It’s been at least 2 weeks since I worked on this project. These are the rings that will make up the lid.
A Day in my Summer Shop Class Below are three pictures of the shop I used for 20 years. The first is on the left of the shop as you are looking into the garage/shop, then center, and right. I liked having the space open to the outdoors. You may notice the steam engine on the table in the first picture. When I started teaching I was doing a science class and a woodworking class. The kids from the science class saw the woodwoking and said, “we want to do that.” And the woodworking...
I like to make such collages at least once a year to see if there is any progress I’ve made in my carving or not. And what about you? Do you have a habit to track the progress in what you do?
Woodworking with Kids my first class The excitement and interest of my own kids about using tools, about building, and about woodworking taught me how competent kids could be and inspired me to volunteer to do woodworking at my sons’ school. My plan was for the children to arrive with an idea of something to build and I would help them build it. From woodworking with my own kids I knew enough to collect a workbench, kid-s...
the question is why? Not why do we have designers, I understand this. But, why do they do the things they do, and why cant they make up their mind? This week I was called to the finish room to reassemble some cabinetry for delivery. I didn’t recognize one of the pieces. It was painted white. Then I realized I had built it from black walnut. All of my work matching and laying up the veneer was covered with a heavy layer of paint. If he had made up his mind before I built it, he would ...
I badly needed a long term proven miter saw station so I went with the most popular version. I did not want to go all plywood for the structure as things get bowed with the stress. I laminated some 2×4’s at the four corners and did a 3/4” dado for the plywood. This carcass is rock solid. I scavenged from my ‘ol fliptop jointer/planer table my two torsion box outfeed / infeed tables that I kept around just for this project. So I had space underneath that I had ideas...
Before hanging the remaining three doors it was clear to me that I should mount the magnetic door catches first. After analyzing the location where I should mount them, I decided they should be mounted out-of-sight on the face frame; not into the doors themselves. I was going to drill a 11/32 inch diameter hole in the face frame above the doors about one inch from the center of the cabinet. The striker plate would be fastened below the magnetic catch on top of the doors. It also became clea...
View on YouTube In this video I take some Oak stock that I previously prepared and make a picture frame. Repetitive parts have been edited out. Total real time to make this was about one hour start to finish, not including the 30 minutes clamping time.
Unfortunately, I didn’t capture every step of pattern construction and have no image of a rib assembly resting on the layout. This view shows the assembled ribs with some details like fillets and radii being added to specific areas of the fingers. The side edges are left untouched at this point. Also, the only draft so far is what is on the faces matching the stops on the layout. The parting plane of the rib is defined by a line that run along the bottom of the fingers.The fingers w...
