Chessboard #7: Carcase Assembled

12-13-2011 03:34 AM by CartersWhittling | 4 comments »

Hello. Since my last post I got the carcase glued together. But before I glued the carcase together I drilled two countersunk holes through the rails. These are going to be for screws that will go through the rails into the board’s frame, holding the top to the carcase. The holes are slightly larger than the screws, so they should allow for any wood movement between the carcase and top. Before glue up I smoothed the inside surfaces. After the carcase was dry I clamped it to my ...

Chessboard #6: Doweling

12-09-2011 03:03 AM by CartersWhittling | 1 comment »

Hello. After my last post I was ready to start joinery on the main carcase. So I decided to do a dowel joint. I just used a simple block of wood with a 3/8” hole and fence clamped to it. The hole was placed so that it would be centered on 3/4” stock. I have lines drawn around the jig to locate the centre of the hole so I could align the jig to my marks on the work pieces. Here is the carcase disassembled with the dowels in place. You may be able to see in the picture the...

Wood Scale Models #1: 1949 Reading Steam Freight Train Part # 1

12-08-2011 07:53 PM by bj383ss | 4 comments »

1949 Reading Steam Freight Train I started a new project. It is a steam train using Gatto plans. I currently have made the main frame, boiler and the display track. I made a jig out of a strip of plywood with grooves spaced the right distance apart and then glued a fence on one side to line up the cross ties. I also made several spacers to go between the cross ties. This made it super easy to make the track. Here is the main frame coming together. The b...

Weekend Pen Box

12-06-2011 01:17 AM by Owlcroft | 17 comments »

Weekend Pen Box I got the idea for this pen box from a friend. I was at his house looking at a commemorative pen he was given for retirement and was impressed with the design of the pen box. I took some pictures and spent a couple days figuring out how I could make my own. Below are picture of my friends pen box. The box turned out to be fairly easy to build once I took a good look at it. I took a couple minutes to determine exactly how It was made; then I was ready to start. Ba...

Chip Carving Knife from Hacksaw Blade

11-29-2011 10:52 PM by Brian S | 7 comments »

I’m going on vacation in a few weeks, and I have been concerned about time away from the shop while I’m gone (I’m sure many of you can relate). I figured that this would be the perfect time to learn to chip carve, since I can easily bring everything I need with me and have plenty of woodworking activities with me in a small package. But either my overall cheapness, or some galootish aspirations, made me think twice about spending the money for a chip carving knife. After ...

Rocking Chair Build #11: Cutting the Head Rest

11-29-2011 06:31 AM by Topapilot | 1 comment »

In the last post you saw my fancy-schmancy headrest cutting jig. Well, I couldn’t come up with any reasons not to use it, so I loaded up my one and only headrest blank, fired up the saw, and started cutting… Here you see the back side of the headrest after the first cut. As you can see, the blade blew out the back side as I went along, but I figured I could sand it out… It’s a bit hard to see, but this picture shows the blade position just after exiting...

Wood Stool

11-29-2011 04:24 AM by PercyMakinstuff | 3 comments »

This is my first blog entry! I had some left-over scraps of some really nice wood. So I made a wood stool. The base of the stool is made of metal. I found it in the yard. It was white and rusty but a coat of paint brought it back. As for the wood, I’m not sure about one of them. In the video, I say it has mahogany. If any of you have a better idea of what that wood is, please let me know! I want more of it. It was from a scrap pile that someone gave me so I wasn’t sure. Bu...
