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

04-01-2012 10:12 PM 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 ...

Working a Slab by Hand

04-27-2010 05:41 PM by davemoorefurniture | 29 comments »

If you have ever had material that is too large for your machines, fear not. In this video I demonstrate how I use a set of planes to achieve a time honored technique by flattening, thicknessing, and joining a live-edge, cherry table top. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to give me feedback so that I may improve in both my woodworking and video abilities.

V8 Degree wedge powered workbench #2: Building the Wagon Vises.

09-02-2012 01:37 AM by shipwright | 10 comments »

OK, lets get started. I will go through the build process in the same order that I built the bench and as a non-working concept of wedge power would have been a deal breaker, the first job was to build a wagon vise or two to make sure they would work. I was fortunate enough to find a small local mill that would sell me some really nice local arbutus (madrone in USA). This is about 50 fbm and I have about ten left over. After milling up some nice 1 7/8” stock and a bit of 3”...

Faery Mirrors Build #3: Finally some mirror frames take shape

02-09-2013 03:31 PM by Lumberpunk | 0 comments »

So here is one of the frames laid up to mark the half lap for the top brace. This joint is a little challenging as one side is curved, it will be routed very carefully with a 1/8th bit and then filed to size for a tight fit. The curves were cut on the bandsaw, then one side sanded smooth on the belt sander, then stick the two together with double sided tape and route the second side with a bearing guided templete bit on the router table, then back to the belt sander while they are ...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #1: Intro

11-18-2010 06:08 AM by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

To my amazement there has been a lot of inquiries into how I make my wine cork displays. These questions inspired me to create a series of blog/tutorials to help explain my process. They will probably go into far more detail than most of you “master woodworkers” care to see, but I’m hoping it will help those new to woodworking. I remember how valuable some of the more detailed tutorials where to me when I first started, and still are for that matter. The design is one ...

"Carving a Column, Two Persian Kings" #1: Layout & Begining Carving Steps, King # 1

01-29-2013 01:23 AM by Dennis Zongker | 13 comments »

I have recently been commissioned to carve a column for in a customers home. The opposing two sides of column is hand-carved to match artwork provided by customer of two different Persian Kings while the other two sides will have routed flutes down the sides. One is of the Persian king seated on a cushioned throne and holding a staff and flower, two traditional symbols of royal power in Persia and the second one is a Persian King in Combat with a Monster and Evil Spirit. Thank you for l...

In the wood shop today #19: Pouring and polishing an epoxy bar top counter

01-28-2013 02:52 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

I’ve been working on a custom home bar built from Bubinga and Walnut using solid and veneered wood. The counters will be protected from water using System Three Mirrorcoat a 2 part 2:1 epoxy finish that self levels and cures crystal clear. I had to give the counter a light sand and through 400 to 4000 then used a 3 step polishing process to bring the counter back to a beautiful gloss shine.

Surfacing panels with a Router.

09-01-2010 03:57 AM by Bearpaw | 7 comments »

I am in the process of building two end tables for my youngest daughter that just married. The project is built from soft maple and each table requires three panels for the top and shelves. I edged and glued the panels, but I needed to level them and make the shelf panels 5/8” thick. These panels are about 15” x 22 1/2”. I am not that good with hand planes, have a thickness planer that large or the time. So like most of my projects, I have to build a jig. First, I made a ...
