"Art Box" Tutorial #12: Shaping

1847 days ago by Andy | 28 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is the fun part! Its scary too! The idea of taking a nice crisp box, one you have spent countless hours making, and attacking it with a tool designed for slag removal is…well…its a little disturbing. Maybe I was influenced by old Hitchcock movies more than I know. Seriously, what I enjoy is the freedom this gives me. Everything up to this point has been tied to measurements and careful setups. This is where we can cut loose a little. But slow down Hot...

1849 days ago by kosta | 3 comments »

Yo whats up everybody so I got a call from my grand mother in Detroit and she asked me if I could make some crosses for her. My grand father is a priest in Detroit and she needed some for sunday school so I said ok how many you need and she was like 150 now it takes me about 5 minutes to make 2 crosses because I cut it in half. That includes cutting out the pattern and sanding it and staining it now I have already finished about 50 and they need them by September so I hurry up. I get about 3...

Large bench made from the tree that stood in the grounds.

1850 days ago by mreagleeyes | 18 comments »

I am working on yet another piece and thought I’d share me project so far with you guys. The Magnolia ‘Salicifolia’ tree had stood in the grounds of the Inner Temple on London’s Thames for over 80 years but due to a fungus it had to come down. My original plan was to use the timber as a practice piece that I could use my new Arbortech grinder on, however whilst the guys where cutting the tree down the girl in charge of the gardens asked what I would do with the t...

Briefcase #2: Cutting, sanding, finishing and glueing

1853 days ago by Chris Wright | 2 comments »

So, now I’ve got the bulk of the work done on the case. Where I left off in my last blog I had cut the sides and glued the top together. Now, I got the top down to the right size. This was a little tricky because I wanted to keep the joint pretty much right in the middle of the panel. Once it was to size it was time to route a cove along the edges so I could fit them into the slots I cut into the sides. I used a cove cutting bit that I filed the guide bearing post off of so I wil...

Need plan for table saw dust collection.

1856 days ago by John Gray | 4 comments »

I purchased the hood shown in the link below. http://www.pennstateind.com/store/R-TDHOOD.html And I want to install it on my Ridgid TA3650 saw. Now comes the good part!!! I had a plan to build a unit that incorporates the hood. The unit is 3/4” plywood (2’x4 1/2’ approx.) that bolts between the saw and the stand, you screw the dust hood to the plywood. The plan shows a drawer and shelf using the plywood “overhang” to the left of the saw and a shelf on t...

150 [Cutting] Boards by the end of September. #1: Day 1

1856 days ago by degoose | 25 comments »

Gidday from the land down under [where men thunder]. I have been reading lately about the 30 in 30 and have decided to up the ante.As most of you know I love making boards so I plan to make at least 150 by the end of September or early October. The main reason for this challenge to myself is that I have been invited to the Melbourne Working With Wood Show in October and I don’t want to turn up with just a handfull of boards. Most of you know that I also have a regular job so this ...
