3" x 3" Box-Working wood for a change

1170 days ago by Brad | 2 comments »

I thought it would be a good time to take a break from rehabbing vintage tools to actually build a project with them. So I pulled a copy of “Basic Box Making,” by Doug Stowe from my bookshelf. I’ve always liked this book and have admired his creativity and craftsmanship. I like to keep things simple. So to me, that means starting at the beginning of Stowe’s book. That has the advantage of slowly learning new skills in layers as projects become more complex. Flipping to the first ...

Shop Update #31: The saw has been turned on. Wood has been cut. It's a miracle.

1048 days ago by TheKingInYellow | 2 comments »

Not to be completely defeated, today I mounted the rear rails on the saw, mounted the MDF-topped steel extension, and temporarily hung the power switch off the rail with some stove bolts and nuts. I had to cut off the plug from the saw to connect to my locking extension cord as well. I popped a 50T CMT General Purpose blade on the saw and checked the parallelism of the mitre slot to the blade and it was out by about 7 thou. Easy enough to adjust on a cabinet saw (thank goodness) and now it...

Custom Knife Blocks #5: Lots of Slots

971 days ago by wdkits1 | 2 comments »

The fronts of each block consists of 5 pieces of 3/4”stock cut to precisely the same size and all cut at a 9 degree angle on each end. Each of these sections have different slots for different size blades so a set of templates were made to use for consistency and to speed up the process. Simply a matter of tracing the slots onto the blanks. I used a piece of sticky back label paper on the walnut blanks but traced straight on the maple and cherry In order to cut the s...

Building a custom mounting box for my VHF Radio

941 days ago by Sailor | 2 comments »

I needed to install my VHF radio in my Montgomery 17 sailboat and I wanted it to be mounted into a bulkhead. To do this I needed to build a little box insert to bolt the radio to. It turned out nicely and was a fun project. I made a video of it mainly for other sailors in a simular position but figured I would share it here since it is woodworking.

Mjolnir (part 1)

628 days ago by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

To see the pictures, please click here. At long last I have begun construction of my first mallet! I’ve been seeing all these great pounders, thumpers, whackers, and smackers that everyone has been displaying on the internet and on TV shows and finally could take no more of the bounce-back prone rubber mallet I’ve been using. As it happens, when I bought the supplies to build the bench back in August, I also acquired a nice hickory plank (4”x3/4” x 4’) to ...

Sawmill #1: Sawmill

393 days ago by log2lumber | 2 comments »

I have a Woodmizer LT-40 which I use to process lumber for customers and bowl blanks I use and sell. This is in between my day job as a finance professional I bought the mill used in 2007 after getting a job that was too big for my Norwood Lumbermate. I had a builder need beams from 80 large logs. I had the Norwood since 2005. During 2007 through 2009, I milled 1 weekend a month on average. That fell off from 2009 through 2012. I think I milled 2 or 3 times per year when the econo...

Working with recycled timber #4: Recovering / repairing or breaking down wood

373 days ago by robscastle | 2 comments »

There are lots of furniture items about which end up in a street clean up. I saw a blue painted set of drawers which appeared on vacant block near me some time ago, I didn’t take much notice of it but just watched it. It didn’t move for a couple of days so I went over and checked it out, when I opened a drawer I saw it was assembled using blind dovetails in it so I decided to bring it home. Once I got it back home and had a good look at it was worthwhile sanding the paint...
