Making a Shadow Box With Splined Miters

01-29-2018 02:47 AM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I made this shadow box to showcase my son’s recent school accomplishments. I made the frame out of some oak I had in the shop. I added splines to the miters to give it some strength. This is a great afternoon project that doesn’t take a lot of material and utilizes a simple wax finish.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Kjk7jrIvfo&t=75s

Stand Up Jewelry Box #6: Ring Tray and Smaller boxes

01-20-2018 02:26 AM by cowboyup3371 | 2 comments »

I have repeatedly said one of the best things of this project is that my eldest daughter and I are spending time together working on it. Unfortunately the extreme cold weather we are having has done a number on her health causing pain in her chest and overall discomfort. As such, she is unable to work in our shop for very long which has created a major damper on that time. So today, I took her out to Wright Patterson Air Force Base’s wood shop so we could build her portion of the pro...

My Mobile Assembly/Outfeed Table and First Video

01-15-2018 04:11 AM by YesHaveSome | 2 comments »

I had always wanted to get into woodworking and video. For woodworking, space/time/money was always the big roadblocks for me. For video, I didnt really know have anything I wanted to shoot. When I got into woodworking in the beginning of 2017 I figured the two paired nicely. I’ve been in the website/digital industry for the past 10 years and also have a background as a CAD jockey. Woodworking, plans, video and website all seem to go together quite nicely so I figured I’d start a ...

A Stepback Cupboard build #7: Door is done....

01-11-2018 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, I did get a panel glued up this week.. And let it sit a day…..today, it came out of the clamps. Marked for final width, and a rip cut made on the bandsaw. Then face planed to remove some high spots.. Along with jointing the sawn edge. Width was now set, length was about as close as I could get it. Marked a line along one end, to do a bevel across the grain….. Panel raising. This panel is a bit on the thick side. (more on that in a bit) Paul Selle...

A Stepback Cupboard build #6: Drawer fitted, door started

01-09-2018 01:33 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, got the drawer fine tuned, once it came out of the clamps.. Dovetails now look a bit better…..Installed two strips of scrap onto the runners in the case, where the drawer will slide. Added a pair of shiny knobs…. So I can pull the drawer back out. Knob details? Nothing real fancy.. Drawer was sticking a bit…easy fix. I let the case sit over night, to let the glue holding the guides strip in place cure. Pulled the drawer out, and ran a #4 plane along t...

A Stepback Cupboard build #5: A drawer building day

01-07-2018 12:01 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I got the clamps off, and things laid out… Drawer front fits…I removed the rest of the clamps, and moved the case so I could have a bit more elbow room… Hauled the Pine 1×6 to the shop. Set up to cut a pair of drawer sides. A Disston D-7, 10ppi crosscut. That green can was also needed, today One end was a tad off, used the mitre box to trim it down to match the first one. You would think, that both parts coming from the same board, would be the s...

A Stepback Cupboard build #3: A face frame gets built

01-04-2018 10:53 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok. I need to build a “face frame” to cover the front edges of the case..ripped down another plank of Ash Bandsaw to rip a couple stiles, about 1-1/2” wide. Jointer plane to remove saw marks, and make the two match each other. Needed three rails.. Mitersaw to cut those to length….ganged all three up.. Shorter boards = shorter planes. Then I needed tenons on both ends of these three.. Didn’t like these wide tenons, so they were trimmed down a...

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leaver up right.

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...
