Adjustable Height Rolling Outfeed Cabinet #1: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

06-02-2011 08:53 AM by newTim | 3 comments »

But the past I am condemned to repeat is the creation of a new design that I have never done before, am not certain of the existence or availability of key materials and hardware, and possess the barest notion of what it is I want the thing to do. Welcome to my world. I knew I wanted a sturdy outfeed table atop a cabinet that would provide much needed storage in my small shop and would provide another work surface. If that were the extent of my desires I’d have whipped it out in n...

Roubo Cabinet #11: Carcase Glue-Up

06-01-2011 06:01 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 8 comments »

You’ve heard of spot welding, as applies to metal? Well, the partitions in this cabinet are spot-glued, specifically with a brushed-out dab of glue at the leading edges of each. That should allow for movement with the seasons without cracking. The partitions ride in matched dadoes that must be lined up right and drawn tight between four large panels that are glued at the dovetailed corners. Oh, and the back panel floats completely in grooves in the side panels with a ‘button dowel’ at top ...

Wedding Clock #8: Tapers & Out of the Shop

05-28-2011 02:34 AM by kenn | 3 comments »

This feels like real progress! By the end of this blog, you’ll be able to see that this clock is actually coming together. When I stopped last time, I was waiting for the BLO to dry on the front frame. It dried. Now I need to apply shellac. I decided on clear to let the cherry darken and age on it own. Maybe on their 50th wedding anniversary the couple will pull out some old pictures and see how the tone has mellowed, just like them. Here’s a shot of the shellac being appli...

This is a work in progress.My first attempt at a foot stool The tenons are carved by hand. I just drilled the proper sized mortise in a piece of scrap and kept testing the fit and carve some more till i got the right dep...

Wedding Clock #7: Three "F's" or Disaster Recovery

05-27-2011 01:24 AM by kenn | 1 comment »

The Front Frame is Finished (ala 3 “F’s). Here’s how I made the front frame and recovered from my disaster. I started by jointing the inside edges of the stiles flat and square with my #7 plane. The a little layout and I was off and running …no, I meant mortising. Chopping down and levering up the waste, I made a mortise. Checking to make sure I made a square mortise as I went along. As you know, the ends of the mortise are saved for last. Once the center is exc...

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...

Improved Workbench #4: Bracing, Tail Vise, and Planning Sled

05-20-2011 06:37 PM by Brian024 | 1 comment »

In this part I cover how I made the braces to insure the top stays flat, and I’ll use a router to cut the groves for the pipes to sit it that make of the main vise. I’ll also make the planning sled for the side. And for those who are wondering, yes I am wearing sandals.

Roubo Cabinet #8: Dados and Partitions

05-20-2011 05:29 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 7 comments »

I’ve got a carcase that needs to be divided into sections to house five drawers for hand tools at the Roubo. As is usually the case with my shop work, there are more efficient ways to put drawers in cabinets than the methods I’ve chosen. Part of the answer to that is this Cabinet will be matched up to a bench that, as a pair of shop tools, will be productive way beyond my time with both of them. The balance falls into the mantra ‘practice with a purpose.’ I build things for the shop using too...

Box making with Andrew Crawford in England

05-18-2011 08:31 PM by RogerBean | 13 comments »

Last year I wrote a review here on LJ about my visit with Andrew Crawford in England. Andrew has made some of the finest boxes ever produced, and has turned some of his efforts to sharing his knowledge and methods with others. My three days with him last year were so productive and helpful that I decided to spend some more time with him this spring at his shop in Shropshire. Andrew’s shop is located in a nineteenth century converted barn on the historic Acton Scott farms site (sort o...

Wedding Clock #5: Don't Get Mad at Me, The Back

05-18-2011 03:35 AM by kenn | 5 comments »

As a reminder, I am making an Art and Craft style clock based on one at The Grove Park Inn for my eldest daughter’s upcoming wedding. See post #2 for the goal. I’ve decided to make the back frame and panel assembly first. A little sharpening is order before I get started. Next I planed the stiles flat and square with my Lie-Nielsen #7. Then I just couldn’t handle the suspense anymore and had to lay out the panels and rails to see how it was going to look. This allowed ...
