Tools and tool troubles. #2: Buying used tools at auction

12-02-2009 06:55 AM by Roz | 12 comments »

I got a call the other day from my brother-in-law the auctioneer. He ask if I was interested in a couple of sanding tables. Knowing nothing about them I said sure I’ll give you 100.00 a piece for them. So they went through the sale and I got them both. I passed one along to another LJ who lives in my area and we split the expense. They came from a large cabinet company that went out of business. The bad news is that there were several nice tools that went very cheap the week b...

Tall Oak Mirror ... getting warmer :-)

12-02-2009 04:19 AM by NBeener | 22 comments »

I’m so close! The clamps are holding the oak backer board on … which is holding the mirror in place. The top oak trim cap is just sitting there. The bottom trim cap was a no-show on photo day. It looks suspiciously like the top piece. BUT … I’m almost done! The trim blocks (the four corner pieces that surround the frame) are glued on. I’m going to run the top and bottom edges through my jointer, along with the top and bottom cap pieces … just to ...

First self designed piece of furniture #1: Almost built, getting close to the finishing stage

11-29-2009 04:09 AM by drfixit | 2 comments »

This is the first peice of furniture I have designed and built. It is a small table to sit between my parents two recliners. The slide out drawer will contain a small trash can that can be hidden when not in use. It is made of red oak. Trying to match some of the furniture thay have I made the profile around the top using the table saw, a 1/2” round over bit, and a 1/4” round nose bit. It still needs to be sanded down and will be stained pecan. The top is recessed for a piec...

Making a shelf. Cut the width. Cut to length. Easy right? Done.

11-22-2009 06:25 AM by BlankMan | 3 comments »

Well here’s some pictures of the shelf completed and installed with the Drum Sander on the new stand, and the reason for all this. I was going to paint the shelf black but then I thought that would make it dark in the storage area. So then I thought white, but then I remember I had some Dutch Boy Metallic Silver so I used that. Matched rather nicely. The shelf painted and installed for the last time. Bottom view (stand upside down) showing how I supported the shelf with one screw ...

Circular Jig #1: Base

11-20-2009 07:07 PM by aflixa | 2 comments »

This is my first attempt at writing the blog. I’m testing how to present, the resolution of images, etc … I promise complete with photos and text illuminating. This is a Beta version! The construction of my Jig circular aims to make perfect cuts to facilitate the connection between the parts from cutting. The lower clamping system allows for maximum space on top. It will be used with larger radii. The pivot bracket can be rotated beyond the limits of the table, enabling grea...

Chess board. #1: How to make a wavy chess board..

11-20-2009 12:20 PM by degoose | 29 comments »

This project is not technically finished so I will not post as a project..This part of the blog will deal with the cutting of arcs.I basically used one of the patron jigs I developed to cut the end curves for a Baguette Board…this pivots on the circle cutting jig. Cut two lengths of contrasting or complimentary timbers… I of course chose Purple Heart and Silver Ash…Silver Ash and Tasmanian Blackwood would have also been suitable… But if all you have is Walnut and Curl...

Making a shelf. Cut the width. Cut to length. Easy right? Not.

11-20-2009 08:37 AM by BlankMan | 8 comments »

So, I get this new enclosed stand for my Delta Drum Sander and one side of it is open. Why? Storage? But there’s no shelf. No bottom. So you’d be storing stuff on the floor. And if it’s on a normal mobile base that is also open you’d be dragging the stuff around on the floor when you moved it. Dumb. The kicker is, I’ve seen promo pictures where they show sandpaper being stored in there sitting on the non existent shelf. So just to double check I go to a store ...

Design Concepts #1: Custom Stationary Tool Cabinet

11-19-2009 11:44 PM by Unskilled | 0 comments »

I was tempted for a long time to create a tool cabinet like I’ve seen in many books and magazines (Shopnotes’ ‘Heirloom Toolbox’ comes to mind), but wasn’t prepares for such a daunting task immediately since I am a new woodworker. I then decided that I really like my Snap-On knockoff tool cabinet, so I have considered an alternate design to hold a very specific set of tools. So specific in fact, that I plan on french-fitting every tool in every drawer aside fro...

End Table - Prototype #1: Prototype for upcoming Television Stand

11-16-2009 09:09 AM by Sleff | 1 comment »

So I’ve been planning on building a decent mahogany tv stand for about a year now. I drew up numerous plans and picked out tons of wood from my old stockpile. I had the dimensions down so that it would fit my (much too large and heavy) old school tvas well as 3 peripherals right at the top. Also lots of storage below for whatever. Work became unbelievably busy last year, as well as my wife getting pregnant and my twinswere born 7 months ago. Wow. So needless to say I didn̵...

Grain Matching Corners on a Box #1: How Many Can You do?

11-12-2009 04:11 AM by scrappy | 11 comments »

I have been doing some thinking about Grain Matching corners. We all see boxes that the wood has been wraped around to match 3 corners, but the 4th is allways off. I think I have come up with a way to match all 4 sides. I will be making a box when I can get back in the shop.(hurt my shoulder and LOML won’t let me play until next week) Will take step by step pics and post in this series for everyone. Keep an eye open for updates. If anyone else has a process for this, feel free ...
