Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #6: Quick drawer question for the more experienced!

08-29-2010 03:07 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

Ok, so I’ve changed the design of the drawers a bit on my bench cabinet. I decided that instead of sliding on wood rails – per the plan – that it would be much better to use side mount ball bearing sliders. The plan calls for 19-3/4” deep (carcass is 20” deep) but they don’t make 19” sliders. I got 18”s. The width of the drawer is 23” (I know, I’ve read that they shouldn’t be wider than the slider, oh well…) Depth o...

Starting Upper Cut Woodworks #4: Dedicating time to Woodworking

01-06-2010 09:15 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 3 comments »

I’m not sure this post will paste in correctly. Feel free to read the blog on my site. One of the the things I’ve been figuring out is how to dedicate time to Upper Cut on a consistent basis. As I’ve mentioned before, I have a rewarding but demanding full-time job and a wonderful family that I like to spend time with. Even without a business, woodworking is something I enjoy, so I definitely want to set aside the time for it. So how do I make sure I dedicate enough time to the busine...

Making a Violin #4: Cutting the 4mm edge to size

11-22-2010 07:26 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

The wood shaped to the line. If you check back a few posts there were two lines. My ‘final’ line is what you see remaining. Here’s a jig I made to cut the edges to size. Does anyone see what ‘the problem’ is in this picture? Think hard… It’s a 1hp Craftsman router with a 3/8” straight bit. I call it a ‘face off’ bit, but I could be wrong? The jig part is the device holding the router steady. It’s 1/8” alu...

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...

Hints and Tips #26: To the last drop

01-08-2017 03:03 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

This is a tip that I got from the pooroldchap YouTube channel [link]. He posts what he terms Workshop Waffles where he talks about things in his workshop. If you use WD-40 or a similar aerosol propelled lubrication oil this may help you save a few cents. I took an old metal oil can that once contained sewing machine oil. I’m not sure if anything like this can still be purchased or if they’ve all gone over to plastic. A plastic bottle may be usable, but you’ll need a t...
