What To Do With This Board? #4: Cutting the Miters

05-13-2015 10:51 PM by Mean_Dean | 2 comments »

Hey Guys! Well, a short day in the shop today. Lawn’s not gonna mow itself…...........! I laid out the parts on the board, in chalk, so as to get a 3-corner grain match. The grain match will die into a rear corner: Next, I cut the 45 degree miters on all the box side pieces. I use a Wixey digital angle gauge, and it makes setting precise angles ridiculously easy. Every miter joint I’ve ever made with it is airtight—man I love this thing! Tomorrow I&...

Thought I'd Include My Background

12-24-2007 11:01 PM by gerrym526 | 2 comments »

Here’s the same information posted in my profile I started woodworking 12 years ago by taking an adult education course at a local junior college in the Chicago suburbs. My woodworking has now reached the stage of a “hobby out of control” -LOL. My shop started with a 40 year old Craftsman table saw (inheirited from an uncle) and a Porter Cable router. I now have about 300 square feet in my basement shop, and no more room for stationery tools! Because of the limited shop f...

Wat U Say #1: The Inspiration and the ground floor.

01-06-2009 06:26 PM by Douglas Krueger | 2 comments »

Living in Thailand has some advantages and one is the plethora of Buddhist wats (churches) found throughout the country. It is an intriguing architecture and the roof line caught my eye and became the impetus for a long overdue project. A big disadvantage of living here is the long distance from family back in the States and the guilt of not being in their lives more frequently. This is the picture used to develop the basic form of a jewelry box for the our eldest daughter in an effort ...

Queen Bed #2: Finishing the Legs and fixing mistakes

02-25-2012 11:13 PM by ChunkyC | 2 comments »

I finally have all of the mortises cut in the legs and the bed rail fasteners installed. Next step, cut the tappers in the rear legs: Now cut the tappers on the front legs: Oops, I misread the combination square AGAIN! The mortises for the bed rail fasteners are supposed to be 7-1/4” up from the bottom. I just have to remember to read the correct side of the square. So the mortises ended up being way to low. I could make new legs but that would require a trip to the...
