Wine Cork Display Tutorials #2: Cutting and Measuring

11-18-2010 07:12 AM by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

In this tutorial I’ll be making three redwood wine box displays. Two will be 12” x 12” x 3”, the other will be 10” x 10” x 2 1/4”. These are the two most common sizes I make, the 12” square box will hold ~125 wine corks, where as the 10” version will hold ~80. It doesn’t look like that many will fit in there, but I promise you they will.Before we begin, I want to mention that these tutorials will be available on my photography sit...

Trestle Table Desks #3: Fixing a flub and stacking parts

11-13-2010 02:57 AM by Lee Barker | 4 comments »

The dado for the juniper panels (see the image of the parts) is quite wide. I used a 1” straight router bit in the saw table. I was inattentive on one and let it get by about 3/4”. Though the error would likely never be seen, I decided to plug it. In the image you’ll see the plug glued in and the scrap from which it was taken. The second one shows the result of putting a little glue in the voids and sanding with a RO machine and 150x. All the parts are now machined f...

Super Duper Sled #1: The Sketchup Plans

09-04-2010 08:25 AM by AttainableApex | 11 comments »

Well here is my latest sled design. This sled is a combination of many sleds that i have seen in the past. One sled that really influenced it, is the super sled by john nixon at eagle lake woodworking. I like the t track on the sled part (the sheet part) but i am going to use real t track. I also liked the t track on top of the fence, which i incorporated, but it stops there. This sled should be able to do just about everything. You can cut 45’s ( blade tilting at 45 deg ) and every o...

Cabinet Making #3: Making Drawers

06-28-2010 06:43 AM by Tim Dorcas | 4 comments »

Up to now, things were relatively easy. Now the actual work was going to start. To make the drawers, I decided to use Poplar. However, I did something I would now change. I purchased 4/4 of the stuff with the idea that I would resaw in half on my bandsaw. In retrospect, I should have purchased 8/4 and cut it into thirds. After resawing, planing and sanding, the boards were much thinner than I had hoped. The next decision was how to construct the drawers themselves. I have an Akeda Dovetai...

I did it, I got me a table saw.

06-05-2010 05:54 AM by crank49 | 13 comments »

Been looking, reading, evaluating and rationalizing for months. I bet I have read every entry in every woodworking blog I could find that had anything to do with table saws. I have known all along what I wanted was a cabinet saw because the only table saw I ever had access to was a 5 HP, 3 phase, 12” Powermatic back in the 1980s. A high standard indeed. Likewise I have known what I could afford would probably be between a starter saw and a jobsite saw (or a lucky find for a used saw). I...

Why is building a small cabinet such a pain?

04-24-2010 06:14 AM by technicallymark | 1 comment »

I’ve looked at books for new woodworkers that laid out several different projects to build various skill sets. I like the concept, but enjoy being creative when it comes to thinking about projects to build. My first project was a woodworking bench from FWW last summer. I put the hobby on hold as far as building goes, but read and watched as much as I could and even took a class at my local Woodcraft store. So I’ve had a great deal of time to think about what kind of projects I...

Extremely Average #30: Henry Wood Detective Agency: Monday Morning

02-01-2010 05:50 AM by Ecocandle | 7 comments »

Sunday had been relaxing. Henry spent the day finishing his dado jig for his router. He was starting to get comfortable using the router and was able to create a straight edge, then from that, square up the jig. He could hardly believe it when he put the square on each corner and they were all at 90 degrees. What a rush. After he finished the jig and photographed it for posterity he relaxed a bit and bought a new case journal. He jotted down a few of his thoughts. Jan 2, 1955...

Shoe Rack #1: Building the carcass

01-15-2010 05:33 PM by David Craig | 5 comments »

The following is an example of a project that I usually will find myself working on. It also highlights one of the reasons why I don’t post projects, as these are usually rough constructions that I attempt to make a little better than the material I am working with. Right now, my house is in a state of semi-chaos. My brother has moved in a few months ago (he has been recently diagnosed with MS and is trying to get his life together) and so I have been trying to adjust to the addition of...

Shaker Night Stand #1: The commitment

12-05-2009 05:40 PM by NBeener | 17 comments »

I’ve always heard that—if, for example, you’re going to quit smoking—it helps to tell everybody you know that you’re going to quit, and on what date you’re going to quit. It helps get you committed (something that’s been talked about, in my case, for years!). So … here I go. My next ww project is a Shaker Style night stand. Actually, it’s two: his and hers. I’m going to build mine first, so I can butcher IT, and then tra...

Beads Box #4: Mild Cutting, Doors part, Dadoes, and rabbets

10-08-2009 03:28 PM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

I’ve had this project on the back burner (literally- it was standing in the back on the burner…) for a long time (just click on the “Previous blog entry” and you’ll see what I mean). and I think it’s due to the fact I have high expectations out of this project, that sometimes I feel are a bit over my capabilities and abilities at this day and age. But… I finally got some courage, and cut the carcass down so I can pick up on this project, and move o...
