So many pies; So few fingers (post continued)

366 days ago by JustaLilJoinery | 2 comments »

I was sitting eating dinner eagerly planning out the jigs that I’m going to make for the router, drill press, TS and BS now that I have all my major equipment in place. I was even excited that the knobs and bolts kit of almost 150pc that I was going to pick up was on a really nice sale. I finally started to feel like I could start making the things that I like and not just always mickying around As a miniaturist, I have set ups for lots of different hobbies/mediums including resin ...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #10: Building Dovetailed Drawers

443 days ago by DustyMark | 2 comments »

Dovetailed DrawersThere are many functional means of building drawers that will stand the test of time. I believe a fine case piece, such as the Dr. White’s Chest, warrants drawers assembled with dovetail joints. Watch this video to see my detailed description of building drawers with half-blind dovetail joints using the Leigh dovetail jig. This photo shows the drawers at the dry assembly stage. The joints are tight enough to handle the drawers prior to glue up. The end grain...

Drill press table and fence #1: Knobs!

913 days ago by Jimmy0x52 | 1 comment »

I did some glue up of the drill press table tonight and built part of the fence, more on those later. I did build my favorite thing to build right now – KNOBS! These will be to hold down the fence, stop block, etc on my drill press table I’m building. Really easy to make: Step 1: Find a fairly large hole saw bit (like > 2”)Step 2: Trace it out on a piece of wood and find the center – draw a line all the way across the circle and then draw a line bisecting it i...

Knob made using Oak Screw Chuck

934 days ago by unisaw2 | 1 comment »

Work is quiet right now, no remodel jobs at the moment. I am learning how to turn knobs with an Oak screw chuck. 3” diameter face plate with 1-1/4” thick piece of white oak attached with 3 sheet metal screws. In the center is a 2-1/2” #10 wood screw, washer, and lock washer to make the screw chuck.... . Attaching 1-3/8” maple square blank to screw chuck. Keeping the blank tight without snaping the steel #10 screw is a challenge....Roughing blank to cylinder. ....Turning curves with spin...

Shop Made Jigs, Fixtures and Solutions #3: Hexagons, Octagons and Math...oh my!

983 days ago by DaveTPilot | 1 comment »

Hello Guys and Gals, It has been a while since I’ve been on the site, or in the shop for that matter, due to the busy shedule of my new job. I just recently started working in the shop again and it feels great! As some of you may know, I love building shop made jigs and fixtures as well as finding inexpensive solutions to woodworking challenges. I am in the process of building a dovetail jig from plans in a ShopNotes issue. The jig uses threaded knobs. I didn’t have any in t...

Acrylic #1: First Attempt at Turning Acrylic

1236 days ago by mcjibbin | 4 comments »

After I posted the Zebrawood tote and knob set project on LumberJocks, bigike (of LJs) sent me a message asking me if I’d like to be the first to turn some Acrylic plane knobs. He said he had a source for acrylic stock. I told him sure – not wanting to pass up a chance to expand my lathe skills and at the same time turn some unique plane knobs for Ike and myself. He said he’d mail me some, and I sent him my address. Sure enough, a few weeks later, I received a big box of...

Turning Drawer Pulls and Cabinet Knobs

1258 days ago by Glen Peterson | 3 comments »

Yesterday I turned knobs for a couple of projects. One was a the lathe tool cabinet I posted several weeks ago and the other is a router table I’m trying to complete. The knob are relatively easy to turn. I based them on an article by Phil Lowe that appeared in the Sept/Oct issue of Fine Woodworking simply called Turned Drawer Pulls. Phil is one of my woodworking heros. I’ve taken a couple of classes from him including a weekend of turning with my daughter two years ago, which...

Knitting box #8: Slides, Knobs, Top Separation

1890 days ago by Luke | 2 comments »

I set up the router table to make the slots for the slide rails. I just used a 1/2” straight bit to make the groove and I sized my rails to fit later. So here I used a chisel to square up the fronts of the grooves that I just routed. This is not really necessary it will just make it easier to adjust the drawers forward or backward if they don’t line up just right, Which they didn’t in the end. I had to remove just a bit more towards the front on one side so that they ...
