Dave's Workshop #16: Small Picture Frame Clamping Jig

03-20-2016 01:11 AM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

[Legebla en Esperanto] [Above] Typical example of Mother Necessity. I needed a way to glue up a small live-edge picture frame plus 5 of it’s sisters sometime down the line. The live edge made it impossible to use a strap clamp or even a rubber band. So after thinking about it, I came up with this ‘simple’ clamping jig. It consists of a pair of cross pieces, the height and width of which match the height and width of the intended frame size. The four cut out corners of...

Somewhere in this jumble of clamps you will see a small live edge picture frame. I think I’ll be making a jig to clamp these as have 5 more to make.

Current Project #3: 1st Real Picture Frame

08-28-2014 07:43 PM by Dave Rutan | 8 comments »

Another house project. We’ve wanted to frame a large piece of my daughter’s artwork. The cost of frames is a bit higher than me making one out of an old drawer front found on the curb. I’ll be doing the matting as well—a new skill to be acquired!

Also, video blog is here: I was looking for some photos and saw this – very old, and remembered that long time ago saw rare architecture, sculptures and houses in Riga. I always liked how the tree with impression of the ages looks. It reminded me my childhood, when my grandfather was making different things in «old style». The more things changed, the more they stay the same – and in this time «old style» ...

Old Clamps #1: Antique or Old Clamps

05-06-2013 07:17 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

I’ve been keeping an eye on a popular auction website for old wood clamps. I’m not buying them, but I like to look at them. Sometimes I see one that looks particularly interesting or unique. Often look look very similar in design. I’m going to occasionally post pictures of interesting clamps I see. Some of these might give us ‘homemade clamp’ aficionados some ideas. Universal disclaimer, I’m not meaning to advertise for these items. I’m not lin...

It’s a simple and yet strong joint. I decided to show how to make it using both power tools and hand tools. Hope you enjoy it.chad stanton

Hope Chest Build #1: The layout

11-29-2011 04:44 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I have never used sketchup to really do any project. I, however, wanted this project to go smooth and for it to go smooth, you MUST have a plan. I didn’t want to go and just wing it and screw something up. I’m building this for a lady to give to her grand daughter so I wanted it to be something that could be handed down for generations. The drawing is what I have come up with. It will be able to hold 8 pictures in the front that can be interchangable as the years progress and ...

A whale of a time (Marquetry) #1: The Plan

04-28-2011 02:57 PM by Chris Davis | 3 comments »

I’m starting a very exciting project. Anything new that I try is exciting for me. I love new things and new techniques. I build a lot of murphy beds, as you can see from my post, but when I got customer wanting to add a whale design to one, I was all in. I don’t consider myself an artist or my work art, so this would be my first attempt at something like that. I’ve heard and read a little on marquetry and decided this would be the direction I’d take the customer....
