So my last work session saw a lot of good progress on this project, but we are far from done. I needed to finish a support cabinet on either side of each miter saw, as well as a small space to house the Oneida. Let’s start with the basic layout of the base cabinets And then we assemble and add stability: Angle brackets were made.with plywood and a pocket hole jig: A small support.in the bottom to prevent sagging…. After the cabinet went together, it was time to atta...
Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options In the Weekend Wall Shelf episode, I showed you how to use a parallel jig to create dados. But the jig was originally created for making coves at the tablesaw. So here’s a special jig made specifically for the purpose of creating dados with your router. The best part is, you can get exact-width dados EVERY TIME! This jig was developed and demonstrated in the current Guild Build as part of the Wall-Hanging Cabi...
Short of owning a CNC Router, I can’t think of a better way to cut dados. This is my first attempt at a video. I discovered what a huge learning curve is involved and hopefully I’ll get better. —Gee I love computers! With a lot of help from my lovely wife, here it is—Enjoy! Thanks for watching.Kent
Today I received a call from Dale at ACME Tools in Cedar Rapids. A couple of weeks ago I asked if they had any router plates. Dale said that they were out but there were some that were supposed to be arriving any day. He checked the computer, and the order was a couple of days past due. I find the people at ACME tools to be helpful and they are very patient with my lack of knowledge. The next two times I walked in, Dale saw me and said that the Rosseau plate wasn’t in yet. I didn’...
As I was waiting for another project to dry, I did a little work on the table top. I had cut it oversized on purpose to take advantage of the wavy figure in the board. I then had to face the difficult decision of how to trim it down for a sofa/foyer table that didn’t stick too far out. I settled on a 14” wide board, which leaves plenty of room for a decent overhand in the front, 2 1/4” legs, and a side apron that doesn’t look like a chubby baby’s leg. I the...
In my short time in this great craft, I’ve many times wanted to give up on a project. Sometimes the difficulties seem too great, or the things that go wrong seem unfixable. Yet I’ve always managed to carry on and finish. Today I had my first shop time since before we moved (on May 13). I am far from set up at our new place, and I knew it would be a while before I was, so I had left all my woodworking stuff at the old place. So I had about 2 hours of shop time, and planned to...
