Easy. Elegant Wooden Box Hinge #1: I could kick myself

06-23-2011 07:26 AM by shipwright | 58 comments »

A few months ago I spent many many hours trying to perfectly align a set of “box joint hinges” for my project ” A Little Cabinetree” After I finally got them working I installed them on the edges of the MDF sides and doors and then veneered over the whole works. The only good part was that there were enough left over prototype parts that I could make a hinge for my next project from the cast-offs Then this week I was making a tea box for a friend and when...

Concrete Countertop Series #1: 1st Entry

11-15-2010 01:41 PM by Siegel_KenEvil | 15 comments »

After two years of pondering, I finally started a concrete counter-top. This will be going in a master bathroom. I have the mold construction complete. Next step is to radius off the corners and fill the small voids using caulk and/or bondo. I’m ordering a new product from Lowes by Quikrete called “Countertop Mix”. (http://www.quikrete.com/productlines/CountertopMixPro.asp) I’ll need two 80lb bags costing about $11 each. I calculated the finished weight to be a...

Puzzles and the continuing process

08-22-2011 04:32 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

It has been a good week in the shop and that is always a good thing. I have been experimenting with puzzles this whole weekend as I have a request to make one. I played around for a day or so and have pretty much the entire puzzle I was asked to make done but need to make a frame. I want to thank Carl at Scrollsawvideo.com for posting his video on making jigsaw puzzles. The process he uses is very easy and my sample piece I decided to make came out great. If you watch his video you wi...

Double Tumble Cutting Board

05-31-2011 03:11 AM by SPalm | 38 comments »

Or maybe I should call it Two and a Half Steps. Anyway, I cannot believe that I am building another one of these, but heck, they are so much fun. This is a continuing saga of endgrain geometric boards using three contrasting woods. A light color, medium color, and dark wood selection are jointed and planed to the same thickness. I started by tilting the blade to 60 degrees and ripping an edge on all three boards. I then moved the blade over about an inch and ripped again creating a sma...
