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...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #6: Putting it together

10-22-2011 12:57 AM by SPHinTampa | 3 comments »

In my last blog, I created the tray bottom. In this blog, I will cut the grooves for the tray bottom, rout finger holds and put the tray together. First step is to cut grooves in the tail section. I use the MCLS 13/64” plywood bit (because 1/4” plywood is smaller than it’s nominal size). As a rule of thumb, I like to cut the groove 2x the groove width (so 1/2” in this case) from the bottom in order to leave enough material for a strong assembly. I mark t...

Workbench #13: Tail Vise Is Complete

10-19-2011 01:31 AM by CartersWhittling | 20 comments »

Hello. I have now finished the tail vise, and today I had acually started work on the base. After I had got the dovetails for the tailvise fit and the pins on the guide rod I cut out the place for the pins to be inserted in the vise assembly. I then started work on getting the notches cut in the guide blocks for the sliding parts. Here you can see the guide rod in place, with the one guide block attached to the end cap with a notch for the guide rod to slide through aswell as a small notch...

Entertainment Center #7: The Finale

10-18-2011 02:54 PM by Marc | 3 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 entertainment center is finished! Yep, you read that correctly. It’s all done. After completing construction last time, all that was left to do was mount the hardware, stain the top and base, and then cover everything with polyurethane…

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #494: "Oh, Dear! Oh Dear! I Shall Be Late!"

10-17-2011 05:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up this morning at 4:48 am. I knew I had a lot to do this morning, but opted to close my eyes for just a bit more anyway. After all, on Sunday I got up around five and didn’t go to bed until almost midnight. Surely I would get everything done. I woke up a second time around 5:50. This time I got up and got moving. I was watching my coffee in the microwave at exactly 6 am and thinking about all that I needed to accomplish before leaving the house this morning. I woul...

Workbench #12: Bench Dogs

10-17-2011 06:16 AM by CartersWhittling | 4 comments »

Hello. This weekend had I finished up my tailvise and made the bench dogs for my bench. I am currently making up a video to show you the tailvise, so when that is done in the next day or two I will post the finished vise. I made one dog for each hole in my bench. Aswell as a special dog that fits in the first hole in the tailvise for when I need to clamp work that would be to short otherwise. I have a thin strip glued with the grain in the opposite direction to give the extension...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #5: The Tray Bottom

10-16-2011 10:11 PM by SPHinTampa | 4 comments »

In my last post, I finished cutting the double dovetails … sorry for the passive aggressive parting line. It was late and I was tired. Now I will put the finishing details on the tray. The only 1/4” plywood that I have in the shop is a piece 13”x72”. My tray is 14 1/4” wide. So this is an opportunity to create a composite panel as a tray bottom. It will look like this: First I cut the center panel on the table saw. Then I cut the outer...

How I did it . . . #1: The Dresser

10-13-2011 09:21 PM by Jacquelyn Smith | 6 comments »

Design to Conception Are you interested in doing inlay, veneer, designing and building a project on your own? Here’s an example of a job I designed and built for a client last year. I already had a blog (perfect45degree.blogspot.com/) before discovering LJ. My guess is that most clients probably aren’t very interested in how I build other projects, only theirs. Given the community here, I thought I’d try writing about how I came to design and build the tünr (pronounced “tune-r”) dresser. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #490: My Calendar Topper

10-13-2011 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

I finished up on the calendar yesterday and I am pretty happy with it. I think it is a fun project and will make a nice series. I needed to take the pictures this morning because everything was drying and I will have it ready to send out tomorrow. The pictures are not exactly what I wanted, but it was still dark out when I took them. I am going to re-take them later on today and get better ones, but for here they will at least give you the idea of what I am doing. Each month will have t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #489: Using Mistakes as Tools for Learning

10-12-2011 12:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I never said I was the brightest bulb in the box. I do however find it sometimes amazing how I can find new and exciting ways to make mistakes. I can be pretty innovative at that. That should count for something, shouldn’t it? Yesterday I did get to cut out all the pieces for my new calendar project. I really think it is going to be cool. This project is going to be one that will be sent to the magazine for publication and I really wanted to do a good job on it. In fact, I am ...
