Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #4: Making the handle and finishing the tote

12-06-2011 02:30 AM by ~Julie~ | 9 comments »

Now that we have the size of the handle piece, the actual handle has to be cut out of it.For now I keep the piece as a rectangle, and will do the angled sides after the handle is cut out. I’m using my router and a template guide to remove the area for the handle. First I need to make a template out of hardboard that is 11/32” larger than the actual size of the oval hole that I want. I determined a hole 3 1/2” long and 1 1/8” wide for the handle would be good for t...

Built in E-center, Yala #3: It is finished!

12-03-2011 03:13 PM by topcat | 3 comments »

I haven’t done one of these in a while. The build was a bit excruciating. Took 6 days, about 10-12 hrs. per day. Started on the Thurs. before Thanksgiving. That was an easy day. I just ran around getting all of the materials together and did some initial layout work and rough cut the plywood sides. These were full height and were too awkward to move around, so I used a straight edge and my new PC 8902 router to get the edges of the plywood ready for the face frames. Once the first side ...

Movie Lounge 1 #1: Star Frame

12-03-2011 05:58 AM by grosa | 1 comment »

This blog is showing how I made the star frame that covers a one-way mirror. Hope you all like it. This is how I cut out all my projects. I don’t use a CNC. I use a Scroll saw and an inverted pin router. I am cutting it out on a CR Onsrude inverted pin router model 36210. Being very careful around the tips of the stars. How the insert mates with the frame. All joints get bondo because the frame will be painted. This is how they look together. This MDF insert Is a one p...

Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #3: Finishing the inside

12-01-2011 05:31 AM by ~Julie~ | 2 comments »

Now that the sides, ends and bottom are cut I stain them, on the insides only, before putting the box of the tote together. It’s much easier to stain before glueing because trying to reach your hand inside a box and stain it is very difficult. With pine, I use flecto Varathane’s Gel Stain. It does not require any undercoating and always give me a streak-proof finish. Not all stains work well on pine but I have had great success with this. I rub it on with a piece of old t-s...

Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #13: After much delay and empty promises, it draws to an end.

11-30-2011 05:31 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 7 comments »

Well, the table saw / router workstation are finished. (At least as finished as I care to make them.) Have a look here..... There is a good bit of blood sweat and tears in that project. Actually no, more like beer, planning and a lot of good days working with my hands…. Notice that Babycake wants to demonstrate how easy the dust collection works by flipping a simple switch….. On the front of the unit, the fixed faceplates for switches (minus the one for the key...

Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #2: Cutting the side and end pieces

11-28-2011 12:36 AM by ~Julie~ | 4 comments »

In the previous post (part 1) I showed how to prepare the wood for the four totes I am making. After the wood was resawn and cut apart with the handsaw it will have a slight ridge down the middle (and often a few scratches from the saw). You can remove the ridges, if you like, with a hand plane, but it’s not necessary. The wood is put through the planer until it reaches the desired thickness, which in my case, is 1/2” 6 pieces are needed for each tote, two sides,...

Building the shop #2: The beginning...

11-27-2011 12:39 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 4 comments »

Good day fellow dusty chippers,Short entry here – thought you’d like to see what I started with in the garage – the big mess… The picture is midstream in moving stuff around to find stuff to throw away and give away. Since the beginning of the big purge, I’ve made 6 trips to Salvation Army (so far), put countless objects on the end of the driveway with FREE signs on them and furnished 1/2 of house for the new family across the street. OK, may 1/3… seriously...

Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #1: Preparing the Wood

11-25-2011 08:11 PM by ~Julie~ | 5 comments »

This series of posts will show how I made four condiment totes for a local restaurant. I’m going to show most steps from rough wood to finished product. Most of you will find this basic, but hopefully I can help some beginners see how things are put together. The restaurant wanted holders for ketchup, mustard, relish and vinegar that the waitresses or waiters could take to the table with them. (In Canada, some of us like white vinegar on our fries. On my trips to the U. S., I hav...
