Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – Feb 8, 2016

This week I completed the drawer construction.  The drawer front is curved on the inside and outside and is joined by half blind dovetails in the front and through dovetails in the back. The drawer bottom is a beveled hand planed panel.

Shuffle Board by Ethan

“Attached is a shuffleboard I just recently finished. I didn’t get any pictures of the assembly unfortunately. In the shuffleboard 3 picture I used the Shopbot to create a stencil for the scoring areas.

I am an industrial technology teacher in Kansas and I’m just lucky enough to teach about the stuff I truly enjoy! “
Watch Box by Mike @ Long Island Woodworking
“I recently made a big watch box/cabinet for my uncle as a Christmas gift. He is a watch collector and needed a piece of furniture to hold all his watches. He had bought commercially made watch boxes but none were big enough to hold all of them in one.
Made from pine boards that came off an old barn. I planed the board and the grain of the wood is pretty cool looking. Some of the knots are stabilized with epoxy.  The sides are mitered with a bread-board lid because the top draw is false. The individual spaces are made from 1/4inch ply-wood and they are half lapped together.  It can hold 144 watches.”

Pair of Round Pedestal Side Tables by Henry

“For Christmas I built my sister a pair of oak pedestal side tables featuring a round top made up of an ash burl veneer in the centre and a circular oak trim around the outside accented by Ebony stringing. The profile of the trim was made using a router jig with a combination of different router bits.”
