The Tone Project

12-28-2009 07:19 PM by JimDaddyO | 6 comments »

As a new member here, I figured that I should share the project I am working on. I am by no means a luthier, or a highly skilled woodworker (yet). This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. It started by felling an ash tree a few years ago and getting it milled into boards. Here I am in my large workshop planing the boards to thickness. Note the fancy chip/dust collector. Did my first bookmatch ever! Made a core from maple. glueing the back to the ...

Tool Box #2: case work

08-12-2014 11:01 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, spent a bit of time getting the case put together. Things just seem to roost on my benchtop. Setting the panels upside down on an almost flat benchtop. Clamp an end panel to the front/back panel. The longer panels have a series of counter-bored screw holes, about seven per corner. Clamp a corner together, add a few screws, move the clamp a bit to uncover the one or two that are hiding under them. Work my way around, by adding the other end panel, rotate the three piece set aro...

My Build along With Charles Neil Update

03-09-2010 11:16 PM by a1Jim | 10 comments »

Hey Friends! It’s been a little while since I told you about Charles Neil inviting me to build this project along with him and about him sending me the material to build his newest of “Mastering Woodworking” subscription webcast, where he’s building or rather “we” will be building a lowboy. It started last week and another installment is coming this Thursday. It started with the making of the cabriole legs, and as usual, Charles makes it a lot easier th...

Box jointed box

06-28-2010 02:20 PM by JimDaddyO | 5 comments »

In conjunction with a bunch of other guys on another forum, we are putting together a group build of a tube guitar amp. My contribution will be a raw, unfinished, rough sanded cabinet for the amp. We finally got the dimensions nailed down to where I could make a prototype. The project gave me a chance to use my new TS box joint jig (Shop Notes version). I have a bunch of 16’ rough cut pine 1×12’s. So I lopped off 2 lengths long enough to do 1 long side and 1 short side...

Desk build #3: Nurse desk: Some glue-up

08-27-2009 07:31 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

RecapMy niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, baring all for...

Pie Safe #3: More progress

01-08-2013 11:45 PM by scamp238 | 4 comments »

My daughter has been making some progress on the pie safe. She has gotten it almost to where you can tell what it is going to be. She has finished punching one of the panels and is working on another. I have a question, are there anyShe has finished punching one of the panels and is working on another. I would love to hear some ideas. By the way, the panel was punched using a sharpened nail and a hammer. I thought it came out good. We opted for a bread box opening ...

mitre jig

01-21-2014 10:05 PM by dclark1943 | 15 comments »

Recently Big Al, i.e. “Boxguy” posted a jig he had built for cutting accurate mitre joints. I built one this afternoon, and thought I would share my attempt at making the same jig. Total cost for the jig was around $17.00 – - the all in one clamp. The time was 2 1/2 hours. MDF remnants, left over material from other projects, and junk drawer parts finished it to this point. Still have to finish up the stop system, but was anxious to use it today, so will add the stop tom...

Tool Box #2: lid building

08-17-2014 01:47 AM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

and panel raisin’ Got the Pine panel out of the clamps. Hand planed to as flat as I could get in. Time to raise a panel. Same way as the side panels. Mark out a “stop line” about 1” in from the edge. Take a #4 sized handplane, set it a bit deep. Go at a diagonal to the grain. Plane until you reach the stop line, check the remainder of the edge for straightness. As you get close to the finish line, back off the depth of cut. I do the end grain ...
