Making The Very Small Wood Hinge III

07-09-2017 04:26 PM by Dan | 6 comments »

Latest refinements on my small hinge making process. First, an upgrade on my router sled which allows better control and smoother sliding with excellent accuracy. That Ridgid router in the picture is still going strong after years of heavy use. Set up to plane maple hinge halves to 1/8”. I want to cut down the time it takes to make these so I need to develop standard procedures with detail. So, after planing they are cut to identical lengths and widths. When I am trimming thes...

Table Saw Station #4: Casters and Base

07-08-2017 06:55 PM by Brazz04 | 2 comments »

I got some time to finish up the casters and base over the last few days. The base is now complete so when the station is lowered, it sits on a very solid base. The casters are mounted to three laminated sheets of plywood, and raised using a 5” bolt that was threaded into the plywood. The bolt then pushes on a wooden rod that extends the caster down on the floor. It seems to work well and only takes a few minutes to raise the station, move it to a new location, and lower back onto t...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #13: Final Table Edge Routing

05-29-2017 10:55 PM by TungOil | 3 comments »

With the table edges assembled, the next step is the final pattern routing of the outside profile. I route the final shape after the edges are assembled to be sure the ellipse is smooth and continuous. I start by leveling any minor misalignment between the edges with an 80 grit disk on the random orbit sander. The assembled table top is about 1/16” larger than the outside pattern to allow for the final shaping. I use a solid carbide spiral upcut bit to get the smoothest finis...

Table Saw Station #1: Framing

05-16-2017 01:48 AM by Brazz04 | 0 comments »

I have been planning a table saw station to combine my saw, router, and a downdraft table into one area in my garage workshop. After a lot of planning on SketchUp, I finally got around to building it. First I started by framing the station up from the plans I had come up with. Once completed, I will add dust collection as well as electrical for each area of the station. The casters are under the table now but I have plans to make a caster system that will let me raise and lower the statio...

Mongo: my first real workbench #8: Joinery: working out the legs

05-10-2017 02:58 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 2 comments »

Mongo’s legs are by far the most complex pieces, except perhaps the vices. They are responsible, obviously, for holding up the table surface but also for tying in the aprons and supporting the lower shelf. Clearances have to be made for the outermost ribs and bonus: there are no 90° cuts! Yay! But this is why I made the gauge in update 6 and it was used extensively. First step was to establish the top of the tenon at the correct angle. This is a through cut but I don’t have ...

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #10: Gluing Up and Pattern Routing the Table Halves

05-01-2017 01:20 AM by TungOil | 6 comments »

With my four leaves glued up it is time to move to the elliptical table halves. Each half consists of seven boards and is 35” wide. With so many glue joints to align I break the glue up into two parts. First I glue up four boards, and after that assembly is dry I add the remaining three adjacent boards to complete one half of the table top. A little cleanup with a belt sander levels the glue joints, then I switch to the ROS with an 80 grit disk to clean up the belt sande...
