Plugging large holes

10-13-2015 01:18 PM by Nels | 12 comments »

I have used material that had bolts and washers in it. The holes are 1-3/4” and I need to plug these holes. Cutting the exsisting holes with a router or drill bit is easy. How can I cut a plug accurately that is 2-1/2” in diameter and 1/2” thick? I can make the hole smaller (maybe 2-3/8” or 2-1/4”), but I want to cut out the defects around where the bolt holes are. The material is oak and there are about 200 holes to plug. I guess I could turn the plugs,...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #4: First cut of the demo video shot this week.

07-18-2009 09:11 AM by degoose | 19 comments »

You guys are seeing this video while it is still in the editing stage,, no voice over but there will be.Hope you see the versatility and adaptability of the wee beastie. If you have any questions , I will be happy to answer them and If I don’t know will find out. This was a nearly 400 meg video.. but by splitting and compressing to Mp4 got it down to a fairly acceptable size. I have 117 small segments that deal with things like adjustment and fitting of various attachments for those wh...

Stool II, the making of a Cabriole leg

01-28-2016 07:11 PM by Lazy_K | 2 comments »

Because someone asked… making a cabriole leg, either round or squared isn’t nearly as hard as some think. First: make up your pattern…then draw it on the side and front of your leg stock. then proceed to cut it out ;)If you have a bandsaw, start on one side, leave a little (1/4”) uncut at the bottom of the cuts, so you’ll need to cut in from both ends. cut all of the cuts on this side like this, if there is an area on the “underside” (side a...

Adjustable angle jig

08-06-2010 03:33 AM by Jeff | 1 comment »

Been wrestling with the problem of how to cut the miter angles on a curved top panel to a carcass with uneven side heights. The big problem are the curved nature of the panel and the fact that the angles are acute (past the 45 degree stop) and different on each side. Ended up building this adjustable jig. The slotted base lets me adjust distance from the blade, and the friction chest lid hardware the angle. I inked a line on the saw table with an ultra-fine Sharpie by registering a str...

I have been busy working and my daughter has ben busy with school, so we haven’t had much time to spend on this. We have made some progress though. A little each week. She has cut and shapeed the handles with the router. Finished all the doors. She sprayed the whole thing down with strong tea to add tannins to the pine. We used this ammonia. We sealed it in the shower with the ammoina overnight. We pulled it out and looked at it. I was pleased. ...

Medal Chest #11: The Lid, or, No Tablesaw, No Problem!

04-22-2013 01:08 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. Oh yeah, this post actually is the result of 6 days in the workshop—-some didn’t have pictures and I didn’t want to bore you with just text, so I put it all together under the title of The Lid. At last, w...

The Kitchen Project #2: Door #2

11-30-2009 11:07 PM by End_Grain | 0 comments »

Well just finished my second door. Reduced the stiles to 2.25 inches. For the bottom double panel I simply put the frame together and then moved the one rail until I liked the size, measured and then added 3/4” to the measurement. I like this one better but then again it’s not my kitchen. I’m just the unpaid help, ‘Ya mule!’ I have one remaining fit problem on the upper rail that as I ran it through the shaper I was kicking myself before I even finished. Oh...

So what's it worth?

05-04-2012 12:10 AM by scrimman | 3 comments »

For the longest time I’ve wondered how to answer that question ‘how much is it?’ How do you judge that? I’ve finally gotten down to the point where I’m going to have to just start being a little OCD and start writing it down. Thus far it’s been working ok; I’ve got a couple of celtic crosses I need to carve for a couple of weddings I’ve been invited to. Being that the wood, this time, was free I can concentrate on what it is I do to it…...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #6: Last Class of Level 1 :-(

01-28-2011 07:30 AM by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

Well the Level 1 is done and no I didn’t get my nail tray finished; I need about another hour to get it all together including fixing my myriad ‘learning opportunities’:-) I had a chance to use a rabbetting plane! and a brace and bit. I am very impressed with how easily these tools worked, I had anticipated that they would be much less effective for a lot more effort. I will be keeping my eyes open for good garage sales and auctions for more hand tools now. Overall (...
