Techniques & Methods #2: Fixing Messed-up Blind Dovetails

1813 days ago by PurpLev | 16 comments »

As I mentioned in my recent workbench blog, I had used inverted dovetail joinery to connect the skirt of the benchtop to the endcap. just like Arabian Nights, there are 1001 stories why joinery can get screwed up- mine were rushing + miscalculating + lack of experience + other. All of these matter not, and the end result is a misaligned, crooked, awfully looking, and unacceptable dovetail fit: you can plainly see the tearout and large gaps between the mating parts, and the misalignment on ...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #5: Update

1815 days ago by lew | 17 comments »

The other day, I posted another rolling pin. There have been several requests about how to make them. I thought I should update this tutorial with the new and improved trimming jig. Top of jig- hold down clamps, handle, and cutout. The cutout is the main new part to this jig. Previously I was using my tapering jig. The problem I encountered was that if the trimming process was not perfectly flush with the pin blank during the first trimming operation, then the blank would not clamp fla...

Refinishing update

1818 days ago by kosta | 10 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I have been really board this week and decided to do a test does dust collection really help improve sandpaper life. It actually does because I am working on a fish tank stand right now and I have to do a lot of sanding. Now I dont really care if I have to sand something for 30 minutes but it doesnt matter how long it takes. I use a dewalt 5 in random orbit sander and I have been doing most of the heavy work with the 60 grit paper because Im trying to get all the old sta...

Tape Measure tip

1819 days ago by John Gray | 19 comments »

I was constantly having a problem locating my chrome Stanley tape measure, never could seem to spot it when I needed it. So I scuffed up the chrome parts with sandpaper, wiped the tape measure down with Prep-Sol (paint thinner will work too), masked off the parts I didn’t want painted, and gave it a couple coats of bright yellow paint. Now it stands out from the pack and I seem to never have trouble finding it.

I'm gonna be a Star!! #3: Chip carving #1

1825 days ago by kolwdwrkr | 11 comments »

So the chip carving has begun. I thought I would share a little bit of how to with you. I don’t have my entire pattern figured out, but I did choose this pattern for each of the points. So lets get started. You can purchase chip carving knives if you feel it is necessary, but I just use an old timer I’ve had since High School. It has 2 blades. The smaller blade is just fine for this type of work as long as you have it sharpened. Trace your pattern onto your piece by usi...

"Art Box" Tutorial #10: Pin Hinges

1826 days ago by Andy | 17 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 I spent a lot of time developing a way to let the lid swing down into the box, yet still maintaining a fairly tight reveal on all four sidesThe difficulty is the lip itself. It doesnt allow the back of the lid to drop into the box, so thats where we need to cut it away a little deeper at the back. I call these pockets.The other difficulty is in getting the hinge placement spot on or it wont open at all or not far enough to stay open. Here is how its done: Use the same pa...
