Inlaid Wooden Hinges #2: Making the inlays.

05-08-2012 10:50 AM by ruddy | 4 comments »

Ok…..This will mainly deal with making the inlays 1. A drilling jigIt is very important that when drilling the holes in the inlays all holes are in the same exact position.The hinge pin I use is made from 3/32 dia brass rod. I manage to get it from a good hobby shop that sells RC model cars helicopters etc.From this point on, everything relies on going back to the reference face on the hinge leaves and also the hinge pockets. The hinge pins need a 3/32 dia hole drilled 6 mm from the ...

Inlaid Wooden Hinges #3: Glueing the inlays.

05-09-2012 04:07 AM by ruddy | 15 comments »

This is now the home stretch….not long to go.1. Left hand side base inlays. These inlays are going to be glued into the base. Make sure that they slide in easily before applying glue. Remember which face is the reference!I use drills of the correct diameter to get the centreline of the hinge pin in the correct position. The centreline should be on the mid point of the over lap which is about 8 mm. In this case I set the centreline at 4 mm.When I have glued these base inserts previously ...

RingMaster Bowls

03-05-2015 11:44 AM by recycle1943 | 9 comments »

I don’t condone drug use but I can understand the addiction because of my addiction to saw dust and glue. It seems that I can’t wait to get out in the shop and create something. Lately it’s been RingMaster bowls since I almost have the machine figured out.I especially enjoy using aromatic cedar as the color in many of my bowls because it’s so unpredictable regarding streaks and blemishes.

How I Make a Lazy Susan

10-01-2008 05:36 PM by WoodMosaics | 33 comments »

Now before I get started on this little demonstration of how I do it, let me caution you on a couple things. IF you try anything like this, take the plate that your saw blade comes up through and close that hole completely up with a thin piece of wood. Make sure it is even with the top, with no gaps and no lips to catch the pieces. You want it smooth. Then with a “Hollow ground plywood blade” come up from the bottom so you have no gap between the blade and the wood. You may have to do this a ...

Easy. Elegant Wooden Box Hinge #2: A Sketchup Model to Make it Easier (I hope)

11-04-2011 07:25 AM by shipwright | 7 comments »

I have had several people PM me who were having trouble with the details of the integral hinge in this blog so I’ve done a sketchup to try to clarify it. I hope I haven’t just made it more confusing. If this doesn’t clear it up, I’ll just keep trying. Here’s the link: http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=49b42e2ce1f6da5152d9fc61873164a1 I’ve added the sketchup link to the first blog page so it’s all in one place and easy to ...

Easy. Elegant Wooden Box Hinge #1: I could kick myself

06-23-2011 07:26 AM by shipwright | 58 comments »

A few months ago I spent many many hours trying to perfectly align a set of “box joint hinges” for my project ” A Little Cabinetree” After I finally got them working I installed them on the edges of the MDF sides and doors and then veneered over the whole works. The only good part was that there were enough left over prototype parts that I could make a hinge for my next project from the cast-offs Then this week I was making a tea box for a friend and when...

Cigar-Box Guitar How-To

12-26-2007 06:02 AM by WhiskeyWaters | 3 comments »

I wrote this article/post/manual for a Technical Writing course I took this fall. Couldn’t think of any technical aspects of teaching, but luckily, woodworking came to my rescue. I borrowed heavily from Make magazine’s article on cigar-box making, but I got a little more specific (I hope), and well, added a modification page from some of the other guitars I made. Sorry, no pictures – but I think y’all will get the picture. If you have trouble, give a shout and I&#...
