Charles Neil build along mahogany lowboy "series" #11: week

06-07-2010 07:33 AM by a1Jim | 33 comments »

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, #11 When I left you, back in installment # 8, I had just finished cutting out and installing the scroll board. The next step is to mill out the drawer dividers. First, make sure that both sides of the scroll board measure an equal distance, down from the top of the legs. After clamping the scroll board where it belongs, I then cut out a scrap piece of MDF, to be used as a spacer and clamp it in place. Now I’m ready to check out where the lower divi...

Exterior Door - Part II

06-05-2010 10:49 PM by Troy | 6 comments »

In continuation of a previous post, this is the second and final part of the exterior door project.   The Arch  The first part starts with a nervous step in the project – the arch cut. Any and all mistakes would be very noticeable and unrepairable, cosmetically anyhow. The only tool I could turn to for this operation was my jigsaw.  Arch cut  I put on a new blade and clamped on an in-feed board to serve as a reverse backer, a “fronter” of sorts. It work...

Machine set-up #1: Double stack

06-04-2010 01:00 AM by rhett | 3 comments »

An excellent way to increase the speed and efficiency of your shaper when running rails and stiles is to stack your cutters. With the right set-up and coping jig you can quickly switch from rails to stiles and back again with no down time or resetting. It all starts with your cutters and an appropriate width spacer. Here I am using Amana’s mission style combo with a 3/4” spacer in between. More on this later. After finding the spot you want for the groove, run your ...

ARMOIRE- Jewelry box - using RECYCLED WOOD #2: ARMOIRE - Jewelry box using recycled wood

06-03-2010 02:35 AM by BertFlores58 | 0 comments »

PART II I suggest that you read first the first part of the series for a better understanding… The drawer In making the drawer, all the difficulties were turned to an easy task because of proactiveness. We cannot avoid changes of idea, plans, joints, size, cuts and other problems while doing the job. I don’t have blue pirnts neither actual plans in doing this project specially when you deal with recycled or scraps materials. Here you can find: undersize, grooves, dents...

Charles Neil build along mahogany lowboy "series" #10: week

05-31-2010 02:48 AM by a1Jim | 31 comments »

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, # 10I’m now ready to start the scroll board. I begin by using the pattern of the scroll board Charles sent along with the wood he furnished . Guess what? I looked all around my shop for more than an hour, moving things, and picking up things. I went to some locations three times, but no pattern. My only alternative was to go to the “Mastering Woodworking “ website and print the PDF file, and I did, but in checking the printed PDF, I found the printed pattern d...

Charles Neil build along mahogany lowboy "series" #9: week

05-30-2010 11:05 PM by a1Jim | 20 comments »

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, #9 Back in episode #6, when Nell was about to be run over by the train…I kid! When I left you last time, I had just cut the tenons and was in the process of fitting them to the mortises on the legs. I continue with a little more cleaning up of the tenons with the pattern makers file and check the leg mortises for proper depth. I continue with the fitting of the mortise and tenon, being careful not to force the tenons, and make sure there ...
