Making simple boxes with inlay designs in lid.

01-09-2012 07:50 PM by Jim Finn | 1 comment »

I make simple boxes, mostly of cedar with poplar inlays. There are many fine ways to make boxes and this is about the simplest. I make them 11”x8”x2 1/2” deep with hinged lid. 8” is my limit of the width of wood so anything over that will have a splice in it, which I avoid doing. I start by planeing and re-sawing the 1” thick rough eastern red cedar to 3/8” thickness on my band saw. I then cut strips to 2 1/4” to form the sides ...

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #2: Last night was a good night

03-30-2012 01:49 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 4 comments »

After a very early morning and a good day working away from my normal 40 hour a week job. I was able to spend the latter half of yesterday working on my bench. I managed to get the skirts cut, and installed. I did not glue the sides on or the top on. Here is the results…. How do you guys like that Japanese angle guide. It was worth the $55 I paid for it, and will never leave my toolbox. The bottom picture shows how my bench is different from Mr. Sellers’...

Bedroom Set #2: Side panels allmost ready for assembly

09-20-2010 05:24 AM by sandhill | 20 comments »

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.

Construction Steps for Kevin Rodel Arts and Craft Chairs #1: Crest Rail Construction

05-03-2013 04:16 AM by kbiniowa | 2 comments »

Quartersawn oak blanks are cut to 14” long and 1 5/8” thick. The upper crest rails are 3” wide and the lower rails are 2 ½” wide. I chose to construct the chair with floating tenons so that I could mill and cut all of the rails to the exact same length. A bench-top mortising machine is used to make the mortises for the upper and lower crest rails. The 3/8” chisel is set exactly parallel to the machine’s fence, then an auxiliary fence is installed and shimmed to the proper angle required. Sto...

Shop Updates #5: Router Table - Dust Collection

07-01-2008 02:14 AM by teenagewoodworker | 10 comments »

to make my routing work environment more enjoyable i added a few different dust collection systems to my router table. as well as showing the fence that i made for it. first I’ll start off with the fence. it has a 2” opening that goes up high about 3 1/2” to allow for higher bits. so the fence is about 6 inches high for maximum support. and about 2 inches longer than the router table on both sides for maximum work piece support on both the infeed and outfeed sides. so here i...

A New Work Bench, Mikey Style

07-04-2012 02:59 AM by MT_Stringer | 6 comments »

Several years ago, I built a simple work table as a table saw outfeed table. It quickly became my do it all table. It is made out of 2×4’s and two pieces of 1/2 inch cd plywood which I had stored out in my shed. Fast forward to the present time. Lately I have gotten a renewed interest in woodworking. I have been doing some type of carpentry since the 70’s when I was helping my dad build pole barns. After my dad passed away, I was given his Craftsman table saw (circa 197...

Miter/Workbench Station #1: The Beginning

01-27-2010 06:25 PM by alexbarlage | 10 comments »

Miter Saw / Workbench in stock lumber stage Framed base of bench, 5/8” OSB, 2×4 frame 16” O.C Base with 1/8” sacrificial hardboard on top. I need some opinions on the hardboard fastening, can’t decided which route to go. Should I use fasteners or adhesive? I’m leaning towards the adhesive, but then once you pick that, you then have a broad spectrum of types of adhesive. What has everyone else used in this application? I plan on ruining the top at so...

Miter Bench and Storage #3: The top is on and it is trimmed out (mostly)

03-30-2008 02:49 AM by sIKE | 8 comments »

I managed to get the top on during the week and got it mos of it trimmed out today. I need one more small stick of poplar to finish off the edge by the bench top tools.I decided that I didn’t like the setup for the bottom piece of the dust collection for the miter saw. I took the top off and moved the hood to the top of the bench.You can see that I also have got the line ran for my compressed air.I am planning to use a small and lite coiled air hose to get the dust off that isn’t ...

The Process of Segmented Woodturning

06-22-2010 01:11 AM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

Segmented woodturning is an interesting craft. It is one of those wood projects that requires more than just a wood lathe and some lathe tools. It helps to have woodworking equipment such as a table saw, a planer, a jointer, a mitresaw, an open stand drum sander, and a disc sander. Also when starting out you’ll need to design for your segmented woodturning project . First, decide if you want to turn a bowl, a vase, salt and peppermills, or even a lamp. Next, you’ll need to dr...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #4: Miter Keys

12-16-2010 06:16 AM by FaTToaD | 2 comments »

In this final section of the Wine Cork Display Tutorials I will show you how I cut and glue in the miter keys. Larger Picture Version LJ Project of Finished Displays Here you can see my miter key jig. Since I cut so many miter keys for the wine cork displays and the boxes I make, I decided that a nice, large, dedicated jig would save me a lot of time. It works really well, I’ve used the heck out it. The first thing I do is figure out how far from the edge I want my keys to...
