Workbench #9: Making Wooden Screws

10-08-2011 02:33 AM by CartersWhittling | 57 comments »

Hello. This is a video showing the process I go through to make wooden screws. I briefly try to explain how it is set up and show the jig making the screw. I will soon have a video on making wooden nuts aswell. I will eventually make a video showing how to make the tap and screw making jig and explain how to create the size of screw you want. I’m sure there are many other ways to make nuts and screws but this is how I do it and it works fairly well, the main downside being that I can ge...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #2: Cutting the side joints

10-07-2011 04:07 PM by SPHinTampa | 3 comments »

First step of a double dovetail is to cut a through dovetail on each side piece and then attach a trim piece. This blog entry will cover that process. So starting with the end pieces and a 6” piece of trim stock (same width as the side piece, thickness doesn’t matter). Install the two template strips into the positioning system (1 dovetail strip and 1 double dovetail strip). The dovetail strip consists of an A side which lets you cut pins at 7/8” intervals and ...

First major blow up!

10-07-2011 04:53 AM by GodofBiscuits | 7 comments »

After some success with pens and a few bottle stoppers, I decided a bowl was overdue. I picked up a couple 2×6 rounds last week of curly maple and decided to see what kind of bowl I could fashion from one. I located center and attached the faceplate with some screws. My intention was to cut the bottom of the bowl for the Nova Chuck and shape it as much I could before turning it around and hollowing out the inside. I made the recess and shape the outside curve then sanded it to 600 grit. ...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #1: Prep Work - creating the laminated stock

10-05-2011 11:32 PM by SPHinTampa | 4 comments »

I have gotten a few questions (actually 3) from folk about to how create the Incra Double Dovetails Joints such as the one in this project: I will not be making a box in this blog. But a really good friend saw this box and asked if I could make a 14” x 19” serving tray in the same style. Maureen has been a huge help to my wife and I so I was happy to get a chance to make something for her. Obviously, first place to start is to get an Incra Jig System. I have the old 1...

Workbench #7: Top Almost Done

10-04-2011 07:09 PM by CartersWhittling | 3 comments »

Hello. I am now almost done the bench top. The tailvise still needs to be made and I need to glue the shoulder vise together, but the majority of work is done. Since my last post I finished the splines for the shoulder vise and tapped the nut for the vise, and cut the detail out. This is a 2 1/2” diamter nut with 2 tpi. I am making a video of the process of tapping the nut. I also finished the splines for the end caps and drilling the holes for the bolts. The bolts and splines ...

Refinish my Shaker Table Top

10-03-2011 11:40 PM by Karson | 20 comments »

My Shaker Hall Table that I had placed against the wall in the kitchen became a final resting spot for some items. The ones that caused the problem was a Sheave of Wheat which had been died dark brown., a fish bowl, a wicker basket that had honey and syrup placed in it. The table top looked like this. The gray stains were the syrup and it had gone below th surface because water wouldn’t clean it up. I was contemplating running it through the plainer again, but I opted ...

Entertainment Center #6: The Doors

10-03-2011 05:25 AM by Marc | 0 comments »

I’ve got my own site where I like to write about my projects so rather than duplicate them here I’ll just provide a little teaser. If you’d like to read the full post just click here. The final things that needed to be constructed for the entertainment center were the doors. These are a simple frame but the interior panel is actually a lattice ‘weave’. I wanted these to come out right since they are a major visual feature of the entertainment center so I took my sweet time making them. (Th...

Time for new storage.

10-01-2011 05:04 PM by tom427cid | 18 comments »

Lately I have added to my accumulation of wood planes and unfortunatly run out of storage for them. I wasn’t to bad until my friend-who is cleaning out his shop and moving to smaller quarters-presented me with the wood planes that he had. So now the challenge is to come up with some sort of cabinet to keep everything in one place. All the way from a 28” jointer to a 6” trimmming plane,all the hollows and rounds,T&G sets,fillisters,sash planes, and leave room ...

Workbench #6: Dovetailing Endcaps

10-01-2011 02:40 AM by CartersWhittling | 3 comments »

Hello. Today I’ve been working on endcaps for the shoulder vise. I started by routing the grooves in the spacer block and in the doghole strip for the spacer block. I then squared up the end of each end cap for the shoulder vise and laid out and cut the tail on the long end cap with the bandsaw. I then transfered the tail and cut the pins with a jig on the bandsaw. And after a little fitting… I then put the rod through the top and clamped the spacer bl...
