Shop stuff #189: Fancy root veggie bin part 3

05-23-2020 12:57 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Oh my! A lot of work to get very little done. Mistakes are made and not for the last time. Oh well, we work our way through them. This series contains measurements and descriptions and suggestions of alternate methods so you can build this thing yourself. It is a pretty long and detailed series, but I hope I am editing enough to make it entertaining. I think every woodworker will have experienced some errors in their work. I wanted to convey the same situation and not have this series ...

Building a brace till #5: Reinforcement, part 1

05-12-2020 08:21 PM by Dave Polaschek | 20 comments »

Spent the past few days with a mix of yard work and thinking about how to reinforce the rack that’ll hold the braces. With the grain running across, the slots cut into it leave some very weak tongues, which will be almost certain to snap off over time. I’ve seen this happen with my chisel till, and I’m going to have to rebuild that at some point. So I thought a bit, and dug through my various piles of shorts. I found a chunk of walnut and decided that running pieces of that from front ...

Shop stuff #188: Fancy root veggie bin part 2

Getting the side panels finished up. Also giving suggestions on alternative things you may want to do as I go along. Yup, it’s fancier than need be for its intended purpose, but hey, why not? I’m enjoying the process.

Building a Custom Shelf To Display a train

04-26-2020 05:53 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

These floating shelves were a fun build. The client wanted to have one of the shelves equipped with a custom train tunnel for his 1950’s era model train.The overall shape of the design was inspired by part submarine, part star wars ship, made from walnut.⁠Train tunnel goes all the way through both upright supports. Trimmed it will a little walnut trim to kind of act like a row of bricks. This Maybe reminiscent of my childhood watching Mr Rogers trolley in the neighborhood of make believe. ...

Shop stuff #187: Starting a new build

04-25-2020 03:05 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Last winter I started a new build. It’s still not done yet, but I am starting to put out the videos on it. I am doing a larger series on this one, breaking it into several digestible parts so I can include lots of detail. My aim is to make any woodworker able to build this project by watching the videos. I also mention optional ways of doing things when I can. It is a 3 drawer root vegetable storage unit. But I am making it pretty fancy. It’s going into a home that is a bit...

Best way to sell Walnut, oak, and honey locust slabs?

04-24-2020 08:38 PM by MitchellM4 | 5 comments »

I had a good amount of wood milled in January. I have some time to do woodworking but not enough to get to all the wood that I have. I have black walnut, oak, and honey locust slabs. I am just wondering what the best way to sell it is so I don’t let it go to waste. I am located in Nebraska. Sorry if a post like this is not allowed. Thanks in advance!

Building a River Table with a Jet Engine in it

04-19-2020 04:38 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

This has been one of the more unique pieces I had the pleasure of designing and building. The piece of machinery in the center of the table is a compression chamber from a jet engine. The client that commissioned this project wanted a unique way to display the engine. After a few iterations of the design we came up with a coffee table where a river of glass is flowing out of the jet engine.The base is made from walnut that is dyed to match some of the other millwork in the house. I reinforced...

Slant Top Desk Build - French Feet

04-07-2020 09:01 PM by MPython | 4 comments »

I’ve been working on a slant top desk for a while now. It was inspired by an antique walnut slant top desk my college landlady owned that had belonged to her grandfather when he was president of my college in Kentucky. I fell in love with the desk over 50 years ago and have dreamed of owning a similar one all these years. I finally decided to build it. The hang up for me, aside from it being a very substantial woodworking project, is the fact that it has French feet. We own a Kentucky f...

Coffee table for woodworking angst #2: Two steps forward, one step back

01-28-2020 05:20 PM by Antti | 4 comments »

I got in my jointing session for the scrap walnut pieces making up the table top. While I was at it, I jointed a bunch of scrap cherrys as well, in case I’ll make a third similar table. It seemed all went really well with jointing as well as with the glue-up. Nice sap-wood stripe in the middle and all… (The third thing being glued is for replacing the door to our sauna. Maybe not fine woodworking, but fun work anyway. The current door is sagging and about to break alltogether....
