Morgan's Jewelry Box #1: Porter Cable Dovetail Jig Joinery

05-21-2007 06:21 AM by USCJeff | 3 comments »

Continuing the Lesson’s Learned Theme: I used mitered joints for my Mom’s jewelry box that I completed last weekend. Moving on to my wife’s box, I decided to up the level of the craftsmanship and use half-blind dovetails to join the box sides. I went to my PC Dovetail jig to do this. I have very limited time logged with this jig, so I had to refer to the manual for setup as it has been a while. Here are a couple things that I would have liked to have known prior to th...

Another day, another nickle #1: Another day another nickle

07-28-2007 03:21 AM by Thos. Angle | 3 comments »

Well, I’m back. The computer burped and was in the shop for a few days. I took some photos of the shop and wanted to photograph my latest project but the camera went to Hawaii with daughter Julie, to photograph a wedding. Thanks to everyone who tryed to help me with the pictures in my computer. As it turned out I had to un-install the printer I was using so I just re-installed my old one and re-worked the photos the way they got that way in the first place. So I’ve posted some mo...

Discovering Wood #2: A Little About Me

03-17-2011 05:12 PM by DocT | 3 comments »

The following is my second post at Discovering Wood, posted concurrently here at Lumberjocks: I guess that I should tell you a little about me. First and foremost, I am an avid woodworker. Like I mentioned in my first post, I have been working with wood for more than 25 years (and I’m only forty!). I started back in high school with a scrollsaw, in Dad’s shop, during the heyday of country décor, cutting goose shapes from pine for my Mom’s craft business. It paid quite well, and, as it ...

Dove Tail jig

02-25-2012 04:11 AM by BigD1 | 3 comments »

I am in the market for a dove tail jig that I can joint 20 inch box sides and ends together. I have read about a few, and would like some feed back on what works and what may be a good investment. I must not be a great craftsman, for I don’t want to cut joints by hand. I would even be interested in buying one, if there is something for sale, and I thought I would like it. Thanks for your help. I’m open to all info. BigD1

Wood purchase options

01-09-2013 05:47 AM by CalgaryGeoff | 3 comments »

I’ve been wood working for a few years now and during that time have found enough wood to fill my shelves and bins to their capacity. I have a moderate hobby work shop in my garage with a bit of inventory. I estimate about 1800 bf of wood and 30 different species at present. I’ve purchased lumber from commercial stores specializing in wood working (very expensive) but sometimes you want or need what they have, over the Internet from a lumber wholesaler in Victoria BC (less expensi...

Musical Instruments Restoration #5: Violin 2 - The Jig for the ribs

07-01-2013 08:41 AM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

Here is the progress of the violin restoration as the continuation of this blog. In the process, the need for making the ribs of this violin is a must. After several try of bending the wood, there is no way but to make a jig that will hold the steamed wood while it is hot. So here are some of the photos: I made this using a two boards cut into shape of 3/4 inch plywood and laminated together. That was too thick. I realized later that the correct thickness is just one and 1/4 inch so ...
