The EZ mitre technique

1459 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 72 comments »

Hello all. Well I seem to have whet the appetite a bit so here goes for a ‘novel’ technique for making mitred boxes. Its a bit like making a box out of paper, like they showed you at school, using a ‘net’. Only in 3D, with wood and a tablesaw (not sissors). Well first comes the board Its made from alternating strips of Maple and Rosewood of varying thickness. I won’t bore you with the details on how to make it suffice to say that all the corners must b...

Hand Tool Journey #11: Crown Handle Replacement Surgery..

444 days ago by Airframer | 12 comments »

As mentioned in my Workbench Blog I was planning to replace the gents style handle on my 8” Crown Gents Dovetail Saw with a more suitable one. This will be more of a photo essay than anything but lets just say most the pics are of take 2 of this event lol. I am pretty happy with myself for getting the saw kerf cut free hand with nothing more than a scribe line and a HF flush cut saw :-) Sadly I was so “in the moment” that I forgot to take pics of the procedure. I hope ...

The Basement #40: New Sharpening Jigs

170 days ago by JL7 | 28 comments »

Made a few more updates to the sharpening cart. Last cart update is HERE. I was inspired by Randy (DIYaholic) with his blog HERE But don’t tell him that, his head is already swollen…....here’s the proof: Also got some inspiration from Joey (joeysjunk) HERE for the t-track idea. I got a hoard of free MDF, so that seemed like the way to go for the base. 3 layers glued together with a pair of 3/4” pockets for the “wolverine” style bars to slide...

Multi use tool- Router planer, panel saw, What else?

1091 days ago by RockyBlue | 10 comments »

This is my take on a design by TZH of his router planer. I got the honor to tour his shop in the Rocky Mountains of beautiful Colorado a couple weeks ago and saw his setup. The gears in my machinist head started turning ( or grinding) immediately. I came up with this version using off the shelf parts available to anyone. I looked into making the rails with round shafts and linear bearings, but the cost was too high and rigidity was not good enough. The material used is extruded alumin...

Dining Table and Chairs, Griffin Style Legs. #2: "Carving the Lower Flutes & Scrolls"

551 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 23 comments »

The first step in carving out the table legs I began with the side scrolls and front flutes at the bottom of the leg. Before I start carving I always hone or sharpen any knife I will be using that have any small chips in the edge. This will give you a nice clean smooth cut when carving. For the table legs I used Genuine Mahogany it is a great carving wood and I think it has a cleaner cut than basswood because of it’s tight grain. To layout the legs I made a drawing template out of a ...

This type of furniture is a wooden swing with brass chains suspending it from the ceiling of the inside of their home. I glued together three plan...

Jordan's Project #3: Part #3 Fitting the Dividers and The Wall for the Hidden Drawers

555 days ago by Jeff Waggoner | 2 comments »

18. I then began fitting the inside wall that would cover and hide my drawers. 19. I planed the edge of the board to make sure it would slide in and out properly. 20. I fitted the board and made sure to leave enough room behind it to allow the drawers to fit. 21. I took my bottom panel and sawed it to size then used a hand router to cut grooves for my dividers. 22. I made a bead over the inside edge of my desk top with a router. 23. I began cutting my dividers with a 45 degree shooting boar...
