shop jigs/furniture/fixtures #2: sharpening markers

08-14-2013 04:00 AM by Tugboater78 | 1 comment »

Was work in in shop today when I get a call from my girlfriend. Her 3yr old boy was in daycare with a fever and an apparent massive headache. She couldn’t find anyone else to get him and asked if I could. So shop time got cut out, no real biggie, I brought the shop to the coffee table while we watched Wall-E. Been meaning to make some of these for consistent bevels on my planes and Chisels , but kept putting it off. I use a cheap sharpening guide just like I seen the Schwarz. For chi...

Faery Mirrors Build #4: Lap Joints, Router Days and Dry Fit

02-11-2013 05:28 PM by Lumberpunk | 1 comment »

Ok a couple of busy days, probably gonna take a day off today to be with the family. Here is one side of the top brace scribed for routing the curved side of the lap joint. and here it is after routing, the edge was done in four very careful passes with a 1/8th bit and then the rest was hogged out with a 3/4 straight bit after this pic. After doing six of these my shoulders were pretty tight. Then I took to it with chisel and file and very slowly snuck up on a nice tight fit....

Incra Router Table #1: Creating base cabinet

06-22-2013 12:21 AM by SPHinTampa | 1 comment »

My original router table was one of my first major projects. I was very pleased with the result and it worked well for years. I recently decided to rebuild my router table, primarily because I screwed up my first router table by installing a cheap phenolic plate that sagged. I had just been using a router screwed directly to the base of the table top and then using a piece of masonite with various sized holes to as a zero clearance insert. Then I bought a panel raising bit and figured i...

Kitchen Cabinets #2: They call it labor day for a reason....

09-06-2010 10:14 PM by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

I finished the kitchen cabinets on schedule and my brother and sister-in-law came up this weekend and attacked the project with gusto… First the sheet rock came down, and then most of the wall studs came out. Then the carpet and the kitchen floor had to be cut back to the subfloor level so cabinets could sit down where they needed to be. Once the final dimensions were figured out, the end post to support the overhead beam went in place (the beam was pocket screwed i...

A House Warming Gift #2: 2 + 2

03-31-2009 02:16 AM by littlecope | 1 comment »

Two hours on Friday, and two hours I managed to squeeze in Sunday afternoon, but the work progresses! Began Sunday by transferring the pattern I fabricated onto the wood I guess most attach the patterns to the wood, to be honest, I’ve never done it that way. When I started doing these, ready access to a simple copying machine was difficult to come by. The patterns were also considered precious to me and I didn’t want to cut them up. Anyway, I’ve continued doing them right on...

Making a Rolling Pin

12-27-2013 04:59 PM by nobuckle | 1 comment »

This a short (short for me anyway) video that shows how I made a rolling pin. It was good to fire up the lathe again. Especially to make something that will last for generations. I hope it inspires you to make one of your own. Thanks for watching.
