Useful jigs for your shop #3: small mortise hinge jig for boxes etc.

12-02-2010 12:53 AM by Bob #2 | 10 comments »

I’ve been struggling with fitting brass hinges into softer woods that I seem to work with today against my better judgment.By the time I have the mortise cut for the hinge I find that usually a portion of the mortise has either fallen away, been crushed by my chisels, or a combination of both leaving an unsightly gash into which I have to place my hinge.I’ve been looking at this jig as outlined in ShopNotes volume #12 No. 74.From hinge jigFrom hinge jig From hinge jigFrom hinge j...

Shop song of the day #14: 12/1/10

12-01-2010 11:02 PM by Raftermonkey | 5 comments »

Widespread Panic, Holden Oversoul. One of my favorite Panic tunes off all time. Not the best quality so if you have external speakers, now would be a great time to plug em in. Mikey brings some heat a little after the 3 min mark.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #181: Poinsettia Candle Tray

12-01-2010 02:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Sometimes I have to laugh at myself when I look back and read the goals I set out for myself in any given day. I think if I ever actually achieved all I set out to do, I would be labeled “superwoman”. I don’t think it is necessarily bad to set our goals high. When my kids were young, I used to tell them “If you reach your goals, you are setting them too low”. Now I was only kidding when I said that, and I made sure they knew it, but I can’t help but thi...

Bench Utilities #1: Finally making a bench hook and others

12-01-2010 05:37 AM by mpmitche | 2 comments »

I have been working with all my new (read antiques that I have been cleaning up) hand tools for a few months with some pretty makeshift work holding devices. Starting a few days ago I have finally had a chance to start working on a few bench top helpers. I think I have enough MDF and scraps to make a bench hook with a planing stop for small work and to help with some chisel work, a bench hook for cross cutting (will add a miter too) and a shooting board. Having these helpers should make wo...
