My portion being the 7 lighter colored boards on the left. Let the bench begin! Starting to shape up , i should mention the finish on these boards was fantastic , they had warped some but the faces were nearly flat and already smoothed making it much less work to joint flat surfaces. The smaller boards we...

Finishing Tips #6: Homemade Blotch Control Instructions

Many people have contacted me concerning the specific mixing instructions to make homemade blotch control and specifics as to its application. So here they are. Mixing instructions Glue size is most commonly made of a watered-down, water-based, PVA adhesive. If you do plan to make your own, try something on the order of 10 parts (or a little less) water to one part Gorilla White Wood Glue. The ratios may vary with species and porosity of the wood. Use: Distilled Water (Can be pur...

Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #1: Concept and leg assembly

02-06-2015 05:57 AM by brianb6603 | 3 comments »

ConceptI have been needing a proper workbench for a while. The top of my table saw and fold up extension have been the only spot to use. I would love to have a large proper workbench but my shop is just too small for a full size bench. I have been looking at benches in Lumberjocks and marking some for reference. shipwright had come up with some excellent ideas. His concept for the Short Block V8 is a low cost way for a beginner to get a strong, stable small workbench using tools that many b...

Harvey Ellis Nightstand #1: Intro

02-02-2015 03:32 PM by DBrown52 | 6 comments »

My wife and I will soon start building our dream home in the country. When it’s completed, we’ll be absent both quality furniture to fill it and spare cash to buy any. It’s quite the dilemma. Fortunately, she likes the Stickley/Craftsman style and I have a nice stack of cherry. The plan is for me to build a bedroom set to replace our current collection of hand-me-downs and discount pieces from the meatball place. We did some looking and both agreed that we liked the H...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #6: Turned Legs and Base Joinery

02-01-2015 05:50 AM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

I start out with some 12/4 walnut, and cut 4 legs, making sure I use rift sawn lumber. Using a turning that I made for a template, I turn all 4 legs. Then I start on the joinery. This is traditional mortise and tenon joinery throughout, and I show an easy way to get nice tight fitting tenons. The front bottom rail uses a double tenon while the top uses a dovetail to hold everything together. The most unusual thing in this video is that there a shot where you can almost see me smile!
