How to Make Picture Frames with Wood Inlay

12-02-2010 11:27 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

The Problem…If you want quality wood inlay …where will you get it? What designs will you get? How much will you pay for it?The Solution…We use our woodworking skills and make our own wood inlay in the shop. (We will make our own picture frame moulding too!) As you seen in previous postings we have been busy creating bandings of shop made wood inlay. There are a variety of wood inlay designs now available for our use at this time. So now we are in the process of creating p...

Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #12: The saw has a new home / I hate jigsaws / Why I'm not an electrician...

11-30-2010 08:00 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 13 comments »

Well guys, after spending the days before and after Thanksgiving sick with a stomach bug, I decided I was going to get something done before going back to work Monday. So, after getting my strength back, I decided to go out to the shop and put the saw base together. Last weekend a buddy of mine came over to play the part of outfeed table and we progressed to get the pieces cut for the base of the saw. All in all, it’s a pretty simple box with a hole cut in the top so that sawdust can...

The Basement #7: New Incra Router Table

11-27-2010 12:09 AM by JL7 | 5 comments »

I finally got the materials together to build a decent router table. I have had the Incra Ultra Jig around for awhile now, and have used it on some of my previous router tables, but my homemade tops were always off just a little. Always seem to have trouble getting the router plates to sit just right in the opening, etc. This time I bit the bullet and bought Woodpeckers 27×43 offset table along with the PRL V2 lift (very sweet!). I acquired the extruded aluminum pieces from some di...

The New Workbench #1: Description of Bench

11-26-2010 07:42 PM by therookie | 6 comments »

So I started getting into woodworking and bought a hand plane. So as soon as I got home I wanted to use it, so I put a peice of wood in my vise and started planeing. Five minutes later, my bench was four feet farther forward than it originally started. So I moved it back and kept going. Well I have done that for the past year and a half, and have decided enough is enough. So while I was in school I designed a Work Bench. Here are the specs on the bench:1. The bench is four feet deep, six feet...

Making a Violin #4: Cutting the 4mm edge to size

11-22-2010 07:26 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

The wood shaped to the line. If you check back a few posts there were two lines. My ‘final’ line is what you see remaining. Here’s a jig I made to cut the edges to size. Does anyone see what ‘the problem’ is in this picture? Think hard… It’s a 1hp Craftsman router with a 3/8” straight bit. I call it a ‘face off’ bit, but I could be wrong? The jig part is the device holding the router steady. It’s 1/8” alu...

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 &...
