Laundry hamper #11: Second door and stock prep for the carcasse

05-19-2022 04:45 PM by Dave Polaschek | 9 comments »

Been a while since I worked on this, and the pile of slats I had set aside for the second door took a beating while they were laying on the corner of the bench. I ended up needing to recut all of the oak slats in order to be able to assemble the second door, but that went more smoothly as I have better tools for the job. The dados in the slats got cut on a table saw this time around. And the mitered half-laps on the door frame pieces got cut at the miter box. Much easier to get everything ...

Third cholla bowl #6: Shaping and filling

05-15-2022 04:39 PM by Dave Polaschek | 16 comments »

I finally got back in the shop after a crazy week. On Saturday I shaped the outside of the bowl and filled a few holes, then Sunday I smoothed that out and finished it, then chucked the base of the bowl and started shaping the inside. That’s the outside pretty good. Let’s get to the inside. First I have to cut off the pine “base.” Then clean up. Once I get pretty close to the final shape, I pull the bowl from the lathe, leaving it on the chuck, and fill and...

My Old Adirondack Chairs #4: Adirondack Chairs build continues and more...

05-15-2022 01:18 PM by oldguy2 | 1 comment »

Saturday prime time. So one pic is the poplar where I had the arm and leg pattern on one board a 4 ft x 10 in and use the band saw to cut apart and the SS table supported as an outfeed. I had 4 of these to do using boards from my bookshelf project. Then I cut all the edges to final size. Note in another the arm pattern has a sharp curve to it, that’s me using the best of material not the slope from plans. I also have the arms at 6 inch wide for a nice space for cu...

Woodturning projects #1: Turning a very cracked catch-all tray

05-12-2022 03:58 PM by TimbeconWoodturner | 0 comments »

Hi all, we’re a group of mates making turning videos in Australia in a small studio above our store. We love turning and just wanted to share the projects we create and reach out to the broader turning community. In this video Dane turns a catch-all tray using reclaimed timber that turned out to be hiding some pretty nasty cracks that many other turners would have given up on. For this project we finished the tray using a combination of EEE Ultra Shine and SHELLAWAX Friction Po...

A Shaker Style Table, 2022 version #12: Monday, busy Monday

05-10-2022 02:31 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Normally, the shop is closed on Mondays…but..decided to take a chance, anyway..first, I figure IF I merely cleaned the place up a bit…that wouldn’t count as “work”. Bench was getting a bit messy… Hmmm, took a bit… but a lot of this stuff needed to be put away, as I wasn’t using these things, anyway…so I did have to get out a couple items.. Because the drawer sides needed drilled and counter sinks done...3 screws to hold the drawe...

Third cholla bowl #5: Roughing it out

05-10-2022 02:22 AM by Dave Polaschek | 9 comments »

Got a few minutes at the lathe this morning and decided I’m just going to make the bowl in one piece. Yeah, it feels like wasting expensive materials, but it’s also pretty fiddly getting all the layers glued together. So it’ll only be a couple inches high. More of a plate, I guess. I turned the edge round, and flattened the bottom and put in a recess I can chuck up when its time to turn the bowl over to do the inside. But I’m going to try and get the outside nearly done before I do tha...

Building a brace till #32: Hammers on the door

05-09-2022 03:39 PM by Dave Polaschek | 6 comments »

Getting a little more progress. I made hangers for my most commonly used hammers on the door of my till. Left to right, the ball-peen hammer I got from my dad, and which I use for nearly everything; the plane hammer I got from Kenny in the turning swap; the dead-blow I got from Kenny in the turning swap, which is proving very useful (autocorrupt wanted to “fix” that to useless -f’in Apple); and my dice mallet from Earl, which gets used pretty hard, and keeps on whacking.

A Shaker Style Table, 2022 version #11: dados, and a dry fit

05-09-2022 01:48 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Had to figure a way to hold the drawer side still, while milling a dado.. A stop block and a pair of clamps…score across, then handsaw down to depth….and use the stanley 45 to get roughly to depth…there was an issue with the 45 wanting to tilt a bit… Used the Stanley 71-1/2 to level things up….couple dry fits…to get the back to size..was to wide in both directions..finally.. Checked for square.. I thought I had a plywood panel on hand….jus...
