Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #3: Mortising the old fashioned way and a first panel glue-up

07-19-2014 06:43 PM by CharlesA | 1 comment »

We’ve continue on in the project. After crosscutting his first board by hand—getting him comfortable with hand sawing—He did a some rough crosscuts on the miter saw and some finer ones with the crosscut sled on the table saw. Here is his first cut on the miter saw. His commitment to doing the cuts safely is really comforting. The box has a small divided shelf held in place by mortises in the box. We’re doing them the old-fashioned way so he can learn to use ch...

Hi All, I posted some details and pics of my workshop today as well as some projects. I completed my first project recently – a headbaord for our guest bedroom. I’ve made some picture frames and working on a more ‘deluxe’ picture frame now. I’m going to need to jump in and look for some answers soon, the questions are starting to pile up!.

Replacement Speaker Boxes #2: Clamps are off...

12-30-2011 08:22 AM by Nighthawk | 0 comments »

Been a bit slack and well christmas and all that no excuse… anyway both speakers now glued and set, the back piece is not yet glued in, so we can assemble the wiring to the actual speakers when finished etc. Clamps are off and the long slow timely process of sanding to get them loooking good. This will also hide any inperfections of our glue up… Doh Have taped newspaper over speaker faces to protect them the best we can, so no dust can get in anyway. Also have done the same to ...

A Rediscovered Tool: Bench Clamp

06-03-2012 01:07 PM by SirFatty | 5 comments »

I would do a proper review on this tool, but I have no idea who the manufacturer is or if it can be purchased currently. Quite some time ago I was at a home show at Pheasant Run Resort and there wan an infomercial style booth set up where a guy was selling a bench clamp. I got caught up in the sales pitch and shelled out about $100 bucks for this thing: At the time, I was living in a townhouse, and believe it or not, the two car garage was bigger than the one in our current single ...

Little Bathroom Remodel - Lumberjocks style #1: Countertop

03-07-2015 05:15 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 6 comments »

Howdy, I’m redoing the tiniest of tiny bathrooms. One entire wall is occupied by the tub. The other wall is taken up by the vanity and one of those gigantic mirrors. In between those small walls is the throne. If you are seated at the throne, there is just enough room to open the door. Yep… Tiny! I started on the countertop simply because I already knew exactly how I wanted it. Here are a few work in progress shots. I have already received some outstandi...

Another pile of pine #4: Part 5: Top and a shelf

04-05-2015 03:57 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

First off….HAPPY EASTER! Well, added some cleats to hold a top in place, and act as “kickers” for the drawers. Cut around to get past the legs, and went to screw them in place…...something was a might off. Well, got the cleats on the ends installed , and a center cleat. Center cleat had to move a bit to line up? Ok, plopped the base onto the top. Placed a screw into each center line hole. Grabbed a LONG pipe clamp, and set it up at a diagonal. The idea...

Tool thoughts #34: Rockler answered the call & the Brown truck delivereth

09-01-2012 10:00 AM by NedB | 1 comment »

Morning folks! Been a quiet week out in the shop. There were two days when I didn’t even make it out there at all, which is Not how I want to ‘run’ things, but life got in the way. That was OK though. I spent two of the non-shop days with my youngest son, we went to the movies and saw ‘the Dark Knight Rises’. I’m much more of a Marvel fan than DC in the comics realm, but I sure do like the latest iteration of the Batman movies, not just Dark Knight, but...

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.

Lee and Shelley's Wet Bar #4: Phase III Doors and Drawer Fronts

03-31-2014 07:16 PM by MT_Stringer | 5 comments »

With the face frames built, it was time to build the raised panel doors and the drawer fronts. I used the Freud rail and stile bit set to do the cope and stick profile cutting. Then I used a Freud raised panel bit to make the raised panels. I used a Bosch 1617 router in a router table, slowed it down to it’s slowest speed and made several passes until I got the final result I was looking for. The drawer fronts have flat panels made of maple ply. Gluing up two at a time. ...
