Convertible Wall Easel #1: Wall Rails

02-18-2017 07:03 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 0 comments »

This is an odd item. I paint. The mediums I use are Oil and sometimes watercolor. When painting with oil you usually stand in front of an easel that is vertical. When using water colors, you usually paint at a table as the paper is often wet. Sometimes very wet so you paint with the paper horizontal. Thus, I decided to make an easel that is usable in both the vertical and horizontal mode. I also wanted one that was attached to the wall and made as to not be as conspicuous as a large artist ea...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #15: Began Hanging Doors and Marked Drawers for Routing Grooves

02-18-2017 05:30 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

Finally, I began hanging the doors on this cabinet. After hanging the first door, I decided to change the method or steps of this process. I determined it would be easier for me to fasten the butt hinge first to the case’s face frame. Since I have routed the mortises on the doors as well as on the face frame of the case, I was confident that these mortises for the hinges were aligned very close to their final position. I did discover that micro adjustments may have to be made when I ...

Summer Uke Build #17: Neck Mortise

02-17-2017 09:20 PM by onoitsmatt | 0 comments »

The last several days of shop time have been pretty much dedicated to building a neck mortise jig. This jig is designed to hold the uke body firmly while routing the neck mortise. The neck mortise has to be perfectly centered and perfectly perpendicular to the top. I built the front face with cams on both sides to fine-tune the left/right orientation. This ensures the rout runs perpendicular to the top. When cams are engaged, it flexes a thin piece of particle board that has leat...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1821: Back in the Swing of Things!

02-17-2017 02:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

One thing about posting here less often – when I do post there is so much to share with you all! I feel like things are going fast forward again and I am back on the 'creative track' after a bleak two months for me. Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I usually try to look at the good side of even the not-so-good thing that happen. But sometimes, that just doesn't work. Try as I did, I found it hard to feel good about things.  It was time for me to s...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #14: Cut Dovetails with My Leigh D4R JIG

02-17-2017 06:56 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

Seven drawers that I decided to cut through dovetails instead of using a drawer lock router bit. One drawers in this tool cabinet is 7 1/8 inch tall. The rest come in pairs with the following dept or heights: 5 inches, 4 inches and lastly 3 inches. They are all 17 3/4 inches long and 14 inches wide. The image below shows the set of two drawer boxes that are 3 inches tall. The rest of the drawer parts are stacked next to these boxes. I will be resawing the 8/4 rough sawn sapele plank th...

Restoring a MASSIVE Underhill Gouge #2: Handle Making/Completion

02-17-2017 03:36 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 2 comments »

If you prefer not to read, the video is here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aegPxohhUqY The handle for this beast was something that took a long time. I don’t have a lathe so carving the handle via axe, knife, and spokeshave was the only option I had. The handle design was inspired from the handles I had seen on framing slicks. The overall length of this now with the handle is 34” I haven’t weighed it but I suspect it’s in the neighborhood of 4-5 pounds. Ash wa...

Shop storage projects #22: Frame works, false fronts, and other mishaps.....

02-17-2017 02:11 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, trying to get caught up here. Had the sides done, and the drawer ready to be glued up. Needed to build some webframes to make this into a case to hold two drawers… First I set aside a blank to make a false front for the bottom drawer, to ensure it didn’t get resawn down to make a the frames… Caption says this is a tenon cutter. That is only half right, as I have to move the jig one more time.. To make these “dominoes”. When all were cut, I wou...

It was made to comb mail #1: A mahogany foundry pattern

02-17-2017 01:01 AM by Patternguy | 7 comments »

A picture story about building a pattern. 10 years ago, I was the CAD/CAM guy for a pattern shop. We also had a plaster molding shop and an aluminum foundry, where we pressure cast aluminum match plates. 10 years before that, I was on the bench, building the wood master patterns that went on to become match plates. 20 years before that, I was serving a Pattern maker’s apprenticeship in an iron foundry. The master I learned from once ran General Motors, “Tech Center”...
