Simple Decorative Shelf

11-03-2015 07:32 PM by PCorl | 0 comments »

I have just built a simple decorative shelf. I used a sliding dovetail to connect the top to the base. This was a learning opportunity for me because I had never made a sliding dovetail joint. I have uploaded the video and you can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSv-6Xq-liE

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #58: My second major project of the year!

11-01-2015 12:49 PM by PhilBello | 5 comments »

I am sure this will ring bells with many married members, I have got to the stage where it would be nice to go to bed at night, without having to cling onto the edge, to stop myself falling out, because my significant other has hogged near enough the whole bed. We would have liked a 2m x 2m bed, but it just was not feasible in our small bedroom, so we decided on a 1.8m x 1.9m mattress, at least I should be able to lie on my back. The first job was buying the mattress, so I had the correct ...

the never ending organinzing and improvements #2: I SEE IT BOARD. THE ORGANIZATION TOOL.

10-29-2015 02:17 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 0 comments »

Part of every workshop success is being organized and having templates on hand to trace and cut out, my shop is no different, for the longest time I kept my templates stuffed in a box, as of lately I have been getting request for shelves, rather than dig out these templates I created the “I SEE IT BOARD” this way a person can see the options that are available, it will be easier for me as well because I will be able to grab what I need and when I am done I can easily put it back ...

Stanley 45 box #8: Internal Fittings

10-19-2015 06:50 PM by Mitch Peacock | 0 comments »

If the plane and it’s accessories aren’t to be clattering around, then I needed to add some internal fittings. There are all sorts of complicated solutions to be found on the net, and as lovely as some of them are, I don’t see the point in over-engineering the fittings. The plane and it’s accessories should be easy and quick to both store and retrieve. Additionally, there are some optional accessories that I would like to add at a future date, and keeping things simple...

This lathe can take lengths up to 3 meters, we have a bigger one thats used on ...

Stanley 45 box #7: Flushing off the Reinforcements

10-13-2015 01:42 PM by Mitch Peacock | 3 comments »

Last time I installed reinforcements to the plain mitred corners of my Stanley no.45 Box, and left them to cure. Now came the time to flush of the excess material, and knock the sharp edges off. The initial work was done with my small pull saw, after which I turned to a sharp chisel, and then smooth plane and card scraper. Supporting the box over boards clamped to the bench top works really well, and this method is often used when making drawers. Once the surfaces were satisfacto...

Stanley 45 box #4: Groovy

10-12-2015 05:37 PM by Mitch Peacock | 0 comments »

Having mitred the corners, the temptation is to glue the box sides together – a mistake I made once, but never again! Of course you need to make provision for the box bottom and lid first. You could just rebate for the bottom, and rely on glue and pins, but I like to float the bottom in a groove. And a sliding lid, with it’s lack of hardware, makes an ideal choice and also requires a groove. Therefore it seemed only fitting to use the no.45 to make the grooves, which is what I ...

Episode 3 - Hydro-Painting Finish

10-12-2015 07:07 AM by Mike | 2 comments »

Hi All; This week I was very busy so I didn’t have time for a more traditional project video. I did want to try a new finishing technique I had come across called Hydro-Painting. It involves spray paint and a bucket of water. The resulting box is from one of my first attempts. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks, Mike View on YouTube

Stanley 45 box #2: Sizing for the Plane

10-06-2015 09:40 PM by Mitch Peacock | 2 comments »

After getting excited about the new project, it suddenly dawned on me “what if the reclaimed pine I had wasn’t big enough”. Of course I knew I had sufficient wood – after all I had two sizeable drawer boxes. But what if the drawer sides weren’t deep enough to cover both the height of the plane plus allowance for the bottom and lid. Original boxes for the #45 were undoubtedly made without using glued up panels, and I wanted to do the same. It was with some trepida...
