foot powered Scroll saw #5: Table and trundle

1822 days ago by Tom8021 | 2 comments »

Some scroll work requires you to tilt the table. I accomplish this by allowing the table to pivot on the tower end and created a trundle on the opposite end. The thing to remember is the top of the table is 5” off the base. With the table width at 12” I created a curve so that the radius is 4 1/2” . The trundle is 2” wide 1/2” ply with a 3/4” slot in the middle. The slot can be smaller it just needs to be able to pass the lag bolt through it. The su...

foot powered Scroll saw #4: The Tower

1822 days ago by Tom8021 | 1 comment »

The tower needs to be beefy. I had some 7/8 ASH laying around so I used it. Everything hinges on the tower so don’t be shy adding a few bolts. The lower part ( 2 1/2×15 1/2) is just bolted to the base with three lag bolts. I drilled the base so the bolt heads sat flush with the bottom. There are dados for the vertical pieces. I wanted to make sure I could minimize any movement and I think this works with the triangle supports. By the way the dimension of 13” on the to...

"Art Box" Tutorial #9: It all hinges on this.

1823 days ago by Andy | 8 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is where you need to decide how you want to open your box. I mentioned at the outset about some of the different boxes I have made and how they hinge differently from one another. All are good, but you may have a preference in style or it may be your ability that decides for you. The pin hinge is what we will mainly be focusing on and was used on this box. Chapter 10 will discuss this style. The Deco box uses a standard brass butt hinge with a stop stra...

foot powered Scroll saw #3: tension adjusting and blade mechanizium

1823 days ago by Tom8021 | 6 comments »

To make it so you can adjust the tension on the blade I took a 12” threaded screw and put it through oversize holes in the back end of the arms. I put a nut on the bottom and a adjustable knob on the top. The other end was a bit harder to figure out. I kept browsing over all of the fasteners at Home Depot, thinking there has to be a way to make a solid connection between the arms and the blades. Then it hit me and I think it is simple and strong. I took a threaded rod coup...

"Art Box" Tutorial #8: The Handle

1824 days ago by Andy | 8 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 At this point we should have an assembled box, with corner splines, a recess cut into the body for the lid to set down into 3/8”, and a recess for the medallion cut into the lid that is also 3/8” deep, and the medallion cut to fit.DO NOT glue in the medallion yet! Next thing is to make the handle.I like to attach the handle by cutting a mortise in both the handle and the edge of the lid and slipping in a thin strip of wood, aka a spline. The spline is a scrap...

Oak Wall/Canopy #1: The Plan

1825 days ago by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

This project is something a little different. It is a bedroom wall unit, not a murphy wall bed, but one with piers, headboard, mirrors and a light bar. The kind where the bed just sits in front of it. The twist on this one is I will be adding a canopy to it. This will be a canopy like the old waterbed style, with the mirrors in the top. I’ve built both the Accent style wall unit and the canopy in the past, but have never combined the two. I’ll start with a style that I built before an...

The Workshop: My Pursuit of a Functioning Workspace #1: Floor Plan and Tool Placement

1827 days ago by Hyperhutch | 2 comments »

Right now I am trying to turn my work room (the garage) into a well organized, flow conscious workshop. I have been focusing on turning, but my first love is furniture design and making. I finally got some more machinery, and careful planning is a necessity. Up to now I have been using movable tables (that is, 2’x2’ pieces of OSB). I pile them up with all my turning tools and accessories, and nothing has a proper place. Right now everything is strewn about haphazard, and...
