Useful jigs for your shop #3: small mortise hinge jig for boxes etc.

1338 days ago by Bob #2 | 10 comments »

I’ve been struggling with fitting brass hinges into softer woods that I seem to work with today against my better judgment.By the time I have the mortise cut for the hinge I find that usually a portion of the mortise has either fallen away, been crushed by my chisels, or a combination of both leaving an unsightly gash into which I have to place my hinge.I’ve been looking at this jig as outlined in ShopNotes volume #12 No. 74.From hinge jigFrom hinge jig From hinge jigFrom hinge j...

My Sharpening Station Copyright 2-11-2007 Karson Morrison

2727 days ago by Karson | 35 comments »

I’ve noticed some Blogs and questions about sharpening chisels and I thought I give you my experiences and what I’ve designed. I’m getting ready to teach a sharpening workshop for the Mason-Dixon Woodworkers club and I was working on my setup and techniques. I own the Tormek Sharpening System , the Makita Sharpening System . I’ve used The Scary Sharp System and I build a modified Scary Sharp setup using cast iron plates and silicon carbide granules on the coarser grits and diamond paste...

I had a couple of inquirys as to how I built my rope tension drums- http://lumberjocks.com/projects/3705 These are quicky sketches and kind of vague, but maybe will give someone who wants to try this a starting placeFirst of all…a little disclaimer: I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT DRUMS—-or I didn’t until this project. I was commisioned to build some replicas for a reenactment, and could not find much information on construction. I looked at a lot of photos, and figured out how t...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #1: The Jigs

2127 days ago by lew | 10 comments »

I have had so many positive comments and feedback on the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin. Thank you for all of them. Many LumberJocks asked for instructions on how they are made- so here goes. I am a fan of “Cook Book” style instructions so if I miss any details, please let me know and I will try to flesh them out. I thought it best to start with the jigs I used to prepare the turning blanks. Please note that I always over engineer everything and hardly ever see the obvious or the easy...

Some things that I've learned about finishing. Some of them I also use. #2: Home made wood fillers, Pumice and Rottenstone.

2595 days ago by Karson | 15 comments »

Pumice and Rottenstone as wood filler. When you go through the catalogs and look at all of the finished that are available, you will not see this tip. They sell you Pumice and Rottenstone to be used as a buffing and polishing agent to bring up a gloss on the surface, but no one tells you about using it as wood filler. The interesting thing about Pumice is it is basically transparent so if you use it as wood filler it doesn’t contribute any different colors to the wood that it’s being us...

Very useful jig for gluing and routing thin material

2222 days ago by moshel | 9 comments »

I have been using this jig for gluing thin material for some time now: (i think the basic idea was taken from time life’s “art of woodworking”). The jig is basically piece of 19mm hardwood plywood with packing tape cover and 9mm pieces of plywood brad nailed at both ends. the wedges are tapped with a mallet to create the pressure. Lately, i decided to recycle my thin scrap into coasters, very much like tonyu’s. Unlike tonyu, i don’t have a lathe (I think...
