Yo whats up everybody I have pretty much spent 5 hours sanding today. Usually I sand for about hour and a half and take a 30 minute break then go back out. I have already had to clean out the filter on the shop vac before I get started again and I was just asking does anybody know if the brand shop vac make bags to put in your shop vac because this thing clogges up and it takes 10 minutes to clean out the paper filter
We just got back from another great AWFS Fair in Las Vegas. If you aren’t familiar, AWFS is the Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers and its a show that occurs every other year at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This is just a quick video to give you an idea of what the show is like. Booths and product displays as far as the eye can see and lots of neat stuff to drool over. I even have some footage of the all wood sports car, “The Splinter”, as well as ...
Updated 1/16/12 I spent a lot of time developing a way to let the lid swing down into the box, yet still maintaining a fairly tight reveal on all four sidesThe difficulty is the lip itself. It doesnt allow the back of the lid to drop into the box, so thats where we need to cut it away a little deeper at the back. I call these pockets.The other difficulty is in getting the hinge placement spot on or it wont open at all or not far enough to stay open. Here is how its done: Use the same pa...
I’ve been working on this project for a while now. Everything is solid cherry and the top two shelves are one board. That was a gamble but the boards seemed to be pretty stable so we’ll see how it looks in a couple years. This is my first project using cherry and i have to say, it smells awesome when cut! I’ve still got a couple more coats of finish to put on it before i can call it done and can post pictures in the projects section. Zac
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...
Well I am making some progress abeit that it is slow. I was in limbo wondering what I was going to do for the false drawer front material. I am trying to keep my cost down and really didn’t want to purchase mahogany to make the fronts out of. I was browsing around one of the hardwood stores that I purchaase from over in Memphis and got to talking to one of the sales reps and told him what I was trying to do and he put me on a species of wood that I had never used before and said that...
I’m putting this ad in for my Uncle Bill who is selling all of his woodworking tools from his home in Cape Neddick Maine. I thought someone on here would be most interested in what he has to offer. He has a Grizzly Shaper G1024 for $250.00, a W & H molder/planer for $1000 with knives, a floor drill, a DeVilbiss air compresser…and more and more 207-712-6178
I had been holding off buying this tool for several years. Recently one of my customers in whose house I had installed a fiberglass tub surround had a crack appear in the soap dish of the unit. The company sent someone out to fix the crack as the surround was still within the twenty year guarantee period. The repair failed within a year and the company at its option decided to replace the complete surround. When I install these surrounds I use twice the amount of adhesive that is supplied by ...

Updated 1/15/12 Now we need to cut a recess in the lid for the medallion to set down into.DONT cut your medallion until you have routed out the home for it.I typically make the medallion about 1” to 1.5” smaller on all sides than the lid depending on the box size and the piece of wood I have for the medallion. We are now going to make a simple jig for a router to set on and run back and forth making several passes of incrementally deeper cuts. There are a several ways to do ...
