Workbench #5: Completed Base!

09-09-2010 04:50 AM by Clay Ortiz | 12 comments »

I finally got done with the base. When I started I really didn’t know how this pecan wood turn out looking when it was finished. I really like it! All the worm holes and spalting really make it unique. I don’t think I would want to build a big piece of furniture out of it but as a workbench it’s great. Know that the base is done I’m really excited to move on to finishing the top. All the wedges are ready to go. Just before the finish goes on we made our mark....

Workbench #4: Dry Fitting the Base

09-07-2010 03:37 AM by Clay Ortiz | 7 comments »

I know I said it would be a while but I just can’t stay away. My wife says I am obsessed and she is getting jealous. I have got to get this thing done before she kicks me out! I had to work today and didn’t think I would get a chance to get to do anything in the shop but luckily I did. I fitted half of the tenons for the stretchers yesterday so I was really itching to finish. The first thing I did was hit the water stones. Man, that pecan is rough on your tools. I am going to have...

Picture Frames #1: its a start

09-07-2010 03:15 AM by Camper | 0 comments »

I had asked about a recommendation for what wood to use for these picture frames in another post . Finally got some walnut and started it this weekend. Started out with 2 3-4”-8’ boards from which I cut out 3 36” long pieces. I need to make 3 frames which are 12”x18” and around 1.5” wide. Figuring 12” was too short to plane, I decided 36” would be manageable size and each piece would give me one frame when I cut the ends with snipe off. Since...

Almost Done With The Base

09-05-2010 11:27 PM by Clay Ortiz | 3 comments »

The other day I got a call from a buddy of mine named Von Hatcher. Von used to sell framing lumber back when I framed houses. Anyway, he said he went to work for Suawnee Lumber and that I should come check it out. I had some time Friday so I did. While I was there drooling over all that lumber, I got to talking to another customer there. It turned out he was a fellow lumber jock and was following this blog!! I thought that was really cool! Hopefully, my new buddy Ryan and I can get together a...

Segmented Wood Turning...Staves and Vertical Spacers #1: Let's Build a Fruit Bowl

09-05-2010 07:53 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

This unique woodworking project is part of the Let’s Build Series. For this intriguing, woodworking video tutorial we are once again in the woodworking shop creating a custom wood turning, a fruit bowl for the breakfast room table. The wood we are using is light walnut for the 12 staves, dark walnut for the 12 vertical spacers, and ribboned mahogany for the base. The challenge we face is gluing all 24 segments at one time. For this project we need to be dead-on accurate and focuse...

Workbench #2: Milling the Wood

09-02-2010 05:29 AM by Clay Ortiz | 6 comments »

I have just started and am already realizing that this is going to take a looong time. This is the first large project I have taken on that requires all the material to be milled. I usually use a good bit of plywood because the real stuff is so expensive. On top of that, when my buddy Anthony asked me what size I wanted I said “just make it all 5/4”. I quickly realized how dumb that was ‘cause now I have to glue three pieces together for all the leg assemblies instead of two...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #89: Back to the Shop!

08-31-2010 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Sometimes I am just like a child. I guess that age has nothing to do with maturity, does it? Here I was yesterday, doing what I was supposed to be doing (drawing) and my partner called that he got off of work early. By early, I mean it was about 2pm. He asked if I wanted to head to Bernie’s and re-saw that wood we got on Friday (I guess he is a child, too!) and it took me about half a second to answer YES! I have been thinking about all those beautiful wood pieces since we got ba...
