Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #5: Sliding Door Issues!

08-22-2010 05:22 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

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...

Boiled Linseed Oil #1: Boiled Linseed Oil

08-15-2010 07:01 AM by falegniam | 12 comments »

I found this bit of helpful information in a magazine, and just wanted to share. Dip a rag in a container of boiled Linseed Oil, and wipe it onto a sanded tool handle (shovel handle was shown).Let the oil soak in for a few minutes. The wipe it off the excess with a dry rag. I haven’t tried this, but I’m thinking it might work on cutting boards, and butcher blocks as well.

Mounting Live Edge Turning

08-14-2010 07:39 PM by scrappy | 11 comments »

Just thought I would post a little blog on how I mount a Live Edge Turning in order to finish off the bottom of the piece. When starting your tun, you can use a turning plate or chuck to hold the bottom and turn the outside and inside. But when you want to finish off the piece, that live edge doesn’t give you anywhere to grip. I saw one of these mounts in the WoodTurnersCatalog.com Mine is a LOT cheesier design, but only cost penny’s to make. Started with a scrap of wood, a ...

Am I just picky or what?

08-14-2010 01:22 AM by Dez | 2 comments »

I realize I am a picky little sucker but am I over the line on this or am I wrong in the way I see this?From the http://www.garymkatz.com/trimtechniques/hiddenpivotbookcaseinstall.htm Edgebanding plywood shelvingI’ve done a lot of edgebanding and always hated the hair-line crack that develops between the plywood and the solid stock. That gap is caused by the inner plywood endgrain_ swelling from the glue, which puts a little belly in the edge and forces the banding away from top and bottom...

The 5 minutes Sled

08-13-2010 09:10 PM by Gabe | 2 comments »

Hi everyone! Just starting out, and already, I’m running out of money :P Thought I’d share this quick tip someone gave me. Never forget that if you have a festool MFT/3, you always have a convenient way of making a sled with scraps in little to no time. Sled is 3/4 mdf, then just use some clamps on the side of the table to get the bottom rail. Upper rail is easy to do with the MFT/3 accessories. From Woodworking From Woodworking Cheers! Looking forward to doing proje...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #4: Carcass Installed

08-13-2010 06:44 AM by RonPeters | 4 comments »

Here’s the carcass installed. I oiled it the same as the bench. Sanded it a little to knock off the fuzz. I didn’t finish it all out as this is just a box for storage. Next is to make the door for the left side and drawers for the right The vise is completed. It has about a 3” throat because the dog block thickness is also about 3”. It probably should be closer to the left edge, but I don’t plan to be cutting anything – got a chop saw for that. Mo...

Adjustable angle jig

08-06-2010 03:33 AM by Jeff | 1 comment »

Been wrestling with the problem of how to cut the miter angles on a curved top panel to a carcass with uneven side heights. The big problem are the curved nature of the panel and the fact that the angles are acute (past the 45 degree stop) and different on each side. Ended up building this adjustable jig. The slotted base lets me adjust distance from the blade, and the friction chest lid hardware the angle. I inked a line on the saw table with an ultra-fine Sharpie by registering a str...

Thinking about my LumberJocks blog

08-04-2010 02:11 PM by Don "Dances with Wood" Butler | 7 comments »

After finishing a design for a client which involved a graphic header for his emails, I got thinking in my normally obsessive way about other graphic heads. Then I got thinking about my own emails. Then I wanted to go one step beyond what I had just finished.So I designed an animated gif for my email header.That was sort of fun.Then I thought about other ways to use this sort of thing.Naturally, I had to go to the LJ blog.Using a header for a blog is done, not by many, but it works.So I did w...
