Cherry File Cabinet #3: Box Joints (or how not to make a plywood box)

12-30-2014 12:22 AM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

Ok, so the carcass (correct term?) of the file cabinet is all glued up and came out really nice. I have a few touch ups with a sanding block to do. I set off this morning in search of decent 1/2” plywood to make the two drawers. I ended up driving 1/2 an hour into town to Rockler to pickup a sheet of 1/2” Baltic Birch and some 1/4” for the bottoms, along with some satin Arm R Seal. Made a side trip on the way home to Lowes to spend the gift cards that were burning a ho...

Mini hand tool cabinet #4: Hand-cut finger joints

09-24-2014 12:00 AM by JSOvens | 5 comments »

Well, I finally worked up the nerve to finish preparing the panels I glued up in the last entry. I was worried that removing any residual twist/cup/bow from the panel glue-ups would result in very thin panels. I discovered that once I ripped the panels in half (one half for each of the door and wall-mounted component of the cabinet) that there was very little flattening to do on the narrower boards. A bit of hand planing on one face, followed by thickness planing (same method as shown in this...

Wishes come true, Thanks to Kiefer

04-30-2014 09:23 AM by Stevie1 | 1 comment »

I have always wanted to make Finger/Box Joints on the table saw, But as it is only a little saw, I am unable to fit a Dado Set, or Multiple Blades. Along came LumberJocks. I was reading through the Projects everyone has posted, “Fantastic work” when if came across ADJUSTEBLE INDEX BOX JOINT JIG by Kiefer. . Anyway I knew this was the jig to allow me to make my long wanted box Joints. I contacted Kiefer and he very kindly sent me some extra ...

The New Yankee Workshop - Chapter 1 The Medicine Cabinet #2: Medicine Cabinet - First Project Day 1

01-08-2013 04:49 AM by camps764 | 4 comments »

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step…Lao Tzu After writing the initial blog I could hardly wait to get started. Took care of few things around the house, re-read the first chapter a few times, checked my lumber supply, kissed the baby and retreated to my shop for the day. The book opens with some initial information about types of saws and tools a woodworker needs, an overview of the fundamental joinery and some other basic terminology. Great information, ...

Fiddle Case #1: I am tired of being out "blinged" at the fiddle jams

04-19-2012 04:11 PM by Wes Grimes | 11 comments »

Among my hobbies is playing fiddle at acoustic jams. What I have noticed when a bunch of fiddlers gather is that everyone “ohhs” and “ahhs” over the cases. I think this is because all of the fiddles look the same. Sure some have a prettier finish or grain than others, but none really jump out at you. There is always someone with a crocodile vintage case that wins the show. Those are hard to come by, so I thought I would try building a wooden case to try and keep ...

Jigs etc. #4: Snakes and Ladders - Hinge Template Routing Jig

01-26-2012 05:45 PM by BritBoxmaker | 7 comments »

I’m just going to let the pictures tell the story here. The only things I will say is that the template guide pin must be exactly the same width as the router bit used (6mm in this case) and the minimum hinge pin width is also dictated by the router bit used. This is the test run with a 115mm square x 6mm thick piece of MDF being routed. No, even I don’t trust the actual pieces I am working for a project to the first run with a new jig.The templates were marked out, using a knife,...

Equipping the Shop #5: Tenoning Jig - with add-on digital readout

09-10-2011 07:12 AM by Ocelot | 14 comments »

I had in mind to make a rail and stile sort of thing, with what I think are called box joints in the frame. After I took a whack at using the fence on the table saw to guide some pieces on end to cut the box joint notches, I decided that I really needed a tenoning jig. So, after reading a bit on-line, I ordered a tenoning jig from Rockler. I think you can get the same jig for $20 less from Grizzly, but I didn’t notice that til after I ordered it. To obtain the maximum range...
