Fixing Up a Stanley #6 #1: Doing things the old fashioned way...#1

03-04-2010 07:02 PM by LucasinBC | 1 comment »

I should preface everything I am about to write by saying I am very new to woodworking and so I cannot be looked upon as anything but a beginner; I am no expert so don’t think this is a blog from a pro! A few months ago I embarked on a journey to build a workbench based on a design inspired by Christopher Schwarz’s book “Workbenches.” Specifially I am attempting to build his French-style Roubo bench. Long-story short, I found it difficult to joint and plane the ve...

Using the Leigh D4R

03-04-2010 01:41 PM by grub32 | 13 comments »

I bought the 24 inch D4R dovetail jig recently with the encouragement of my local woodcraft owner. This jig has done everything that he said it would and with more precision than I had expected. I am also surprised at how easy it is to get perfect dovetails every time. I created a video on how easy it is to setup from my experience. I am a hobby woodworker who is trying to make my shop time more efficient. That’s why I broke down and bought the best that I could find. I want this ma...

From Jelly cabinet(Antique Look Jelly Cabinet)From Jelly cabinet(Jelly Cabinet Inside View) I posted this Jelly Cabinet in my projects and was asked to explain how I finished the piece. Thought it would be better to post it here then there.It is Poplar and I usually paint pieces like this but wanted to try something different.I don’t know that I could duplicate the finish on this piece and I’ll do my best to explain how I got the results you see here.My goal was to make the piece look like ...

Mark is a Cabinet and Furniture Making student at the North Bennet Street School in Boston. He had furniture on display at the 60th New England Home Show in Boston. Mark was one of a number of NBSS students that were featured in a booth hosted by NBSS alumni Thomas J. MacDonald from Thomas J. MacDonald Fine Woodworking and The 207 Woodworking Community. Mark also put on an excellent pen turning demonstration which he kindly allowed me to video. I am sure you will agree he is a dynamic a...

How I made the Snack Tote

03-01-2010 03:47 AM by LafayetteJack | 0 comments »

I have had some questions about how I made the bowls I posted in the Projects area. I thought a Blog entry would be the best way to respond. This one is for the Snack Tote. I created my own paper template based on the Wood magazine plan but sized to fit the 10” x 10” piece of wood I had. Each bowl of the snack tote is 4” in diameter and 1-7/8” deep. Placing the paper template on a 1/2” piece of MDF I used a circle cutter and made an Inside template. I creat...

Sanders

02-28-2010 06:58 AM by kosta | 3 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a blog post on sanders because I have gotten a lot of questions about them. There are basically 3 sizes of sanders hand sanders, benchtop sanders, and stationary sanders. Hand sanders include palm sanders, random orbit sanders or ROS, detail sanders, and belt sanders. Palm sanders vibrate back and forth and you can get in corners with them because the bottom of the sander is a square shape. Random orbit sanders spin and vibrate and you get a really polishe...

Old School Mortised in Butt Hinge #4: The Montage: part two the Fixing

02-27-2010 06:05 PM by Waldschrat | 2 comments »

Door fits, hinges ready, so far we’re smiling! everything 5 by 5 Now, we just have to fix those hinges. Yes, now accuracy is of greatest importance. This is the time where we have one shot (again!). So we have to insert the hinges again and turn the door on its face (the outside) so we are looking at the rebate side. We then using a pencil make a mark on the back side how far the hinges need to be, take the hinge out and line up the mark with the edge of the frame (inside). ...

Old School Mortised in Butt Hinge #3: The Montage: part one the Fitting

02-27-2010 04:59 PM by Waldschrat | 5 comments »

The Montage, (building in and mounting for those who are curious what “Montage” means) of a butt hinge door. I like to use the word Montage, because it comes off the lips easier and is a great general term used to describe, all “on site” work, mounting, fixing, cleaning up , whatever necessary to complete the build in. Just a personal thing probably… anyway, this is about mouting in, aligning and fixing the door with a butt hinge. In the last blog we covered...

Adventures in Starting a New business #1: Before the beginning

02-27-2010 03:54 PM by TwistedRedneck | 2 comments »

Well, been thinking about it and now I think it is time to take that first step. Pimping woodworking skills out that is. I have had experience owning and running my own business as a Truck Driver and my parents have experience owning and operating a multi county Ambulance service so I think I have the knowledge that is needed to start a new venture like this. I found a book at Goodwill specifically for making money with woodworking that I read and it helped supercharge my desire to follow ...
