Shop done. Let's build something #2: Cabinet framed

1965 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 2 comments »

Ok, My first cabinet. I decided on loose tenon joinery. I discovered a site for a good jig that was easy to make and it seems to work. I’ve got all my oak jointed/cut/and planed. Today I made my mortises with router and jig and glued up the front face of the cabinet. This cabinet will be a corner cabinet 42” tall and about 25 wide on the face. it will have two ogee raised panel doors. Next up will be the back of the cabinet. Not too much of an issue as it won’t show. I’...

whats your opinion?

1965 days ago by JoshO | 5 comments »

I am going to make a box type pool cue case and I can’t decide what type of wood I want to make it out of. I will be looking for 2 pieces at 5/4 or 4/4 about ~30 inches long. Currently I plan on pocket milling the inside and lining with some kind of foam. I know this can be very basic or exotic, and I am looking for ideas for wood type. The real question would be, if you were to make one, what would you make it out of?

Small Cabinet #11: Started the finish on the last parts. (minus the top)

1965 days ago by Betsy | 3 comments »

No pictures this time. I laid my camera down somewhere and I’ve not yet located it – it’s probably will all the pencils I loose having a cook out or something. Any how, I got the feet, the door parts and the drawer front all cleaned up and ready to finish. I’ve put the first coat on and can’t wait for it to dry so I can go onto to the next step. I didn’t like the top that I made, so I’ve chosen new pieces and have got that clamped up. The first ...

Prospecting for Wood #5: Latest Haul

1965 days ago by Paul | 2 comments »

Stopped by the burn pile a couple times this past week and cut away boards until my two batteries ran down (about an hour total). Spent a couple of hours this morning cleaning them up a bit. (Be careful that you get all the nails out & I did this time.) Left to right: Poplar, White Oak and Red Oak . . . The Poplar was somewhat of a mystery in the rough form at the burn pile. But there were some large, fairly clear pieces to be had. So I cut three or four out of the pile. Clea...

Curved Panels - adding another dimension to woodworking. #4: Easy Does It - curved panels without a vacuum press

1965 days ago by John8059 | 7 comments »

I couldn’t find any pictures to make this easier to demonstrate so I whipped up this: The object here is to demonstrate how a curved panel might be made without a vacuum press. A picture is supposed to be worth a 1,000 words so I’ll cut it short. The lighter-colored material in the center of the picture is supposed to be the end result. You will have to imagine that it is 2 or more layers of bender board (see #1 & 2 in the series). With this technique you will not w...

1965 days ago by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

BLERG! I bought these last weekend, 6 days ago now, for $40.

They weren’t on sale, but every 1/64” increment between 1/8” and 1/2”, and brad point as well? I Had to have them.

The Ultimate Tool Collection

1965 days ago by Quebecnewf | 10 comments »

In a village near where I live resides what I believe could be considered the greatest collection of tools ever amassed by one person in a lifetime. This tool collection consists of both old and new hand tools as well as a complete collection of all the power tools one could find in any shop. This guy started collecting tools at the age of 13 and continued throughout his life. He made a good living as a helicopter pilot and spent all he made collecting. He died at an early age from can...
