Set the blade of the table saw to 60 degrees.. a bevel box makes this simpleI use the INCRA fence system so it is easy to rip bevels off side of the blade.Once the bevels are ripped measure the length of the bevel and move the f...

Apothecary Cabinet.. #1: Where have I been?

08-04-2010 11:07 PM by degoose | 33 comments »

Well I have been busy with a new project that was commissioned a few years ago… I have been putting it off because of the sheer immensity of the project…even though it is small in size the amount of production work is daunting… The new project is a 35 drawer Apothecary Cabinet... I am thinking that the main carcass will be New Guinea Rosewood.. as will the drawer fronts…. the sides and backs of the drawers will be Hoop Pine.... To give you and idea I have taken...

I started off with a rough sawn board of New Guinea Rosewood.. Ripped and dressed to size …5 inches by 3/4 inch…Cut the mitres on the sides on the Incra Mitre Express and then cut a groove top and bottom … the top got a bookmatched panel of ugly NGR with a fine stripe of Silver Ash down the middle.. the base was some really fine plywood…lolThis shot shows the box glued together and with the sliding dovetail spline slots cut… used the Kehoe Jig .. you can see my ...

This board is not part of the 150.. I showed one of the 150 to a friend and she wanted one but a little larger,This is the way it was made.Cut some bits of board. NGR SA TBDress all sides.This is to see the way it will look with the stripe. Cut all pieces to 250 mm.Join the NGR and edge with TB on one and SA for the other.Glue a sacrificial board to the SA prior to cutting the arcs.This is the arc cutting jig.. a slight variation on the patron jigSet the stop with a nail… high tech I kn...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #3: Surfacing an endgrain block.

07-16-2009 12:29 AM by degoose | 22 comments »

As you all know trying to flatten a large endgrain butcher block can be a little tricky.I use a 16 – 32 drum sander and it is fine for small blocks but this bugger was large and heavy [2 1/2 ” thick]. BTW Purple Heart and New Guinea RosewoodUsing the new surfacer head on the router on the the new wee beastie made flattening this block a breeze.The depth of cut is set and the fore and aft axis is locked while allowing movement sideways. Starting at the front of the block a small p...

05-01-2012 08:42 PM by degoose | 20 comments »

Got a bit of time in the workshop for ME today, making an endtable for the sofa in the family room… this is where Deb does her crocheting and needed two things… a table for her cuppa.. and a drawer to hide her wool and things away from the puppies… The other day we found a really nice woven basket… so begins the build of a cabinet to house the basket.. The top is two pieces of Narra [New Guinea Rosewood] glued up… The main carcass is also made from Narra...

Spirals #6: We are not finished yet.

06-03-2009 02:23 AM by degoose | 18 comments »

Next step is to make the ends of the segments curved. Shell-like if you want.For that we need a new jig.. Yeah I know some of you haven’t finished the first one..!This is ultra simple.Firstly a fresh piece of ply .. 1/4 ” is fine.I inserted a bearing to make this more durable .. same same as last one.This was positioned 4.5 ” from the end[centred on the width] and an arc cut on the end via the circle cutting jig.. same same.Cut two fences same as the one of the first jig &#...

Catamaran Cupboard Door Remake... #7: Final straight...

02-17-2011 11:53 PM by degoose | 17 comments »

Coming down the home straight with these doors. Here is a quick shot of the set up for the slot cutting on the old router table.. Finished the rebates on the panels… back 4 mm and the front 7 mm Using the Incra Fence and the Woodpecker Unilift made it easy to switch from one height to another … Moved the blade on the TS to 45 degrees and positioned the fence for the bevel cuts on the front of the panels.. A Wixey Digital Ange Guide is very useful here.. A...
