David's [aka Patron] double curve..my version of the jig? #1: Where to start? The Table!

06-10-2009 10:07 AM by degoose | 19 comments »

I have spent the last few days in the workshop working out how to make this jig.. and have it durable and repeatable and totally accurate and easy to use.Actually this jig can be used for two different projects … well probably more that two but thats all I have used it for so far.To start, I had to build a table to go over the bandsaw table for the jig to pivot on. [double pivot actually][two pivots two pics right!! ]The table was made from 5/8” [15mm] plywood, with silver ash us...

Step-back Cupboard Build #3: More gluing and starting on some dovetails

06-10-2009 05:36 AM by rwyoung | 3 comments »

More panel gluing! Got a blank made for one of two upper shelves. Also completed the blank for the bottom shelf and the top of the cabinet. These are important as they set the width. The top will be dovetailed (half blind) to the two sides. The bottom rides in two dados. I’ll cut the bottom to final size after the dovetails are done and fitted. I’m by no means an expert at hand cutting dovetails. Or machine cutting them for that matter. I can do both and I have on occas...

Wife's Anniversary & Mother's Day Present (Post #1)

06-10-2009 03:51 AM by ND2ELK | 11 comments »

My wife wanted to get her garden tilled and planted. It was during the time I was laid up after my foot surgery. I have a good friend who is a woodworker but had not made any cabinets. So we decided to barter and help each other. He tilled the garden, put in 16 posts and ran rabbit wire so the wife could start planting her garden. In exchange, I designed his kitchen, gave him drawings, cutting lists and a BOM for the kitchen he wanted to build. The first picture is the work my friend di...

Dresser Rehab #1: A Pink Beginning

06-10-2009 03:18 AM by gregb | 3 comments »

I picked up this dresser thanks to craigslist.com~~ free section. As you can see the previous owner dreiced to pain the whole thing PINK!!! The construction is solid and the dovetails are still tight, whick is always a plus. This picture is of the sides. You can see that there is an additional panel that I haven’t decided whether or not I’m gonna keep it. Any thoughts here would be greatly appreciated. As far as my plans I am going to take off the olf v...

06-10-2009 02:00 AM by bobbo1963 | 5 comments »

I am beginning to set up a small wood shop on limited budget. Thier are two used table saws that cought my eye. One is a King with round guides for the fence, 2 hp 220 motor about 10 – 12 years old. The other is a Rigid, 1 hp larger working surface and I think a better fence. It is about 5 years old.What is more important, the fence and guide or the size of the motor?

Finished the Research and Making a WorkBench! #6: Dead Men may have a tale to tell

06-10-2009 01:34 AM by RichClark | 0 comments »

The dead man for this bench (its an Aide to hold the bottom of your stock to help when your working on it) fits in the front of the table. Ill cover making the rail for it next time but if your going to add it later it will be painful. You need it to float between the lower stretcher and the top.. to do that you mill it with a tongue on the inside and a “track” on the bottom.. the top looks like and “L” and the bottom like a inverted “V”. this lets you r...

Setting Up Shop #1: Introduction

06-09-2009 11:23 PM by stidrvr | 2 comments »

Hello everyone! As my first attempt to contribute to LumberJocks.com, I figured I’d start of with my shop setup, or lack there of. Curently I reside in the basement, although nice in the winter, the stairs do not play well with others. Some people may think I’m crazy going from a basement shop to a garage shop in Wisconsin. Like I said the stairs are the biggest problem. Right now the garage in question currently holds most of the outdoor stuff. Since the garage is a 3 car, ...
