Exposed Finger Joint Box #2: The base

02-22-2017 05:44 PM by splintergroup | 1 comment »

The base of this box is where anyone can “go wild” with design options. The basics are simple, a frame with lap joints, filled with a plywood panel. The feet are simple squares. A pdf file with dimensions for the base can be found here The design allows for the base to have 1/2” of exposure along its perimeter with the box, basically it aligns flush with the boxes inside dimensions.A felt covered plywood piece fits into a routed shelf to seal off the box bottom. Th...

Exposed Finger Joint Box #1: Intro (The Body)

02-21-2017 07:20 PM by splintergroup | 5 comments »

I’ve had several inquiries for plans or more info into the details of my exposed finger joint boxes I’ve been building of late. Plans get complex and are often best explained in some detail, hence this project blog. Lots of pictures and details, hopefully clear and not too boring 8^) A set of dimensional drawings (4 pfd files) can be downloaded here It’s next to impossible for drawings like these to contain all the details. These boxes have simple structure, but a l...

View on YouTube Few time I decided it was time to improve my sharpening gadgets, so after some research I found this design of a sink a bridge. its basically two board, one on top of each other merged with a screw that also serves as lock to put the stones. In the end I gave it a nice coat of epoxy to make it waterproof. Now I have a tool that makes my life easier and that its gonna last. Hope you like this video. And if you want you can also find more projects and builds in my channel h...

100 foot cabinet shop #1: Thoughts behind the shop and working standards

02-13-2017 01:50 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Used to have a shop, X got in the divorce. :( Fast forward 15 years & I have 2/3 of 1/2 of a garage to build a cabinet shop in. The core of any shop is the table saw and within my (retired) spending limit I got a brand new Grizzly G0715P. Simultaneously with the saw purchase I added an Incra LS-III rip fence and an Incra miter gauge. I’m disabled and can’t walk / stand a lot so everything is within reach of my chair in front of the saw. I’ve got most all of th...

I am looking for someone who can make a steel/iron band for a dining room table I am making. Any ideas? It would be 2” tall 1/4” thick and 226 long. I want the metal to be stippled and rounded on outer edges. Anyone have any experience with this?

Building without a plan

01-30-2017 01:26 AM by bbasiaga | 3 comments »

I recently built a plane till for my hand planes. This was one of the first things I’ve done where I didn’t draw up a plan before I started. I see a lot of posts from beginning woodworkers asking for plans for things. They see something they like, but then don’t know where to start or have a vision of something they want to build but have a hard time understanding how it would go together. Well, I crossed a major bridge on that in this recent project. Instead of spend...

Shop stuff #73: Sally's Coffee Table Part 10

I finally get to the end of the wood work and start finishing in this one. It is hard to believe there was so much to it. It was a long and challenging build and despite being very ruthless in cutting things out, there is still a ton of video. View on YouTube

My dust colection set-up

01-23-2017 04:48 PM by haskins | 2 comments »

as woodworkers, we strive for the best dust collection possible, well maybe no the best but enough that our machines will work. I’ve seen many videos of people showing their set-up, however I haven’t found one similar to mine, so hear is my video.— https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXC0T1fUDOo
