Project Instructions #1: Jewelry Dishes - Instructions for a Great Gift Item

12-29-2010 03:26 AM by Peter Oxley | 2 comments »

I made several of these for Christmas gifts this year. They aren’t difficult, and they seemed to be well received. They use a fairly small amount of material, so they may be the perfect project for that pretty little chunk of wood you just can’t throw away. Start with ¾” material. The blank for the dish is about 3” diameter, and the post is ¾” wide by about 3-4” long. Put the post blank on the lathe and use a roughing gouge to turn it round. Now...

DIY Folding Sawhorses Video- A How-to

12-23-2010 01:39 AM by Sailor | 5 comments »

Here are some folding sawhorses that I built a few months back and added them as a project. I had recorded the building process but was unable to get the files off of my camera to edit them due to a lost software, but I bought a new software so here is the video! You can find some more information like the cutting layout, dimensions, hardware and some more detailed photos on my blog, The Woodworking Trip. I really like these sawhorses and I have built myself two sets. One that I use...

Charles Neil build along mahogany lowboy "series" #19: week

12-21-2010 06:57 AM by a1Jim | 36 comments »

This part of my blog covers installing lock and hardware. I start by taking the lock and putting it on the inside of the top drawer and then press firmly to make a small dent in the drawer back where the lock pin sticks out. I use my marking gauge to mark the same distance away from the edge of the drawer to carry the mark where the pin marked it on the inside. I place the lock escutcheon on the outside of the drawer and center it to check to see how well it lines up with wh...

Killer Finish on Cherry (and other woods)

12-21-2010 03:34 AM by Alin Dobra | 23 comments »

Some people asked how did I get the deep, nice finish on my latest cherry projects. Some of you might know the answer: potassium dichromate.

WARNING: I am only offering my opinion without any implicit or explicit liability or fitness to a particular purpose. Use this advice at your own risk; I do not assume any responsibil...
