Cincinnati area LJs - Help and opportunity

117 days ago by CincyRW | 4 comments »

If there are any LJs in the Cincinnati area, the Art Academy of Cincinnati is running an “Intermediate” woodworking class starting next Wednesday (3/26/2014). Problem is – I’m the only person registered – they only need 1 more person to make the class a “go”. Here’s a link to the course description - If you’re learning like I am this is 2 1/2 hours / week of almost 1:1 time with an accomplished woodworking instructor for 8 weeks&#...

Hide Glue #6: Save Your Hide (Glue)

122 days ago by Patricelejeune | 7 comments »

Here is the new installment on our videos on Hide Glue. Many have asked us how they could save there Hot Hide Glue when they are not using it. Not like Old Brown Glue, Hot Hide Glue will rot in days if not cooked or frozen. It is not advised to freeze the all glue pot, so we usually dry the glue if we have to much In this case, we had taught classes for 2 weeks at the American School of French Marquetry and had 2 glue pots on the hot plates. The class finished, we were back at the works...

I needed a new table saw sled for a different saw i’m using. I’m currently finishing a miter saw cut station I built & needed a sled to make small cuts. After having made a few others I notice how wooden sleds react to moisture content in the air so I wanted this new one to be built with out wood. I made this new sled out of left over plexiglass I had laying around & used aluminum for the runners. The fence is actual bulletproof glass.It came out better looking than I wou...

Cherry Nightstand #3: Raised Panels for the Sides

139 days ago by Todd | 2 comments »

Rather arbitrarily I chose to make the side panels for the nightstand first.

Treasure Box #2: Raised Panel Bottom

143 days ago by TerryDowning | 6 comments »

I’ve done a couple of raised panels now using hand planes. There are a couple of videos if you google raised panel with hand planes. One form Paul Sellers and one from Stumpy and basically they describe the same process. Unfortunately, I have discovered a couple of issues with this process that I did not care for. 1. The raised panel itself is not cleanly defined.2. The rabbet used to go into the sides of a frame or box are more wedge shaped and the panel does not seat claenly in...
