Small Secretary With Tambour Door #6: Turned Legs and Base Joinery

02-01-2015 05:50 AM by Guy Dunlap | 1 comment »

I start out with some 12/4 walnut, and cut 4 legs, making sure I use rift sawn lumber. Using a turning that I made for a template, I turn all 4 legs. Then I start on the joinery. This is traditional mortise and tenon joinery throughout, and I show an easy way to get nice tight fitting tenons. The front bottom rail uses a double tenon while the top uses a dovetail to hold everything together. The most unusual thing in this video is that there a shot where you can almost see me smile! Almost…. ...

Making of a 30" wolf head #1: Part 2

01-31-2015 11:11 PM by grosa | 0 comments »

Hello again.If you watched the video on the inverted pin router you get the idea on how it works. We have 2 pin routers at the shop, one is mine and the other belongs to the company. They are both model 36210 routers. The model 36210 has a 3 phz 10 hp motor with a 36” capacity from arm base to the pin. The collet sizes this machine will accept are: 1/4”, 3/8”, 1/2”, 5/8” and 3/4”. One of the router tables has an extension on either side of the machine for l...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #5: Architectural Details and Inlaid Top

01-25-2015 05:49 AM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

First I work on making the “pillars” for the architectural details in the front of the hutch. Then I carve the “foundations” for the pillars with a chisel. I cut the top to size, and using the router table, I form the decorative edge. Again, I use a router to cut the groove for the inlay, glue the inlay in, flush them to the surface as with the drawers and attach the top. I also show how I fix a pretty big mistake when I was cutting the inlay. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...

Dave's Workshop #9: My Multipurpose Router Station

01-21-2015 05:57 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

When I built the router table as an extension of my table saw I had in mind using it as more than a router station. For starters it allows me to make wider rips on my table saw, but it does a few more things and I’m not done yet. [Above and below] Like others of its brethren, my router station can be used with or without the fence. I have a vacuum port set in the fence as well as one for the cabinet depending on which one I think will work best. [Below] The router is mount...

Making of a 30" wolf head

01-18-2015 05:11 PM by grosa | 1 comment »

Hello guys,On my posts I show large scale work and I mention templates to cut cutting templates to cut on a pin router. I realize some of you might not know what all that means so, I decided to do this blog to show you what has to happen to create a large scale wall art. It would be nice to just cut it out on the scroll saw but I am limited to 26” on my RBI. You all know what that’s like. So I draw the piece full scale and make changes as I go. You can see this in picture 1 where ...

G&G Blanket Chest Build #7: Base part I

01-17-2015 04:20 PM by Ottacat | 0 comments »

A False Start When I went to the lumber store to buy the 5/4 wood for the top and base I made the mistake of not bringing the plans or dimensions. I ended up making my best guess. When I got home and laid everything out I realized that had bought only enough that I had no margin for error. The base is 3” high and I had so little wood that I needed to be able to get all four parts of the base from a single board. My widest board was only about 6 1/4” wide. I hoped that after ...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #4: Figured Drawer Fronts With Inlay

01-17-2015 05:25 AM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

In this video, I start by selecting some beautiful figured crotch walnut for the drawer fronts. I resaw the board and then bookmatch the pieces so the “flame” of the figure radiates out from the center of the drawers. I also spend some time cutting and installing inlay in the drawer fronts, build the 6 drawers and then fit them to the openings. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! http://youtu.be/qRlSB-sJtyo
