Ok, I have this sliding door that just wouldn’t slide smoothly through the slot in the wood! Grrr, this was a problem. It can’t work like this. There must be a better way. I was making sawdust pushing it in and out and that can’t be good… the slot – there’s two btw… The plans were none to clear, in fact they call for a wooden dowel. How long would that last before wearing out? So, I opted for the smooth shank on a 1/4” wood bolt. Hacked t...
I know I’m not the first one to come up with something like this, but I figured I’d share it anyway. When you buy micromesh sanding pads, they are color coded, but come in a pack of 9 (yes, nine) different grits. I used to write a number on each grit, but quickly found that they smudge beyond legibility even when using a sharpie. So I came up with this simple, quick refernce system. As you can see, it’s quite easy to keep them all in order this way.
The gift is going to be a small wooden sign reading “Debbie’s Place”, in Cursive lettering, on an Oval Back.Gotta begin at the beginning, with lettering! Happily, I have Stencils of Written or Cursive style letters, this time I’m going with the one inch size. I’ve gathered what I can think of that I’ll need, though not likely everything. Ready to begin.Now there’s probably a few who will get a laugh out of doing it this way, but it works as good as an...
http://www.youtube.com/user/TeenWoodworker Hello agian you Lumber Jocks, Today I did a quick little trincket box project that was a lot of fun on the lathe. This project has a basic stage process which means you can produce a box on the lathe without having a chuck. By creating a friction fit on the lid you can turn the lid as if is was part wood still mounted to th lathe. Althoug this is a simple box with a little imagination this box could be made really exciting. To ...
I had read on the G+G Yahoo group that the handles for the file cabinet should be attached to the draw face with a machine screw into a threaded insert. My practice attempts looked like this: The problem was keeping the insert aligned with the drilled hole. If it tipped at all, the insert would jam and break. What worked was to take a long screw, cut the head off, thread on two nuts and the insert and chuck it in the drill press. Then I could lower it straight into the hole and tur...

This is a project I did for a Friend of mine who had this watch. The watch was his mother’s fathers watch that he had received in the 50’s (he has since past). She had given the watch to her son (my friend) because it did not work. We decided since the watch was in the original box with war bond advertising and everything to make this watch part pen for her. It was cool how the box although made originally for the watch was a perfect pen box. I just made an new insert to hold i...
Well, I’ve been working on my daughter’s toybox for the past couple of weeks. I have the base and the bookshelf top assembled and now I’m adding trim pieces to hide the plywood edges and assembling the toybox lids. However, this weekend, when I was attaching my Kreg pocket screw drill bit to the drill, I got my pinky between the bit and the sleeve (why was it still in the sleeve? Don’t ask). It took 4 1/2 hours in the ER at the local hospital to get 4 stitches, te...
