Quick Tip: Box beam jointing on the table saw

04-08-2013 04:14 PM by JSB | 5 comments »

Just a quick tip. Use a box beam level to joint virtually anything on the table saw. I am using clamps to secure the legs of my blanket chest in this example but you can easily tape a warped board to the level (make sure its not going anywhere) to get a perfect edge every time. Check out this short 36 second clip.

Empire Console Table Gilding #4: Finishing up the console table

07-06-2013 08:30 PM by Patricelejeune | 3 comments »

So I am finally done with the console table. Here were the last days of work After water gilding, like usual burnishing, sorry about the quality of the picture Instacoll on the capitals as I could not water gilt them without flooding the original finish. It is a bit like oil gilding, but has the shine of water gilding. Green clays on the feet, light layers then darker and darker to create an effect with some wear. A little extra wear then some repair to get the right f...

Tool Tip #8: Plastic spring hand Clamps

10-23-2013 09:05 AM by robscastle | 8 comments »

These clamps are in just about every shop, and are useful for all sorts of applications. I was making some veneer inlay strips and decided to use them to clamp the work whilst the glue dried. Well to my surprise they began snapping in various areas. The failures ranged from the tip right back to the pivot point, very odd to say the least. As I had finished work for the day and I was about to bin them when I decided to dismantle them and make two sets from four. Well that wa...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #7: Dust free at last... well almost!

11-13-2013 11:58 PM by PhilBello | 6 comments »

(especially when I run my finger over the furniture, and asked if she has dusted today! :) ) So I thought it was about time I did something to ease the problem. I decided to use an Vac hose support devised by Jack Houweling you can see his video Here , it is ideal for the small workshop, where you haven’t got space for dedicate...
