Bowling Alley Workbench #9: The Top #1: Tip, Tap, Top

07-21-2009 04:13 PM by PurpLev | 15 comments »

finally getting to work on the actual bowling alley part of the “bowling alley workbench”, although I really found Damian’s comment on a previous installment entertaining, and might refer to it from now as the “Alley Workbench”...lol. The top as can be seen in the sketchup model is made of 6 different components: Main Slab (nails and all), Dog holes strip, buffer strip, 2 skirts (front and back) and a breadboard End Cap. In reality this will change slightly...

July, and it was pouring rain here in Boston, MA. for the past week. go figure. (although today it cleared out which is really nice). but enough about the weather (as if this will stop us). After completing the basic construction for the leg ends last installment. It was now the time to connect those with rails. The rails are 45” long with 2 1/2” tenon sticking on each side (to a total length of 50” – do the math). They are made of 2 2×4 that were jointed/plane...

Bowling Alley Workbench #4: Look at them Legs...

06-29-2009 02:06 AM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

Picking up where I last left off (each leg glued, and hand planed to clean out the glue lines), It was now time to get some assembly done. First thing First – gotta trim all legs to same length/height since during glue up some boards decided to move about. I decided to use a reference point that I could use on all legs that would match them all up – since different legs had different boards that moved around – the only reference point that I could use (and the best one of...

Shaker Dvd cabinet sketchup revision

06-24-2009 06:06 PM by skeeter | 0 comments »

After so many of my fellow lumberjocks had so many helpful bits of advice about my new glass door cabinet design, I decided to go back to the “drawing board.” We decided to shrink the cabinet down to 50 so I could stay in the 2×4 rule. I think it made the cabinets proportions better. We also decided to go with raised panels on the bottom doors. I didn’t draw it but the cabinet will have a back like my previous project. I think this gives your pieces a quality that no p...

The 4th and 5th installment in the Arts and Crafts Panel Bed video series has been released! If you are intimidated by the through mortise and tenon joint, you should check out the latest videos. I’ll show you a method to make perfectly sized and spaced mortises without a mortising machine or router. For measured drawings and in-process pictures, you can visit the project page at Eagle Lake Woodworking:http://www.eaglelakewoodworking.com/post/Arts-and-Crafts-Bed-Stickley-Panel-Be...

There's A Table in There Somewhere! #5: Cutting the Apron Tenons

06-06-2009 01:09 AM by CedarFreakCarl | 4 comments »

Once the mortises have been cut in the legs, it’s time to cut the tenons on the aprons. After cutting the apron stock to the correct length and measuring the depth of the mortise we’ll cut the shoulders of the tenon joint on the table saw. These aprons are 3/4” thick, therefore the tenon should be 1/4”. Using the Kreg miter gauge, I’ll carefully saw the shoulders. I should have used a zero clearance insert, but was too lazy to make another, so I just used the oe...

Roubo #1: Wherein our protagonist drinks the crazy juice, and decides to use 4/4 lumber.

03-08-2009 04:19 AM by Jon3 | 4 comments »

So brief background is that about a 18 months ago, I bought a load of lumber off ebay. While there, I ended up also buying 350 BF of flatsawn white ash for $100. I figured, even if it ends up being ‘test’ pieces and shop projects, it would still be worth it. Fast forward to recently, and I’ve been planning to build a new bench, and I’ve pretty much decided on a Roubo. I picked up the lovely Benchcrafted tail/wagon vise, a german bench screw, and some holdfasts. ...

First mortise/tenon #2: Second mortise tenon try

03-03-2009 11:22 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 9 comments »

The first mortise/tenon was made with junk pine. Someone said that hardwood might give me better results so, I grabbed a couple of pieces of oak and went to work. Here’s the results. I guess practice makes perfect. I should do a half dozen more but I want to make a cabinet with two doors for my sister. Today I jointed, cut, and planed the wood. Next is to take it and make mortises for the front frame. This is all new territory for me.

First mortise/tenon #1: Practice mortise and tenon joint

03-02-2009 09:08 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 6 comments »

Well, After making a small jig for my drill press and a small simple sled for my table saw I have produced my first mortise and tenon joint using a couple of pieces of scrap pine. I drilled the mortise and cut the tenon on my TS then cleaned up both with a chisel. Not too bad for a first try I think. It is snug. I need to get a new blad for my table saw. I think it bends a little bit. It is an inexpensive blade and thin. Anyone else think that this can cause issues? I think I’d get a st...
