Tool Chest #3: Almost A Lid

12-07-2011 06:15 AM by JaLatham | 11 comments »

Laying out lid parts for marking. Marking from the piece being used, instead of measuring and worrying about numbers allows you to be way more accurate. Squaring up the panel. I cut right on the line this time. Practice really does help! “Scrubbing” the panel to width with my fore plane. Jointing the edge. Plowing end grain is no joke! Boring holes in the frame fore drawboring with my little helper. Almost a lid! ...

Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #4: Making the handle and finishing the tote

12-06-2011 02:30 AM by ~Julie~ | 9 comments »

Now that we have the size of the handle piece, the actual handle has to be cut out of it.For now I keep the piece as a rectangle, and will do the angled sides after the handle is cut out. I’m using my router and a template guide to remove the area for the handle. First I need to make a template out of hardboard that is 11/32” larger than the actual size of the oval hole that I want. I determined a hole 3 1/2” long and 1 1/8” wide for the handle would be good for t...

Tool Chest #2: Starting The Lid

12-04-2011 04:06 AM by JaLatham | 4 comments »

Ripping stock to size. I really don’t know why I was staying so far from the line. Not that it matters. Apparently my sawing has been getting better. I stayed away from the line to allow for wandering of the saw blade, but it tracked so straight that I think I can stick right next to the line next time. Jointing sawn edges. While I know that the shavings aren’t what is important, seeing the difference in the shavings of my jointer plane(on top), and my fore plane(on ...

Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #3: Finishing the inside

12-01-2011 05:31 AM by ~Julie~ | 2 comments »

Now that the sides, ends and bottom are cut I stain them, on the insides only, before putting the box of the tote together. It’s much easier to stain before glueing because trying to reach your hand inside a box and stain it is very difficult. With pine, I use flecto Varathane’s Gel Stain. It does not require any undercoating and always give me a streak-proof finish. Not all stains work well on pine but I have had great success with this. I rub it on with a piece of old t-s...

Tool Chest #1: Dovetails Done

11-30-2011 08:41 PM by JaLatham | 4 comments »

Lately I’ve been working on a toolchest. So far, I’ve cut my first dovetails by hand, cut my first tongue and grooves, and assembled the case. What looks like a gap in the back right corner is actually glue squeezout I haven’t cleaned up yet. Next comes the lid, and my first raised panel with no power. Sweet.

Shop builds #1: work bench

11-30-2011 04:51 AM by SamuelP | 2 comments »

One day this workbench may be done. It is made from construction lumber. 4×4s, 2×6s and 2×4s. Other than being a functional piece for my “shop”. I wanted this to be a learning process for joinery I have not attempted. The size is about 4’x2’x35”. The small size has been depicted by my small space, the front portion of a 1 car garage. My one goal was to complete the structure of this workbench using no hardware, i.e., nails, screws, bo...

Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #2: Cutting the side and end pieces

11-28-2011 12:36 AM by ~Julie~ | 4 comments »

In the previous post (part 1) I showed how to prepare the wood for the four totes I am making. After the wood was resawn and cut apart with the handsaw it will have a slight ridge down the middle (and often a few scratches from the saw). You can remove the ridges, if you like, with a hand plane, but it’s not necessary. The wood is put through the planer until it reaches the desired thickness, which in my case, is 1/2” 6 pieces are needed for each tote, two sides,...

Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #1: Preparing the Wood

11-25-2011 08:11 PM by ~Julie~ | 5 comments »

This series of posts will show how I made four condiment totes for a local restaurant. I’m going to show most steps from rough wood to finished product. Most of you will find this basic, but hopefully I can help some beginners see how things are put together. The restaurant wanted holders for ketchup, mustard, relish and vinegar that the waitresses or waiters could take to the table with them. (In Canada, some of us like white vinegar on our fries. On my trips to the U. S., I hav...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #526: On the Road Again . . .

11-18-2011 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post will be brief (for me!) because we are heading out soon. We discovered that there is this huge craft show in Wolfville at Acadia University this weekend and we thought we would scout it out. The link to the show is Here It looks like a really cool event. The booth prices are nearly $300 which is mighty steep, and it is $6 to get in the door, but we hope that means that it will be a lot of quality stuff will be there. This is not a flea market! So we are loading ...
