Jewelry Case Build #9: Assembly and Hinges

35 days ago by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

Today I began assembly. Everything went really well. One small error I had to fix, Once the glue was dry, I noticed the little drawers were slightly proud of the side panel. This would prevent the door from closing. I just took out each drawer and sanded a bit off the face. They fit fine now. I had to chisel out eight tiny hinge mortises. I’ve also never done those before. They turned out quite nice. I only have to do a final fit on the doors and screw them into place then ...

Jewelry Case Build #8: Glass and Mirrors

36 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

Among the new skills I’ve learned in this project, I learned the basics behind cutting glass. This project has two glass panel doors, one glass panel side and two mirrors, set into frames. To my surprise and delight, cutting glass is really quite easy. I won’t go into that detail here but suffice to say if you are thinking about cutting your own glass, do it! Once I cut all the glass and mirrors, I epoxied them into the frames. The mirrors were easy as the backs aren’...

Restoring my Great Grandfather's Table Saw ca. 1950s

39 days ago by wmixon | 7 comments »

Hi everyone, I have been a member on lumberjocks for only a few weeks…but have been a reader for a while. I have recently had the opportunity to rebuild my Great Grandfather’s 1950s era Craftsman 113.xx series table saw. What a journey of historical context and family memories this project was for me! The saw was given to me by my father when I expressed interest in setting up a work shop (I’m 28). While in working condition, it had much to be done and some improv...

Jewelry Case Build #6: Tiny Drawers, Tiny Rabbets, Tiny Dados!

41 days ago by RoadHogg | 1 comment »

Continuing with the tiny drawers, of which there are six, I constructed a little “cabinet” for them to sit in. They basically just sit on little shelves, negating the need for slides etc, which in this case, are not at all practical due to the size of this case. Nothing rocket science here, just fiddling with 12 little drawer fronts/backs and 12 little drawer sides. All 24 pieces got a small rabbet in the bottom edge and the sides each got rabbets in the ends where they will m...

Buying Your Last Tool First

43 days ago by TheWoodenOyster | 5 comments »

Buying Your Last Tool First I acquired my first shop space around 2 years ago. Once I moved into my shop, I began my quest to fill the shop with awesome power tools. This post will discuss the overarching rule I follow when buying my power tools, and some examples of tools I have purchased. My thought process about buying powertools is this: Buy your last tool first!!! What I mean by that is make your first tablesaw, bandsaw, router, jointer, etc the one that you want to be using when y...

Jewelry Case Build #5: Top and Base and Trim

44 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

In between working on a larger project, I’ve been fitting in a few minutes (hours) to fiddle with this jewelry case. Today I cut the top and bottom to size, ran rabets and dados, milled some trim on my router table and mitered the trim to fit. This included making up a simple miter jig for the table saw. Once complete, the jig is an excellent way to get perfect miters every time. It’ll come in handy when making picture frames etc too. To make the stopped dados in the top an...

Waste of Time and Wood Today

48 days ago by Dave Rutan | 9 comments »

I think I need a new blade for my table saw. At least a blade is cheaper than buying a jointer. I had this idea that I wanted to start making a project today and I didn’t want to buy the wood. So I rummaged through some out of the way spots in my workshop and came up with two identical drawer fronts. The wood I need for the project needs to be 12 inches across and these two 8 inch drawer fronts were my best bet. Unfortunately, I’d have to glue them together edgewise. No probl...

Coffee Table Build #2: Panel Building

49 days ago by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

After glueing up the table top, I began making the frames for the sides. I cut four panels, and eight rails and stiles. I took the time to use my hollow chisel mortiser to mortise all the stiles and I made tenons on the rails with my tenoning jig. This went quite well and everything fit nicely. I decided to practise a haunched tenon on the rails although this part will never be seen, what better time to try something new! Two of the panels will be set into two of the frames but the oth...

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #1: Precursor and laminating the body

49 days ago by Wally331 | 4 comments »

Intro- I’ve been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are a lot cheaper (if you have some time on your hands) and you don’t have to deal with old warped wood and a host of other problems you may encounter. I can’t say I am an expert by any means, I’m simply sharing my...

Piping Up #2: What to do when the machines break

49 days ago by sylinen | 4 comments »

I love my Shopsmith|I hate my Shopsmith. It’s a couplet familiar to any owner of that beguiling piece of machinery. When they work, they’re a great tool. When they break, they’re rather annoying. My Shopsmith’s particular failing is in the alignment of its pulley sheaves. They tend to become misaligned at high speed, which is no great issue when I’m using the table saw. But, when I need to slow it down the sheaves don’t mesh and I end up pushing out the thr...
