I spent a lot of time looking on the internet for a Jig or fixture to use to install a set of quadrant hinges. The quadrant hinge is a complicated-looking L-shaped hinge that is use in the jewelry boxes that I make. It helps to remember that a quadrant hinge is simply a butt hinge with integral lid stay or stop.The arms of the hinge extend along the sides of the lid and base of the box and the internal stop bar extends from and recesses into a mortise in the box wall and lid. The jewelry box ...
I have been working on this project time permitting. Had end of school year stuff with the kids, a surprise visit from some relatives, and of course been busy traveling for work, so it has been interment to say the best :( So, I got this puppy glued up a couple of weekends ago. After fighting with a shelf that I messed up on and had to remake a new one. Talk about frustation, nothing went right with it and it took me a couple of weeks just to build one new shelf.Now this project has had many...

With a surplus of pumpkins this fall (folks just aren’t spending the money ) I have pumpkins to dispose of. Why not have a little fun and get some target practice!
Well, finally got some shop time in. I cut the sockets with my father’s help a couple of weeks ago, and that went well other than one mishap due to a knot. I got out this afternoon and cleaned up the shop and then got to work on the setup for cutting the pins. That took a while but after dozen or so ;) test runs I had my wife come out and take a look to see if I was being a bit too AR. Of course I was and she said that everything looked fine. So, isn’t this the way it always goes,...
So this is my first tool test/comparison. I am putting my LN progressive pitch VS. my friends Veritas 14tpi VS. other friends Bad Axe 15tpi. Before jumping into using the tools, let’s introduce them. First my LN progressive pitch. The saw plate is 9” long, 1 5/8” depth of cut the plate is 0.020” thick with a kerf of 0.026”. The major difference is this saw has 16tpi at the toe and progressively gets more aggressive at the back where it is 9tpi. The saw come’s hand filed and set. Bras...
Well after one long month of frustration with a height issue. I finally got this project to the finishing stage today. The bentwood lamination I bragged about the last time was a bit short in height once I finished cleaning up the glue up. After multiple goes at getting all three edges even and losing 1 1/2” in height. I had my dad come over and give me a hand this week and we finally got her done. Hot glue, a straight edged board, a 1/2” upcut spiral bit, and a bushing on the old...
Time to make the lid. Easy enough, I made it overlap about a half inch on each side (mostly dictated based on the size of the project panels that I used) and 1.5” on the front for the lifting of the lid. I should comment here on the project panels issue. I bought the standard project pine panels for this project at Home Depot and I felt a bit guilty about it. I told my fiancee when I bought them that I felt like I was “cheating” and that buying the pre assembled pane...
I’ve created 9 – 3-3/4” patterns and 6 – 5-3/4” patterns that you can pick from to chip carve. Creating your own patterns is encouraged too. Here’s a glimpse of one page of the 3-3/4” patterns. The easiest way I could come up with for you to be able to download these quilt square patterns I’ve prepared, is to post them in the My Chip Carving Member area. If you are already a member – log in and go to the Pattern Vault and look...
In this episode I go over the installation of the drawer slides. It is very important to remember that the width of you drawer box is the key to a successful slide installation.
