American Hanging Cupboard #3: Cutting the tenons - What NOT to do...

10-30-2009 06:25 PM by Mark D. | 3 comments »

So last night I began cutting the tenons on the table saw. Now before everyone tells me I’m lucky to still have my fingers or flames me for posting these pics, here’s a disclaimer. DO NOT use a table saw without the use of a throat plate. Disastrous things CAN and likely WILL happen… (See Also: Standard disclaimer “Blade Guard Removed for Clarity”) That being said… I’ve never had problems making cuts with the dado stack in the tablesaw without ...

The Slowest Farm Shop #4: The slowest summer ever? But there are projects...

07-06-2009 08:28 PM by Will Mego | 4 comments »

So like many here, this summer has been one of hardship, and little work, and lots of stress. But as outlined earlier, that’s why this blog is titled the way it is. This spring didn’t see as many trees fall as I figured would, so not as much work there. One old box elder did take a plunge…right into the fork of a large mulberry tree, splitting it about 10 ft….but still 10ft off the ground….and over a fence right into the neighbor’s garden…so that w...

Cherry Nightstand #1: Introduction and Design

02-22-2014 04:25 PM by Todd | 0 comments »

I’m in the process of designing and building a cherry nightstand to match our bedroom suite. I’m going to try and preserve the style of the furniture while remaining within my skill level. I’m actually pretty far into the build now and since I’ve taken some pictures along the way I thought I would blog the process. I’ll try to post an entry for each step as time permits. The design of the nightstand took into account the style of our current bedroom suite i...

Cherry Nightstand #2: Acquiring, sorting, and preparing wood

02-22-2014 04:43 PM by Todd | 1 comment »

I’m very fortunate to have a sawyer close by that caters specifically to hobbyists. These are very knowledgable and nice folks. Shameless plug: Hobby Hardwood Alabama Here is a photo of the first batch of rough sawn cherry I chose: I recently reconfigured and upgraded my dust collector http://lumberjocks.com/projects/95715 which worked out great because I jointed and planed most of this wood in preparation for this build. This picture shows how well the thien baffle worked:...

Kitchen Cabinet Job #1: Carcases

12-19-2009 08:30 AM by jackd942 | 7 comments »

I’ve actually made two posts over at my website www.deltawoodworks.com on this job, but I think I’ll just consolidate those first two into this single post here. I was asked by my family to make my grandmother a set of cabinets for the newly constructed addition to my aunt’s house that she would be moving into. In talking to them, we decided to use prefinished plywood for the carcases and drawers with oak ply skins and frame/flat panel doors. After finishing up with my regul...

Architrave molding

08-21-2013 09:35 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

I’ve been remodeling the house and thought I’d just post a few pictures of how I make my architrave moldings. I don’t know how they are really made. This is just a solution I came up with with the bits I had in the drawer. It starts off with four parts that I sandwich together. The top two parts are made with a simple ogee bit, the cove is made with a raised panel bit, and the bottom part is just a thin strip of wood. Along with that I made some fluted molding for the sides....

Roubo from a weed, or how I have come to hate red oak

01-20-2011 05:20 PM by Jon Spelbring | 3 comments »

Like many jocks out there, I’m in the process of building a new workbench. It will be pretty close to the Roubo that Chris Schwarz built, but sadly, my top will not be made out of pretty (if punky) cherry. No, I was fortunate(?) to have a supply of very thick red oak planks to work with. The top is made up of 3 pieces at 7.5” wide by 4” thick by 7’ long. It’s a beast! The legs are from the same stock, trimmed to 3”x5”. I’ve finished cutt...

Novel Bookshelf- drawing in sketchup

02-17-2010 12:21 AM by Adam Weis | 1 comment »

This is a piece I plan to build over the next few months to use as a show piece in craft fairs and possibly to put in a gallery. I have lots of connections in the art world so hopefully I can find a home for it.
