Storm Door Inserts

1522 days ago by Troy | 7 comments »

Several days ago, I was asked to rebuild a few storm door inserts destroyed by some overzealous dogs.  Dogs – 1 || Door Insert – 0  I hesitated a bit because it seemed liked a boring production item, but I am not one to usually turn down a woodworking project.  No better softwood  So I got some high-grade Douglass Fir and went to work replicating the screened versions. The mangled model was made with bridal joints in each corner and sep...

Arts and Crafts Nightstand #4: Tops, Drawer Fronts, and Corbels

445 days ago by pintodeluxe | 6 comments »

This is the nightstand project…-----Panel glueup for the tops. I do my glueups in two stages. First I glue two pairs of boards together to make planks. Then I send them through the planer while they are still narrow enough to fit. Finally I glue these two planks together to make a panel. I describe flat panel construction in detail in my dresser blog… http://lumberjocks.com/pintodeluxe/blog/33797-----A pair of rough glueups complete. -----I made a template for the corbels, w...

V8 Degree wedge powered workbench #8: The Sketchup ....Worth Waiting For

709 days ago by shipwright | 22 comments »

When I started thinking about this bench I did a sketchup to organize my ideas before I started building. This is a real switch for me but I have to admit it was kind of fun and clearly made building easier. That sketchup however was not really good enough to give someone unfamiliar with all the thought processes a simple plan to follow. Realizing that several people may actually want to build it I decided that a better SU was in order so I asked LJ resident Sketchup Master, Rance, if he c...

There has been alot of conversation as to how to cut a certain lb cut shellac to sume other cut.

For example, to convert a 2-lb. cut to a 1-lb. cut, add 2/3 of 1 part al...

Maple Barrister Bookcase

1821 days ago by Scarcraig01 | 3 comments »

This blog will follow my process as I build a maple set of barrister bookcases. My long range goal is to build a total of 22 barrister “boxes” divided into 6 units. To date, I have completed 8 boxes in 2 units. The first, is solid quartersawn white oak with frame and panel sides. The second, was made using mahogany plywood with solid mahogany trim pieces. The plan I’m using, (although somewhat modified) is from plans now.com I added frame and panel sides to min...

Free 18th Century Style 3/4" Wooden Rabbet Plane Plans

518 days ago by Caleb James | 7 comments »

So in the spirit of getting everyone in the shop and cutting up some wood I decided to post up a measured drawing of a 3/4” wooden rabbet plane in the 18th century style. It is all wood with the exception of the blade which is easily gotten from Lie-Nielsen here. It features a conical escapement and some simple embellishments that a hand plane, chisel, and #7 sweep gouge can handle. The plans are basic with a few things that can be easily changed if you like. Such as the bed angle...

Wall Unit Project #8: WooHoo! Mosaic Panel is done! Thank you Katie Couric!

506 days ago by DS | 7 comments »

All of you who’ve been following this blog know that the Mosaic Panel design has been the main sticking point from the beginning. Finally, I was flipping channels the other day and saw Katie Couric’s new show and she has a mosaic panel in the background of her set. The colors and style are perfect for this wall unit! I paused the screen and got out my phone and took a picture. I started with a Honey Maple Stain over a sealer coat, then, using the pics as a guide, I l...

Game Calls #1: Turkey Friction Call

543 days ago by ghost5 | 8 comments »

Well, thanks to the comments and questions I have gotten I dug through my pics to find one I had on how to make a pot call. So for the folks that want a quick tutorial here we go. A pot call is basically a shallow dish containing two ledges inside. One is cut into the rim to hold the playing surface while the second is a ring left in the center raised to clear the bottom of the pot and still leave a space between the sound board that rests on it and the playing surface above it. One thi...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #16: Da Plane! Da Plane!

873 days ago by StumpyNubs | 18 comments »

If you like to see fat midgets pointing up at the sky, you’ve come to the right place, my friend! (Actually, there are no midgets here, and I am not entirely sure we are allowed to say that word anymore…) But the reference still applies because this episode is all about “Da Plane! Da Plane!” We start out with a quick tool review, then we make a scrub plane for just #10. Along the way we learn the fastest way to put a camber on a plane iron, we reveal the plane till ...
