Maybe the least fun part of any woodworking project requiring a nice finish is the smoothing and sanding. Over the years I’ve been taught or learned by trial and error a few little tricks to make things easier and better. Many years ago a boat-school-taught guy in the boat shop saw me whaling away with a big disc sander on something and made a snotty remark saying, ‘Anybody can WEAR wood!’. The implication was that ‘purists’ like him depended on very sharp tools only. Some may disagree...

Adjusting the Incra IBOX in one pass — a foolproof method

01-04-2019 12:05 AM by Rich | 4 comments »

When I first got the IBOX a couple of years ago, I was extremely frustrated by it. It’s a beautifully engineered tool, but getting it set up was a nightmare. Their KISS calibration and setting the guide fingers to fit the kerf from the test cut was difficult to perfect because too much of it was subjective. You turn the red knob until the fingers come together… but how tight?. After making the test cut you open out the guide fingers to fit the kerf… but how tight? There was e...

After Thirty years with my wife, 28 married we have called it quits. I am not a young man now and so starting over is awkward I have a new Lady in my life and have moved to Reedley Ca. I am currently seeking a new shop space in a commercial building. If I can find the right building I may teach a few hand tool classes. So I am thinking a shop from 1500 to 2000 square feet what say you, gentlemen and Lady.

How to install cabinet door on the thick carcase

12-29-2018 05:31 PM by Krunoslav | 0 comments »

A colleague from a similar forum was given the task of making a cupboard with 36 mm thick walls and doors that would completely cover the walls. Of course, hinges can not be seen. Blum does not have the original hinge for such a thing, so today I’ve discovered the solution with a hinge of 155 degrees. Here is a short video, maybe somebody needs it:

Shop stuff #143: A table for the TV

12-22-2018 03:35 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

My neighbour asked me if I could build a table for her TV to sit on. Originally, she wanted it painted, I talked her out of that after I milled up the stock for the legs. A lot of work using re claimed and left over wood but it turned out pretty decent in the end. I made this one a longer format as the holidays are upon us and I thought something to settle in and watch would be the way to go. This may depend on how well you get along with the rest of the family and how much alcohol is con...

Building the Stone and Wood Bridge Bench

12-20-2018 07:49 PM by BenhamDesign | 4 comments »

My latest design/build, a bench with a mahogany top fitted around a stone leg. The supporting arch is one piece that passes through hand cut angled mortises in the cross braces. The arch and cross braces are walnut, and the leg is mahogany wedged in place using a through tenon and walnut wedges. I hollowed out the stone with an angle grinder to make the weight more manageable. “If you want to check out how I built it “: Recap of the build video...
