Life as an Amateur Woodworker #30: Recycling

10-31-2014 09:26 PM by PhilBello | 7 comments »

This last week or two, my time has been severely curtailed, whilst supporting my Wife who is starting up a new business, but without some form of woodwork, I would go nuts, therefore I have been using up some of the reclaimed mahogany, I collected from around the garden when we moved in, it had been disguarded like firewood, an absolute waste…well it was, until I came along! I denailed it, stripped the paint off and put it into store, now it has come out, and some has been used to make...

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #2: Panel Glue-up

12-29-2017 06:53 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Got the main panel glued and in clamps this morning. I learned from some issues I dealt with on the last panel: this time I cut the matching joints with one board face up and the other face down, hopefully that will remove any saw inaccuracies and create corresponding angles in the joint. I also used the new Porter-Cable plate joiner my pop gave me for Christmas (Thanks Pop!) to better align the boards and deal with the slight bow in one of them. Seemed to help align the panels while glui...

Morris inspired chair #7: Almost done...

06-16-2007 05:52 AM by Bob Babcock | 9 comments »

Haven’t had much time in the shop the last couple of days. It’s almost done though. The only wood left to cut is the seat support and I’m still debating on which route to go…I may build 2 different ones and test for comfort. Some pictures of tonights progress. Sorry the photos are a little blurry. My camera flash didn’t survive me leaving my camera out in the rain…..:( Cutting the hinge pin. Finished hinges Final sanding before the oild goes on ...

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #4: Marc Adams School, Day 3

10-12-2017 12:53 AM by TungOil | 7 comments »

After cleaning up the parts with the ROS, I dry fit the back assembly to see how everything fit. With that much of the chair dry fit, we moved on to fabricating the angled side aprons. The first step is to lay out the mortises on the back and front legs. The front legs have an angled face that has not been cut yet, so the front face cant be used to locate the mortise. I must locate the mortise from the inside edge of the leg. To do this, I work out the location by laying out the ...

Knick-Knack Window Shelf #1: Knick-Knack Window Shelf Part 1

01-12-2008 04:15 AM by Critterman | 5 comments »

Hi all, been quiet on my own stuff lately mostly because I’ve been busy trying to figure out how I’m going to do this particular project. The project (as seen below) is a Knick-Knack shelf that resembles a window with a mirrored back. The only part keeping me puzzled it how I will do the curved front. Here is a pic of the sample I got off of Google: The original was painted/milk paint maybe, but I’m going for African Mahogany. Not sure how everything is going to w...

Machinist Toolbox #5: Carcass Joinery

12-17-2010 03:49 AM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

Yesterday I was able to cut the tails on the carcass side parts. I used the bandsaw to cut the tails because the blade cuts straight and is narrow, although I did get some rough cut surface this time because I have a kink in the blade. I’m thinking in the future to use the Table saw with the blade tilted at ~10 degrees and the part passed vertically much like cutting box joints, but that will have to wait for future projects as for the time being -these tails are cut already. Once th...
