Cutting Boards #3: First Glue Up

03-20-2012 02:58 PM by MolokMot | 0 comments »

Each of the strips is milled cut and ripped to the following dimensions: Thickness: Little less than 1” Width: 1.5” Length: 21” There are Five strips each of maple and cherry. I glued up the panel in two sections using an extra maple strip to separate them. Two strips on the end are glued together, but are not glued to the adjacent maple spacer strip or the other 8 strips. I did this primarily because I only have so many clamps at this point and my planner is only 10&#...

Pine Shaker Closet Dresser #4: Shaker design; secret compartment

03-04-2012 02:40 AM by PaBull | 9 comments »

I wanted to show off the little progress I made so far….. The drawers are going together: Here you can see how I used a wooden clamp, clamped to the bench to hold the back of the drawer upright in a 90, while i nail the front on. Once you have the front on, the rest comes easy. Lots of guys make a big deal about jigs they come up with, but I never saw the purpose of them. To get the drawer all the way square, we handle this when the bottom comes on. Wait…. look cl...

Here are some more photos showing the progress of my saws cabinet. It fits perfectly where it’s supposed to then when I connect the outfeed table and Biesmeyer style fence to it there should be no problem with maintaining alignment.I think I’ll put about two feet out the back for the outfeed table not including the mounting/hinge area. I’m going to make my own hinges instead of purchasing them; just brackets with dowels for the pins. Then, probably 8...

I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.

Shop Doings #1: How many clamps?

02-27-2012 12:46 AM by SalvageCraft | 20 comments »

I started on a small project tonight. I guess I got a little carried away with the clamps. Somewhere after the first ten, I just got curious to see how many more would fit. The really disturbing part is, I’ve forgotten what I was even making, and I can’t see through the tangle of clamps well enough to make any guesses! So, off to hang out on LJs…

Take a look at these router lifts, they are so cool. I’m going to build one after I purchase a new table saw this week. I’ll just have to eat sparser but I have to have a saw.

New Life for a Columbian Woodworking Vise #2: Will it turn?

02-23-2012 04:22 AM by hhhopks | 8 comments »

So far so good, there are no surprises. No cracks or breaks. As you recall from my previous blog post the vise will not turn. There is no sense of restoring the vise if you can get to move. So this blog is about getting the screw to turn.I searched for woodworking Columbian vise information. There don’t seem to be much. What I have found so far are mostly pictures and mounting information, but not the details that I am after. Hopefully I am correct in my selection of words in describin...

New Life for a Columbian Woodworking Vise #1: Columbian Woodworking Vise Find

02-18-2012 07:09 PM by hhhopks | 3 comments »

I just got back from a woodworking tool estate sale. There were many good buys. I would of purchase a lot more but ran out of money. I spotted this woodworking vise and noticed that it is a quick release. I already got an old vice for the workbench that I am currently building, but it is not a quick release. I thought I would give it a go. I am taking a chance in buying a vise that wouldn’t turn. For $25.00, I don’t think it is much of a gamble. Here’s what I have foun...
