Wine Cork Display Tutorials #2: Cutting and Measuring

11-18-2010 07:12 AM by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

In this tutorial I’ll be making three redwood wine box displays. Two will be 12” x 12” x 3”, the other will be 10” x 10” x 2 1/4”. These are the two most common sizes I make, the 12” square box will hold ~125 wine corks, where as the 10” version will hold ~80. It doesn’t look like that many will fit in there, but I promise you they will.Before we begin, I want to mention that these tutorials will be available on my photography sit...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #1: Intro

11-18-2010 06:08 AM by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

To my amazement there has been a lot of inquiries into how I make my wine cork displays. These questions inspired me to create a series of blog/tutorials to help explain my process. They will probably go into far more detail than most of you “master woodworkers” care to see, but I’m hoping it will help those new to woodworking. I remember how valuable some of the more detailed tutorials where to me when I first started, and still are for that matter. The design is one ...

Workshop Upgrades #1: Organizing the shop

10-25-2010 03:47 AM by jcwalleye | 8 comments »

Shop Upgrades It’s been a month and a half since moving into the new shop and I’ve had a little time to complete a few upgrades. First is a mitre saw station. There’s 6’ on the left and unlimited room on the right if you want to go out the door. It’s made from three cabinets with four drawers in each cabinet all made with ¾” shop grade maple plywood. It’s trimmed with hard maple and the drawer fronts are poplar. Some of the plywood in the carcass had nice birdseye so it’s finished wit...

UNPOSTED PROJECTS -- NOW POSTED #2: HUTCH & SHELVE COMBINE

10-11-2010 06:49 AM by BertFlores58 | 5 comments »

In saving space, making one piece out of two functions will be a nice way of making tailored furnitures. There are lots of variation, a two piece sets and some are built separately and screwed together. This project started after I built the Agnes’ shelve blogged on first part. The design came in due to the need of storing hutch and a display shelve. There are some challenges such as. 1. The design requirementsI have a very limited space… 40 inches width x 6 1/2 ft high. T...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #8: Finally it is FINISHED!

09-26-2010 10:50 PM by RonPeters | 8 comments »

Ok, I’ve been working on this for about 18 months. A little here and a little there… a piece at a time. It’s finally finished and now I can move on to making instruments. I never built a bench, or anything else – unless you consider that bowl I turned in wood shop 45 years ago? – so there was some learning curve involved. I never: made box joints or drawers, glued up a top, made and installed mortise & tenon’s, installed a vice – let alone two ...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #31: From one foot to four feet...

09-25-2010 01:57 AM by degoose | 7 comments »

Have you ever wished that a 12 inch sliding saw could crosscut more than just the 300 mm at 90 Degrees [one foot]... how would it be if it could be adapted to crosscut up to 1300 mm [over four feet]... WOW Well that is just what the boys at Torque Workcentres have done… by taking the head unit from a Hitatchi C12RSH 12 inch sliding compound mitre saw and making a bracket to attach it to a bearing carriage they have virtually made the saw capable of cutting down the entire length o...

I am laying out the legs now to accept the panels and railsThis is where the center stile will fit into the top and bottom rail.The tenons are only 1/4” and the panels will float in the rails and stiles. The strength that holds the sides together will be from the rails, the top and bottom shelf which will be 3/8” X 1 1/4” tenons pined from the legs.

2nd Saw ??

09-18-2010 11:04 PM by majeagle1 | 13 comments »

I don’t believe that this subject has been brought up or not before but as I go throught the many processes of making boxes, there are times when I hate to disrupt or change the settings on my table saw ( blade angle to be exact ) and wish that I had a 2nd saw. I know that many of you have both a table saw and miter saw but do any of you have a “2nd saw” like a smaller trim saw / table top saw for cutting smaller, more detailed pieces and maybe different angles? It sure does...
