Traditional German Tool Cabinet #2: Traditional German Tool Cabinet

02-15-2010 04:12 PM by Waldschrat | 10 comments »

Well, Here is my first Blog. Hope you like it, here it goes… So I was looking at some tool Cabinets and I decided it was time, after being asked by a number couple fellow woodworkers, to post some plans on building a what I consider a typical, unchanged for many years, German style Cabinetmakers’ tool Cabinet. I made some drawings and I hope they are adequate for everyone. I am not certian as to if this even interest anybody, but if there are any questions, or anyone need...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #4: Setting laminations to final thickness

02-14-2010 06:09 AM by sras | 8 comments »

Once I have the 3 lamination blanks cut to width I thickness sand the strips to reach the final dimension. I have tried using my planer, but when the strips get this thin it is easy to end up with damage. I set my ShopSmith up as a disc sander and use a thicknessing jig. I first showed the use of this in a previous blog. There was some interest in a more detailed description so here it is. Here is the setup. Basically it is a 3 1/2 inch tall bullnosed block clamped to the fence. The...

Works for me #2: One-hand Dust Gate

02-13-2010 10:57 PM by Dave Owen | 4 comments »

A tip I submitted for improving the operation of metal dust gates was published in Popular Woodworking a year or so ago. They have given me permission to post this tip for the benefit of those who might not have seen it before. This tip allows you to avoid having to use two hands to position and secure a standard metal dust gate. The concept is to hold the gate in any desired position with rare earth magnets rather than with the small screw included with the gate. There are two ways t...

A Jig that worked well for me

02-12-2010 06:37 AM by danr | 11 comments »

Hello, OK, I figured out the picture thing. Most of the photos are cropped off on the right side (as the instructions said they would be). Next time I will take this into account when taking the pics…..... Just wanted to post a quick blog to show a new jig that I have built to cut spline slots for a Greene and Greene table top (i.e. the bread-board ends). I have seen a few ways to do this here on this site and other places (thanks to all LumberJocks for all of the great ideas I ha...

The trouble with Yew

02-12-2010 03:10 AM by JuniorJoiner | 11 comments »

I’m not sure how many Lumberjocks are familiar with Pacific Yew(taxus breufolia i think)I first heard of it a few years ago. here on the west coast of Canada it grows. hidden away and rare beyond measure, few if any typical wood suppliers carry it. And what is available is often small and gnarly. Being on the local wood kick. I decided it was a wood for me. Hard and a Rare orange colour, I did not think it could have any drawbacks. Then I tried to find some. Yew, as a wood is as ...

Solid Wood Door glue-ups / Tips and Techniques

02-11-2010 03:15 AM by KnotWright | 6 comments »

One of the best things about Lumberjocks is that an individual can be exposed to so many different ways to do the same task. While you are working in your shop, you aren’t really exposed to too many different ways, normally the way you were taught, or how you figured it out, tends to be the way we always end up doing things. This way might not be the most efficient or productive, but it does get the job done. My question for everyone is how do you do the following task: I”...
