Stuff I Wish I Had Known #1: Measuring Miters

526 days ago by Pat Gornet | 4 comments »

This is something I struggled with for a while and only recently have been able to do the math for. Purrmaster had asked how and most of this is my response to his question. If you want the inside of the frame to be 8 inches in length then, with a board of 2 inch in width, you would add the width times 2. so with a 2 inch wide board the out side of your frame will be 12 inches. However, if you want to account for the rabbet that you set the picture into then you have to do a bit more math...

A tool for clamping a wide variety of joints

1015 days ago by davesblokkz | 8 comments »

When working on my various woodworking projects I found times that I had to glue odd joints and really didn’t have the clamps I needed. The solution to the problem was the development of a clamping block that simplified clamping these uncommon joints. The Universal Clamping Block tool will let you clamp the usual miters and and frames but will also facilitate the clamping of a great variety of other joints that occur in woodworking projects that present special clamping problems. ...

Machinist Toolcart #5: Front Face Frames are On

1108 days ago by PurpLev | 9 comments »

Another small step forward. I was able to mill some mahogany today for the face frames. I milled some 7/8”x1/2” strips from 1 long board that I was hoping would be enough for both front and back face frames but unfortunately it only yielded enough material for the front which is also all I had time today to manage. So I joint a board with my #6 so that I can then rip it on the TS to long narrow strips 7/8” wide (to cover the 3/4” plywood with excess that I could the...

Machinist Toolbox #4: Bad Weather, Kitchen Bender

1324 days ago by PurpLev | 9 comments »

It was pouring outside, and so grey, but somehow the train kept on going. I somewhat planned for this in advance, and made sure I cut all the parts in advance so that I can continue working later on on the joinery in a more flexible manner, and flexible I mean literally as the kitchen counter flexed as I chiseled away. Then again, I was able to get some progress done while being with the family and not isolated in the garage. My daughter sat next to me watching me carve the sockets out with i...

The Other John Hall Frames

1783 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 5 comments »

One of my favorite projects ever to come out of my shop is the John Hall Frame reproduction (mine is on the left and the original is on the right). Just as a quick refresher, John Hall was one of the famous Hall Brothers who were responsible for the construction of many of the best known Greene & Greene creations. Now many of you may remember that I was attending a week-long class being taught by Darrell Peart at the William Ng School when I had an opportunity to handle, trace, and me...
