Box making Curved Front Box #5: Cutting the box open

11-13-2013 07:14 AM by robscastle | 5 comments »

Well so much for wanting to cut the box open with my bandsaw. I realised the sides were too big and the curved face blew it out to 297mm. So it was onto the table saw. there goes Critical priority no 2 I fitted the thinnest kerf blade I had and away I went. Cutting a box open using various planes is usually a candidate for a mess, let alone making a series of cuts as I raised the blade, but I managed to get it started and finished at the same point miracles do occur! ...

Alcoveman needs rest in his nest… Alcove for the new work shop, when I got my work shop app a year ago, I decided that it would be nice to have a place to crash and also to rest when I had a day with neck pains.So when I saw a pile of old windows in the street, I brought them to the shop and started putting things together.

in the workshop #3: Bench organization

01-07-2014 05:36 PM by Loren | 2 comments »

This took many years to collect and then a lot of timeto organize it all so I can find most of the stuff I use pretty quick. The volume and variety of sundriesI’ve found uses for surprises me. Collecting them saves a lot of trips to a hardware store. Rolls of tape are stored overhead on the handlesof a couple of big handscrews clamped to an overheadrack loaded up with mouldings and lumber. The picture below shows a little shelf I built someyears ago for drills and chargers. ...

Jointer-jointer-planer-table saw Flat face – square and flat edge – parallel and flat opposite face – parallel square and flat opposite edge When ripping I was only taking a skim cut to minimize loss of width. This can be really messy with most of the sawdust blowing back on me, so I set up the shop vac with a funnel to catch most of it…. I stickered...
