Curved Front End Table #4: Fitting Doors, Curved & Veneered Drawer

04-09-2016 10:29 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this video, I cut the curved door panels to size using the bending form I used to create them. Then I cut the veneer for the edge banding, and install it on the doors to give the illusion that they are a solid bent panel. Then install the hinges and hang them. After the doors are hung, I can start working on the curved drawer front. I cut the face of the curve on a large blank and them create the half blind dovetails for the sides. I then veneer the face of the drawer front so that the ...

Shop Improvements #3: Dust Collection and Tools

04-04-2016 11:53 PM by Cathie Zimmerman | 1 comment »

We’re at it again! After using the router for the first time and finding just how much saw dust one can generate I decided to again rearrange the garage and dig out old tools and items to sell on offer up and Craigslist. We made about $250 which covered the cost of the 2 hp “industrial” single stage dust collector from Harbor Freight. I spoke to the manager about what these kids and I have been doing and that we needed a system. She went above and beyond by offering to honor...

Pallet Workbench Build #1: Tabletop Lumber Prep

03-30-2016 05:07 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

The time has come to start building my new workbench. I am using wood from some industrial size pallets from my work. The wood is some kind of spruce that came out of Hungary. In this installment I will be preparing the stock that will become the tabletop. I have to do some serious milling to get the stock straight and square before I could get it ready for glue-up. Be sure to participate in the comments section, and I hope you enjoy the video! View on YouTube Instagram: https://www.i...

Home Built 13" Jointer #10: Parallelogram

03-28-2016 12:25 AM by Ger21 | 4 comments »

While it’s been a while since I last posted, I’m still working on this a couple days a week. Painting takes a lot of time.All the baltic birch plywood gets a coat of epoxy on the edges to seal them. This keeps the paint from soaking into the end grain, and lets you get away with 2 coats from the rattle can. I’ve been painting most of the small parts for the last few weeks. It’s really a week long process.Seal edges with epoxy, led cure for 2 days before painting.San...

Curved Front End Table #3: Internal Shelf, Divider and Glue Up

03-26-2016 12:29 PM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

Now that I know the thickness of the doors, I can start working on the internal structure of the piece. I have to account for being able to put the lower shelf and divider for the drawer being put into the piece after glue up, so I have to do some unconventional things to get it to work. After I get those made, I taper the legs and do the initial glue up. Then I modify my bending jig to make the cut to separate the curved front into two doors. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...

Center Keyed Box Joints

03-18-2016 12:08 AM by Katz-Moses Woodworking | 6 comments »

Here is a video I just finished on Center Keyed Box Joints. One of the harder things about box joints is getting an equal sized key on both the top and the bottom. Here I show how to get equal sized keys regardless of the height of your board or the width of your dado stack. It is a really cool way to do the joints and the result is as decorative as it is functional. If you like this video and want to get updates on my future projects please subscribe to my Youtube Channel. You can also see 1...
