Set the blade of the table saw to 60 degrees.. a bevel box makes this simpleI use the INCRA fence system so it is easy to rip bevels off side of the blade.Once the bevels are ripped measure the length of the bevel and move the f...

"Art Box" Tutorial #12: Shaping

08-11-2009 01:55 PM by Andy | 28 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is the fun part! Its scary too! The idea of taking a nice crisp box, one you have spent countless hours making, and attacking it with a tool designed for slag removal is…well…its a little disturbing. Maybe I was influenced by old Hitchcock movies more than I know. Seriously, what I enjoy is the freedom this gives me. Everything up to this point has been tied to measurements and careful setups. This is where we can cut loose a little. But slow down Hot...

Large bench made from the tree that stood in the grounds.

08-07-2009 07:20 PM by mreagleeyes | 18 comments »

I am working on yet another piece and thought I’d share me project so far with you guys. The Magnolia ‘Salicifolia’ tree had stood in the grounds of the Inner Temple on London’s Thames for over 80 years but due to a fungus it had to come down. My original plan was to use the timber as a practice piece that I could use my new Arbortech grinder on, however whilst the guys where cutting the tree down the girl in charge of the gardens asked what I would do with the t...

Murphy Bed Side Cabinets #10: Side Cabinets Ready to Prep for Finish

08-07-2009 01:35 AM by Gene47 | 1 comment »

Today was a good day. I managed to get the side cabinets for the murphy bed fiinished and all I need to do now is but some edge banding on the adjustable shelves sand and prep for finishing. I know that at the moment it looks like a hodge podge of material but the face frame and drawer fronts are made of Obeechee and upon the suggestion of a man at the lumber supply place I was told that this wood would stain up and look like Mahogany. I did stain a test piece and it looked like it was...

Big Pine Board Suggestions---First steps--Roughing it out

08-02-2009 03:59 AM by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Hello again all, After thinking about and looking at the suggestions provided, I decided to take a piece of one suggestion and run with it. I am going to take this 8’ board and turn it into a couch table—kinda. Ulimately this will end up being four separate tables linked together by puzzle piece cutouts. If you want one table about 24 inches square, you only use one part of the table. If you need a longer table (maybe for serving at a party) you can piece together up to all fou...

07-30-2009 08:53 PM by kosta | 3 comments »

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

07-23-2009 12:58 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 8 comments »

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 ...
