Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #1: Getting Started - Design and SketchUp model

07-25-2017 10:53 PM by EarlS | 3 comments »

My youngest daughter asked for a computer desk for her 17th birthday. Well, it was last week so I’m already behind. She wanted something that had Japanese influences. After looking at countless pictures over the past several months I was looking at a side table on Kevin Rodel’s website and she saw it and immediately decided that was the look she wanted. The table is described as a “contemporary Asian inspired Arts and Crafts with roots in several old masters”. ...

5$ Garage Sale Treasure-A refurbished Miter Trimmer

07-18-2017 09:54 PM by Greg | 3 comments »

Pretty stoked to run across a nice old miter trimmer that a guy was selling at a garage sell this past weekend. I asked him how much and he first said, ”$10” then changed his mind and said, “Give me 5$.” I said, “SOLD!” I brought it home and piece of scrap cherry to try it out. I sliced off a 45° angle with an effortless slice and could not stop grinning at my luck. I have always wanted one but never could justify the price every time I create a so...

Hand Tool Shootout | Preparing Rough Sawn Lumber by Hand vs. the Machines

05-20-2017 06:06 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

My usual routine is somewhat hybrid, I typically do the bulk of the removal of material with the jointer and planer, then square it up at my cross cut sled, and finally remove the scallops from the planer with a smoothing plane, and shoot the ends to final dimensions to fit. But for the purpose of demonstration, I prepared these two overly dry (20 years in a barn) air dried Walnut by hand and then with my machines to see how long each process took. End of the day 7 minutes with the machin...

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Building a Cherry Queen Bed #5: Finished the Bed and Lessons Learned

05-09-2017 12:18 AM by jonah | 1 comment »

I actually finished the bed last June/July, but forgot to take final pictures of it for a while, then forgot to write up the blog post capping off the project as well. Here’s the bed now (pardon the mess). On the whole, I’m very happy with it. The sanding and finishing of the parts went fine. I masked off the joinery and finished the parts separately, which was great. I’d never done that before but I’m definitely doing that every time I have a project of any sub...

Morris Chair #3: Chair back, pegs & final dye touch ups

04-13-2017 04:59 PM by PPK | 4 comments »

Its about time I throw up a few more pictures. I’ve got my chair completely built from a chair standpoint. The upholstery is yet to come. I finished dying the arms and touched up the dye. The tenon caps got glued in. I made tenons on the stretchers (of the chair back) and mortised the uprights. They were dyed and assembled next. I pegged the joints on the chair back and on the rest of the chair. My method for making pegs involves a drill, s...
