Furniture #2: Maloof Stool rear legs rough out

6 hours ago by robscastle | 1 comment »

I kinda chickened out making the “good” stool just yet, and knocked up some Camphor Laurel to do a prototype, read as a nervous departure from the final product! Here is the current result having made the base/seat and rough out of the two back legs. This is a side view of the legs just dry fitted at this stage I am not overly worried about the overlap as it will be profiled down at a later stage However I need to pay more attebtion to cutting detail as here there is t...

Time to clean out my lumber storage, to give more room for more project jobs coming in.These projects will go to the auction, to get a little return for my scrap transformation.

I had a couple of old 2×2’s as well as some 3/4” x 1 1/2” wide slats, doweld th...

cleaning out my scrap bins #1: Auction #1

7 hours ago by hobby1 | 1 comment »

Scrap bin clean up to make auction items, these were done last year. With some cutoffs of walnut sticks, and some resawed pine slats I made these two serving trays. some pine boards and a piece of plywood cutoff, I could make this mirror frame, I did purchase a mirror for it. Then with a lot of leftover pieces of pine board, I was able to make this mini pie safe. The mini pie safes use up a lot of scrap sticks, because most of the framing is done with them. Have fun...

Hello, Thought I would make a few post in the blog here. I am just now trying to get serious about building woodworking projects. I have always enjoyed the process of building things and I have always been a DIY kind of guys for projects that I can do myself. If I can do it, no way I am paying someone else to do it for me. Of course, sometimes my ability to get something done does not meet my wife’s expectations. Thankfully, I have been blessed with an awesome wife! My Dad wa...

Craftsman Lathe Reeves Drive Repair #1: Freeing up the Reeves Drive on a Craftsman lathe

13 hours ago by Jim Jakosh | 4 comments »

My Craftsman lathe would not change speeds so I had to stop and fix it today and I’d thought I’d share the process in case someone else has this problem. This is my second Craftsman 15×38 wood lathe and they both have had this problem. This time the the lathe would not slow down. When I tried to crank it down, it just lost drive power. It has a Reeves Drive in it with an upper and lower sheave. The lower one is opened and closed with a crank and lever inside and the top sheav...

Roubo Workbench #4: Ch3 - Crossed Up

14 hours ago by Dave | 0 comments »

After the success tweaking the installation for the end vise I hoped the good karma would continue to the leg vise. Not so… It All Starts With A Small Bonk… I removed my chop from the clamps, removed the glue and jointed/planed to size. the final size was about a 2 3/8 thick – plenty. I determined the centerline of the chop and leg and clamped the chop directly to the leg. I transferred the hole locations to the chop. The it was off to the drill press. Simple. While at Marc Adam...

The Simpler Life

16 hours ago by TDog | 0 comments »

Well, As I work towards finishing a run of Adirondack chairs I’ve chosen to put the power tools aside for a while except for needed home repairs. It’s time to simplify. Time to quiet down my woodworking. I want to focus on building larger pieces 99% to 100 by hand. I’m still debating on the table saw issue. Time for creative challenges instead of obsessive production, stress, and the shrills of power tools all day. My new goals are larger historic furniture piece...
