Workbench #3: Milling Mostly Done

09-24-2011 02:50 AM by CartersWhittling | 1 comment »

Hello. This is another update on my bench build. I have had almost two months off working on it because my friend has been in my shop working on his bench. But just over a week ago we took his almost done bench to his house for him to do the final fitting of parts and such. After doing a little organizing and sharpening I got back to work on my bench. So right now I have the legs and parts for the top all milled to thickness and width. This is the slab for the roubo half of my bench. Its 2...

Spalted Maple Sofa Table #4: Assembly and Finish

09-20-2011 11:17 PM by superstretch | 5 comments »

Once I had all the pieces in final form, it was time to sand everything down and assemble. Everything was sanded down to 220. Bottom AssemblyFirst, the skirt and leg pieces. Since the corner brackets I ordered from Rockler called for 1 3/4” square legs, and I had 1 1/2” square, I had to make my own corner brackets. That was simple enough, but gluing up was a challenge. I chamfered the top 3” on the inside corner of each leg. That allowed a lag bolt to be screwed in and th...

Arts and Crafts Sideboard #1: Short video intro

09-20-2011 03:53 PM by JoshOne | 7 comments »

So for the past few weeks I’ve been working on a sideboard bar cabinet. Like so many of us on here, I am drawn to the Arts and Crafts style. The idea of deriving beauty from simplicity, the honesty of good joinery, and a reliance on solid materials and skilled craftsmanship really appeals to me. I’m about 2 or 3 weeks away from completion I would say, and when it’s done I’ll be posting a full build blog with pictures of every step of the way. For now though, here ar...

Spalted Maple Sofa Table #3: Cutting to size

09-19-2011 05:59 PM by superstretch | 5 comments »

TopOnce I had the top glued up, I realized I really should have used some biscuits to align everything. I had some serious steps between the boards and some very visible glue lines. I made a quick cross cut sled (in about 5 minutes) and was able to trim the ends of the top. I double checked with both a combo square and my framers square and both were dead on 90s. I really needed to sand the tabletop down. The vigorous scraping had left the top surface feeling very uneven. My brothe...

Scratch Stock

09-17-2011 09:12 PM by nobuckle | 7 comments »

I have recently embarked on a journey to make hand tools by hand – for the most part. This scratch stock is a design I saw in one of the most recent Shopnotes issues. The one in the magazine is made from tiger maple, I have no such material. This one is made of walnut. The blades are made from the leftover backsaw blade that I used for my card scraper and burnisher. Each blade was cut to width and lenth with the help of a cutoff wheel, then they were shaped by hand using a grinder and f...

Spalted Maple Sofa Table #2: Milling and Gluing

09-16-2011 06:00 PM by superstretch | 1 comment »

TopThe spalted maple I had was about 5/4 rough. I would have loved to shave off a nice 3/8” or so to get them down to 3/4”, but my band saw was no where near up for the task. Off to the planer we go (after being ripped to width and jointed). LegsSince the boards I had were about 5/4, I couldn’t make the legs the desired 1.5” thick without gluing some together. Since the spalting and grain patterns were so varied, gluing two pieces together looked pretty gross....

Graham Nash Music Stand #3: Joinery and Hardware

09-15-2011 07:33 PM by Blake | 13 comments »

Once the glue had fully cured on the post I ran it through the planer. Then I used a table saw tenon jig to cut the joint where the post connects to the base. I made multiple kerfs on the table saw, And then removed the waste on the bandsaw. The finished joint dry fitted: I forgot to take a photo of the “before,” but this is how I repaired an inch-long chip that broke off one of the feet when I cut the joint. I started by using a chisel and then a file t...
