Simple Jigs and Techniques #11: Modular Veneer Press Build

02-03-2015 12:14 AM by shipwright | 5 comments »

Just a few more pictures and explanations than the project post had room for. The concept is simple and can be adapted in many ways but here is what I did. First off I selected knot free parts of 8’ construction 2X4’s and ripped them into 1X4’s. Then I laminated them up in half laps so that the result looks like a box joint but is easier to get perfect fit and glue ups. I used PVA glue because I had it around and threw a few staples in to keep things aligned while I quick...

Ribbon and Bow Box Techniques

03-19-2013 03:30 PM by Lenny | 23 comments »

Enough people have asked me how the Bow Boxes I made and posted were crafted that I figured a blog was warranted. My post is here “Bow Box”: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/68845. I have seen others make the boxes and thought you might like to see different interpretations of them. bigogre has done several. Here is one of his: “Box”: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/73998. moonls recently posted one with wonderful banding in the ribbons and bow. See it “here...

Oak Leaves Dining Table #1: Carving the Legs

12-04-2014 08:06 PM by Dennis Zongker | 26 comments »

Every once and a while as a craftsman, a job will find you which will give you new life and inspiration. Also bringing out the best of your abilities as a craftsman. It isn’t easy finding someone that likes you own individual style as a furniture maker where you can build pieces that you have only dreamed of building someday for someone. It has been kind of a slow year and I never dreamed that this one person would just walk in my business and request pieces of such intricate detail ...

Building a wooden shoulder plane #1: First you gotta do some thinking...and find iron

05-20-2011 10:05 PM by Div | 23 comments »

During the recent posting by Bertha on the hand planes of our dreams, the issue of wooden shoulder planes came up. I had some requests and PM’s to blog on the making of a wooden shoulder plane so I will give it my best shot. Be warned, I work in the metric system so measurements are in millimeters. For those who use King George’s thumb to measure, dividing by 25.4 will at least give decimal inches. I’ll gladly answer any question but have patience: No computer will survive in my dusty worksho...

Building a wooden shoulder plane #6: Tune me finely...but how do I adjust the iron?

05-30-2011 08:50 PM by Div | 27 comments »

Body done, wedge done, plane iron done. If you are anything like me, eagerness to see some shavings has replaced all other desires at this stage! With a bit of luck, paper thin shavings will be curling out of the mouth. Isn’t it great! If not, don’t despair…. LET’S FINE TUNE: 1. True the plane sole. This is done with the blade in place but well away from the mouth and the wedge set up tightly as it would be in use. Why? With the wedge set, our plane is in “tension”. The wood actuall...

Building a wooden shoulder plane #2: About body parts and even a mouth...

05-21-2011 10:31 PM by Div | 31 comments »

24 hours later and I’m back in my favorite chair! It sounds like some has already sourced plane irons in many different ways. Good! Bertha is ordering a brandnew blade, Derosa found some old plane blades at a local junk store and his Dremel with cutting disc is eager to go! Grittyroots has some old molding planes and wants to use an iron from on of those. Bearpie in Jacksonville has some old worn out metal cutting saw blades about 1/8” thick by 2” wide and 18” long. Good ide...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #9: Making an Attached Top Box

03-11-2013 09:12 AM by Boxguy | 14 comments »

I make two kinds of box tops. Boxes with inset tops (above) where the the top floats in a dadoed groove that runs around the sides, and attached tops where the top is glued directly onto the sides of the box. This tutorial will feature the attached top method, and a press design to help with this process. Of course you can use clamps to hold the top on until the glue sets. But I prefer this press. The press features 8 all-thread sections with a compression spring an...

Lining Your Jewelry Box With Felt - Tutorial

01-29-2010 08:57 PM by stefang | 39 comments »

I had finished my wife’s jewelry box with the exception of putting in the felt lining. I’ve never done this before and I wasn’t looking forward to it, but now it’s done and since I’m pleased with the result, I thought it might be helpful to others in my situation to relate my experience and hopefully help someone out. There are folks out there who I’m sure are a lot better at this than me, but I haven’t seen any posts on this, so here goes. Below is a...

A slight variation on Shipwright hinges

07-23-2014 02:18 AM by BobAnderton | 5 comments »

Shipwright showed how to make these cool integral wooden hinges for a box in this tutorial. http://lumberjocks.com/shipwright/blog/23989 I liked them a lot but it required planning ahead and cutting the hinge features in the back of the box before assembly. I wanted to be able to assemble a box and cut the lid off with the tablesaw and have the choice of making an integral hinge or using brass hinges later so I developed this slight variation. An example of the finished hinge is this pro...
