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

1127 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...

Steps Cutting Board Version 2 (Two Step)

1436 days ago by SPalm | 67 comments »

This is a second generation Steps cutting board made out of walnut, maple, and cherry. The first Steps board I made used a basic square with edge of maple and cherry to make it a block and a notch to do the stepping. I wanted to try to make a stepping board using the hex Tumbling Block design, and this is what I came up with. In order to make the hex do the stepping, I needed to notch all three sides, as can be seen in the Sketchup drawing. The cool thing here is that it steps in two di...

Cutting board build blog.

1564 days ago by Sinister | 30 comments »

I recently uploaded pictures of a cutting board (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/30543) and several fellow LJs asked me to show how it was put together. Subsequently, Patron quickly deduced the process and wrote a nice blog showing the step by step process for how to achieve the pattern. I encourage anyone who is interested to take a look because he has some nice pictures outlining the process. http://lumberjocks.com/patron/blog/15074. I thought I would add a short amendment to his blog de...

Black and White Dots inc. Basic Mitred Box

1574 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 23 comments »

This is an earlier project of mine that also neatly shows one of the simpler box making techniques I use, that of the mitred box with drop-on lid. First we see the basic components: On the left are the four sides, each with a 3mm slot routed in near the bottom to hold the base. The base is bottom right and is two layers of 1.5mm birch aeroply. The top is the last piece, top right. This particular one is a three layer sandwich; 3mm design, 3mm ply and 3mm maple (this bottom 3mm will loc...

Greenhouse #1: The Beginning

1919 days ago by Zuki | 2 comments »

I have not been posting any projects in a while, so I thought I would start 2009 with a greenhouse. I’m sure I can cross post to GT and HR . . . however I will do it here first. We had looked at purchasing one, however the good ones are really expensive and the cheaper ones (while not much cheaper) have quality issues. We already had several raised garden beds from last year as a base so we decided on building a poly sheathed greenhouse to cover the raised beds. The two in the picture...

There are multiple ways you can use these videos:1. See how somebody else is cutting dovetails and maybe get some idea how to improve your technique2. Learn how to cut dovetails from scratch3. Confirm some of the frustrations/solutions you have Use the comments to give extra hints or talk about what works/...

Projects #4: John White FWW Workbench - Planning and Milling

2565 days ago by Jeff | 21 comments »

This is my interpretation of this cleverly designed bench by Fine Woodworking’s shop manager, John White. There have been a few mentions of this bench on the site and I have been eagerly anticipating having the time to build my version of the bench. I’ve had the lumber for about a month but had to sacrifice time in the shop to get our condo ready for sale this summer. Those preparations are all behind KT and I now and I can finally work in the shop when I want to. We’ve h...
