12-17-2011 10:06 AM by Nighthawk | 1 comment »

Take two speaker boxes that are worse for wear, and kind of water logged. Then say, “heck they aren’t exactly cheap speakers either. ummmmmmm” Mission speakers. Remove guts of both speakers. Put in plasted container and seal. Turn round and now say… “ummm now what?... followed by a gulp, ”...and he wants two… hmmmm “ Okay we first made a router jig so we can do some nice daedo to fit the speakers into and then finish the cross cut tab...

Wanted HSS Router Bits and HSS 3 Wing Cutters.

12-17-2011 06:27 AM by FredRoman | 0 comments »

Hello All, I am in desperate need for HSS 3 wing cutters in multiple profiles and HSS router bits. I usually buy as many as I can find, due to custom grinding. I know I can find some on ebay, but I am trying to see if anyone had a set or 2 or 3 to sell. Thanks Fred P.S. Contact me at periodcraftsmen@gmail.com

Having the right tools

12-13-2011 08:05 PM by Nighthawk | 11 comments »

Those few of you that follow my mere attempts to be a wood worker will know I have fun doing it no matter how the project turns out. Whether it works out great or an failed attempt. Or whether it is a biggish project like the coffin or a small one like the cribbage board. Having the right tools for the job can make things so much easier, yes I will agree with that statement. However as we all know you don’t always have the right tool or all the tools you require or want to have in yo...

Routed Sign Making #1: Routed 'Sign Making Class'

12-13-2011 04:51 AM by 3DBMe | 13 comments »

We’re going to use a Dremel router to make a sign with recessed lettering. I suggest barnwood because of the contrast between the weathered surface texture and ‘fresh cut’ letters. I also have enhanced the letters by burning (pyrography) the edges of the letters for increased readability. Of course you can scale up to larger routers if you chose. Stock: Barnwood 2”x10”x24” Suggested material and dimensions Safety: Goggles, F...

Veneered Sofa Table #8: Making the top

12-13-2011 01:52 AM by SPHinTampa | 0 comments »

Have completed my experimentation with finishing, it is time to finalize the table top. I cut the frame pieces for the table top from the same stock I used for the legs and sides. This turned out to make the table top glue up a little more complicated because I ended trying to place a 3/4” panel in a frame made of 15/16” thick stock. Note that I cut the long members a little wider than the short members so that I can trim them for a final fit around the panel (I will expl...

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...
