The EZ mitre technique

07-26-2010 10:55 PM by BritBoxmaker | 74 comments »

Hello all. Well I seem to have whet the appetite a bit so here goes for a ‘novel’ technique for making mitred boxes. Its a bit like making a box out of paper, like they showed you at school, using a ‘net’. Only in 3D, with wood and a tablesaw (not sissors). Well first comes the board Its made from alternating strips of Maple and Rosewood of varying thickness. I won’t bore you with the details on how to make it suffice to say that all the corners must b...

Video: Homemade Router Lift #3

04-06-2014 12:52 PM by JSB | 4 comments »

When I sold my table saw station both of my routers and lifts went with it. I’m finally getting around to making another router table but first I needed the lift. For those who are interested I put together a quick video of the construction. I used John’s plan from ibuildit.ca for the third time. I have no complaints with this plan and it works great. Because it’s a paid plan I didn’t go into any exact details. The plans are detailed and well worth the asking price. ...

Ribbon and Bow Box Techniques

03-19-2013 03:30 PM by Lenny | 22 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...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #8: Cutting the Corner 45 Degree Angles

03-11-2013 04:58 AM by Boxguy | 17 comments »

A Quick, Accurate Way To 45 Your Corners If you build boxes at all, eventually you tire of cranking your blade from 90 degrees to 45 degrees and back…I did. So I built this simple jig, and now I can cut all 8 ends of a box accurately in about 5 minutes, AND STILL LEAVE MY TABLE SAW SET AT 90 DEGREES. Assumption: I am assuming that you have already laid out the board for your sides and have cut all four sides of your box to length. Short side, long side, short side, long side...

Mahogany Depth Gauge

10-30-2012 03:02 AM by TheBoxStoreCraftsman | 3 comments »

My step father is an avid wood turner and we where talking shop one day a couple or months ago and I found out throughout our conversation (yes I was listening and paying attention) that he was in need of a depth gauge to use when turning the cool bowls he makes in his home shop! I thought this would be a neat project to make while using the box store craftsman philosophy of Re-purposing materials, being a frugal craftsman and filling a need in the shop! I look through my old woodwor...

Mirror Inlay

09-24-2012 03:52 AM by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

Here is my process for cutting the inlay shown on Glen Huey’s mirror frame. First I used a 2-1/8” forstner bit to cut a hole for the template. The template is made from 1/4” mdf core plywood, and a couple 2” wide strips of mdf on the underside. The underside of the jig is shown here. The mdf strips trap the 3-1/2” workpiece, and center the hole. My walnut stock was less than 3-1/2” wide, so I wedged it in place. Here is the jig and the route...
