How to Make Perfect Miter Joints

12-13-2010 11:54 PM by Bob Simmons | 3 comments »

It could be said that miter joints are definitely one of the most common joints in woodworking or carpentry. This is a joint that we are taught early on in our apprenticeships because we will be cutting miters throughout our entire career. As an apprentice it sounds simple enough to just cut a left 45 and a right 45 and glue then together to form a 90. If it were so simple then why are there open miter joints? Let’s take a look at how we can make perfect miter joints. View the comple...

mini gloat

Did pretty well on Kijiji (a buy/sell web site) this week.First was a National 4 inch jointer/planer. In need of a little TLC and a motor (which I already have on hand) but it was only $20. Second was some sheets of 4 mm Baltic birch plywood, 60 by 30 inches, for $6 a sheet. Not a bad day.

Owning your own business (Post # 10) How I make my beds.

12-13-2010 08:49 PM by nate22 | 1 comment »

Cutting Out The Pieces.Good afternoon Lumberjocks. It has been awhile since my last blog. I have decide to share how I make my loft beds. I will share, and show you the first step in the process of making them. This is the first time I have decided to use hardwood to. I am making this loft bed out of soft maple. After using hardwood I don’t even what to use pine again. Hardwood is much easier to work with. But here is a few pictures of the cut out pieces. Most of the pieces in t...

The amazing talent

12-13-2010 06:42 PM by brolga | 5 comments »

I am new to posting on anything, let alone a community as large as this. I have been registered for several months and am amazed at the number of talented and creative people out there. I love the site and will figure how to post a picture of something I have done before too long. I am about to begin a rocking horse for my new grandson. It is a little crafty rather than artsy but well worth the effort…

The Old Made New #2: Updates on the workshop

12-13-2010 05:42 PM by Jurg | 0 comments »

Well, I’m very late in my posting the latest in the tools journey, but I did indeed move the last of the family tools into my shop. I ended up letting go of one or two, a metal working lathe in need of tlc and a user better suited to that craft, rather than me relegating it to small time woodwork, it is now being used by a father and son who do metalworking together, a fitting home. The proceeds went into buying a Rikon Mini vs lathe, which suites my needs perfectly. And sadly the bands...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #193: Getting "Unstuck" by Changing Gears

12-13-2010 01:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I really like when I get so involved in doing a project that I can’t wait to get up in the morning to get at it. Today was one of those days. After feeling kind of stuck for a while on what to do for someone special on my list, I finally got the idea on Saturday and since then it has grown like a well cared for seed and looks like it is going to be turning out to be a pretty cool project. I decided to paint a wooden sewing box for a friend of mine who loves to do counted cross stit...

Glue Joints #1: Spring vs. Straight

12-13-2010 01:05 PM by Bruce | 16 comments »

Greetings. I have been watching Norm for 25 years or so. He always jointed board edges to get a perfectly straight glue joint. Marc Spagnuolo (sp?) on The Wood Whisperer seems to do the same. I have not had any problems with my straight joints. Recently, I have been watching Tommy Macdonald due to the new show Rough Cuts. He uses something called a spring joint where, after the boards are jointed straight, he uses a hand plane to create a slight dip in both boards. When this joint is c...

A case for spraying finishes #1: Spraying Finishes, Lacquer and Gravity Feed HVLP

12-13-2010 10:24 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments » You will use much less material because the transfer efficiency is higher. 2. Less noxious overspray.3. Better finish with no orange peel. Actually it is glass smooth, and seems almost automatic to get perfect results. 4. If you accidentally run the cup out of finish, it just quietly stops spraying. Compare this to the sputtering mess created by a siphon gun. 5. Two...

Merry Christmas

12-13-2010 07:42 AM by janice | 19 comments »

I know I haven’t been around much lately. It’s been tough for me, some of you know that. Just wanted to say I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas this year. It’s been great getting to know all of you. After X-mas I hope to be back in the shop. Not sure yet if I’m painting this winter or building something. I have so much I want to do. That stupid little thing called my job just keeps getting in the way of things. My husband started our boat dock. I’m hop...
