The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #44: The amazing box joint machine version 2.0- Better than ever?

103 days ago by StumpyNubs | 19 comments »

Maybe a bit too much hype? Well, I’m pretty excited about this new “invention”. I think it’s an improvement over the box joint machine I built a couple of years ago. Not that the first one wasn’t perfectly fine, I just thought I could make it even better. So here’s the new jig- presented in a mock interview format that I think you’ll enjoy! (Friend us on facebook, follow us on Twitter, and visit the Stumpy Store to help support the show!)

Ribbon and Bow Box Techniques

493 days ago by Lenny | 20 comments »

Enough people have asked me how the Bow Boxes I made and posted were crafted that I figured a blog was warranted. My post is here “Bow Box”: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/68845. I have seen others make the boxes and thought you might like to see different interpretations of them. bigogre has done several. Here is one of his: “Box”: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/73998. moonls recently posted one with wonderful banding in the ribbons and bow. See it “here...

Three 2x8's, Three afternoons, One coffee(ish) table #2: Afternoon 2: Shaping and assembly

586 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 13 comments »

This was a simple coffee table with drawer made with about $20 in materials and spanning three afternoons. My daughter wanted something that she could move easily from apartments and maybe even leave behind when she finishes her post docterate in boston. She is a research fellow at Beth Israel Hospital This afternoon, I cut out the legs, planed and rough sanded everything, Routed ogees on edges, assembled the legs to the table and installed the drawer with the drawer slides. My daughter...

Tool Picking #5: Almost didn't measure up - Shocking

751 days ago by TrBlu | 8 comments »

Well, it’s been almost four weeks since I have had a new find to show you. Honestly, the normal tool picking has been kind of slim. It fact, you might say it almost doesn’t measure up to our picking standards. The only thing I have found over the past few weeks was this 50 foot Lufkin Chrome Clad, leather bound metal tape. The tape looks almost new, with all of the number crisp and clear and winds as smooth as silk. This was a $2 find, as I was passing through an estate sal...

Secret-compartment pencil holder.

777 days ago by Stevinmarin | 34 comments »

I designed this project specifically for kids to make. I thought about what kinds of things I liked as a kid, and anything with a hidden compartment fascinated me. Even today, I would love to have one of those Scooby-Doo spinning bookcases that leads into another room! Anyway, this is an easy project that can be made with the fewest of tools and very little woodworking experience.

785 days ago by mafe | 29 comments »

Japanese toolbox大工の道具箱 I have been looking forward for a while to make this blog, this because the result is one of my favorite woodworking projects, it was like a sum of skills leaned and also a design and history challenge that I enjoyed.The result is something I am proud of and that I think will stay with me for as long as I live. At first I made this small one out of trash wood in Paris, meant for chisels. Later another as a gift for a friend http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/2501...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #3: Cutting Spline Slots

798 days ago by Boxguy | 15 comments »

Boxguy’s Spline Slot Cutting Jig Want to add corner splines like this?,, You need a jig like this!..This hard working (and dusty) jig is used on almost every box I make, and is quick and simple to build. It has a wide plywood board for a base, a long “trough” supported by 45 degree triangles cut from a 2X6 and a handle so you can pull it back to you. (I just made the handle out of a forking branch.) The long trough lets me use this for boxes that are large or smal...

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

1128 days ago 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...

Swiss Trip #1: Tour of a lifetime

1295 days ago by Roger Strautman | 14 comments »

I’m a part of this great website because I am a woodworker and enjoy new adventures into woodworking with my LJ friends but my passion is for woodcarving. I have been carving for about 14 years and have taken a couple of classes from Wayne Barton the world renowned chip carver. Wayne Barton not only gives classes but because he studied carving in Switzerland he also puts together a 12 day Swiss tour every year. The wife and I have been saving our money for the Swiss trip ever since my f...
