Fuming a Small Box With Household Ammonia #1: After Four Days of Exposure

09-18-2014 12:49 AM by Roger Kimmel | 8 comments »

The box hasn’t darkened appreciably over the past two days, so I put in fresh ammonia in a slightly bigger saucer to give it more surface area. Here’s a funny thing. It felt like the box was damp to the touch. The lid just lies in a rabbet in the sides, and the wood had swollen so much that it was jammed in tight! It really has been picking up moisture. I don’t know if this is due to the fuming reaction, or if it is just a consequence of having the box suspended ove...

A Jig that worked well for me

02-12-2010 06:37 AM by danr | 11 comments »

Hello, OK, I figured out the picture thing. Most of the photos are cropped off on the right side (as the instructions said they would be). Next time I will take this into account when taking the pics…..... Just wanted to post a quick blog to show a new jig that I have built to cut spline slots for a Greene and Greene table top (i.e. the bread-board ends). I have seen a few ways to do this here on this site and other places (thanks to all LumberJocks for all of the great ideas I ha...

Give a dog (hole) a bone

12-18-2011 07:08 AM by OneDizzyDevil | 0 comments »

I have trying to find cheap inserts for my dog holes but dang they are relativly expensive when you need several of them. So, I found something a dog hole clamp that I really liked that was not plastic; however, they were rather expensive (Veritas Clamps) at ~45 bucks a pair. Well I am a cheap skate so no way in the world I was going to pay that so I decided to make my own. I had a lot of the equipment already like a tap and die set and the drill press which makes it a thousand time easi...

Woodworking with Abrasives - Provocative Teaser Article by Andrew Crawford in British Woodworking

06-17-2011 08:54 PM by Steven Davis | 3 comments »

I found out about Andrew Crawford via an article somewhere here at Lumerjocks. For those who don’t know, he is a master box maker.

In the article, Mr. Crawford argues that abrasives have evolved rapidly in recent decades and should be part of the toolkit of any woodworker, not just for finishing and p...
