Thought I’d share one of my more popular projects with everyone. This is a candle holder that I make quite a few of and still now and again make mistakes as you will see. I hope everyone enjoys this episode—
Just a quick tutorial on how to draw through dovetails in Sketchup. In this one, I would not even want to try pins first. Tails first all the way in Sketchup. This is the first time I used Photobucket and the images are a bit odd sized to match the forum. I will fix them as I get stuff figured out. Ok, you want to make a piece the length and width of your stock: Take the end where you want to make the dovetails and right click to get the menu and select divide. You will want to m...
here are some photos of my Radiator Cover project i have around 12 to complete and Medecine cabinets in the bathrooms. Now i have the Leigh FMT Pro this M&T work is all so much better . I will start the next one soon and plan to make accurate cut plans first this time as i have been building an cutting as i go and this just creates more expensive firewood. has any one got ideas on how to space the slats it always seems to casue me problems on the layout. The FMT kig is just wonder...
Another piece of scrap has befallen my assorted blades, and has now become the slats for the bench. It was a large hunk of Doug Fir or Pine. It was originally going to be a large slab bench, but I decided it would be too large & unwieldy. It was 3” x 12” x 8’ – warped, twisted, split, cupped, weather-worn and worm-eaten; beautiful!Now it’s 6 slats 2 1/4” w x 1 1/2” h x 52” long. The previously mentioned character charms still exist, just...
So my plan for vacation this week was to finish up a project I started a couple of months ago. My goal was to make a rolling cabinet for my little Ryobi table saw. I kept having to pull it out from against the wall, plug it in, put it next to my bench that I use for an out feed table, and then start to make cuts. I made an attempt at some dust collection putting a thin board at the bottom of the saw where it mounted to the metal stand. I put a port for shop vac hose, but it was less than ...
I did some work on mom recipe box today! I try resawing on the table saw then I finish the cut by hand, I am doing a lot of hand work on this project! Note I dont remend resawing on the table saw it’s not the best method.
Well all the frames are built, eight 2’ x 10’ and four 2’ x 4’. Next step is to stain them all and add the chicken wire fencing. All twelve glued up Here are the four smaller ones stained using a all weather neutral/natural stain. It sure did bring out the red tones in the Western Cedar. I do like how that looks.
PART II I suggest that you read first the first part of the series for a better understanding… The drawer In making the drawer, all the difficulties were turned to an easy task because of proactiveness. We cannot avoid changes of idea, plans, joints, size, cuts and other problems while doing the job. I don’t have blue pirnts neither actual plans in doing this project specially when you deal with recycled or scraps materials. Here you can find: undersize, grooves, dents...
I have used the glue and sawdust and made my own fillers. I read about using epoxy and sawdust and gave it shot and this is what I came up with. Enjoy—http://blip.tv/file/3705398
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...
