Yars ago I had a small wood working shop but had to sell everything for personal reasons. Now, 15 years later I live in a small apartment. I want to build a coffee table. Someone tell me what to do please…...........
Curved Panels - adding another dimension to woodworking. #5: Putting it all together - a simple curved door.
Now that the panel is made (in this case 2 layers of 1/8” bender), it needs to be covered with the appropriate wood. In this case it is cherry and I didn’t have any veneer wide enough to span the panel, so I had to bookmatch two sheets. You need to have a special tape to hold the panels together through the glue-up process. You also need to have a special cold press glue to bond the veneer to the curved panels. You can get both at Joe Woodworker. BTW – He has a new pr...
As I’m heading down to my basement at almost 2 in the morning (or is it almost 3? damned daylight savings time) to un-clamp one glue-up and clamp another I can only marvel at my own procrastination. I don’t know how many times over the years that I’ve wished I had more clamps or I’ve had many parts ready for gluing at one time but had to do them sequentially (spelled it right after only two tries) due to a shortage of clamps. Throughout those years I’ve bought ...
Home Depot had their kids workshop again and I took my daughter. The project was a race car track, it sure was neat. This time i got there early enough for my daughter to get an apron.
Ok—I’m not going to argue the virtues of the dust collection in modern psychosis treatment . . . but my therapy session is all about cutting up wood. Hmm . . . I’m on the Lumberjocks site so I guess I’m in the right place. :-) My first order of business was making sure I was properly protected. I was cutting the wood outside to boot on a nice windy day . . . that helped. Gotta love 70 degree days! (I’m smiling under that dust mask!) The first ord...
So I’m working on a box, just a small box and I’d planned on doing dovetails and the whole 9 yards. But my dads old craftsman router crapped out. In the next coming months i’m looking to pick up a more modern and sturdy router. The most bang for my buck. Honestly I don’t know much about this market. Do i go with a PorterCable router and just get the most amperage/hp router i can afford?? So yeah if anybody out there has a recommendation on a good soild router totally s...
To download a measured drawing or to see the full photo gallery, click here:http://www.eaglelakewoodworking.com/post/Super-Sled-Crosscut-and-Miter-Sled.aspx Project Description: I just completed a two part video series on how I made my new table saw sled. I’ve named the new sled the “Super Sled”. The Super Sled combines two of my best shop jigs! I love my original crosscut sled, so when the voters at Eagle Lake asked me to make a video about how to make that s...
So brief background is that about a 18 months ago, I bought a load of lumber off ebay. While there, I ended up also buying 350 BF of flatsawn white ash for $100. I figured, even if it ends up being ‘test’ pieces and shop projects, it would still be worth it. Fast forward to recently, and I’ve been planning to build a new bench, and I’ve pretty much decided on a Roubo. I picked up the lovely Benchcrafted tail/wagon vise, a german bench screw, and some holdfasts. ...
This is take #2 on my dust collection ductwork install. Here is the link to my initial blog on this project: “DC-Take #1” http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/Lenny/blog/7465. First, a recap. The space I chose to locate my dust collector (DC) left it in the middle of the 6” ductwork, which I installed at ceiling level. This meant I needed a joint (fitting) that allowed the two sides to meet and enter the separator and DC. I couldn’t find an appropriate 6” fitting but found a 4” doubl...
I’m getting ready to finally wrap this up. I finished the tops and made Drawer runners and kickers. Here is a jpg of the top from the sketchup model. I milled up the kickers then glued and screwed them to the sides of the case. I also drilled holes for mounting the top. I made some drawer runners and screwed them to the drawer member. The front of the runner is dadoed into the front of the drawer with a half lap. Note the taper on the front of the slot for easy ...
