This week has been spent getting the remainder of the lower bookcase units put together and ready for finishes. We have spent some time making our molding for the top band and trimming out the rest of the unit. The final assembly will get finished in the next day or so, but we have had some good progress. We also have made good progress on the lower unit of the entertainment center. The lower carcasses are now assembled and we have made up our beaded face frame. the next step is getting t...

Shop's Log #13: Bent Apple Pipe

09-01-2014 08:16 PM by terryR | 11 comments »

Wow, cannot believe it’s been over 2 months since I posted a Blog…still behind I am… I promised a bent pipe at the end of the last Blog, so here goes… The challenge for this project was to create a BENT pipe; meaning the airflow and tobacco chambers do not line up at 90 degrees. Seemingly simple, but not so using a lathe. Many pipe makers use specialized jaws to hold the workpiece for this geometry, but I’ve also seen a few use the techniques below… ...

Templates #1: Push Block/Hand Plane/Saw - Handles

02-20-2011 07:58 AM by dakremer | 12 comments »

Hey guys. Just fooling around tonight with my new drawing tablet. (FIRST PICTURE) I drew a proportioned handle template for a hand plane (Stanley). It is not to scale though. You can scale it, print it out, and see what size works best for you. I made these templates for people who want to make their own handle for their hand planes; or a handle for a push-block. I have the JPEG file on my computer, so if you don’t know how to save the pic (to your computer) from here, message me ...

Jellyfish Table #3: Legs and Base

06-28-2009 09:52 PM by Blake | 19 comments »

LAMINATING THE LEGS When I left off I had cut most of the strips. That was a very tedious job and I broke it up over several days (over 80 total). I finally got to the point where I could start bending my laminations. Here is the “dry” trial run: Here are the strips laid out to apply the glue. I had to mix the special glue made for laminations: And here is the first glued up leg in the form: After about three days I had all eight legs. Some of them are s...

Lincoln Logs

10-15-2014 09:15 PM by SPalm | 20 comments »

I made two large sets of Lincoln Logs for the grandchildren. This is how I did it. There are a few steps involved so I used indexing stop blocks and such to make it more safe and repeatable. I basically followed some of the same techniques as this post on the web but changed a few things and added roofs. http://home.comcast.net/~pocket83/site/ Also I decided not to stain my sets as we kind of liked the clean pine look, and this is also completely non-toxic (and easier to make). I put to...

Kitchen Remodel #1: Buffet and Hutch

05-28-2007 05:43 AM by Karson | 6 comments »

My wife says I can’t do anything else before I start on her Kitchen. Well except for her hall table and ??. Of course there is also the Summer Contest. This is going to be a multiple phase project. I need to do something with the floor. We are on a cement slab floor and it is killing both of our legs. The kitchen had a Pergo floor when we bought the house, but we had a frozen water line before we moved in and the Pergo floor got curled edges, so it was all pulled up. I don’t...

Tips for Building a Freestyle End Grain Cutting Board

11-12-2013 05:04 PM by JL7 | 18 comments »

Lately I’ve been building some end grain boards that don’t follow the “traditional” convention of the repeating pattern from one end to the other. Examples: I call them Freestyle boards. I put together a video that shows some cutting and gluing tips: I really don’t have a lot of detail photos of some of the more complex blocks but I will share what I have so far: These are some of the shapes: The diamond shapes were inspire...

My Garage/Work Shop Makeover #14: New Drill Press Table

08-17-2013 02:16 AM by MT_Stringer | 6 comments »

For several years, I have had a small bench top drill press. I made a table for it out of 3/4 inch plywood. It worked OK, but just wasn’t as good as could have been. When I upgraded to my current drill press, I transplanted the table and sold the other press to a friend. Since I am building a rolling stand for the drill press, I decided to upgrade the table also. I chose the plan from Shop Notes Issue #94. Features of this table include the following: large work surface (15×...
