Picture Frames: Mitered Half-Lap Joints #2: Test Cuts with Pine Scraps

09-26-2016 02:31 AM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

Before making the actual picture frame for my friend Bill, I decided to make the JIG and perform some tests cutting mitered half-lap joints. I had some pine 1 by 6 by 72 inches boards in my lumber racks. I jointed one edge flat and square to a surface. From that I ripped a width about 2 1/2 inches wide. There was enough tension in the board that it moved immediately. I decided to crosscut the six foot lengths into lengths that would give me a picture frame that would fit a 11 by 14 matted...

Shop stuff #58: Track for a circular saw

09-25-2016 11:37 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I needed a track saw to cut a slab to make a coffee table. So I made one. This is how I did mine. By using the table saw to cut a dado in the base, the track is as accurate as a table saw. View on YouTube

Shop Upgrades #24: Band Saw Fence Part 2

09-25-2016 11:14 PM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

Finished modified install of Kreg Band Saw Fence to my Craftsman 14” BS. Tried it out with good results :-) Originally I was going to build a extended table on top, but that would have lost me an inch of cutting height which was already close. A compromise for getting a really low priced BS. So far this unit seems to cover all of my needs++ But I’m only starting out with it. The issue I had with most after market fences is that they all bolted to the table such that I...

Blogging instead of Woodworking #29: Some Trim Carpentry for Fun

09-25-2016 06:07 PM by Douglas | 0 comments »

As a woodworker, do you either “woodworker” your way through home improvement projects, this making take four times longer, or do you try to “woodworker” help your contractor, probably much to their annoyance? Or, do you find a way to put in just the right amount of woodworker into these sorts of things. Here’a blog post about a recent porch/front steps re-do on my house that turned out really well…

HHS Wood 2 - Wall Cabinet #1: Building the casework

09-25-2016 02:55 PM by Tooch | 3 comments »

This blog posting is designed to take students in Wood Manufacturing 2 through the process of building a wall cabinet. The cabinet can be made with either plywood or hardwood, which will be determined by myself. Note: The final size will be slightly different; this blog was made while using a scrap piece slightly under-sized. To get started, obtain a piece of plywood from storage and head to the table saw. Safety glasses and a push stick will also be needed. Check that the table ...

Again with the Dutch tool chest... #5: Done! (almost)

09-25-2016 02:57 AM by Fraxinus | 8 comments »

Spent pretty much all day today finishing up the tool chest. I finished painting it and scrubbed everything with a green pad to blend in the paint. I really liked how the milk paint looked, so I decided against boiled linseed oil. It’s black black black, almost sucks in the light since there’s nearly no sheen. Some of the pictures make it look lighter and much chalkier than it does in person. After the paint was done, I reinstalled the hinges, this time taking great care to get...

Toy costruction #104: Power Wagon 6x6 building the cab

Been out in my back so been a slow go with this one.Here’s the beginning of the body work.Using oak and walnut for this build but the interior is cherry. To me they went about the body work in a strange round about way but should come out all right in the end.I thought they would look like coke bottles but look more like wine bottles to me.
