Gaming High Top #1: Introduction & Planning

11-28-2019 03:38 PM by whope | 0 comments »

Hi Folks!Earlier this year, I decided I wanted a bit bigger project than I have done in the past. I thought it would be fun to do a gaming table and decided that it would be a high top style made out of Walnut. My son found out what I was doing, so then it became two tables. Historically, every project I’ve done has had to been done twice in at least one aspect. Usually more. :) To counter that, I decided the start with less expensive wood, like White Oak, to make my big mistakes the...

DVD Cabinet of Ash #11: Door installed, and a PIP

11-12-2019 01:55 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Door came out of the clamps ok. But, you would not think it would be so hard to fit a door….grrr, cussing began right away… Trouble began when I laid the door on the case….bottom of the door fitted up nicely with the sides…but, as I went up the sides…case seemed to “flair out” a bit….seemed the two shelves had bowed the sides out….Made a few marks, and planed and belt sanded until the sides matched the edges of the door…Once thi...

How to Build a Cribbage Board

10-13-2019 06:57 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

The board is made from cherry and the ends are walnut. I built these for a local shop so they are laser engraved with “Black Forest Colorado” to give the tourist something to take home. If you are interested in seeing how I made them. Check out my video.

50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 #41: Walnut and resin

10-03-2019 01:16 PM by mnguy | 1 comment »

One of my favorite sources of turning material has become the offcut bins at a local hardwood dealer + cabinet shop. Always something different, you have to design around the wood a bit, and it’s cheap! This piece of walnut had a through-crack, which filled nicely with tinted System III. Once on the lathe, I decided on a modern form. Finish is shellac sanding sealer and Ack’s abrasive paste.

A Wood working road trip #1: Piatt Castles in Ohio

09-22-2019 08:20 PM by leafherder | 5 comments »

Hi Lumberjocks, I took some inspiration from my Lumberjocks Buddy and went on a Mark Wilson style caper yesterday – a roadtrip to the Piatt Castles in West Liberty Ohio. Two grand 19th century mansions built by a set of brothers. Stopped my little red car at Mac-A-Cheek first Before you get excited my little red car is the Honda on the left – not the bright red sports car. Both castles are constructed of limestome which was quarried on the property, but being lumberjocks...

Building A Cuttaway Acoustic Guitar #4: Part 4: Rosette, Bracing and Gluing the Top

09-10-2019 10:23 PM by DMiller | 5 comments »

Well folks, its been a while! I am now in my senior year of high school and unfortunately, time is not slowing down! I haven’t had a lot of time to work on the guitar this past summer, but I really have enjoyed the time I have had. Looking back at my last blog makes me feel like since my last post not a lot has happened; in reality I feel like I understand how to build a guitar and the order everything is assembled much better. The rosette has taken just about the most time creating-...

Mini-Roubo from Oz #3: My first workbench build: Leg Vise - The beginnings

07-28-2019 10:31 PM by siggykc | 0 comments »

Gday all! So, whilst I was constructing the base of the bench, in parallel i had been keeping an eye out for folks selling interesting timber that I could incorporate into the bench.As i live in essentially a flat sized house, I dont have a huge stockpile of timber and just acquire it as I go.I came across a bloke who had an old hard maple bowling alley that he had ripped up. After close inspection, i figured it wasn’t the ideal thing to incorporate into the bench, but he had a shipp...

Mini-Roubo from Oz #2: My first workbench build: The Legs and Rails

07-26-2019 02:08 PM by siggykc | 3 comments »

Okey-dokey, Please, do bear with me folks. I posted my next entry accidentally as a comment….whoops! I’ll see if i can delete it and re-post it here as I’m meant to. Legs: Wooh! Who doesn’t like a good set of pins! The leg construction is all mortise and tenon. The Benchcrafted Tail Vise requires a certain amount of space between leg and the edge of the bench top to accommodate the mechanism.I had seen other people with shorter benches bore a hole for th...

Mini-Roubo from Oz #1: My first workbench build: Background

07-25-2019 10:08 PM by siggykc | 3 comments »

Hi all, I’m new to this forum, and have been finding it a great resource in general. I figured I should contribute a little bit to it. So here it goes, my first workbench – a MINI ROUBO!(You can find it on my Instagram under Siggykc) I know “Why not go the full hog and build a full sized Roubo??” This is just to put it into context, as I simply lack the space to house a full sized Roubo workbench. I am an average bloke (I work in the city) living in a small flat ...
