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 | 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...

It is amazing but once I started making the 2 end grain cutting boards for the class…. I got caught up in the moment and just had to make some more… I have some really nice European Walnut, New Guinea Rosewood, Camphor Laurel and Wild Cherry…. so I ripped them down and…..here are a few more in the rough… and some still in the clamps… and one ready for sanding before crosscutting… So far another eight end grain boards in the last two days̷...

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 ...

End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 #10: Second glue up.

06-24-2011 02:59 AM by degoose | 6 comments »

You really need to take your time with this glue up.. to make sure that the board ends up flat… Apply a small amount of glue.. Spread it evenly with a roller…. Use cauls to keep the ends level…When glueing make sure that each piece is level with either side and apply just enough pressure to see a little glue squeeze out…More tomorrow..

End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 #9: Just when.....

06-13-2011 01:40 PM by degoose | 3 comments »

Just when we were getting going… have had a short hiatus from the workshop… birthdays, anniversaries, deliveries and visits to the University… these have kept me the workshop and thus from finishing the class… and now off to Sydney for the Timber and Working with Wood Show… If the volcanic cloud allows the planes to land… So will be about a week before I post the final glue up and sanding and finished segments of the class.. Most of you will be able to ...

This was a comment I received from a great LJ mate, Joe. Seems that some folks think this is dragging on… so .. Now We’re Moving…. The blanks are out of the clamps it is time to move on to the next step… Again this lesson is on video… so just sit right back and enjoy the presentation… There are a few key points that I wish to elaborate on…. Hearing protection .... I am aware I was lax in not using it in the previous video.. so Beth thanks &#...

End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 #7: Fairly straight forward???

06-09-2011 12:34 PM by degoose | 17 comments »

The next step, now that the timber is dressed to size…..and more fun than sanding… The Glue Up… Notice I have purposely left the outer pieces longer… this is to help when the cross cutting is done.. The clamps are set up to size and all pieces are rotated 90 degrees on edge [all exept the last one] and glue is applied to the edge…only one edge receives glue… this makes it quicker if you are doing a production run…I use Titebond III… ...
