How you can draw 3 cabinets with one common face frame in eCabinets.

How you can draw 3 cabinets with one common face frame in eCabinets. In this video I will show you how I took a one opening cabinet and made a single cabinet with three openings and one face frame that will allow you to assemble it as three separate cabinets. Then install those cabinets and apply the face frame on the job site.Be sure to watch the entire video because I use some cool short cuts along the way. If you have any short cuts that you use feel free to share them in the comment...

My lathe journeys. #42: ... Curved carbide tool, for gettin' in deep

03-26-2016 12:53 PM by JoeinGa | 13 comments »

A friend (and fellow turner) mentioned in church last Sunday that he’d watched a youtube vid of someone using a lathe tool with a curved end for easier access to the inside of a bowl. I had made him a carbide tool last year and he asked me if I thought I could make a curved one. He thought that because I have been using that thick 5/8” aluminum bar stock that I might not be able to bend it. Well, challenge accepted ! Here’s the progression of how it went….. The ...

Curved Front End Table #3: Internal Shelf, Divider and Glue Up

03-26-2016 12:29 PM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

Now that I know the thickness of the doors, I can start working on the internal structure of the piece. I have to account for being able to put the lower shelf and divider for the drawer being put into the piece after glue up, so I have to do some unconventional things to get it to work. After I get those made, I taper the legs and do the initial glue up. Then I modify my bending jig to make the cut to separate the curved front into two doors. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...

Jet 1642 Maintenance and Repairs (spindle bearings)

03-25-2016 04:23 PM by JimChrisawn | 2 comments »

A few years ago I purchased a used Jet 1642. It has been and is a great lathe with very little trouble until recently. I noticed I had began getting some noise that was different and I was having trouble with getting smooth surfaces. At first I just excused it as just a bad day for tool control, however it slowly kept getting to me. I began checking things on the lathe. No play in the spindle, but noise. I decided that it was a bad belt so I ordered one. When the belt arrived I began the proc...

Flattening Slab on my bench with a Router

03-22-2016 07:48 PM by CharlieK | 8 comments »

- Making a Slab Coffee Table I have a very nice walnut slab that I plan to make into a coffee table. I am happy to say that flattening a slab of wood with a router in my shop was even easier that I thought it would be! Not only was it easy, but the results were great! This is one of those tasks where an adjustable height workbench came in very handy because setting it to a very low height made it easier to move the router across the slab. The slab is a slice out of a tree, some p...

Shop stuff #43: Branching out

03-22-2016 07:38 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Have not been doing much in the way of anything lately. Now that spring is here though, I guess I have to start coming out of “hermit” mode and get going on a few things. I have some dead branches and branches growing into other trees on the lot that need trimming. It is a good time to tune up the pruning saw. View on YouTube

Affordable track saw

03-19-2016 02:27 AM by Rentvent | 2 comments »

First step: Upgrade the blade. A good blade is only ~$15 and is a world of difference. 1/4’ mdf attached to the right side of the saw base so It will match the height of the jig. (1) perfect straight edge on 3/4” MDF glued to-(2) 1/4” MDF that is 1-1/4” wider than the 3/4” MDF . Once the glue sets, cut the 1/4” MDF using the 3/4” MDF as the fence(3) run through Table saw to make Edge #3 parallel to Edge #2 Bonus – add clamps ...

Center Keyed Box Joints

03-18-2016 12:08 AM by Katz-Moses Woodworking | 6 comments »

Here is a video I just finished on Center Keyed Box Joints. One of the harder things about box joints is getting an equal sized key on both the top and the bottom. Here I show how to get equal sized keys regardless of the height of your board or the width of your dado stack. It is a really cool way to do the joints and the result is as decorative as it is functional.

Router Inlay of Cherry Blossoms

03-15-2016 08:31 PM by spunjin | 0 comments »

I wanted to share my video with everyone here on a project I am working on. The main detail is a cherry blossom inlay at the footboard (in the video) and headboard (soon to be part of the bed build video). Each piece was cut out by hand using a fret saw and set into place using a 1/16” straight router bit. Let me know what you think. The main headboard panel is 5” x 20” and took 63 hours to complete. The piece in the video is 2.5” x 5” and took about 27 hours...

Odds 'N' Ends #7: Micro-Tapering on the Jointer

03-14-2016 08:09 PM by ThomasLightle | 4 comments »

I call any taper that cannot be accurately cut on the table saw a micro taper. Usually anything under 1 degree. The taper I needed to cut was 0.2 degrees, so the only tool for the job was the jointer. The process was pretty simple. I needed to taper 1/16” over an 18-inch length. I made a 1/16” spacer and raised my jointer to a 1/16” cut. I placed one end of the panel on the spacer and ran the panel through the jointer. As the front edge of the panel hits the knives, t...
