Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #5: Triumphal Finish, A Long Entry

07-24-2014 12:04 AM by CharlesA | 1 comment »

My nephew didn’t want any more pics to go up until he had a chance to show it to his mother and grandmother (my sister), so I haven’t posted any update. However, since today was return to home day, all may be revealed. After finishing the main box, he cut and glued four cleats to the underside of the top. He clamped up the front and back cleats first, and then snuck up on the length of side cleats. They fit perfectly. I guess I didn’t take any pictures of him cuttin...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #8: Finally it is FINISHED!

09-26-2010 10:50 PM by RonPeters | 8 comments »

Ok, I’ve been working on this for about 18 months. A little here and a little there… a piece at a time. It’s finally finished and now I can move on to making instruments. I never built a bench, or anything else – unless you consider that bowl I turned in wood shop 45 years ago? – so there was some learning curve involved. I never: made box joints or drawers, glued up a top, made and installed mortise & tenon’s, installed a vice – let alone two ...

NOT your average screen door#2

10-09-2014 06:30 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well, after much cussing and fighting, got all the rails fitted to their mortises. This being the last on this side of the door. Wound up making it an open ended affair. The lock rail took the longest, and I think I traced it’s ancestry back about ten generations… Ok, when I go to assemble the door for the final time, I will install a few wedges into each tenon, then pin the joint with a couple of dowel pins. Managed to measure for the center stile, and get the measu...

Workbench Build #37: Finishing up the Toolwell... All downhill from here.. I think..

08-10-2013 09:34 PM by Airframer | 12 comments »

We last ended with the second dovetail and the end caps mortised for the tool well ends. After a week of no progress in the shop I finally had some time this weekend to get something done. To start I needed to cut the remaining dovetails so I would know where the dados should stop to not be seen on the out side of the bench. I am sooooo glad this is over with. I would love to say I got better with each one but I really didn’t. I did learn something new on each one but the mista...

Gramps tools

10-31-2010 08:00 PM by mcoyfrog | 17 comments »

Back in 1989 my first and best mentor died, my grandpa lived next to me growing up and I spent many hours in his shop bugging him. He taught me a lot and little did I know years later I would still be repeating things he said in my head as I’m working. Gramps worked with oak and mahogany quite a bit so every time I smell either species I picture him looking over my shoulder. I think the coolest thing about woodworking is the legacy it leaves. I’ll be paying for something at a ...

Laid out for the first blank That is the plank. i had a “new” saw to do the rip cuts with I figured...

Flag Box #4: Time for Splines

08-29-2012 06:12 PM by DBoltz | 1 comment »

We’ve got the box out of the clamps and smoothed out. Time to cut the splines. I have a spline cutting jig I made for my table saw. It has a saddle that rides along the fence similar to the 22.5 cutting jig. I do the top corners first to get them out of the way. The top corner, since the angles are 45 degrees, just sits in the jig normal. On the 22.5 cuts, I used one of my test pieces of pine to support the angle. You can see that in the picture. I also raised the saw blade a ...

Treadle Lathe workbench #7: finally the workbench is recognizable....

04-09-2009 03:25 AM by jth2bmtsu | 1 comment »

Over the past few days, my brother and I have worked more on the workbench portion of the project. We framed out the bottom shelf and framed out the workbench top. We used some scrap 2×4’s to do the framing and some scrap plywood for the surface. Eventually, the plywood work surface will be covered with oak. We are still debating the best way to weld the crank together but I want to make sure everything fits and is functional first. The next step to tackle is the tension wheel, hea...
