Curved Front End Table #1: Case Construction

02-14-2016 11:27 PM by Guy Dunlap | 13 comments »

This is the start of a build for an end table. It will have curved front doors, a curved drawer, and the doors and drawer will have a book matched veneer. In this video, I start by pattern routing the front pieces, and then work on the case construction and the solid cherry book matched side panels. The case is put together with all mortise and tenon joinery, and even a few blind dovetails. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’ve got going on in...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #2: Apron Panels and a Start to the Legs

02-01-2016 04:12 PM by jeth | 5 comments »

Hello all, things have been deathly quiet on the first installment of this blog, which I started due to interest on the project I posted here. Having started, I should go on, so in this post I’ll show how the remaining veneered panels for the table aprons and the legs came together. Here is the substrate for one of the small side apron panels being planed up, with the thick re-sawn veneer that would be stuck to it. The substrate is a piece of Primavera and I did not back it with a ...

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #1: Veneered Panels/Framing the Top

02-01-2016 05:12 AM by jeth | 0 comments »

Hello all, I had a couple of peeps interested in seeing the process shots of the Cocobolo and Leopardwood table with drawer that I posted, so I thought I’ll blog it here split into a few parts so nobody has to scroll through it all in one go… You can see the finished project here. I don’t have a shot of the small Cocobolo board I was given that inspired this table before I started cutting it up but it was a couple of board feet. There was a lovely rich heartwood section d...

Humidors #4: Humidor # 2 - Learning from my mistakes (Bubinga and Walnut)

01-18-2016 04:08 PM by McPheel | 0 comments »

So after being so careful with my first humidor only to screw it up on the hinge install, I tried a few different techniques on some scrap for installing the hinges than decided to build another box. This time I decided I would do mitered corners with veneer splines for strength, since I didn’t want to mess around with edging. I had a beautiful piece of quarter sawn Bubinga that had been sitting on my rack for a few months now, begging to be turned into something. I decided it wanted...

Humidors #3: Humidor #1 Red Oak with Walnut veneer

01-17-2016 09:14 PM by McPheel | 1 comment »

In continuation with my previous post, I began this experience with a trip to Windsor Plywood to source the necessary materials. I ended up finding a nice piece of quarter sawn Spanish Cedar which was 4/4 by 6” – 8’ long, finished on 2 faces; a nice piece of quarter sawn Red Oak which was 4/4 by 6” – 6’ long, finished on all sides; A full sheet of birch plywood and a roll of Walnut veneer. I took a trip over to Lee Valley to get some quadrant hinges and als...

Humidors #2: First design concept

01-05-2016 03:16 PM by McPheel | 2 comments »

Time to plan out the design for my first Humidor. This will be a very basic box built to minimize cuts, make efficient use of lumber and hopefully hold a regular humidity. I started with a simple dimension that I wanted, I figured an internal box dimension of 12” by 8” would be a nice size to fit a beginners collection of cigars and cigar paraphernalia. I knew I wanted to have a depth of about 6” simply because I wanted to use the approx. factory width of the lumber I get...

Butterfly Dining Table #7: Cutting, Sizing and Framing the Top

12-18-2015 12:21 AM by Guy Dunlap | 9 comments »

In this video, I cut the three pieces that make up the top that totals 8’ when fully expanded. I also show how to install the butterfly hinges for the folding extension.Then I cut corners off and prepare the lumber for the solid wood frame along with making a solid “inlay” detail around the entire top. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To get updates of this build as I go along, please follow me on Instagram – https://instagram.com/guyswoodshop...

Art Deco TV Table #11: Put On A Happy Face: Another Round of Veneering

12-09-2015 06:21 PM by newTim | 3 comments »

More veneering. I actually have two veneer layers on the drawer fronts. This is not by design, rather by necessity. For various reasons the initial veneering was just not to the quality I wanted and there was some other visible damage. So the only option I could see was simply add another layer. But the question was how to do it? Many many chapters ago I showed how I veneered the inside and outside of the curved fronts using a combination of vacuum bags and clamps over a bending form ...

Butterfly Dining Table #6: Vacuum Press Veneering and Shop Sawn Veneer

11-30-2015 10:37 PM by Guy Dunlap | 7 comments »

This time I’m starting to make the top for the table. Since it’s going to have a solid wood frame around it, I need to use veneered panels. I show how to make shop sawn veneer and get it ready for veneering. Then I show how I glue it to the substrate, and how to use the vacuum bag to press it to the substrate. I had a lot of fun doing this as it is a new process for me. If you would like to learn more about the vacuum bag veneering process, I recommend going to Andy Pitts’...
