Ambrosia-birdseye maple #4: Now I have a box

11-19-2011 04:14 PM by JoeyG | 5 comments »

So first I sanded up the bottom detail using a drum sander on my ancient drill press next I cut the dado for the bottom to set in. I don’t have a dado blade so I just make multiple passes on the table saw. After that is done, I move on to sand the inside of the box. Since it is nearly impossible to do after the box is together this is the perfect time to do it. Now it’s just a little glue and some tape. I have found that with boxes this small tape is more than enou...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #2: You NEED this mini-cabinet maker's bench! (Part 2)

11-18-2011 09:29 PM by StumpyNubs | 23 comments »

The camera comes back into the Stumpy Nubs Workshop to further document life in a small semi-professional shop… Includes tips on hand cut dovetails, utility chisels, resawing wide boards on the table saw, glue-ups, and a lot more! This is part 2 of Episode 1. It begins with making the CN Box, then continues the “amazing mini-cabinet marker’s bench”. My favorite part is the footage on cutting tiny dovetails by hand, big ones by machine, and huge ones with a hon...

Ambrosia-birdseye maple #3: Bottom Detail

11-18-2011 05:01 AM by JoeyG | 0 comments »

Here I have laid out a design for the bottom detail that I liked, cut it out with my jig saw, and finished up with a 1” drum sander on my drill press. I have a few more boxes to do this to but hopefully I will have a box to show how tomorrow. I am also going to try to remember to take pictures of each step. Thanks for taking a look.

Ambrosia-birdseye maple #2: Pieces milled and cut

11-17-2011 01:15 AM by JoeyG | 1 comment »

So here is the next phase in the early life of a box. After straight lining one of the boards and cutting to a rough length for my project, I split the board in half. I usually go for 3/8 or a little larger but since these boards were already surfaced I couldn’t make them thicker. LOL. I ended up a little proud of 5/16 thick. I know a lot of people make there boxes 3/4 thick but this way works better for me. I will add to the interior once the lid is sized and everything is...

Ambrosia-birdseye maple #1: The Boards

11-17-2011 12:43 AM by JoeyG | 6 comments »

I went to the lumberyard the other day with a detailed list of what I needed to complete my Christmas orders. Then I go and find this. Needless to say I did not get everything on my list, since every penny was accounted for. I will be making the 2 hour round trip to pick up the remainder of my list soon, but I could not pass this up. Coming in at $20, I got two boards 6” X 72” and surfaced to 13/16. I normally buy in the rough and mill it down myself (I like the sur...

Projects in process. . . #6: Roubo try square part two

11-14-2011 08:09 PM by need2boat | 3 comments »

I’ve been out side the shop doing some other things like yard work and little fall camping, plus I was waiting on the dowel plate from LN.That said this weekend I found some time this weekend. The over process I’m flowing is based on a few articles found online on the making of a try square. The first one was completely by hand and the other a bit more power tool friendly. I’m splitting the difference. ;-) I left off in the first post with the parts made and ready to be joined....
