Home Made Tools and Jigs #1: Self Centering 1/2" Dowel Drilling Jig for the Invisio - Hinge

Made from $12.00 worth of bronze bushings and a shaft collar. The shaft collar has a set screw that holds a 1/8” drill bit in place, so you would need to use 1/8” axles for your hinge pieces. The largest bushing has an inside diameter of 1/2”. The second bushing an outside diameter of 1/2” and an inside diameter of 3/8”. The shaft collar has an outside diameter of 3/8”, takes a 1/8” drill bit, and uses an allen set screw that takes a 1/16R...

realization

So I was sitting one day trying to figure out what to do with a big chunk of cherry that a friend had given me.see the thing is that it wasn’t dried properly so it cracked like a toronto city road and had knots all thru it…. I didn’t have the heart to tell my friend it was useless. Plus I was stubborn and determined to find a way to make something nice out of it.I cut a couple useful chunks off to use as accent pieces in the future, but mostly it just keep getting put under...

new tool (sort of) Bench Stop

05-24-2015 03:25 PM by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

Bench stop!I have an “out door” work bench out by my garage. it stays covered with a tarp most of the time. I’ve been working against a wooden peg that frequently slips. So Yesterday I took an old RR spike I had lying around. It is almost the right shape to start with! made sure I knew where my helper was: lit a fire: and started banging on it! when I was happy with the shape of it, I put the fire out and let it cool. it neither needs or wa...

What to do in the shop cleanup #1: Left over wood

05-09-2015 12:51 PM by marksalot2005 | 5 comments »

This morning in a great whirlpool in my brain. With my left over wood from projects. As a person that has always had a problem throwing away. Things that still have use. I just do not used them now, but may in the future. It has always been my luck as soon as I got rid of something. Within two or three weeks I wish I had that item. Todays problem is left over wood. I could use a few pointers from others that have gone thru this. At what point do you just toss out pieces when you have so ma...

MY STRAIGHTEDGE ROUGH CUTTING JIG.First picture (jig with spalted Maple) The first picture you see is why I built the jig. If you have been following my journey and saw the other jig that I built for my band saw you know that this is the next step. I am truly in awe of what Mother Nature has given me. Picture 2 ( side view of completed straightedge jig with six-inch hold downs) The next picture is my rough drawing of what a poor man’s jig looks like. I decided to u...

Thorsen House Cabinet #12: A little on Ebony plugs....

04-22-2015 07:30 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

This Thorsen House cabinet repro is probably the third large-scale Greene & Greene project I’ve worked on in addition to numerous smaller lighting items. Common to the lot of them are masses of Ebony splines and plugs. Lots of information exists on people’s own ideas of how to pillow, round, shape, soften and relieve simple square plugs. Probably the most common that I’ve come across is William Ng’s tactic of chucking up a squared and thicknessed stick and pillo...

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #4: The reveal

04-13-2015 07:35 AM by GCM | 5 comments »

The finished project: The finish on this project is shop made country/shabby chic using chalk paint made from cheap flat ceiling paint tinted with even cheaper poster paints, mixed with not-so-cheap calcium carbonate, and shop made finishing past wax made from a chunk of bees wax and boiled linseed oil. One coat of Ivory chalk paint, 2 coats of Cyan chalk paint (first coat epic fail due to miscalculation of amount required), and 2 coats of finishing wax after sanding and distressing. ...
