How to make coved raised panel doors on your TS

11-17-2014 02:29 PM by Jake | 10 comments »

Hey all. First, thanks a lot to oluf who gave me a tip on how to use silicone instead of spaceballs to keep the panels form rattling. Secondly, this is going to be a long one, so bare with me if interested, if not, no big deal. :) Raised panel doors are very rare in Europe, so I will have a very posh kitchen when it’s all said and done, so I am very glad. The door with flat inset panels (as classic Euro doors are) looks plain crap when compared to the raised panel one, I know that, s...

Musical Instruments Restoration #8: Violin 2 - Jig for the ribs on action

07-15-2013 05:17 AM by BertFlores58 | 4 comments »

Took me a little while to do the steel work on the jig. Have to make the somewhat C-clamp with push block. Cutting threaded bars and looking for the nuts. Shaping the push blocks (made from ebony) become tiresome after making 16 pieces. These are made from scraps. Here are some self explanatory photos… I give notes on some important aspects and ideas that you can grab suited for your project and availability of materials: Notes: 1) The piece that was bended was narra ripped by ...

Beall Polishing System #1: Beall System, Versatile.

12-03-2013 02:05 AM by PASs | 10 comments »

I got a Beall system a few years ago.I started with the 3 circular pads.I liked it so much I also got the 3 polishing balls to do inside bowls.I also got an old motor for $2.00 at a garage sale so I could have a dedicated polishing setup.The motor is plugged in to an outlet box under the end of the bench. The receptacle it’s plugged into is controlled by a switch also under the end of the bench. The other receptacle is unswitched for plugging the other equipment in when needed. The outl...

Clamping a large molding miter

02-26-2013 04:39 PM by Don "Dances with Wood" Butler | 2 comments »

I’ve been making frames from moldings for years, but my usual methods failed to be up for the challenge of mitering three and a half inch wide moldings.Somewhere in the past I had used this method and forgotten it. I just use bits from the scrap bin, a couple of straight pieces and a couple of 45º triangles to make up the blocks clamped onto the moldings. That gives me a place to clamp directly across the miter. This method doesn’t require clamping the moldings to the bench...

Fatigue Mats

01-23-2011 12:47 AM by WoodArtbyJR | 13 comments »

Not sure if this belongs in a “Review” or “Blog” heading so I’ll place it here. Fatigue mats, you don’t think about them much unless you stand on a hard floor all day (and even then you probably think about them). I purchased a fatigue mat from our beloved Rockler a couple of years ago and loved it. It was sent to me rolled up and took about a year before it would lay flat. Still, working in front of my lath for hours at a time I found that it was a GRE...

Improvised Magnetic Vise Cheeks

06-29-2013 07:24 PM by DonGriffith | 2 comments »

While my basement shop continues to grow (much to the chagrin of my wife, who thinks this whole “woodworking thing” is just a phase I’m going through), it is still a pretty tight space. I’m thus always on the look-out for devices that lend themselves to portability and, preferably, affordability. In that vein, I recently picked up a small 6” portable “carpenter’s vise” at Harbor Freight. Now, I know many of you more seasoned woodworkers may thumb your nose at ol’ HF, but for cheapos like m...
