  1. A few years ago, my wife wanted a rustic farmhouse table for our dining room. Well after she told me how much they cost, I said, "I'll build you one dear." I didn't really have the time for much woodworking, as I was going to school full time and was managing a dozen construction projects at the hospital. Needless to say I wasn't home much, and when I was, I was too tired to do anything. So, I opted for a very simple construction using dimensional lumber. I didn't even bother to mill any of it, as I'm sure you can see. When it was all said and done however, the wife loved it! Happy wife happy life. Several months later she then asked me to build her a buffet table as well. Again, I went super simple and used dimensional lumber. Glad she likes the "rustic" look. lol
  2. Started my bench build yesterday. No plans, just took a few measurements of me and my son for bench height, and winging it. The top will be from pine, and we'll have folding legs. Dry fitting the miters. I also got Mama's car out of the garage today, I feel like I have a shop! 😊
  3. My dad recently removed some old built-in cabinets from their 1900 vintage old homeAnd salvaged the wood shelves and sides from them. This appears to be Pine based on the couple of knots I found, but, at over 100 years old, is definitely different from today’s Pine offering at the big box stores. The grain is tight and I love the color of the aged wood. I found that the age and dryness of this made it a bit brittle to carve but managed to make this. I just sketched it and chipped away. No pattern here to follow. I am carving for the first time in nearly 20 years so things aren’t going all that smoothly. This was a piece to get some practice. I am getting better again but slow. I plan to send this to my mom as a surprise during this COVID thing.
  4. Since we bought this house new in 2017, my wife has wanted this built-in. I just couldn't find the time, but thanks to COVID, I have lots of time now. The whole thing is 8' tall and just shy of 12' long. Each book case is 44.5" wide and 12" deep and the faux fireplace is 52" by 18" deep. I used 3/4" Birch plywood for the carcasses, select Pine for the face frame, trim, rails, and stiles, Pine for the shelves, and 2"x 8" and 2"x 6" dimensional lumber for the mantle. Oh, and 1/4" Birch Ply for the back and door panels. Came out pretty good, but many mistakes made.
  5. During shop clean up, I found some narrow strips of walnut from an old forgotten job. The were approx a quarter inch sq. by 10". Since we are still under self quarantine, I have lots of time and decided to make a glue up using these strips and some maple & pine. It came out kinda nice.I made two of them and may turn the other one in the opposite direction. The oval is about inch and three quarters. I haven't been turning much lately and it is nice to get back where time has no meaning. It goes by so quickly when you are having fun.
  6. I am starting to understand why you guys have been saying pine can be awkward or challenging to turn.... none the less, oh and yep the chuck made this 50 times easier than messing with a face plate.
  7. Not much else going on in the shop....thought I'd try a few ideas out. Was getting boring doing finger joints, anyway.. Laid out some more blanks, to make a box for a Stanley No. 18.. Should be enough. A little bit rough.... We have ways... Takes awhile, when you get see-through shavings..Then rounded up the Usual Suspects... Toys? Seems to fit the scale of the parts, better..pins first.. Yes, I used that toy knife. Was getting ready to trim to the baseline....then used these pins to lay out the tails.. And cut and chop them....repeat for the other corner... Then made sure the plane would still fit in the box. Other end can wait for a bit....Set up the Stanley 45 With the skinniest cutter they made for this plane....can't even use the sliding skate.... Used a pair of "holdfasts"...time to get groovy.. Both of the long sides got a groove along the top edge....and the end even got a stopped groove The "lid" was test fitted.. Needed to bevel 3 edges...once I had the width and length figured out....Stanley #110 was still being put to work...more test fits... Needed this to size the other end panel...as it will also provide a handle... Big piece will get dovetailed in place, the other will get a rebate, and glued to the lid. Bottom will get glued to the bottom of the box. May turn the lid into a Raised panel looking thing... Well, it is a start...stay tuned
  8. Ok...got to thinking Dangerous I know. Seems I have a stack of thin Pine scraps....and need to do something with them... A couple of my block planes do have a box to call home....keeps them out of mischief and a bit cleaner... But...I think I can do a little better than just a labeled cardboard box... Most of the Pine scaps are about 1/4" thick, if that......maybe connect a few into the proper sized box, including the "lid" That can slide down over the box....maybe use a sharpie to make a "label" on the end of the lid........thinking finger joints....green, or black sharpie? Will see how the bod feels today...and see how the wood "supply" looks....may have to resaw to get enough "timber" to make the boxes and lids... Stay tuned..
  9. Ok, might as well get started....this all came about because of a royal mess ( aka cluster-....) of tools piled up, and getting dusty and rusty.. yeah... So..have been going through all the tools, deciding which to keep handy, and which to stash....(cleaned up down in the Tool threads.) Picked up a few pine boards the other day... Ten 1 x 10 x 4' planks....not the best looking ones on the pallet...but, will do for a tool cabinet build... A few 1 x 4s as well. Handsome, ain't they....$45.75 counting tax.... So, today..the pick of the litter..4 planks of 1 x 10 were hauled to the shop....goal WAS to build a cabinet 3' wide, by 4' tall...WAS...until I stood one of the up, where the cabinet will go... Sitting on a 3' tall toolbench....another 4' would have been a bit too tall....design change! so that instead of 4' tall, it will be 3' tall...yet still 3' wide..needed to trim the worst ends of the 4 planks...one even split after the saw made the cut.. Not up for that much Cardio, today....besides.this is a Vintage SKIL saw... Should be enough to do this job... Once they were all trimmed down to 36", time for the jointer. . Except this Jointer was New in the box about 1905 Stanley No. 7c, type 9 needed the edges jointed for a BIG glue up....first was the start of the mess..and the cussing.. Have 4 planks to glue up, and I didn't want 2 to fly apart while adding the next one..problem was finding long enough cauls....and clamps.... Came out to 36 x 37"....glue lines will be vertical, once the glue is cured....looks like I am done, for the day. Need to decide how deep to make the box itself....a 1 x 10 may not quite do it....may glue those 1x4s to the four 1 x 10s for the box......then decide how to join the corners, and the back to the box.....making me head hurt, Imagine trying to cut the ends square on this "little" panel... Stay tuned...this might take a day..or three

