10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #11: |Step 10| Learn how to Finish the Wood

04-15-2014 05:01 PM by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

Step 10 is one of my favorite steps, because you get to see the true beauty reveal itself in the wood, and the grain patterns shine forth! I’ll admit it, I’m not one of those woodworkers who love complex finish recipes, but I love making it as simple as possible. In the above video I introduced quite a few of the well-known finishes used by woodworkers (there’s probably a lot more) but I encourage everyone to experiment and find out which finishes they like the best. My favorite, easies...

Custom Cabinet Construction #4: Where planes soar in a modern shop

05-23-2013 02:00 AM by rhett | 2 comments »

As of late, I have been helping a local cabinet maker get caught up on some work. Nothing fantastic, basic kitchen and bath cabinetry. Spending a few hours a week, building boxes in my shop while he works on the doors/drawers down the hill. Perfect opportunity for extra income to help get the planes flying. It’s also an excellent opportunity to document where old technology still wins in some parts of the modern shop. Let me show you two of the bigger steps in basic cabinetry and...

Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy #7: Lets hollow out that drawer.

05-15-2009 03:44 PM by JonH | 2 comments »

While the body of the Bandsaw Box is drying, you can work on the drawer. Cut ¼” to ½” off the front and back of the drawer. Make sure you label the pieces so they go back together properly. We will then cut out the piece left over in the middle to create the cavity for the drawer. This can be anything you want, but it basically creates the amount of storage space in your drawer. It could be square or curved, but with a bandsaw you could accomplish nearly anything for this task. Just mak...

More inexpensive shelving

02-05-2011 11:32 PM by devann | 2 comments »

I know, more cheap shelves. Let’s face it, most of us would rather buy tools not shelves. With that in mind here is a shlef that only requires 2×4s, 1/2” plywood, wood screws,& some nuts,bolts, & washers. I have seen quite a few of your workshops out there, And a lot of you have metal buildings with C or Z purlins to columns type metal building construction. So this will be the kind of drawing that I’m posting today. You can apply the same principles to a buildi...

Alternate Drawer Joinery #2: Routing the drawer front

01-30-2010 05:56 PM by DanW | 2 comments »

Now I have the following items.1. Router table with a 3/4” pattern bit installed in the router.2. Drawer front3. Drawer sides4. Router template/jig Using your template and drawer side stacked, adjust the bit height so that the cut is a 1/64” too deep (if I set it flush I end up unsatisfied with the fit) Set the template on the end of the drawer front with the best grain towards the template fence . Then center the front so that the teeth (for lack of a better term) are even,...

Sewing Center #7

03-23-2009 03:30 AM by robbi | 2 comments »

I worked on this last weekend but didn’t post anything because all I got done were the feet. The plans to this thing are kind of lame. The legs are only two sided with a 15 degree bevel on them. I really had to just guess on everything, they gave you dimensions, but that was it, didn’t tell you about the bevels or anything, if you just did everything square, nothing fit, so I just tweeked it myself. I started on the doors last weekend too, but discovered I had a problem with...

So you want to go pro #16: MORE WEB NEWS

04-22-2008 04:11 PM by odie | 2 comments »

I forgot to bring you all up to date. How you get noticed by Google and Yahoo is called “meta names”. These names are embedded in code in your web site on each page. Google and Yahoo! use crawlers to find and read these meta “tags”. They use them to pick where and in what categories your site is listed. I now have a program that lets me go in and change and add to my “meta names”. The problem, I found out, is that .mac doesn’t allow for this. There...
