Double Dovetail Box #2: Cutting the first set of dovetails

1660 days ago by Don | 2 comments »

I’m not planning on going into all the gory details about how to cut the dovetails, that would be a lengthy blog by itself and it’s highly dependant on your choice of jigs or hand tools. I use a Porter Cable Omnijig but I’m sure any jig capable of making a half blind dovetail will suffice. If there’s enough requests then I may do another blog on that or could go into more detail on this one. Step 1: Clean up the glue from the boards that you glued the corner pieces ...

Double Dovetail Box #1: Milling the parts.

1661 days ago by Don | 7 comments »

A1Jim suggested I post a blog to describe how I did the double dovetail Joint I used on my Spalted Mango Box so here it goes. I hope people find this helpful and if you have questions please post them and I’ll do my best to answer them. I also greatly appreciate feedback on anything. I was going to show how to make the joint using some scrap wood but since it’s just as much work as using good wood so I decided I may as well use good wood and build a whole box. I’ll be pre...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #15: Cutting rings for bases.

1664 days ago by degoose | 20 comments »

For the last few days at the end of last year ….LOL…I was very busy… I was designing a recessed base for my Lazy Larrys..I have just taken the time to post this….To start I have cut a circle of 5/8” plywood to mount the bearing.. this is roughly 300 mm or 12” in diameter as seen to the left in the first pic.This is accomplished by using the router to drill a hole in the centre.. the same size as the pin in the table. The hole is dropped over the pin and th...

Storage for this old house... #1: The design....

1667 days ago by RichClark | 3 comments »

We have an old house and there is not place to put anything…. Our closets are tiny our rooms are cluttered with chests and junk, the stairways have chests and piled on junk. The reason for this is that A/C or Heat was not invented when the house was constructed. So we pile up towels and sheets and such in several trunks and chests that while they are pretty(I made them) the are unpractical. Thus we start Sandi’s Crhistmass present ! SO. in that light I was tasked to build ...

Tablesaw upgrades

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a blog post on some tablesaw upgrades. Now it doesnt matter what kind of tablesaw you have. The first thing you want to do is upgrade your fence and miter gauge for the fence you should look at the bisemeyer fences. For the miter gauge look at the incra miter gauges. You dont have to upgrade to the bisemeyer fence or the incra miter gauge but you should definitely upgrade if you dont your just gonna get pissed and end up upgrading later. Now something that...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #6: Arched Candle Holder - Wrap up

1669 days ago by sras | 1 comment »

I fell behind on this a bit with the holidays (plus a bit of a headcold). I guess I’ll start out with a follow up detail from the last entry. Lisa (aka dustbunny) complemented me on the compound miters (Thanks Lisa!). I have to confess that they did not turn out that way right after glueing up. After I smoothed the rough edges, a few of the corners were not lined up right. In addition to the mis match, you can also see there is a slight chip in the lacewood at the bottom. Luckily...
