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...

Inside Picture Framing #1: Glazing

12-03-2008 06:48 PM by kewald | 4 comments »

When framing anything using glass or acrylic as the glazing, there should be an air gap of at least 1/8” between the art or object being framed and the inside surface of the glass. This is to prevent moisture, from the condensation that will almost certainly occur, from transferring to the framed item. A common way to accomplish this is to use two layers of matting between the glass and the artwork. Other ways include special plastic spacers or to use a secondary rabbet in the frame ...

turnings #2: turnings - some failures as prelude to some successes

07-28-2009 12:26 PM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

Earlier this week I ended up with some scrap baltic birch ply, and cut it into squares with the band saw. I sanded the faces a bit and glued them all together overnight with Titebond III and a Bessey K-Body clamp: A little turning later: And I was starting to get a wine glass shape: That’s probably where I should have stopped. I knew that going thin-stem with the plywood in this orientation was asking for trouble, but I just kept going anyway, mad with power: ...

Oak Wall/Canopy #6: Final Assembly

07-28-2009 03:35 PM by Chris Davis | 3 comments »

It is dyed, stained and sprayed. Now for the final assembly. There is a lot more on this project, as in final assembly, then on most of my projects. I had to add the lights in the piers, headboard and header. I usually use curio lights behind the shelves, but I wanted to try some long florescent lights this time. I am still waiting for the glass for the top and the smoked glass doors. They should be ready today and I can post the finish project. Here are a couple pictures: Fo...

Oak Wall/Canopy #1: The Plan

07-15-2009 01:53 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

This project is something a little different. It is a bedroom wall unit, not a murphy wall bed, but one with piers, headboard, mirrors and a light bar. The kind where the bed just sits in front of it. The twist on this one is I will be adding a canopy to it. This will be a canopy like the old waterbed style, with the mirrors in the top. I’ve built both the Accent style wall unit and the canopy in the past, but have never combined the two. I’ll start with a style that I built before an...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #4: Miter Keys

12-16-2010 06:16 AM by FaTToaD | 2 comments »

In this final section of the Wine Cork Display Tutorials I will show you how I cut and glue in the miter keys. Larger Picture Version LJ Project of Finished Displays Here you can see my miter key jig. Since I cut so many miter keys for the wine cork displays and the boxes I make, I decided that a nice, large, dedicated jig would save me a lot of time. It works really well, I’ve used the heck out it. The first thing I do is figure out how far from the edge I want my keys to...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #3: Assembly

12-02-2010 04:07 AM by FaTToaD | 1 comment »

In this tutorial, I’ll show how I glue and assembly my wine cork displays. If you’re interested in a version with larger pictures, follow the link below: Bigger Picture Version Now that I’ve got my glass, I can begin the glue-up. However, I suggest sanding the inside first, one less thing to deal with later. I begin by laying my pieces down on my table with the inside facing down and the front facing away from me. I use a piece of MDF to make sure the front edges...

Ribbon Display End Table #1: Horse Ribbon Display End Table

05-22-2013 08:16 PM by SouthFloridaSun | 0 comments »

My fiancee has been wanting a way to elegantly display her horse ribbons in the house. One idea she liked was the Ribbon box seen here http://www.mcguinnfarms.com/office_p1.html# This in all honesty is just a short stool with a box on it. I wanted to make something more useful but serving the same purpose. So my idea is an end table with glass sides framed in wood with a glass top also framed in wood. I decided on Red Oak for all the wood including the legs and the frames. I picked up 2×...
