A carved lid box for my Daughter who loves Orangutans #2: Model to carving

12-15-2009 03:15 PM by wyeth | 3 comments »

! head as it will attach to sliding lid)! The reason I quickly found the need to model the carving in plasticine was that I had to see how the idea I had visualized could relate to the size and shape of the box. From the model I could take measurements of the size and shape that the blocks of yellow wood needed to be to accommodate the carving. Just to show the rough sketches used to determine the outside dimensi...

A carved lid box for my Daughter who loves Orangutans #1: The idea germinates

12-15-2009 09:39 AM by wyeth | 2 comments »

I have a new idea for the series of sliding lid boxes that I have been making for the girls for Christmas. So far I have completed four but my daughter is leaving for the Philippines and then Borneo just before Christmas and one reason is to fulfil a long dream of seeing Orang utans.My teenage grandson suggested I do an Orangutan for her box lid. I thought OK but how? First lets find some images and print them in monochrome off the net and then sketch a few images. The idea of a wh...

My Class Projects #1: The Toolbox

12-15-2009 08:57 AM by naterajj | 8 comments »

This is the main project of the Cerritos Community College Introduction to Woodworking class I used Walnut for most of it and Maple for the bottom. I tried a couple of variations on the recommended plan, giving it feet and a swiveling handle thanks to wedged Birch dowels. I need to sand and assemble the tray, which also uses Walnut and Maple, fix the handle which was a bit too loose, and put plugs to cover the screws.

Sawstop PCS: Unbox and Review #1: Taking off the Covers...

12-15-2009 06:38 AM by Morton | 9 comments »

I am the proud owner of a new Sawstop Professional Cabinet Saw (PCS). I picked it up just a couple of days ago from Brentwood Machinery in NH and brought it into the shop. It comes with the rails, T-glide fence and extension table. I went with the 36” rails as I have a smaller shop and I use a festool TS55 to break down larger sheet goods. I also opted for the mobile base to move it around when/if I need to. I just started opening the packaging today and was not disappointed ...

I would have never imagined that this site would have done so well, much less that we would be associated with such...
