SYP Spilt-Top Roubo Workbench #7: Benchtop Divider

11-27-2013 08:16 PM by grfrazee | 4 comments »

My bench has had a gaping…er…gap in the middle of it since I built in in December 2012. Since I have Thanksgiving week off, I thought I’d remedy the situation. The divider is a simple piece made with two boards of sapwood-y black walnut with oak spacers. The bench was quite useful for gluing the thing together. The shot below shows that I staggered the spacers to accommodate different sized tools. After a little cleanup on the table saw and some fine...

Machinist Toolcart #3: Dividers Fittings

06-21-2011 05:10 PM by PurpLev | 0 comments »

A small step for this tool cart, a huge step for woodworking… or not really, but a small step nonetheless. I was able to dry fit the mitered carcass, and trim the horizontal and vertical drawer dividers to make them fit while keeping everything square (or as close to square as I could manage): had to leave it like that for the rest of the evening, but was able to sneak back to it for a short while longer and cut a 1/8” slot on all the fronts and backs of all the parts...

Proportional Dividers - Golden Section and Generalized #2: Proportional Divider (4 arms) - General Equation

11-22-2010 08:31 AM by Mark Whitsitt | 6 comments »

Ok, while I’m messing with the Golden Ratio and mathematics, I thought I’d also try to figure out how to make a simple cross beam proportional divider. It’s been a while since High School Geometry, so I had to go back and reprove the relationships between proportional isosceles triangles to myself. I also couldn’t find this specific formula for making a divider anywhere on the net in a reasonable amount of time, so I just re-derived it. (I believe this is all correc...

Hand Tools - Working on going unplugged a little

06-22-2010 09:35 PM by David Craig | 15 comments »

With the confidence gained recently with the use of properly sharped chisels, I decided to make hand tools the center of my next tool splurge. True to my word, with the great customer service provided by Highland Woodworking, I placed another order and received the following - The spokeshaves were an impulse purchase at Harbor Freight. Both for 12 bucks and I haven’t seen spokeshaves at any local stores. I picked up a Crown dovetail gent’s saw (good reviews on fine wood...

Knitting box #7: Box divider and bottom

06-03-2009 05:46 AM by Luke | 2 comments »

So here I have the drawer pieces all laid out and routed the groove in the bottom of them for the slide in solid panel 1/8” maple that I am going to use. I was trying to decide on solid or ply and thought that it would look better with the solid plus I don’t have any maple ply and I have plenty of the maple solid. I had to make a trip to get the bit as my standard bit set didn’t have one that small (1/8”). I set up a couple of stops on my router table and cut the groov...
