Cutting Board: How To's #1: Zig Zag Cutting Board - How To:

10-04-2010 11:38 PM by McLeanVA | 57 comments »

For those of you who asked me for a tutorial on how to make the zig zag legless vegetable death table (cutting board), here is my best shot. I am far too impatient to take photos when I work, so I decided to illustrate the process using some good old Adobe PhotoShop. I hope you find this useful and informative. I will outline the process in 10 steps below. I have assumed that when viewing these steps that basic woodworking skills are familiar to you. If you have questions, or run into snag...

Cherry File Cabinet #4: Box Joints - 2nd Attempt

01-01-2015 03:52 PM by JimYoung | 6 comments »

Thanks for the comments and suggestions on my last post. I don’t have a dado blade yet, but after a quick search I found a box joint jig for a single blade table saw. It is basically a drill bit that is the same size as the kerf of the saw blade stuck into a piece of wood. I did a test cut in some plywood and found a drill bit that just fit. I then drilled an undersize hole in some scrap wood and pressed the bit into place. The only restriction here is that the bit be closer to the...

Flip Top Miter Saw / Planer Stand #1: Design Concept

01-06-2013 10:16 AM by Stace | 3 comments »

I’ve been a woodworker for 25 years, but I’ve never written about my experiences. Like many of you, I too tired of always digging out my miter saw, lifting it up on my Black & Decker Workmate, using it, only to put it back down on the ground so I could use the work surface for something else. I decided to make a stand for the miter saw, and started browsing a number of articles in either Woodsmith, Popular Woodworking or Woodworkers Journal. There were lots of ideas, but it...

Shop Organization #3: Flip Top-Planer Cart Part 1. and Screw Thread Question

01-14-2008 07:33 AM by gizmodyne | 12 comments »

Planer cartI decided to build a flip top cart for my planer. I looked through several forums, magazines, and plans and decided on a hybrid of the Wood and Woodsmith plans. My drawings and notes. I am using plywood left from building the shop. It is a rough luan. A different look for shop stuff. My first rip with the SawStop. Very cool. Dead accurate. So different from using my little Ridgid. The top is made of two matching pieces. I cut a dado in the top to house a 1/2” ste...

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

06-23-2011 07:26 AM by shipwright | 61 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...

End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 #12: Recessed handles...

06-27-2011 10:26 PM by degoose | 5 comments »

After sanding the boards, the router table was set up with a dish cutter bit and some timber clamped to the table to act as limiting stops. The end of the boards were then passed over the bit to create the recesses… This was done in several passes.. raising the bit after each pass. There is a little burn mark on the ends but a lot of sanding will remove this… lol Nah… I can live with a little burn… it will blend in ok with some oil… As you can see ...

End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 #11: Grain orientation... just a little bit more..

06-27-2011 08:40 AM by degoose | 7 comments »

Not really part of the class but I think it emphasises that grain orientation is paramount…This morning I dressed some European Wild Cherry and some European Walnut to make another End Grain Board… When I saw how the grain was running in one piece of the walnut I thought about how I could give it a little extra oomph…. A bit blurry but you get the idea…the dark part of the walnut get larger as you move from left to right… both top and bottom.. But what ...
