New victim/addict

08-01-2011 04:40 PM by Michael Wilson | 18 comments »

Happy Monday o/ I recently moved from a teeny one-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn Heights to a house in the sticks a few hours north. It’s a lot of space to fill. I get to have a reasonable dresser, a bed AND couch instead of a ratty old futon, etc. I started furniture shopping and my jaw hit the floor. I half jokingly suggested to my favorite bartender that I could outfit a wood shop for the cost of the dresser I wanted and make my own ugly as sin but sturdy and functional furn...

Determining the angle of a compound miter

02-16-2012 05:48 AM by clazman | 9 comments »

I realize that there is a lot of info on determining the angle in a compound miter. However, whilst reading some comments on this topic I was taken aback as to how many readers felt that 3D CAD was the only way of determining that angle. That is simply not true. This angle can be determined, with the use of a pencil and paper and mild drafting skills. 2D CAD can replace the drafting table and improve the computational accuracy of the joint. The method relies on creating several auxiliar...

Laid out some toys but this was just the tip of the iceberg. Set up a “high-tech workbench” after using a “saw tub” to cut what I needed off a plank. Then the rest gets clamped in place Then clamp the new saw bench top in place for a little joinery work used this old saw to make a few cuts checked the angled parts with a gauge, and a small handplane to smooth it down. the chisels did most of the removal work. angle is about 12 degrees. Time to ma...

Pochade Box in progress #3: Pallette, trim and oil

11-29-2013 06:42 AM by Jon1094 | 4 comments »

Yesterday I completed the combination pallete and wet canvase holder. It is constucted out of birch plywood with oak inserts for holding the wet canvases. The pallete is finished with two coats of BLO. It is shown out of the box with an inserted canvase and inside the box with the pallete in view. I trimmed the drawers with walnut and put two coats of Danish oil on the box. I’ll let the oil dry for three or four days and then finish with satin wipe on polyurethane. ...

to biscuit or not to biscuit

01-09-2010 09:08 PM by richgreer | 18 comments »

Several members of my local woodworking club believe that biscuits add no additional strength when gluing up most boards. They (and I) believe that they are helpful if you are gluing up boards that are oily and do not normally glue up well. They (and I) also believe that in certain situations the biscuits can aid in alignment. I will also add that I like to use them when gluing into end grain. However, when making a table top by glueing up oak, walnut, cherry, etc. boards side to sid...

Solid Pine 2x12 Speaker Cabinet #2: Dry Fit & Glue-Up Pictures

02-26-2011 03:23 AM by Michael J. Moore | 1 comment »

So I picked up 8 Jet Clamps then I returned 4, and ordered 4 Jorgensen Clamps. There was no shortage of shipping issues but after 3 returns, 2 delivery exceptions, and 6 different clamps going back and forth either because of missing parts or being damaged I finally got it all worked out and glued up my first speaker cabinet build. Here’s some eye candy… I used my new Woodpeckers Box Clamp to square it up as well.Fun stuff.

Tool thoughts #49: Greetings from beyond the edge of the world

07-04-2013 03:47 PM by NedB | 5 comments »

Hi gang, I know some of you have thought I fell over the edge of the world… Not at all. I simply haven’t had much blog time, or if I did have time, I didn’t have a lot of progress to report. That is what I’ve been ‘up to’, and who really needed to see yet another set of end grain boards in progress here on LJ’s? the LOML booked me into a show this coming weekend, and I’ve been out in the shop going through all of the necessary ...
