Tips and Techiques #2: The Somewhat Invisible Hinge Tutorial

03-05-2015 03:49 AM by Jerry | 27 comments »

Okay, I was asked to post a how to for the, I guess I’ll start calling it “vanishing” hinge, since it’s not completely invisible. Anyway I struggled with posting this tutorial, because in this instance things went badly, but I think it’s just as important to publish the mistakes as the successes, because that way whoever reads this can see where the pitfalls are. So in the spirit of full disclosure, here goes. Okay, this tutorial is for 1/2” wood and dow...

08-15-2010 07:06 PM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

The following is an addition to The Apprentice and The Journeyman woodworking video series, Let’s Build. The dedicated dado sled for the table saw is a highly versatile woodworking shop fixture that can expand the woodworking approaches used by many woodworkers. Dado blades are used on the table saw instead of a typical saw blade and the dado blades are often said to be “stacked.” This term implies that the dado blades, chippers, and shims are combined to create a cert...

Shop made shoulder plane #1: Finally finished

11-03-2009 04:27 PM by parkerdude | 12 comments »

I wanted to try my hand at making hand planes, the shop needs several. Struggling with the design concept, I bought a book “Making Traditional Wooden Planes” by John M. Whelan, it was no novel but a good source of wood plane design info. It’s worth reading if you’re researching wooden hand planes. Trying to keep the first plane simple I decided on making a small shoulder plane in the Krenov style. Looking around my shop I found an old 1” chisel. It is harder than heck, so I took it a...

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

04-26-2014 09:22 AM by Boxguy | 22 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 ...

Homemade Band sawmill #1: Building the frame

10-03-2014 07:37 PM by geekwoodworker | 11 comments »

I have been thinking of building a small band sawmill for about a year or more and finally decided to make one. I built a bandsaw from Mathias at woodgears and love it. So I decided to use the same design but modify it to cut horizontally. It will only be used for small logs 6 feet long and no bigger than 28 inches in diameter.It needs to break down easily for transport to my dads and back. I like the lumber smith saw so I think I will make it similar. http://www.lumbersmith.com/ The frame...

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #1: Precursor and laminating the body

06-12-2014 10:46 PM by Wally331 | 4 comments »

Intro- I’ve been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are a lot cheaper (if you have some time on your hands) and you don’t have to deal with old warped wood and a host of other problems you may encounter. I can’t say I am an expert by any means, I’m simply sharing my...
