My First Bandsaw Box #6: Step 5: Cut Out the Shape of Your Drawer(s)

12-15-2010 05:59 AM by Jonathan | 2 comments »

Now we’re getting to the point where there’s no turning back. Once you start cutting into your shaped hunk of wood for your drawer, or drawers, that’s it, you’re committed! I want to cut out the drawer to be about the same shape of oval that I cut for the outline of the box, only it’s obviously going to be a smaller oval since it’s from the inside of the box. In order to make a smaller, but identically shaped oval, I traced the outline of a smaller im...

Is the myth that all Power tools are made in the same place TRUE????

12-15-2010 05:25 AM by Delta356 | 21 comments »

Hi all, I propose this question because I have seen a lot of LJ say that Harbor Freight tools are made by the same tool maker of the Top tool brands, DELTA MACHINERY, DEWALT, PORTER CABLE, HITACHI ECT… Is this a myth or true. You can not compare Harbor Freight tools to Delta tools. The quality is not there with Harbor Freight.Many say they there all the same tool, and they just color them and put a sticker on them. I can see that , because I look at harbor Freight tools and many look li...

Work in Progress #2: A Storefront Counter

12-15-2010 05:01 AM by MikeInPenetanguishene | 4 comments »

I recently moved my business (a photography studio) to a new Main St/Small Town storefront. It’s in an old building (used to be a hardware store!!) and has been renovated but in keeping with the period look of small town Ontario. My front room (reception area) is only 10’ x 12’ but I’d like a ‘old fashioned’ looking wooden counter to use up there. Here’s a photo of one at a friend’s frame shop. It was made from pine, and although I r...

Built-In Bed #9: Site Work Begins

12-15-2010 04:45 AM by Scott R. Turner | 1 comment »

(The Story So Far: Our Hero is constructing a built-in bed for his daughter, with inadequate tools and woodworking experience. Work has slowed to a crawl thanks to the holidays and countless other demands on his time…) My neighbor returned from his vacation and was immediately drafted into helping move the panels for the built-in bed upstairs to the customer’s bedroom. Well, not immediately. First I went over to his house to help him re-assemble and move a dining room table...

Contemporary Cross project #7: Continuing the shiplap joints

12-15-2010 03:03 AM by kevinw | 1 comment »

Here is a top view after making the bandsaw cuts Use your chisel to start cleaning out this section. It is a good idea to work from both outside edges towared the middle to not split out on your finished edges anywhere. Here I have pretty well cleaned out the easy part. Now on to the curves. I have chiseled away a few layers and continuing rescoring along the curved line and carefully removing material. You have to be really patient as the scoring does not go deep and...

Adventures in Furniture Repairing #1: Multiple office side chairs with inherent design flaws

12-15-2010 02:54 AM by Lee Barker | 5 comments »

It is unclear at this writing how many of these I will host, but there is a pile of them at the office, all out of commission. They were built by an unknown local cabinet shop. Almost all of them failed at the mortise and tenon joint at the front rail which supports the seat. The upholstery is in great shape, so the head guy at that office decided they were worth saving. The inherent design flaw is just that—there’s only that rail, no stretchers below. Nothing in th...
