I realize I am a picky little sucker but am I over the line on this or am I wrong in the way I see this?From the http://www.garymkatz.com/trimtechniques/hiddenpivotbookcaseinstall.htm Edgebanding plywood shelvingI’ve done a lot of edgebanding and always hated the hair-line crack that develops between the plywood and the solid stock. That gap is caused by the inner plywood endgrain_ swelling from the glue, which puts a little belly in the edge and forces the banding away from top and bottom...
Wife and I make a design and I am tasked with making a hutch for the kitchen It will be in two parts (as the item it replaces is just a kinda sideboard with a few drawers and a lone shelf behind a door. This should be a huge improvement (casue she designed it and as long as I stick to the design I cannot go wrong!). The bottom half started with a lot of web surfing and finally an order from “OSBORN” woodworks they make a crap load of turned junk and other architectural ite...
This is my first “blog” and I am not sure if this is even the right place to post it because I am not real clear as to what a “blog” really is! I made it to this rock we call earth just in time to be considered a baby boomer. I just caught the tail end of it (my life story). Any who,…I was cleaning up my garage/shop the other day (my wife says it’s about time!) when I started taking a closer look at the caliber of tools I have and have had for many,…many years. I got to thinking back to how I...
I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...
August 1, 2010 It is in the nature of we humans to be curious, and I flatter myself by including myself in the group.So, I’m wondering about we LumberJocks, as to the number of us who consider themselves serious photographers and how many would like to become serious. The question is a good one because we show one another what we do and how we do it with photographs. If we have good photographic skills and a smattering of ability in editing and at least a basic knowledge of how th...
I’m building cabinets for under my bench. I’m following the ‘plans’ provided and they call for splines and slots. From the plans: So, I spent the better part of a day routing out 1/4” deep 1/8” slots in 3/4” birch ply which mates up with some rock maple edging with corresponding slots. I’m thinking ”Hey, this is going to look really cool, birch and maple.” Got the splines cut and started dry assembly only to discover that t...
Hello all. Well I seem to have whet the appetite a bit so here goes for a ‘novel’ technique for making mitred boxes. Its a bit like making a box out of paper, like they showed you at school, using a ‘net’. Only in 3D, with wood and a tablesaw (not sissors). Well first comes the board Its made from alternating strips of Maple and Rosewood of varying thickness. I won’t bore you with the details on how to make it suffice to say that all the corners must b...
My brother and I have spent a good deal of time lately building a blanket chest our of quarter-sawn white oak. We have the inside lined with aromatic cedar (not fully installed yet, till after we put the finish on the rest of the project). I thought that I wanted to spray on the stain and the topcoat (was planning on polyurathane). I bought a turbine HVLP sprayer, the one from Rockler, which I wanted to get eventually anyway, b/c I keep reading/hearing that it puts a better finish on. I hav...
