Split Top Roubo Bench Build #7: Fixing mistakes

03-15-2015 04:42 PM by ic3ss | 6 comments »

I forgot to update last week. I didn’t get much done because I was busy fixing a mistake. In episode 6 I showed a picture of the end tenon and the lead screw channel cut out. The weird thing is that the huge mortise cut into the end of the tenon. The mortise was too wide and I didn’t notice until last week I was thinking about it when I was in bed. That’s when I do my best thinking. I got up in the morning and checked the drawing and I was right. The drawing says the mortise...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #67: Wood Thickness Rant

03-10-2015 01:24 PM by jerrells | 4 comments »

In my woodworking, either scroll saw or just regular, I strive to be as accurate as possible, perhaps obsessive. One of the things that is driving me nuts lately is the inconsistence of wood thickness. I purchase wood from either the big box hardware store or the two woodworking store in town. What I find, in general, is that if you select two pieces of wood that are marked as the same thickness, they are not. Sometime even 1/16 of an inch difference. Now if I had even a bench planer this ...

Decorative Wood Experiments #1: Basket Weave using plywood edging

03-08-2015 02:01 AM by bobkberg | 3 comments »

Layout Sanded 1 coat of Sanding Sealer 2 coats of Sanding Sealer I should have written a blog on this with the plywood samples, but – Oh Well! This is a basket-weave effect using edge-cut strips of 1/2” Baltic birch plywood. The background is poplar, chosen specifically for its green tint for contrast. I think the lines made by the plywood layers adds to the “interruptions” where one strip appears to go under the other. It’s a stronger pattern than just...

Little Bathroom Remodel - Lumberjocks style #1: Countertop

03-07-2015 05:15 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 6 comments »

Howdy, I’m redoing the tiniest of tiny bathrooms. One entire wall is occupied by the tub. The other wall is taken up by the vanity and one of those gigantic mirrors. In between those small walls is the throne. If you are seated at the throne, there is just enough room to open the door. Yep… Tiny! I started on the countertop simply because I already knew exactly how I wanted it. Here are a few work in progress shots. I have already received some outstandi...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #6: Flattening and starting on the tail vise

03-05-2015 04:02 AM by ic3ss | 1 comment »

Last night I snuck out to the shop to take the clamps from the front top that I glued up earlier that day and used them to glue up two of the legs. I just had to get it done before bed. This morning I just let them sit as I had other stuff to do. I started with flattening the bottom surface of the front top. I had to run it across the jointer in halves like I did with the back top and I thought I did ok but I realized that after running the top surface through the planer, that surface was...

Building my version of the Essential Tool Chest #4: Lid is finished

03-04-2015 03:11 PM by johnstoneb | 3 comments »

I spent yesterday cutting mortises and tenons and fitting the lid. I had a stupid attack and forgot to allow for the lid dado depth when cutting the mortises. I ended with a mortise a 1/4 wider than the tenon. Once everything was glued up I was able to find a piece of scrap that fit the gap precisely. I just cut to length, a little glue and push them in, once they were sanded down I could only find one repair out of four and that one you needed to know where it was to see it. I got a g...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #5: . . . and more gluing and planing

03-03-2015 11:44 PM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

This morning I was out in the shop by 10am, eager to go. Motrin is a wonderful thing. I took the now full width back half out of the clamps and grabbed a glue scraper and went to work. I was able to only get a little bit of the glue runs off, so I switched to my jack plane. I had a bit of an alignment issue with these boards so I had some fairly high spots to flatten out. I did the bare minimum with the plane until I was worn out, it didn’t take long. Then I mustered all of my st...

funny bird house - Zwitscherkasten oak

03-03-2015 08:57 PM by Friedel1 | 2 comments »

The idea came from a neighbor. He had an old “bird feeder” very rot and yet functional. I offered him this bird box rebuild. I then built many of them:-)First of beech. Ha! Evil mistake! Well, at that point I knew even less about wood properties, but that beech is so bends I never expected.So I built one from the remnants of a corner seat in oak, 19 mm, finger-jointed. As always, not screwed, not nailed … .just dowelled. The Domino system by Festool is just great.A carpenter swears by Lamello...
