Wooden Double Action Hinge

02-17-2012 06:47 AM by Joshuah | 17 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I posted a project of a wedding ring box I made for my wife. It actually received quite a few comments about how I made the hinges…which I guess we are calling double action hinges. Since there was quite a few questions on how I made it, I decided that I should probably make a tutorial, considering I learn so much from tutorials on here. The box had hinges that were only about 4 cm, but for this I am doing larger ones so my camera picks up the steps better. ...

Secret Compartment Toy Box #2: Secret Compartment Toy Box Continued...

08-22-2009 07:13 PM by John M | 1 comment »

First, thanks for all the great comments so far! I’ve only been here for a few hours and I already feel like I found the best place to explore woodworking. : ) So in my planning I figured that I would build a toy box and hide the secret compartment into the frame/trim area in the bottom. I would attach a drawer to one of the sides of the trim which would act as the drawer front. The biggest issue I had with my planning was how to lock the thing. I thought of a few different de...

Raised Garden Fencing #5: Finally - Done & Installed

06-29-2010 08:39 PM by BlankMan | 9 comments »

Wow. I can’t believe I started this project a month ago almost to the day and this took me a month. Granted I got sidetracked with a few other projects along the way but still. It was kind of the kind of project I don’t really like. Repetitive. I like making one, or maybe two of something, to make twelve of something got a bit boring at times. Too much like an assembly line. Doing the first of each operation on the first one then the second was fun, on the twelfth, not so fun. But...

Planers can't flatten boards....really?

04-10-2008 06:18 PM by pashley | 13 comments »

The common wisdom to flatten raw stock, is to first plane a face flat on a jointer. To get to opposite face paralleled and flat, you run that newly flattened side face down in a planer to your desired thickness. Sounds familiar, I’m sure. Hard to do that with 8” stock when you have a 6” jointer though. The common wisdom also states that if you just try to run that raw stock through a planer, flipping it each time until you get it flat on both sides, you’ll end up wi...

Episode 82 Entertainment Center Part 3

10-15-2010 01:44 AM by kosta | 6 comments »

Episode 82 Entertainment Center Part 3 from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I cut the dados for the 2 middle panels. Then I dry fit the top bottom side and middle panels. Then I get the measurements for the door compartment shelves. I am cutting dados that are 1/4 in deep and 5/8 in wide. I am using a ryobi 5/8 in straight bit to cut the dados and it worked better than I though it would. In part 2 I had said that I was going to use the T square I built for trimming the panels down to...

Creating Router Support: first use of D4R Leigh jig with VRS

04-01-2008 10:29 AM by BarryW | 11 comments »

Here’s my first use of my D4R Leigh Dovetail Jig with VRS router support and vacuum connection. I must say it’s a little more complicated than I thought it would be at first and I’m not certain how I’ll adjust for other thicknesses of wood other than 3/4 at the moment…but I suspect that as I use it I’ll test and try to do things in a new way. I still have some adjusting since I had trouble with the VRS router support/vacuum connection. It wasn’t as...
