"Art Box" Tutorial #12: Shaping

08-11-2009 01:55 PM 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...

"Art Box" Tutorial #5: Cut the lip for the lid

06-27-2009 07:23 PM by Andy | 11 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 At this point we have a box body with corner splines.Our lid is still oversized, so we can stop here and just use it to make a traditional box,one where the lid sets on top.DO NOT CUT THE LID TO SIZE UNTIL YOU ARE SURE OF THE STYLE OF BOX YOU WANT TO MAKE! For some, this may be the best option. They may not have all the required tools or may feel their skills need a little more honing.Or, you could leapfrog over the next few stages and pick up the project again when we d...

"Art Box" Tutorial #7: The Medallion

07-01-2009 06:32 PM by Andy | 23 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 Now we need to cut a recess in the lid for the medallion to set down into.DONT cut your medallion until you have routed out the home for it.I typically make the medallion about 1” to 1.5” smaller on all sides than the lid depending on the box size and the piece of wood I have for the medallion. We are now going to make a simple jig for a router to set on and run back and forth making several passes of incrementally deeper cuts. There are a several ways to do ...

Marshmallow Catapult

04-15-2011 12:43 PM by Lockwatcher | 7 comments »

When I pulled this off of my cabinet, I did not expect so many would like to build these. Well, I took one apart so that we could make some notes – and then detail construction. Below: The marshmallow catapult in it’s finished form. As you can see below, the catapult concists of only 6 wooden parts & some miscellaneous hardware, all easy to build with handtools if need be. When we did this project with the scouts, we put it together as a kit that they could sand &#...

Combo Drum Sander #1: Concept and making the drum

02-20-2011 06:48 AM by tyka | 11 comments »

This is my first blog and I hope it will go over well. This sander was inspired by models on the Internet but mostly by Blake: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/7641 and by Bob: http://lumberjocks.com/Bob3418/blog. I would like to thank them both for their posts. Without them this project would have been very difficult to complete. Concept: My intentions are to make a 20” +/- wide drum sander that will easily switch from thickness to surface sanding. I would like to be able to reduce stoc...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #3: Cutting Spline Slots

05-18-2012 11:40 AM by Boxguy | 16 comments »

Boxguy’s Spline Slot Cutting Jig Want to add corner splines like this?,, You need a jig like this!..This hard working (and dusty) jig is used on almost every box I make, and is quick and simple to build. It has a wide plywood board for a base, a long “trough” supported by 45 degree triangles cut from a 2X6 and a handle so you can pull it back to you. (I just made the handle out of a forking branch.) The long trough lets me use this for boxes that are large or smal...

Circular trays with Dished centers on the Router #1: Getting started

Hello Fellow Lumberjocks! Welcome to my very first attempt at a blog. Let me open this discussion by letting you know that I am a self taught carpenter, with a humble collection of tools and a humble little workshop. I truly enjoy the Lumberjock community because we are all made to feel as an equal participant of the group, regardless of our individual skill levels. An important part of my growth in the wood art is to work hard at improving my skills and learn valuable new techniques ...

Workbench #1: Design Plans

06-11-2011 03:05 PM by CartersWhittling | 9 comments »

Hello. These are the plans I have for a new workbench. I think I have decided that now is the time to build a bench I won’t need to remake. I have done lots of studing on workbench designs and could not decide between the German bench and the Roubo because of the leg vise. I had some thoughts in mind to making a double sided bench and incorporating both bench designs. I soon came across the Edwards bench. http://woodtreks.com/design-build-traditional-woodworking-workbench-tail-shoulder-...
