"Art Box" Tutorial #10: Pin Hinges

1862 days ago by Andy | 17 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 I spent a lot of time developing a way to let the lid swing down into the box, yet still maintaining a fairly tight reveal on all four sidesThe difficulty is the lip itself. It doesnt allow the back of the lid to drop into the box, so thats where we need to cut it away a little deeper at the back. I call these pockets.The other difficulty is in getting the hinge placement spot on or it wont open at all or not far enough to stay open. Here is how its done: Use the same pa...

"Art Box" Tutorial #7: The Medallion

1883 days ago by Andy | 20 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 Now we need to cut a recess in the lid for the medallion to set down into.DONT cut your medallion until you have routed out the home for it.I typically make the medallion about 1” to 1.5” smaller on all sides than the lid depending on the box size and the piece of wood I have for the medallion. We are now going to make a simple jig for a router to set on and run back and forth making several passes of incrementally deeper cuts. There are a several ways to do ...

It’s about time! We finally got a good job with a lot of carving. It’s a three piece bedroom set. The style is close to the early Victorian Period. Their are 4 Scroll Acanthus leaf’s that I designed, two that go on the bed and two that go on the dresser. Now I am starting on the 8 turned legs with acanthus leaf carvings on them. All the carvings are out of solid cherry. Here are 33 pictures, on how to carve this type of “Architectural Ornament onlay application̶...

Make a Folding Out Feed Table for your Table Saw

553 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 16 comments »

This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...

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

1867 days ago 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...

"Carving a Santa Ornament" #1: Starting out

1030 days ago by mpounders | 5 comments »

Several people made some nice comments about some ornaments I posted and there seemed to be a little interest in a mini-tutorial on how to carve them. Santas are pretty easy to carve, since everyone has some familiarity with the subject and Santa is easy to recognize with just a few key features. This style is particularly easy to make since the eyes are covered. A carver named Don Worley may have invented this style, called “no-see-ums”, but I just make them up without following ...

Techniques & Methods #1: Scary Sharp Method

2262 days ago by PurpLev | 28 comments »

so just like every other woodworker at one point (what’s up with the other every other woodworkers is beyond me…) I was researching and learning about ways to sharpen my chisels, planes, and other blade tools in the shop. Since I am the weekend warrior at this point, and I do not need to resharpen my tools THAT often, nor THAT much, I figure that I can do without any expensive powertools (there are several of those on the market) to sharpen blades and I dont really have the spa...

The top and bottom spoons are Myrtlewood from Oregon, and the center one is Mahogany. Each took about 1.5 hours.The handle of the top spoon is a twist, but didnt photograph very well.I noticed the recent contest posted by Osageman and was impressed with both his skill and his big heart.Be sure and take a look at his page and make a guess on that wood.I couldnt identify that wood, but it got my attention.It got me interested in making a few spoons this last weekend and I wanted to share my...
