Butterfly Dining Table #5: Split Top Sliding Assembly

11-24-2015 11:27 PM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

After the base assembly is complete, I start working on the sliding mechanism that will carry the split top. I use maple for some of the parts, and walnut for the slides that will be attached to the table top when I complete it. Although not very complex, it is a design that demands precision to work correctly. You Tube Link – As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To get updates of this build as I go along, please follow me on Inst...

Countersink From Screwdriver Bit

11-19-2015 08:26 PM by Tom Howbridge | 1 comment »

Using an old driver bit I made a counter sink by cutting of the ends and grinding a blunt point on one end, then I filed a flute along the ground edge, I used a cheap bit as its a lot easier to work with and sharpen but a good quality bit may hold a better edge. I found it worked really well with an impact driver a drill driver, high speed low speed, it worked quite well even for large headed screws, dry for yourself to see if you can create one just like mine or even better ! WATCH THE...

Thought I would share pics of the slab flattening machine I am constantly upgrading. Made from 80/20 extrusion, it’s basically a CNC minus the computer and motor drives. While it could be converted, I like to manually run the router, so I have control over the cut. Here’s the basic machine: Slabs are held down via a vacuum table. Super simple design using a shop vac and weatherstripping. The router is held steady on the track with linear bearings and a moun...

Cabinetmaker's Toolchest #1: Cutting the box material, glue up and smoothing.

11-13-2015 09:40 PM by dannorocks | 3 comments »

Well this is my first attempt at a blog here; so here’s my go at it. About a year ago I came across a handful of older hand tools at an estate sale and since then I’ve put them to use and have been accumulating more and more hand tools. I recently moved and felt ashamed to put them in carboard boxes and crates I quickly made to get by with the time constraint. Now that I’m setting up shop all over again from scratch (divorce), literally from the ground up. I have the...

Splinters of thought #8: Mind your own Beeswax

11-11-2015 03:05 AM by bearkatwood | 1 comment »

While I was in Portland I got to see the master class graduation at the Northwest School of Woodworking and all the beautiful work they had created. I had time to see Portland a bit and got to go to the famous Powell’s bookstore. I went to an apple festival in Estacada where I got to make my own apple cider. While there I was able to watch some carvers working on a large tree stump that was to become a totem of a kind and some little kids trying out some old woodworking. I saw an ...

WoodShop Thoughts. #1: Freaking Drawers

11-07-2015 02:54 AM by Matt | 7 comments »

So as most of you know I finished my cabinet a few weeks ago save the drawers. Since my mother’s garage cabinets that some of you have seen, I have had an outright war with drawers. I cannot seem to get them right, ever. I have tried the expensive soft close all the way to the under and side mount white roller slidey ones. This time was no different. I bought those crappy white roller wheel sliders because they were cheap and I wanted to try something new (not to mention it was fo...
