One For The FILE CABINET.

01-15-2009 11:54 PM by Emeralds | 2 comments »

Here’s another project I took on in hopes of challenging myself to step-up my game by trying things I had not yet tried. This piece involved a lot of very small mortise and tenon joints, a type of joinery with which I had little experience, having never cut a true “hidden” mortise and having employed only thru tenons which I produced exclusively with the aid of my trusty power tools. This design however called for twenty six “mini” MT joints ( ¼”-x- ¾” tenons) that needed to be cut by hand. N...

Rockin' Ride #5: Finishing and final assembly

01-15-2009 06:27 AM by kshipp | 2 comments »

Refers to project posted here. The dry fit passed inspection from my quality inspector so it was time to move on to finishing. I disassembled it to three major components and put on Minwax Dark Walnut Stain. Of course I did this on my finishing/pool table. You can see the unstained head sitting on the table also. I installed the handle in the head with glue and two finish nails through the edge to hold it steady. I am using Waterlox Original Medium as a sealer and it’...

Rockin' Ride #4: Assembly Process

01-15-2009 05:04 AM by kshipp | 0 comments »

Refers to project posted here. I used the Kreg screw system for most of the joinery on this project. This is my second major project (first one here) using this system and I have found them to be very strong. It’s also very quick to join pieces with this system which helped me do this project in only 4 days exclusive of some of the finishing. This was also my first time using the Kreg plugs which I’ve started a forum topic on here. I always get to the end of the build an...

Ash Dinning Table #3: Legs, Apron, Attached Breadboard Ends

01-15-2009 04:13 AM by TimberMan | 2 comments »

It’s been a bit busy at work the past few weeks but was able to get a little time in the shop this past weekend. I got to test out my new JFM-5 mortise and absolutely love it. It made cutting the mortise a piece of cake. After cutting them I cleaned up the bottom of the mortises and then off to the tenons. Since I had to cut tenons on the 8’ long apron I took the opportunity to make a miter sled out of some scrap birch plywood and MDF that I had on hand. I also, finally, sp...

There was a lot of interest in meeting up with each other at the show in February so I thought a separate blog for that event only was a good idea.

Around the shop #8: Geeking out

01-14-2009 10:44 PM by dsb1829 | 4 comments »

Well, what’s new there. Check this outGrizzly Shop PlannerIt is a fun little flash layout tool designed to help you figure out where you can stuff more tools in your shop. It can also be used for home layout as well. Fun stuff. Very quick and easy. Here is what I worked out from memory on my shop. What else is new?I managed to sand off the tip of my thumb again. Seems like every time I have to prep a new blade for a plane that I end up sanding off a bunch of skin. I haven&...

Tips #2: Sharp Enough

01-14-2009 07:54 PM by drknoxy | 4 comments »

So 1/2” thick glass is like 30$, and the 1/8” glass they sell at home depot and lowes cracks real easily (personal experience), but MDF with laminate on all sides is 6$. I gave it a quick test run for lapping the soles of my #5, #4 stanley planes last night and it worked wonders. I think I have to pick up a different kind of spray adhesive though, the one I’m using leaves me sticky but not the paper… it is just normal sandpaper, the wet or dry is expensive and only ...

Secret Bookends

01-14-2009 06:58 PM by KnickKnack | 3 comments »

Some thoughts on secret compartments can be found in another blog I wrote on a rainy day (spoiler alert – of no educational value). Just some pics during work… Router out what’s going to be the hidden compartment… Once it’s glued together, router out the sliding dovetail – not easy with no router table, but this is what i came up with… Cut the other half of the dovetail in what’s going to be the base… As always, ...
