Sketchup Tutorials #1: Through Dovetails

06-13-2010 08:51 AM by David Kirtley | 7 comments »

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...

Chair for the study desk unit for my son #1: finally started the last project

05-02-2009 04:06 AM by Junji | 5 comments »

So this will be the last project of “study desk unit for my son”. I have been thinking about this ever since I started this while project, but the other day somebody here is LJ introduced me the projects of Nakashima, so I decided to go with that taste. (thank you Todd and one.hit.wonder) So here is the plan, kind of easy one as always. From woodworking I am not sure about the extra support legs, I know it will be much cooler without them, but I have to make it strong, s...

Firewood Plane #2: Not so alternative plane blanks

10-31-2011 06:13 AM by tr33surg3on | 0 comments »

I decided to abandon the firewood plane blank after I realized it was lodgepole pine. I’m playing it safe by using a Maple turning blank. It was about 2×2x20. I cut it down to two 10” segments and glued them together to make a 2×4x10 blank. It will be a little wider than necessary, but I’ll have plenty of room for error when I rip the sides. It also turned out the blade on my thrift-store #5 is more pitted than I had hoped. I sharpened it as best I cou...

Hand Tool Journey #15: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 3

05-10-2013 09:52 PM by Airframer | 8 comments »

I’m pretty excited right now. I just finished attaching the legs to the hinge and so far nothing has fallen apart! From what I can tell the hardest part is behind me and now it is just a matter of shaping and fitting the adjuster arc to the legs. I also got the fine tuning nut built up and tapped. I still need to make an adjusting screw for the arc but that won’t take very long. Today at the OB appointment we were told that we will be induced on the 20th so only a week ...

Butcher Block Kitchen Table #2: Progress on the Legs

04-21-2010 05:43 AM by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

I got the legs all milled up, 1 3/4” square, and cut the bevels on the bottom. I screwed a fence to my mitre gauge, which had a block of wood glued to it which allowed me to keep the bevels somewhat consistent. I say somewhat, because I think my mitre gauge didn’t lock down when tightened, as there is a very slight variation in the bevels so they don’t meet up in the back on all the legs. Obviously nothing to care about – the only way you’d be able to see the ...

Replacement Speaker Boxes #1: Speaker Boxes

12-17-2011 10:06 AM by Nighthawk | 1 comment »

Take two speaker boxes that are worse for wear, and kind of water logged. Then say, “heck they aren’t exactly cheap speakers either. ummmmmmm” Mission speakers. Remove guts of both speakers. Put in plasted container and seal. Turn round and now say… “ummm now what?... followed by a gulp, ”...and he wants two… hmmmm “ Okay we first made a router jig so we can do some nice daedo to fit the speakers into and then finish the cross cut tab...

Outdoor Furniture #10: Patio Planter Boxes - Day 1

06-05-2012 02:04 AM by Retsof | 0 comments »

I started a new project today. I’m building two large patio planter boxes. The final dimensions should be close to 41” long x 24” wide x 20” high. I’m working from Woodsmith’s Outdoor Woodworking book. Here’s a link to their website: http://woodsmithstore.com/w1021.html There were a lot of cuts to make for this build. The diagrams for this project are pretty detailed and that’s a good thing because there is no cut list provided....
