Maple/oak project/desk #4: Into the land of stopped dados, and miss-cut bottoms

06-30-2015 09:35 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, last time, I had the four sides about together. Clamped them up into a box like shape As I needed some more layout work done. Had a 2’ x2’ sheet of 1/4” Oak plywood to try to cut into a bottom And, in theory, I could just measure the two directions and mark things out…..in theory yes, in this shop….Nope. Measured three times, laid out the lines, cut leaving the lines….1” off on the front to back measure? Ok, We’ll deal with th...

Insulated Garage Doors #1: Insulated Sectional Overhead

04-12-2012 11:02 PM by Peter | 2 comments »

I was inspired last week to find yet another use for my Sing Honeycomb Panels. We’re launching a line of insulated panels for overhead garage doors. I’ve noticed that too many nice homes have dinged up garage doors. It’s because garage doors are expensive to repair. You don’t want to replace a panel for a golf ball dent, so you let it go until the damage is beyond cosmetic. Soon, you’ve run into the garage door with your car or time has made the edges drafty, so ...

Maloof Low Back Chairs #1: Rough up

01-18-2014 02:02 AM by Dave G | 2 comments »

The hard maple table displayed in my projects needs chairs. We have a small house and a small dining room. The chairs must slide mostly under the table out of the way. Another LJ displayed his low back chair and the idea was born! I bought Charles Brocks plans and video. I chose hard maple to match the table. Sure it’s hard. But once you’re grinding with carbide tools and sanding to sculpt it doesn’t matter much. I’m keeping track of my hours because I...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #1: Getting started

09-06-2015 04:33 PM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

I’ve been working my way up to this project over the last few years. I have an old “80’s oak” desk in my home office and while it is fine, the style is out of date. When I started in woodworking, my hope was to learn enough and hone my skills to be able to replace my desk some day. I can across this design by Kevin Rodel on the Fine Woodworking site, but there was not much information on it just a few photos. I came across a free plan from Mr. Rodel (FWW July/Aug...

building a bench and stuff #4: Beginning of the leg vise

05-23-2015 03:52 PM by TheFridge | 2 comments »

I milled the leg and spacers/support block out of the same chunk of oak. The screw and nut are the remnants of what I bought for my end vise. A cove cut on the table saw and an 3/8” round over gave me the basic profile. I smoothed it out of with a whatever rasp and file I had on hand. Then marked and mortised for the nut. I’ll probably put a dab of epoxy on final assembly of the nut to make sure to hold it captive. It’s damn good fit if I say so myself. ...

Homemade Benchtop Router Table

11-03-2012 03:09 PM by mxrdrver | 2 comments »

I finished up this router table the other day, and thought I would post a couple pics so others could see. The stand is from an old Ridgid table saw stand. I just cut the legs down with my angle grinder. The top is made from 2 pieces of 1/2” MDF topped with plastic laminate. It measures 20”x30”x1” thick. I took special care when I routed out the insert top. I wanted it to look like professional. I epoxied 5/16 nylock nuts all round for the leveling bolts to set in. The...

Cheap Table: finishing up the base

02-04-2013 02:52 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, front and back leg assemblies are out of the clamps. Need to fit a brace between the front and back apron. Since this is a Hand Tool exercise, I guess i will do it that way First a piece of scrap needed to be cut to length. Nice Sycamore Handled Crosscut saw. Next, lay out for a Dovetail. One on each end. I used an old router bit to mark out the dovetail shape. Then a little saw work Then cut out the waste with a chisel. I chop down at an angle to match the shape...

The Re-designed Mortise Pal #1: Evolution to Excellence

12-05-2010 11:14 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

If you didn’t have to improve a great product would you bother? Would your improvements be incremental or would you really go for it? This is a blog not just about the simplicity and functionality of this jig, but also the progression of the inventor’s ideas and how they are incorporated into the latest model. For those not familiar with this tool, it is a router jig that facilitates perfectly sized and matched mortises for fixed or loose tenon joinery. It was won many awar...

How to Cut Rabbets with Hand Tools

05-03-2014 12:36 PM by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I’m excited to share a quick video tutorial about how to cut rabbet joints by hand, with a few simple hand tools. This method focuses on cutting rabbets along the grain, which is especially useful for cutting moldings (first step in using hollows & rounds molding planes), picture frames, etc. Go to this original blog entry (here) for some links to the tools that I used in this tutorial (you can use variations):-Marking gauge (I...
