Making all wood folding knives #1: The first twelve parts

04-27-2016 11:53 PM by poospleasures | 6 comments »

Several of you have asked for instruction for making the all wood folding knives I,ve been doing for a number of years. Hope I can give that instruction through this blog series. If to many get fed-up with this please let me know to stop. Starting today 4/27/16 we will begin. It would probably be a good idea to have a folding pocket knife handy to be able to look to see the pieces we are talking about. I will be making three knives at this time. #1 is choosing the material. You can make the ...

Slow Days at the Shop. #8: My Version of the Chisel Plane

04-24-2016 08:13 AM by fatman51 | 4 comments »

Admittedly, Tow Mater chairs and well executed portable work benches are both more interesting and practical than my fancy decoration but I am always happy when I build a tool that is received well by my woodworking peers. This chisel plane project is particularly special to me because where I have had several occasions to want one, I have never been willing to purchase one, nor had it occurred to make one until I saw that several other Lumberjocks have made their own and done a nice job o...

Curved Front End Table #5: Maple Back and Curved Cherry Top

04-23-2016 11:52 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’...

Shop stuff #47: An Oscar for my video

04-19-2016 01:55 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

School budgets are pretty slim. They come out of our tax dollars and I think we all feel the same way about taxes. In one of our local public schools they have a bunch of inexpensive guitars for their music program. They are bought used, or donated, so most are in pretty rough shape. Particularly after a few years of being banged on by a bunch of kids. Here I am shimming a nut on one of them. An Oscar Schmitt that is buzzing from the nut being too low. I do not charge anything for my time,...

Curved Front End Table #4: Fitting Doors, Curved & Veneered Drawer

04-09-2016 10:29 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this video, I cut the curved door panels to size using the bending form I used to create them. Then I cut the veneer for the edge banding, and install it on the doors to give the illusion that they are a solid bent panel. Then install the hinges and hang them. After the doors are hung, I can start working on the curved drawer front. I cut the face of the curve on a large blank and them create the half blind dovetails for the sides. I then veneer the face of the drawer front so that the ...

Shop stuff #44: Doc's little docs #4: File storage

04-02-2016 06:00 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

One of the things most folks who fix things have is a file, or two, or a bunch, depending on what you need them for. They come in all shapes and sizes depending on their purpose. Files are made from very hard steel. One would think that they would be hard to damage, but they will dull. Particularly if, like me, you store them all together in a drawer of a tool box. You really want to protect them from banging into each other. It does them no good at all. I spend a couple of pennies and...

04-02-2016 05:33 PM by ScottM1 | 0 comments »

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...
