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?

Hot shop

07-09-2011 05:37 PM by Transition | 18 comments »

It gets a little warm in the shop during the summer. So for comfort I wear shorts. What I have found is that, as I work at the lathe, some of the copious amounts of sawdust gathers in the gap between my shoes and socks. With some woods (esp. Black Walnut for me) this is a problem. Mix the sawdust with sweat, grind into my skin over a couple of hours, and I end up with contact dermatitis (itchy, inflamed skin) on my ankles. It’s not serious but it is annoying. So I think I’ve...

Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack #6: It's up, the rack is hanging and Just About Done!!!

11-17-2014 03:15 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 0 comments »

All I have to say is that the rack is up and it is going to create a TON of free space, especially that wall! I am going to be able to get a lathe in there some day instead of having a mess of sheet goods! I added extra storage above the rack too. I have a place to sticker lumber now! Please take a look and leave your comments to let me know what you think!

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...
