Contemporary Cross project #4: Gluing completion and cutout of outside shapes

12-06-2010 05:00 AM by kevinw | 0 comments »

So after the glue up dried on the larger piece, I clamped up the smaller interior piece giving attention to the fit as I did in the previous glue up of the large interior piece. Here is the piece unclamped. This shows the backside where the template was not seen. Here is the same piece flipped over with part of the template still showing. I used a scraper to remove the worst of the glue on the bottom side so it would sit flat on the bandsaw and then starting cutting out t...

LVL workbench with twin-pipe clamp vise (part 1 of 3)

12-06-2010 04:41 AM by Drew | 3 comments »

Felt like it was time for a bigger, better workbench. While putting together a lumber take-off at my usual lumberyard, I asked my rep if they had any scrap pieces of lvl. Well he did…... and then some. How about 2-8’x16” lvl’s and an 18’-9”x 16” Glue lam. (yellow pine).I went home, got my chainsaw and headed back. Now I needed a plan. I decided on a 6’x3’ bench with a tail vise on one end and a 2’ dbl screw front vise (m...

Machinist Toolbox #1: Design - Feedback Welcome

12-06-2010 04:38 AM by PurpLev | 22 comments »

I’ve seen machinist toolboxes here and elsewhere a couple of times, but never felt they would be useful for my woodworking needs as they seem to be aimed at organizing smaller items/tools/etc, so I never paid much attention to these boxes. With my recent interest in machining, I find I need a toolbox to hold all my small gauges, tools, keys, wrenches, tooling, measuring devices, etc. A machinist toolbox would be perfect for the job. I’ve looked around, and to be honest- these b...

The Basement #8: Simple Jig for Cutting Board Finger Grips

12-06-2010 04:11 AM by JL7 | 6 comments »

I’ve been building a bunch of cutting boards because I got the bug! Can’t help it hanging around this site….. So the pile of boards was stacking up and needed to get the finishing touches done. I wanted to cut the finger grip things (not sure what the correct title is?). Previously I built a plywood jig that clamps to the board and uses a handheld router to clean up. This works fine, but I had issues with tearout. I came up with a simple jig for the router table th...

Christmas Boxes #4: Finished

12-05-2010 11:03 PM by Zuki | 4 comments »

One last push and they are done. Here is the box with the dried homemade wood filler. Here it is sanded. Not to bad. Some of the holes were a little to tiny to hold the filler . . . but that’s ok. I will know for next time. Boxes with nameplates attached. DW purchased the plates on-line for next to nothing. Its the second year we purchased engravings from this guy and they have been quality both times. The screws did not come with the plates. They are #4 Robinson...
