Roubo Cabinet #9: Framed Backpanel

05-25-2011 06:59 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 3 comments »

I have a fully joined carcase with partitions for five drawers, but it’s only got two sides, a top and a bottom. ie: it needs a backside! Options I’ve thought about include a series of half-lap boards nailed into a rabbet at all four edges, and a floating frame and panel. Because one of these is necessarily more difficult to do than the other, you can likely guess which one I’ve chosen… I started work with material selection. For the frame I’ve used a pretty non-descript (re: crappy) piece...

Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #1: Concept and leg assembly

02-06-2015 05:57 AM by brianb6603 | 3 comments »

ConceptI have been needing a proper workbench for a while. The top of my table saw and fold up extension have been the only spot to use. I would love to have a large proper workbench but my shop is just too small for a full size bench. I have been looking at benches in Lumberjocks and marking some for reference. shipwright had come up with some excellent ideas. His concept for the Short Block V8 is a low cost way for a beginner to get a strong, stable small workbench using tools that many b...

Creche #2 #1: Frank Lloyd Wright inspired Creche (Sort of)

01-29-2013 12:10 AM by greg48 | 3 comments »

Actually, the inspiration came indirectly through his son John, who developed Lincoln Logs ® and who’s design I slightly amended. OK, the joinery technique is really just half lapped joints, but I thought the inspiration tag sounded better. Anyway, to move on, I was “tasked” by the wife to help build a crèche (manger) for her figures by next Christmas (this is not a last minute project). Having a handful of 18” x ½” dowels leftover from a previous project, I thought that I might just desi...

Pochade Box in progress #1: Pochade box

11-17-2013 09:37 AM by Jon1094 | 3 comments »

Several people have inquired about the Pochade box I am building for my wife. A Pochade box is a painter’s box that can be transported out into the field. Varying in size, shape and style they can contain any, all or none of the following: paints, pallets, brushes, solvents, canvases, etc. What a Pochade box really does well though is holds a canvas while one is in the field painting. Mine is made of walnut sides with a bookmatched maple top. The base, sub-base and drawers are ma...

Built in E-center, Yala #3: It is finished!

12-03-2011 03:13 PM by topcat | 3 comments »

I haven’t done one of these in a while. The build was a bit excruciating. Took 6 days, about 10-12 hrs. per day. Started on the Thurs. before Thanksgiving. That was an easy day. I just ran around getting all of the materials together and did some initial layout work and rough cut the plywood sides. These were full height and were too awkward to move around, so I used a straight edge and my new PC 8902 router to get the edges of the plywood ready for the face frames. Once the first side ...

ARMOIRE- Jewelry box - using RECYCLED WOOD #1: Armoire - Jewelry box

06-02-2010 10:49 AM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

Currently ongoing construction is a jewelry box but big enought to be called as armoire. I have done it in 3 sectors: the foot, the lower drawers, and the top drawers. THE FOOTThe first difficulty is to decide whether I can make a short cabriole leg for the front. That was a long process due Narra that I have is medium hard. Additionally, I dont have bandsaw and I have to use jigsaw. I bought 4 inch jigsaw blade. It was not a perfect one but it was okay. The secret chamber will also...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #3: I made it on time today!!!!

01-19-2011 06:38 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

Hello All, Well I finally made it on time today, even though it meant we had to hurriedly eat at A&W tonight :-) Although I wasn’t as early as I had planned as when I got to the College I started driving up their steep (and as it turns out very very slippery drive way) where someone was letting off a passenger about halfway up (I thought this was kind of odd, why not just let them off at the top where the buildings are) so I stopped because I wasn’t sure if there was enou...

How to Make Perfect Miter Joints

12-13-2010 11:54 PM by Bob Simmons | 3 comments »

It could be said that miter joints are definitely one of the most common joints in woodworking or carpentry. This is a joint that we are taught early on in our apprenticeships because we will be cutting miters throughout our entire career. As an apprentice it sounds simple enough to just cut a left 45 and a right 45 and glue then together to form a 90. If it were so simple then why are there open miter joints? Let’s take a look at how we can make perfect miter joints. View the comple...

Workbench #6: Skirts & Vises

09-05-2012 02:00 AM by twobyfour16 | 3 comments »

So, the top needed skirts, obviously, so time to laminate again. This time, I used 3 pieces of 1×8 black walnut. This gave me a skirt that is 2 1/4” thick, and 6 3/4” wide – after cleaning up the edges. I glued up enough blanks for the front skirt, two end skirts, and chops for both vises. I did not get very many pictures of this process, as I had plenty of lamination pics earlier….I will say that these skirts were BEEFY! And heavy. So, now I had to figure...
