My Roubo Workbench. #5: Part 6 Sliding Deadman

01-03-2016 11:14 AM by joedillon | 3 comments »

When milling up the material for the bench at my firms workshop i created a right angled triangular rail for the deadman to slide across, a couple of opposing 45 rips followed by a 0 rip was enough to create the slide. This was cut to the shoulder length of the front slider, glued and clamped into position.The underside of the top received a 12×20mm groove between the two front mortices created by a router and parallel fence.I cut a birds mouth at the bottom and a tongue at the t...

Kitchen Utensil Box #4: Shaping the corner posts

12-29-2015 08:22 AM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Well, after many months of hiatus from this project, I managed to get back on the horse. Looking at the May 30th time stamp of the last post, I realized that this is right before My convocation (graduation) ceremony at my university – so you can officially feel free to call me Dr. Ovens! This of course led to several months of job hunting, the success of which is still to be determined. In any case, the last update showed the joinery I used to couple the Padauk corner posts with the ...

Lego Table #13: Sliding bottom idea...

12-11-2015 10:57 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

After a quick check on the wounded drawer to see how things were drying, I came to the conclusion that my repair work accomplished it’s goal. The drawer is nice and sturdy again after the glue. However, I’m a little concerned about the depth of the router cut. I may have to redo this one. I decided to shelve the drawers and move on with the other trickery needed to finish the top. I need to make the little bins on the wings that will collect Legos the kids scoop off the main play surfa...

Hints and Tips #10: Template Sawing on the Table Saw

09-03-2015 05:50 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

If you remember my Tip #7, I showed how I jointed one edge of a board by taping a straight edge to a board and running it along the fence of a table saw. Well, sometimes I think I’m just stupid! There’s an easier way to do this and I already had the jig for it made. My wife asked me for a piece of wood to shore up one side of an electronic keyboard at her school. I had a piece in mind, but wanted to square it up and paint it black. After I did all of this, using the method des...

3D printed dovetail template

06-22-2014 08:07 PM by nisker | 10 comments »

I’ve been wanting to try my hand at dovetails for a while – and beeing awfully fond of tools, I figured a dovetail template would be a nice thing to have for that purpose. but I also really like the idea about building my own tools and a dovetail template is very simple in design. However im not really sure I can yield my saw with enough precision to make a wooden one yet – allthough buying a dozuki really helped there. So I went with a different approach that gave me ...

Kitchen Shelf: Step By Step #1: The support units

03-19-2014 08:15 PM by Greg Guarino | 2 comments »

We have more kitchen stuff than fits in our cabinets. We decided that a really large shelf could serve to hold some of the nicer-looking pieces, opening up room for the more utilitarian stuff behind closed doors. This started as a simple, innocent slab of wood on some store-bought brackets, but got waylaid in the design process. :) Here’s the design It’s big, about 94” long by 12” deep. It also incorporates two techniques I haven’t tried before (I’...

Template Cutting Faux Pas

03-24-2013 06:22 PM by whit | 0 comments »

I’m working on a rigid heddle loom and came across an issue cutting out the sides. To some of you more well-versed in the arts and sciences of template cutting, this is probably a ho-hum tip. For me, it was an “Ah hah!!” moment. I’d taken care to make sure the minimum radius in the template was .5” since that’s the bit I used for the cutout. What I didn’t take into account was the length of the arms on the router table guard/DC that resulted in ...

Cedar Gate Handle #1: Cedar Gate handle - Start to Finish

03-17-2013 05:29 PM by twobyfour16 | 0 comments »

So, I recently built a new cedar gate & needed some handles. I didn’t want to go out & buy some, so decided to make my own. Inspired by “” CaptainAhab’s handles, I ended up with:Here’s how I built them:Starting with a lamination of 3 pieces of clear Cedar which I planed down to about 2 1/8” thick:Obviously, I made a little template for the top curves out of 1/4” plywood & cut the top curve with the ban...

My Maloof lowback #1: Its on!

01-29-2012 10:31 AM by Antti | 6 comments »

After reading Maloof’s book last summer, I ordered the DVD and templates from Scott Morrison, claiming the lowback to be my “winter project”. Now its (actually “they” as I’m making a pair) on the way as I officially have completed the first few steps: Glued the templates on plywood, cut out with a bandsaw and sanded to line: Milled, ripped, ripped to 3 degree angle, cross cut the seats: In fact, after sleeping on it a couple of weeks, went back...
