Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #1: Dimensioning the panel pieces

10-19-2017 02:49 PM by Reinan | 2 comments »

Starting a new project for my recently married cousin and his lovely bride, who just got their first house. Figured a nice table as a Christmas/House-Warming present would be we received, as they are young and just starting out in life. I have the main panel/top pieces dimensioned to width, though not final length. The plan is to draw bore breadboard ends in walnut to frame the maple. Next step is making a few clamping caul sets to hold the panel flat while gluing. While I am worki...

I Never Had A Choice

10-10-2017 05:23 PM by 85GoCards | 4 comments »

Long story short, I went to a retiring woodworker’s auction and bought about 1/3 of the wood. I actually had to rent a uhaul to get it all back home. I haven’t measured every individual piece, but the estimated totals are: 200 bf of 11.5”-12.5” rough sawn, air dried, straight walnut. 15 pcs at 10’ and 10 or so at 8’ 40 bf of prefinished 4.5” x 10’ cherry 40 bf mix of cherry and walnut 4”-6” wide 140 bf of QS white an...

Making a home for my 45 plane #5: Finishing the exterior, and DONE!

10-08-2017 02:54 AM by CO_Goose | 2 comments »

Now that everything had a home, I removed it all so that the exterior could be finished. After a light sanding to round over the sharp edges, I applied a coat of Boiled Linseed Oil (BLO) for a minor amount of protection. The corners were also reinforced with 1/4” walnut dowels for a nice contrast to the pine. Remember that board for the base and lid? Well after the BLO hit it, it was obvious that it was not pine, but cherry, so that is providing another contrast to the box as well. ...

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #7: Topping things off

10-07-2017 01:16 PM by EarlS | 4 comments »

I saved the best for last, or certainly the most challenging part of the project, the desk top. This is a close up of the top profile at the leg from Kevin Rodel’s desk. At first glance it doesn’t seem that difficult, cut some panels and glue them together, then cut a profile on the edge. I came up with a combination of steps using the table saw to cut the 45 deg bevel and then remove the remaining material with a 1/2 router bit. Unfortunately, wouldn’t work on tap...

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #6: Drawers

10-07-2017 12:12 PM by EarlS | 1 comment »

Seems like there is always something that needs to be taken care of during the time I could be working on my wood working projects. I have to say I’m jealous of some of the other LJ’s and how quickly they can move through a project. Still, I have managed to finish the construction phase of the desk. The drawers are standard dovetail construction with a 1/4” walnut bottom slid into a slot 1/4” off the bottom edge of the drawer. Here’s my version of a dovetai...

I haven’t done a grid pattern before, but really wanted this game to play with family over the upcoming holidays. I used Nick Ferry’s jig to get started, Thanks!

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #7: The Right Color

09-24-2017 06:17 PM by Ron Aylor | 4 comments »

The Right Color –  Wanting to capture the color of the altar table in the Harvard Chapel of Southwark Cathedral, London, I decided (after a bit of trial and error)  on a concoction of 4 ounces of General Finishes Medium Brown Dye/Stain (straight out of the can)  diluted with 1-1/2 ounces of water.   I covered the cocobolo butterflies with tape and slathered on a quick coat, letting it sit for about ten minutes before soaking up the residue with a paper towel. I let this dry for about 30...

Works in progress #1: Coffee table #1

09-16-2017 08:43 PM by Stephen2017 | 0 comments »

I acquired some rough cut slabs down by Coos Bay OR. I started levelling/planing the first one and after seeing the grain and a little consultation looks like I have a beautiful slab of big leaf maple with all sorts of figure going on everywhere. I think this will make a great coffee table. So I’m planning on just smoothing it out, using turquoise inlay, and making the tables out of black walnut.

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #5: Just a little off the top

09-16-2017 02:06 PM by EarlS | 2 comments »

The legs on the desk are one of the unique features that set it apart from just another desk. Each leg is has an inside and an outside piece. They are spaced 2” apart with the grids providing the spacing for the top, and a 2”x3” spacer for the lower portion. After the mortises were cut into the legs and the leg sections were dry fit together in the last post, the edge details for the legs needed to be finalized. The outside piece is rounded over from the front to t...

Walnut & Cherry, new project #4: Lid work, and a sealcoat

09-12-2017 03:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Box is out of the clamps. Decided to build the lid as a frame & raised panel.. Did a bit of trading for a stick of Black Walnut. Crosscut to get a few parts. These for the raised panel.. needed this for a pair of long rails, and.. These two for the short rails.. Long rails were ripped into a matching pair….needed saw marks removed.. Next day. got the blank out of the clamps, and planed them flat.. Made a jig to hold the panel still.. While a pair of #4 plan...
