Grandma's Picture Frame #2: A first go at the Insert

02-12-2011 03:58 PM by spunwood | 7 comments »

“This molding cutter will not fit my insert for the table saw,” I says to me. So I says, “Let’s make a new one.” “Use some MDF and trace the Zero Clearance Insert you bought from Lee Craft,” says I to me. “yes, and good folk they were.” “Trace the thickness needed” says I.

Grandma's Picture Frame #1: Thinking through the Design & Dimensions

02-09-2011 06:14 PM by spunwood | 1 comment »

My mother suggested that I make a picture frame for my grandmother’s 100th birthday. The party is in march, and the four of us (Stephanie, Beatrice, Elijah, and I) will be flying to New York. I looked online for table saw frames because I do not have much skil with or many bits for a router, and no router table. What I found was: http://americanwoodworker.com/blogs/projects/archive/2009/12/04/tablesaw-picture-frame.aspx This is a lovely and classic frame. The wood is beaut...

More inexpensive shelving

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