Quest for a bigger TV #5: Doors and Drawers

10-22-2010 04:42 PM by JBfromMN | 1 comment »

With the center unit constructed it was on to building the drawers and doors. The drawers were just plain maple boxes with simple table saw cut locking corners. Then faced with the oak fronts. The doors rails and stiles are all cut on the router table with the new Bit set my Dad purchased for me last Christmas. The panels of the doors are all glued up solid oak and cut slightly smaller than the opening. My wife got a kick out of the name that Rockler has for the little rubber pieces ...

Carving a carving knife #1: First attempt to make a carving knife

10-22-2010 04:38 PM by PaBull | 11 comments »

My second oldest daughter needs a birthday gift and I have only days to complete it. Don’t you love those last minute projects? She is into carving, but only has the carving set with the “end blades”. So why not build a carving knife. So last knight I started with a block of pallet wood, a rod of 3/16 brass and a sawzall blade.The shape I was going for is shown here: I took a sawzall blade and cut it in half with a sheet metal cutter. (this stuff is hard to cut) After ...

Electrolysis For Jappaning Removal?

10-22-2010 04:29 PM by BradJacob | 9 comments »

I’ve seen a lot of electrolysis to remove rust from iron. In the examples, I’ve seen the paint come off. I’m restoring hand-planes and wondering why the Jappaning will not come off, while some other paints (in you tube videos) seem to fall right off – with electrolysis? Will electrolysis remove the jappaning, or just “regular” paints?

Tool Tutorials #2: Frog and Cap Iron Adjustment Part 2 - The cap iron

10-22-2010 02:28 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

I have ordered 3 planes, so far, that were used. Of those three, only one didn’t arrive with the iron almost fully extended. I don’t see planes at garage sales any more, but when I did, I noticed the same thing. While the blade extension might seem like the obvious problem, one of the real underlying issues here is that the cap iron is not set right. The cap iron is another item on the plane that I think is overlooked, yet is an essential piece to successful plane operation. Of...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #141: Taming the Programming Beast

10-22-2010 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday is the type of day which should reinforce what I have been preaching all along – we follow where we focus. For those of you who are regular readers, you know that the past couple of days have had me doing what I wouldn’t call my favorite aspect of the job – programming and data entry. Setting up the new site can be a tedious and daunting task for someone like me. I know enough to get by, but we all know how dangerous that can be. I had set the entire day asid...

Hello, So I did the pins last night and tonight was very fired up for the tails. It didn’t go as planned, but I got some good photos. I am choosing to look at the positive. The Blog is Up, which is surprising considering the difficulties I had today. But I am still happy! Brian

Lightbox for Lithophane display...

10-22-2010 05:08 AM by Arbo | 3 comments »

I am making lithophanes, and needed to come up with a display box that they could be mounted in and backlit for display. I drew up the following as a basic idea: I don’t have a jointer or plainer or table saw (just a CNC router) so I ‘borrowed’ a friends fathers workshop and bought some alder, and went to work cutting… and here is the actual item so far: It is 13” x 15” x 3.75” deep. I am staining them now (as can be seen in the ...
