"Tips", from my shop work #8: installing deer antlers for drawer pulls

09-24-2016 09:39 PM by hobby1 | 2 comments »

The client supplied deer antlers to use for his drawer pulls, this is video documenting a technique of making a template board for alignment and drilling perpendicular to the antler, as well as using it to mark out hole locations on the drawer front, and finally installing an antler, than while the antler is fastened to the drawer front, then drill a support standoff hole perpendicular to the antler, for extra top support in the pull. ..........................

bathroom cabinet #1: Progress!

09-28-2016 03:00 AM by McFly | 0 comments »

Neighbor asked if I’d consider making a pullout cabinet for her newly remodeled bathroom. Came up with a sketch she liked and ran with it. The shelves are genuine mahogany with maple & wenge accent dots, and the large side panel is cherry and maple. Took awhile to get this far working weekends and before/after work and I still have quite a long ways to go. I believe these pics should be in chronological order beginning with the roughly dimensioned shelves getting dominoes and end...

Shop Sweet Shop #4: Compressor Line Install

09-30-2016 07:09 PM by magaoitin | 2 comments »

When last we left our intrepid contractor, the walls were framed, power was on, insulation was underway, and he had a mild case of gas. Now was time for compressed air line to be installed.This posed a couple of challenges. The existing corner post for the structure are 6×6’s with a 2×6 on edge between it and the exterior metal panels. That leaves only around 1”, to maybe 1-1/2”, space to install a 1/2” or 3/4” pipe and an elbow, around a blind corner. I had already decided t...

I probably shouldn’t have posted the other pictures in “Projects”, I feel like I’m adding drama to the ‘off topic’ posters, but….Here it is.

Hope Chest for Daughter #2 #8: Back at it...

10-09-2016 10:17 PM by Mainiac Matt | 8 comments »

I’ve finally wrapped up my last interfering project and have cleared the decks for action to get back into this project… My intention is to work it until completion… Broke out the raised panel set and reviewed my plans… Then I sorted my stock, selected boards for the long rails, cut off the checked ends, cut them to 3/4” over sized, and set up the style bit on my router table…. I used 13,000 rpm on the router (Porter Cable 3HP VS) and it cut eff...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #15: How often do you rearrange your shop?

03-23-2012 03:52 PM by StumpyNubs | 24 comments »

If your shop doesn’t have a comfortable corner with a chair and a place to sit and look upon your woodworking domain, you should find a new hobby. There is one thing that I like to do more than make sawdust, and that’s sit back in my chair and look at all the tools and benches and piles of wood. I feel like the king of a wooden kingdom where I can choose which piece of oak lives, and which one gets brutally cut in half. I am all powerful and I have an army of machines to protect m...

Testing: Table Saw setup for Half Lap Joint

04-05-2012 12:46 AM by Joe Lyddon | 7 comments »

Testing: Table Saw setup for Half Lap Joint I cut a piece of good hardwood scrap to about 3/4” x 4” x 11” I measured 5” from one end & marked with knife. I measured 10” from same end & marked with knife. Knife-cut lines all the way around the board at each 5” point. Labeled things to make it look nice. I had cutoffs from the same piece of hardwood for testing the cuts. ============================================= Proceeded t...

Hot Hide Glue Experimentation #1: Prep and First Try

10-18-2016 01:17 PM by Lazyman | 2 comments »

I posted a forum topic recently asking about the best way to attach some veneer to a project I am planning and one of the recommendations was to use hot hide glue (HHG). I’ve seen posts before from fellow LJs about how much they like using HHG and have been meaning to to give it a try so I decided this was a good excuse. I will share my journey in this blog. Step 1: Research. I spent a couple of days understanding the history, uses, pros and cons, tools and techniques. Of course...
