Chair for the study desk unit for my son #1: finally started the last project

05-02-2009 04:06 AM by Junji | 5 comments »

So this will be the last project of “study desk unit for my son”. I have been thinking about this ever since I started this while project, but the other day somebody here is LJ introduced me the projects of Nakashima, so I decided to go with that taste. (thank you Todd and one.hit.wonder) So here is the plan, kind of easy one as always. From woodworking I am not sure about the extra support legs, I know it will be much cooler without them, but I have to make it strong, s...

Drawer Wagon for the study desk for my son #1: Just starting

03-12-2009 04:17 AM by Junji | 2 comments »

So now is the time to make the drawer unit wagon that just go with study desk for my son. It is just simple structure, but I drew a plan anyway. This is a plan before the drawers, just to check the sizes. First, I thought to make it without slide rails, which exposes metal parts to my wooden work, but the drawers have to be pull easily with one hand, and now I think it’s better to use the slide rail. Especially this is for my little kid, it will be harder for him to pull th...

A Visit to Hardwood Components, Inc.

02-28-2009 12:42 AM by David | 8 comments »

I recently stopped at Hardwood Components Inc., a local family run hardwood mill that specializes in native Oregon hardwood species. Stopping by this mill has been on my “to do list” for some time so I am glad I finally got a chance to poke around. I ended up purchasing a small load of Oregon wild cherry. This mill will be on my materials short list for future projects. There is something very satisfying about supporting a small local business and using native wood species. David The...

Moving to the Farm #1: And so it Starts - The Starting Stock

02-23-2009 09:19 AM by PG_Zac | 9 comments »

This is a woodworking website, so I’ll try to limit this blog series to mostly wood related entries. Many people have expressed their desire to move to a farm. Well, we have that opportunity, and we are grabbing it with all hands. Just a little introductory background: A couple of years ago, I was going nuts because the project I was on had been on hold for several months, and got delayed for another 12 months, so I resigned. I decided (with my wife’s approval) to work out...

Building a new workbench #7: First time base assembly

02-16-2009 04:51 AM by Loogie | 9 comments »

Ok, All the parts have been trimmed and fit so it’s time to put the base together for the the first time. It will have to come apart multiple times after this for some finishing touches. I can attest that I am unable to rack this base AT ALL – even though the top rails aren’t secure with their lag bolts yet. That sure will be nice. My old bench would shake and jiggle when I was planing on it. Next I will be drilling the holes in the two rails on this side of the bench...

Lumber #2: Shorts, and a T

02-09-2009 06:28 PM by PurpLev | 18 comments »

I’ve got the shorts sorted out, but still don’t have a T ruler… one step at a time. So I took the table saw, shop vac, outfeed roller, and everything else that was in the way out of the garage and started organizing the stack of shorts I got. to the ordinary person passing by, I might have looked like a psycho – cleaning board by board with compressed air to clean the wood – from the wood dust on it (these all came from a manufacturing shop and were covered...

Building a new workbench #3: Mortise & Tenon's are rought cut

02-06-2009 09:55 PM by Loogie | 5 comments »

I got to spend a few hours in the shop yesterday and I got the top planed although I discovered that one half of the top has developed a little twist. I’ll wait until it’s attached to the base and in position before I worry about hand planing it flat. I got the mortises chopped out and the tenons rough cut. Here’s where I sit now:

Lumber #1: There can never be too much

02-06-2009 09:38 PM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

It seems like everytime someone says that he has “extra” lumber, or “more than enough” people jump to say that there can never be too much, as someone said: “there is no such thing is just enough, and too much is just right”. I came upon a shop that closed, and they were getting rid of their overstock lumber. I got too late for the 5/4 10’ pieces, but I did manage to get all their short stock (cut offs, leftovers): It’s mostly Mahogany, Ch...
