As we continue on in our build we get to where we need to build the boxes for our drawers. I run through it and explain about setting up for the drawer slides.
I must apologize for my lack of interaction here on LumberJocks. I am on the night shift at the paper mill and my neighbors don’t dig the 2:30 am woodworking bit, so I have been limited to my keychain work and ya’ll have seen that. It is my night off and I remembered a couple requests a while back to do a blog on my keychain process. So, here ‘tis! I hope the video comes out right. I’ve been experimenting with my CoolPix. Short videos? I can do that! So I decided to...
As featured in the Let’s Build series... Many of woodworkers receive woodworking magazine subscriptions in the mail each month and as the time goes by these magazines accumulate. These magazines are a great source for reference and also inspiration so it is nice to have them protected and organized so that we can easily access the information. Now, a woodworker can simply purchase a magazine case from the publisher or from a local discount store and be done with it. However, since...
I got an email from http://lumberjocks.com/didierld this person today: didierld. This guy (or girl) is a horrific spammer.. beware do not reply to this guy unless you want to do as I did- tell him to GET OFF THIS SITE. I don’t know how to report this person to the moderator? Could someone either tell me how to report the person so he and she can bug off? Thanks!
In this episode I show you all of the ins and outs on using hardwood edge banding. I had to pick up a new trim router so once I make the new base I will show that to everyone.
I recently found this design video. The music is a bit dated. I thought folks here would appreciate a hands on design method. Notice the French curves and dividers…no autocad here! Follow the process of designing a bottle decanter from start to finish. Design story: The Decanter from Landor Associates on Vimeo.
Dentil mouldings are a distinctive member of the classical moulding family. Often you will see a distinguished building and then when you look up to view the architectural moulding of the cornice you will very often see dentils as one of the cornice members. The same holds true for furniture. Visit a museum that features fine woodworking from the past few hundred years and you are sure to find a furniture piece with a cornice that includes dentil moulding. So, if you were building f...
The problemI was making a multi sided box the other day, and after cutting all the miters, I decided to add a lamination to make the sides more interesting. The problem was that clamping all those small pieces (6 sides and 5 glue joints on each one) seemed like a nightmare job until I realized that the answer was to use wedges instead of tape or clamps. I had used wedges for a thin panel glue-up a week earlier with good results so it was only natural to use them again. The only problem was...
Probably the most important fixture in the guitar building process is the Solera. This jig is used to establish the arch in the guitar’s top as well as the necessary angle of the neck in relation to the top. Basically it’s a guitar-shaped board with sections carved away to facilitate various shaping and assembly processes. A shaped clamping caul more or less. I’ve read about these fixtures being made of mdf and solid wood but I chose 3/4 fir plywood. A previous attemp...
So here is part two of this series on making these desks. I show you how I layout my sheet goods and yes I did solve my quandary of the pencil drawer grain. So I hope that this is entertaining and educational for all.
