Large Panel Glue Up

368 days ago by Cecil Rogers | 4 comments »

Anyone that’s ever glued up a panel, and done it the “wrong” way, knows a few things about the process… First, biscuits only offer marginal help. Wet glue is quite possibly the slipperiest substance on earth, and if misalignment can happen, it most certainly will, but not until the glue has set will it be noticed. Ultimately, Murphy lives, and he may be an optimist. After struggling with a couple over the years, I finally broke down and spent a few hours building some panel glue up “helper...

Making a Texas Star

929 days ago by iltws2 | 17 comments »

I would like to start out by saying the projects listed on this site really show some of the best talent and creativeminds ever amassed on one website. Makes me jealous. Any way I have been asked to show how I make a Texas Star, so I decided to share this with everyone. There are a few things you need to make before starting. First thing is to make a pattern making fence for your table saw. It is real simple. I usually make mine 4-6 inches wide out of 3/4”plywood. Rip a scrap piece o...

Trays from Pallet Wood, with handles

1143 days ago by ~Julie~ | 9 comments »

I have a lot of pallet wood and enjoy using it to make new things. I also bought a bag of used handles not long ago, so I figured I would incorporate them into the new projects which are trays. Four of the handles were soaked in a mixture of vinegar and water with a ball of steel wool thrown in the tub which makes the handles look old and rusty. They are attached with screws from the inside after the tray is made. The pallet wood is planed and trimmed to size. Holes remain from the or...

For those of you who asked me for a tutorial on how to make the zig zag legless vegetable death table (cutting board), here is my best shot.

Workshop Build #24: Wall - Mounted Bins

1443 days ago by ~Julie~ | 11 comments »

I posted a question in the forum section here two months ago asking what others did for organizing all their screws, hooks, etc. in their shops. Some people suggested buying plastic bins, others said use jars or bags. I had a plan in a magazine full of shop storage and tool cabinets put out by the Woodsmith/Shop Notes people and so I decided to make my own. Unfortunately I felt like one of Santa’s elves with the assembly line of parts. It seemed to take forever to make all the b...

Wow, there are a bazillion examples of bandsaw boxes on LumberJocks. I always thought they were complicated and had a hard time finding some really basic instruction. Well, here is a video for all of us bandsaw box newbies! The neat thing about bandsaw boxes is that if you give them away as gifts, people will be amazed and wonder about your woodworking prowess. They will think you are a woodworking god! Little will they know that you are a Mere Mortal and these boxes are totally easy to cr...
