Routing the miter slots deeper

01-11-2015 04:40 PM by TheFridge | 4 comments »

So to start with. The miter slots on my saw were shallow from routing the table top flat. I finally decided last night to setup my incra 1000hd for this saw, but in order to do that, I needed to rout the right slot deeper. Ill get around to the left eventually, but the right slot will pretty much be the incra’s new home. I used the same 10$ ryobi router and HF router speed control I used on the top, and just used the fence as a guide. I started with a 1/4” straight bit an...

In the light #3: Precision sizing and clean-up of pattern pieces

08-04-2013 02:56 PM by BritBoxmaker | 6 comments »

When I left you I was just about to cut all the pattern pieces. Well I did this successfully and cut all the pieces 2 mm longer than necessary, to allow for clean-up. With pieces 6 mm x 3 mm its very difficult to avoid split out on the cut, even with an 80 tooth cross cut blade. The two mm allows for precision sizing as well. First to clean up the 45° ends. Here’s my belt sander, 915 mm x 100 mm belt. 180 grit for this job. Surrounded by the usual clutter. The mitre gauge for ...

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...

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?

L-Shaped Desk #5: Legs, snipe, joints, finish and a clever (I think) 45 degree angle jig!

08-07-2017 02:38 AM by SauceMan | 2 comments »

Hey, It’s been forever since I’ve posted. I’ll keep the words minimal and show my progress as a set of images as much as possible. That should make scrolling through this blog post pretty quick. First, I really need to work on cutting. I now have a 5 HP table saw (or is it a 3 HP saw pretending to be 5?) and a brand new blade, but I get serious burns. That’s what you see on the left of the top-most leg up there. But there they are, 6 legs ready to go! ...

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...

Things go wrong with the finishing process. I don’t get it figured out on this video, but I keep trying and trying. I go through the finish process, then strip it because I was not happy and start again. View on YouTube
