Half scale Bombe # 3

03-09-2012 01:13 PM by KPW | 4 comments »

Got some more pics of the progress on the chest. Draw bottoms,draw sides and backs. Started on the feet. I cut them on my trusty old craftsman jig saw. The curves were too tight to do it on the band saw. I,ll probably go through 6 or 7 blanks before I get 4 that I like. Ball and claw in this scale is tuff. Not giving up yet but may have to go with just a simple cabriolet foot. Wish me luck.

Hello World ! (a restoration job) #1: Dresser restoration part 1

03-09-2012 07:11 AM by raydizzle | 1 comment »

So this is my first blog post on this site, and first woodworking project since high school (which I graduated in 2008). I quit college to pursue a bigger passion of mine, which was woodworking. I absolutely loved my wood shop classes in high school. And after going through a couple years or college, I decided that web design was not something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Sitting behind a desk and computer screen all day writing out code, fixing problems for websites that never see...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #1: Top&Legs Jointed, Starting to layout the Wooden Screws.

02-29-2012 03:52 PM by Mauricio | 11 comments »

A while black I posed a forum topic asking for folks advise on how to use this piece of wood for a workbench. A cabinet maker I bought my band saw from gave it to me for free. It was made from two slabs from a green oak tree so it cupped pretty bad. It had been used as a table for a restaurant. After assimilating everyone’s advice I decided I would cut out the piths, re-glue the top and use it to make a French workbench like Roy Underhill does in one of his shows. I love the splayed...

Half scale Bombe Jewelry Box #1: First time Bombe

02-26-2012 05:26 PM by KPW | 7 comments »

Here are some prelim. pics of a 1/2 scale Bombe chest I’m attempting. I’m using the Fine Woodworking plan that’s in the Period Furniture book by Taunton Press. Had to take the 1/6th drawing and have it blown up to 1/2 scale by a local print shop. Cost $8. What a deal ! Made alot of mistakes so I’m glad I’m trying it out as a smaller version before attemting one full scale with expensive Lumber. I’ll post more pics as I go.

Laziness

My old (like 50 years old) Craftsman compressor gave up the ghost last week. So I bought a passable one from Northern Tools and decided it was time to wire my shop for air.I took my old air hose and a bunch of T’s and connectors and brackets and ran hose around the shop I will soon have air within arms reach throughout the shop. I’ll take pictures when I’m done.But right now I’m feeling pretty good about it. Lee

New Life for a Columbian Woodworking Vise #1: Columbian Woodworking Vise Find

02-18-2012 07:09 PM by hhhopks | 3 comments »

I just got back from a woodworking tool estate sale. There were many good buys. I would of purchase a lot more but ran out of money. I spotted this woodworking vise and noticed that it is a quick release. I already got an old vice for the workbench that I am currently building, but it is not a quick release. I thought I would give it a go. I am taking a chance in buying a vise that wouldn’t turn. For $25.00, I don’t think it is much of a gamble. Here’s what I have foun...

Pennsylvania Spice Box for Mom #1: Milling Wood and Cutting Parts

02-16-2012 08:21 PM by SPHinTampa | 4 comments »

Like most of you out there, I think my mother is the most amazing woman on the planet, and I wanted to find a way to express that to her. My mom’s birthday is on January 2nd, I feel very bad that she always seems to get short changed on the birthday celebration because everyone is tired from Xmas and New Years. I wanted to give her a very personal present this year to show how important she is too me. I was considering a jewelery box and when I saw this project in FWW, I decided ...

3 start rope with a 15' radi.

02-15-2012 05:41 PM by grosa | 3 comments »

Has anyone ever done a rope turning on a 15” or more radius ? I have been thinking about this for months. It can’t be done on the legacy mill. I don’t know if there is any other way other than carving it by hand. Do any of you talented wood workers know of a way to do this in a repeatable way ?

Dafting table

02-10-2012 03:09 AM by DonR | 1 comment »

a week ago I won a Hamilton Drafting table in a surplus auction from my local university, since then I have been sanding my hands off to re finish it. The biggest challenge has been the drawing surface. it had been used in a machine shop and had many straight line cuts in it as well as a number of pits and chips from machined metal parts. I have now done three applications of joint compound to fill these cuts and dips and am happy with the surface. I have sanded it down to a 320 grit and will...
