Tips and Techiques #2: The Somewhat Invisible Hinge Tutorial

03-05-2015 03:49 AM by Jerry | 22 comments »

Okay, I was asked to post a how to for the, I guess I’ll start calling it “vanishing” hinge, since it’s not completely invisible. Anyway I struggled with posting this tutorial, because in this instance things went badly, but I think it’s just as important to publish the mistakes as the successes, because that way whoever reads this can see where the pitfalls are. So in the spirit of full disclosure, here goes. Okay, this tutorial is for 1/2” wood and dow...

funny bird house - Zwitscherkasten oak

03-03-2015 08:57 PM by Friedel1 | 2 comments »

The idea came from a neighbor. He had an old “bird feeder” very rot and yet functional. I offered him this bird box rebuild. I then built many of them:-)First of beech. Ha! Evil mistake! Well, at that point I knew even less about wood properties, but that beech is so bends I never expected.So I built one from the remnants of a corner seat in oak, 19 mm, finger-jointed. As always, not screwed, not nailed … .just dowelled. The Domino system by Festool is just great.A carpenter swears by Lamello...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #66: American Girl Furniture patterns

03-03-2015 02:18 PM by jerrells | 1 comment »

Hello woodworkers I have a question. I have turned a lot of my attention to creating furniture for 18 inch dolls, like American Girl. I have the book by Dennis Simmons, “Making Furniture and Dollhouses … ” and it seems to be the only printed resource for patterns. I have every copy of ScrollSaw Woodworking mag that contains a pattern for this. I have searched the internet and “YES” I have seen all of the suggestions about using ratios to change patterns to fit...

Menards versus Irwin Clamps

03-02-2015 01:30 AM by Huckleberry | 1 comment »

Not sure what has happened, but when I was at Menards today I went through the clearance section as is my routine. To my surprise I found a stash of Irwin Quick Clamps not the little flimsy ones either. We’re talking the XP kind. So I bought up what they had there and went to another 20 minutes down the road only to find one there. Not sure if this is the deal Lowe’s went through with Bessey or not but I picked me up about a dozen of them…because you can never have enough.

Workbench #1: Vice Screws

03-01-2015 02:28 AM by kokayak | 2 comments »

Starting to work on the hardware for the Holtzapffel bench I am planing. Going to DIY my own wagon vice as I can’t afford the Benchcrafted Cadillac. Use Enco had a sale on Acme rod so I bought 3 3’ sections of 3/4” 6tpi acme rod, nuts and 3 hand screws. I only plan on using 12” sections of rod for the Moxon style twin screw and the wagon vice. The handwheels came without a hole bored in them so I drilled them out to 5/8” then used a grinder to take a short sectio...

Scrolling with Asthma #3: Vacuum Cart

02-13-2015 07:47 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

So I was surfing the net and found a video about a guy (a real woodworker) making a cart for his vacuum and accessories. This is of real interest to me as I have got to be real careful of breathing and the lungs. So I said, ” I have already got the cart so just build the rest. Started by rounding up all of my vacuum accessories (I think) and planning how to best store them. I came up with a system of three shelves. The first on has a cut out to fit the different size vacuum ...

My shop #3: Is my shop to small or do I have to many tools?

02-08-2015 03:34 PM by Dutchy | 10 comments »

Is my shop to small or do I have to many tools? It,s up to you. For the small machines I have thought making flipover stands, but on one stand I could put two, maybe three, machines on it. After thinking and trying I came to a solution and put five machines on a small bench. I can use all five without a lot of change. Overvieuw: Drawers for drills and so on: Drill table hanging on the left side: Drill press with mounted table: On the back a flexible drilling shaft and also p...
