The crest rails are made up of three pieces. One piece is about half of the rail. Another piece of about a quarter of the rail is milled and glued to the half piece. A filler piece is then glued into the open quarter section with craft paper between the pieces. this so it will come out after the piece is turned on the lathe to size. Below is the turned pieces ready for the next step. Now the the sections that were glued in with the craft paper are removed for the next step. Once...

MAKING THE DRAWERS I trued up some stock on the jointer and planer out of Birch for the drawers: And then made the half-blind dovetails on my Incra router table (first time I’ve done that… so sweet) Assembled the drawers: And glued them up: Then I routed a stopped groove on the drawer sides: This seemed to work just right for sanding the inside of the gr...

The more colors the better. Below is cherry, maple and walnut. Rip strips of wood any width so the total with is about 12”. This is the width that will fit through my planer. The beauty of this is that none of the widths have to be the same. The board shown below is made of scrape wood. If you only have shor...

more simple carving 2

05-22-2008 05:58 PM by Harold | 11 comments »

Carving the curved letter section begins with the stop cut. I use a out cannel gouge that is close to the radius that has been layed out. If you don’t have an gouge close, you can work you centers down with a parting tool, or you can use the corner of your bench chisel to work carefully around the curve. when using your bench chisel, be aware of how deep your actualy cutting, just like before you can always clean up alittle deeper.I will try and work the curves in 1/4 sections (90 degre...

How I built my bridge

03-22-2008 06:05 AM by Bearpaw | 6 comments »

My bridge project had some Lumber Jocks ask how I built it. This is the first time that I have ever tried to put something like this to paper. My original bridge is 36” wide with a base of 96 β€œand a rise of 18”. The most important part of building this project is making the template. There is a math formula for finding the radius to lay out the arch. It is R= D squared plus H squared divided by 2 H. R is the radius we are looking for. D is one half of the cord or base. H is the height of t...

Jigs and Fixtures #3: Shooting Board Basics - VIDEO

01-13-2008 08:46 PM by mot | 35 comments »

WayneC, Bob #2 and I, have had some conversations about shooting boards. The conversations don’t last long because we all agree with eachother. It’s really the death of conversation. However, some of the hand tool posts have netted some good questions on what a shooting board is, how it works, what it does and how you use it. I put together a 15 minute overview of the basics of the shooting board. Please note, the shooting board is a tool that will have unlimited uses in yo...

The Router Table and Cabinet Blog #6: Done and Done

03-09-2008 10:54 PM by chazmonro | 11 comments »

So I finally finished it up and installed it… so here is what it looks like in place guys. I really enjoyed this one… now I need to design and build a bench for my compound miter saw. I put all my router stuff inside too… finally a place for my woodpeckers joinery fences. I did use the original brackets that use to be what supported the table to now support the gold rails and make the whole saw and router table one cohesive unit. Thanks for looking again guys.
