Jewelry Case Build #6: Tiny Drawers, Tiny Rabbets, Tiny Dados!

61 days ago by RoadHogg | 1 comment »

Continuing with the tiny drawers, of which there are six, I constructed a little “cabinet” for them to sit in. They basically just sit on little shelves, negating the need for slides etc, which in this case, are not at all practical due to the size of this case. Nothing rocket science here, just fiddling with 12 little drawer fronts/backs and 12 little drawer sides. All 24 pieces got a small rabbet in the bottom edge and the sides each got rabbets in the ends where they will m...

Jewelry Case Build #5: Top and Base and Trim

64 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

In between working on a larger project, I’ve been fitting in a few minutes (hours) to fiddle with this jewelry case. Today I cut the top and bottom to size, ran rabets and dados, milled some trim on my router table and mitered the trim to fit. This included making up a simple miter jig for the table saw. Once complete, the jig is an excellent way to get perfect miters every time. It’ll come in handy when making picture frames etc too. To make the stopped dados in the top an...

Jewelry Case Build #4: Glass Cutting

64 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

I decided to not send the little panels to the glass shop to have glass cut and I’m really glad I made that choice. Instead, I bought a $8.00 glass cutting tool and cut the glass I need from some broken window glass that was laying in the back yard. Basic glass cutting is really easy so if you haven’t tried it, you really should. I learned everything I needed from youtube. So, not much to show and tell, just, I cut the glass and installed it in the little frames…well, I ...

found wood

65 days ago by NaptownWood | 0 comments »

Why is it that when I see a tree being cut down, and I stop for a piece or two or three to turn on the lathe, when I get into a really nice, drier, figured interesting piece, I only grabbed one chunk, and when its wet as can be, boring, stinky, and hard to make viable, I have taken a half truckload?

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #2: Boxing, Depth Stop, Fence and even a nicker

66 days ago by Wally331 | 7 comments »

Pics will be in a few minutes… Where exactly did I leave off last time…ahh the main body is essentially done, and now all the adjustment features are all that’s left. Boxing The one weakness of cherry for planes is that it’s just a little bit soft. Not much softer then beech, but enough that a harder sole will help over the years. Especially on a fillister or rabbet plane where almost all of the wear is on a corner. I chose bubinga to box it with, because its ...
