NOT your average screen door#2

10-09-2014 06:30 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well, after much cussing and fighting, got all the rails fitted to their mortises. This being the last on this side of the door. Wound up making it an open ended affair. The lock rail took the longest, and I think I traced it’s ancestry back about ten generations… Ok, when I go to assemble the door for the final time, I will install a few wedges into each tenon, then pin the joint with a couple of dowel pins. Managed to measure for the center stile, and get the measu...

Am I just picky or what?

08-14-2010 01:22 AM by Dez | 2 comments »

I realize I am a picky little sucker but am I over the line on this or am I wrong in the way I see this?From the http://www.garymkatz.com/trimtechniques/hiddenpivotbookcaseinstall.htm Edgebanding plywood shelvingI’ve done a lot of edgebanding and always hated the hair-line crack that develops between the plywood and the solid stock. That gap is caused by the inner plywood endgrain_ swelling from the glue, which puts a little belly in the edge and forces the banding away from top and bottom...

Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #5: Finished

08-27-2014 09:25 AM by icemanhank | 10 comments »

Hi everybody, I have finished the flute now and I am very happy with how it has turned out. I was quite concerned about getting the finger holes correct and had some help from Charlie Mato-Toyela who spent about 90’ on the phone from the USA to Australia to help me get the pitch and the tuning correct, Charlie is a indeed wonderful person. His Youtube page is Blue Bear Flutes which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is contemplating making one of these lovely instrument...

Wood movement and battens

06-16-2009 04:10 AM by CanalboatJim | 2 comments »

In a recent project posting a lumberjock had used battens to flatten a curling sign he had built. It brought to mind an experience I had using battens. When I retired from teaching, I got a part time job at a local wood shop. It was like I died and went to heaven. Using great power tools with wood that I didn’t have to pay for, who could want for more. One of the first things that struck me was the tremendous amount of scrap generated by the shop. I could not bring myself to toss wood...

48" Pocket Door #9: Really this time, milling the stiles and rails

10-20-2011 05:06 AM by GregD | 1 comment »

The last installment of this series was originally titled Milling the stiles and rails and described prepping the blanks for the panels. Sigh. Sorry about that. I’ve fixed that entry title. This door would be for the passage between my foyer and formal living room, so I thought the best side should face the foyer. I inspected each blank for the stiles and rails and picked out the best side as the “foyer” side, marking each part with chalk to indicated what part it was...

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #5: Bottom front and back rails

11-30-2012 11:43 PM by Kyle | 4 comments »

The last blog was about joining the sides on the top and now this one is about joining them from the bottom. This part is going to be a little more tricky. This is my first indication that I’m actually building the beginning of what will be a giant puzzle when it comes to glue up time......If you’ve read the blogs before this one, you’ll remember that I made a triple mortise and a double mortise on each of the legs. If you don’t remember or didn’t see the blog, t...

My new work bench

02-21-2011 02:42 AM by Tinnocker | 5 comments »

When my darling wife allowed me to use our family room as my wood shop I needed to make a bench. living on a fixed income causes me to be very creative in acquiring tools and materials. I have posted about Freecycle before so I won’t rehash that again unless anyone has any specific questions. Anyway I did some dumpster diving and was able to get a few old solid wood doors, which I promptly took apart and made a down and dirty work bench. It was ugly and a bit wobbly but it served it&...

Tool Cabinet Build #4: 3 down 1 gluing plus a Bonus Handtool Tip of The Day...

09-17-2013 05:13 PM by Airframer | 8 comments »

Over the last couple of days before and after work I have had an assembly line of sorts going on in the shop for the glue up of the side, top and bottom panels of the cabinet case. I am up to 3 done and one more in clamps as we speak. As each one came out of the clamps and a new one went in I went about cleaning up and flattening the faces with a myriad of hand planes and my scraper. I purposely made each panel slightly oversized just in case I needed to rip a glue joint and re-joi...

Time to build a medicine cabinet.

05-05-2010 12:37 AM by Blinky | 3 comments »

I’m hoping to get a medicine cabinet built in very near future. I have the design in my head. Bought an old medicine cabinet with a really nice etched mirror & beveled glass. Then found another one, bigger.Anyway, I’m thinking I’ll build the door around the mirror size, & the cabinet to fit the door size. It will be built flush against wall above sink, with simple moulding that matches the woodwork throughout the house. I wish I knew Sketchup better. It’...

Mobile woodshop

06-20-2011 05:16 PM by thiswoodshop | 3 comments »

Hi, Just read about this mobile woodshop. I think this is a great idea to keep kids engage and keep interest in the trade alive in the younger generation. This is a great idea. http://willieswoodshop.com/ Insert from his website… Welcome to Willie’s Woodshop Since 1985,  Stephen Willner (Willie) has been working in a  classroom and credentialed by state of California , teaching basic woodworking skills to  children.
