Building lumber storage with a free download plans from Fine Woodworking.
Another Lumberjocker asked for plans for my One-Handed Clamp (Picture #1). So far as I know this type of specialty clamp was originally devised for building lapstrake boats. In lapstrake boats the laps are clamped together for riveting which requires reaching across the full width of the new plank with the clamp. But this clamp also comes in handy at times for other deep-reaching, and/or one-handed clamping needs. I decided to publish a copy of my patterns here for anyone who needs them. ...
Well I finally finished the Tablesaw Base, trying to film during rain storms is almost impossible with the ambient noise from the rain hitting the metal roof.. but I waited it out, and am very happy with the outcome.. Here is a look at the final steps of building this base
Ok, I’ve been busy with life and could only get to the violin as weather permitted, that is until I insulated the garage and installed an IR heat lamp which takes the chill off the air. This is the maple back. I’ve carved guides using templates I made out of aluminum. After aligning the guides to the plate surface it’s a simple matter of carving away the excess and blending. There are 6 templates. 1 through 5 are horizontal left to right with the last spanning the length....
I have not really been woodworking all that long. I have actually owned a sawmill longer than I have been making any finished wood projects, long story. I have debated making a proper bench for some time. My old/first bench was a row of kitchen cabinets I took out on a remodel I did as a contractor with a solid plank on top. Everyone has different needs, I tried to design mine to fit the work I do. If I need to I can easily make modifications, as is I am calling it “done for now”....
This woodworking video features a crosscut sled and a tilting bandsaw technique used to create the feather pattern. The table saw angle is set to 45 degees. The wood segments for the wood inlay banding are cut cleany and safely using this method. This video also shows how the wood segments are accurately aligned during the glue-up and clamping processes. Enjoy more videos about how to make wood inlay banding. How to Make the Square Pattern How to Make the Barber Pole Pattern ...
All of the lumber for the legs has been sized…now to glue them up… I cut a small piece of the “frame” lumber, so that it would be easier to glue up the legs with the proper sized notch. The final size of the legs is 24 1/2” long (the glued up short section is 5” shorter than the longer piece; 19 1/2” in this case). Above: The first leg is glued-up. Check the size of your notch with a sample cut from your upper or lower frame lumber. Aft...
I got so tired of fighting with glueing up cutting boards.Is everything lining up ? Is there slipping ? One clamp at a time !!So I spotted these flooring jacks in the HF catalog...and I began to wonder.I bet that I could use these to clamp cutting boards together in hopefully one shot.I haven’t tried it yet, but I will let everyone know if there are problems.I am thinking this is going to work just fine.I may need to add regular clamps at the corners, we’ll see. I did h...
I am posting this as an add-on to my Easy Shop Table. On some of my shop tables I use an MDF top that is integrated (flush) with the top frame. On others (such as my router table) I left the top frame open, and added my router table top. That is the case with the add-on top featured here. I recently acquired some large coated MDF panels. I am not sure what it is coated with, but it is very smooth (different than Melamine). These panels were previously a counter top or shelf assembly...
Hey guys and Gals, this weeks project is just a fun simple shop project with a twist. I decided to build a Router bit cabinet for the shop. Well that was the plan, then i started thinking about a way to make it a little more interesting.. Then it hit me, Why not make a Router bit cabinet with a Secret Compartment? I came up with a simple way of locking and unlocking the compartment. So one thing led to another and this is the results. Now the cabinet itself is not made of anything fancy. Sinc...
