Machinist Toolcart #11: Almost there. The end of all marking and cutting

09-12-2011 05:48 AM by PurpLev | 20 comments »

We had a beautiful weekend, blue clear sky, sun shining and smiling, birds were singing, even the temperature was behaving – just a beautiful weekend. and I was sick. I waited until I could regain enough focus since loss of focus in woodworking is a bad idea and can only lead to disastrous consequences either to the project or worse to ones self and trotted to the garage only to find that the material I had planned to use didn’t look all that fitting to the purpose of acting...

Cabinet Progress #15: Slow Progress

11-11-2007 04:53 AM by gizmodyne | 20 comments »

Before I install the dishwasher panel I need to fit a piece of trim to cover the mortar bed. So back to the wood pile. I need 11 feet of trim so I pulled a 12 footer from my stash and began the resaw process. First: Metal detector boogie and pull nails. (About 50 this time) Getting ready to resaw. Tiny Shop! Resawing: My outfeed support. Planer cleanup. Unfortunately a knot blew out, so I am going to have to scarf two pieces. Trim stock. Ran out of steam. It is c...

MDB #4: The Age of the Machines - Final milling and profiling

08-02-2010 03:43 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here Once everything was glued up into a single slab, it was time to plane it flat and parallel. one of the strips I jointed happen (don’t ask me how…lol) to be jointed off square, throwing the last 4-5 strips in the glueup off flat (mostly flat). I was tired at this point, and just figured I’m not going to rejoint it, but will pay the price and plane it all down at the cost of having a...

The Flip Side of Woodworking...

04-07-2008 09:25 PM by jcees | 14 comments »

Okay, here’s one of the most useful jigs that I’ve ever made. And if I lost i tomorrow, I could build another in about fifteen minutes. I’m not going to include any dimensions as you should make one to fit your own situation. I made this up obviously with scraps. If I made it out of anything else, it wouldn’t work any better. When I build things there’s always some small parts in need of a little fitting. Viola! I frequently use this #7 r...

2nd Saw ??

09-18-2010 11:04 PM by majeagle1 | 13 comments »

I don’t believe that this subject has been brought up or not before but as I go throught the many processes of making boxes, there are times when I hate to disrupt or change the settings on my table saw ( blade angle to be exact ) and wish that I had a 2nd saw. I know that many of you have both a table saw and miter saw but do any of you have a “2nd saw” like a smaller trim saw / table top saw for cutting smaller, more detailed pieces and maybe different angles? It sure does...

Hanging Homemade Crown Molding: Suffering Through Mistakes & Learning Life's Lessons.

02-19-2007 06:29 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 11 comments »

I wanted to tell a little more about my experience with crafting my own crown molding, and share a couple of lessons I learned along the way. Previously, I showed how I formed and sanded the profile on the last blog of this topic, and so today I thought I would complete the task by showing the installation of the molding, and a few “gems” I discovered along the way. First off, I made very sure that my cabinet that I am hanging this crown molding on was as perfectly square on...

Almost nowBefore I get to the current work on the kitchen, let’s play catch-up.: After a successful but expensive run on the living room and dining room we decided to keep on with the back of the house. We had two rooms to strip/stain and replaster/paint. Plus the L-shaped hallway. I will let the pictures do the talking. DenThe den before (why did I paint it like this?).. During plaster work and with windows stripped. Turns out the casements had been replaced. They look lik...

Skill Building #6: The Stanley #45 Multiplane and Door Trim

12-23-2011 09:55 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 7 comments »

Okay, added a wall to define my shop space for heating, etc. and included a pair of pocket doors. They’re framed but need trim. Enter some spaulted (stained, really), flat-sawn sycamore. Dressed the edges and faces, needed something to dress them up a bit. How about a bead? First the flat stock, ready to go. With the #45 set up and ready, an early key is to take multiple, shallow passes. Here’s a scratch pass: Start on the end of the piece, taking multiple passes ...
