Plane Restorations #1: Stanley No. 45 Boxes Reproduction Graphics

10-09-2012 01:57 AM by grfrazee | 7 comments »

I bought a No. 45, but the cutters did not come with the boxes that were included at the original purchase, all those decades ago. Not wanting to spend a large amount of money for real boxes, I’ve opted to make my own reproductions. However, I wanted them to be as close to the original versions as possible. The astute reader will note that the No. 45 cutter boxes had graphics on them displaying the contents of each box. These tend to get destroyed over time and are very rare to be...

Outdoor Furniture #10: Patio Planter Boxes - Day 1

06-05-2012 02:04 AM by Retsof | 0 comments »

I started a new project today. I’m building two large patio planter boxes. The final dimensions should be close to 41” long x 24” wide x 20” high. I’m working from Woodsmith’s Outdoor Woodworking book. Here’s a link to their website: http://woodsmithstore.com/w1021.html There were a lot of cuts to make for this build. The diagrams for this project are pretty detailed and that’s a good thing because there is no cut list provided....

more boxes #5: I have been experimenting with Martyn's EZMitre technizue

05-08-2012 02:13 AM by Chris Cook | 13 comments »

I have made three boxes, in different stages now, using the EZMitre technique. I have to say these are the best mitres I have ever cut. Careful measurement is key, but it’s a very repeatable process. I’ll post the finished products once completed.

Small Woodturnings

03-13-2012 06:09 PM by Brett | 4 comments »

Hey again Everbody! Since I have been into woodturning lately, I thought that I would share a quick video of some of the small projects that I have doing on the lathe. Nothing fancy, just some small lidded boxes. Maybe this will inspire someone else to get out there and, as Capt. Eddie Castelin would say, “make some shavin’s”.

Virtual Designs in Sketchup #12: Sanding Sheet Holder

12-10-2011 09:04 PM by rance | 8 comments »

When I make boxes, I typically tape down a full sheet of 150 grit sandpaper to the Table Saw to level the top and bottom of the boxes after they are glued up. The TS is one of the few dead flat surfaces in the shop where I teach. Being as this is a ‘portable’ situation, this is a pain because of having to tape and untape it each time. I want something to slap down on a bench and be able to quickly grab it to take it with me at the end of the day. I’ve seen the ones using ...

This is an online collection of my own woodworking references(& links), both from LJ as well as elsewhere. Many times I want to give someone a link but I don’t seem to have it handy. I’m hoping I can refer back to this to find a particular link and pass it on when the need arises. Feel free to use this in any way you wish. As time goes on, it will be more useful. You might even find it helpful.     PROJECTS/TECHNIQUES: BOXES” Resawing and Grai...

Box Building #3: Photography Light Box

08-12-2011 05:22 PM by Kent Shepherd | 12 comments »

I posted one of my boxes earlier in the week and promised I would blog my light box.If you have researched this you will know I obviously did not come up with this idea. In fact, I think there are others on Ljs. This is simply my version. I am a woodworker, not a photographer, so take all this with a grain of salt. As I develop the box further, I will add to the blog. I have not done anything yet I didn’t tweak over time, so why change now, huh! It’s called design evolution, not f...

Box Building #2: New Website

07-26-2011 04:27 PM by Kent Shepherd | 13 comments »

I have been busy lately, not only building boxes, but beginning to try and market them. I just opened my website throuh Volusion. http://www.volusion.com/ After checking out several companies like them, I thought they fit my needs the best. You can set up to take credit cards through them, so it is pretty much one stop shopping. The template I chose is free, but they offer upgrades if you want. Then they charge a monthly fee. That varies according to the plan you choose. Check it out...

Just for Fun... #46: Boxes in my Blood...

05-05-2011 01:09 AM by littlecope | 19 comments »

Is it possible, that box addiction is hereditary?? I was going through some of my Grandparent’s and my Dad’s things and discovered that they all had a certain fondness for small wooden boxes!!None of them were home-made, but there were some fairly nice ones in the bunch… Dad’s Parents had a habit of buying His and Hers, so there was two of these little beauties… These were USED and look it, but I’m impressed by the thinness of the wood used in these̷...
