Right Angle Clamp Jigs

01-14-2010 06:36 AM by David Craig | 11 comments »

I had to do a glue up of a shoe rack for a friend today so I finally got around to making some right angled clamps. Design mostly inspired by Wood magazine. It is a tip most woodworkers are familiar with but is worth a frequent repeat. There are many ads out there for various types of right angled clamps. Most are made from plastic, some from aluminum and other metals. They are used to assist in keeping any box type project square while fastening. I didn’t feel like buying them so I ...

You've just been cope and sticked!

01-14-2010 06:21 AM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

We’ve covered the basics of a shaker style door, and then added moulding to it. There are a variety of door styles. Lets discuss a cope and stick. First of all, the cope and stick door is a 5 piece door. The Cope is the ends of the rails, or the “tenon”. The sticking is the decorative detail on the rail and stiles. The cope and stick cuts a 3/8” groove in your stock, as well as a 3/8” tenon. Use these depths to determine the width of your door. For instan...

Cronicles of Draven #1: Stumbling onto something far bigger than myself

01-14-2010 06:14 AM by Deuce | 6 comments »

Deuce’s log, January 13, 2010 We’ve all heard stories of past lives coming out to the surface…I cannot forget how crazy i thought the person who first suggested it to me was. Memories of being someone else? Where’s the lithium? The past few months I’ve been biting my tongue, because memories are now something I cannot remove from my head.I’m not crazy, but lately i have been remembering quite vivid memories about being someone else; About a past life....

Accu-Head Helical Head Replacement #1: Received my Accu-Head Helical Head today

01-14-2010 04:45 AM by mckenziedrums | 6 comments »

Gotta love when you luck out and the shipper turns out to just be one state away… Just a quick photo for now. Was hoping to get it installed tonight but ended up watching a movie with the wife instead. These guys do a DARN good job of packaging their product. I had to get my screwdriver out and unscrew 6 pretty heavy duty screws that were holding the lid down on this packaging. Kudos to them for making sure it arrived here in excellent shape. One pleasant surprise when I opened th...

The Smartdesk #1: The Electronic executive Desk

01-14-2010 04:03 AM by TheBasiks | 4 comments »

This will be the best investment that our clients will ever make, with multitouch technology, drafting, as well as designing tools along with a custom built in computer, a Wacom 21ux cintiq, monitor recording speakers, touch opened drawers and a desk equipped with adequate enough space. The executive desk should be well designed but should also incorporate a executive, modern environment. The desk should have ample enough space for designing, pre-production audio engineering and client pres...

Extremely Average #12: It aint my Faulkner

01-14-2010 03:47 AM by Ecocandle | 8 comments »

“Sometimes I think it aint none of us pure crazy and aint none of us pure sane until the balance of us talks him that-a-way. It’s like it aint so much what a fellow does, but it’s the way the majority of folks is looking at him when he does it.” -William Faulkner, Novel,1930 ‘As I Lay Dying’ I enjoyed this novel. I enjoyed it a great deal, especially after I became use to the style, called stream of consciousness, with which Faulkner penned his ‘tour de force’. In just 6 weeks, w...

Fireplace Wall #1: Popping the Grain in Black Walnut

01-14-2010 03:16 AM by SouthpawCA | 4 comments »

I was trying to find a good article/link about popping the grain in black walnut but didn’t find one that really explained it for me. There are many articles/links dealing with maple though. As luck would have it, our woodworkers club in association with the local adult education was going to host a few classes on finishing. These classes were mainly dealing with “old school” finishing techniques including French polish. Although not actually going all the way through th...

A Very Simple Easy to Make Small Portable Router Table

01-14-2010 12:27 AM by stefang | 11 comments »

I’ve been helping an Australian woodworker to construct a box. She is very competent with a scroll saw, but a little shaky on the box construction side, so I offered to help her out. During this period I have been helping my 12 year old grandson to make a box, so it was easy to just take photos and add a work description for my Aussie friend. Everything went well until we came to a point where we needed grooves to be cut in the sides to hold the top and bottoms of the box. She said she ...

OSB Projects #1: Round Front Bedside Tables

01-13-2010 09:33 PM by bobkberg | 2 comments »

I’ve been working on these for almost a year now. As with any serious project, I build a prototype/model out of cardboard full scale. The main reason for the cardboard is so that we can slice/dice/tape/glue the prototype into what we want. The prototype in the photo above is in its 3rd or 4th incarnation in cardboard alone. The top section contains a lazy susan with dividers to hold up books – both of us like to read in bed, and jump from one book to another depending on o...
