Another simple little box? #2: Glue ups, just glue ups

05-03-2016 04:06 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Some went nicely…some resulted in clamps flying across the shop….Ever try to clamp up a thin panel? Finally, to stop all the hijinks going on, used the vise to hold the two flat, and then added the clamps. Had rebates to mill along the bottom edges of all four sides.. The 78 to mill it, the shoulder plane did the clean up…except for my floor, though. No longer have Igor for broom work, I guess I get to do that. laid out the recess for the shoulder plane to sit ...

Getting my tools ready #25: Shop Made 2'x4' Down Draft Table

05-01-2016 07:47 PM by DocSavage45 | 24 comments »

DOWNDRAFT TABLE BUILD – 2016 This is a project I needed to do to work on my boxes. I’m sharing details for LJ’s who might want to build their own if they haven’t already. Minnesota winter means enclosed shop. Dust! I needed a table that would fill a number of functions for me. I wanted a large enough space to sand furniture parts as well as making boxes. I’m providing this blog for those of you who want to make a slightly larger down draft table/box. I...

Another simple little box? #1: A start up, and some finger joints

05-01-2016 03:26 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Again. Well, a trip to Lowes produced a couple of boards….3/8 by 5-1/2 wide. One was 2’ long, the other was 3’. Laid out the two planes that will go into the box. Needed a length and a width..But, before too much got done, decided to clear the deck, and clean it up a bit…. Seems it has been abused lately.. Anyway, once I got a length, I could grab a crosscut saw and saw to a line.. Just barely leaving the line.. Hey, the original “Cordless...

Conference Room Table #1: Table top help

04-29-2016 11:24 PM by RPG | 2 comments »

Hello lumber jock community. I’d love some advise and pics if possible on this. I’ve been asked to build a conference room table for a small company. I’m on a low budget but want to obviously make a quality top. I made the pedestals already but struggling with the top and budget. My thoughts are to either join oak 3/4” 6X8’s together or a sheet of oak ply and join butter board ends. I was going to pocket hole and glue everything together and case it with 1X3 o...

Tilt-Out Wastebasket Cabinet #2: Assembly

04-27-2016 09:40 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

Had to narrate this one. In this video I cover the final cutting and assembly of the wastebasket cabinet. I used pocket holes because they are easy and sturdy enough for this application. To further strengthen the cabinet, I added a back to keep it from racking. I struggled a bit with the part that hods the trash can, and have since changed the design. Plans are located here:https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwBb81zPeVCXMFdibTFpRHdySGsThanks for watching! View on YouTube Instagram: h...

I don’t have much done yet. I started by going on thedesignconfidential.com to get my plans. Then I started by cutting the pine to the right size for the project. Lastly I only have some of it done but will get more done over time.

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #76: A Tip When Making Simple Sanding Blocks

04-10-2016 09:49 PM by PhilBello | 14 comments »

Before I get underway, the first tip has to be…It doesn’t matter how careful you are, accidents still happen I started cutting for my sanding blocks, don’t ask what happened, I don’t know, I just know I was aware I was about to have a kickback on the table saw, I was using push blocks, tried to get out of the way, and in doing so, lost one and a bit finger tips!! The tip, is to make sure you keep a tube of Superglue in your First Aid Kit, after washing the woun...

here is a link to my bench video: https://youtu.be/29BgWjv5n6A In this Video, I’m building a bench with my daughter’s assistance for our BBQ area. My influence was Izzy Swan’s video “Pay it forward bench.” Basic construction grade lumber was used with glue and pocket screws. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paf4H...Lizzy’s Video
