Glass doors for the 6 medicine cabinets

09-07-2008 04:40 PM by PaBull | 4 comments »

(I posted this yesterday in HR) Today I was busy making the glass doors for the medicine cabinets for all the bathrooms in the house. I thought I might as well share the fun with you guys. First thing I had to do after I cut the styles and rails, was make a jig to do the coping on the router table. My router table is build in with the table saw, very basic. Here some pictures of that jig. The pictures are not the best, I took them with my PDA, sorry. The jig rides against the...

Backyard Play Set #4: Completing the tower portion of the structure...

05-27-2009 06:16 AM by RobH | 4 comments »

Sorry about this everyone. I got a little side tracked a little over 400 days ago and forgot to post the completion of the play set for the kids. The last thing I showed was the completed floor with the slide leaning up against it. Well, over the next few day after that, I got the railing up and got everything finished. here are a few shots of the final stages of construction as of the beginning of summer last year. This shot shows the starting of the rail structure. Here is a sho...

Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #17: Took the Unisaw home today

10-04-2009 06:56 AM by Bothus | 4 comments »

I decided to take the Unisaw home today since it was disassembled and reassemble it there. The only problem is I have no room in the garage. I may not get to work on my project as often because just getting to it will be a project. First I had to move every in my half of the garage out to the driveway. I keep everything mobile. I got my work bench cleaned off. I set my Unisaw motor there since changing the bearings will be my next project. I had to temporarily assemble the saw ...

Storage for this old house... #3: Sides needs places to hang the shelves...

01-04-2010 03:55 AM by RichClark | 4 comments »

I didn’t’ take a picture (edit—but I went out and took one just now) of it but I made a quick jig of a piece of 48”x6”1/4 left over and a scrap same width as my “TRUE” wood edge (need a piece of the REAL wood not metric or 1/16ish off crap they sell) the JIG is essentially a “T” that is nailed true to square… The photo got cropped a bit but look to the right and you will see the routed out 3/4 Dado in the jig that is the “s...

Arizona LJ's Picnic #1: Who wants another Arizona Picnic?

01-26-2010 07:54 AM by scrappy | 4 comments »

Hi everyone. Thought I would put out a feeler and see if anyone was interested in another Arizona Picnic/Get together? This would be shooting for the last weekend in Febuary, Saturday, the 27th. Probably at the WoodWorkers Source in Tempe. The same person owns the north store and they treated us real good last November. If interested please post or send me a PM and I will try and get it all organized again. I know there are several LJ’s in the valley and others here getting away from th...

Bed #2: Head and Footboard (Part 1)

05-09-2010 05:12 AM by tyskkvinna | 4 comments »

I made the headboard and footboard. Or at least the main structure of them. This is the footboard, before I added any colouring to it: It is pine with the stripe of redwood. This is after it received colouring. What I finally did is stain it with a “natural” stain (Cabot) and then while it was still wet wiped on a special tint that is a wine colour. I’m fairly happy with the outcome, but it is far from finished. There’s going to be opportunity for i...

Sheet Goods Rack with Clamp Storage

09-20-2010 07:45 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 4 comments »

Sheet goods that just sit on the floor aren’t very mobile. When I can’t move stuff around my shop, I can’t maximize the space. So I need to organize those sheets properly and get them on wheels. I designed a new Sheet Goods Rack, but I’m not 100% satisified yet. I looked online but didn’t really find what I wanted, and I can’t do the pivoting rolling rack on hinges some of you have done. Check out my design over at my blog and let me know what you thi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #284: A Little Demonstration Piece for Class

03-14-2011 12:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post is going to be short. I know I have said that before, but then I get to rambling on. I can’t however today because I have an appointment in Yarmouth and need to get it in gear early. I am happy to say that I got to spend at least a little time at the saw yesterday. I worked on some of the pieces that I will be demonstrating with at the lectures. Since this isn’t a ‘hands-on’ type of class due to the size and time constraints, it is up to me ...

Wedding Clock #1: Milling Stock

04-23-2011 04:15 AM by kenn | 4 comments »

This should actually be Part 2 of the series, sorry. After that swich, I’ll have the rest of them correct. I have to start milling my stock. Here’s the stile and rails for the front and back of the clock. The sides are solid pieces that I’ll glue up later from 2 boards. For now, I’ve got work to do. I’m starting on a rail to get warmed up. Here I am checking to see where I am off. Now I’ll get it flat on one side. Next up is flattening one side ...

Tenon Jig for a cheapo Craftsman Table Saw #2: Squaring up the table

05-17-2011 12:13 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 4 comments »

The User Manual has a procedure for squaring up the blade to the miter slot. It also has a method for squaring up the fence to the blade. I thought I’d take a square to the table to see just how far it is since I’ve never adjusted anything. I also noticed lately that when I do stuff on the saw the wood starts out against the fence but slowly creeps away. If I put pressure I am getting burns so the blade is probably out of alignment with the fence. But which is it? Is the blade ...
