Some Thoughts on Box Hinges

06-16-2011 08:32 PM by RogerBean | 14 comments »

Box hinges are always a problem. Hingeing is the nemesis of all box makers. We all get a little twinge when it comes time to fit the hinges. We generally have a lot of work invested by the time we get to the hinges, and a slip here can make a real mess of many hours work. And, I am no different. When it’s possible to spend $100 on hinges and a lock for a single box, picking the right ones for your box project is worth a little time. Perhaps this will help a little for anyone str...

Heres a quick video showing the build process… Enjoy! Its been a great project and I hope to soon post another video showing it in all of it glory.

Table saw island #7: The sliding flip up out feed extension table

07-08-2010 06:08 PM by 559dustdesigns | 9 comments »

I have been looking forward to this part of the table saw island for a long time. In fact its been in process for a month or so, but I have had the idea to build one for years. I need to have out feed support on the table saw when ever cutting large sheet goods or long lumber. However I don’t always need the extra table taking up space and I don’t always need the support in the same position on the back of the bench. So here is my first sliding flip up out feed extension table, bu...

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...

Using a router to make the "Lazy Larry" #1: Making the "Lazy Larry" using a router and router jig.

06-19-2009 02:14 AM by Ampeater | 8 comments »

Degoose showed us how to make the jig that uses a bandsaw to make the spiral sections of his “Lazy Larry”. Well I made the jig, but my old small bandsaw just wasn’t up to the task. I wasn’t about to quit, so I decided to try to make a jig that I could use with my router. It took me awhile to figure it out (using Sketchup), but once I did, it was rather easy to make the jig. Here is how to make the jig. Picture 1. 1. Cut a 3/4” thick piece of MDF ...

Sharpening Router Bits

08-05-2010 08:31 PM by Karson | 19 comments »

Since the router bits are now clean, I might as well sharpen them. Yesterday I showed you how I clean saw blades, router bits and clean up the belt sander belts. Since I’ve got the router bits clean and I was ready to put them away I figured I might as well sharpen them. I use 3 in 1 oil with the sharpening tools on my router bits. I use Eze-lap diamond paddles for sharpening. Here is a place that carries them. They come individually, sets of three and sets of ...

Evolution of my router planer #4: Version 1.2a

10-21-2010 06:01 PM by TZH | 4 comments »

Version 1.2a At this point I decided to get more “radical” in my design approach. I removed two of the cross rails (found out through experience that I didn’t need them anyway). Then I took the corner poles out of the flanges and put a “sleeve” on the side of my table for the corner poles to slide into (see photo below). Electrical conduit clamps work great for attaching the sleeves. This design also allowed me to adjust the height of the router sled in...

Walnut Slab Coffee Table #1: Flattening slab with router sled

01-01-2012 07:14 PM by Lumber2Sawdust | 5 comments »

I started a post about a wood gloat about a month ago. I found some nice walnut slabs at a sawmill for some projects. The first one up is a coffee table. I thought I would start a blog about the process of preparing the slab. I may follow this with more about adding a base to the table as it progresses. I’ve done a fair number of projects in the past, but nothing involving a big slab like this. I have been excited about getting this project started, but Christmas was approaching...
