Making a Violin #4: Cutting the 4mm edge to size

11-22-2010 07:26 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

The wood shaped to the line. If you check back a few posts there were two lines. My ‘final’ line is what you see remaining. Here’s a jig I made to cut the edges to size. Does anyone see what ‘the problem’ is in this picture? Think hard… It’s a 1hp Craftsman router with a 3/8” straight bit. I call it a ‘face off’ bit, but I could be wrong? The jig part is the device holding the router steady. It’s 1/8” alu...

Book Bench #1: The Project & The Legs (profiles)

11-17-2010 07:31 PM by spunwood | 4 comments »

The Project In Mid/Late September a friend of ours mentioned to Stephanie that she was looking for something like a window seat with book shelves/storage…sans window. I jumped at the opportunity to try my hand. I had a plan by William Draper, a PA craftsman from an August 1996 edition of American Woodworker, pg. 32 (off of google). I had been really wanting to try my hand at the bench. I loved the profile, the simple style, and the chance to hone basic skills such as mortise &...

Xee - construction

11-14-2010 05:55 PM by BritBoxmaker | 10 comments »

Xee is the third in the series of my EZ mitred boxes. There are one or two wrinkles to this one so I’m blogging those bits here. Firstly in order to achieve continuity of pattern over the whole box it was essential to make this a veneered box. Until such time as they come up with a zero kerf sawblade or a knife that can cut through several millimetres of wood the seperation cut for the box top causes an unacceptable step in the pattern if solid wood were used. The veneer at 0.6mm is ...

I have spent about six months looking at various pictures, plans and ideas that other woodworkers used for their woodworking bench. I finally settled on a design that I saw in Popular Woodworking. I chose the 21st Century Woodworking bench.

Making a Violin #3: Sides, or 'Ribs' ~ Bending & Gluing

11-12-2010 01:24 AM by RonPeters | 7 comments »

Ok, I’m back… Had a bit of an issue with the bending iron. It seems it is rather delicate and putting it on high (10) is a no no. It’s a Watlow ‘Firerod’ embedded in the aluminum tower. The current flow at 10 apparently burns out the element? It requires about an hour to get to bending temperature – and had I read the sheet that it came with… It was repaired free of charge and henceforth I will be careful to mind the dial! Nothing past 5 from no...
