Exposed Finger Joint Box #3: The Lid

02-22-2017 08:28 PM by splintergroup | 7 comments »

The lid is the most “visible” part of these boxes. I’ve been making mitered frames with panel centers. Some times a mirror on the inside, other times I use veneer. Options would be to make a panel similar to the base or choose another arrangement that draws the eye. For this box, I chose a veneered panel with a mitered frame. As with the base, the dimensions of the inside of the top frame are identical to the dimensions of the box body interior (6” x 8R...

Shop storage projects #23: Chisel dresser: final details done

02-22-2017 05:44 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Just about wrapped this project up. Had to set it up on the bench.. Had to measure for a kicker for the bottom drawer… Glue and a couple screws to hold it in place. Measured for a plywood back… Again, glue and screws. Started applying cleats to hold the top in place… Then added the top… No glue, just enough screws to hold things still, is all. Couple at each end. added this cleat ( on the wrong side, at that) to hold the shelf support in ...

Exposed Finger Joint Box #2: The base

02-22-2017 05:44 PM by splintergroup | 1 comment »

The base of this box is where anyone can “go wild” with design options. The basics are simple, a frame with lap joints, filled with a plywood panel. The feet are simple squares. A pdf file with dimensions for the base can be found here The design allows for the base to have 1/2” of exposure along its perimeter with the box, basically it aligns flush with the boxes inside dimensions.A felt covered plywood piece fits into a routed shelf to seal off the box bottom. Th...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #18: Final Stages on This Tool Cabinet

02-22-2017 05:31 AM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

Today I glued and clamped the poplar breadboard ends to the the top plywood plate as well as the 3/8 inch thick trim around the base plate to cover its plies. Tomorrow I will need to trim the sides of this breadboard top. I will do that at my Saw Stop or I may use my #6 WoodRiver bench plane. We’ll see what will work best; maybe both. After I completed the steps listed above I determined my next step would be to resaw the large Sapele plank. I calculated that about 1/4 inch th...

Dust Collection #4: Dust Collection #4

02-22-2017 01:29 AM by Roger | 6 comments »

Going on with a few more additions for collecting that nasty dust, is this nice clear acrylic lathe dust collection hood from PennStInd, that I upgraded my old cardboard box “alligator”.... you can find it here: https://www.pennstateind.com/store/DLHOODC2.html. It’s actually still “on-sale” for 20 bux…. Well worth it in my book. It works super well for turning pens, small spindles/handles, & things like that. You wouldn’t be able to use it whi...

It was made to comb mail #6: Next step: good setup ensures accurate positioning

02-22-2017 01:24 AM by Patternguy | 0 comments »

Part 6 After draft is applied and edge radii are added, the rib pieces are ready to be fit together. Spacer blocks are sanded to precise width with a draft angle that is opposite of the ribs. This type of draft is known as “back draft”. The spacers will maintain accurate dimensions between the ribs and to keep the vertical axis of each rib vertical, maintaining uniform draft on both sides. Unfortunately, I do not have an image of the next step, but I’ll ...

kitchen cabinets #3: Weekend # 3 dust collector about to give out.

02-22-2017 12:25 AM by MC | 1 comment »

I do not have much to post this weekend. Spent the entire weekend jointing and planing the lumber and I am still not done. I have about three more hours of work before I can start building. After three yard bags and one full trashcan can of sawdust my dust collector is near done. It was given to me and I got a couple of years out of it so no worries. Will pick one up in another week. I also solved the lack of space situation by renting a storage pod; anything not related to building cabin...

Venturing into Parts Unknown - Hand Tool/Plane Storage #2: Slow and steady progress

02-21-2017 08:09 PM by rhybeka | 6 comments »

Besides that this is my first foray into hand tools, I’d say it’s going fairly well. I decided to build a false front so the planes would rest at an angle. I changed the layout from the original a bit. I was leaning all of the planes in to take a picture, and the #4 decided to fall out. Luckily I was there to catch it, and there’s a couch directly beneath the till. This concerned me a bit though for obvious reasons. I’m planning on putting 3 rare earth magnets under th...
