This Magic The Gathering card box is designed to hold multiple decks. The top hinges open to reveal 5 small storage areas and one large one. The bottom drawer pulls out to reveal two long storage spots. The customer wanted to do the finish work on it. Check out the video below to see how I made it. View on YouTube

Another bit done on the coffee table. Well, actually it is done and in use, but in the time line of the build, here we go getting those feet looking a bit nicer. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #68: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 6

12-13-2016 09:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

In this segment I get the stretchers made and joined to the legs of the coffee table. I am still not accustomed to the new saws and will have to put more effort into my form. Never the less, the half lap dovetails come out OK. Except for one little repair that had to be made along the way. There will be more mistakes in upcoming videos, but they all get dealt with. As I was editing this I noticed I went from shorts and a T shirt to long pants and a pull over. The change in seasons is st...

Tongue Drum #1: Tongue Drum Help

12-07-2016 01:07 AM by Raymus | 0 comments »

I am in the process of making my first tongue drum. Got the Poplar box and Red Oak tone board made, needs lot of work still, and a bottom yet. But the 3/4” red oak tone board doesn’t make much sound and three of the 12 keys sound dead. Don’t understand what’s happening? It doesn’t rattle or buzz, just thump, no tone, well, not a pleasant one anyway. Sure could use some insight or help figuring out what’s happened? It’s funny, the two keys along one...

Mixer stand build #2: Legs and "joinery"

12-06-2016 02:55 PM by Lalen | 3 comments »

Tapering of the legs went pretty well. The tapering jig in the last post failed a little because all I had done is shoot brad nails in the cross braces. ( Duh!) had to reset the angle and re-cut a few sides but not too bad. (lesson #1: secure the jig!) Since this was a 4 side taper, I cut 2 sides, then used the off-cut as a wedge to fill the gap when I cut the other 2 sides. I cut the notch (dado?) for the shelf in my table saw sled before I did the taper so it would be perpendicular ...

Mixer stand build #1: Getting Started: Legs and top

12-05-2016 02:42 PM by Lalen | 0 comments »

Yep, using soft pine. Not confident enough yet to spend the $ on hardwood. This could just end up being a prototype if I don’t like how it finishes but it wont be used for chopping. Updated Plan Gluing up the legs: Taper Jig ready (haven’t made it adjustable yet) Gluing up the top. Need some shorter pipes for my pipe clamps. 5’ pipe clamps on a 16.5” wide top. “ha!” but I needed their strength.. Top ended up with a slight twi...

Mistakes and fixes #1: My back traacking box

11-29-2016 03:17 PM by SouthernMNwoodart | 5 comments »

Made a lot of mistakes on this one, which caused me to learn a bunch of new tricks and fixes. Firstly, I shouldn’t have used crooked wood for the box sides. I knew what would happen. All the corners were bad of course. I cut them out! Then when I was doweling the new corners, they cracked. Just wanted to show my project that I love and hate and maybe hear some feedback, or other horror stories.

Shop stuff #65: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 5

11-28-2016 01:19 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Yes, it is a long series, and going to get longer…..lol. In this one we get the feet roughed out and some actual joinery done, mortising the feet and legs together. I get some new saws too. After I see myself working with them I realise I have to improve my body mechanics and form. But I am having fun, and to me, that is the whole point. View on YouTube

Cherry Box of squares #6: Grooves done, and a glue up

11-20-2016 10:32 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, Stanley #45 is set up to make 1/4” wide grooves… Jig has been made. Then a few swipes with the 45.. Cut a groove in the top edge of each side. Then a test fit or three First one showed the panel was a bit too long. Trimmed it a bit, and remade the bevel. This morning, I went back to the shop. The bevels needed fine tuned, had a few spots that were a bit too fat, Spokeshave, block plane, #3 handplane, and some 80 grit wrapped around a wood slat. Worked al...
