Joan's Work Area Shelves.

09-23-2017 11:31 PM by Just_Chuck | 0 comments »

I’m building my wife a shelf system for her carving corner in the garage. Carcass is 3/4” sanded plywood and will hang by a french cleat on the wall. I finished the glue up on the carcass and surprisingly it’s mostly square. The Home Depot plywood had some unique warp to it but I got everything cut square and the glue and clamping pulled it into shape. It’ll be about 60”tall and 30” wide – I’ll hang it off the floor about 14- 16” –...

Complex Curve Veneered Box Series #2: Making the box Carcass and veneering

12-06-2014 06:35 PM by Matt Nudi | 9 comments »

So for the box itself, this is the basic sketchup model for what I’m going for. I am trying to model this after one of “RogerBean’s” projects, hi maple burl box. However I am adding a drawer into it so it will differentiate a little bit from his process. The hardest part will be the two meet ups of two curves that occurs on the front of the box. After some thinking, I came up with some basic dimensions and my thought process for how I was going to be able to add in...

Saw Restorations #1: Spear & Jackson 10" Carcase Saw

03-02-2014 03:06 AM by grfrazee | 9 comments »

A while back I bought this saw either from ebay or an auction. Can’t really remember. Anyway, it was in kinda rough shape with a lot of rust. You can almost tell that it says “Spear & Jackson Sheffield” on the spine. This saw has brass split nuts. and a beech handle. I haven’t had the pleasure of unscrewing split nuts until now, so I had to improvise a split nut driver from a 1/2” spade bit. With the saw all apart, it was time to...

Saw Talk #23: 12" W. Tyzack, Sons & Turner Carcase Saw - Fitting a folded back

01-05-2013 12:21 AM by Brit | 33 comments »

Have you missed me? Sorry for leaving you hanging for so long, but work was a bit manic leading up to Christmas. Now where was I? Oh yeah, I was just about to sharpen the last of my crosscut backsaws, a 12” carcase saw made by W. Tyzack, Sons & Turner. I restored this saw in part 1 of this blog series. It had a number of issues and honestly, it still has a few of them. 1) The plate was heavily pitted in places.2) The plate had a wave in it. 3) The spine was bent.4) ...

Saw Talk #14: Disston No.5 - Sharpened and tested

06-23-2012 06:38 PM by Brit | 26 comments »

Have you ever thought about why some saw makers add negative rake to the teeth of their rip saws? I have, but when I was drawing a 12 TPI template in Sketchup to re-tooth my Disston No.5 carcass saw, I realized that adding a touch of rake actually increases the volume of space between the teeth. If you look at a section through a saw file, you’ll see that you have an equilateral triangle (ignoring the rounded corners that define the gullets) and we know that the three angles of a triangle ...

Vanity Cabinet - Design-Build #1: The voices in my head/The pencil in my hand

03-20-2012 04:06 PM by NBeener | 15 comments »

DJ wants “overflow” storage for her bathroom stuff and towels. And as y’all know … what DJ (or whoever YOUR equivalent is) wants … DJ gets. Time to buy some plans !! No. Wait. Not THIS time. THIS time, I’m going to actually design AND build something. [Lord, help us all….] Flipped through a few of the volumes from my awesome collection of used woodworking books. Special shout out to “Illustrated Cabinetmaking,” by...

Platform Bed #1: Initial framing

02-01-2012 10:07 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 6 comments »

Bedroom and bathroom done. I’ll start the living room/kitchen remodel in the spring. What to do in the meantime? Make a bed of course.In my mind… which is where these things always are, the bed will be maple with two large drawers on one side. The head ends will have 3 small cubbies on each side as it is impractical for us to have bedside tables because one side is up against the wall and the other side edges a window. We basically need someplace to put our glasses and watches at ...

Work In Progress #4: Canasta Part 4

11-22-2011 07:29 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

So here it is, the final glue up. I over clamped to be safe, not in the sense of clamping pressure but as far as where I was clamping. This glue up entailed gluing all 4 sets of tails and pins with the mitered front (all the same piece) of the carcass as well as gluing in the center of the floating panel. By glueing the center of the panel I control the movement of expansion and contraction to both edges, ensuring the gaps always stay very close to the same, also keeping them as smal...

Work In Progress #3: Canasta #3

11-21-2011 08:05 AM by Byron | 2 comments »

There are many parts of this project I do not want to discuss, mostly because they all involve mistakes. With this project I unfortunately made many stupid errors regarding dimensions and process of operations, but in ways that are rudimentary to woodworking. I tried to recover and hide these though thinking about the saying that being a good woodworker is not about making no mistakes, its about how well you can fix the mistakes you make. One of these mistakes came from a lack of room in...

My First Router Table #2: The Router Table Carcass

06-28-2011 02:43 AM by Dave | 3 comments »

With a design in mind I bought a couple sheets of 4×8 Birch Plywood and got to work. I don’t have pictures of this part of the process, but the first thing I did was to lay out each piece of the carcass on a 4×8 rectangle in Sketchup so I could get check what’d fit and make sure my grain was all pointing in the right direction (at that point I was thinking I might stain the cabinet). I transferred those measurements to the actual plywood sheets. When I marked things...
