Box Making #3: Inlay veneer dilema

11-24-2014 09:28 PM by robscastle | 3 comments »

Does any LJ understand the method of construction or demonstrate how this Inlay strip is manufactured ? Joe Lyddon and I have been discussing it and I must admit I was curious about it on the purchase day. Here is one of the replies Joe and I have been conversing about I had another look at the inlay veneer strip in an attempt to determine how it was made.I have a small hand held microscope I used to use for stamps, so using that I found the following Observations:Obs 1: It is d...

Arts & Crafts Dining Table (In The Fast Lane)

11-24-2014 08:32 PM by justgrif | 0 comments »

Quite a while back, I decided my little townhouse needed a proper dining table, despite not actually having a proper dining room to put it in. I like to entertain friends and enjoy cooking as much as I do woodworking and wished to have somewhere for everyone to sit together. I had little room for a full size table and decided I wanted to build a drop leaf so I could stash the table against a wall or behind the couch and I ended up settling on an ambitious (delusional??) design based strongly ...

Ultimate China Cabinet #2: More of the build for the Ultimate China Cabinet

11-24-2014 06:47 PM by bkseitz | 2 comments »

More of the build for the Ultimate China Cabinet [prior photos]. I made heavy use of my Kreg Jig for this project along with a Rockler Shelf Jig. The carcass is made from birch plywood and the base is made of select pine purchased from Home Depot. Base uses t-nut levelers and provides a flat level surface to mount the carcasses. —wish I had purchased the Kreg HD jig prior as it would have been more applicable for the base. Most of the plywood breakdown was done on my assembly t...

Shop built Sliding table for Tablesaw #3: Finishing the Bearing Truck

11-24-2014 04:50 PM by Todd Swartwood | 0 comments »

The next step was to drill the mounting holes in the top edge of the BT. I decided to use the holes already tapped for the vertical bearing, and and 2 more on each BT besides. So I just evenly spaced 2 more holes,marked, drilled and tapped all 10 trucks. I can’t believe I did not take any pictures of the top of the truck.But here is the picture of the bottom edge to refresh your memory. Next I cut a piece of 1/2” aluminum 6” X 12” and layed out and drilled the ...

(Short Video) Here's a marshmallow crossbow I made for my daughter. She loves it.

11-24-2014 04:38 PM by BTimmons | 1 comment »

(Edited) Looks like I forgot to link to the actual video. Sorry! Inspiration courtesy of Steve at Woodworking for Mere Mortals. That link has free plans so you can make one yourself. I didn’t follow the plans to the letter, I watched the video once with my daughter and just kinda winged it from memory, so astute viewers might note that a few details are off. When my almost five year old is “helping”, I don’t exactly have the same focus and time to make somethin...

Thorsen House Cabinet #2: Preliminary CAD plan and design specifics

11-24-2014 04:13 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

I spent 3-4 hours this weekend poring over photos and videos of the original piece in situ. This is one of the appealing pleasures of Greene & Greene work and definitely one that feeds into my natural tendency for puzzles and rocket scientistism. Overall, the dimensions are not too far removed from the original which is fantastic in terms of not having to re-calculate proportioning to keep everything in check. The area the cabinet will be fitted within is 1640mm (64-1/2”) wid...

A Strategy for Woodworking #36: Discontent

11-24-2014 04:09 PM by Gary Rogowski | 3 comments »

Discontent is the key to success, not satisfaction. To do more than you did before is what creation is about. To do the job better than the last time, to create something more special, or to walk new ground. This is what comes from our seasons of discontent. If we say to ourselves, I have learned enough. I am now the master of my craft, you have lost touch with that spark that keeps us creating. Satisfaction doesn’t spur us to do more. It leads us only to the couch. Keep trying to do be...
