Intarsia , an easier way #1: I use all the same piece of wood instead of lots of different types of wood.

12-02-2016 06:20 PM by halfacre | 7 comments »

These pictures are in my pictures under halfacre if these don’t open. The pictures I used for these intarsia thingies are all from wifes stained glass patterns. They can be found on google somewhere. Before you put the pattern on the wood. First apply clear packing tape to the wood. Then spray the packing tape with spray glue, maybe called temporary spray adhesive, hobby lobby, Walmart, then apply the pattern on to the glue. Then after all the pieces are cut out the tape ...

Dave's Workshop #17: Handy Mini Multi-Miter Sled

07-24-2016 08:55 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

This is one of those jigs I’ve thought about for a while and finally decided to just do it. It’s down and dirty, focused very much on function and not at all on prettiness. Originally I planned to make a dedicated 90 degree miter gauge since the one for my saw is pretty unreliable. It works, but—well, you know. After I got the 90 degree part finished it occurred to me to try some added functionality. On the board behind the fence I added two fences, one at 45 de...

Project to learn woodturning. #1: My Chess Set

02-25-2016 03:13 PM by JWags | 0 comments »

My son asked me to make him a chess set. I used his request as a long awaited excuse to buy a lathe and learn to turn wood. This chess set was my first experiment. There are 7 videos so far in the series.

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #21: Hinges and Hardware - Cabinet Complete

01-26-2013 12:51 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 71 comments »

When we left subject cabinet, the last part of the build was done, as the upper door pieces were cut and fit and glued up. Stiles ran long on the doors, as Lysdexic correctly pointed out, to prevent spitting of the entire stile while the mortises were cut. So we know the doors needed a trim length wise. What I didn’t realize is how close I had made it re: the rails. You can see in the pics below I had to preserve all of the rail material… Whew… There was ve...

Building miniature ebony and rosewood boxes

12-26-2015 06:11 AM by Marty Backe | 15 comments »

This is a long form (i.e., not a 5 minute video) instructional video showing how I make very small boxes. These were made from ebony and rosewood, and have maple inlay and maple & leather interiors. I make them as ‘thank you’ type gifts. If you want just the highlights, watch the first and last few minutes of the video.

Printing on Wood (Transfer Using Acrylic Polyurethane)

10-21-2015 05:07 AM by TheCrafsMan | 26 comments »

I wanted to share this method because I’ve tried many of the available printing-on-wood techniques, including citrus solvent transfer (don’t use acetone, by the way) as well as Liquitex and Mod Podge. Acrylic Poly Finish (aka “acrylic polyurethane”, “polycrylic”, etc.) is not only cheaper than the above, but you end up with a cleaner image because it is less prone to rub off during the paper-removal stage, it is clearer, and it dries much faster. As a...

HHWW: Learning Resources #1: Turn of the Century (1900's) Trade and Crafts Books

07-20-2015 12:23 PM by Ted Ewen | 6 comments »

Just stumbled upon this online resource, and thought it would be of value, so here it is:http://chestofbooks.com/home-improvement/index.html#.VazktfmqpBd This is an online collection of (seemingly) full text volumes, many from the early 1900’s. The range of subjects is astounding, and the number of volumes available is quite exciting. It’s not just trades and crafts either. Here are the subject headings from the Home Improvement section:—- An ultimate Do It Yourself co...
