Secret Soss: A simple Soss hinge jig #4: Adding a precision fence: ready to use

09-06-2010 05:57 AM by newTim | 4 comments »

The fence sits underneath the templates and is used to register the jig against the back of the box and securely clamp the jig to the box. The Soss 203 requires a 1/8” space between the back of the hinge and the back of the box. Since the hinge is 1/2”, the centerline of the hinge must be 3/8” from the back. It is important that the fence be square to the template otherwise the hinges, hence the box lid, will be crooked. I cut a piece of 3/4” plywood about the widt...

Almost Done With The Base

09-05-2010 11:27 PM by Clay Ortiz | 3 comments »

The other day I got a call from a buddy of mine named Von Hatcher. Von used to sell framing lumber back when I framed houses. Anyway, he said he went to work for Suawnee Lumber and that I should come check it out. I had some time Friday so I did. While I was there drooling over all that lumber, I got to talking to another customer there. It turned out he was a fellow lumber jock and was following this blog!! I thought that was really cool! Hopefully, my new buddy Ryan and I can get together a...

The wood we are using is light walnut for the 12 staves, dark walnut for the 12 vertical spacers, and ribboned mahogany for the base. The challenge we face is gluing all 24 segments at one time. For this project we need to be dead-on accurate and focuse...

SPIRAL DESIGN #5: A new wood contrast... Narra to Eucalyptus

09-05-2010 02:23 PM by BertFlores58 | 6 comments »

I recently found an old name stand (the one in the office where the name of the person and position is carved and put on his table for easy identification). A eucalyptus but very tight grain. What I like is the color. It is a pale yellow and will be a very nice contrast with red Narra. I was planning to use a pine tree specie for the white or yellow color but it is too soft and I don’t want to combine it with all those hardwood. I had already spent a long and tedious work on this an...
