Carving Using A Scroll Saw Pattern #1: The Simple Steps and a Free Pattern for You!

656 days ago by Keith Fenton | 12 comments »

Sheila (Landry) and I have been working to expand our business into new directions and in trying to appeal to a broader audience. One of our recent ideas was to make a simple carving from a scroll saw pattern in the hopes that we might interest some carvers or even people that may have an interest in carving, but not in scroll sawing. All you need to do this is plywood, varnish, paint (dark brown or black would be best), a brush, Dremel with a few bits (or any similar rotary tool) and orbi...

New Woodshop Construction #6: Hacking the Delta 50-875 Air Cleaner

2316 days ago by Patrick Jaromin | 12 comments »

(This post is based on a LumberJocks.com forum thread.) After completing my dust collection system installation, I turned to my air cleaner, the Delta 50-875. I had decided to install it just above my table saw—about 2/3rd’s of the way along the wall, where the intake would be in line with the front door and the outfeed inline with the ceiling mounted vent fan. After reading “Woodshop Dust Control” this seemed like the ideal placement and this location had the added be...

Planning the Makeover #3: SketchUp Plans - Miter Saw & Router Mobile Workstation

1602 days ago by Jeison | 5 comments »

I had some fun with this one, it still needs a bit of tweaking, need to add some details and adjust some dimensions, but I thought I’d throw it up to share until I have time to go back over it. I combined a pretty standard style Router cabinet from an issue of Wood magazine, with a Miter Saw cart from Fine Woodworking, and plopped them both onto a mobile base from another issue of Wood. The Miter Saw station has a flip up, extendable wing on the left side, and on the right side the ...

"Art Box" Tutorial #12: Shaping

1793 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...

"Art Box" Tutorial #6: The Lid

1835 days ago by Andy | 11 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 Regarding wood movement:Depending on the wood you use, where you live, and your own personal experience,y ou may want to allow more clearance.This is what works for me. I really dont allow for any movement at this stage. I know this sounds like trouble waiting to happen, but it works just fine for me. Even if we start off with a snug fit, we will still end up with a small gap around the perimeter. This is due to the final sanding and easing of the edges between lid and l...

"Art Box" Tutorial #8: The Handle

1820 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...

Lift Coffee Table #1: It starts with a plan...

2228 days ago by Greg Wurst | 8 comments »

I have a server in my basement hooked-up to the television, and a wireless keyboard and mouse I use on a coffee table when I need to access it directly. I get tired of looking at the PC bits sitting on the table and leaning-over to use them, so I’ve decided to build a lift coffee table to hide the parts and bring them closer to me when I need them. I took the following design from a book I have, but modified it for a different lifting mechanism and some general dimension changes (alon...

Building an Outdoor Shower at the Beach

1849 days ago by npcarey | 3 comments »

My next big project is to construct a new outdoor shower enclosure at the back of my mother-in-law’s beach house. The current phase is design, which I think I’ve finally finished using Sketchup. I had been struggling with Sketchup until I heard about a web site called http://www.sketchupforwoodworkers.com where there were tutorials specifically for using sketchup for woodworking. That got me hooked and within a week of starting Sketchup I’ve come up with a very complete m...

I am very sorry that the tutorial is still down. I lost all the pictures and just have moved on to other things. But the good news is that others have come to the rescue with their own tutorials and are just as good…even better than mine.Here is one by Scott http://lumberjocks.com/projects/58221Andy
