Replacement Speaker Boxes #2: Clamps are off...

12-30-2011 08:22 AM by Nighthawk | 0 comments »

Been a bit slack and well christmas and all that no excuse… anyway both speakers now glued and set, the back piece is not yet glued in, so we can assemble the wiring to the actual speakers when finished etc. Clamps are off and the long slow timely process of sanding to get them loooking good. This will also hide any inperfections of our glue up… Doh Have taped newspaper over speaker faces to protect them the best we can, so no dust can get in anyway. Also have done the same to ...

Spline jig #2: The box from the jig

12-29-2011 10:25 PM by Sanman | 1 comment »

I ended up with a very large spline after playing with the jig. No worries, this is my pallet wood pile to practice with. As far as I can tell, this is a pine box with cedar splines, top, and bottom. My first attempt at routing an edge, lot’s of burs on the end grains. What causes that? The box came out nice. I made 45 cuts and glued together with out clamps. I used tape and checked my square before leaving it to dry. It seems to sit flat on the ts. I worked...

Building the shop #5: Floor Plan for Shop - just a guess-timate

12-21-2011 07:42 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 10 comments »

Quick post here – 0400 comes awfully early… Here is my rough drawing of how I will lay out my shop. NOTES: ShopVac will be under the bench ShopSmith is questionable at this point, but it’s the only jointer I have right now, so it stays for now Brown rectangles with thick black border are workbenches Restricted area is immovable, lost space The purple area is the lazy susan that will hold the 4 tools as noted If you’ve got ideas, recommendations or ...

How To Make Segmented Lidded Boxes Using Milk Container Tops.

12-19-2011 10:35 AM by Grumpy | 10 comments »

I recently posted a project called “Milk Bottle Tops & Scrap Wood”, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/57351 There was some interest in the concept & some of you requested a blog on how they were done.So I thought I should get on with it before I forgot the whole process. LOLThe whole idea started from a need to cut down on all the scrap pieces of wood and composite material lying around in the shed.We all have those bits that we won’t throw out. They will come in ha...

The Maloof Library Series #10: Maloof Inspired Sculpted Table project - Pixar meets woodworking

12-19-2011 03:00 AM by ScottMorrison | 10 comments »

This is a small sample of my new woodworking project video, “Building a Maloof Inspired Sculpted Table.” Templates and video available for pre-order at finewoodworker.com. It is a totally new, and never before seen, type of video project (and pretty darn cool, if I do say so myself). Think Pixar meets woodworking. Completely 3D and presented with amazing details and animation that leave no room for error in your project. Everyone who has built one of my chairs (or any cha...

Obelisks #1: Cutting Process

12-11-2011 10:06 PM by Jim Jakosh | 10 comments »

Obelisks are fun and easy to make and great use of wood from a project that would otherwise be discarded. I made a few and have had some LJ’s ask how I do it, so I thought I’ll take a few pictures and save a few thousand words. I start with a rectangular block with a square base. I find the center on one end and draw line from that center to the corners at the other end. I bandsaw down the lines being careful to always stay outside the line. It is better for finish sanding than a...

Virtual Designs in Sketchup #12: Sanding Sheet Holder

12-10-2011 09:04 PM by rance | 8 comments »

When I make boxes, I typically tape down a full sheet of 150 grit sandpaper to the Table Saw to level the top and bottom of the boxes after they are glued up. The TS is one of the few dead flat surfaces in the shop where I teach. Being as this is a ‘portable’ situation, this is a pain because of having to tape and untape it each time. I want something to slap down on a bench and be able to quickly grab it to take it with me at the end of the day. I’ve seen the ones using ...

Built in E-center, Yala #3: It is finished!

12-03-2011 03:13 PM by topcat | 3 comments »

I haven’t done one of these in a while. The build was a bit excruciating. Took 6 days, about 10-12 hrs. per day. Started on the Thurs. before Thanksgiving. That was an easy day. I just ran around getting all of the materials together and did some initial layout work and rough cut the plywood sides. These were full height and were too awkward to move around, so I used a straight edge and my new PC 8902 router to get the edges of the plywood ready for the face frames. Once the first side ...
