Grizzly G0555 -new dust port #2: Grizzly G0555 Dust Port- Revised Design

1150 days ago by Jim Jakosh | 7 comments »

I must admit my first attempt at a acceptable dust port for my Grizzly G0555 failed. It still left opening for dust to escape and I trashed it. I had to cut a lot of particle board in circles and thoroughly dusted the shop. That stopped me after that project and I wanted to collect the dust RIGHT OFF THE BLADE before it got to the lower port on the saw and everywhere else. So the following is what I came up with and it worked well after feeding 4 feet of particle board through it for a test....

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #12: Making Tea Box Dividers Of Venetian Blinds

95 days ago by Boxguy | 21 comments »

How do you install a grid work inside a tea box so it looks like this? Here is what the lift-out grill work looks like inside the tea box. This is what the lift-out grill work looks like outside of the box. The small compartment to the left makes a chain pocket so the stop chain doesn’t get tangled with the teabags... Why use Venetian blinds for lift-out dividers? By the time you plane, sand, and finish slats to make dividers inside boxes you have a lot of time and ...

Mounting a TV panel

1580 days ago by zlatanv | 5 comments »

Some friends wanted a Panel to mount a flat screen TV but were limited on wall space so they wanted the panel to go over a window, but wanted the panel to sit flush to the wall. Here is how I did it using some french cleats on a frame built inside the window frame. First I cut some cleats I mounted one side to the panel about 18” off the top and bottom with glue and screws. Once that dried I clamped the other side of the cleat to them and built a frame to match the window openin...

How to silver solder band saw blades

245 days ago by hydro | 14 comments »

This will assist in repairing a broken blade or in making your own blades from coil stock or auction site blade stock. First, you will need some blades. I like to buy coil stock if I can get it for a good price, or I buy blades in bulk that are a little longer than I need. I will cut these down to length. To solder the blades, you will need silver solder and flux. I use silver solder that I got at the hardware store, and a boron modified flux that I found at McMaster Carr. The boron mo...

Secrets of the String Box Revealed #1: Intro and Invitation

1435 days ago by newTim | 14 comments »

This summer’s projects have been boxes. Lots and lots of boxes. Somewhere along the way I got the idea of combining the wrapping technique with a simple inlay to see how hard it would be to align the lines all around the box. In other words, at the corners. Turns out it is not that hard to do. So I’ve been experimenting. I’ve posted the first completed boxes as a Project and will post more upon completion. The photos below give an overview of this technique and the pi...

Inlaid Wooden Hinges #2: Making the inlays.

813 days ago by ruddy | 4 comments »

Ok…..This will mainly deal with making the inlays 1. A drilling jigIt is very important that when drilling the holes in the inlays all holes are in the same exact position.The hinge pin I use is made from 3/32 dia brass rod. I manage to get it from a good hobby shop that sells RC model cars helicopters etc.From this point on, everything relies on going back to the reference face on the hinge leaves and also the hinge pockets. The hinge pins need a 3/32 dia hole drilled 6 mm from the ...

Inlaid Wooden Hinges #1: Getting started

813 days ago by ruddy | 4 comments »

I had a few of the boxmakers asking for a tutorial blog on the method I have used to make inlaid hinges. This is a first for me so be gentle, pull up a chair and get a coffee. And ask any questions…....I like to make boxes and have done a few with conventional wooden hinges but I thought they were more suited for rustic designs when virtually added to the box as the last sequence when making the box. I played around with a few designs of flush mounted hinges and came up with the concept...

1645 days ago by stefang | 53 comments »

While the rest of the world is going forward I seem to be going in the other direction, ie; wooden hinges. I bought a book from FWW back in 1998 showing router projects and techniques culled from past magazine articles. There was an article there by Rob Cosman.which included a method of making wooden hinges. This is the type of hinge in question shown on my box below. ““ ““ Main Problems producing a hinge using Rob Cosman’s method In Cosman’s a...

Wooden Double Action Hinge

894 days ago by Joshuah | 17 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I posted a project of a wedding ring box I made for my wife. It actually received quite a few comments about how I made the hinges…which I guess we are calling double action hinges. Since there was quite a few questions on how I made it, I decided that I should probably make a tutorial, considering I learn so much from tutorials on here. The box had hinges that were only about 4 cm, but for this I am doing larger ones so my camera picks up the steps better. ...

846 days ago by woodshaver | 21 comments »

I was on luv2learn blog and after seeing his great mug’s I thought Why not use the Band Saw Box technique to make a Mug! Lu2lean ask me if I had the time to give it a try so I made one today. I took a bunch of pictures and put it to video. I used some Cedar for the mug and Cherry for the handle. Just some scraps I had laying around. I got the handel pattern from Steve Good Thanks Steve and luv2lean! I think it came out well!
