Gift Projects #2: Making Cutting Boards Out Of a Single Peice of Solid Wood

05-17-2018 06:05 PM by ScottBelleri | 0 comments »

I made these paddle-style cutting boards out of solid 6/4” maple. This is thick enough that they shouldn’t warp, and they can be sanded down a number of times. It is called a paddle-style cutting board because its handle makes it look a bit like a paddle. The handle makes it easy to carry and hang, and also gives it a unique character. Sugar maple is an ideal wood for cutting boards because it is hard, but not so hard that it will dull your knives. Really, the only import...

Heavy Woodworkers Bench #1: Idea for a low cost work bench solution

03-14-2017 04:30 PM by Questtut | 0 comments »

I had been tossing around the thought this I want a better work bench. The problem is, I don’t have much money or time to build one. As a commercial truck driver by trade, I’m only home for a little more than 1 day per week, and much of that time is taken up caring for my kids, house and volunteering in the Scouting Organization. But, like every other wood working enthusiast, I know I need to just make some time to do what I love doing. So on each weekend that I have even just ...

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leave upright. My Tryton router had it builti...

Shaker Candlestands #2: Making the prototype

09-14-2016 02:30 AM by Phil | 0 comments »

The next step in make my Shaker candlestands was to figure out how to hold the spindles/posts to cut the dovetail mortises for the legs. After turning it over in my head for a couple of weeks, watching some videos on youTube (include 3 different New Yankee Workshop episodes where Norm makes pedestal tables), and trying a few options, I finally decided to make a fixture to hold & index the post at 120° and use a router to cut the mortises [1]. Here’s the fixture: The post...

Stand Up Jewelry Box #6: Ring Tray and Smaller boxes

01-20-2018 02:26 AM by cowboyup3371 | 2 comments »

I have repeatedly said one of the best things of this project is that my eldest daughter and I are spending time together working on it. Unfortunately the extreme cold weather we are having has done a number on her health causing pain in her chest and overall discomfort. As such, she is unable to work in our shop for very long which has created a major damper on that time. So today, I took her out to Wright Patterson Air Force Base’s wood shop so we could build her portion of the pro...

Crib #2: Building Curves

01-23-2018 11:49 PM by RenB | 4 comments »

Looking at my Sketchup model the thing I think would be the biggest problem is the arches on the back board. There are 2 curved boards, one curved molding and one Laminated board. I figure this is the best place to get started. The first thing I did was find the radius of the arch that I wanted to create. To do this I found an online calculator and put in the width and height of the arch segment I had. I came up with a 68.25” radius. Next I got some MDF to use as a template. ...

Bath Stool #4: How to...

04-10-2018 12:51 PM by Diego Cassels | 5 comments »

Well there is not one way to do things, so here we go with the thinking HOW to do it! I´ve decided that the legs should have a 12° angled slope, so I have to figure out how to make the mortise under the seat with a 12° incline. Any ideas, sugestions are very welcome. I’ve also decided to create a saddle look to the seat, so I rememberd that a lumberjock “woodshaver Tony C” had suggested me to look at his way of doing it, jig to cut saddles in the stool seat’s I like...

Composer's Desk #1: Composer's Desk - blogging the project

03-07-2018 09:36 PM by nickbatz | 0 comments »

I was having these made by a shop out of solid oak or maple for over a decade, and all along I wanted to develop an affordable version. Then – spurred on by someone actually offering money :) – I figured it out: make it myself, and use nice oak plywood and high-quality Douglass fir dimensional lumber instead of solid oak that brings the materials cost up to about as much as this whole thing sold for! Based on posting pics on Facebook, I now I have two more “commissions...
