Hello All, RTB, who hangs out here a bunch, asked me a good question in the comments for my blog. So I decided to write tonight’s blog in response to his query about Henry Wood. http://su.pr/1z8FXr

Karen's Table #1: New Saw

11-29-2010 04:01 AM by Safetyboy | 4 comments »

My new tenon saw arrived the day before Thanksgiving… just in time to try out on the tenons for my sister’s table. Never had I hand-cut tenons before – I always did them on my tablesaw with a dado blade – but these stretchers were really too long to do that easily for me. So I dived in – and surprisingly, everything went together pretty well: The saw is a 16” Wenzloff & Sons, and I have to say, despite the old “it’s not the arr...

Christmas Boxes #2: Assembly

11-29-2010 03:31 AM by Zuki | 0 comments »

I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Two sided tape to hold the sides together for cutting. Sides stuck together and marked for cutting. Front part of the box cut from the sides. I used the BS as it removed the lease amount of material. Back laid in place. Sides and back attached. Front of the box assembled. Test fitting the front. 3/4” brass hinges & most of the pieces for the drawers.

Shop-made Jigs and Fixtures #1: Jig to expand the cross-cut length of Incra TS-LS fence

11-29-2010 02:56 AM by Mark Colan | 1 comment »

[I think there should be a separate forum for Jigs, Customizations, and Accessories made by Lumberjocks… one in which there is enough information presented to make one like it. Until I figure out how to suggest it, I’ll start a blog series for my own.] The Problem, and Developing a Solution In revamping my table saw, I needed a shelf under the right-side extension table which is almost as big as the table itself, about 44×26”. I offer this axiom: your extension ...

Contemporary Cross project #3: Initial cuts of interior parts

11-29-2010 02:48 AM by kevinw | 0 comments »

We are now ready to begin sawing out our components. By hot gluing the two boards together this allows us to cut two identical pieces of each part so that they will fit properly. Note that I am only sawing out the interior shapes of the cross at this point. This will allow me to have better control when re-gluing. Here the vertical piece has been cut out. Keep in mind that you must get the best cut possible. Be sure your blade is narrow enough that it can saw the curves without backing up ...

#1 Phillipine mahogany & bubinga box, how I made it.

11-29-2010 02:24 AM by TheHarr | 3 comments »

These are my original design ideas for making my jewelry boxes. These diagrams may be a little confusing because I did not intended for them to be published. You guys are so nice, I had no choice but to share. This design was prevously used for making cigar humidors. I don’t have good pictures of them—sorry. I have lots of detailed instructions for every step to make this box. Just ask and I’ll add more to this blog. The rough cut diagram shows the sequence t...

Top Secret....Rocker for my Wife #2: BUSTED!!!

11-29-2010 01:40 AM by bues0022 | 6 comments »

So much for trying to keep this top secret! My wife checked my email account from my phone last night when we were driving back from Thanksgiving. She was a bit curious about what this Top Secret project was all about. I tried minimizing the damage by admitting that: “I was thinking of building one, but said that I don’t have nearly the ability to make it. The thread was just feeling it out, and it bombed on me.” She seemed to buy the excuse for now. And to make sure this do...

Top Secret....Rocker for my Wife #1: Taking the plunge!

11-29-2010 01:38 AM by bues0022 | 1 comment »

I’ve been posting lots of questions for about a week now, emailing and messaging fellow Lumberjocks, and I’ve finally started my project so I thought I’d blog about it to keep track of my project. Progress may not be the quickest, but I’ll post what I run into along the way – the good, the bad, and the ugly! My wife and I are thinking about finally starting a family. I just finished graduate school, got a job, and she’ll be done with her doctorate also in a few months. She has always wante...

Built-In Bed #7: Paint and Pumpkin Pie

11-29-2010 01:37 AM by Scott R. Turner | 1 comment »

Work on the built-in slowed to a crawl as we got to a serious painting phase. The painting sub-contractor started out enthusiastically, but after an initial coat of primer was nowhere to be found. It’s so hard to find good help these days. I had to take over the painting—not my favorite activity but these panels are actually fairly easy to paint. In this photo, the customer dropped in for an impromptu inspection. She approved of the quality of the painting, especially w...

Wheelchair Woodworking #7: Helping Hands part three Taking

11-28-2010 11:57 PM by Jamie Speirs | 8 comments »

The takingI think this is one of the hardest parts. Is it that we don’t like taking? Maybe it is a matter of pride, accepting help even when it might not be needed by ourselves. I needed to realise that others also have a need to give and if they cant allow them give, we are being selfish. I continually use bearings, might be a dust thing or perhaps I’m just a bit to rough on my wheelchairs. I normally just buy new bearings on line. It is quick and easy. So when I needed some bearings for ...
