My Ultimate Workbench Build #7: Trials and tribulations in sliding dovetail end caps...

07-28-2011 05:37 AM by RS Woodworks | 17 comments »

Hmmm… well I posted blog entry #6 this morning, and as of this moment it shows 158 views, but not a single comment! I’m either boring you all with too much detail and my mindless blathering, or I just have such a small following on this blog that all two of you were busy today…. Haha! Well I will continue at any rate, as I’m sure somebody who cares will run across this someday. ;) I decided after dry fitting the legs into their mortises to continue working on the...

My Ultimate Workbench Build #6: Planing, and chopping mortises...

07-27-2011 04:57 PM by RS Woodworks | 5 comments »

Well it’s been a little bit since my last blog, but here is what I’ve been able to get done in the shop over the past little bit. I last left with a freshly glued up top, and a question on what timbers to use for the legs. Well I decided to use the four maple beams I had for the legs. Even though two of them contain the pith, and some rather large cracks, I would rather have that then 3 different types of wood that looked only slightly better, so maple it is. After the top w...

Roubo Cabinet #17: Finish Applied, Final Entry

07-26-2011 04:24 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 12 comments »

Two snapshots is all there is for this entry. Pulled the cabinet out of its cubby below the workbench and set it on top for an applied finish. I’ve thought for awhile there were some proud dovetail joints needing some final attention, but decided all was good. Finish consisted of a single coat of boiled linseed oil, which I will reapply this fall when my entire bench is due for a refresher coat of Watco’s. Started wiping the first drawer, big smile on my face. I was amazed / truly didn...

Roubo Cabinet #16: Final Assembly - Drawer Backs, Bottoms and Fitting

07-25-2011 04:48 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 10 comments »

This is the last post required to complete the build and make ready for applying the finish of my choice to get this one in the books. Once all the drawer fronts have been joined to the sides, and those cut to rough length, I had to work on adding backs to the drawers as well as bottoms. All drawer backs were set into simple dados that were cut on the table saw. For the Big Drawer as well as the Big Pair of drawers, the drawer bottom consists of a single piece of repurposed hardboa...

Speaker Stands #1: Day 1

07-24-2011 08:04 AM by SoCalDJ | 2 comments »

Well today I started the project. I needed to make some speaker stands for my surround channels. I thought the options online were either stupidly expensive ($500 for some 4/4 Walnut really stands, Really?) or just ugly so I decided to make my own. I took inspiration from our new couch and used the baseball stitching in the leather to create design with contrasting walnut and maple. Today I spent the day milling the lumber (Just got a new old jointer :), Bridgewood 6”) and ...

From tree to lasting memory #7: design a simple solar kiln

07-24-2011 12:00 AM by gpastor | 7 comments »

Would it be funny if I said “I am a little green when it comes to drying wood” or ” I think my wood has an ear infection, it equilibrium is off” It sounded funny in my head, oh well. Like milling logs, drying them is all new to me. I have found there is no shortage of good informatiom on drying wood from Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wood_drying to books like Fine woodworking on wood and how to dry it http://www.amazon.com/Wood-How-Fine-Woodworking-Edi...

No Quarter #1: Shell box - Intro and pattern

07-22-2011 08:44 PM by BritBoxmaker | 18 comments »

Hello here this is my second attempt to blog shell boxes. The last one ended up in the wall art ‘Inverted World’. Well this one is a little less spectacular but is based along the same theme of curves. This time a curved pattern but it will have stringing introduced between the colour changes as will become apparent as the blog progresses. The main woods are American Black Walnut and Sycamore with Yew stringing. I will be book-matching woods where necessary. First step i...

Hand Cutting Dovetails

07-21-2011 08:09 PM by AlexHarris | 11 comments »

Hey LJ! Sorry to anyone who got the wrong video first time they viewed, I embeded the wrong video but that has now been rectified. I am by no means what you would call an experienced hand tool user and I tend to use them in conjunction with my powertools. Nevertheless following a hand tool project where I made some bookends which I did a few weeks ago… you can check that out by clicking on the link… Here! Anyway after that video I was asked about cutting dovetails so here...

While I was waiting for the glue to try on the weave blanks….. I made a few wine bottle balancers .. These were made from some of the European Walnut and Cherry I bought a few years ago..the one on the end is Camphor cut across the grain The group shown here are all Camphor Laurel… with Australian Pennies inset in them… A close up shot… There is no finish on any of them… I will be spraying a water based finish shortly… and then watch the grain p...
