Incra Double Dovetail Project #4: Cutting the Pins

10-11-2011 09:38 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

In the last blog, I completed the tails for the project (after a few mistakes). The next steps are a lot faster and less error prone. Line up to the A cuts and then first step in cutting the tails is to set the stop block so it just barely misses the bit. Making sure to keep you fence mark side aligned against fence (easy to forget for this step), cut one full set of pins, advancing to each A cut. Then check the fit. As you can see, I am shallow by 1/16”. So I ne...

Built In Closets #11: Mirror, mirror on the wall

01-03-2011 05:55 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

Not sure that these are the fairest of them all but they did come out ok. Used left over face frame material to make the mirror frames. Started out by routing a two tiered rabbet – the inner rabbit for the 1/8” mirror (next time I will leave the mirror slightly proud so backer applies some pressure) and the outer rabbet for the 1/8” masonite backer board. Most of you probably know this, but this project really drove home the importance of feather boards in both direct...

Knitting box #7: Box divider and bottom

06-03-2009 05:46 AM by Luke | 2 comments »

So here I have the drawer pieces all laid out and routed the groove in the bottom of them for the slide in solid panel 1/8” maple that I am going to use. I was trying to decide on solid or ply and thought that it would look better with the solid plus I don’t have any maple ply and I have plenty of the maple solid. I had to make a trip to get the bit as my standard bit set didn’t have one that small (1/8”). I set up a couple of stops on my router table and cut the groov...

Preventing Blotching Using A Wash Coat #1: Finishing with Wash Coats

01-04-2015 03:10 AM by pjones46 | 2 comments »

Wash Coat #1: Finishing with Wash Coats I am starting to put together an article covering finishing and this will be part of the coverage but not just limited to preventing blotching as a wash coat will aid in a more consistent staining color. This will be updated as my thoughts are organized. This is only a small portion: A wash coat is a coat of thinned finish that’s applied to bare wood to partially seal the surface before a stain is applied. It reduces the amount of stain from so...

Equipping the office #1: Laminated curved edges: A temporary shelf

04-27-2009 04:38 PM by Dan Lyke | 2 comments »

It’s going to be a year or more before I can start working on the real built-ins for the office. More if Craigslist doesn’t somehow manage to cough up a whole bunch of inexpensive cherry and we actually have to buy the lumber for this retail. In the mean-time, I needed some storage for the office, and I’ve been wanting to do more stuff with sweeping curves, so I decided to take some scrap plywood and a bunch of thin maple that was left over from cutting out the door frames f...

Shoulder plane

04-08-2016 02:01 AM by madts | 2 comments »

This post is dedicated to my good Danish pal Mads. I was in Denmark this winter as my dad was ailing and did die.He was 92 and he wanted to go.While i was there I got to visit with Mads, which is always great. At that visit he gave me this. This was a challenge to me as I have always wanted to make a shoulder plane.I had some repurposed maple doors that I used. I had to glue several pieces together to make the body. After the glue up I did the geometry and made some cuts and s...

New Mallet Project

01-22-2012 03:32 AM by LelandStone | 2 comments »

Okay, so…I’ve bought a gouge on eBay, and I’m making some others, and it occurred to me: I don’t have a decent mallet. In fact, I’ve NEVER had one, and making one has been on my “tuit” list for far too long. Soooo…downstairs in the shop today I made some headway. The blank I’d glued up from 6/4 hard maple stock, then cut and mounted in my lathe (second favourite tool in my shop, thank you): That done, I then bored the mallet hea...
