Miter sled issues!! - 13 replies

So i made a miter sled and i thought i had it dialed in. It was cutting pretty square. But an issue arose. I noticed when checking the pieces for square, the cut wasn’t straight from edge to edge. It had a curve to it. What the heck would cause that? The outer edges were at the right spot, but the middle of the cut bowed out. I could...

To make hinges or buy them? - 2 replies

I’m making a G&G tool chest and I need to figure out what I’m going to do for hinges. I haven’t seen any I really like. Except maybe a piano hinge. I know the typical G&G way is to make any part necessary. I’ve made hinges in the past out of mahogany and they’re still holding fine. I was thinking of...

Making router table insert for table saw? - 1 reply

I have a 97’ Grizzly G1023 saw with a 36” Shop fox fence. It has roughly a 20” gap between the right wing and the end of the Angle iron brackets. I figured it might be a good location for a router? I wasn’t sure if maybe someone has done this on this model or a saw with a 36” fence. Wasn’t sure if there was...

Wood expansion - 6 replies

I need to add a bottom to a box. I was thinking of using a solid wood bottom. Poplar. Would 1/8” allowance be enough over a 12” width? Im gonna try and get a piece thats QS or close to it. Also would I just glue one side like on drawers?

G&G Ebony plugs. Anyone done em? - 5 replies

I’ve got all my mortises cut for them and the stock milled. I’m curious if the 3/16”/1/4” is of sufficient depth for these? Also I see some that protrude a touch and some that appear to be flush with the face. Thoughts?

Small tool chest- No bottom? - 9 replies

Working on a small tool chest 20”x14”. Was hoping to doing a small drawer on the bottom for chisels etc. Thought i could just cut off the front bottom two fingers and add the drawer. Then just put a piece of 1/8” ply above the drawer as the bottom. The drawer is only 2 1/8” tall. Would this be a bad idea? The li...

Attaching a small moulding to the top of a bookshelf. - 4 replies

I’ve made a small book shelf. The top is 7.5” and the bottom about 9”. I want to attach a moulding to the top. I was going to just put two dowels in but i got to thinking about wood movement and it causing issues. Would it be such an issue with only 7.5” of width? Seen on the tops of the sides.

Determining pivoting hinge location? - 8 replies

Not really sure what this type of hinge is called, but i saw this box online and thought it would be neat to add my own flair and build it as a surprise for my wife as a jewelry box. Would there be a formula for determining the placement? I know i could make some templates from 1/4” luan and mess with it until i found it. Was just curio...

Bending veneer - 10 replies

Anyone have any tips on bending veneer? Trying out some veneer bending to make some small-ish boxes. Using 1/16 veneer. I tried using a small clothes iron and some water, and it did work. I was having a hard time getting it to hold a tighter radius in the corners. Seems like it wants to spring back.

1/2 hp enough for a lathe? - 18 replies

I was given a Craftsman Lathe by DonW a few months back and I’m finally going to get a motor for it. I think he said it had a 1/2hp motor. I’ve never used a lathe so I’m not sure if that is enough? Also what is an RPM requirement? 1720?
