Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #15: He's Got Legs...

02-05-2010 03:50 AM by CaptainSkully | 12 comments »

Today, I bit the bullet and tried out my 45 degree lock-miter bit to make the four-sided quarter-sawn white oak 4” x 4” legs. I outsmarted myself by trimming the edges at 45 degrees. Unbeknownst to me, the router bit needs all the meat it can grab to make the “tongues”. As a result, I have very little “lock” in my lock-miter. I have just enough to register the corner, but I’ve lost about half of my glue surface. Sigh… The good news is that...

Extremely Average #30: Henry Wood Detective Agency: Monday Morning

02-01-2010 05:50 AM by Ecocandle | 7 comments »

Sunday had been relaxing. Henry spent the day finishing his dado jig for his router. He was starting to get comfortable using the router and was able to create a straight edge, then from that, square up the jig. He could hardly believe it when he put the square on each corner and they were all at 90 degrees. What a rush. After he finished the jig and photographed it for posterity he relaxed a bit and bought a new case journal. He jotted down a few of his thoughts. Jan 2, 1955...

Router Table #12: The Good the Bad and the Ugly... New Fence Arrived

01-31-2010 02:07 AM by PurpLev | 22 comments »

I saw an ad on craigslist for a Jointech 12” router fence positioner which is similar to the Incra LS positioner -has a lead screw, and has what Incra sells as add on – the “wonder fence” as the standard fence. the guy posted it as used, but at what Jointech is selling it NEW… I contacted the person trying to negotiate a win-win situation. that was 2 weeks ago. the jointech fence is still on craigslist. I just couldn’t justify his price for a fence I’...

Alternate Drawer Joinery #3: Draw sides

01-30-2010 06:32 PM by DanW | 6 comments »

Now that the drawer front is complete, it’s time to work on the sides. Trace the template onto the sides.I use a scroll saw to cut this but small band saw blade or coping saw would work. Once the sides are sawed, glue the drawers together. Once the drawers are dry, setup a plunge router with a 3/4” collar and a 1/4” drill bit. I ground the point to a very flat angle (mimic a router bit) and the side flutes slightly just for use in the router (since dowel rods are typically s...

Alternate Drawer Joinery #2: Routing the drawer front

01-30-2010 05:56 PM by DanW | 2 comments »

Now I have the following items.1. Router table with a 3/4” pattern bit installed in the router.2. Drawer front3. Drawer sides4. Router template/jig Using your template and drawer side stacked, adjust the bit height so that the cut is a 1/64” too deep (if I set it flush I end up unsatisfied with the fit) Set the template on the end of the drawer front with the best grain towards the template fence . Then center the front so that the teeth (for lack of a better term) are even,...

Alternate Drawer Joinery #1: Jig creation

01-30-2010 05:33 PM by DanW | 1 comment »

I was watching PBS one Saturday afternoon when Scott Phillips took a trip to a jig creators workshop. The show left me with the desire to create something different (at least different for me). I had been looking at some furniture in a local “Antiques” store, trying to get ideas for future projects, and had noticed a strange joint used to hold the drawers together. It looked like little half moons with pins in them & I wondered “now how did they do that?” Well,...

The making of a Telescope Eyepiece box #2: More pictures

01-30-2010 05:22 PM by Dennis Fletcher | 2 comments »

I have been busy, as of late, with actual work, going out of the shop to build, so I have been slow at getting pictures of this box uploaded. For any who are interested, here are current pictures. I need to put a finish on it, molding on it and complete the interior. (A small box that will be able to be lifted out for filters.) Last, but not least, I need to add some sort of handle on each side.

Built-in bookcases and mantel for fireplace surround in a Tudor Revival

01-28-2010 04:46 AM by Jonathan | 4 comments »

(Please note: I originally posted this earlier today as a forum topic, but then decided to put it in as a blog entry in order to keep all of my entries together. I have also added more information to this posting here.) A year ago Christmas, Santa promised my wife that he’d build built-in bookcases with doors, as well as an adjoining mantel. Well, Santa got busy over the course of that year landscaping most of the yard by laying brick pavers, constructing a couple of raised brick planter b...
