Atom #4: Good News, Bad News

11-26-2010 04:30 PM by BritBoxmaker | 23 comments »

My hands stopped shaking long enough for me to pluck up the courage to tell myself I didn’t need a jig, just zero clearance on the table saw blade and a piece of MDF to back up the rear end of the box.--Again please disregard the holes in what is just a previously enjoyed piece of MDF which is now being used for zero clearance. You might just see the saw blade peeking through the slot, by about 3/4 mm. Well the good news. It worked. I sawed all around with no mishap. Just a bare vene...

Christmas Gifts #1: The Toy Box

12-10-2010 02:06 PM by Marty Schlosser | 0 comments »

It all started out innocently enough. I had intended to make my youngest grandson a book shelf for Christmas, but after talking to his Mommy and Daddy, it was obvious that a toy box was needed more. “Toys everywhere” my daughter-in-law lamented; “A toy box would be very much appreciated”. So, a toy box it was. I asked her if she and my son could get back to me with the desired dimensions so I could get started. I already had a design in mind; an easy-peasey 1/2&#...

Palm Box (copy) #3: Lambs tongue stopped chamfers?

12-24-2010 07:14 AM by mpmitche | 3 comments »

My little palm box copy is in the clamps with the glue drying. The lid is close to being ready and will be finished when the glue dries. I have a couple things to decide on before I finish. I would really like to chamfer most of the edges and stop some of them with a lambs tongue. I’m a little nervous about this, for one I’ve never done it and two the purpleheart seems very brittle. If anyone has a good technique I’d love to hear it. I’m also a little nervous a...

Tools, Reviews, and my Website…

02-08-2011 03:53 AM by christopheralan | 4 comments »

I have been working hard at my website doing tool reviews and updates. I have almost all of my power and hand tools posted as pictures in my gallery. I am still trying to redesign the site to increase traffic and ease use. I find it interesting what other people are using in their shops and maybe others will want to look in my drawers too… I couldn’t resist. I spent most of my Friday night finding and loading pictures. I took a lot longer that I had wanted, but I made some good progr...

Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table #18: So that's what it'll look like...

02-27-2011 01:07 AM by DoctorDan | 1 comment »

The Anniversary table has been a long time in the coming. To check proportions and decide on final sizing and shaping I assembled the piece in our small courtyard. The shaker inspired modern table is a 2×1m trestle table with two benches capable of sitting eight comfortably. The benches will be assembled with long screws covered by ebony plugs – keeping the detail of the top. In the shaker design which uses 3/4” timber (cf. 1 1/2” timber in my piece) there...

Flea Market Find 2

03-09-2011 10:57 PM by joseff | 10 comments »

It’s been a while since I found anything of interest at the local saturday flea market. Although every trip is somewhat exciting for me, since I bought the Millers Falls drill a few months ago. I am still amazed at the thought of, and of actually, using a tool that is half a century older than I am. Around two weeks ago we decided to visit again just to look around. Me and my girlfriend were chatting about the things she bought when I saw a fine looking knob jutting out from a pil...

new ideas #5: finally

04-03-2011 11:18 PM by JoeyG | 1 comment »

Well I finally made enough progress on the bedroom and half bath remodel that I have had a chance to sneak off into my shop to start a couple projects and make a little saw dust. I started 2 of the 5 eye glass boxes and while doing so I have begun to narrow down the design on the laptop trays I have in mind. I have a couple of pics here of the beginnings of the boxes This one is for my son. It is just the glue up for the top. It is walnut and blood wood This one is for my wife....
