The Holtzapffel Project #8: The end vise

07-04-2008 07:42 PM by kem | 7 comments »

Happy Independence Day! I’m looking forward to the three day weekend to put the finishing touches on my workbench: adding the twin-screw face vise and a shelf underneath. Since the last time, I flattened the top and applied some Danish oil to the bench. I also installed the end vise and have really enjoyed using it. Here’s a look at the bench while planing the chop for the end vise. You can also see the slotted tool rack in the upper right from a design in woodworking ma...

Making a Sign

07-03-2008 07:23 PM by Woodshopfreak | 7 comments »

I decided to make a sign for my grampa’s shop since we are going down to there house this weekend for 4th of July. I had already made one for my shop but I decided to make another because the first one was really easy and fun. Here is how it goes. You start out with your stock, whether it is edge joined or solid doesn’t really matter, and you want it to be of sufficient size, large enough to put the words that you want on it After that it’s time to route a Roman Ogee o...

so my router table project has come to an end. i got my shipment from Lee Valley today and i am happy to say that everything is completed. first upon getting the 2’ T-track i cut it in half with a jigsaw and a metal cutting blade. then i epoxied the track into place. i used a board of mdf to distribute pressure and my two former table saw wings which are probably around 20 pounds each on top. then i just drilled for and installed the t bolts and put on the knobs. and when the fen...

My first attempt at restoring.

07-01-2008 05:25 AM by irishhandyman | 5 comments »

After spilling coffee on this I desided it was time to attempt to refinish this piece of furniture.It was brought to this house in a covered wagon around 1920. It’s a shame it can’t talk because it has seen a lot of history.Now I cant take credit for all the stains that has befallen it. I have to admit I had my fair shareof mishaps, but not all. I’ll leave that for other family members. I could tell from what little of the grain that was able to be seen, that it was oak....

Shop Updates #5: Router Table - Dust Collection

07-01-2008 02:14 AM by teenagewoodworker | 10 comments »

to make my routing work environment more enjoyable i added a few different dust collection systems to my router table. as well as showing the fence that i made for it. first I’ll start off with the fence. it has a 2” opening that goes up high about 3 1/2” to allow for higher bits. so the fence is about 6 inches high for maximum support. and about 2 inches longer than the router table on both sides for maximum work piece support on both the infeed and outfeed sides. so here i...

Greene inspired Night Stand #17: Glue up + fitting and hanging doors

06-30-2008 12:58 AM by ChicoWoodnut | 13 comments »

In my last entry I mortised Brusso knife hinges into the case. The next step is glueing up the case and then fitting/hanging the doors. Here are a few photos of that process. First I cleaned off the bench and layed the back and two sides out in sequence. The sides were already glued up in my last entry. The back has a center stile so it needed to be glued in place. That is why the back is dissasembled. Glue on the back stile tenons, rail tenons and left side mortise. Push ...

Shop Updates #4: Router Table #3 (with video)

06-29-2008 08:01 PM by teenagewoodworker | 20 comments »

alright so now everything except for the fence is put together and it is looking awesome. i added the apron and plugged all my holes with birch plugs just for the looks and i put on a coat of poly just to make the birch plugs turn brown because they are end grain so it looks cool, no other reason. i am planning on making the fence and also some form of dust collection and some storage for router bits and a couple other things. maybe even put some French cleats there. so here is a video...
