How to build an oval cutting jig (elliptical router jig)

12-06-2018 07:46 PM by BenhamDesign | 4 comments »

I got a wild idea to build an oval table and I didn’t want to wait for a store bought jig to show up in the mail, so I decided to make my own. If you are interested you can watch it on Youtube or read about it below Video recapToday I’m making a shop made oval cutting jig, because I needed it to build this table. That video should be out in a few hours, so please check back I started out the build by cutting the base to size. I’m making it out of ¾” plywood but ¼” would be b...

Lets talk a bit about the inside of the box. When I worked on the intention drawing I had in mind the Getty coffer for the shape and marquetry, but we wanted to create something functional. My first idea was a dropfront and Patrick was dead set agains it. After months of turning around, looking at other projects but always comming back to that one, we compromised on : a dropfront… Eheh An intent drawing is always a great start for me, as I try to present what the object will be fu...

Treasure Box III - Post #5: Chêne de Tronçais - Tronçais' Oak

12-02-2018 09:42 PM by Patricelejeune | 7 comments »

I have been working more on the Treasure Boxes than on the blog… I could cut down the blog and fast forward to now, closer to the end, but I understand some of you like the step by step appoach. One of the reason I have not been updating our progress as much as usual, and I am usually not great at it anyway, is that the first box was ordered 11 months ago, on drawing alone. It was bought by the wife of one of our best client for a big birthday, one with a brand new zero in it. The...

11-24-2018 06:50 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

A huge amount of work gets done in this one. It’s worth it though. This is how I made the legs for the Roubo bench. It also brings everything on the build up to date. I am finally caught up with editing video on it. Not sure when the next bit of work will get done. Other projects and the weather will be in control of that. Still working on the bathroom reno!

Making Tree into Rope

11-03-2018 02:02 PM by MaxAdvoko | 0 comments »

Hi folks! This video is about making a primitive rope from a young fir. Such rope was used by loggers and raftsmen in the past. Admittedly, the fir rope is less flexible than traditional rope and it will be harder to tie into a knot, but it only takes a few minutes to make such rope.Moreover, this DIY rope has a number of unexpected woodworking uses that I will tell you about in this three minute video:

Shop stuff #140: Fixing a snow blower.

11-03-2018 03:18 AM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Not wood working, but they can make the path to the shop a bit easier. I went with a friend to pick up his Father In Laws snow blower that has been sitting for 2 years. Not using things sometimes leads to problems. So I took a day and fixed it up for him. A change of pace from the usual in my shop. View on YouTube
