The EZ mitre technique

1359 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 68 comments »

Hello all. Well I seem to have whet the appetite a bit so here goes for a ‘novel’ technique for making mitred boxes. Its a bit like making a box out of paper, like they showed you at school, using a ‘net’. Only in 3D, with wood and a tablesaw (not sissors). Well first comes the board Its made from alternating strips of Maple and Rosewood of varying thickness. I won’t bore you with the details on how to make it suffice to say that all the corners must b...

Build a router table #2: Router table top and fence

760 days ago by Stevinmarin | 29 comments »

Really happy with the way this fence turned out. It’s got a lot of weight to it, is square, and moves pretty smoothly. I found the clamping system in a great book called Woodworking With The Router, by Bill Hylton. If you want a good, basic router book, I recommend it. Next week I plan on making a router lift. Not sure how that will go. I have all the parts and can start this weekend!

The Humble Hand Brace - A Beginner's Guide to Restoring, Buying and Using #1: Part 1 - Restoring a Brace to 'Like New' Condition

974 days ago by Brit | 59 comments »

In a recent tool gloat, dakremer showed off three lovely braces he’d purchased and said “Now I just have to learn how to restore this kind of thing”. WayneC was first to congratulate him and then proceeded to drop me in it (only joking) by saying “Brit has lots of experience in restoring braces”. Later in the comments dakremer said he would love to restore at least one of them to like new condition. Always a sucker for punishment, I agreed to do a blog on restoring a hand brace and I’ve...

I was thrilled when the author, Bob Glisdorf granted me permission to make a video using one of his designs. Check out the book. It’s really cool. Read more about this project and Bob's book here.
