Large Carved Frame #1: Background

339 days ago by Rex B | 1 comment »

This project is a few months old, but I’m just now getting around to writing this blog. I came up with a novel method of carving intricate shapes with a router, and I thought it was worth sharing. I’m probably not the first to come up with this technique, but I came up with it on my own without really seeing it anywhere else. The background: My wife wanted to make a large chalkboard to hang in our dining area, so I cut a large piece of cheap hardboard (30” square) and we ...

Free 18th Century Style 3/4" Wooden Rabbet Plane Plans

490 days ago by Caleb James | 7 comments »

So in the spirit of getting everyone in the shop and cutting up some wood I decided to post up a measured drawing of a 3/4” wooden rabbet plane in the 18th century style. It is all wood with the exception of the blade which is easily gotten from Lie-Nielsen here. It features a conical escapement and some simple embellishments that a hand plane, chisel, and #7 sweep gouge can handle. The plans are basic with a few things that can be easily changed if you like. Such as the bed angle...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #19: Getting the Face on the Base

558 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 29 comments »

There’s been more progress in the last several days than in the several months previous, so here goes another installment… When we spoke last, the Venerable Wall Hung Hung Tool Cabinet was where it has been for nearly ten months: on it’s back, on top of my assembly bench. The tambour has been fitted, and the sliding plane till door is in working order, albeit bounded by f-clamps and a certain, left-most stile. Oh, the stile. Here it is, and without any detail (sorr...

Wood Types and Properties #2: Know your wood #2-Beech

1168 days ago by Paul Sellers | 3 comments »

Beech trees grow abundantly throughout the temperate zones of Europe, Asia and North America. The wood is of very even denseness throughout the grain because of its relatively small pores evenly distributed through both the early and late growth of each growth cycle (annual ring). My first mallet was made from beech and most mallets for three hundred years would have come from the beech tree. Though that is the case, and beech is a hard wood, I find beech just a little too soft for making...

Grandma's Picture Frame #3: Zero Clearance Take 2: Using a Molding Head on the Table Saw, Safety and Other Thoughts

1258 days ago by spunwood | 1 comment »

In the last blog entry, the table saw molding cutter fiasco was discussed. After some feedback, and encouragement, and trust that the mishap was partly due to a knot in the wood (WHO PUT THAT THERE!), I went back and reworked the Insert. This time I made it slower, neater, and let the cutter itself remove the kerf by very, VERY slowly raising it while the fence held it down. If you do this, please use a cutter that has both outside edges; otherwise, you may not have created a universal slot f...

Grandma's Picture Frame #1: Thinking through the Design & Dimensions

1262 days ago by spunwood | 1 comment »

My mother suggested that I make a picture frame for my grandmother’s 100th birthday. The party is in march, and the four of us (Stephanie, Beatrice, Elijah, and I) will be flying to New York. I looked online for table saw frames because I do not have much skil with or many bits for a router, and no router table. What I found was: http://americanwoodworker.com/blogs/projects/archive/2009/12/04/tablesaw-picture-frame.aspx This is a lovely and classic frame. The wood is beaut...

Stopped by a job we did today..

2138 days ago by CraftsmanCollective | 4 comments »

Well, I got a call from a developer we do finish trim design and installs for and he asked me to contact the new owner of one of the homes they built that we did all the finish trim inside. Got a chance to snap a few more pics real quick so I thought I’d add them to the blog. Heres the DiningRoom Pillars, I thought they needed a crown head but the owner wanted to be cheap…sigh.. This next one is of some Alder Beams we did in the Family Room. Heres a shot of the Mas...

It's alive!

2303 days ago by Tom Adamski | 19 comments »

Well, after a little bit of tweeking, It looks to be working… (keeping my fingers crossed). This was just to be a proof of concept (prototype), but it seems to be working well enough that I’ll use it for the rest of the production and make a better one next time. Thanks to all for your suggestions. !(Working router trammel)! Sincerely, Tom

Large scale moulding on the cheap...

2303 days ago by Tom Adamski | 13 comments »

In an attempt to cut a large radius nosing for some mantels I’m making, I’m in process of making a router trammel to support the bit in a constant arc. Made from 3/4 ply, my inspiration is based off an old Fine Woodworking article and tablesaw trunions. I still need to mount it to a stable base, fit a router and bit and the fire it up… I’ll post more when I make some sawdust. Tom
