Family Room Built-Ins #2: Cabinets and Books Shelf Construction

11-24-2014 12:59 AM by EWJSMITH | 0 comments »

I decided to take the approach of constructing the built-ins as a set of base cabinets with bookshelves on top. For this project, there’s a real mish-mash of materials – mostly stuff I had on hand from previous projects or readily available and inexpensive at the big box stores so there’s birch ply, pine and mdf. I didn’t really care since it was all being painted anyways so material choice didn’t matter to me. Glad I made the bookshelves from pine and not MDF...

OK, The French Veneer (at last) #7: Messing With a Master

11-23-2014 11:35 PM by shipwright | 17 comments »

My last entry here was almost a month ago and I was about to leave for Arizona for the winter. Well, I’ve been here (Az.) for almost a month now and I’m just getting around to the jewellery box. When I left off I had just dovetailed the drawers and dry assembled the whole box to assure myself that going on was in fact, a good plan. There’s a little more to the drawers but I’ll deal with that another time. This entry is dedicated to Pierre Gole, one of the truly gift...

Childs Play #2: Toy Handplane Build #2... Drill Press Turning and Stuff..

11-23-2014 11:15 PM by Airframer | 5 comments »

I had hoped to be further along on this by now but progress is still progress I suppose. I am taking some vacation time next week so hopefully I can get this mostly done by the end of the first week of DEC leaving just a few simple tools left to complete the set for Christmas. Anyhoo.. we left off with the rough joints brazed into the aluminum. After sanding for a few hours I finally broke down and picked up a belt sander for the shop. I had been tossing around needing one for about a y...

Box Making #1: Solid Myrtle Inlay Box SMIB (built by after thought processes)

11-23-2014 09:17 PM by robscastle | 4 comments »

I was supposed to be cleaning up for Christmas when I found a length of of Tasmanian Myrtle offcut. I decided I should put a challenge to myself and try to make a box from it just using the one piece of solid timber. This is where all the creative after thoughts started kicking in! (ATn) I originally started off with the box using the length of Tassie Myrtle which was about 800mm long 90mm wide and 20mm thick. Preparation of the Box Frame: AT1 I thought I would match all the gr...

11-23-2014 09:17 PM by Todd Swartwood | 2 comments »

This viewis from the back of the saw. Top of BT The next step was drilling the vertical holes in the BT. I new I did not want the bearing out side the BT on the back side. so I made the center of the hole in from the front 5/16”. The first step was to drill for the 5/16” tap, in aluminum I go to sizes down or 1/32” smaller than the tap size. After setting up the fence and stop block I began to drill the holes, drilling all the way threw the 2” of BT heigh...

Card scrapers #2: Card scraper stands quick and clean.

11-23-2014 08:54 PM by mafe | 9 comments »

Card scraper standsquick and clean. Yes this is no rocket science, but a quick and joyful practical project that can be made even if all the tools you own is a handsaw and you need no experience to make it.The reason I never made one before are the fact I only had a few card scrapers, so I had no need.The reason I share this project are that I think it’s a wonderful simple project that organize and can make the tools be at hand when needed. I used to have only three card scrapers ...

Super Sander - Steve Good Review

11-23-2014 12:31 PM by BigFoot Products Canada | 1 comment »

The Bigfoot Products Super Sander is a laser cut sanding disk. What makes this sanding disk unique is that it has notches cut in the disk to allow you to see through the disk. This gives better control of your sanding. I have seen these disks before but never had an opportunity to try one out until now. Bigfoot products was kind enough to send me one to test. The Standard Kit comes with two double sided disks. One side has a course grit and the other a medium grit. The kit includes everyt...

The Rules of Work

11-23-2014 03:30 AM by Alan | 2 comments »

This is just a list of rules that I have either come across or thought of for myself that I need to keep in mind at all times when (trying to) do fine woodworking. This list is mostly for my own reference, and in no way to be considered exhaustive, but rather to be added to and updated as I continue to learn. If you fine folks reading it have suggestions to add, or strongly disagree with something I have on here, feel free to leave a comment! I’m here to learn. 1. Keep grain orie...
