How I do inlays

05-23-2010 02:34 PM by tyskkvinna | 10 comments »

I had a lot of response on this subject, and finally got around to doing a blog discussing the entire process. So this is the machine that I use. It is a Haas SR-100 sheet router. This could be done with any CNC router/mill, really, this is just what I have. This is the tooling that I use – V-Cutters from Hersaf. I did a lot of research into v-cutters, because I do a lot of engraving. I was told by several people that Hersaf is the best. I have a set of them and I have to agre...

How to Build a Sofa/Couch #2: Springs in the platform

05-23-2010 08:30 AM by dakremer | 12 comments »

How to Build a Sofa/Couch #1: Arm Rests

05-22-2010 11:59 PM by dakremer | 8 comments »

This is all my own design, and besides looking at a few pics on the internet, this is all my OWN method of doing it. That being said – for any of you professional sofa builders out there, I am sorry if I’m not d...

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, #7 Hey, ladies and gents! Last week, on the lowboy project, we had shaped one leg and had gone through the initial shaping, step by step. http://i927.photobucket.com/albums/ad116/woodwokerplus/Charles%205/compleatedfett.jpg After working and re-working the legs to be nearly finished, I find in this week’s webisode that I should have left the area, from the knees up, roughed in (as Charles said in an earlier webisode), due to the upcoming st...
