Nightstand for CPAP Machine #1: Sketchup Model

10-15-2011 04:13 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 3 comments »

I have a CPAP machine for OSA and my nightstand doesn’t have enough room for the machine and a clock. The CPAP has to be lower than the top of the mattress for safety reasons. I also got one of those memory foam mattress pads and now my nightstand is way too low. My current nightstand has two drawers which I like. So what I want is:- Nightstand as tall as the bed- Shelf for CPAP machine- Hole in side of stand for CPAP hose- Two drawers- Back behind drawers,but no back behind CPAP (ma...

Sam Maloof inspired rocking chair #2: First try at the Maloof joint **Project on hold pending move**

10-14-2011 12:57 AM by sandhill | 2 comments »

Not having done this before it was a bit of a challenge to do I hope the joint is tight enough after the glue is in the joints and its clamped up. This is just the dry fit for now.In the two photos below are the left and right front legs. Today my 1/4” down cut spiral bit came so I will be routing the holes for the back slats then next week when my new band saw blade gets here I will cut the seat profile, sand and scoop the seat then comes the front legs.One thing I realized is you ...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #4: Cutting the Pins

10-11-2011 09:38 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

In the last blog, I completed the tails for the project (after a few mistakes). The next steps are a lot faster and less error prone. Line up to the A cuts and then first step in cutting the tails is to set the stop block so it just barely misses the bit. Making sure to keep you fence mark side aligned against fence (easy to forget for this step), cut one full set of pins, advancing to each A cut. Then check the fit. As you can see, I am shallow by 1/16”. So I ne...

Toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane #4: Shape the body

10-11-2011 04:49 AM by RandyMorter | 0 comments »

The final shaping of the body is done using a band saw, router, and sander. First I laid out the taper of the sides. Either way the cuts are done means that the flat surfaces will be reduced after one cut or the other, and it will also be harder to lay out the cuts because the lines need to be drawn on non-flat surfaces. I decided to cut the side tapers first thinking I could use double sided tape to re-attach one cut out to help preserve a good flat surface. I didn’t end up followin...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #3: Cutting double dovetails and making a few mistakes

10-10-2011 05:29 PM by SPHinTampa | 3 comments »

At the end of the last blog, I had glued up the trim to the tail sections of the R/L pieces: I used my oscillating belt sander to sand the ends flush Flush ends give me a flat surface for the next step In my previous blog, I mentioned that you need a zero clearance insert to avoid having the bit pull the workpiece down. I forgot to mention the need to ensure that you hold the workpiece against the fence, particularly when you pull the sled back thru the bit (the climb cu...

Workbench #9: Making Wooden Screws

10-08-2011 02:33 AM by CartersWhittling | 57 comments »

Hello. This is a video showing the process I go through to make wooden screws. I briefly try to explain how it is set up and show the jig making the screw. I will soon have a video on making wooden nuts aswell. I will eventually make a video showing how to make the tap and screw making jig and explain how to create the size of screw you want. I’m sure there are many other ways to make nuts and screws but this is how I do it and it works fairly well, the main downside being that I can ge...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #2: Cutting the side joints

10-07-2011 04:07 PM by SPHinTampa | 3 comments »

First step of a double dovetail is to cut a through dovetail on each side piece and then attach a trim piece. This blog entry will cover that process. So starting with the end pieces and a 6” piece of trim stock (same width as the side piece, thickness doesn’t matter). Install the two template strips into the positioning system (1 dovetail strip and 1 double dovetail strip). The dovetail strip consists of an A side which lets you cut pins at 7/8” intervals and ...

Cheap Kitchen Table #3: Improved leg design

10-01-2011 11:26 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 2 comments »

You spoke and I listened. We made corner blocks for the legs so that they should be plenty strong enough. Here’s a picture with the corner blocks installed into the bottom and top horizontals. These were the most difficult and dangerous thing we’ve ever made in the workshop. They took dangerous cuts on the miter saw and table saw. We will never do them again and will make a jig next time to be safer. Here’s what the side verticals looks like next to the horizon...