    Cookie Jar

    This is a cookie jar I turned from a chunk of pine I purchased in Big Bear. We took a family vacation and I bought a few chunks of pine and I'm turning bowls and boxes for evry family that was there.
  11. I turned this a long time ago. A friend gave me a piece of wood he retrieved from an old train depot that was being torn down. It was over 100 years old. It looked like it had some interesting grain patterns. I cut it up to glue it and was very surprised, it still had sap in it. I doubted it was that old, but was told than the yellow pine does that?????? Anyway I think I used gorilla glue to glue it because it will set in something like that. It did come kinda nice. Still wonder about it.
  12. Hi, I’m back looking for more advice. My nephew is autistic. My SIL (sister-in-law) showed me a picture of an awards shelf from a catalog and asked me if I could make one for Nino (nephew). He is active in the Special Olympics, and has lots of medals to display. Basically simple, maybe a 3 foot long x 3/4x 16 inch back board, with 2 side brackets, and a top shelf across. 24 pegs, staggered for the medals to hang on. I can do this, My question is-I’m thinking of using pine for this, the local Lowes has some really good, no knots, pieces. I have some cherry stain left over from last years mangers I made. Any issues staining pine? Sand it down to 220, glue/assemble, stain?
  13. From the album: 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest

    I cut the planks down during the original stages of this project so that the knots would land in the center face of the chest. I finished the chest with boiled linseed oil followed up by Amber Shellac.
  14. I don't care how old this chest is, it's been refinished, retrofitted with non original hardware, and it has no legacy, nothing, nada. This guy is kidding right? That being said, you don't need lineage or legacy for a historical piece to be of value, furniture can be graded by other means, but this piece has no other means, not even the original finish. This chest is nearly 300 years old, pine would have a much deeper amber patina to it with that amount of time behind it. So either two things are happening here: He sanded it down before refinishing, in which case the piece is worthless. He Found a chest that is much later than originally thought in age. If you look at the darker spots where dings and nicks have formed, they are left virtually black in color, indicating the surface was completely sanded, leaving behind the darker nicks below the sanded surface. This may have been a great piece, until the refinishing took place. Then this fellow goes and adds hardware to it in the form of a chain or something to that fact. I am not a furniture historian by any means, but things just don't add up. Here is the $68,000 eBay link
  15. I have a mature pine tree around 38 to 40 inches diameter between my garden my sewer pond and one of my pond dams. I am not sure what is attacking it, but it has hundreds and hundreds of these little 3-4 inch up 6-8 inch burls growing on the branches. In the past I just considered them a pain as I was throwing 40 or 50 burled branches out of my garden each year. With my recent interest in lathe work I noticed that people specifically looking for burls for lathing due to the unique grain and pattern of the wood. I went and collected maybe 50 or 60 of these burls up from beside the garden and under the tree and hauled them to the shop thinking I might try to turn them at some point. I have been thinking about it for the last 3 days or so and I honestly find myself stymied as to how to go about doing anything with them. They aren't going to make bowls cups or vases they simply aren't big enough for such things. Not only that but I really am not sure how to go about putting them on the lathe to begin with. I am assuming that almost certainly this will be a faceplate item but still trying to work out how to go about doing that yet. I went ahead and cut one in half with the chopsaw earlier and realized by looking at the grain pattern that if want to show the unusual grain pattern I need to lathe the object perpendicular to the branch. To mount to a faceplate I thought I may be able to cut a small flat spot on the rounded burl backside to mount the burl. So far this is where I am.... Anyone have any ideas or advice?.... Let me rephrase that.. any "good" ideas or advice... lol...
  16. Meandered down to the shop this evening.....decided to at least try a few things out.....tried the Aldi's crosscut saw to make four pieces of pine parts... It do cut fast, and it even tried to cut me thumb. Got two small holes. It had hopped up out of a cut. The 1x6 I am using was a little out of....focus. Needed a plane to bring things back into line.. I planed the two matching sides together, edge grain and end grain. I wanted them to match, and be at least close to square...Plane didn't do too bad on the end grain.. Millers Falls No. 11 junior jack plane. Once all of that was done. I got out the combo square, and marked a line 1/2" in from the face of each board. Bandsaw time... Not the greatest resaw cut, but it needs a new blade...someday. Opened this one up like a book.. Well, we have ways. Grabbed the old cambered jack plane.. Going right across the grain, this isn't the time for see-through shavings. Once it was close to flat, a second plane came out... Have a bit of trouble with that old knot....but, I kept at it. Finally got the four of them close enough to work with... Will let this set a day or so. IF they want to move a bit. I can come back and mill them flat for joinery work. Igor, clean up on Aisle #1! Lower back says it be "Quitting Time!" So I guess I' meander back upstairs. Knee held up decently, lower back didn't. And, somehow, I picked up a cut on the back of my hand.....didn't feel a thing, looked down and had a leak going on. Yep, time to quit for the day. Next up? Finger joints by mallet & chisel. Stay tuned...
