Making a Red Star for the Red Star Kim box

05-04-2010 05:45 PM by BritBoxmaker | 16 comments »

This was a challenging commission from a very dear friend. Make a box containing her Red Star.Well the starting point was a mozaic she has hanging at her home, conveniently posted on her Facebook page (I do love the net, everything at you fingertips). I decided to base the design around the large, black bordered, star in the top left. The design was accepted so here I went. The first question I asked myself was – How to do it? The clue was in the mozaic and heres how I did it. P...

Just added a PinnAcle fence and dust ports

05-04-2010 04:41 AM by sandhill | 10 comments »

I have been wanting to get this project completed for some time and now its on its way to being done. I built this about a year ago and it had served well but it was difficult to set up without a fence until now. I picked up the PinnAcle fence on closeout at Wood Craft and got the dust port parts while I was there as well. I had the T-Slots so I put them in and I will make some feather boards tomorrow and install the front T-Slot for that T-slot then one day this week I will go back to Wood C...

Hi Cody I am a tile setter who recently got into woodworking as a hobby over the last year and I’m not in to making anything to big or fancy really just some little projects around the house as well as remodeling my home. I have been having some trouble finding good hard wood and the prices are really high. With the current economy I thought prices would be down a little but I guess not. Well anyways so far I have been getting my wood from the local home depot and ace hardware but I wa...

General thoughts on life and woodworking #1: First comments

05-03-2010 07:38 PM by Jack_T | 1 comment »

I have decided to start a blog on my journey in woodworking and how it integrates with my journey through life. Hopefully, some will find it interesting and possibly some might learn something. In the latter case I will claim no credit as it will belong to the individual. I will only be grateful that my self centered musings were of help. In later entries I will discuss my background, my shop, my projects and of course my thoughts such as they are.

Mirror, Mirror #1: How do you frame an 8 sided mirror?

05-01-2010 02:37 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

How do you frame an 8 sided mirror? Beats me. This is my solution. The construction is a whole new way of thinking for me. Fingers crossed for success. My sister wanted a framed mirror for her kitchen wall. she had a large free hanging one but it fell and the mirror and frame shattered. Of course I can make one right? Hmm…. She wants it 8 sided. I want to bolt it to the wall, not hang it like a picture. Here’s my solution so far. After she had the mirror cut at the glass com...

Zero Clearance on the Table Saw

04-30-2010 02:54 AM by taidsturning | 11 comments »

I cut a lot of small parts in my segmented bowl making. Lots of these cuts are made at blade angles other than 0 degrees. Operating with a zero clearance insert is desirable but the variety of blade angles makes using one difficult. I would need a bunch. I use a lot of packing tape to hold small parts while gluing and the other day it occurred to me to stretch a thickness or two of the tape over the blade slot with the blade down and then lift the blade to cut through the tape and leave i...
