The Flip Side of Woodworking...

2328 days ago 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...

Greg Here is the finished product finally…....................

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

2741 days ago 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...

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

973 days ago 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 ...

The Kerry-All Pouch is going to be on tv !!

1553 days ago by Wood_smith | 3 comments »

...alas, only on local cable, but a good start.. Our local cable television company has a local interest tv ‘magazine’ show. They shot a video clip of the Kerry-All Pouches Friday at a local building supply dealer. This dealer has been instrumental in helping me launch the various versions of the Pouch, including the original Plywood Pouch, the long and narrow Trim Pouch as well as an 8-foot Drywall Pouch, or cover and a 12-foot model. They’ve tried prototypes and given m...

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

1481 days ago 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...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #6: Trim

474 days ago by DustyMark | 0 comments »

TrimChests and wardrobes benefit greatly from the added visual detail of trim applied at the top of the case. Watch this video to see how I cut the cove for the trim on my Dr. White’s chest. Trim after application and prior to final sanding. Out-of-focus shot of the temporary fence set-up I used to make the cove cut. Be sure that your clamps have a good hold. Often, the areas under or near the edge of the table saw are difficult to attain a good clamp hold. NOTE: Years ago,...

Stopped by a job we did today..

2166 days ago by CraftsmanCollective | 4 comments »

Well, I got a call from a developer we do finish trim design and installs for and he asked me to contact the new owner of one of the homes they built that we did all the finish trim inside. Got a chance to snap a few more pics real quick so I thought I’d add them to the blog. Heres the DiningRoom Pillars, I thought they needed a crown head but the owner wanted to be cheap…sigh.. This next one is of some Alder Beams we did in the Family Room. Heres a shot of the Mas...
