We just published a new video on the reversibility of the animal glues and specifically hide glue through a presentation and 2 projects.

Flatten Veneer with Hot Aluminum Plates! #1: I really want to know what you think about this!

06-01-2015 02:48 AM by CharlieK | 6 comments »

I just completed a video that shows How to Flatten Veneer using hot aluminum plates. This really is an amazing technique! I am very impressed by how well it works. My friend Tom Schrunk showed me this technique and he was nice enough to participate in the video with me. I did upload a very short video from the Handworks event, but that was just kind of a quickie. I really put a LOT of effort into this one! I tried some new things in this video and it would really help me to know wha...

Timber framing #1: Laying out a simple curve

06-01-2015 02:00 AM by Catlike | 0 comments »

I downloaded a free set of plans for timber-framed sawhorses from Timberframe Headquarters. The plans call for a curved cut-out on the bottom side of each base piece. I was thinking it was too much trouble to lay out and cut these, but I remembered some how-to from the boat-building books I read last year, and I decided I wanted to try laying out and fairing a curve. First, I used a sector, story sticks, and my L-square to find and mark the middle of the base. The sector saved me from h...

Gathering Ideas #1: How to Make the Square Hinge Work

05-30-2015 09:20 PM by Jerry | 40 comments »

I recently had someone ask me why not make my hinges square since I was planing the back side of them flat. Truth is I considered it, but could not get past the problem of the hinge jamming into the box as it rotated. If you look closely at the picture below, you can see how the corner of a square hinge rotates down into the imaginary box in the picture. Anyone have any ideas?

Made from $12.00 worth of bronze bushings and a shaft collar. The shaft collar has a set screw that holds a 1/8” drill bit in place, so you would need to use 1/8” axles for your hinge pieces.

The shaft collar has an outside diameter of 3/8”, takes a 1/8” drill bit, and uses an allen set screw that takes a 1/16R...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #43: Tool Tip - Simple Depth Gauge for Twist Bits

05-25-2015 11:53 AM by Paul Bucalo | 0 comments »

Yesterday, while working on the stake sides for my Harbor Freight trailer, I found myself in a need for a depth gauge for the drill bits I was using. I didn’t think to bring out a roll of painter’s tape and I was too into my work to get one from the dungeon. A solution that worked well for me: use your marking pencil to draw a heavy line across one of the twist bit’s flukes. The line will be quite visible as the bit spins. _ I have been busy with building a trailer...

This is Part two of the two part series that I am doing on how to create a cabinet size report from the cut list that ecabinets generates in excel.In this video I will show you how you can edit the recorded macros for the text to columns.
