Hot Hide Glue Experimentation #2: First Project with Hot Hide Glue

11-08-2016 03:03 PM by Lazyman | 2 comments »

So after getting setup with a hot plate and an antique glue pot, I decide to try making an entire project with HHG. The reason that I decided to explore HHG in the first place was to use it to apply some veneer to a shadow box mirror frame so I decide to use it for the assemply as well. The shadow box will be square (40”x40”) about 4” deep with a 31” round mirror. I decided to use some 1/2” plywood instead of 3/4 to keep the weight down. The back is recessed ...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #17: All Good things Must End

10-28-2016 01:27 AM by EarlS | 5 comments »

I’m finally finished with the desk. There were a few odds and ends that needed to be wrapped up. I decided to use figure 8 fasteners to hold the top to the base and allow it to move with the seasons. I happened to get my latest copy of Fine Woodworking and there was an article discussing how to properly connect the top and base and why it was important to allow for seasonal movement. A variety of methods were explained. I did learn that the figure 8’s along the front and back need to ...

Quoridor board: How to (quick & dirty)

10-26-2016 01:11 PM by Picklehead | 0 comments »

A fellow Lumberjock requested more info on how I made my quick & dirty Quoridor board. After sending him the info, I figured I might as well post it here. It’s been almost a year since I made the board so I hope my memory is correct. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to answer them. MAKING A QUORIDOR BOARD The overall width is determined by the size of the squares that make up the board plus the width of your blade. I made mine by allowing for extr...

Live Edge Walnut Desk with Waterfall Joinery and a Metal Leg #1: First Cuts With The Track Saw

10-19-2016 10:41 PM by JustinTyme | 4 comments »

I just started this build for a client. We originally started with 6/4 sweet gum. That did not work as the wood was heavily warped. We switched to a walnut that is fairly flat, but also only 4/4. Originally on of the 45’s on the desk was going to be a waterfall joint with a hidden spline. Instead I will most like craft the 45, but back it with metal to strengthen the joint. The other side of the desk will be supported by a metal leg. I have not decided what I will seal it with. I am ope...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #16: The Wood Working Blues

10-18-2016 11:59 PM by EarlS | 1 comment »

I’m a huge fan of the Blues. The Blues are my go-to music in the shop. Stax, Chess, MUddy Water, Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, Elvin Bishop, Buddy Guy, the list goes on and on. Well, this week I’ve been singing the Woodworking Blues. I’ve been working on the finish for the walnut desk top. Cutting the openings for the cords went well. I made an mdf template that ran the full length of the top with notches removed where the openings needed to be cut. A little dusty, but the end result t...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #15: Drawers

10-13-2016 01:49 AM by EarlS | 3 comments »

There are as many different approaches to drawers as there are woodworkers. The way I see it, a drawer is a box that slides into an opening. The use and type of drawer decide what is needed. In this case, the drawers don’t need to be fancy or complicated. The center drawer is 2” x 12- ½” x 24”, the side drawers 11– ½” wide. The drawer box is ¾” maple to give it a nice clean appearance. A cherry front will match the rest of the desk, and the drawer bottom is ¼” walnut plywood to add a vi...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #14: Breadboard Ends

10-08-2016 03:09 AM by EarlS | 3 comments »

Before I jumped into making the breadboard ends I decided to do some reading and get a little more explanation on wood movement and what role breadboard ends play. Excerpts from Popular WoodWorking magazine website: “Boards expand and contract at a greater rate across their width than they do along the length. How much they expand and contract is more a matter of species and final resting place than anything else. Also, wood tends to expand and contract more actively toward the bark ...
