Making of the weaved box

I am doing the second box. Luckily, photos can be taken to minimize explaining. Making of Hinges and also the top. The box is nearly complete so I will start on what is to be done.The hinge is made up of wood that I had a slot made independently then glued some pieces back in place. One of the black hinge was broken so I need to replace that… You can also see the middle part of the hinge have an offset insert. Remove the pin then complete the missing ebony. Let the p...

Stool II, the making of a Cabriole leg

01-28-2016 07:11 PM by Lazy_K | 2 comments »

Because someone asked… making a cabriole leg, either round or squared isn’t nearly as hard as some think. First: make up your pattern…then draw it on the side and front of your leg stock. then proceed to cut it out ;)If you have a bandsaw, start on one side, leave a little (1/4”) uncut at the bottom of the cuts, so you’ll need to cut in from both ends. cut all of the cuts on this side like this, if there is an area on the “underside” (side a...

From Scraps to Strips. What are the available woods that are needed? They are unlimited in terms of target dimension which is a rhombus of 30×60 deg with width of 1 inch. Aside from this I need to check on the blend of colors that are classified according to dark darker darkest.. So I will use the narra stocks that I have plenty. The scrap 2×6 Narra parquet with varying thickness. These are the previous flooring used in our office. Therefore, two pieces ...

Odds 'N' Ends #4: Pallet Wood De-Nailer

01-25-2016 09:54 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

This is by far my most popular video on Youtube. Funny thing is that I almost didn’t upload it because I didn’t think anyone would be interested. I was wrong. From my channel: Getting the nails out of pallet wood can be the most time-consuming part of salvaging the wood. The pallets I have come apart pretty easily, so I wanted to find a faster, easier way to get the nails out. This is what I came up with… Pallet Wood De-Nailer

Ugh, the woes of learning new video editing software. The footage of the whole point of this video was lost. I feel like I still was able to get my point across in the video, but it definitely isn’t my best work. I am releasing a few of these shorter videos this week as I learn how to use Premeire. Please bear with me. I hope you find this video to be useful.Enjoy! Seal Up A Drafty Door

Dust Collection #5: Remote Start for Dust Collector

01-22-2016 03:56 AM by ThomasLightle | 6 comments »

I hate having to maneuver around the shop to turn on my dust collectors. A lot of times I don’t remember until I have the cut all lined up and ready to go. I hope this small modification will make things a little more convenient.In the post-Christmas clearance, I found a set of Christmas light remote switches. I checked them out and they were rated for 120v and 15A, so I decided to try them out on my equipment. They were around $7, so it wasn’t a big gamble. I like how it tur...

Wood Trip!! #1: gotta love craigslist!

01-22-2016 02:01 AM by Phil | 9 comments »

Today I made a long trip(and I mean only 50 miles each way) to Chicago to a custom cabinet shop named Vero Designs to buy some lumber scraps. When I saw the ad online I was intrigued ad sent an email out. I told him that I am new to woodworking and was looking for end grain cutting board material. The guy Quinn told me he had bundles of lumber which were mostly hard maple and walnut with some wenge and sapele. I ended up getting all of it! I feel that I got a great deal with over 100 bd ft fo...
