Router Table Extension Wing #3: Adding some laminate

02-06-2011 06:03 PM by HungryTermite | 1 comment »

The top came out pretty flat. I trimmed it to size on the table saw and I realized it’s time to make a panel sled! The sides of the top are not perfectly square but they don’t really need to be for this project, however, I am going to build a sled before the next project that uses panels this size so I can cut them accurately. I cut the top undersized so I could add some maple edges. The edge is cut from 3/4” thick boards and after they are bonded on, the top will be sli...

I haven’t been in the shop since Thursday and even then only for a short time. You might know that I wasn’t happy with my first bucket attempt because the diameter I planned wasn’t happening. I will still finish that first bucket, but I started a new one hoping to come in on target this time. On Thursday I only had time to make up a bottom for the new ancient bucket, then I started fooling around trying out a new way to get the correct angles on the edges, but this time w...

02-06-2011 04:10 PM by steliart | 0 comments »

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #248: Assessing Information

02-06-2011 02:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I want to start out today by saying that I really do appreciate the comments about the scroll saws. I think that one of the best ways to decide which saw to go with is going to be by listening to others’ experiences with the different saws. I am sure that there are several saws that would be suitable for my needs, but with the number of choices out there, I think I will be able to find one that will work best for me and perform as I require it to. As I said before, the worse case ...

My Router Cabinet Upgrade #1: What it looks like and what I want to accomplish

02-06-2011 07:04 AM by Woodbutchery | 3 comments »

Years ago I built a large cabinet to hold my (then) new Jet table saw. The preliminary design of the cabinet was to give a long enough extension for the fence as well as eventually provide me with a router table. As with most projects, it took a while, but I eventually found a Freud router that would work with what I wanted, so I got the router, a router table plate from Rockler, and the template to match the place, and installed it. The cabinet was very raw in it’s design, thoug...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #13: Hickory Pulls

02-06-2011 06:15 AM by Don | 2 comments »

Yea, I know these are supposed to be made out of Ebony but I don’t cut anything out of ebony until I’ve practiced it a bunch with Hickory. It took a number of tries to get the drill press setup just right but this was otherwise pretty easy to make. Tommorrow I’ll attempt to make the real ones and if all goes well then my next blog will be titled “Ebony Pulls”, if not it will be titled “Screwup #2”...

Cello#4 back again

02-06-2011 01:34 AM by techyman2 | 6 comments »

High Folks, Its been a long time since I did the cello due to a mixture of dreadfull weather, work and family commitments but the journey continues.The back plate was glued up using fresh hide glue. It took about 2 hrs to accurately plane the edges square and get a good contact along the entire length of the joint. This joint is of absolute importance that it is done right, surface contact, glue consistency, etc. Normally on smaller instruments it is sufficient to rub the joint together and l...
