I should start showing the beginning picture of my burnings so you can see what I work off of. OK I made a mistake, I did not take a picture before I started this burning so I hope you will be able to see the before and after. Here is a couple that has asked me to burn this as a special momenta. Trying to get the right picture done as a pattern isn’t that easy and sometimes it turns out the first few times. this one took about six time of reprinting. I do go through a lot of in...
I had a little time in the shop tonight and was looking for a small project to at least start. I forget how much you can get done when the kids are asleep. I won this on ebay for under $20 a while back. Here is an “almost” before shot. Here I have the first knob done. I sanded the knobs chucked into my cordless drill. I used sandpaper, steel wool and then a cotton cloth with BLO and then wax. Paste wax first, then smeared straight hard beeswax and polished on the drill woth...
The 6th video in a series about building a Allan Little designed Ultimate work table with a multifunctional top. In this video I install the drawer runners to the work table. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5peifOXoUY&feature=share&list=PLMP5Q4_HkvdmzWZaaScIppWxyBrl8gqKP
Today’s efforts went into building the router table insert onto which the router will be mounted. I laminated a piece of Luan to the 1/2 inch plywood to make it look nice. The underside of the plywood has been routed out to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. I hope to create different throat inserts for when I have smaller work pieces. I also installed 3 lengths of 3/8 inch threaded rod with which the cabinet will be fastened to the table saw. That way I can remove it if I should wa...
(This is my first attempt on a blog entry. English is my 2. language so bear over with me on spelling errors, funny language and all that.) This is a blog describing how i made this projeckt For a long time i´ve had this idea of making a rack for my cook books in the kitchen. They are just collecting dust on the shelf and not really getting the attension they deserve. Now i do see a lot of people using “plate racks” (dont know the word in english and google translate sugg...
A while back I was given a metal craftsman benchtop router table and, while I liked it and it gave me a router table, it was dependent upon the routers’ height / depth mechanism which, on the router I was using, sucked. I decided to try to build a replacement so that I could get a router lift going and make the tabletop bigger as well as get a larger, better fence. This is the result. The stand is 16w x 16d x 12h and made out of leftover construction grade plywood. It’s kin...
I’m going to finish the top and install it before installing the drawers. It should be easier that way to get my hands inside, plus I always build the drawers last just in case my ideal measurements were not met. This wooden piece matches the profile of the edge on the table saw, allowing me to use the rip fence further away from the blade and also use the rip fence to hold my router fence. The piece will be attached on the edge of the router table top. Here is a better view of t...
This is a real-time blog, that is I am blogging as I am working on the project. As it is my own design I respectfully request that anyone wishing to copy it waits until I have posted the finished project. I’ve made this design using part of the Fibonacci series of numbers; that is specifically 1,2,3,5,8, as proportions for the parts of this mosaic box. It’s going to be an EZ Mitre box so here is the plan for the initial board Starting at 1 for the diameter of the centra...
Working out the fence design. It is not unusual for me to put in more than two hours of drive time on certain work days. This allows me considerable time to contemplate upcoming steps while building a project. Since creating the fence for my new router table has been rapidly approaching, I have been thinking of combining two router table fence designs seen in separate issues of Fine Woodworking magazine. If you have been following my progress, you most likely have already seen this imag...
Having recalculated my cuts for this cabinet, I have enough to the entire cabinet, plus the 3 drawers. It will measure about 16×16 inches by 34 inches high. The router table top will be 20×16 inches. I’ll be making a router fence to clamp onto my table saw rip fence. I scored a few pieces of wood that I can use to make the combined unit mobile. I wish I had made this one first since a lot of the cuts were made with a handheld circular saw. I’m going to need to buy ...
