How To Make Segmented Lidded Boxes Using Milk Container Tops.

849 days ago 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...

A Little Cabinetree #1: The Concept, the Goals and the Challenges.

1243 days ago by shipwright | 8 comments »

When it comes to building boats, I guess after 30 years of it I am a professional, but as a hobby woodworker I’m pretty new. Boatbuilding has given me lots of skills and abilities with tools but the scale of projects and the individual manual skills required to make small cabinets and art furniture are totally different. I am a real beginner at this stuff and am having a ball trying to learn everything at once. I retired five and a half years ago, following which my wife and I rebuilt o...

The first Art Box I completed and later posted was “Rachels Box”. I wasnt sure how it would be received, but it was a big hit right off the line. It just recently topped over 10,000 views and is the most viewed box on LJ. Wow! http://lumberjocks.com/projects/tag/box/by/views Its popularity and the ones that followed were what motivated me to post the tutorial which was a help to many.http://lumberjocks.com/Argyllshire/blog/9415 I still get mail asking about this style of box...

345 days ago by Airframer | 12 comments »

As mentioned in my Workbench Blog I was planning to replace the gents style handle on my 8” Crown Gents Dovetail Saw with a more suitable one. This will be more of a photo essay than anything but lets just say most the pics are of take 2 of this event lol. I am pretty happy with myself for getting the saw kerf cut free hand with nothing more than a scribe line and a HF flush cut saw :-) Sadly I was so “in the moment” that I forgot to take pics of the procedure. I hope ...

more simple carving 2

2155 days ago by Harold | 11 comments »

Carving the curved letter section begins with the stop cut. I use a out cannel gouge that is close to the radius that has been layed out. If you don’t have an gouge close, you can work you centers down with a parting tool, or you can use the corner of your bench chisel to work carefully around the curve. when using your bench chisel, be aware of how deep your actualy cutting, just like before you can always clean up alittle deeper.I will try and work the curves in 1/4 sections (90 degre...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #10: Adding Splines To A Box

401 days ago by Boxguy | 13 comments »

Adding Splines To a Box Assumptions: I assume you have looked at the tutorial on making the splines themselves. The tutorial on cutting the splines slots with the jig there gives you a box that looks like this on the corner. The next step is to glue the splines into the slots. I should have pictured it, but I apply Tightbond’s Carpenter’s and Trim Glue to both the spline and the slot to assure there will be a good bond. This thicker glue is easier to work with, and...

Welcome back and again sorry for taking so long to get this post out. After my hand healed I was really backed up on some other projects. I’m almost caught up and will post some of those projects on my page in the next couple of days. When we left off we had all the sanding done and are ready for staining and finishing. I’m making two of these frogs, one that will need staining and one out of exotic wood so everyone can participate in this project. We will go over staining next. I’m...

Drill Press Station - Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander

304 days ago by steliart | 6 comments »

Drill Press Station – Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander My drill press is a small inexpensive bench top type, and until I get a good floor type one I am trying to get the best out of it. One of the first things I did was to change its old pole with a stainless steel one. Why stainless steel? Well it was the only piece I could find that matched the diameter and you can slide up and down smoother. So the pole got a lift-up of about a foot taller. One of those ikea wire sh...
