Vermont Lap Desk, part two

04-15-2013 10:15 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, hand is healed up, for now. Got out a handsaw and trimmed things to length. Someone asked about making dovetails for the corners? Had to rearrange the bench a bit, first. That yellow Miter Box was moved around to the front of the corner of the bench. Cleaned off an area in front of it, as well. Laid out for a few cuts Had to add some bits of scrap wood to the miter box, to get rid of any flex. C-clamp to hold things in place. Tried a coping saw at first. Hurt ...

Base cabinet for pipe smoking cabinet #1: Putting plans together

04-09-2013 06:14 PM by BobInMidland | 2 comments »

My first project that I have posted is a 24×6x24 pipe smoking cabinet that holds (36) pipes. As shown below: Now its time to start on the base unit. I need storage for my pipe tobacco which is stored in a number of different sized and shaped containers. Mason jars of different sizes, round or square metal tins, gasket-lid jars, etc… That can be accomplished rather easily, I would think, with standard fixed or adjustable shelving. I also need storage for pipe cleaners, li...

Lamps for the living room #2: Coming together

04-08-2013 01:42 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

It has been a bit of a bother to find time for woodworking. I found some today and managed to put in a few hours. Today was about fitting the sides of the lamps to the side edges. Although I got all the I made progress on both lamps but I only got one assembled up to this point. I am going very slow on this so I can enjoy what I’m making. For starters, I added one coat of tung oil before starting the glue up. The glue joints don’t have any tung oil on them so thery are good...

Lamps for the living room #1: Decent Start

03-22-2013 01:27 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 5 comments »

I have been building some lamps for the Living room. I discovered an issue. My small miter saw used to be as accurate as anything else I could manage. I didn’t realize that the fence had warped until I started assembling. My 45 angles wer more like 45.75. It threw a wrench in things and gave me a little firewood but I recovered most of the cuts. I’m ready to move on. I was able to straigten the fence on the small saw but now I’m marking my cuts and disregardng the presets...

Constructing My First Workbench

03-18-2013 12:59 AM by MaroonGoon | 12 comments »

Alright guys,I have been planning this simple workbench for a while. This is actually my first large scale project for me and I was happy for it to be a workbench because to me it didn’t have to be a masterpiece. If I screwed up somewhere down the line, hopefully it wouldn’t be too noticeable so it was a good way for me to practice making mortise and tenon joints and becoming familiar with my equipment and develop my craftsmanship. Here is a list of the tools that I used to con...

Over sized Angle/Bevel Gauge

03-16-2013 06:00 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 10 comments »

Well this week was a busy week and I didn’t get to make a video project for this past Wednesday. So I thought I would Share this quick project video with you today. For a recent project I needed to make a larger version of an angle gauge to allow me to get the exact angle of an inside corner of a corner shower. After borrowing one from a fellow woodworker, I decided I needed one for the shop. Here is a look at making the simple but very useful over sized angle finder. These are commonly...

Miter Saw / Multi Use Station #1: Planning

03-13-2013 06:03 PM by izod | 3 comments »

In High School we had a nice long bench in the back with a radial arm saw and I remember how convenient it was to have it when making long board cross cuts and having a block stop on the fence for multiple perfect cuts. Ever since then I’ve wanted to have something like this in my shop. Currently My saw has been sitting on my great grand father’s custom made steel bench from his jointer and shaper. Then if I need to cut a long board i have to set up a roller support bar which i...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #10: Adding Splines To A Box

03-11-2013 07:07 PM by Boxguy | 13 comments »

Adding Splines To a Box Assumptions: I assume you have looked at the tutorial on making the splines themselves. The tutorial on cutting the splines slots with the jig there gives you a box that looks like this on the corner. The next step is to glue the splines into the slots. I should have pictured it, but I apply Tightbond’s Carpenter’s and Trim Glue to both the spline and the slot to assure there will be a good bond. This thicker glue is easier to work with, and...
