"REVERIE HARP!" a new style of Harp from a kit #1: Reverie Harp Kit, Off to a pretty good start!

06-18-2009 08:49 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 27 comments »

I showed Barb this kit the other day, & immediately she said, ”I want one.” When the Sweetie wants something, I usually comply to her wishes. Besides, I can try making something I’ve never done before. This is the kit I ordered, it's called a Reverie Harp.. One thing about this Harp is, anyone can play it because of the way it’s tuned. It has a real soothing sound.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is a picture of the parts ...

Getting my tools ready #22: ROUGH CUT STRAIGHTEDGE CUTTING JIG WITH KNOBS II (THE NEW AND IMPROVED VERSION!)

07-06-2015 05:40 PM by DocSavage45 | 27 comments »

ROUGH CUT STRAIGHTEDGE CUTTING JIG WITH KNOBS II (THE NEW AND IMPROVED VERSION!) This is the bottom of the straightedge cutting jig. It is made from the material available on the shop, half-inch plywood. You can see the hardwood rail for tracking the jig. It is smaller than the last one because that’s all I had. LOL! This board is wider than the last to accommodate wider slabs of wood. The original version was not able to handle more than 8 inches in width. The wider hol...

"Art Box" Tutorial #4: Corner Splines

06-23-2009 08:18 PM by Andy | 26 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 We now have our box assembled and glued up. Depending on the temperature, let it dry for a couple of hours, or overnight to be safe.Take the tape off and clean up any dried glue. This is a good time to smooth up the bottom to get rid of any rocking.You can double stick sandpaper onto a very flat and firm surface and slide the bottom across that. The problem with this approach is that sheet sandpaper is way too small. You can stick down several sheets and if you go very s...

Router Table Cabinet

09-24-2009 11:06 AM by 559dustdesigns | 26 comments »

This is a router table I’m working on for my shop. I was able to incorporate most the features I needed and plan to use it often. It isn’t finished but most the major parts are in place. I purchased the Incra twin linear, router table top, woodpeckers router lift and the porter cable 7518 motor from Woodpeckers Inc back in 2002 or 2003. Finally, she’s in working order. Since the last post I was able to complete the rear ...

jointer revisited #1: old tool , old guy , new idea ! and safe .

07-03-2009 11:49 PM by patron | 26 comments »

for years ( 45 ) i have been using the jointer , and from day 1 , my shop master ( Lincoln Morinaga ) said that this tool was the most dangerous in the shop . in my work , i often have to joint 12’ boards or longer .with or without a helper , this is a tedious and risky task , as you have to force the board down with lots of pressure,to counteract the forces of gravity and increasing outboard sagging .my thoughts , have allways led me to using gravity in my favor , and letting my ̶...

"Art Box" Tutorial #3: Making the box

06-22-2009 09:19 PM by Andy | 25 comments »

Part 3updated 1/15/12 Regarding size:Size and proportions are important…to a point. We will be building a box that will start out at 11 1/8 W x 7 D x 4 1/2 H. (After shaping it will finish out at about 10 3/4’’ x 6 3/4’’ x 3 1/8 h depending on how much shaping is done.) I like the proportions of this box, they just look good to my eye. They are loosely based on the Golden Ratio which is a ratio of 1.618. There is much more to it than that, but simply put, here is how it works in rela...

04-30-2015 01:23 AM by DocSavage45 | 25 comments »

MY STRAIGHTEDGE ROUGH CUTTING JIG.First picture (jig with spalted Maple) The first picture you see is why I built the jig. If you have been following my journey and saw the other jig that I built for my band saw you know that this is the next step. I am truly in awe of what Mother Nature has given me. Picture 2 ( side view of completed straightedge jig with six-inch hold downs) The next picture is my rough drawing of what a poor man’s jig looks like. I decided to u...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #12: Making Tea Box Dividers Of Venetian Blinds

04-26-2014 09:22 AM by Boxguy | 25 comments »

How do you install a grid work inside a tea box so it looks like this? Here is what the lift-out grill work looks like inside the tea box. This is what the lift-out grill work looks like outside of the box. The small compartment to the left makes a chain pocket so the stop chain doesn’t get tangled with the teabags... Why use Venetian blinds for lift-out dividers? By the time you plane, sand, and finish slats to make dividers inside boxes you have a lot of time and ...
