New To Woodworking #2: Setup

02-08-2010 01:33 AM by Requiem | 2 comments »

G’day everyone, I really would like to thank everyone that posted a comment on my very first blog. I was really overwhelmed by the response of friendship and good hearted people that offered to help me if I needed it which was displayed on Lumberjocks community. I also wanted thank Svaabeck for helping me get my finger out. I am sorry it has taken so long to post another entry but I was taken in by woodworking, once I received my Incra gear and had set it up I got sucked into it. I unders...

Double Dovetail Box #6: The End

02-07-2010 09:05 AM by Don | 5 comments »

The box is almost done. First thing I did today was cut the top to fit. I inititially cut it the same size as the box but decided to cut it a bit smaller so that the corners would show through which I thought gave it a nicer look. I also rabbited the under side of the top a bit to hold it in place. I generallly like lift off lids better than hinged lids for a couple of reasons: I think the metal of a hinge can distract from the beauty of the wood, and I’m too lazy to go buy the hinges. ...

Repairing/Upgrading HF Bar Clamp

02-06-2010 07:11 AM by HungryTermite | 3 comments »

I wrote a review on these HF Bar Clamps and I gave them a good review based mostly on the cost. At basically 6 for the price of 1 better clamp, they would have to achieve an impressive failure rate for me not to like them. That said, I had one fail within the 1st week of owning it. Rather than return it and get a new clamp that would suffer the same flaw, I realized I could fix it and upgrade the other ones I bought to fix the problem for about another $1, which still makes them very c...

Steady as she goes

02-03-2010 08:59 PM by toyguy | 9 comments »

For some time now I have thought about making myself a steady rest….. So, today I did just that. Plans for these type of rest are abundant on the inter-web. I read a couple of construction articles, then went to the shop to see what I ended up with. One very good article can be found here: Steady Rest PDF PDF Constructed of 3/4” ply, hard maple and some wheels off some casters. I had wanted to use in line Rollerblade wheels, but none could be had that were with-in my budget....

Better photos

02-02-2010 08:30 AM by Andy | 26 comments »

I know this isnt a photography site, but since we all shoot pictures of our projects I thought I might share a few tips with you.I often get asked how I go about getting my boxes to look good…besides the woodworking I mean. Feel free to add your tips this blog. I shoot with a Canon 20D and a 17-85 Image Stabilized lens, but most cameras now are plenty good and will do fine as long as you take the time to understand how to get the most out of it. I typically use a tripod and set...

Double Dovetail Box #5: Assembling the box and Starting the top

02-01-2010 07:52 AM by Don | 4 comments »

Everything about the double dovetail joint is complete. I hope it was cear enough for folks to make their own. Feel free to bug me with questions if you didn’t follow. In summary, it’s just a bunch of half blind joints using a corner piece with the grain perpendicular to the sides. From here on out it’s just another box but I’ll continue to post shots as I go. Yesterday I lightly sanded the shellac that I previously applied to the inside surfaces of all pieces. Then...
