Pecky cypress goodness #1: Shop cabinet build

37 days ago by TheFridge | 2 comments »

I needed some shop storage and I wanted to use some pecky cypress I was given. So I figured drawer fronts of pecky cypress would be an awesome start. So I started by getting some free plywood after some old cabinets were demo’d on a job I was on. I would’ve preferred European style cabinets but didn’t think about it until after I milled and assembled the face frame. Here is the carcass from reclaimed wood. Cabinet set in place with face frame attached. Yes, I used a kre...

Traditional Chinese Jack plane

45 days ago by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Start with a chunk of oak. This is Red Oak, I think. and layout a few lines. A 45 degree one for the iron to bad on, and another for the wedge to press against. Layout some other lines. Where the mouth is, and where the “eyes” go. The Eyes are the two points that hold the wedge in place. Ahead of them is the escape,emt area where shavings are supposed to exit. Like this. Then the chopping begins with the idea of making a hole all the way through. Then ...

Identifying wood from the bark #1: What is this species of wood? Need some input.

66 days ago by DocSavage45 | 19 comments »

I have access to free logs at the local compost site. Bought a chain saw and waiting on a chainsaw mill that I ordered. Not exactly free but close enough. It just opened for Spring clean up. I am planning on harvesting what I can when it is available. I do know Maple ( older trees) Walnut ( I have two walnut trees dumping their stuff on my property which requires clean up), and an old Elm, which are on my property. Dumped my walnut tree waste at the site and picked up this short l...

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

75 days ago by Boxguy | 21 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 ...

Jewelry Case Build #1: Rough Cutting Parts

78 days ago by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

I decided to build, what I think is, a nice jewelry case for my Niece’s birthday this summer. The case is Walnut with Bird’s Eye Maple for drawers and accents. There are some secondary 1/8” panels that will be either Baltic Birch or hardboard. Plans are from an older issue of Wood magazine. Here’s what it should look like when complete: Yesterday I cut everything but the hardboard to rough size. Then I dadoed out 10 tiny rails and stiles for half lap ...

Wonderful Things #2: Sort of a Chest with Slideout Draw Trays

78 days ago by brucethecontrarian | 1 comment »

She Who Must be Obeyed spake thus; Seek ye out the land of Ebay and secure these 40 vintage wooden trays that have been made known to me and bring them hence. Thereafter shall ye build a cabinet such that it will hold all my supplies of craft that I might practice on them. And ye shall make it so it fits in a specific place and is neither too large nor too small. As She had spoken, so was She obeyed. The draws came from an old police station in the town of Preston (Watling Street...

Chess board with outlined squares

79 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Howdy, Joe asked me to create a little Blog about how I created my chess board. I’m happy to do so. I’ll just remind everyone that when you are seated at the board, the corner square to your right is white. I’ll edit this post this week to add illustrations. Truth being told, the cutting board and box makers are far better at this than I. This design is just a basic cutting board without using end grain. I didn’t allow for expansion so the whole thing may just explode on me one day. Us...
