Updated 1/16/12 This is where you need to decide how you want to open your box. I mentioned at the outset about some of the different boxes I have made and how they hinge differently from one another. All are good, but you may have a preference in style or it may be your ability that decides for you. The pin hinge is what we will mainly be focusing on and was used on this box. Chapter 10 will discuss this style. The Deco box uses a standard brass butt hinge with a stop stra...
INTRODUCTION.. When I started experimenting with using my router for inlays I thought only in the context of straight lines since that was what routers did best. Unfortunately my tastes in designs included Celtic Art especially Knot-work which is mostly curves. These would obviously need some sort of template to guide the router. A cursory inspection of a typical Celtic Knot suggests that they are too complex for a simple template. However a closer examination and study convinced me that s...
I spent a lot of time looking on the internet for a Jig or fixture to use to install a set of quadrant hinges. The quadrant hinge is a complicated-looking L-shaped hinge that is use in the jewelry boxes that I make. It helps to remember that a quadrant hinge is simply a butt hinge with integral lid stay or stop.The arms of the hinge extend along the sides of the lid and base of the box and the internal stop bar extends from and recesses into a mortise in the box wall and lid. The jewelry box ...
What a week for new experiences and big projects. While my nights were spent toiling on the Thorsen Table… and trying new things, the day job had me wrapping my mind around several new things as well. The last basement dad and I refinished (sub contracting for Owens Corning) included perhaps the pinnacle of woodworking projects – redoing the stairs. Ripping off the 2×8 treads and replacing those with oak, adding oak risers, newel post, railing and 52 spindles. T...
I needed a jig to make a lazy susan, my blog is at;http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/Grumpy/blog/6612This jig was not my design but came from an article in a magazine. It is fairly simple & I thought it might be worth sharing.There are 3 wooden components & a handful of metal bits. A 1/4”X6” disc can be stuck to the item you want to shape or a 1/4 pin can be screwed into a hole in the centre of the item as in the above photo.A 4 1/2”X 1/2” piece of desired length...
Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options In the Weekend Wall Shelf episode, I showed you how to use a parallel jig to create dados. But the jig was originally created for making coves at the tablesaw. So here’s a special jig made specifically for the purpose of creating dados with your router. The best part is, you can get exact-width dados EVERY TIME! This jig was developed and demonstrated in the current Guild Build as part of the Wall-Hanging Cabi...
This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...
I’ll be covering the construction of two different kinds of curved doors. A pair of raised panel doors with one inch thick styles and rails and a 3/4 thick panel. With an outside radius of 20” and an inside radius of 19”. The second is a single six divided light glass door. Its style and rails are also 1” thick, its outside radius is 12 1/4” and the inside 11 1/4”. Lets start with making the jigs to mill the radius styles for each set of doors. The star...
