"Art Box" Tutorial #7: The Medallion

07-01-2009 06:32 PM by Andy | 20 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 Now we need to cut a recess in the lid for the medallion to set down into.DONT cut your medallion until you have routed out the home for it.I typically make the medallion about 1” to 1.5” smaller on all sides than the lid depending on the box size and the piece of wood I have for the medallion. We are now going to make a simple jig for a router to set on and run back and forth making several passes of incrementally deeper cuts. There are a several ways to do ...

"Art Box" Tutorial #6: The Lid

06-30-2009 04:42 PM by Andy | 11 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 Regarding wood movement:Depending on the wood you use, where you live, and your own personal experience,y ou may want to allow more clearance.This is what works for me. I really dont allow for any movement at this stage. I know this sounds like trouble waiting to happen, but it works just fine for me. Even if we start off with a snug fit, we will still end up with a small gap around the perimeter. This is due to the final sanding and easing of the edges between lid and l...

Bowling Alley Workbench #4: Look at them Legs...

06-29-2009 02:06 AM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

Picking up where I last left off (each leg glued, and hand planed to clean out the glue lines), It was now time to get some assembly done. First thing First – gotta trim all legs to same length/height since during glue up some boards decided to move about. I decided to use a reference point that I could use on all legs that would match them all up – since different legs had different boards that moved around – the only reference point that I could use (and the best one of...

I found a ohio forged 14" bandsaw on craigslist for 50 bucks !!!!

06-29-2009 01:39 AM by woodb1 | 8 comments »

I was so blessed this weekend. I bought a 14” bandsaw off craigslist. He said he hasn’t used it in about 5 years. It was made in 1989 and he bought it new. It works like a top. I’m just so happy to be able to get such a deal. I clean it up and oil it. It looks great

"Art Box" Tutorial #5: Cut the lip for the lid

06-27-2009 07:23 PM by Andy | 11 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 At this point we have a box body with corner splines.Our lid is still oversized, so we can stop here and just use it to make a traditional box,one where the lid sets on top.DO NOT CUT THE LID TO SIZE UNTIL YOU ARE SURE OF THE STYLE OF BOX YOU WANT TO MAKE! For some, this may be the best option. They may not have all the required tools or may feel their skills need a little more honing.Or, you could leapfrog over the next few stages and pick up the project again when we d...

"Art Box" Tutorial #4: Corner Splines

06-23-2009 08:18 PM by Andy | 26 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 We now have our box assembled and glued up. Depending on the temperature, let it dry for a couple of hours, or overnight to be safe.Take the tape off and clean up any dried glue. This is a good time to smooth up the bottom to get rid of any rocking.You can double stick sandpaper onto a very flat and firm surface and slide the bottom across that. The problem with this approach is that sheet sandpaper is way too small. You can stick down several sheets and if you go very s...

Tool Tuneup #2: Rikon Bandsaw Tuneup

06-21-2009 11:23 PM by Jon3 | 10 comments »

One thing I noticed while building my Roubo was that there appeared to be some uncorrected blade drift and inaccuracy in my bandsaw. I have to admit, taking the time to tune it up properly has been on my todo list for a long time, but I’d never gotten around to it. Since this is Tool Tuneup week, I decided it was finally time. The top and bottom doors lift off their pins quite easily, which makes it easier to remove the blade. Then I loosed the four bolts and removed the t...

"Art Box" Tutorial #2: Wood selection

06-19-2009 04:07 PM by Andy | 11 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 The “Art Box” concept came about when I was looking for a way to use small pieces of some figured Myrtlewood I had leftover, not large enough for a box, but not something I could not throw away either. I decided to feature it in the lid of a box, like a picture in a frame. Keep that picture frame in mind when selecting the small piece for the medallion. You might select that picture piece first and then find a less figured wood to use for the lid and body, one that sets it...
