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...

Adirondack Chairs #1: Halfway into the White Oak version

09-17-2013 12:16 AM by Jacob C. Heffelfinger | 1 comment »

This is the first entry in this series, but I’m already halfway into the White Oak version of my Rockler Adirondack chair. I’m also building a Western Red Cedar version, but haven’t started dimensioning the boards yet. I’m starting the blog at this point in the project, because 1. I wasn’t a member of LJ before starting the project and 2. I need to get my thoughts down about what I’ve learned so far, because this is really my first TRUE hardwood project...

Calling all Hand Plane Restoration Experts

06-15-2013 12:10 PM by DouginVa | 5 comments »

This will be my first go at restoring a wooden bodied hand plane. In the pics you’ll see it’s an older Stanley wooden bodied plane that is rusted up pretty bad. I can handle the rust issue with electrolysis like I’ve done many times before. As I’m typing this there are parts in the bath and last night I did the iron/blade….which is pitted pretty bad. But what concerns me are the checks in the wooden body and layers of gunk built up on the wood. In your...

Anyone have a brass pin hardware website recommendation?

09-12-2009 12:10 AM by TomTinkerSum | 8 comments »

I was looking at Woodcraft and online for some brass pins for boxes, knife kits, etc…. I not only was unable to find anything at Woodcraft, but they were unable to order anything for me regarding this or even point me in the right direction. I know this probably should go in the forum section. I tried and it did not show up under Hardware section. I need these pins for building boxes for the gents in my wedding party and the Dads. Your support would be highly appreciated for recommendat...

Rope Carvings

03-24-2015 06:09 PM by Luke Addington | 2 comments »

I prepared some rope samples a few weeks ago for a client meeting. Here’s the process I used: Layout Part I. Video for Part I of the layout process. I mark the centers of the square portions at either end of the turning. I line my ruler up with the two points and bend it down slightly so it touches the column. Then I mark a short center line on the column itself. I do that on all four sides. Then I take some painters tape and line up the centers the same way I did with the ruler, ...
