Working title - LLB #8: Closing Time

12-20-2014 12:40 PM by BritBoxmaker | 2 comments »

Just a short blog as there’s not much left to do. I need to cut the slots to accept the bottom. The end stop is cunningly sized so that the sides with legs don’t foul it. Slot 1.6 mm deep. Final tape up ready for gluing and glued up (PVA) with the top taped on (but obviously not glued) to maintain the box shape whilst drying. Next time you see it will be when I’ve taken the top edges down a bit with 600 grit (they are razor sharp at the moment...

WOODTURNING CHUCK BASICS

12-20-2014 12:15 PM by Wildwood | 0 comments »

Chuck basics! http://www.woodmagazine.com/woodworking-tips/techniques/woodturning/four-jaw-lathe-chucks/?page=1 No, do not need a chuck to turn any things you can make on a lathe. On every woodturning message board questions about lathes, turning tools, and chuck major topics. No doubt a chuck does make life easier, but will not really make you a better woodturner. Like the article says you can pay a little or a lot for a woodturning chuck and walk you through chuck basics. I disa...

Make a 3D Christmas Tree Puzzle on the Bandsaw

12-20-2014 06:18 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I have enjoyed my new bandsaw greatly. It was a great addition and there will be many more project coming off of it. This time I am making a small Christmas Tree Puzzle that is 2 levels high. The materials cost is extremely low because you can use a scrap 2×4. This project can get the kids involved or you can hog all the building fun for yourself. The approximate size of the the is 6″x3″x 1 1/2″. After a little paint it can go to the kids to give them some fun times. Click here for the vid...

Childs Play #6: Small Tool Chest #2.. Done Just Need to Finish..

12-20-2014 05:33 AM by Airframer | 4 comments »

I am not exactly sure how I pulled this off in 8 days but I have finished up the build portion of the chest and tomorrow will be putting some finish on it. With the speed of the build I didn’t get as many pics as I had hoped but here is a series that picks up where the last entry left off to present. I hope to have this up in the projects section tomorrow sometime :D The lid ended up slightly smaller than the case (I measured once and cut twice so ...

Curved front hall table #1: The tapered legs

12-20-2014 04:07 AM by exelectrician | 7 comments »

After completing my hanging tool cabinet build I decided to push myself to attempt some sort of inlay work coupled with curved wood. This table in No 77 of Woodsmith Magazine caught my eye and I decided to have a go at it. Here are the results so far. In this posed photo I have the sled I made for this project, with the tapered on four sides leg. the rabbets cut on the top and bottom take the contrasting dark wood (sapele) 1/8” inlays. Then 1/4” rabbets are cut on all four cor...

Path To A New Workshop #4: Top Layer, Pegboard, and Other Stuff

12-20-2014 03:40 AM by Vactet | 0 comments »

So the last few days have proven to be highly productive. Before moving the workbench to its final position I decided to ahead and hang the pegboard as not having 2’ of desk between you and the wall helps.I decided on doing an 8’ long by 35” high pegboard. Its significantly smaller than my previous 4’x8’ pegboard. There is roughly about a foot between the top of the pegboard and the ceiling. I plan to put a shelf up there to hold plastic boxes like my Kreg kit...

Cherry File Cabinet #1: Milling frame and joinery

12-19-2014 10:34 PM by JimYoung | 0 comments »

It’s been a while since my last woodworking project, so I’m easing back into the groove with a new file cabinet. I have a piece of junk tin cabinet in my home office that squeaks every time I open and close it. I did some serving trays in Cherry, and really liked working with it, so my new file cabinet will be Cherry. I found a photo online and liked the style so I sketched it up in Sketchup and AutoCAD. The legs are 1 3/4” x 1 3/4” and the rest of the frame is 1&...

Nakashima Inspired Walnut Slab Table #2: Filling Knots and Cracks, Butterfly Inlays, and and a Start on the Base

12-19-2014 04:56 PM by Marshall | 0 comments »

I’ve made some progress on the kitchen table in the last few days. I started filling the knots and cracks in the top with epoxy. This is a messy job, and its a pain to get all of the bubbles out. I’m starting with the bottom side to perfect the technique. I burned the epoxy in one place where I held the torch too long trying to get the bubbles out. That just made a ton more bubbles that wouldnt come out. I also practiced making butterfly inlays on some scrap wood. Thi...

G&G Blanket Chest Build #2: Understanding the plans

12-19-2014 03:44 PM by Ottacat | 2 comments »

Before starting this project, I wanted to ensure that I fully understood the plans and all the work required. In terms of fully understanding the plans this involved reading and re-reading the article by Darrell Peart in FWW several times. I wanted to ensure I was intimately familiar with all the components, their details, how to make them and how to put them together. As I looked over the plans and went over each part in my mind I realized there were a couple of parts of the plans and ins...
