Tool tote travel #3: finger joints on a template / jig.

1364 days ago by mafe | 14 comments »

Tool tote travel 3finger joints on a template / jig This is third part of the tool tote travel. Now I have cut dovetails by hand, so it’s time to play with machines again…This time some finger joints, since it’s a learning experience. I bought some years ago a router template for finger joints, and half blind dovetails.I paid 100$ on a sale and never opened the box… So now it was time! I found a 10 mm router bit as the set needed, and made a test cut on some plywood… O...

1428 days ago by BertFlores58 | 2 comments »

I made a tapering box with an angle of 5 degree with the bottom as smaller side. Here are the details first. 1. Wood came from pallet boards. I am not sure if it is pine. It is green and medium hard though not dense. 2. I experimented on somewhat japanese style of a box… a four corner rooftype lid and a tapered sides. 3. A handle still has to be made…. PLEASE CLICK PICTURES FOR FULL SCREEN VIEW… I need your advise of any improvements. If you look a...

Exhibition #2: Ready, Steady, stop er go!

1480 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 11 comments »

Hello all. The time has finally come around for my ‘Mini-Exhibition’ at the local museum. As most of my work is relatively small the size of the display case I was to be exhibiting in, 40” x 26” x 9”, was not at all constricting. Then last Friday comes a frantic phone call from Jenny, the administrator. It appears the other exhibition that is running concurrently, about canal restoration, turned up with some unexpected and very rusty ironwork. Not the sort of ...

Woodworking For A Good Cause

1649 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 18 comments »

My wife, Rita, manages a daily program that keeps adults with developmental disabilities busy. She works personally with these individuals and we see first hand how this program enriches the lives of the participants and their families. Most of them are affected by down syndrome. We choose to support this program every year with donations for the fundraising auction. This year I donated the red bamboo sofa table. This was originally made with the intention of it being a donation. ...

Oh For Keepsake!

1728 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 32 comments »

Its that time of year again: HOLIDAY PROJECT TIME! So this year, I decided to make a few little keepsake boxes, thanks to some advice from The Great WOODini. I also took inspiration from a box Nicole keeps on her nightstand and developed a new design that is much more practical for the average woodworker to make. The boxes feature a secret locking pin. Once removed, the lid slides off on a sliding dovetail. And as always with these holiday gift projects, you can modify them by trying diffe...

Oh My Gosh!

1847 days ago by chickenhelmet | 7 comments »

Well it’s been a while since I’ve had the time to jump on the site. Some of you know that, after being unemployed for several months, I started a business. Wow! Colorado Record Crates is doing well. I posted pictures of the 12” LP crate in my projects not too long ago and many of you liked it, with only good things to say. What I didn’t realize is they would be wildly popular! That being said, I went to retail with no back stock at all. I really thought I’d put t...

Woodworking Books #1: Box Making

1947 days ago by DannyBoy | 3 comments »

I recently decided to go on a box making journey in woodworking. The various skills that one can learn by making simple and small boxes and structures can lead to big improvements in skill while performing larger work later on. Plus, it’s a good way to use up scraps that are laying around the woodshop. My first step in taking on any new style or project is typically a trip to the library and sometimes a further trip to the bookstore. (I’m lucky in that my public library has an...

Piece Size – Critical – and - Not Critical

2107 days ago by WoodMosaics | 4 comments »

The size doesn’t really mater, they just have to all be the same AND they have to match up with the triangle and any pieces of another size you may use along with them. The reason I go with .734 or 47/64” is some of the boards I was getting were just under ¾”. I cut the strips off the edge of a board and from those strips, I cut my pieces, so I want to be able to then get the strip to the right width, and if it starts out to narrow, I can’t. Now when I use the half size pieces with the re...
