Jewelry Armoire / Lingerie Chest #1: Introduction

5 days ago by gildedrain | 1 comment »

Hi everybody, I’ve been attempting to record as much of the process of designing and building a Jewelry Armoire / Lingerie Chest of drawers as I can manage. The effort to document the work on my personal site is already substantial, so I wasn’t able to duplicate the blog posts over here. I started this project on 11/1/2013 and am 2 days from completing it. I’ve lived with this project in my brain for so long now that I have mixed feelings about being done with it. It&...

Jewelry Case Build #1: Rough Cutting Parts

82 days ago by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

I decided to build, what I think is, a nice jewelry case for my Niece’s birthday this summer. The case is Walnut with Bird’s Eye Maple for drawers and accents. There are some secondary 1/8” panels that will be either Baltic Birch or hardboard. Plans are from an older issue of Wood magazine. Here’s what it should look like when complete: Yesterday I cut everything but the hardboard to rough size. Then I dadoed out 10 tiny rails and stiles for half lap ...

Shop Notes #3: "No End In Sight" The documentary.

295 days ago by vipond33 | 20 comments »

This is a trick that many, if not most of you, already know. But it’s a good one and bears repeating. Quite recently I read this: “but I am still working on trying to make a box with no start and no finish and thus far have only been able to wrap my boxes on three sides”. (noted on KK’s fine project). The process has been around for a long time, but I remember independently figuring this one out a while ago and thinking what a smile it would bring to the aver...

Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) #1: Design

267 days ago by Garry | 12 comments »

I’ve been thinking about this for a while. I’m a contract engineer so we have to move every few years. My shop is usually one side of a two car garage with makeshift shelves. I sometimes add some cheap cabinets but end up leaving them when we move. A good dust collection system is out of the questions so I usually do a lot of my work in the driveway. This means carry saw horses and plywood for makeshift benches and wheeling tools on rollers in and out. There are many trips back an...

Arts and Crafts Library Desk #1: Building Legs, Cutting Mortises

228 days ago by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

Well after taking second place at the Portland Woodworking Show with the last project, a cherry trundle bed, it was time to start the next project. -----The current project is a small library desk for my son’s room. He helped in the design phase, choosing corbels over spindles for the sides of the desk. We also have a special white oak board with a bullet lodged in it. Caden decided he wanted to incorporate it into the desk. -----I am fortunate to have a stack of 400 b.f. of white...

Making a Router Plane

482 days ago by nobuckle | 7 comments »

Ever since I saw Mafe's router plane I’ve had the desire to make one. As I do most often I look here on LJs for inspiration. Well, I found it. As I searched I came across this gem of a router plane made by Tinnocker. Tinnocker got his inspiration from Mafe’s design as well. I used a picture of Tinnockers design to come up with my version of a router plane. The body of the plane is hard maple. The handles are from some old chair spindles I had laying around, The plane iron is a ...

Ruler stop – nice and cheapAnd fits your ruler with guarantee..Ok That’s a promise, so I better keep it! You need: some scrap plywood, scrap hardwood, a thumb screw (or bolt), and a threaded insert (I used 5mm). Here is the result, so now it’s up to you if you want to follow… Find a piece of scrap hardwood.Make a size that fits your ruler plus a little on each side, and a depth that match the insert plus a little extra (I’m metric, so I will spare you the meas...

Secrets of the String Box Revealed #1: Intro and Invitation

1419 days ago by newTim | 14 comments »

This summer’s projects have been boxes. Lots and lots of boxes. Somewhere along the way I got the idea of combining the wrapping technique with a simple inlay to see how hard it would be to align the lines all around the box. In other words, at the corners. Turns out it is not that hard to do. So I’ve been experimenting. I’ve posted the first completed boxes as a Project and will post more upon completion. The photos below give an overview of this technique and the pi...

terryR's Bench Blog #1: Cutting and pasting the legs

570 days ago by terryR | 19 comments »

Welcome to terryR’s Bench Build Blog… I’m sure you know the story…I need a bench…so, let’s build one, right? Only problem is that I’m very much a beginner woodworker, so a bench can be quite intimidating when first considered. Luckily, I recently purchased Paul Seller’s book Working Wood 1 & 2 which is full of information on using hand tools. I’ve learned quite a bit from hanging out in the forums on LJ’s…but I also love to have a good book ...
