TV Stand #2: Making the front face frame... Next Step..... Ideas Welcomed

08-09-2011 01:05 AM by Angela | 3 comments »

If anyone has a suggestion or idea, please feel free to add a comment. As I said I’m sort of making it up as I go along. If took me a while to decide on how to secure the face frame. As I mentioned before I received this idea from re-assembling my parents TV stand. Once thing I was surprise to notice when I disassembled theirs, was how little glue was used. I believe their TV cabinet was from Ethan Allen. I contemplated using a tenon joint, and then I settled on dowels. After thin...

Table Saw Splined Miter Jig

12-04-2012 11:19 PM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

Watch how to use a spline miter jig on the table saw. Two simple and easy to make table saw spline miter jigs are demonstrated in this woodworking video presentation. Watch how the woodworker cuts accurate spline slots into the miter joints of picture frames. The two splined miter jigs are of differing sizes because the picture frames very in size. Notice how easy it is to cut the slots for the splines. Simply secure the picture frames to the jigs by using spring clamps. Adjust the heig...

Beads Box #6: Incra Style Box Joint Jig/Sled for the Table Saw (998SE)

12-31-2010 02:15 AM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

While waiting for glue to dry I tackled the large drawer that will be faced with the mahogany/maple-stripe front. After the last project where I used dovetails for all the small drawer I wisened up (is that a word?!?) and went with box joint. My box joint jig is based on my Incra 998SE Miter gauge . The 1000SE comes with the flip stop which is very useful with 2 built in stops, and a micro adjustment which I use to sneak up to a perfect box joint fit. For added stability I also use the...

Blacker House Chair #1: Shaping the back leg.

02-25-2012 04:36 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 1 comment »

Where possible we used one leg to mark out the other. He then cut to that line on the band saw and smoothed it back to the line with a variety of hand tools. To get the twist in the leg that it needed to meet the crest rail he cut to a line on the top and was careful to hold it at an angle so as not to cut into it at the bottom. This established the two edges with a bump in the middle. He them covered that area with yellow chalk and tried to plane, scrap, spok...

Frame Saw Build #3: Template me this, Curve me that.

10-24-2011 08:25 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Using my previously made SketchUp model I made a full sizes printed template using the following steps: 1. Setting up a Parallel view: The default view in SketchUp is “Perspective” which allows us to view things in 3D which looks ‘real’ due to the perspective view but for printing we want to be able to see the drawings in 2-D as if they were printed on a flat paper (which is what we about to do). In order to do this you need to go to the menus under “Camera...

Strongest mitre for picture frame - How I made it

02-16-2012 02:42 PM by Paul Sellers | 4 comments »

Moulding the stock Following up from the video film on the strength of these mitres. These are the steps I took to make this picture-frame moulded and inlaid stock and the frame itself. It’s dead straight forward using a pair of wooden T&G planes, a moulding plane, a tenon saw and a plane. You can make a simple shooting board with stop screwed to a board at 45-degrees or a proper one with removable stops. I took about 45 minutes to make it. Mould the stock with the moulding plane. I...

Katanakake (Japanese sword stand) #2: More bandsaw shaping, some drilling, and lots of sanding

08-04-2012 10:56 PM by BTimmons | 0 comments »

In case you missed it, here is Part 1 in this series. First thing I did was employ my new-to-me drill press to establish an inner curve for the vaulted feet. Placing the center brad of a Forstner bit ensures that an even radius is cut into both sides, which were held together with blue tape. Not an ideal clamping solution, but it’s adequate for this. Always use a backer board to avoid blowout! I had a bit of tearout around the mortise here, but the rack will obscure the flaw af...

Make a First Aid Cabinet For the Workshop

05-03-2013 06:39 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 5 comments »

When a viewer sent me a comment asking if I could make a First Aid Cabinet for the workshop, I thought to myself. “Yea what a perfect project to do”, because I am setting up the new shop, and it was the one thing missing. The First aid Cabinet was made almost entirely out of Pallet Wood. Oh yea! my first Pallet Project! http://www.asimpledesignofocala.com – Websitehttp://www.ufoww.com – The United Federation of Woodworkers Member Sitehttp://www.twitter...

Machinist Toolbox #5: Carcass Joinery

12-17-2010 03:49 AM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

Yesterday I was able to cut the tails on the carcass side parts. I used the bandsaw to cut the tails because the blade cuts straight and is narrow, although I did get some rough cut surface this time because I have a kink in the blade. I’m thinking in the future to use the Table saw with the blade tilted at ~10 degrees and the part passed vertically much like cutting box joints, but that will have to wait for future projects as for the time being -these tails are cut already. Once th...
