Chippendale Style Chairs #1: Making Cabriole Legs

05-07-2022 11:06 PM by Dennis Zongker | 11 comments »

I’m making two Chippendale style side chairs, to go with the hallway table that I have already designed and made. The design of these chairs are similar in style with the same grape & leaf carvings with scrolls. Both the chairs and hallway table are made out of American black walnut. I’ve been working on the Back splat and crest rail, it sure is a lot of fun and a challenge so far. Thank you for looking and happy woodworking! Gluing up the four legs. Jointing the...

Bench-top Bench with Moxon Vise #2: The Heart of the Moxon

05-05-2022 01:21 AM by Eric | 9 comments »

After some careful layout for the bench top, position of the legs, aprons and dog holes, so the threads do not interfere with anything. I set out get the working part of the Moxon set up. Used a fostner bit to get a radius near the bottom of the rear chop, left 2” at bottom to use clamps to hold this small bench down. Off to the bandsaw to cut the remainder out. Clamped it vertical to the bench and cleaned up the saw marks. Over to the drill press to drill out the holes for the th...

Bench-top Bench with Moxon Vise #1: The start up

04-30-2022 01:29 AM by Eric | 17 comments »

Been sitting on some 8/4 Maple and the Moxon hardware for a month or better. I have worked out a sketch to build. So off to the shop. Started out with 2 boards, one at 4’ and one at 6’ both needed a flat square edge. I do not have a jointer, so I used a hand plane (Miller’s Falls #14) and started shaving the edge. I got it flat according to my straight edge. Checked square and was a little off, so back at it. Finished for that evening, a workout for sure. Back out to t...

Modern Woodworking Project #9: Modern Bread Box

04-14-2022 04:32 PM by TimberBiscuit | 0 comments »

In this video, I’m building a bread box. This modern bread box uses mortise and tenon joinery with other traditional woodworking techniques and tools. It features a two-tiered bread box that can hold two loaves of bread and has two drawers to store your jams, jellies, and spreads. This is a classic woodworking project with a modern twist that really updates the design. Your bread needs a home, so build it one! Watch the Build Video Here

Small Projects #59: Arduino Clock with Temp/Humidity

04-02-2022 11:34 PM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

This is another in a continuing series of weather stations. This one was built around Arduino CPU core and a scrolling red LED display. The entire unit was built with a Lexan front and rear panel and wrapped with walnut and black limba. It does other things too. It does AM/PM or 24 Hr, F or C temp, It chimes on the hour (hours can be set). It has an alarm clock with everything backed up so it doesn’t lose any setting after a power blip,. It has a “coffee pot” relay that c...

Mini Tetrahedral Tensegrity Table #7: Making the Top and Bottom Disks

03-25-2022 11:20 PM by Ron Stewart | 6 comments »

I had an old scrap walnut board with lots of character that I thought would be perfect for this project. I had hoped I could resaw it in half so I could make the disks from book-matched pieces. Unfortunately, it was twisted. I used my planer and planer sled to flatten it. I don’t use this sled very often, but it’s handy when I need it. The flattening removed enough material to dash my resawing hopes. I wanted the table’s disks to be 3/8” thick,...

Modern Woodworking Project #8: Full-Length Mirror and Stand

03-22-2022 04:33 PM by TimberBiscuit | 0 comments »

In this video, I’m building a modern full-length mirror reminiscent of the mid-century dressing mirrors. This mirror incorporates a storage drawer and the mirror pivots so you can adjust its position. I used some fun woodworking techniques like rounded miters, stopped dados, and a bunch of other woodworking tricks to achieve the waterfall grain pattern I was looking for. Watch the Video Here Enjoy the build!

What's coming off your mill? #1: The first big logs

03-14-2022 06:05 PM by bigblockyeti | 9 comments »

It was mentioned to me some might find my milling experiences entertaining so here’s what I’ve been up to on and off the past week. I’ve struggled in the past between getting larger diameter logs, up to 26”, or longer logs 10’-12’ as large of a diameter as I could handle without the use of heavy equipment which I don’t have readily available. I reached out to someone offering free logs without much of a description and a poor picture that really...

Here are some step pictures on cutting, gluing, bending, & Shaping the top edges to this hallway table. These are the last steps before I start sanding, staining, and finishing the whole piece of furniture. I also have two really nice chairs that I’m making that go with the hallway table. Right now I’m designing the carvings for the Chippendale style with the grapes and leaves that will be hand carved into the chairs. Thank you for looking and happy woodworking! Cutting...
