Tutorial: Installing Side Rail Hinges

10-06-2017 09:01 PM by Ron Stewart | 2 comments »

If, like me, you are new to box making, you may be apprehensive about installing hinges. The number of options is large and bewildering and, with hinge installation being one of the final steps in the construction process, fear of ruining a nearly completed box is a valid concern. I’m not experienced enough to help you wade through all of the hinge options (Roger Bean’s excellent blog post Some Thoughts on Box Hinges might help with that), but I can can tell you how to inst...

Marquetry card table by John Linnell #1: A bit of history and building the frame

04-25-2016 02:10 AM by Longcase | 8 comments »

I remember the moment I became interested in marquetry, it was while on vacation in England that I visited Keddlestone Hall ,a National Trust property in Derbyshire and saw this card table. The table was made in 1765 by the cabinetmaker John Linnell The marqueteur who worked for the Linnell firm at the time was Christopher Fuhrlohg, who was Paris trained possibly in the Simon Oeben workshop. Fuhrlohg was a Swedish cabinetmaker who returned to his native country a few years later...

3D Router #2: X-Axis

07-29-2017 01:44 PM by bj383ss | 3 comments »

So on with the 3D router build. I have had this project complete for several months but realized I never post the updates on LJ’s. So all this is copy and pasted from my GJ thread. I have about 96% of the materials and parts to complete. Missing a few misc screws. Been working on it the last 2 days and here is my progress. Cutting and drilling the aluminum angle iron for the X axis runners. I clocked all the screws. Both sides done. This is simple work...

Making The Very Small Wood Hinge III

07-09-2017 04:26 PM by Dan | 6 comments »

Latest refinements on my small hinge making process. First, an upgrade on my router sled which allows better control and smoother sliding with excellent accuracy. That Ridgid router in the picture is still going strong after years of heavy use. Set up to plane maple hinge halves to 1/8”. I want to cut down the time it takes to make these so I need to develop standard procedures with detail. So, after planing they are cut to identical lengths and widths. When I am trimming thes...

05-31-2017 06:40 PM by Ronald G Campbell | 14 comments »

Many of you may have noticed I am not posting much any more. Well after 10 years retired I have gone back to work. I think it is only going to be part time but we will see I have bought a small company AZ Carbide. They are a distributor of carbide cutting bits made for the woodturning community. The company is 7 years old and distributes product world wide. My intention is to grow the business and hand it off to one of the grandkids Currently we sell typical carbide cutters like...

Uploading Photos –  I’m sure this has been addressed before, but I thought I would offer a tutorial for the Windows® users out there, nonetheless.

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #5: Veneer Resawing- Bottoms

03-07-2017 04:05 AM by TungOil | 4 comments »

I spent some time this weekend setting up to resaw my veneers. I put together a quick jig to help assure my veneer thickness came out as even as possible. Since even a variance of just 0.005” over ten slices of veneer could add up to nearly 1/16”, I made sure my jig was parallel to the blade. In addition, I flipped the board for each slice of veneer to cancel out any error accumulation. Each veneer slice is 5-1/4” wide and 5’ long. The cuts take about 18 m...
