Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #9: Making an Attached Top Box

03-11-2013 09:12 AM by Boxguy | 14 comments »

I make two kinds of box tops. Boxes with inset tops (above) where the the top floats in a dadoed groove that runs around the sides, and attached tops where the top is glued directly onto the sides of the box. This tutorial will feature the attached top method, and a press design to help with this process. Of course you can use clamps to hold the top on until the glue sets. But I prefer this press. The press features 8 all-thread sections with a compression spring an...

Game Calls #2: Scratch Box Turkey Calls

02-28-2013 05:14 PM by ghost5 | 1 comment »

After posting a few of these neat little calls I thought some other folks might like to know how to make them. They are an easy project and another way to use some of that scrap wood. The easiest way to make a scratch box is to have a dedicated mortiser set up with a 1/2”cutter but since I don’t have one here is how I do it. If you do have one you can quickly see how to use it to accomplish what I am doing. I start with a 1 & 5/8”“x4” piece 1/2” t...

Three New Projects

02-23-2013 05:05 AM by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

This pile of lumber may not look like much but it will magically turn in to two of my Fishy Coffee Tables and a Toy Box. :-) Turns out I need another 10 feet of white pine, so off to the store I go tomorrow. It makes it easy that a lot of the work for all three projects can be done ahead of time in a batch. Things like ripping the edges off the 2×4’s and ripping the 1×12 white pine into three pieces each. All of that was after I cut them into rough lengths so it would be ea...

TV Table: Assembly time

02-23-2013 12:21 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

When the table was last worked on, I had two sides in the clamps No, that isn’t a glue squeeze out running down the apron’s side, turns out it is a Powder post Beetle track. Sans Beetle, of course. I dry fitted the rest of the parts and laid out for some corner blocks. Gave me a chance to try out my new Miter box An Atkins 11 point panel saw. Got the four blocks cut, and some holes drilled. Needed a counter sink the set the screws in I chucked this one in the dri...

Workbench Build #1: Workbench Build

02-22-2013 10:17 AM by RoadHogg | 11 comments »

I’ve worked with wood and been interested in woodworking since I was a child…some 40 years. Until now, I’ve never had the three things I needed to really explore that passion…time, space, money. To start off, I need a place to work so I built a simple workbench. I found these plans in Woodsmith magazine. The construction is simple, inexpensive and sturdy…just what I need.
