General thoughts on life and woodworking #3: The contest and an important safety lesson

05-11-2010 07:47 PM by Jack_T | 3 comments »

Well I made the May 7, 2010 deadline for the Gorilla Glue Contest, just barely. I submitted it at 11:58 p.m. I am quite pleased with myself. Not because I think the project is the greatest project ever made; but rather it was I my first woodworking project that I set a deadline to and met the deadline. Normally the woodworking that I do is in my spare time and gets done when it gets done. No deadline at all. this was fun! I also learned a very important safety tip because of this pro...

Home Improvements #1: Attic Hatch

04-18-2013 06:15 AM by Bytesabit | 3 comments »

I just installed my new attic hatch made from Maple :) It’s built with a 3.5”x 3/4” frame to fit into the hatch hole. I added a 1” runner on the bottom that has a 3/32” rabbit cut along the side facing the frame that accepts snugly a length of magnetic weather strip that seals to a metal trim around the outer edge of the hatch door. The door is 3/4” plywood to fit the frame square and has foam insulation on top of it.I finished it with some Antique ...

This woodworking tutorial features the mitre joint. If you’ve done carpentry or woodworking there probably was a time or two that the mitre joint was a challenge. This video shows how the mitre joint can be cut and fit with great accuracy, done safely, and with ease by using a mitre sled on the tablesaw. What if you could take your wood projects to another level? Now you can. You can feel comfortable cutting one mitre or hundreds of mitre joints as the mitre sled method ensures ac...

Joinery #2: Don't get your drawers in a twist

07-21-2010 03:56 AM by Rob Bois | 3 comments »

I have done videos in the past about how I handle hand cut dovetails for drawers, so for this current project I decided it didn’t make much sense to just highlight the same techniques. Instead, I focused on several challenges I faced with this most recent set of drawers, ranging from some tricky grain to sharpening fatigue. This won’t teach you how to build a drawer, but you might find a few tips you can apply in your shop.

Staining Raised Panel Doors

02-04-2013 04:15 AM by bobkberg | 3 comments »

I don’t know who thought up this one, but I thought I would share it. My house is a 1920’s Craftsman bungalow, and in adding to it, I’ve put a lot of effort into keeping the original feel with 5 panel doors, all stained to match the original architecture, and all the other trim. In staining a full sized 80 inch high door, I drill holes in the top and bottom and put in a lag bolt in the top and bottom and then pivot them on the ends of sawhorses. The lag bolt is kept in ...
