The EZ mitre technique

07-26-2010 10:55 PM by BritBoxmaker | 79 comments »

Hello all. Well I seem to have whet the appetite a bit so here goes for a ‘novel’ technique for making mitred boxes. Its a bit like making a box out of paper, like they showed you at school, using a ‘net’. Only in 3D, with wood and a tablesaw (not sissors). Well first comes the board Its made from alternating strips of Maple and Rosewood of varying thickness. I won’t bore you with the details on how to make it suffice to say that all the corners must b...

07-26-2010 08:13 PM by Bob Simmons | 9 comments »

One of the beautiful aspects of woodworking is that there are so many facets to the craft. Marquetry is one of these woodworking crafts that requires just basic woodworking tools and is well with the reach for all of us. The primary shop tools used for this wood project are the scroll saw, table saw, and the band saw. The hardwoods selected for this project came from a number of wood species that were in the scrap bin. Selected woods for this woodworking project include hickory, maple,...

These days, it’s getting harder and harder to find them.My point, though, has to do with my surprise at finding myself defending and promoting new technology to ...

Krenov books on Cabinetmaking

07-26-2010 06:12 PM by Shopsmithtom | 7 comments »

Anyone who knows the name “Krenov”, knows that his books on cabinetmaking are not only valuable for woodworking as an activity, but valuable as an insight not only into his world, but also a study in a relationship with wood & the process of creating. As many of you know, he passed away last September at age 88. It was a sad event for those who know of him. I had a phone conversation with him (as it turned out) not long before he died. It was one of those things you always ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #53: "You Know, It Don't Come Easy"

07-26-2010 12:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Well, I’ve done it. I made it to the other side. Sitting here next to me on the table is the final pattern for the autumn catalog. The wood is prepped (a beautiful piece of 5/8” birch), the pattern is completed, and I all have to do is my favorite part of spending a couple of hours at the scroll saw and cutting it out and finishing it. That’s the easy part as any designer can tell you. It’s funny, but at 8:13 last night when the printer was spitting out the fina...
