I am using Hard Maple and Walnut both are surfaced flat and cut 1” x 9” x 14&...

Hand Tool Journey #13: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 1

05-10-2013 04:27 AM by Airframer | 0 comments »

OK, so after my successful handle replacement I have the confidence to try something I have wanted to build up for a while. I need a layout compass and have been planning this out in my head for about a month now. Today was a day of trial and error. I don’t have any real plans drawn so this is a “make it up as I go” project. I spent the morning piecing together the hinge portion of the compass. I found some plans online and scaled them down by about half so they wou...

How to use a Kerfmaker (trying to help out!) Blog.

09-21-2010 09:14 PM by mafe | 39 comments »

How to use a KerfmakerOk, many asked me this question, and I have seen it again and again on LJ. If you need to find out how to make one, you can see my Kerfmaker 'Brass'n wood'. Another fun gadget is the tenonmarker:http://lumberjocks.com/projects/39236 I’ll try to explain, as well as I can, feel free to ask questions if I do not make myself clear (I’m only human): Collect what is needed, in this case a base stock and two thinner side stocks, and of course a Kerfmaker...

Secret-compartment pencil holder.

06-08-2012 07:17 PM by Stevinmarin | 34 comments »

I designed this project specifically for kids to make. I thought about what kinds of things I liked as a kid, and anything with a hidden compartment fascinated me. Even today, I would love to have one of those Scooby-Doo spinning bookcases that leads into another room! Anyway, this is an easy project that can be made with the fewest of tools and very little woodworking experience.

shop upgrades #4: Making the delta 6" jointer dust collection ACTUALLY work.

04-24-2009 12:21 AM by Julian | 5 comments »

I have dealt with the sub par dust collection opening of this jointer for over ten years now. Today I went out to the shop and said no longer will I deal with a clogged dust chute, and wood chips all over the shop. All I did to correct the problem was to box out the chute and make it 4” deep all the way to the bottom, then put the chut facing 90 degrees to the chute, which would solve the problem of chips collecting and clogging up the chute. Well, I just ran a ton of boards through the...

Cove Moldings on the Tablesaw & The Parallelogram Cove Jig

10-11-2012 03:44 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 7 comments »

Many people are surprised when they find out they can make incredibly beautiful (and large) coves moldings on the tablesaw. I know I was! In this episode, I’ll give you a rundown on the process for creating both symmetrical and asymmetrical coves. I’ll show you several ways to set up for this operation, but my favorite involves the use of a parallelogram jig that was inspired by a Fine Woodworking Article by Stuart Sabol (subscription required). His jig is primarily for setup ...

A walnut sofa table with Jacobean influences

04-30-2008 03:36 AM by John Fry | 17 comments »

First I want to thank everyone who visited and responded to my last two project blogs; A small table that took a whole lot of work A veneering extravaganza! As always I welcome your comments AND critiques on this latest project. This commissioned sofa table’s concept was borrowed from a late seventeenth century round gate-leg table. The client wanted it in a dark walnut with “antique shading”, and asked that the back of the table be as detailed as the front so it could be u...

Lisa's Jewelry Cabinet - Part 2

04-30-2012 03:01 AM by William | 16 comments »

When we left off in Part 1, I had drawers gluing up.To hang the drawers in the cabinet, I used the sliding dovetail jig on the Stumpy Nubs dovetail machine and cut slots. However, I didn’t use a dovetail bit. I used a straight bit. The clamping feature on the machine just gave me a convenient way to cut them safely.Then I cut and glued some strips inside the cabinet for those slots to ride on.This took careful measurement. I wanted to leave a sixteenth of an inch clearance between each ...
