Designing the Thien Baffle in Sketchup

07-27-2014 02:37 AM by Sk1pp3r | 1 comment »

I am just posting my journey for my upgrades to the Harbor Freight Dust collector I got. I have been using it stock except for the wynn filter cartridge and have been happy with it so far, however I have been getting some leaks and will smell the wood dust coming from the collector after cutting items. So I figured if I am going to seal the leaks, I better just build a whole new cart and add a Thien Separator. The first post here is detailing the Thien Separator. I went over to his we...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #5: Triumphal Finish, A Long Entry

07-24-2014 12:04 AM by CharlesA | 1 comment »

My nephew didn’t want any more pics to go up until he had a chance to show it to his mother and grandmother (my sister), so I haven’t posted any update. However, since today was return to home day, all may be revealed. After finishing the main box, he cut and glued four cleats to the underside of the top. He clamped up the front and back cleats first, and then snuck up on the length of side cleats. They fit perfectly. I guess I didn’t take any pictures of him cuttin...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #4: Learning some more new skills, completing the main box

07-21-2014 12:40 PM by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I haven’t been taking as many pictures the last bit, but we’ve made a lot of progress. We we neared the completion of the main box, we needed to make some bevels on the bottom trim. Rather than resort to the router, we went for the more hand finished look, making the bevels with a plane.They came out really well, and after assembly, he also beveled the corners as you’ll see below. It all turned out very nice. Next came the glue up of the bottom trim pieces and the inst...

The Board, Pt. ll

07-20-2014 06:22 PM by Gene Howe | 22 comments »

Well, after two power outages that caused the loss of the last two attempts, I think I’ve got this “save” thing down. We left off last time with a admonition to make a detailed plan of the proposed final project for which the board we are about to make will be used. The next step is to select the lumber with which to make the board. This is a major step. First the species is to be determined. MDF is out! As is plywood. Rose wood is nice and so is bird’s eye maple...

Wegner inspired dining chair #3: Shaping the back seat

07-15-2014 09:19 PM by kaerlighedsbamsen | 13 comments »

Feeling that a lot of uncertainties have been cleared away in my last post it is now time to take on the most challenging part of the project: shaping the back rest. This is where tings are getting a bit complicated. Shapes in 3d is difficult to visualize and shaping takes a long time. Having done a series of sketches i had a semi vague idea where i wanted to end:In order to work fast i decided to start using mdf for the first tests. Shaping in a combination of freehand and using divide...

The Board. A Tongue In Cheek Essay...... With Pictures Part l

07-14-2014 11:21 AM by Gene Howe | 31 comments »

Recently, there was a bit of concern expressed regarding a board that was posted as a project. it got me to thinking (a rare occurrence) that some folks might not understand or appreciate the dedication, skill and work that is involved in the making of a board. Hence this blog/tutorial. First, lets define the term for those not familiar with boards. Most authorities agree that a board is a flat slab of wood or other material for some specific purpose. For our purposes, we’ll limit th...

Wegner inspired dining chair #1: Getting inspired & first test

07-10-2014 08:26 PM by kaerlighedsbamsen | 6 comments »

I have always admired wegners furniture. Especially his chairs. They are so “final” designs. Nothing to improve, nothing to remove. Just right. For a long time a have known that one day i wanted to build something in his style. But as simple they look his furniture is nothing but simple to make. And i felt that i needed a certain level of skill to give it a try. The past two years i have built a lot of projects and tried to raise the difficult level a little each time.Last week...
