered to help me if I needed it which was displayed on Lumberjocks community. I also wanted thank Svaabeck for helping me get my finger out. I am sorry it has taken so long to post another entry but I was taken in by woodworking, once I received my Incra gear and had set it up I got sucked into it. I unders...

Big wood find #5: The base comes together

1628 days ago by rtb | 6 comments »

I probably should have updated this about a week ago but the best laid plans of mice….etc . Drilling 5/8 holes through 1 in of white oak 3 in. cherry and an additional 1 in. of red oak is not something that you can whip out in 45 seconds. You are constantly removing the bit to clear the hole of the waste and there are many holes in this base. This assembly is still quite rough and there will be a lot of sanding and planning once its all together. As the above picture sh...
