Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #12: Making Tea Box Dividers Of Venetian Blinds

90 days ago by Boxguy | 21 comments »

How do you install a grid work inside a tea box so it looks like this? Here is what the lift-out grill work looks like inside the tea box. This is what the lift-out grill work looks like outside of the box. The small compartment to the left makes a chain pocket so the stop chain doesn’t get tangled with the teabags... Why use Venetian blinds for lift-out dividers? By the time you plane, sand, and finish slats to make dividers inside boxes you have a lot of time and ...

A Dying Chainsaw's Last Words #1: Carb Rebuild

93 days ago by woodshopmike | 13 comments »

I figured there’s at least a hand full of people that frequent this site that could be helped out by this article. Who hasn’t had a chainsaw at some point that was giving them a fit? If you have an older chainsaw, you’ve probably heard it say this before: “Help, Help! cough, umpfh, vrooooommmmm! cough, sputter, death.” I’ll walk you through the steps of bringing a Stihl 026 chainsaw back to life. Maybe I shouldn’t lead off with this, but m...

Making a Ceiling Beam #2: Installing the Beam

99 days ago by ~Julie~ | 5 comments »

As I said previously my beam is made like this, with the bottom piece having tongues on each edge which sit in grooves in the side pieces. So the next thing I did was put grooves in all the side pieces and made rabbets on the bottom pieces, which left the tongues to go into the grooves. The next job was to stain all the pieces: I glued just one side piece to the bottom piece, this would allow me (actually my husband) to wire up the lights easier than trying to do it with a completed bea...

Furniture Making Tutorials #5: Installing False Drawer Fronts

99 days ago by BigRedKnothead | 9 comments »

False drawer fronts are very common in furniture, but getting the fronts installed precisely can be frustrating. Here’s a little trick or technique for this task. -Here’s the big ol’ drawer front I’m installing on my joinery bench. The front has already been edge planed and sized to fit. I like to use a steel rule as a spacer, it aids me in obtaining a uniform reveal around the perimeter of the drawer front. -The first step is pre-drilling your screws through the front...

The old time woodshop journals #48: Tool pickin', cleaning and using!

99 days ago by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

For the many of you out there that are always on the hunt for great hand tool buys at a Flea Market this one is for you. I would say this is also for the beginner or curious onlookers that may want to start using hand tools but may feel overwhelmed by the catalog prices of some of the leading brands that are making outstanding top quality tools. I know for myself at times I have to take a deep breath after drooling over a Lie Nielson catalog and seeing a hand plane upwards of 200-300 plus ...

Carving a small spoon

100 days ago by filiplaw | 3 comments »

I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...
