Hints and Tips #27: One key to file cleaning

02-16-2017 04:14 PM by Dave Rutan | 8 comments »

I’ve seen a few things telling of how to clean out the teeth of a file. One old-timey way, the source of which I cannot find was to hammer the end of a large nail flat and run that over the file groove-wise. The teeth of the file will cut the nail into a sort of rake which will force out any aluminum or other soft metal bits, even sawdust! This video says pretty much the same thing: View on YouTube So I don’t yet own a file card brush, but I had a few old keys to a pad...

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #2: Long Arched Rails, and Tabletop

08-24-2012 02:20 AM by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

After pattern routing the long arched rails, it was time to turn my attention to the top. I started with 6/4 stock, all from the same log. Biscuits were placed every 6” to help with alignment and add strength. I once did an experiment with biscuits – joined two boards with biscuits (no glue) and soaked them in water for a while. I took it around to each family member to see if they could pull the boards apart—- and none could. I took the top over to Creative Woodwo...

A Keychain is Born ~ 8/30/10 ~ With Video

08-30-2010 10:29 AM by DustyNewt | 9 comments »

I must apologize for my lack of interaction here on LumberJocks. I am on the night shift at the paper mill and my neighbors don’t dig the 2:30 am woodworking bit, so I have been limited to my keychain work and ya’ll have seen that. It is my night off and I remembered a couple requests a while back to do a blog on my keychain process. So, here ‘tis! I hope the video comes out right. I’ve been experimenting with my CoolPix. Short videos? I can do that! So I decided to...

Dovetail Box #14: "T Keys"

04-28-2008 05:02 PM by Eric | 5 comments »

When I asked for feedback on how to glue up the frame pieces for the lid to the box I’m working on, Luis had suggested that I not glue the miters, but rather chop little mortises in the miters and glue in some floating tenons. The only problem is that with the size of my miters, they would have to be very tiny mortises, and I just didn’t have it in me to do it. So here’s what I came up with: “T Keys”. I decided to run grooves down the length of the mortise, creat...

Finished my Table Saw Jigs

11-21-2007 02:57 AM by Sgt_Lobo | 8 comments »

Alright, I’m ready to do some real woodwork now. I finally finished my last two table saw jigs. This time I made a miter sled and a key slot jig (spline jig?). I will make more jigs/sleds as I need them, but I think that the three I’ve made recently should be a good start with my new TS. So, heres a couple of pictures, and as always comments and suggestions are welcome (I came here to learn).

ok – I’ve built my router table jig and have the materials milled and ready to go. Now I see the problem with my jig. I can’t see what I’m doing from behind. These pictures will tell the story. (And no I’m not stick thin but you can’t take a picture of yourself. My eyes really are better looking than this—- but this is eye level This shows the line of sight. The jig is up next to the router bit – as you can see – I CAN’T see wh...
