Ambrosia-birdseye maple #9: handle, lid, and finishing the inside

12-12-2011 01:49 PM by JoeyG | 3 comments »

Above you see the handles attached. After deciding the general shape of the handle and the location I drilled holes and inserted dowels, then glued them up Next I slide the nails back into place and mark where the handle falls on the side of the box. Once the area that needs to be removed for the handle is marked I use a flush cutting saw (my best cutting saw) a coping saw, and a sharp chisel to remove the material Then I reinsert the nails and check for a good f...

Obelisks #1: Cutting Process

12-11-2011 10:06 PM by Jim Jakosh | 10 comments »

Obelisks are fun and easy to make and great use of wood from a project that would otherwise be discarded. I made a few and have had some LJ’s ask how I do it, so I thought I’ll take a few pictures and save a few thousand words. I start with a rectangular block with a square base. I find the center on one end and draw line from that center to the corners at the other end. I bandsaw down the lines being careful to always stay outside the line. It is better for finish sanding than a...

Unorthodox Bandsaw Box #1: Box making steps

12-11-2011 09:42 PM by Jim Jakosh | 28 comments »

My wife asked me when I was going to make her a box to keep our business cards in when we travel. I had made a few boxes but never one upon request- especially from her. So I wanted this to be special. I went about making a bandsaw box in an unconventional way and I was having a problem with the hinge design. One night I had a dream of how to do it and wrote it down right away in the morning. Here are the steps I used to make the box using mainly the bandsaw and the scroll saw for one tough p...

Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #4: Making the handle and finishing the tote

12-06-2011 02:30 AM by ~Julie~ | 9 comments »

Now that we have the size of the handle piece, the actual handle has to be cut out of it.For now I keep the piece as a rectangle, and will do the angled sides after the handle is cut out. I’m using my router and a template guide to remove the area for the handle. First I need to make a template out of hardboard that is 11/32” larger than the actual size of the oval hole that I want. I determined a hole 3 1/2” long and 1 1/8” wide for the handle would be good for t...

Weekend Pen Box

12-06-2011 01:17 AM by Owlcroft | 17 comments »

Weekend Pen Box I got the idea for this pen box from a friend. I was at his house looking at a commemorative pen he was given for retirement and was impressed with the design of the pen box. I took some pictures and spent a couple days figuring out how I could make my own. Below are picture of my friends pen box. The box turned out to be fairly easy to build once I took a good look at it. I took a couple minutes to determine exactly how It was made; then I was ready to start. Ba...

Ambrosia-birdseye maple #8: Attching the lid

12-05-2011 07:18 PM by JoeyG | 6 comments »

First I tape blocks in that I have sized for the position I want the lid to sit I then tape the lid in place. Next is to mark out and drill for the hinge pins I think the pictures show my process fairly well. If you have any questions or suggestions please leave them and hopefully we will all learn a little from each other. Next stop is get the lids opening correctly and then handles. Thanks for taking a look.
