Something with an "R" #2: Materials & getting started

06-13-2015 05:19 PM by sras | 7 comments »

I wanted to have a specific color combination: . Yellow field, Black letters and Red trim. . I chose Yellowheart, Wenge and Bloodwood. I had never worked with any of these before. While shopping, I found some sycamore for the inside of the box. Here is a shot of the bloodwood trim strips. Here is a view of the sycamore ready to be glued to the mdf core. You can see the plastic wrap under the pieces. That is folded over the top. And clamped with a backing board. Once...

Kitchen Utensil Box #3: Cutting the joinery

05-31-2015 02:16 AM by JSOvens | 2 comments »

So here comes one of the more exciting parts of the project: the cutting of the joinery. If you saw the first post in this series, you would have seen the interlocking mortise and tenon style joinery I planned to use. Since I accidentally cut the Padauk posts 1/2” too short, I had to redo the sizing for the mortises and tenons. To make the rest easier to follow, I will repost the image of the test run here: I began with the mortises, since they are generally easier. I have not ma...

Gift Exchanges #1: A Beautiful Gift from Robsshop

05-26-2015 01:40 AM by Jerry | 4 comments »

Okay, my friend Rob from Robbshop sent me this beautiful and amazing Cigar Smoking Station after I sent him my first good Invisio-Hinge box. He jokingly said in the comments section that if I didn’t know what to do with the box that I knew where I could send it, so I did, but now he makes me this absolutely stunning smoking station. I am always amazed at the quality of workmanship he puts out, but this is really special. Rob is one of those rare woodworkers who has that gift for j...

Kitchen Utensil Box #2: Milling the components

05-19-2015 06:16 AM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Hello again, I left off last time with the design and materials for the kitchen utensil box. I started by milling the Padauk for the four corner posts. These posts are 1” square, while the piece of Padauk I purchased is 8/4. To avoid excess waste, I decided to resaw off about 5/8” for later use. I primarily used my table saw with a thin kerf blade, but since the board was about 6” wide, and my max blade height is 2”, I had to complete the operation by hand. Below is...

I wasn,t able (too few hands) to make picture’s of the cutting process. I did this with an angle grinder..... Thanks for watching

My first lap steel guitar

04-13-2015 07:58 PM by YorkshireStewart | 11 comments »

This dirty, heavy unidentified board had been kicking around for some years.. ..imagine my delight when I ran a plane over it and found this lovely lacewood: I scaled up from a photograph of a Moog lap steel. Imitation is, after all the sincerest from of flattery! Bandsawn to rough shape and tidied up on the bobbin sander. Rough planed to 1.5” and sanded through the trusty shop-made thicknesser: Routed out for wenge inlays: Inlays glued in and ...

Kitchen Utensil Box #1: Introduction

04-13-2015 06:08 AM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Hello everyone, It’s been a while since my last post regarding my mini hand tool cabinet, which is still under construction (truthfully, I haven’t really made any progress since my last post at the link above). I became very busy at the end of last year defending my Ph. D. thesis. That’s right, you may now call me “Doctor”! Moving on to the matters at hand, as you can see from the photo below, we have a kitchen drawer which is way overcrowded with large kit...
