Hi, Just read about this mobile woodshop. I think this is a great idea to keep kids engage and keep interest in the trade alive in the younger generation. This is a great idea. http://willieswoodshop.com/ Insert from his website… Welcome to Willie’s Woodshop Since 1985, Stephen Willner (Willie) has been working in a classroom and credentialed by state of California , teaching basic woodworking skills to children. He is now moving to his classroom to a converted ...
Here goes…. Traditional work benches (roubo for example) are out dated. I know, heresy. But it’s true The reason they made those crazy over sized legs and joints was because they didnt have sheetgoods back then and they needed to over build them to deal with the lateral and horizontal force they experienced. It is my opinion that pine 2×6’s and 3/4 ply MORE than cover any of the structural needs of a work bench. So the next big argument FOR traditional w...
I am finally working on this project again and ran into another problem. You can find out how I got this far from blogs I posted earlier. Last time I showed how I set up guides to cutting the inlay banding grooves. I eventually got all the inlay banding installed, but when I went to sand it flush with the veneer I found I could feel that the resulting surface was uneven. If I could feel it, imagine how bad it was going to look finished! (Keep in mind my hands are trained to feel irregula...

We have been hired to make a dining room table from a 30’s model and slide it on the Biedermeier side. This is not our usual traditional furniture making but it is also a nice change in the usual styles we work on. We started with a simple design to show the overall idea Brick laid apron in pine for a light top Poplar “plaque to glue under the top. it will host a metal plate to bolt the lower part to the top The base is made out of beech, for an heav...
Next step is to create two veneered panels for the top. I believe that a single large, unbroken top would look a little better but I really like the material that I have on hand and I don’t trust my ability to get an invisible seam at the center. So I will feature a break rather than make a poor job of hiding it. I do not have a large vacuum press system, so I will use cauls and clamps instead. I will use two 2’x4’ MDF sections to make a veneer sandwich. I...
I have a high school fine arts and academic competition coming up this spring and I decided to build a music stand and enter it into the woodworking category. Right now I am in the planning stage. I want to use a similar design to the Graham Nash music stand made by Blake(http://lumberjocks.com/Blake) . I am considering using walnut veneer for the panels and hard maple for the frame around it. I have been working on it with SketchUp. I am hoping to create a stand that is height-adjustable but...
