Wood Gloat #3: $80 for 53 BF of White Oak ($1.50/BF)

04-15-2013 10:57 PM by GlennsGrandson | 5 comments »

I text a friend today to see if he still had the “rattlesnake crotch” WO board that I saw about a month ago. He said yes and that he’d sell me the 50 BF batch for $80 (he is moving states in the months ahead). I calculated (roughly, underestimating) 53 BF. I needed this score, I have a decent amount of wood, but not much of one species. I am really excited about the “rattlesnake” board (I will build a project around this very twisted board), although I have a ...

Stickley / Jeff Jewitt Arts and Crafts Finish

04-15-2013 01:24 AM by pintodeluxe | 14 comments »

I wanted to recreate this Jeff Jewitt finish from Fine Woodworking #157, however the article didn’t list which formula was used. I consulted with Jeff, and it was Transtint Brown Mohogany dye, followed by McCloskeys Walnut stain. McClosky no longer makes stain, but sold to Valspar / Cabot. ---So I set out to make a sample board to achieve the rich, dark color I was after. ---The top colors are stain only, the middle colors are dye first then stain, and the bottom color is dye only. ...

Roubo #8: It's Done!

04-14-2013 09:49 PM by bondogaposis | 13 comments »

This is the grand finale. Here I’m doing the final leveling of the top. It was a ton of hand planing and sanding. It’s not perfect but not too bad either. I only sanded to 100 grit, I don’t want a slick surface. Now onto applying finish. I used a simple mixture of 1/3 MS, 1/3 BLO and 1/3 spar varnish. Next up is to apply suede to the vise chop and wagon vise and dogs. I used contact cement. That was the last step and here is the final product. ...

Roubo #6: Assembly

03-07-2013 02:10 AM by bondogaposis | 9 comments »

I was able to get the assembly done today. It was big day. I can see the tunnel at the end of the light! I have been working on the leg vise chop and all of the mortises and holes that have to be cut into the leg as well. This was much easier to do prior to assembling the bench. Here is the finished chop and parallel glide.On to the rest of the bench. I cut the pins for drawboring first and set them on the heater. I was thinking that this would make them a bit more pliable. Buy the ti...

Christmas

12-25-2012 06:30 PM by John Lowell | 2 comments »

Merry Christmas to all! Got the presents open, kids have everything spread out over two rooms, and parts are migrating as I type. The Kids liked the folding stools I built a few weeks ago, stolen from Woodworking for Mortals, or meager mortals, or something like that. I watched SR build his in a few min’s, and promptly used plywood to see how hard. Finished it in four hours. The kids go to Camp every summer, and I thought (thinking not something I do often) build them each one. Ha...

Sharpening Stone Chest #1: Design & Considerations

10-02-2012 02:15 PM by CartersWhittling | 5 comments »

Hello. I have been sharpening my tools in the laundry room in my basement for far too long. Every time a chisel needs honing I need to walk out of my shop in the garage and into the house downstairs and pull out my stones, get them wet and start sharpening. And as every wood worker knows, if sharpening isn’t convenient then we just neglect it until it is grossly necessary. So for a long time I have tried to think of ways to bring my sharpening stones in the shop with me. Although ...

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #6: Finishing Touches

09-11-2012 04:49 PM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

Top finished Frame assembled Four-inch long T30 lags secure the top timbers. Laminated or not? By laying out my jointlines carefully, I was able to laminate some 8/4 and 5/4 together. The glueline is at the angle of the timber, so it is not visible. In addition, I laminated some thin veneers on both sides. Back to the project page… http://lumberjocks.com/projects/71281

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #4: End Assembly Glueup and Decorative Pegs

09-04-2012 05:59 PM by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

End assembly joints are drawbored and pegged with 3/8” walnut pegs. I use this pounding block to set the walnut buttons to the right depth. The buttons conceal slotted screw holes that attach the breadboard ends. Next up is fitting the keyed tenons that connect the two end assemblies.

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #1: Frame components and tabletop

08-22-2012 06:09 PM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I wanted to design an arts and crafts dining table that included arched rails and twin keyed tenons. I like several of the Stickley tables, but wanted something original. I like the feel of Keven Rodel’s Talesien desk, which served as inspiration for this table. The stack of parts is growing… Initial frame assembly… And the tabletop glueup…

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #10: End Caps and Wagon Vise

08-13-2012 09:27 PM by Mauricio | 24 comments »

Back again friends, Ok, the next step is the make a wagon vise out of this screw I got from Lee Valley. Thanks to PurpLev for the inspiration on his blog:http://lumberjocks.com/PurpLev/blog/17919 First I jointed one side of the boards for the end caps then ran it through the thickens planner, etc… Next since the wood in the wagon vise recess had warped since being cut I had to trim some wood off using my #78, #92, and a chisel. I even used the front bullnose portion of the 78...
