12-17-2011 10:06 AM by Nighthawk | 1 comment »

Take two speaker boxes that are worse for wear, and kind of water logged. Then say, “heck they aren’t exactly cheap speakers either. ummmmmmm” Mission speakers. Remove guts of both speakers. Put in plasted container and seal. Turn round and now say… “ummm now what?... followed by a gulp, ”...and he wants two… hmmmm “ Okay we first made a router jig so we can do some nice daedo to fit the speakers into and then finish the cross cut tab...

Having the right tools

12-13-2011 08:05 PM by Nighthawk | 11 comments »

Those few of you that follow my mere attempts to be a wood worker will know I have fun doing it no matter how the project turns out. Whether it works out great or an failed attempt. Or whether it is a biggish project like the coffin or a small one like the cribbage board. Having the right tools for the job can make things so much easier, yes I will agree with that statement. However as we all know you don’t always have the right tool or all the tools you require or want to have in yo...

Unorthodox Bandsaw Box #1: Box making steps

12-11-2011 09:42 PM by Jim Jakosh | 28 comments »

My wife asked me when I was going to make her a box to keep our business cards in when we travel. I had made a few boxes but never one upon request- especially from her. So I wanted this to be special. I went about making a bandsaw box in an unconventional way and I was having a problem with the hinge design. One night I had a dream of how to do it and wrote it down right away in the morning. Here are the steps I used to make the box using mainly the bandsaw and the scroll saw for one tough p...

Squaring my miter saw

12-11-2011 06:19 AM by thiswoodshop | 2 comments »

I had a Ryobi 14 Amp 10 in. Compound Mitre Saw. It was working fine but could only cut a max of 5 inches wide boards. I was in the market for a new on but all of the sliding miter saw was so costly. I even considered a Harbor Freight one, but even at that it was a $100 and more for one. I decided to check out and found a Kobalt one there for s feel. Well, after I got home I found out why it was so cheap – it was not square. I tried a couple of time to square it up but it...

Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #4: Making the handle and finishing the tote

12-06-2011 02:30 AM by ~Julie~ | 9 comments »

Now that we have the size of the handle piece, the actual handle has to be cut out of it.For now I keep the piece as a rectangle, and will do the angled sides after the handle is cut out. I’m using my router and a template guide to remove the area for the handle. First I need to make a template out of hardboard that is 11/32” larger than the actual size of the oval hole that I want. I determined a hole 3 1/2” long and 1 1/8” wide for the handle would be good for t...

Built in E-center, Yala #3: It is finished!

12-03-2011 03:13 PM by topcat | 3 comments »

I haven’t done one of these in a while. The build was a bit excruciating. Took 6 days, about 10-12 hrs. per day. Started on the Thurs. before Thanksgiving. That was an easy day. I just ran around getting all of the materials together and did some initial layout work and rough cut the plywood sides. These were full height and were too awkward to move around, so I used a straight edge and my new PC 8902 router to get the edges of the plywood ready for the face frames. Once the first side ...

Instructions For Making A Wine Bottle Balancer.

11-04-2011 07:49 AM by Trev_Batstone | 1 comment »

Here are the instructions for making my style of the wine bottle balancer: 1. Cut pieces to size on the table saw: 3”x12” (3/4” stock). 2. Drill angle hole at 45 degrees, 3” from one end on the drill press with a 1 3/8” forstner bit. 3. Cut rounded top on band saw, jig saw, or scroll saw. 4. Round over edges on both sides of the board with a round-over bit on router table (this is optional, but it just makes for a more decorative look and...
