A Tale of 3 Routers

01-08-2010 04:04 PM by David Craig | 13 comments »

Today is payday and I have put off new tool purchases over the holidays so that there was room in the budget for a decent Christmas for the kids and so dad is going to pick up a router, one he probably should have picked up in the first place :) Two years ago, a friend takes me to Harbor Freight and I see a 1 3/4 HP plunge router ON SALE (took me a bit to realize that these things are ALWAYS on sale) for about 40 dollars. Impulse buy later and I am playing around with the router down the ...

Woodworking Knowledge #2: Ever Wonder How To...

04-24-2008 12:39 PM by flink | 3 comments »

Many excellent woodworking videos. I stumbled on this link for this site on Reddit.com, from a posted link on creating a solar furnace from coke cans (that garage gets cold in the winter). Once I found the tool stuff, this is the first video that caught my eye: Cutting Inlayed Dovetails using the Leigh D4, by Al Navas I have a D4, but haven’t tried doing anything fancy yet, but maybe at lunchtime…. The tutorial is three videos. I also noticed David Marks and Wood Wh...

Thorsen House Cabinet #10: First cabinet door...."J'adore/j'ai a door"

04-03-2015 10:36 AM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Apologies for mangling French irretrievably there just to force out a pun…. The doors presented a few logistical challenges. Surprisingly, the internal rebate angles were the least of these. The largest challenge was in the form of how best to clamp the main outer frame whilst gluing. The frame comprises morticed hinge and lock stiles with two tenoned upper/lower rails. (the mortice and tenon sizes increased in height which the drawing does not indicate) Prior to any shapin...

Toy Trucks Build #3: Engine Compartment Milling

02-18-2014 05:29 AM by HerbC | 3 comments »

I managed to squeeze in a little shop time today and began by using my Craftsman 113 series contractor table saw to rip a piece of sycamore to rough width and resawed it rough thickness for the engine compartment pieces. As you can see in this photo, I’m using a 2×4 and a couple of clamps as a rip fence. What can I say, I got the saw for $35… I used my planer to mill the piece of sycamore to the final width and thickness. No pictures of that process today. Next I u...

Building the shop #4: As the garage turns (into a woodshop!)

12-20-2011 07:46 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 7 comments »

Over the weekend I made a lot of progress on the shop clearing out two more steel shelving units, leaving only one to clear out and move out. As part of the continued purging, I decided to dismantle my second Shopsmith, give away the bench (I love FREE signs on stuff – it’s how I get rid of SO much stuff!!!) from the Shopsmith. I am keeping my first Shopsmith, for now, but as I acquire more tools I begin to think that the 6 foot long by 30” wide machine is a huge space drain...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #3: Legs and Grill Work

10-21-2015 02:43 AM by JimYoung | 3 comments »

We’ll it’s been a while since I updated my desk build blog. I had 40 mortises to square up on the legs, so I’ve taken the “15 minute” approach to this build. Whenever I had a little spare time I would knock out another mortise. With all of the mortises done, it was on to the tenons. I bought a Rockler heavy duty tenon jigs a while back, and tried it once with mixed results. Prior to that I have been using a home made jig for my router that holds pieces flat...

Commisions #7: pull out trash box #2

07-14-2008 08:37 PM by teenagewoodworker | 16 comments »

hey everyone, over the last couple of days i have been able to get a lot done in terms of milling up the lumber and gluing up panels. i chose sycamore for the trash box because it is a hard wood as opposed to the pine that i was going to use before. there was a sale at the lumberyard on sycamore and it was less per bf than a select 1 board of pine. so the purchase made sense. first i got my lumber and let it sit for awhile and then milled it up. the first picture is of a rough board and ...
