"Art Box" Tutorial #12: Shaping

08-11-2009 01:55 PM by Andy | 28 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is the fun part! Its scary too! The idea of taking a nice crisp box, one you have spent countless hours making, and attacking it with a tool designed for slag removal is…well…its a little disturbing. Maybe I was influenced by old Hitchcock movies more than I know. Seriously, what I enjoy is the freedom this gives me. Everything up to this point has been tied to measurements and careful setups. This is where we can cut loose a little. But slow down Hot...

Bandsaw Box Bandit #5: Its all finished except the finish

08-09-2009 04:21 PM by Walnut_Weasel | 7 comments »

Well I was finally able to finish my second box yesterday. That is, everything is finished but the finish… I went to Home Depot to get some clear oil, and for some reason the crappy depot here in our small town does not carry it! I knew I should have bought some when I was at Lowes earlier in the week! Oh and I still need to buy flocking for the inside. That is also impossible to find in this small town. I guess it is time to buy it online! I have also noticed that I need to wo...

the humble house workshop #9: one door closes, another opens

08-09-2009 08:13 AM by kiwi1969 | 17 comments »

FINALLY!!! after almost 2 years of struggle in the Philippines it has actually happened. The light at the end of the tunnel is not an oncoming train! I found a backer for my business plan and I now have a small furniture company of my own! Thats it behind the red door. The tools are your basic stuff. Planner/thicknesser combo, bandsaw, drill press etc all of it generic chinese, actually very good generic chinese I must say, but thats what the setup budget allows for and it,s not like there,...

Large bench made from the tree that stood in the grounds.

08-07-2009 07:20 PM by mreagleeyes | 18 comments »

I am working on yet another piece and thought I’d share me project so far with you guys. The Magnolia ‘Salicifolia’ tree had stood in the grounds of the Inner Temple on London’s Thames for over 80 years but due to a fungus it had to come down. My original plan was to use the timber as a practice piece that I could use my new Arbortech grinder on, however whilst the guys where cutting the tree down the girl in charge of the gardens asked what I would do with the t...

As some of you know, I got my sawmill running,http://lumberjocks.com/projects/19484.Now I need to sell a little bit of the red cedar I have sawed so far. Mostly 4/4 and a little 8/4.

Bandsaw Box Bandit #2: My Second Bandsaw Box - Day 1

07-31-2009 11:38 PM by Walnut_Weasel | 3 comments »

Well today I began work on my second bandsaw box. I am going to make a box very similar to the first (see Bandsaw Box Bandit #1) but this time I have a few ideas to overcome some of the problems I encountered while making the first box. However, just 3 cuts in I realized the root cause of one of my problems. I began by cross cutting the board to proper length. Then I made the first arced cut to form the top of the lid. Finally I made a second arced cut to form the bottom of the lid. T...

Looking for project suggestions for an awesome plank of pine

07-25-2009 09:21 AM by Durnik150 | 14 comments »

I was in the mountains this weekend and was driving down the highway just outside Estes Park (beautiful drive if you ever get to Colorado). I saw a shop with rustic furniture for sale outside. But what caught my eye were several HUGE planks of wood leaning against the building. I wasn’t sure if they were demo pieces or if he sold them separately. I pulled in to the Pine Cone Furniture woodshop and asked about the planks out front. He said the big ones were on sale for $75 and the lit...

"Art Box" Tutorial #9: It all hinges on this.

07-17-2009 03:53 PM by Andy | 8 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is where you need to decide how you want to open your box. I mentioned at the outset about some of the different boxes I have made and how they hinge differently from one another. All are good, but you may have a preference in style or it may be your ability that decides for you. The pin hinge is what we will mainly be focusing on and was used on this box. Chapter 10 will discuss this style. The Deco box uses a standard brass butt hinge with a stop stra...
