Working title - LLB #1: Well lookie here

11-30-2014 05:24 PM by BritBoxmaker | 8 comments »

I’m starting another box. Possible the most complex construction I’ve attempted to date. It may work, it may not. You never get anywhere new without risk. Well heres the wood for it, most if not all. The dark stuff was labelled ‘Mondo’. I don’t know what that is but it looks like a rosewood. The red is Padauk. As for a plan the initial concept is this It may change, to a lesser or greater extent, dependant on limitations of materials, skill and whet...

Moving #2: OMG!

07-05-2014 04:01 PM by BritBoxmaker | 18 comments »

It’s been four weeks since I moved my shop tools over to the new place. Other, last minute panic, items got deposited in the garage too. We finally moved in about a week ago. Today I started to re-build my shop and on entering the garage this is what I found Under there (somewhere) is my table saw, workbench and router table! The rest of the place wasn’t much better Still I cleared some of the excess away and found the bench In three parts; frame, top and ...

Random Updates #1: It's been a while, LJ's!

05-19-2014 03:57 PM by SalvageCraft | 2 comments »

It’s been quite a while since I’ve spent time on LJ’s and a very busy couple years for me. As you can see in the pic below, I’ve missed about thirty thousand posts on ‘Handplanes of your dreams’, and about twenty seven thousand posts on Stumpy’s epic monopost! In the past couple years since my last post I’ve gone through a separation, moved twice, bought a house, gotten married and now have an amazing stepdaughter the same age as my biol...

Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) #4: Cabinets and drawer boxes

12-29-2013 01:17 PM by Garry | 3 comments »

The cabinets support the work surface which is planned for a final height of 38-39” to fit me (I’m 6’3”). I left 1/4” for shimming to make sure it’s not above the table saw surface. The outside dimensions are 20”x 20” x21-3/4” tall. Plywood edges are exposed since I didn’t want to invest the time to trim them for a workbench. The drawers are designed to use the drawer bottom as the sliding surface after an idea I’ve seen her...

Begginning my Journey

08-22-2013 07:04 AM by JRunio | 2 comments »

Alright, so ive been interested in woodworking for a while. Ive made a few half assed pieces (mostly using dull tools on saw benches or the tailgate of my truck). But that was when I lived in Chicago and had no room for a shop. After more than a year of planning and job hunting we’ve finally gotten out of the city and moved to a small town in Michigan. It took about a month to get the house together and start to build out the shed. Plenty of time plan the whole thing out in my head (...

Dance on a Volcano II #1: Design and material selection

11-24-2012 04:22 PM by BritBoxmaker | 11 comments »

When I made the wall hanging, Dance on a Volcano I considered at one point making it into an EZ Mitre box. I liked the pattern so much as it was that it stayed that way. I go past it on the Stairway to Devon, every day and it always makes me think of a box alternative. So I set about designing one, using TurboCAD to 3D model it. I came up with this. My initial thoughts were to make it in solid wood, much like the original using; Sycamore, Pau Amarello, Yew, Padauk, Purpleheart and Ebon...

Tool Chest Refurb #10: Drawers need Runners...

11-24-2012 06:07 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 10 comments »

Started the day’s activity concentrating effort on the sliding shelf that will separate the till section from the undivided bottom well of the chest. Glue scraping with the #82, then a check for flat with the winding stick. One isolated area of glue residue I can’t get to. If it were tear-out, I’d have an issue. This ain’t that, but it still bugs me. So the bedrock #4C gives way to the #2. Took the glued-up, cleaned up panel over to the chest and ...
