Machine set-up #1: Double stack

06-04-2010 01:00 AM by rhett | 3 comments »

An excellent way to increase the speed and efficiency of your shaper when running rails and stiles is to stack your cutters. With the right set-up and coping jig you can quickly switch from rails to stiles and back again with no down time or resetting. It all starts with your cutters and an appropriate width spacer. Here I am using Amana’s mission style combo with a 3/4” spacer in between. More on this later. After finding the spot you want for the groove, run your ...

Barrister Book Case Tutorial #6: Rockler's Barrister Slides

08-30-2009 09:08 PM by Scarcraig01 | 3 comments »

I was going to use Rockler’s Barrister slides because as I mentioned before I’m not very happy with the current set up for how the doors work using the plansnow solution of groves and pins. This solution works alright once you get use to it and it is pretty simple and cost effective, but I was really hopeful that I could get the Rockler hardware to work because it looked like it would have made for a smoother operation. http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=18058&#...

My 21st Century Bench Revisited #1: My 21st Century Revisited

07-17-2010 08:14 PM by fineamerican | 3 comments »

My first attempt at recording my thoughts, hopes and wishes on a work bench have changed and today Ive begun to bring forth my ideas into my shop. One of the things about woodworking as you may have found out for yourself, is sometimes in order to accomplish one goal, along the way your faced with sub tasks if you will that must be completed before the main goal can be reached. For me that was a saw bench. You may wonder why I need a saw bench to build my work bench and the answer is this. My...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #3: Making the Saw Cuts For the Strips

10-05-2008 10:22 PM by lew | 3 comments »

Once the blank has the layout lines drawn, it is time to cut the slots for the ellipses. The first step is to set the blade height. When the cut is made, there should be about 1/8” of material left holding the two sides together. This really aids in the glue up by keeping the pieces aligned. Set the blank on the jig and adjust the angle and the end stop so that the front SHORTER layout line is positioned to the LEFT side of the blade cut. Orientation is when you are standin...

Routing a Sign #1: Setting up the design

09-25-2012 03:07 PM by ~Julie~ | 3 comments »

I make a lot of hand painted signs, but now and then I do a routed sign. They take much longer to complete, but they are just as creative and fun. Someone who saw me at a craft show contacted me to make her a routed sign, so I photographed the process. The finished sign looks like this: Now I’ll explain how the process goes Valerie wanted a basic sign to hang outside that was 18” long. I chose cedar because of it’s ability to last outdoors and I cut a piece...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #5: Arched Candle Holder - On to New Heights

12-21-2009 10:45 PM by sras | 3 comments »

It seems like the arched form needs to be lifted off the table by some amount. I’m not sure by how much. My technique in situations like this is choose from a range. Start with too little and keep adding until it seems like too much. Somehwere in between “too little” and “too much” there should be a “just right” or at least a “close enough”!In this case I start adding spacers underneath each end. Here is the range of heights. The wi...

Building Dave's Stacking Chair #1: Cutting the Wood

07-20-2015 10:58 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

[Legebla ankaĆ­ en Esperanto] This is a step by step ‘tutorial’ for the finished project located here: [link] [Above] I’m using a 1×12 to build this chair, I’m actually building 6 chairs, but just add the plurals where needed. I began by cross cutting the board in half to make it more manageable. [Above] I ripped the board into 3 inch strips. These are pretty much the standard width for most of the pieces. A 2 inch strip is left over, but part of ...

Mobile base for my old Unisaw

08-30-2013 11:18 PM by cpine | 3 comments »

I purchased a 1950 unisaw from a local man about a little more than a year ago. I finally got my 220 circuit in the garage workshop and I really needed mobile base for it. So in this project I build one with some pallet dunnage wood. Please watch and give your comments and likes if possible. Thanks so much. Chris Mobile base for Unisaw

Roy's Mystery Mallet #4: How Small Can You Go?

03-16-2012 02:27 AM by pastorglen | 3 comments »

So I had some extra time on my hands… and I wondered, just how small can you go with this rising dovetail mystery mallet? So I pulled out a piece of 3/4” oak that was sitting around, cut it in half, and started laying out the cuts for a very thin “mallet.” I used a blue pen, which is part of the dark line you see along the joints. (They actually are very tight—tighter than I expected.) I didn’t take a lot of time to in laying it out, and my entire tim...
