Bread Board (s) #3: Routing Foes

11-22-2010 05:49 AM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

Time to dress up that middle section and hollow it out for a drawer. the idea is to hollow out ~3/4” thickness from the bottom, leave ~2-3” shoulder on the sides and back, and trim that opening edge with a dovetail form that the drawer will slide and lock into. I started by boring most of the material off with a drill press and a forstner bit – fairly simple and fast, and went real well. Next I took an extra 1/8” bite off of the height using a 3/4” straight...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #1: Intro

11-18-2010 06:08 AM by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

To my amazement there has been a lot of inquiries into how I make my wine cork displays. These questions inspired me to create a series of blog/tutorials to help explain my process. They will probably go into far more detail than most of you “master woodworkers” care to see, but I’m hoping it will help those new to woodworking. I remember how valuable some of the more detailed tutorials where to me when I first started, and still are for that matter. The design is one ...

Book Bench #1: The Project & The Legs (profiles)

11-17-2010 07:31 PM by spunwood | 4 comments »

The Project In Mid/Late September a friend of ours mentioned to Stephanie that she was looking for something like a window seat with book shelves/storage…sans window. I jumped at the opportunity to try my hand. I had a plan by William Draper, a PA craftsman from an August 1996 edition of American Woodworker, pg. 32 (off of google). I had been really wanting to try my hand at the bench. I loved the profile, the simple style, and the chance to hone basic skills such as mortise &...

I need your help.

11-14-2010 06:39 PM by nobuckle | 9 comments »

Okay, things are coming along with the router table project. The last thing that I worked on was making the insert plate for the router. I opted to make one because I don’t have the money to spend on a manufactured one. Besides, I hade some 1/4” aluminum plate that a friend gave me which worked out really well. Here is where I need your input. I need to know if I should make the diameter of the through hole the same size as the diameter of my largest router bit, in this case ...

Workshop Upgrades #3: Ridgid 4511 router table

11-14-2010 02:47 AM by jcwalleye | 5 comments »

Once I got the fence upgraded as described in the second blog of this series it was time to get the router table built. Here are some pictures of the granite table added as a right wing to the Ridgid 4511 table saw. Glued up 2” of mdf and laminated top and bottom with leftovers from a local cabinet shop. OK, it’s only as heavy as granite. Here the laminated slab is ready for cutting dados for the mitre and t-tracks. Here are reference lines on masking tape for aligning the insert tem...

Light at the end of the tunnel

11-13-2010 04:37 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

Yes, there’s light at the end of the tunnel and it’s not a freight train. I was able to make really good progress on the router table/outfeed extension today. Here’s how it looks so far; I appologize for the quality of the picture, I had to use my phone. By adding this I now have 21” more width and an additional 9” of outfeed. You can see the rough cut out where the router will go. Having reached this point I can now start planning for the cabinet tha...

Out with the old, in with the new!

11-12-2010 04:52 AM by nobuckle | 0 comments »

Table saw tune up is something that no matter what seems to take me forever. I spent probably four hours making the various adjustments neccessary to make accurate cuts. Granted the bulk of that was removing my TS fence rail in order to reposition it a little (I only raised it 1/8”). When I originally put the fence rail on it was too low. This caused my fence to bind and it really became a pain. So off it came so I could elongate the mounting holes. I’m pleased with the resu...
