Replacement Speaker Boxes #2: Clamps are off...

12-30-2011 08:22 AM by Nighthawk | 0 comments »

Been a bit slack and well christmas and all that no excuse… anyway both speakers now glued and set, the back piece is not yet glued in, so we can assemble the wiring to the actual speakers when finished etc. Clamps are off and the long slow timely process of sanding to get them loooking good. This will also hide any inperfections of our glue up… Doh Have taped newspaper over speaker faces to protect them the best we can, so no dust can get in anyway. Also have done the same to ...

Spline jig #2: The box from the jig

12-29-2011 10:25 PM by Sanman | 1 comment »

I ended up with a very large spline after playing with the jig. No worries, this is my pallet wood pile to practice with. As far as I can tell, this is a pine box with cedar splines, top, and bottom. My first attempt at routing an edge, lot’s of burs on the end grains. What causes that? The box came out nice. I made 45 cuts and glued together with out clamps. I used tape and checked my square before leaving it to dry. It seems to sit flat on the ts. I worked...

Today’s blog is named councilor either because I need see mine or my day was spent being one.At Tim Horton’s yesterday Tom embarrassed me by playing a DS game while an adult was talking to him. Then as we were leaving a good friend ask him if he got everything he wanted for Christmas and he said “no I wanted a BB gun and didn’t get it”. What, we never heard of this before and besides you have a pellet rifle. I know it sounds like a kid right? Well on Christmas he was very greedy and threw a...

52 Weeks #50: To: The Sewing Room From: The Workshop

12-26-2011 04:05 AM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

The title is exactly what one of the Christmas gifts to my wife was addressed and for good reason. I spent a couple of days working out the details of this: My wife has been wanting a thread holder for quite a while now, I have looked at a number of types and put this one together loosely based on one I have seen at a fabric store and could not bring myself to buy due to the poor construction. There were a number of them falling apart on the shelf and when I mentioned it to the manager...

Spline jig #1: First attempt

12-23-2011 08:03 PM by Sanman | 5 comments »

I made this from scap pallet pieces. FREE WOOD!!! Lot’s of problems. My thought was to leave the fence in the same place and move the box from side to side inside the jig to make larger spline cuts. This way I would only have the one cut through the jig. Not enough support. The box was moving as I cut and I ended up with different size spline cuts that were not square to the box. I plan on increasing the size of the whole thing, but will need to purchase wood to ...

Workbench #1: A Workbench in the making...

12-23-2011 06:40 PM by Tokolosi | 8 comments »

My workspace is my garage. I have a small workspace that I built with some leftover MDF from garage shelves when I moved in. Its a place for just run off the mill round the house kinda stuff. You know, fixing the broken toaster, making a volcano for a school project, glueing together a broken picture frame. So when I started messing around with bigger and bigger wood projects I quickly realized I needed a dedicated workspace for those projects. One not encumbered by walls and laundry equi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #561: I Heard the Bells

12-23-2011 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Well it is my own fault that I am running late today. I just got out of bed and it is already 7am. That is just about unheard of from me. I usually get up somewhere around 5am. It is my ‘quiet time’ and I spend it not only picking around the web and catching up on emails, but also writing here. I have a lot I need to accomplish today and the last thing I needed was to oversleep. But I must have needed it so I will go with the flow here and get what I can done when I can. To...

Router Jig #1: Very simple router jig

12-23-2011 11:47 AM by Nighthawk | 3 comments »

I am one of these people that I just want something to work, I don’t care how the jig looks as long as if it functions they way I want it to, and works well and to make what I am making look good. I work out of a small basement, (still has the uneven dirt floor) and working round house piles, so space is at a premium. For a while I never even had a router, and once I got one I had to work out the best way for to set it up. No room really for a table… While I was thinking about ...

Box with hand cut finger joints #1: Making the cut

12-23-2011 05:59 AM by Sanman | 5 comments »

I decided I was going to get some free wood from a local retail store that had left over pallets laying around. After getting permission, I borrowed a pick-up truck and got a load of pallets home. Trial and error taught me you can not just hammer them apart and expect to have any usable wood. I finally used a handheld circular saw and carefully missed the nails as I disassembled the pallets. I managed to get four small pieces that looked like they could make a box. I cleaned up the edges o...
