Custom Wooden Pull Handles #1: How to make custom Drawer Pulls

1422 days ago by bohnsai | 15 comments »

This blog is to show others how I created all the Walnut Pulls on my Clothes Hamper Hider I searched the Lee Valley and Rockler (among others) catalogs for hours trying to find something I liked for the furniture piece but didn’t find anything that suited my fancy. I found some maple and cherry handles that looked like they might work but I wanted walnut for contrast. Would you believe it? Walnut pulls don’t exist! So I decided to make some of my own. I went ahead and bought...

Machinist Toolbox #1: Design - Feedback Welcome

1353 days ago by PurpLev | 22 comments »

I’ve seen machinist toolboxes here and elsewhere a couple of times, but never felt they would be useful for my woodworking needs as they seem to be aimed at organizing smaller items/tools/etc, so I never paid much attention to these boxes. With my recent interest in machining, I find I need a toolbox to hold all my small gauges, tools, keys, wrenches, tooling, measuring devices, etc. A machinist toolbox would be perfect for the job. I’ve looked around, and to be honest- these b...

1989 days ago by PurpLev | 8 comments »

so you wanted to use specific materials in your Sketchup project? exotic/local lumber? metals? leather? other? I saw this subject raised in one of DaveR’s latest blogs, and it’s a fairly simple thing to do in Sketchup. You can use any material you so desire in sketchup, but first, we need to ‘make’ that material. Creating new Materials in Sketchup (Using live materials as source) 1. get your material ‘source’ – this can be any photo – e...

Post and Panel Construction System #4: How to Create The Pieces

1485 days ago by Pete Tevonian | 9 comments »

Everything in this set depends on two things: cutting the beads and cutting the grooves. And those two things both rely on using the right router bits. Watch the video below for the short and sweet summary. Read the text below for more details. The Right Router Bits There are two bits used for this project—a ball-end bit and a bead profile bit. In this case, both bits have a main diameter of 3/8”. Through some testing and some math, I determined that 3/8” groove...

1451 days ago by dustynewt | 9 comments »

I must apologize for my lack of interaction here on LumberJocks. I am on the night shift at the paper mill and my neighbors don’t dig the 2:30 am woodworking bit, so I have been limited to my keychain work and ya’ll have seen that. It is my night off and I remembered a couple requests a while back to do a blog on my keychain process. So, here ‘tis! I hope the video comes out right. I’ve been experimenting with my CoolPix. Short videos? I can do that! So I decided to...

It's alive!

2328 days ago by Tom Adamski | 19 comments »

Well, after a little bit of tweeking, It looks to be working… (keeping my fingers crossed). This was just to be a proof of concept (prototype), but it seems to be working well enough that I’ll use it for the rest of the production and make a better one next time. Thanks to all for your suggestions. !(Working router trammel)! Sincerely, Tom

Hand made radius inlay banding

1303 days ago by Les Hastings | 10 comments »

We needed six pieces of radius tulipwood inlays for this project. They were going to cost around $1200.00 to get them. There was a 100 piece minimum of each radius. So I spent about four hours and made my own. See the wolf? Didn’t see it until I was all done, it just kind of happened. Thanks for looking and have fun woodworking!
