Miter Bench and Storage #1: Getting started with the base

03-14-2008 11:22 PM by sIKE | 12 comments »

Finally got started on Norms Miter Bench and Storage. I had previously rough cut the base components so thankfully I didn’t have to break down six sheets of 3/4 ply. I started with the rabbits and the dado’s on all of the pannels. Note, the rabbits (when called for) go on the back not the front of the panel, most important on the right cabinet (scratch one panel). Then used a template to cut the notches and hole in the back for dust collection (scratch the same panel the second t...

Wood Lathe Router Guide #1: Wood Lathe Router Guide

09-12-2012 03:36 AM by Jim Jakosh | 15 comments »

I’ll take you through the steps I used to build my router guide for my wood lathe. It is essentially a box with adjustable sides and top which has a slot to guide the router bushing. It is made from 5/8” plywood, clear Lexan, Steel and aluminum.I started with a 11.5×11.5 bottom and cut rabbets on both sides on the table saw and made a cut out for the tail stock. The sides were glued in place held square by a couple scrap blocks. They had T nuts installed for the adjustment ...

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...

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...

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 ...

How to build a Desk Top Easel Recently I built a desk top art easel for my mother for Christmas, She requested one from Santa, but since he is busy making toys for all the boys and girls, the task was up to me.

The easel is made of Walnut and Oak it features two trays which can hold all of your paint supplies, as well as a paint pallet made from birch. The brass hardware and Oak Splines really set...

Miter Saw Bench #1: Photos and information about the miter saw bench I'm building.

01-28-2012 05:13 PM by ToddinNH | 10 comments »

I just finished setting up a cool new Miter Saw Bench in my new shop. The bench is about 90% complete. I still need to make a few drawers for it but other than that it’s finished. The bench is set up for my Bosch Glide Saw. I’ve built two adjustable fences to either side of the saw using the Kreg Precision Trak & Stop System. I also installed some T-Track in the tops so I can adjust the fences from front to back. The saw can be moved front to back as well when I nee...

Planning the Makeover #3: SketchUp Plans - Miter Saw & Router Mobile Workstation

02-19-2010 06:27 AM by Jeison | 9 comments »

I had some fun with this one, it still needs a bit of tweaking, need to add some details and adjust some dimensions, but I thought I’d throw it up to share until I have time to go back over it. I combined a pretty standard style Router cabinet from an issue of Wood magazine, with a Miter Saw cart from Fine Woodworking, and plopped them both onto a mobile base from another issue of Wood. The Miter Saw station has a flip up, extendable wing on the left side, and on the right side the ...

Picture frame profiles

04-13-2011 05:53 AM by devann | 5 comments »

I was checking out some picture frames that spunwood has on the site and ask to see some profiles. My request was granted so now it’s my turn. I went out to the shop and took these pictures. Hope that this helps those of us that don’t have molding cutters see another way to do it. This one is weathered cedar and a piece of redwood cut with a cove bit on the routertable and a piece of longleaf pine with a rabbet cut making the inside of the frame. Here I used ipe with sedona ...
