Stand Up Jewelry Box #14: Legs and internal assembly

03-15-2018 03:03 AM by cowboyup3371 | 1 comment »

I need a bigger workbench after events of this week – one of the main carcass boards fell and broke while I was trying to size and fit the legs before assembly. I chose not to use clamps as I needed full access to the sides and wasn’t ready to assemble it as it was still too cold. However, I did not lose as much time as I feared and am now set to finish this project up by the middle of next week with delivery scheduled for the end of the month. I still need to make a door to hi...

Shop Notes #12: Box Joints and Jewelry Cabinets

03-13-2018 04:08 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

I have a chance to exhibit at a local winery in about two weeks, so I put myself on a plan to get some jewelry cabinets finished in time for the event. These cabinets were based on plans for a hanging Shaker cabinet in Fine Woodworking a few years back. I’m on my fourth generation of design iteration. These are now taller than the original and have two doors instead of one. In this go around, I’ve changed from lap joints for the carcass to box joints, which should give a cleane...

Shop Notes #11: A Productive Week

03-09-2018 08:39 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Getting my resaw blade in place really opened the floodgates this week. I finished gluing up and planing my mid-century modern boards. I also finished up some leftover chaotic pattern boards that were still hanging around from the holiday rush. By mid week, I was looking at a stack of some 17 cutting boards, ready for sanding. The chaotic boards were made 1 1/2” thick and haven’t sold well in that size. As a test, I sawed one into two 3/4” boards and ran them through ...

Shop Notes #10: Almost Up to Speed?

03-01-2018 05:36 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

It’s been cold in my shop this week—temperatures hovering around the high 40’s or low 50’s. Those who live in cold climates will laugh, but with cold like this so rare, I don’t have any provision for heat. Even though the temps really aren’t that low, it’s not long before I’ve got numb hands (and a short temper). Despite the weather, I spent a lot of time at work in the shop, though most of it was spent on actually finishing a lot of personal...

Afraid to use wood my wood!

02-21-2018 09:28 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 17 comments »

A little fun with the title but basically I’m flummoxed here. Back when I was in college, in the mid 70’s, I used to make guitars for fun and profit. I was a graduate of the Maine school of Luthiery at the time. I actually payed most of my college with it. After several years I got married, had kids, etc… you know the routine. And stopped all that stuff for awhile. In the last 15 years I’ve gotten back to woodworking but not guitars. Back then I had in my mind th...

Building a Spherical Chess Set #5: Turning the chess pieces and completion

02-06-2018 06:48 PM by johnstoneb | 5 comments »

It took a little while to decide on a design for the chess pieces. I had to go through 2 books on turning chess pieces before coming up with something. After turning the maple 1/2 of a set I decided to see how well they would hold on the globe. I had made them too tall and the king and queen kept tipping off.Back to the drawing board and make them shorter. I found that when turning a large number of pieces on the spindle that I could not do the finish cut (kept breaking the...

Shop Upgrades #1: MFT 3 Powertool Workbench

02-05-2018 04:57 PM by MatthewTruax | 3 comments »

Hi all! I’ve been designing this workbench in my head for quite some time. Over this past weekend, I was able to finish milling the frame/structure of the workbench and complete the glue up. I used the Domino XL 700 and installed twin tenons (loose tenons) in all joints of the frame. I know some of you will be astonished that I’m using this walnut for a workbench, but if you look at my completed projects, you will see that this will match my Roubo workbench and lets be hones...
