Project Preview

My next project is ambitious! Here’s an in-progress shot of the back of a mission style desk made of red oak. The kicker? The middle of the desk tilts up to become a drafting table with ratcheting positions! Skill I’m learning this project? Doweling pieces together. (Though this will mostly be pocketholes) structure is complete. Currently working on sanding, then finishing. Definitely looking for advice on finishing red oak. This will be a heavy-use piece, so the finish need...

Guess Who's Back In The Shop?? Me!!

11-27-2010 12:16 AM by matt garcia | 23 comments »

Man it really feels good to get out in the cool weather, and continue where I left off last year before my surgury! Well I cleaned up a little bit, soaked my WWII to remove the walnut pitch from the last woodworking project, and got back to work. I didn’t know if I would ever be able to stand again. When I got out of the hospital, and went back to work it was hard to stand, even for a few minutes. See the surgeons remove the vein from your right leg in order to do the bypass. My ...

The New Workbench #1: Description of Bench

11-26-2010 07:42 PM by therookie | 6 comments »

So I started getting into woodworking and bought a hand plane. So as soon as I got home I wanted to use it, so I put a peice of wood in my vise and started planeing. Five minutes later, my bench was four feet farther forward than it originally started. So I moved it back and kept going. Well I have done that for the past year and a half, and have decided enough is enough. So while I was in school I designed a Work Bench. Here are the specs on the bench:1. The bench is four feet deep, six feet...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #2: Cutting and Measuring

11-18-2010 07:12 AM by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

In this tutorial I’ll be making three redwood wine box displays. Two will be 12” x 12” x 3”, the other will be 10” x 10” x 2 1/4”. These are the two most common sizes I make, the 12” square box will hold ~125 wine corks, where as the 10” version will hold ~80. It doesn’t look like that many will fit in there, but I promise you they will.Before we begin, I want to mention that these tutorials will be available on my photography sit...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #1: Intro

11-18-2010 06:08 AM by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

To my amazement there has been a lot of inquiries into how I make my wine cork displays. These questions inspired me to create a series of blog/tutorials to help explain my process. They will probably go into far more detail than most of you “master woodworkers” care to see, but I’m hoping it will help those new to woodworking. I remember how valuable some of the more detailed tutorials where to me when I first started, and still are for that matter. The design is one ...

Book Bench #1: The Project & The Legs (profiles)

11-17-2010 07:31 PM by spunwood | 4 comments »

The Project In Mid/Late September a friend of ours mentioned to Stephanie that she was looking for something like a window seat with book shelves/storage…sans window. I jumped at the opportunity to try my hand. I had a plan by William Draper, a PA craftsman from an August 1996 edition of American Woodworker, pg. 32 (off of google). I had been really wanting to try my hand at the bench. I loved the profile, the simple style, and the chance to hone basic skills such as mortise &...

I need your help.

11-14-2010 06:39 PM by nobuckle | 9 comments »

Okay, things are coming along with the router table project. The last thing that I worked on was making the insert plate for the router. I opted to make one because I don’t have the money to spend on a manufactured one. Besides, I hade some 1/4” aluminum plate that a friend gave me which worked out really well. Here is where I need your input. I need to know if I should make the diameter of the through hole the same size as the diameter of my largest router bit, in this case ...

Workshop Upgrades #3: Ridgid 4511 router table

11-14-2010 02:47 AM by jcwalleye | 5 comments »

Once I got the fence upgraded as described in the second blog of this series it was time to get the router table built. Here are some pictures of the granite table added as a right wing to the Ridgid 4511 table saw. Glued up 2” of mdf and laminated top and bottom with leftovers from a local cabinet shop. OK, it’s only as heavy as granite. Here the laminated slab is ready for cutting dados for the mitre and t-tracks. Here are reference lines on masking tape for aligning the insert tem...
